I lubed the air filter and put it back in the housing , then wire-tied my new longer brake lines and all the wires I had to loosen in order to install bar risers.
My Russell day Long Seat should go into production this week , and my new Holan panniers are waiting to be picked up in Rochester new York.
And it's freezing shitty weather out .
I added a plug in port to my bike for my Gerbing electric gloves, and added a curly extension cord to my jacket so it's not trying to pull the wires out of my jacket sleeves when i move around on the bike.
This kind of plug would be ideal for the battery charger too i would think. Easy to install as you have room to get your fingers in behind the panel once you take the seat off. Two minute installation.
I also replaced my rear brake pads with some cheap Chinese knockoffs. Sintered pads, great looking. Fit perfectly. two sets of pads cost $20 with free shipping.
I wouldn't use those cheap chinese brake pads. Usually I wouldn't wanna tell you what stuff to buy, but a friend of mine has been in a very bad accident because of cheap chinese brake pads.
On his first ride after having them installed when he had to brake fairly hard the braking stuff (the black&yellow stuff on your picture) separated from the brake pads (the green/blueish stuff on your picture) and he slammed into a wall because he had lost all his braking power on the front wheel.
So I really would never ever use cheap brake pads.
Installed a set of altrider bars & skid plate only took 4.4 hours enjoyed it after my 150 mile ride yesterday into carnige & past 1/4 mile of ice on puerto canyon road & out mines road my best adventure yet.Get on with my diy seat next, what a way to spend the winter.
