You can lift up the Bottom edge and with a flashlight look down and see if there is a green or blue dot.
I finally remembered to look at my CCT, no dot's. Added to my to do list immediately.

Thanks again

Haven’t done anything to the bike for the last couple of weeks, but I did order a set of the MFW Vario rider drop pegs, scored a used Corbin one piece seat with backrest from eBay, and picked up a white carbon fiber look tank protector, and got lucky to find a used Harbor Freight hydraulic foot pump lift. Would rather have my original lift I had before, but able to save a lot of money going used on the lift and seat for now.

Currently been tinkering with a buddies new to him atv that is taking up garage space.

Does anyone have a good contact number for MC Enterprises? I’ve sent an email, tried calling their number, but says it’s been disconnected

Thanks
David

Can someone tell me why the pics are sideways? Not how they are on my phone and I also rotated to make them not sideways but still posted that way. Still working on figuring out this forum.

Thanks
David

Does anyone have a first gen factory aluminum rear rack? Remembered to double check mine a little bit ago and discovered it is in fact plastic. Will early 2nd gens fit?

Thanks
David

To my knowledge there is no factory aluminum rear rack for any Gen as standard equipement, they were all plastic. AFAIK, there are different part numbers for Gen1 if you used a Givi rack, thus the Gen2/3 racks will not fit...

Pics from phones generally end up skewed. Pics from computers do not. It's weird but the sky is blue! That's just the way it is.

What I am discovering. Never an issue doing the same photo from my lap top, but same photo from my phone and sideways. It’s a conspiracy, A CONSPIRACY I SAY!!! lol

I don’t know if the givi sr357 or the new Shad tube frame will work but on all of them you’ll have to do your homework and maybe a little fab to make them work, my.02.

On seats, pretty much imho you have the Russel day Long or the Seth Laam (what I have) both are made to you and quite frankly the prices are about the same as an off the shelf aftermarket one-size-fits-all. Many here have found the oe seat ok as well but I’m not one of them. My Laam is the best I’ve ever owned but I believe the RDL is a tad better, maybe, as some here have claimed,I don’t know.

Also being that you’re 6” you probably have a longer inseam, the reason I ask is that I’m 5’ 10” with a 30”inseam and that makes being able to flat foot my 14 at a light a bit tough with the Laam. I lowered my bike 1/2” which made things pretty much perfect for me. Keep all that in mind. Also looking at your photo’s if you’re 6’ that means your daughter must be 6’2” or so because she appears a bit taller than you, my g-daughter is like that and really likes to stand next to me and look down, never says anything but just grins at me,,, kids !
Any idea what years the heavy aluminum rack fits? Does anyone have one that will fit a 2005 for sale??
