    Cool time lapse video.

    Gotta love those "professionals"...
    These are the Ram Air filters. (Not the exact ones, but similar) Apparently they slip over existing trumpets. I may look into it down the road, but right now I have other things I’m hoping to get to on the bike this winter.

    Not sexy but just as I pulled into the driveway .. gas started leaking from my hose. Whew .. Glad it didnt happen while I was out. I used cheap hose and clamped the clamps to tight and with heat and time it made a small hole. Going to order a genuine Suzuki hose next week. Been meaning to replace the tach cable so I have en excuse to cover the shipping.

    They all broke lose Sunday during a 60 mile ride on bumpy country roads, seemed like all 3 inside of 15 minutes, the 4th and top bracket held.
    My welds were so bad…meh.
    Made steel brackets, drilled and tapped the frame for 5mm bolts, plus locktite.
    Just finished, took all day.

    More text message troubleshooting for Justin's Tiger 1050 resulted in him finding stator ohm check okay phase to phase, but phase to ground shows some continuity. But the volt test phase to phase was good. We had a discussion of how the phase to ground ohm test can be bad, but yet it still produce okay on the volt test (I have my theory.).
    Then determined that these are not functional test, just indications of the characteristic of the component. And then determined that should quit with the academic discussion.

    Then he found this

    Replaced the oil pan on the GS1000 after stripping the drain bolt last oil change.

    Did some minor repair work on the Tuturo auto oiler on the VSTROM after some trail damage in Arkansas over the weekend.
