Tech Day - Saturday July 23rd

Recommended Posts

I will be there, and I might be able to talk my wife into coming with me. I'll have drinks, snacks, and tools. I want to add a front and rear-facing camera setup to my 21' AT AS ES DCT. I have the gear just haven't say down to zip tie the 200' of wires that thing comes with. If my wife attends she'll likely want to add a USB port and phone mount to her new bike (I'll let her introduce herself when she joins).

@shutterrev you'll be missed!

Hey @Angela, this would be a good time to bolt on some crash bars, a USB port, and some storage (extra points if it is a milk crate!).

I have done wiring work on the AT before, this is not a tech day job if you want it to be clean you will need to take off the tank etc to run the wires. That bike is so tightly packed with mass centralization I had a hell of a time installing the aux harness for the USB, Heated grips and aux lights. That was just a 3 wire system too.
Somthing to consider it took me 3 days to fully install the system so it had no interference with anything and was fully protected within the frame of the bike.

OK so I have a head count of around 8-10 people.
I am picking up dogs and soda tonight, if you want to drink beer you will have to bring your own.
I dont drink beer so we never have that in the house (and my bourbon is off limits).

If you are not a meat eater but want to grill something bring it I can throw it on there for you

Right?! I think the engineers were betting each other how deeply they could bury the guts. Good advice - I'll save this project for a time/place where I can strip it down and leave parts laid out.

Had a really good turnout around 9 bikes in total

Only worked on two. We did an oil change on the KTM 990 and there was also a BMW 800 that we did some work on fixing wiring turn signals and I made a custom Saddlemount in order for him to use a tankbag was too busy so I didn’t get any pictures helping others that attended will be able to post some up where Ryder also had his broken topcase sit down so we welded some aluminum reinforcing plates on that and it went home with drank and the last people left around 4 PM so if you got pictures please post them up in the where Ryder also had his broken topcase sit down so we welded some aluminum reinforcing plates on that and it went home with the job overall was a good turn out most of the food got eaten most of the soda got drank and the last people left around 4 PM so if you’ve got pictures please post them up in this thread I really didn’t get many

It was a great way to spend the day, as always. Thank you Dave for hosting another Tech Day. It’s always great to meet the new faces and see if you old ones.

Geez man, use a comma occasionally.

And I'll bring my own relish next time.
