I thought I looked into that and my conclusion wasn't favorable. But I can't remember anything else from that line of thought.

Is it 3 wire?

How big is the sensor? Mine is on the front wheel but you would hardly notice it:

Going off eBay photos, appears to be 3 wire. You are running a stock size wheel? Should work I would think

I can't afford to register the bike. Pretty bummed. Being a home owner and being responsible for others welfare isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Shrug. Guess it'll be next year.

I also have utterly lost the motivation to finish this custom tail project with the decisions I've made. I'm sick of half assing projects. Which is what I was doing. Cutting corners so I could "just ride" but I lost the will to cut the corners.

I'll be reverting several parts of the bike to a stock form for some simplicity, functionality of stock tune and some wind protection for distance.

This bike is going to go back to "stockish" till I either acquire a "daily" and turn this into a project again or I'll find another project. I've just got too many lofty dreams and they aren't letting me have the real fun of going for a ride.

Man I know exactly how you feel... about a year and a half ago when we moved to our own house I thought now I have the space and time to finish the daytona quick. Pffft. I got so fed up with the whole project, ran out of ideas and motivation basically, that I pushed the whole bike into the corner of the garage and covered it with a tarp for three months cause I couldn't bare the sight of the damned thing... One two year old boy running around and another bun in the oven with a company to run, shit I'm lucky if I can make it to the shed once a week after 10pm... And the resources is another thing, there's just not enough money to make every idea happen so you have to prioritize. I was in the intention to build an electric motorcycle, well still am, but when you sum up all the costs down to paper the ends just don't meet, I had collected enough money to finish the Triumph TWICE but both times was forced to use it on something else so eventually in order to not have yet another unfinished wallflower in the shed I had to sell my basically unused snowboard and sailkite as well as the other bike to get the daytona finished. ...and about a month later the doublemass flywheel of my wife's car started rattling so now I have to round up yet another 2k and honestly got no idea where from... When the daytona's gauge broke I was pissed cause it was an expensive piece but I'm even more pissed having to tear down the front harness YET AGAIN to fit another gauge in it's place...

Life's full of choices they say, I have to look at the mirror almost daily saying to myself I'm no Adam Savage, I have the ideas but not the skills, tools, funds nor time to get even a fraction of them off the ground...

Sorry for the rant...but I will tell you this... from first hand experience... if you live in an area where there's cold at wintertime...and you're short of funds...got kids...and no warm garage to fit a car in... don't buy a used italian two seater sports car

I feel for both of you guys. Just over 2 years ago I totalled my bike and bought it back from the insurance company. At the time my son was about 1 years old and his mother could only work a part time job. So I was working full time overnights and full time during the day to make ends meet so the only time I had to work on the bike was my nights off til 7ish am... but the fact that we were barely scraping by I had to basically throw the thing together as cheaply as possible just to get back on the bike.

But I have to say it was worth it to ride again...

current build is on YouTube, check out my channel The Armed DIYer

Shia heard what you said and sent you a message.


Heh!

I assume this means the bike is parked:

?? But if not, get it ridable, do small stuff to it on weekends, in a few months you might surprise yourself as to what the bike is starting to look like. But riding is the point of bikes.

tfw you don't touch a "project" for 4 years



So I touched it for reasons other than to move it...



I actually broke down the forks I had set aside for it, dug through years of shit in the garage and accidentally found the seals and dust caps I bought for them, and picked up some oil.

Now I'm going to go pull one of the shit oil seals as soon as I figure out how to without fucking up the fork tube


And pic or it didn't happen?

one of em needed to be ratchet strapped down to compress it and put enough pressure on the internals for the cartridge nut to break free without just spinning the cartridge. Chewed the fuck out of the hole in the axle clamp but at least the fuckers off and you won't be able to see the damage
