  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. Allman Brothers - Mountain Jam (Fillmore East 1971... just the Duane Allman part) - YouTube
  4. 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 regulat
  5. 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'?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I hope it was an oversight. It would have been nice to know from the PO that sold me the bike
  9. Doc, do you mean like a missing 30amp fuse? WTH! why would anyone pull that fuse? Paul (KINDOY2)? Thank you Peter
  10. Yupper. A bad battery wouldn't interfere with the reading correct
  11. Went out for a sunset ride with my buddy tonight. 15 minutes into it the V11 starting to stumble and as I pulled over died. No warning lights. Would not even click when hitting the starter button. After a few minutes it started to click when trying to start like the battery was trying to regenerate. Trailered her home and got 10.8 volts from the battery. Have the Odyssey battery charging and now she slowly turns over. So you know I was having problems with my Odyssey battery. Today it read 12.8 before heading out. The date on the battery is June 2020. Should be good. I'm suspecting a charging
  12. Let's hope not! I just ordered the L brackets, but got the ones that look a little beefier https://www.ebay.com/itm/Odyssey-Battery-Copper-L-Adapter-Terminal-Brackets-Kit-Yamaha-Rhino-BMW/401458934022?hash=item5d78d13106:g:tjQAAOSw9a9gXRy6&vxp=mtr
  13. thank you, and the lowest from amazon was $18. Your listings are the lowest, thanks!
  14. I like the terminal adapters, where can I get some, Odyssey?
  15. LOL, yes you are right Paul. Must have been bolted on that way for easier shipping. Anybody got a good picture or instructions of how it's attached to the inside rider peg brackets?
  16. i have a very old digital it measured 12.46 on the odyssey, but it also measured 12.40 on a new lead battery on my Buell S2. Now i need to buy a new meter to see if my old one is not calibrated right.
  17. Thank you Paul, received quickly! I can't figure how to mount it though, lol. Looks like I'm missing something on my frame. Pics in the FAQ "How to" section. [edit:docc added link]
  18. Received a luggage rack today. Looks like I'm missing something from the frame that it mounts to. Can someone advise?
  19. It's 8 o'clock, do you know what your battery reads? holding at 12.6
  20. Holding at 12.6 after a 20 minute spirited ride. Took my old Buell S2 right after for a 20 minute spirited ride, sitting at 12.6 as well. Time will tell. I'll check again tpmorrow morning. Thanks for all the information Doc.
  21. As I'm reconnecting my battery at 1st I was annoyed that I had to get 4 positive connectors back on the the positive terminal, then I realized there are 5 on the ground terminal. Ok, one is the main ground and one is the pigtail battery tender, what are the other 3 and is that a normal count?
  22. Charger disconnected a few hours ago. I checked twice so far and it's holding at 13.4. I'll take another look at 4pm ET. Wow, I never thought I'd be baby sitting a battery like this! I guess it's my curiosity that keeps me from going to get a normal AGM Yuasa battery or something similar at my local Batteryplus joint!
