Finally accepted it wasn't getting any warmer. Stripped the rear apart for regular greasing and preparation to send the shock off for a refresh.
I am considering removing the remote hydraulic preload adjuster and going with just a normal threaded adjuster. I guess it will depend on how easy to find an adjuster and how much it will cost. IMG_0389.JPG IMG_0396.JPG fullsizeoutput_137.jpeg

Yeah they make the square/round connector fused at 400 amps with the circuit built in for the portable jump boxes to read. I have one on my bike so I don't have to take up space with the clamps. Bonus comes with an SAE adapter so if I do want to hook up a tender or a air infiltrator I can do that off the same wiring.

So I got this cable/connector. Thanks for the lead. Curious where you routed it to and how you "hang" the ends for accessibility. Cables aren't too long. (Too bad the black has the added length, with our positive on the bottom.) I won't use it for tender as I have the coax setup, but will leave the pigtail attached as it has the weatherproof cap.

I ran it out the back of the battery compartment panel along the frame rail there below the gas tank with some zip tires to the rail. Thought about just tucking it in that compartment. But figured if I ever had to jump it, I;m probably going to be in a bad place and not want to screw around, as Id just bump start it if I was able.

I was looking at trying to secure it with velcro where I could reach it from the back of the side panel, but it's a little tight. Pulling the side panel is pretty quick though. Remove the seat to get to the Allen wrench and 4 quick disconnect screws. Going to see if it will reach up by the front of the gas tank.

Replaced my front brake switch. It was sticking (don't understand it because I could hear it clicking off and on but the brake light was staying on when it should have been off only with the front brake lever actuating). Wasn't hard other than getting to some of the wire clamps way down in the cowling behind the forks. Maybe this will also fix my cruise control issue (get the flashing yellow light when disengaging with the front brake lever). We shall see.

Took my new horn back off and threadlocked it. This is the horn, a Fiamm 72112 "Freeway Blaster". It's not the loudest thing ever, but at $16 I thought I'd try it out. All I can say is, at highway speeds I could never hear the stock horn. I can at least hear this one. It sounds pretty nice, not like the apologetic "beep beep" of the stocker.

Where!!??!! Thank You in Advance! How long was turn around? How were your valves? What mileage?
Casey Cycle City, Newport News Virginia. Really good people. I think it took them a few days. I dropped it off on a Saturday with the understanding that it would be two weeks before I could pick it back up. They called the following Tuesday to let me know the bike was done.
