Afterthought bracket:

Tools:
Saw of some sort (or a CNC mill)
Drill
Taps


I cut mine with a big expensive machine... but that part can be done by hand by anyone.



and I tore the light itself off a dirtbike in a junkyard... I think he charged me a couple bucks for it.


Does anyone who can type know anything more about this forklift brake lining thing? I think I might want to look into it. Pictures? Forklifts don't normally have stop suddenly from 60 mph.

my guess would be that it has to do with the lifting part of the contraption, not the rolling part.

Here's a cheap way to pack or repack de-baffled pipes for a deeper sound:

A friend who rides a Suzuki showed me this link, but it looks to be something you could do to just about any muffler.  I'm giving it a shot on my CB500T's after market pipes.

 ;D I'm gonna do that! Great idea and execution on that dude! I wanted one of the BCR bezels, but I'm alergic to spending that much on a headlight bezel. And now a sloution!

cheap levers...
so on my TX 500 i have 2 diff leavers... i am cheap so i do not want to buy new ones... here is what i do on all my bikes levers...
First mark where you want to make your cut... i like to cut the balls off the ends my levers....



then use a grinder, belt sander, what ever to smooth them out... on harleys i typically will square them off on this bike i just made a smooth oval on the end... then media blast them... sanding works just fine...



then just paint them... either that or polish them... but paint is easy... a powder coater will typically charge like 5 bucks a lever...

I powdered mine, as with the rest of the bike i mixed in a bit of brass flake... but here are the pics... super easy and almost free if you polish... plus it looks cool as hell on the bike
