New from Nebraska
« on: October 19, 2020, 12:35:04 pm »
Joing a bit ago when i got my bolt. been riding for about two months. Wrecked the other day when i hit some gravel at night(def gonna upgrade the headlight). Got surgery to replace my ACL soon because of it. Figured i might as well start pricing things out and getting input from others on things to look at after a wreck. Also thinking about taking it to the shop and having yamaha look at it to give me a list of things and go from there. Ill post pics here when i get off work and am home.

LED Head Light BULB - H4
i bought the red-glowing Ring version to match my RED-BLACK BOLT , also comes in BLUE glowing Ring
MUCH Brighter, although, just like the standard light bulb - when i flip to HIGH BEAM, light shoots to high, i do not use hi-beam
 ---- thankfully you pulled thru that wreck , ugh on BOLT needing repair - and MORE Ugh on you needing surgery - repair

i like my KOSO speedometer - tachometer - shows which gear you are in - $365 new from factory, search ebay i got mine new $288

pray you have speedy recovery - E

Surgery is tomorrow so hoping for a speedy recovery. this whole no eating crap sucks though. Price out all the things i think ill need being shock, shifter, and handle bar risers. All those are about 350.

Hey Vallen, hope surgery went well. I've gone down on loose gravel as well - no fun but very impressed with any rider who's willing to recover and get back on. Speedy recovery to you and good luck getting the bike rolling again. \m/

Redbeard89 thanks for the link to those sliders. Finally got everything all fixed up and went on a nice day long ride to shake everything out yesterday.
