8,236 Miles

Installed a SpeedoHealer.

The Speedometer and the Odometer were off by 4.1%; reading faster and more miles than actual.

All is well now!

At 18,600 Miles:
  • Brake System recall ( Performed by Dealer )
  • I replaced the Front Brake Pads ( ~20% Remaining )
  • I Drained, Flushed and Refilled the Cooling System. ( Routine Maintenance)

========== / / / / / ==========

At 20,850 Miles:
  • Added Wind Deflectors/Fairing Mount ( Light Tint ) ( National Cycle: P/N N5114 )

========== / / / / / ==========

Notes:
  • The GPS Auto Enter Module ( Bike MP3: P/N HGW-INT-AEM ) is No Longer Available. Apparently too many issues, according the Bike MP3, although mine has performed quite well, and still is.
  • Do NOT buy Chrome from Kuryakyn! Both the Drivers Mini-Boards ( Kuryakyn: P/N 4328 ) and the Highway Pegs with Short Arms ( Kuryakyn Ergo II: P/N 4073 ) Corrode faster than I can keep them polished and waxed. I used Never-Dull Wadding until that couldn't keep up with the corrosion and more recently I switched to Semi-Chrome polish. In addition; the underlying layer of Copper plating that is below the Chrome and Nickel plating is starting to show on the Ergo II Brackets and the Short Arms.
  • Lastly, the rear half of the Front Fender cracked at the mounting bolt holes. I did not replace or reuse the Front Fender Extension ( Pyramid Plastics/Fenda Extenda: P/N 051231 ). This is not an issue with this product. Just that the Honda Fender doesn't seem to be able to handle whatever load this Fender Extension places on the Fender Mounts.

Now at 26,300 Miles:

  • Removed the Highway Pegs with Short Arms (Kuryakyn Ergo II P/N 4073). I had a light touch down mid turn. No damage to the bike, just ground a bit off the Peg and the Arm. But it WILL get ones attention! FWIW after the Foot Pegs touch down, the next thing will be these if you keep pushing it. So it's not like I didn't know I was pushing it. (See Attached) Note: The angle of the Arms is/was slightly above horizontal and the Highway Pegs were folded up at the time.

  • Added a Taiddan Garage Door Opener. Flash High Beams to activate the Garage Door Opener. Very effective and an impressive range. From when I turn onto the block I live on I can hit the High Beam Switch and the garage Door is just finishing opening as I pull into the driveway. Range seems to be about three times what it is with a Remote Clicker.

  • Average Fuel economy from purchase new, to date (26,353 miles total), is 37.97 MPG.
