Re: Sheepskin covers..

Haha... okay thanks guys about the lenses... too many eagle eyes on forum! I'm experimenting with handlebar adjustment heights/angles and I didn't bother to rotate the blinker lenses.

Re: Sheepskin covers..

I adjusted my bars up earlier in the day... getting a feel for different angles and didn't bother to adjust the turn signals.
I'm in the fence with the sheepskin.. comfy yes.. not exactly the look I was hoping for... wish the seat was smaller or something.

Re: Portland peeps went for a ride yesterday..

Good eye Kurt...
The R50 has the wrong valve covers.. he got a good deal and wanted better looking ones than what he had.

Re: R51/3 No Spark

Did something accidently get disconnected in the headlight bucket?..
Is the key getting a full connection?
