well, just like i knew would happen, i screwed up.
woke up today on my day off and said to myself "hey i can do this!" got all my tools and went to work, when i took the rear cowl off, there were so many freakin wires all over the place, it was a disaster zone. The previous owner did a freakin mess. And to complicate things he also had installed a power commander AND a scorpio alarm, so there soooo many wires all over the place, different batched zipped tied together and i could not identify CRAP. The only wire i could find was the left turn signal wire, thats it. So i got pissed and just took the damn OEM fender off and stayed with the competition werkes fender eliminator. And just when i put everything together, i noticed when i was done there was a nice gap between the tail light and the muffler, before there was no gap, it was pretty flush to the muffler, so i went ahead and took the rear cowl off again and preceeded to try and work it back in back to how it was but for some reason its not lining up. So now im really pissed.
Oh and also my license plate light stopped working a few weeks ago, though it was the LED that came with the kit, bought a replacedment one from competition werkes and still nothing. So i took the opportunity that i was already taking stuff apaer and checked all the fuses in the fuse box on the left fairing and they are all good. I followed the wires from the license plate light to the stock wiring, and it was all good, i even cut them again and cut of some fresh wiring, and still nothing.
So i threw in the towel and called my local bike mechanic and im taking it in this saturday so he can install the OEM fender back, find the problem with why my license plate light stopped working, and hopefully get rid of most of the excess wiring thats bulking up my damn bike. I asked him for a price and he says he has to see it first. Hes usually good with prices, im loyal to him so he cuts me a break every now and then
Oh and my battery is dead. Guess its time for a new one, its been acting up lately since it started getting cold, and i rode my bike just 3 days ago and today i tried to start the bike and the battery already, it has gone dead, i guess its time for a new one.
What a great day
