Air pressure gauge on the air shocks....... I thought I put that in the post.

Just gives me a reading so I can repeat the pressure if I ride two up and adjust the pressure.

DigitalKnight, here's another option but I don't have guages.

Mike, I googled powerline and gave up quickly trying to figure out where you got the handlebars. Can you tell me?

I just bought a VRSCX with a very nice, clean 1.5" bar that looks similar to yours but it has too much pullback for me. I'm 5'11" and wear a 35" long sleeve shirt. I want to keep the look but hoping not to have to do so much trial and error. How tall are you and what is your arm length? Thanks

Scott

Powerline is/was a member on this forum that built a one can custom exhaust from the stock pieces and also made 3 sets of bars. He kept one set, Max had one and I had one. I heard he recently gave a raw set to another member and he is in the process of getting them finished and chromed.

I like it..don't really dislike the style of the stock gauges on my '05 but to relocate them like what you did would be cool.\
Is/was that airbox a custom build or is it available thru a sourse?
