Showing off my handy work - May 25, 2010, 09:35 AM

Before pictures of my friends bike with only 20 miles on it.







And after pictures. I had to buy mostly new parts since i couldn't find used ones in good condition. Runs and looks good now. I took it for a 10 mile test ride the other day.

Special thanks to Sara (the one that lives in Frederick) for selling me her old headlight. Worked out great.

wow David, looks great! I wish I had known you a few years ago when I needed my bike fixed - I bought a bunch of new parts from a shop, including a headlight, that apparently I didn't need to glad it went to good use

did you have to replace the gauge cluster or did that glass pop out? My friend has a crack in his and would like to replace it.

a few months after I got my 08, three of us were on a ride. We were on a tight backroad (no lines), came around a corner and a car was in our lane. We were all forced off the road. I had some minor damage - specifically, the two areas that held a bolt and a screw to attach the headlight were broken. At that time, I purchased a new headlight, not knowing that the broken piece could be fixed. Shop wanted my money and I fell for it. Yeah, dumb, I know.

You can just buy the top cover for it. It's about $75. Six screws hold it on. You have to take the gauge cluster out to change it obviously which is super simple. You remove that allen screw below the gauge and pop it out. The gauge cluster has two nipples on the back that pop into rubber grommets.
A new gauge cluster is $500!!!!
