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

Hey how bout those cheap ass input shafts?? Mine broke last year, right at the "relieved" area.... nice, clean break... I was in MI from Fl and took it to a guy, and told him to lay it over on it's side and weld the connector linkage right where I had it.... Ha, he looked at me like I had three eyeballs!!!!.... then, after he looked a little closer at it, he agreed... and, a crisp twenty dollar bill later, I was on my way... Seems to be okay still today....no leaks, and will be a pain in the ass IF I ever have to fix it again.... Regards, Roger.

I just checked and I have 6450 on my last oil change so I drained it today and replenished. Looking over my notes I just changed it the 1st week of March, keep this up and I will be .
