Thanks.  Being old skool, or just old, I came from a tube based POV.  Could lose several PSI over night. 

I like the readout, as a reminder to check tire pressure occasionally, but tubeless just aren't as sensitive to pressure loss.

 Only my Dyna still has tubes, and check them before each ride.  A pain in the a$$ to do so, but necessary.  Thanks again for the info.  tomp

I love the functionality too but have totally had it with that flashing screen every stinking morning. Next time my tires of off, those things are gone! I really don't miss TPMS on my other bike.

Both sides were were broken. I used a part of a pvc conduit to reinforce the the top holes and a smallpiece of sheet metal to rreinforce the edge.

Today I changed the engine oil and filter, changed the final drive oil, checked the tires and pressure, then went for a 25 mile ride. Refilled the tank with pure gasoline.
Connie ran perfect, and pulled like a freight train. Sure was nice to be back in the saddle after 2 long months of fridgid weather!

Planning on putting on some miles this weekend since temps are going to be in the 60's!

Will also be wrapping up an Audiovox 100 cruise control system for a friend and his 1999 Honda Valkrye. Hopefully we'll get to try it out!

Even with the Rostra I still have my throttlemeister, Many times I just want to lock the throttle for a quick second or 2 without setting the cruise. The throttlemeister is also much heavier that the stock bar ends & seem to smoothen vibrations better.

I don't have a Rostra but I kept my Throttlemeister from the C10 cause of the weight and it's nice and shiny.

Hmmm, guess I need to reconsider removing the throttle lock then.  Do you really think the extra few grams makes a difference?
