In fairness, it was my fault putting the wrong bulb in and Iíve had a few cars where a oil change turned into a saga

But I couldnít help but LOL when you said this because it is so true yet I really enjoy the bike moving or stationary. Forget the money, my labor in cleaning alone is nuts!

I can't argue with you there. Although sometimes frustrating, I am by no means a mechanic, but I also really enjoy tinkering and most of all learning.
Just when I was getting really comfortable with my 848, she disappears.
Now I have to learn how to do an oil change all over again hahahaha

Any excuse to play with tools and drink beer!

Come down here, it was 81 yesterday. Im booked for the first couple of tracks this month already and trying to figure out the schedule for more.

Couple of friends went down to Florida to get a head start all the way back in Feb. Even in Florida Id think Id be rocking a rain suit just to block some wind.

It is not better or worse. It is more an ease of mind.

It is a standalone unit, which works on 12v.
Could have relocated the oem one to the oil line and be done with it. Now I have a small digital monitor near my dashboard, so I can monitor more closely the differences in oil pressures. If something is wrong I know it before the red dasboard light will go on. Hoping I will "catch" it before real damage has been done. Hope this makes some sense.

Makes sense I need to figure out how to get mine working on my lap timer as it has the function, but when I hook it up I'm not getting a reading that makes sense..

The problem I have is having two bikes is taking up too much time LOL

Do you have a thread about the issues with the laptimer, or maybe you could share some more information about the issues you experience? Maybe we can figure it out together?

I will but this year I'm going to be lucky just to get basics working on the laptimer, last year I ran it with just the GPS so I'd really like to get the monitors hooked back up.

I still haven't found which box my wife didn't put my tank pads in yet, but I did have a little time before work. So I put on the reflective wheel tapes and whitewalled my new tires. Man, I heart raised white letters. Only had time for the rear though (That's what she said)

Swapped out my HID for LED. The only reason I upgraded to HID is I hate the yellow lights, I rarely ever ride at night.

The HID upgrade is a pita to install and replace the bulbs when they go out. You add some weight and itís hard to get a clean install. Cutting the hole in the dust cover is mandatory for the wiring that goes to the ballast. The hole not a big deal but the wiring makes for clutter.

So I went searching, all the LEDs have a heat sink so I wasnít so sure even if I found some the would fit inside the dust cover it would be a good idea, because the heat would have no where to go.

I wasnít seeing anything small so I took a gamble on these from amazon. BEAMTECH H11 LED Headlight Bulb,... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XHDYTGL...p_mob_ap_share


I wish I would of taken a before pic of the HiD wiring...

These I think look much better. I had to open up the holes and make them oval to give the heat sinks some room. This is rough cut over the winter Iíll clean up the edges maybe make a seal.

I sold my 848 on Wednesday.

Iím now down to (4) Ducatis (for now).

With three street bikes, the 848 was always the third one to be ridden.
