    Couple of things I made

    Hi all,
    Thought I would share a few things I made w everyone.

    Hand guards
    I wanted some bark busters but didn't want to spend much (or any really) money. For about $9 I made these up on the floor of my garage w some wrenches and c clamps.

    I also made a headlight guard for the grand cost of about $2 . I cut up and bent a cookie cooling rack ( pack of three was $6). It mounts using the two headlight bolts on the sides under the shroud. It is def not the strongest guard out there but it is stiffer than you might think ( that's what she said) and I like how it looks.

    I also got and put a storage tube on. Just zip tied for now.

    I also just did my new clutch , valve adjustment etc all for the first time seems ok although I am not 100% sure my clutch is adjusted right.....it grabs late still and drags a bunch when in gear with the clutch pulled in. If anyone has thoughts feel free to share.

    Thanks and ride safe.

    nice job, looks great, feels good to make your own stuff. I made my rear luggage rack for the TW, works great.

    Cool bark busters. And a sweet "that's what she said" joke, my God that never gets old for me.

    Bentzra . On the clutch check that the return spring down on the case is set correctly ( there are a few threads on TW clutch's you could sort through.....EX : there is a clutch adjustment inside the case. ). Really like the hand guard's , smart move to locate the in-board anchor point on the handle bar mount.....makes for an easier install I'm sure .
