    Re: What XXGUY's been doing the last few evenings.

    Question... the right blinkers blink. I now have the left rebel blinkers lighting up but they are on constantly and do not blink/flash. I ordered a new flasher relay. Think I am going in the right direction folks or should I be looking in another direction?

    Re: What XXGUY's been doing the last few evenings.

    Most blinker relays use the same output for both sides. If yours is only 2 or 3 wires this is the case. You may have a bad connection on the bad side- check the bulb is seated correctly, also good ground. I assume standard bulbs are fitted in all and not leds? If led- you need an electronic flasher unit, the standard type switch on the heating caused by current flow.
    The answer is 42

    No LEDs, bulb on old one wasn't lighting all the time. Had some corrosion in the socket. Reason why I got the new cheap one's. New unit lights just fine. I will start looking at ground points.

    Re: What XXGUY's been doing the last few evenings.

    Figured out the Rebel blinker problem. Put the cheap one on and same results . Then new blinker relay. It blinked slowly coupled times. Took the switch apart and cleaned it out. The 34 yr old grease was really stiff. Put new grease back in and switch works much more smoothly. Still no blinky. Took the new cheap blinker off and resoldered the OEM bullet connectors back on the OEM blinker, plugged it in and and tested it. Perfect blinker function. Might have been the switch all along. Anyway it works!

    Next I put the XX on the lift as the battery died.
    Well, finally got around to replacing the battery. Here are pics of my new LiFePO battery. I like these Scorpions and have had no bad experiences with them. The one in my ST1300 sat all winter and fired the bike right up as if I had ridden it yesterday instead of 4 months ago. Had to vacuum out the battery compartment as a mouse had stored a bunch of mouse/rat poison pellets I had put around the corners of the garage in the fall. Put the spacers on the bottom of the new battery and slid it in and the fit was very, very good. Plan on changing the tire tonight. Then will start doing diagnostics on the charging system as the voltages were suspect. A 10 yr old battery was the first thing to change. This is my 3rd scorpion lithium ion battery plus 1 shorai for the Rebel. Really like them and for around $140 from battery-stuff.com don't see why I should buy a good quality lead acid battery for the same price or a little less. I took some ear plugs and cut off the ends then put them inside the battery terminals then depressed the foam and placed the battery nut on top. This holds the nut in place and makes it easy to attach the bolt with a few extra leads connected for heated clothing or other things.

    Took the rear tire off and at 10,000 miles the ognibene sprocket looks great! Got my NoMar tire changer set up and had the old tire off in no time. Had a TPMS transponder on the rubber core and wondered if that was a smart thing. I had a T-Valve ready to go. Just waited until the tire change. Well, don't wait. Look at that core... it was starting to split! Put the new T-Valve in and got on with the changing. Had to watch a video as it's been a year since I have done it. Getting better every time though. Couldn't get it on and I had to step back and think. Ahhhhhh, using the extra hands wrong. Soon as I got them right the last foot of circumference went on easy. Tire popped and seated on the rim easy too. Will clean the rim and balance it tomorrow then reinstall. Putting on a T31 EVO. Still have some life left in the PR4 GT up front.

    Love my NoMar professional. Took few times to get the hang of it but it's a hell of a machine.
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    That professional is a heavy duty machine. This year I most likely will change this tire, maybe the front at the end of the season. The ST1300 front as soon as the XX is off the lift. Did front and rear on the Rebel during last winter. So 4 tires in a yr. Couldn't justify buying the professional! This one is good and I don't have to go an hr to the dealer. Have my wife drive me home and then do the opposite the next day. I have changed some of my friends tires but that's rare. Not a lot of riding buddies around here.

    Re: What XXGUY's been doing the last few evenings.

    I got the professional just for the ability to change others as well. Have mounted up a few and sprung for the big wheel kit as well in case I get a HD in here setup with one. At 3500 to 4000 for the least expensive I didn't want to take a chance at doing ANY damage to them.

    Re: What XXGUY's been doing the last few evenings.

    Yesterday I was balancing the rim and tire. Just couldn't get it done. Tried for 20 minutes. Had 6 steel weights on it. Stripped them all off and started all over. Done in less than 5 minutes. What the heck???
    Put it on and adjusted the chain then cleaned it and lubed it.
    Put a DVM on the battery leads and fired the bike up. Could see the battery charging from 13.3 going up to 13.7 volts. Revved up to 2000 rpm and volts started peaking over 14.3 volts. I think it was my 10 year old battery.
    Went for a ride down to Oregon, Illinois for some good pizza or pasta at Alfano's. #3 rode a 700 cc bike for the first time. Was fearful at first but loved it compared to the 250 Rebel.

    10,000 miles on the Ognibene sprocket. Looks good.
