  1. A quote from the movie Stripes popped in my head - we are willing to learn! LOL! This has been my 1st time using an Odyssey and it has remained in a consistent state even when not on a tender or should I say a specific tender for the Odyssey because I haven't gotten around to ordering one yet...
  2. Thank you Doc for again helping me find my way, I feel I am no longer lost and back on track in the conversation. LOL. My heart was in the right place, maybe not my brain? I have found your information and tips to be absolutely spot on, a great help.
  3. About your experience with whoever you said you had a problem with. good for you, We all shop around. Amazon has it for $109 with free delivery, but I have bought at Autozone too, it's right around the corner from me and sometimes they are the cheapest especially with the coupons and the credit you get back from your old battery
  4. Sorry to hear. I do my research on what fits a particular bike and this group is excellent for information, then I order online and have it delivered or pick it up at Batteries Plus. A quick side by side comparison should tell you.
  5. ahhhhh, yes, I forgot about the welded nuts. Excellent suggestion!
  6. Hey Doc, how much do you gain by that, about 1/4 inch? Can you add spacers to lower even more? After your observation I checked my strap and sure enough it's wearing by the front
  7. Will the seat fit an 01 Sport?
  8. I'm a newbie to this group, but when I was looking I for a V11 I checked out the Scura at a dealership in Vegas that has been for sale for awhile. I was not impressed with the matte black, no offense, just not a matte black fan. Didn't help that this particular bike was ratty looking up close. yours however with the gloss black and red seat is quite the looker! Good luck
  9. Are you saying I should be looking for a complete setup with the steel flywheel and dual plate? Ouch! I'm not sure I'm confident in replacing it myself. What would a shop cost? Someone mentioned a used steel one on ebay, is this something I should buy to keep when I'm ready to install or have installed?
  10. Oh so the quality of the 'materials' weren't different, just the quality of manufacturing? Maybe I miss understood. Now because my memory is not what it used to be did you mention something about them 1st used for racing applications?
  11. Allman Brothers - Mountain Jam (Fillmore East 1971... just the Duane Allman part) - YouTube
  12. Recently purchased #49 of 300 2001 Rosso Mandello from a member here. 24K on the bike. He mentioned that the materials were different in those single plate clutch's. Crossing my fingers because that is one of the items we discussed before purchase and it looks like he researched it. He bought the bike from his neighbor, between the 2 of them they didn't put many miles on her. The original owner took meticulous notes on his maintenance and parts replacement over the 19 years he owned it. Never a mention of the clutch. Only mention of blowing the 30 amp fuse a few times and replacing the regulator and adding an extra ground wire from the regulator to the battery
  13. i have been reading your older thread on this Doc, thank you good stuff. Just a question. Are you saying we would be better off with a standard battery instead of the Odyssey to avoid the 'meltdown'?
  14. Success! Got the correct voltage check at rpm's. Took her for a nice 20 minute ride yesterday afternoon and all looks good so far. Battery reading 12.9 this morning about 12 hours sitting.
  15. Thank you Paul for weighing in! That's a big relief. I also found about 10 30 amp fuses in the tail cubby hole. I guess this is why I was having charging issues. I'll put one in and check the charging readings. I also should charge the Odyssey again using my 10amp charger.
