Thought I’d make my own thread to document my progress on the bike. Going to be putting a lot of work into this thing!
I was going to cut that ziptie, but I was able to slide it up a bit where it didn’t seem to affect how much slack there was. If I were to remove the bolt from the banjo fitting and reroute the cable through the headlight frame it could have given probably 2” more slack though, but I didn’t want to deal with brake fluid.Regarding the brake line.... can also cut the zip-tie that holds it to the headlight bracket, which frees up a nice bit of play.
The mirrors themselves are round and convex, so they give a wide angle of view. Also, they are mounted on a sort of spinning angled plate, so as you rotate them, they offer different viewing angles. Mind you I am not just talking about how the entire mirror assemblies can rotate inward to put them away, but rather just the round mirror itself can spin. I have mine set up to show the blind spots for merging, and they work pretty well. Mounting them farther out to the sides would give increased visibility, and I may decide to do that some day, but for right now they work as needed and look good.Your mirrors are interesting to me.... not trying to be funny, but can you actually see anything behind you? I do want to set like this, but I’m wondering....
😂 😂 😂 the username is just an inside joke thing between my friend and I, but I think it works great as a name out of context. I make a lot of friends gaming online because of it. The avatar is supposed to be an animated image, but I guess this forum doesn't support .gif avatars. I don't have an explanation on why I choose it. I just love it. but I may change it because it doesn't workAlright, I gotta ask;
1. How did you come up with your user name?
2. How did you decide on your avatar?
