Well we had the Kosher inner fairing job

Then we did the heated grips on Moe's bike. Being done here in the corner.

And the day is never complete without someone drilling a painted part... caveman drilling his tourpack for a new set of premium HD latches

Cave also did headbolt fins, and the high beam wiring mod.

3 bikes with multiple projects... not bad for a day in the garage.

Well beyond you guys strong arming the left grip... you can see why I said those heated grips are an easy project. If that wouldn't have happened, it would have been crazy easy!

And sometimes I wish I could just watch...

Well I have been through a case and a half of Amsoil 20W-50 in 2 days.

Did Papa Mace's 02 Ultra complete service yesterday.

Today did Sgt Ski's 04 Ultra complete service, as well as a bunch of other mods. Then we also did his wife's Fat Bob complete service and a few other mods.

But one of the mods was swapping out Sgt's front fender skirt... these 6 little bastard Phillips head bolts were F'in red loctited!! You know it's a bastard job when you see this for tools!!

Damn, mine came off real easy. No Loctite just nylon insert nuts. Looks like the stock skirt you took off. Was it replaced before?

Gas Man

No that was the stock skirt we took off. Replaced with a diamond plate version. I failed to get a pic of it though. Maybe talk Medic into snapping a pic of it next time he walks out to his garage near Sgt's bike.

After talking to a few of the guys I picked up some Amsoil oil filters for HDs. Black & Chrome.

So next time one of you guys come here for oil changes... I got this covered. They are suppose to be better than HD or K&N and they are about the same price.

butane lighter on the loc-tited nuts and they'll come right off. only need a couple seconds of heat to warm the goo to soften it, don't go over board on the heat !! I do this trick every day and works great.

What about o-rings, Gas?! :)

I buy one of these for every skoot I buy...

It's worth it regardless of the expense. :) Plus Don's the man! ;)

I need to get my bike to the gas man lift asap to do front forks and lube the clutch cable. Zero time lately.

Gas Man
06-13-2013, 01:32 PM
I usually have o-rings too... derby covers I usually will use silicone on them once... so that covers us. But I also have both of those items in spares as well if needed.


I agree Chain on the K&P I have one on each bike... and told all these guys... but not everybody wants to go that route.

Gotta get the K&P great filter and with a little brake/carb clean she's good as new and slap her back in.
