G'day Mud,

No responses after all ya trouble .

here's one: Turn ya stock mirrors 180 degrees.
On the stock FXD & DC the mirrors are the widest part,

if ya turn 'em you gain about 1 and a half inchs on EACH side,

which makes a real improvement for splittin' lanes, ( I'm in traffic every day).

It actually looks better too because they sit in tighter almost up against the master cyl,
bit hard to read the "appear closer' warning, but i have memorised that message

cya when ya come down under Mud.

Graham.
Yeah, G'day Graham. Bout 70F here in Texas.

Thanx for the input. Sounds like a winner.

Got any pix of yours??

Looking forward to getting over there one a these daze.

Thanks for the input here Joe.
Good ones all, no doubt.

Man, your posting looks like a sleazy eBay ad though.

Do you really need to emphasize with the humongous fonts??

Keep em comin.

Thanx for downsizing the fonts Joe.

Fits in a lot better now.

Glider, that's a definite plus on the list.

Cain't get much more mileage outta 2canzapaint.

Big diff for those of us unchromers.

How about something for the Black'd out Exhaust mod? I forget who originally posted it. I will try and sift through the board and find it if possible.

Basic run down was just to purchase some Flat Black Paint. The BBQ paint you could find at like Lowes/Home Depot seems to have worked the best. I spent about $18 I believe for 2 cans, masking tape, and sandpaper. I have logged about 7K miles since I painted my exhaust with only a minor scratch of the paint due to removal of Mid-control's. For those of you who want the black look for cheap, this is an easy one to do...and nobody can tell they weren't ceramic coated unless you tell them if done right.

***********************************
I initially thought that my fender chop job would qualify
but I forgot that I'm using a Harley tail light/brake light turn signal thingy
that probably cost over 100 by itself.

***********************************
ED, throw in your pix.

The light thingy is after the fact.

Bobbing off the tail end is a popular topic.

Front turn signal relocation..............
1/8" stainless steel ruffly 3/4" by 1 1/2"..............
Drill hole in one endbig enough for clearance of the triple tree clamp bolt...............
Drill hole in other end 3/8" (clearance for 5/16' bolt)..................
Cut a piece of 3/8" ID tubing about 3" long.................
Mount one end of the 1/8" stainless bar to the lower triple clamp bolt, then mount the signal to the other end using the tubing as a spacer.
I don't have any pics. right now but I'll help anyone who's interested.
I'm not much of a button pusher so here's a crappy sketch.
Thanx RIDA.

Post up some pix, if you get a chance.

What is a ruffly??

Pretty basic and I am sure more than a few have done it but paintingthe battery band black (or whatever color you want). I just scuffed it up with steel wool and hit it with a couple coats of black, and a couple coats of clear. Did the same with hi-way peg brackets.
Mounted my rear blinkers flush to the strut mount bar, I can't remember what size bolt I used length wise but it was around 1" or 3/4"
relocate the stock horn to clean it up a bit (I have not done it yet but it will happen soon, but I know mud and a few others have write ups on it)


I hope others have some cool stuff to add
Three good ones TBoy. Thanx.

Basic is good.

i wanted to improve on kuryakyns iso stirrups
although i liked them it just seamed like my heels were always slipping off
so i wanted something a little bigger and more in line with the pegs
so what i did was take some scrap aluminum diamond plate trimmed to the size
that i wanted four small button head allen bolts and nylock nuts (cant remeber size)
washers placed under diamond plate for spacers so the aluminum wouldnt flex
when i tighten them down
and some 3m grip tape
i think the total spent was around five bucks
Nice job c10.

Industrial style.

My favorite.
