Fixed my rattling headlight and wished the weather was better.

Tab Slip ons

New Tab exhaust fitted yesterday. Fabulous sound added to the VRSCX, has to be heard to appreciate in full.

Tab handled my order perfectly, no issues and received within a week.

Had a heat wave of 60 yesterday before the storm came in so I bled my clutch fluid and learned that the second actuator bleed screw is quite buggered up. Need to dress it with a file and see if I can clean it up.

AND I adjusted the shock preload. It was set to 4 and I read that is for riding 2 up which I don't do so I reduced it to 2.

Then had a short ride to check it out. Feels much better.

Jan-Dirk You are the only V Rod rider on the Entire Planet Earth that slid off an inlet manifold clamp at 20 PSI today ! CONGRATULATIONS !! Me, I'm just ordering a few more parts for my new engine build and repacking my 4" Outlet resonator with steel wool packing since my exhaust blew out all the weak fiberglass crap it came with ( BMW Auto exhaust tip fitted to a Bub 7 2-1 ) 200+ mile ride tomm. to Ocala National forest and back to be sure exhaust melody is correct. ( Quality Control )

Got my '02 front wheel cut by Ruthless Designz. Looks good. Big reduction in weight. Had new wheel bearings installed also.
Now to mount the tire...

Put exhaust back on after having it coated, and put stock bars on in place of drag bars.

Rebuilt the gas springs of HD hard saddlebags.
Ok, actually I bought new springs from DIY furniture store for $2 each (also available on Aliexpress for about same price).
Then I removed the ball ends from the original gas springs, drilled them with 5mm drill, tappered M6x1.0 and screwed to the furniture gas springs. Done.

Installed Progressive 444s using a pair of scissors jacks.
That was a bit scary in the beginning.
Things could be a lot easier with somebody help.
