Unhappy Anyone in the Charlotte/Monroe, NC area EXPERIENCED with working on the Vee...

that would like to do some work to it for me against payment of course?

I CAN take it to the suzy shop but there are quite a few things I was going to have done to it
and it's prolly gonna cost a pretty penny to get it done there and needless to say, I'm looking
to save some money on this.

I DO believe in supporting my local dealers and itís a good thing to do for when you want to ask the occasional question but then, there IS the question of having the money.

I can pay cash or trade for stuff or my services. Whichever suits you better.
I have some Vee stuff if youíre interested.

Hereís what I need done:

1. Stator is not charging so that needs to be replaced and possibly rectifier and magnets.
2. Iím getting the modified Clutch basket to fix the chudder.
3. Putting on a Stebel Horn bracket and horn
4. Adding some rocker switches to the bike
5. Adding volt meter
6. Hook up the brake lights to the Givi E55 Maxia case.
7. Fix the leaking reservoir (coolant and someone suspected it was leaking at this T connection)
8. Hook up the Shorai Li-Ion charging cable so that itís outside and I donít have to remove the seat to charge it.
9. Hook up lights and relays for the extra lights so that theyíre ready to hook up
10. Replace levers because the ones I have now are a little far away for my fingers.
11. Replace grips with Grab On grips
12. Hook up a License plate LED
13. Disconnect the Park settingÖĒYou can cut the brown wire from the ignition switch and connect the bike side of the cut brown wire to the green wire.Ē
14. Disconnect the cruise control kit
15. On off switch for the headlights

Right now, the bike isnít charging the batteries at all and I literally canít go anywhere so Iím in a bit of a hurry to get this done. I had made some plans based on having the bike and this of course throws a huge monkey wrench in them.

Thanks

George

See how well the work is done and do a vendor report. Threads like this may interest a number of people, not just you. Think communally rather than individually here.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Well, it's going to be done by an individual, not the suzy shop.....

Labor cost is about half of the shop price.

If he does well and is interested in the possibility of more business, let us know.

Terry at WERKS Clutch Baskets and Final Drive Minders

I was going to take it to Harvey but I have to save money. Trying to pay my mortgage and this was very unexpected.

Dang, sorry to hear that!
Did the PO inform you of all that needed to be done to the bike? Regardless, it will be a better ride when you are done.
I'm still learning my bike and plan to do the clutch mod as soon as I get over this bronchaitis crap.
