I know, I think it was close to three months, but WELL WORTH the wait if you ask me. Fit and finish are OUTSTANDING!

Looking forward to seeing updates as you do them.


Thanks Petrol Spice

It's the clear Motodynamic sequential LED for the 2009-2013: Motodynamic Tail Light

FYI, the sequential part didn't work correctly until I installed the Watsens because of the integrated resistor, it would just flick off and on very quickly... The sequential signal function will work correctly with the stock front turn signals, or if you add a resistor to a set of other aftermarket flushmounts.


Thanks Petrol Spice

Thanks brotha, I appreciate it! No, nothing new lately, but I'm sure come Spring time, I'll start throwing a bunch more money at it.


Thanks Petrol Spice

UPDATE: ECU Flashed with chatham's Map

HOLY SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS!

I just got my flashed ECU with chatham's map installed this morning and went for a ride in the lovely 40F weather. I cannot describe how TOTALLY different this thing is now. I'm gonna have to learn how to ride it all over again.

1st gear: forget about it. The front end won't stay down
2nd gear: 65-70, crack the throttle and the front comes right up
3rd gear: 80-85 crack the throttle with a little tug, and the front comes up

You guys were 100% on point, the bike is a TOTALLY different beast now. Like having another bike altogether. I abso-fvcking-lutley LOVE this thing now!


Thanks Petrol Spice

UPDATE: TL Dash Install

Well, I got another goodie in the mail I've wanted to pick up for sometime now and got to installing it.







I initially had some issues with bad connections as the connectors I picked up are known for not fully penetrating the housing on the wire. I was fortunate enough to have a lot of help troubleshooting my issues from Gearheaded, Redgecko, iGoldeneye, and CARBONAR1 during the install, thanks again guys!

My initial want was to incorporate connections of some sort so I could unplug the dash when and where needed. After dealing with the issues, I opted to hardwire it in by soldering the connections to prevent any future issues with faulty connections. I soldered all the main harness connections, and followed that up with some electrical tape to isolate the connections, and then taped the main harness and TL harness together to give it a factory look. I still have the OEM connector available to troubleshoot any future issues that may arise, use it for programming the TL dash, etc...













Its alive!








I also soldered the connections under the tank as they had me stressing last night thinking I killed the dash. I was messing with them, and the dash went dead.... Got scared, but had a lot of help from the guys mentioned above again walking me through what to check and address.



Ran the wiring along the power wire for my HIDs, and made sure to get it all tucked up in there real nice.



Programming button:


Outdoor shots; don't really like the way they came out, but they'll do for now.


















I've got some other goodies on order/on the way right now, and will get them installed and updates added once they arrive.

Thanks again for taking the time to check out my build.


Thanks Petrol Spice
