The S100 arrived on Saturday, so I hosed the bike down and then rinsed it off. Not the best cleaning job ever, but for next to zero effort, it was pretty damn good.

I also got a cheapo headlight shell from eBay (with integrated turn signals) and then put one of our LED bulbs into it ($45 from our website). New universal controls are mocked up as well (also from our website for $65).

The headlight bucket required a little modification, but nothing a hole saw and a drill press couldn't fix.

New grips are already on the way and I have a battery arriving soon as well.

Hows the light from the bucket with the LED? I have the same shitty bucket, the bulb that came in it lasted less than 5 hours. I put a regular spare in it but it still kinda sucks. If the LED is good I'll probably grab one from you. Still haven't had a chance to get the accessory lights I bought from you mounted yet, but hope to tonight or tomorrow.

It's better than the halogen, but I know the bulbs can do even better with a decent reflector. On my Duc, this bulb will throw usable light for 150 yards. On this shell, maybe 80 or 90?

I should upgrade both then. I have a bucket and lens/reflector from the GL1100 but the trim ring to hold them together is missing. That might be the better idea.

The grips and battery arrived.

The ETZ5G barely fits, so I'll have to make sure I have some insulation in place.

Looks to me like the EarthX actually doesn't fit.  Your terminals don't have the screws or connectors in the pic.  Plus, if you want to run a plug for the tender, you'll need even more gap.

Yup. I'll have to make a few modifications.

I'm assuming it won't just turn sideways?

Unfortunately, no. I probably should have gone with the deeper tray and then it would probably be OK to stand upright. I have some ideas, though.
