After the first NorCal group ride I had a list of to do's, to do! First on the list was to deal with the spitting and sputtering in water crossings. I did the carb vent mod as suggested by other members on the board. Thanks guys. I also sealed electrical connections with dielectric grease. Not well tested on ride #2 because water levels are down. Next on the list was bar vibration. I had tingleing fingers for well over a week! No kidding! I was concerned that it could be a medical problem popping up. Using another members suggestion, I filled the bars with silicone chalk. It worked! No tingles. Next, MrBracket had a BIG box on his bike that made access to all his goodies quick and easy. I had to have one. A dumpster dive and done! Well almost done. A little Fusion paint on the lid and globs of rattle can bed liner in and on the rest, and done. Next, staying with Tony's matra for TW, Tight Wad, I made a pair of add on oversized pegs. When I say oversized I mean it! It is now hard to up shift for lack of room. Here is where I need help. Is there a shift lever that will fit the T Dub that is about an inch longer? Or should I use Tony's method and stretch the original to make it more useable. I have the ability. Back to the top box. I like the fuctionality of it. Coming off of a 4x4 ATV with front and rear boxes, I like to carry more with me than I probley need. My problem with the box is when I mount and dismount the bike. Being short legged and cripple kneed, I need to use the pegs to stand on to get on and off. This is not a problem most of the time, but if I can't ude the kick stand for any reason, the only other way to get off is to fall off! I don't want to! What have your experiences been with side boxes or side bags in this regard? Do you think this is a better way for me to go? I want to be ready for NorCal ride #3. Suggestions please.
