  1. I had a head gasket go on my front cylinder on my 2010 XC at about 40,000 miles. I could see puffs of smoke coming out of the cylinder head when cranking over. Replaced the gasket myself and no problems since. I suspect if it occured again you may have a porous head or the mating surface of the gasket is compromised. Here is a video of it before the repair. https://vimeo.com/118269711
  2. I might suggest calling vtwin audio. They make a wire harness and may be able to direct you to a solution. http://www.vtwinaudio.com/store/products/vtvrso-2/
  3. Here is a video that will give you an idea. Pretty easy. BYLZaQH1O8M The toughest part is wrestling the cable ends into the slots on the grip. DO NOT use a pair of pliers to grab the cable unless you want to run the risk of damaging the cable. My fingers are too big to grab the cable. Tip: After putting the barrel end of cable into the round slot on the grip, I use a hook tool to grab the cable and pull it over the guide slot in the grip.
  4. I am very proud of my fellow VMC brothers and sisters. WELL DONE! :y: :y:
  5. This dealer doesn't have a clue. There is an old adage in the car business that holds true here. "Sales sells the first one, Service sells the second." Any dealer that doesn't conduct their business with that in mind is a fool and does not deserve anything from my wallet.
  6. Here is the link to the picture slideshow video available on Youtube. Enjoy!!! GLxihCQqhlg
  7. The rest of you don't have to bother cuz I bought the winning raffle ticket already. :tu
  8. I am looking forward to it. Good on ya mate!
  9. I hate my HF jack mostly because it drops the bike like a rock when you hit the release pedal. Somebody posted a simple mod to create a stop to slow down the release. It's on to-do list. rXJ38wWzQ9U
  10. I roll my own, but I second Cruz tools if you don't want to source your own. I also like taking a Redi-can to take the pucker factor out of those oh-crap fuel situations.
  11. After buying two of those t-shirts, I hear ya brother! Do what you need to do to take care of you and those girls and god and kharma can sort out the rest. I know people who know me will think I am crazy for saying this but the chrome can wait. We'll be here when you get back. :y:
  12. I was helping a buddy put his motor back together on his 2011 Cross Country yesterday and there is a triangle shaped connector at the the rear of the motor near the oil breather hose where it goes into the case. I looked on my 2010 Cross Country and I did not see the same connector. (Sorry I did not take any pics.) Any ideas? :dno
  13. Those are definately bad-ass! Nice job Will!
  14. I am so glad to hear that things are working out for you Will. I wish you and your family all of the best.
