It's been a busy week.

First I replaced my clutch with a new Barnett Kevlar Extra Disc clutch


I realized on my last trip I had no tail light. Looking at the connectors I could see several were a nice greenish color on the wiring harness and there was all kinds of debris inside the LED tail light. Figuring that the wiring harness was bad I borrowed a new in the box one from my local parts hoarder Screw Loose Dan and tore the fender off to give it a try. Sure enough, that was the culprit.



Now to put the bike back together again and try out that new clutch



Next week I will replace the rear master cylinder (again!!!) and put a new tire on the rear. Leaving Friday Sept 28 for a ride about in the south east ending in the Nashville TN area on Thursday Oct 4 and then competing in a 31 hour rally on Oct 5 ending in Fredericksburg VA on Oct 6

Moved my regulator up to make room on my frame for my battery to be moved to the center & lower, the ol lady put my bell on for me, rerouted my rear brake cable where its supposed to be to clean it up some & charged up my battery. Hopefully tomorrow I can make a new bracket & mount the battery, test my wiring & her yell.

Dodgetrucken,
Plz post pics. I've wanted to do the same thing. I wanted to lower the center of gravity and help clean up the bike. I'm curious how it turns out.
