Cyclops H7 LED Kit install for BMW F800/ 650 GS
Guest BLOGGER installation…thanks Mike for the descriptive install…and shhhh…I was the friend who had an extra LED 😏
I was fortunate to have a good friend that had an extra H7 LED kit from Cyclops and thought I would give back by showing a picture install. I did the original install with removing the headlight but thought I would document the installation without the headlight removal as it was equally as fast if not faster.
November 19th 2014 – My Seattle Day Trippin’ to AltRider!
All pics clickable and videos throughout this post…short clips
Mileage 678 KM’s – left at 0600 and arrive home at 1930. Weather? Perfect, cloudy, some sun, cool temperatures and NO RAIN!
I left in the dark and came home in the dark. LOVE my new Aux lights and the LED low beam. Truly helped me when I decided to ride a road in Washington called the Chuckanut Drive. More about that later.
I think these type of shops are awesome and hope to use them if needed one day. Just thought their video about how they got started and their philosophy was worthy of a BLOG post! Do you have one of these where you live?
Motomethod is a full repair shop, for nearly all makes and models of motorcycles, old or new. Whether you need a tune up, a new tire, an engine rebuild or if it’s your own project bike…we can help.
Motomethod is one of the first in the industry to allow you, the rider, to come in and ‘rent a bay’ and repair your own bike, or learn how. We provide the space, tools and resources…so come on down and do it yourself !
Day one of our deck building project was yesterday….only taken us 9 years to get motivated to actually finish the backyard. We will be building 3 decks in the end….well, Cheryl will. I am the laborer, mule and runner. Cheryl has a way to do things and I find if you get out of her way and help when she asks, all is good. We have a lot to do in a short period of time…but we hope to get her done.
To give you an idea of what we are capable of doing together, we landscaped our entire backyard in 2004 and built this garden literally by hand and wheel barrel. We could not get a Bob Cat in the back after the houses were built. There are hundreds of senior Allan Blocks in the 1300 sq Ft garden, hundreds of Junior blocks, 7 retaining walls, irrigation system and we planted all the plants as well.
Wicked alternative to buying new rims for our bikes to make them capable of having tubeless tires. A Facebook reader of ours Tom, posted this idea. Tom had this done to his brand new Triumph Tiger 800 down in his home country of the Phillipeans. I asked Tom to keep me updated how this holds up. So, far 150 KM’s no problems. I am curious if this will hold and if his tires will leak…we shall see….in the mean time…have a look and tell us what you think? YEAH or NAY??? I have included pics from Tom’s install.
Just like what we had on our BMW 650’s Cheryl installed her permanent temperature controller today. Instead of installing the built-in port she decided to go with the plug just hanging outside the faring as you will see in the pictures.
Most motorcycles use cables to connect the twist grip to the carb(s) or throttle bodies; many also use cables for the clutch, cold-start control, and even brakes. Servicing these critical components is fairly simple and prevents problems later. Maintenance intervals vary, and bikes ridden in dust, sand, or mud need extra maintenance. It’s good to at least perform a thorough control service annually; check the owner’s manual for recommendations. Continue reading “Maintaining Clutch, Brake, Throttle Controls, and Cables”
