  • Star brand passing lamps

    I spent 3 hours on these passing lamps and who ever designed the turn signal adapters should be kicked in the pants, i needed to drill my own hole into the wire slot and file all the edges where the wires enter, at least they did away with the drilled out allen bolt and started using a 12mm, i got a lot done in the few days it's been inside. Got the swingarm off and the shock out, and the belt was so tight it was like a guitar string tight and it ruined the right side wheel bearing. I hope the drive pulley shaft bearing is ok, the seal looks perfect as does the spline so its probably good, man that belt was tight like the v-belts from the old days, a lot things came apart hard, the passenger boards were super tight as was the muffler stay, had to grind the head off one bolt on the passenger board, im glad i caught that bad bearing. Its Things like that can get you hurt, ill start working the front in a few days, for now I'm just making a part list as i go

      I traded in my 650 classic and bought this one i only got to ride it 25 miles home from dealership is was 35 degrees that day and there were some noises on that ride but because this model is new to me i don't know what's normal and what isn't, so im pulling it apart to inspect everything
