Since I tried to clean a ditch out with my 2000 LT and the insurance totaled it. The 2003 I have now cd changer needs a upgrade to a MP3 player. Radio music sucks :mad:

Wow, you are surely treating the bike better than yourself! Good for you. Happy wrenching season!

Aw. c'mon: you do not like all the wonderful commercials available to you on your radio, for free? ;)

Here's a hint: satellite radio. I use a Sirius receiver that couples into the bike's radio through what they call "FM relay", an antenna coupler. When on, the sat radio plays through a fixed frequency on the bike's radio, when off - you get the off-the air stuff. I do not use the "through the air" coupling between satellite receiver and bike radio because it is subject to interference from outside sources.
Other possibility is using an auxiliary input to your CD radio to hook up your MP3 player. I added that on my 2001 bike, using the BMW Aux Input kit - you will need to search here if it applies to your year as well.

Couldn't pass up the 20% off group buy on a new Russell Day Long saddle with a backrest. Now I just have to find a box to send in my old one.

Her needs are pretty simple: a 12k service and a new front tire.

What she doesn't know is that I have some other goodies in mind for her. When she goes in for the 12k service she will see a Stebel air horn and upgraded fuel line quick disconnects in her stocking, hung by the mantle with care! :cool:

The LT is getting new shoes front and rear, the electrical farkels will be re-routed through a new FZ-1 fuse block.

The GS got hers early as I finished the Centec fuse block install today. What a pain to find a switched power lead on a CAN Bus bike. Then I will install the smartire system I got on e-bay a few months ago.

Hey John, I actually found this after I helped connect up my riding buddies GS for a switched source as well.. I patched into the "running light" at the bottom of the headlight assembly .. But this thing is a pigtail that gives you a neat connection in the same place !!

I'm finally getting a pair of Gerbing G3 gloves. I almost bought a pair last year and now I'm glad that I waited for the Microwire. They are currently on backorder until 12/28 and I can't wait.
