What did you do to your V-Rod today
 
I noticed we didn't have one of these, and figured I'd make one. I mod on some car forums, and they are usually pretty interesting topics.

So did you mod, maintain, fix something?

Today
- I changed and bled the rear brakes (now its very very stiff hmmm)
- Relocated the rear signal to the shock mounts using a kit (required pulling the shock tops, rear fender, under-fender, cutting the under fender, and extending the wires)
- Installed the side-mount from Killervrod.... had to cut my plate smaller, but looks good. I didn't install the LED yet.
- Removed the Screaming Chicken exhaust and packed them up, getting TAB's this week

I rode for a few hours before work, finally removed the rusted-ass stripped screws from the sissybar/baseplate and replaced them. Now I'm home and about to hop back on for a jaunt...

Pulled my EXT17 battery and swapped in an EXT20, which involved rerouting some cables and cutting the front lip of the airbox. I wish I'd have done this a year ago.

Swapped ugly orange lenses for the smoked kit front and rear.

AOW 09-20-2010 09:27 PM

cleaned it off w/a California duster

Bruce Helland 09-20-2010 09:46 PM

I rode around town running errands

Fatz 09-20-2010 09:49 PM

Removed all of the touring stuff (engine guards, touring pillion, saddlebags, windshield). I like having the stuff on there but the bike looks alot nicer without it all.

VRTURK 09-20-2010 10:02 PM

completely neglected it :(

Dr Dave 09-20-2010 10:13 PM

I changed the anti-freeze and broke the drain plug while tightening it. :banghead:

Then I thoroughly washed the bike in hopes that the plug would hold pressure anyway. I have an advanced safety rider course to attend tomorrow morning.
