The upper mount looks like a set of highway pegs or a bicycle handlebar :o

650 Twin - Interceptor/GT / Re: First service - dealer cost?

Let’s get back on topic... price paid at dealer for first maintenance. (300 Miles/500km)

After four hours of doing nothing my dealer confessed that they didn't even have an oil filter in stock. This was two weeks after I bought the bike from them. So I ordered a filter online and did the service myself. Cost was oil and filter.

Buy new ones rather than relying on used stuff, Hitchcocks' have the connectors for the Electra-X TCI module.

Bullet Iron Barrel / Re: Why does my bike keep breaking?
« Last Post by ace.cafe on Today at 05:59:22 pm »
It's hard for me to see the detail in the photos, but it appears that it could be a broken lash cap. If it is that, it can be easily replaced by just removing the rocker, pulling the lash cap off, and putting on a new one.

In any case, even if I am wrong, you will be removing the rockers anyway.
Now is the time to warn you that the threads in the aluminum head strip out extremely easily, and are not easily repaired. The little nuts on the rocker blocks only get 5 ft-lbs torque when tightening. No more than that. A lot of people have stripped out those stud holes when tightening, so be careful.
I don't care what the workshop manual or Pete Snidal say. 5 ft-lbs is the max safe torque on those rocker block nuts.

    I do not have her posted on Craigslist at the moment, as I would rather sell to a member of this forum or other RE group. My fear is that if I sell to some random "Chucklehead", she will end up being left outside or in some other way neglected and I do care a great deal for Fieldy. She has been a great companion to me and to be honest, a good therapy tool.

If you want to "keep it in the clubhouse," as it were, then you might do well to summarize here all those goodies you've added to the ride. Some folks here may have a vague notion that you've been using "Fieldy" as a testbed for all those needful gimcracks you've been reviewing these past many months on YouTube...stuff like the Carberry Anti-Vibe plate, improved ECU gear, lighting, etc., etc., etc. However, I doubt most might know of the full extent of those improvements. So, maybe you should really spell them all out, perhaps with some notion of the added cost of those upgrades. A bunch of pix couldn't hurt either.

For a Bullet with that new engine you got under warranty and all of those worthwhile farkles you've added, I'd say it's priced to sell. February's just the wrong month to be doing so. Once those daffodils bloom is when you should start getting some serious nibbles. You got it up on Craigslist?
