  1. In the past I have had questions about the HID drowning out my High beam light intensity. Now someone has been PMing me about HID questions and it made me get my manual out and check the headlight info. I may have found another problem. When checking the bulb numbers, my manual says H8 bulb for high beam and H11 for low beam. I changed out my high beam bulb a week ago for a brighter bulb, the H11 that I replaced was in the high beam location. Can anyone else verify this, or is it a mix up in the manual? Is the H8 supposed to be brighter than the H11? My manual for the 07 JP says H8, high beam, is 55w and the H11, low beam, is 35w. The lock for the bulb is different for the high beam to the low beam isn't it? Maybe the previous owner got them mixed up if they are the same? There is a HID in the low beam location now.
  2. Are the Lloyds ones the same as the older ones? I have heard they are good.
  3. I have been riding my girlfriend around and taking it easy lately Too easy just way to easy. LOL :tu
  4. I rode my 99C for a couple weeks with it bypassed, had no issues.
  5. The way it is done depends on if the studs are farther apart or closer together. That is the hardest part. But nothing a die grinder and a burr bit wouldn't fix, depending on the difference in distance. New mounts wouldn't be to hard. And Rylan has mounted Freedom engine pipes on Hammer engines, but that took some cutting of the pipes and rewelding them back together. But still not impossible.
  6. I just put a Corbin seat on my JP, drivers and pass. Never had to use the Air Hawk pad all the way home from the factory in Hollister, approx. 2500 miles one way. Had to use it all the wary down. Drivers seat by itself is around 350 with matching welt done. All told, drivers seat, pass seat and pass backrest was 924 tax in. Well worth it to me. Stock seat was a killer.
  7. What year Vegas? If it has the LED tailight, something may be wrong with the current control. But check your switches as well, if the brake light is on all the time, a switch may be bad.
  8. My understanding is the tooth spacing from HD to Vic is just a bit different. Some have used them with no probs, some have had probs. Rylan does a lot of work on these, he may have an old laying around that would work if he has done any change overs. Give the Vic Shop a call and check with him.
  9. You may not be able to see the issue without the tire turning. Jack it up on a lift and spin the tire by hand, faster the better. Use a block of wood, 2x4 should work, and lay it sideways to the tire and see if it runs out of round or has a similar issue. It sounds like you have an issue only in the center of the tire, not on the sides.
  10. I have changed my 07 JP to LED on the rear only so far. They do flash faster, but, cross my fingers, haven't hurt the ACM yet. You don't have to change them as a set, not sure about when you should install the resistor, I am sure someone else will chip in on that point.
  11. The starters from Mercury Marine motors also work. Do a search, info should come up.
  12. So its squeaks only going over bumps? Not when accel or deccel? And I take it a shop did the lowering for you, correct?
  13. Did you grease the pivot points when you had it apart?
  14. I will have to check it, but I am sure my JP is m8 for that bolt. And yes, any bolt shop should have the one you need in stainless. Also agree ebay may be the best place for the washer, but you may end up buying the seat as well to get it. Facebook has a Vic buy and sell section, I believe a guy had a seat there for 25 bucks.
  15. If you watch witchdoctors video on how to pull the fuel pump, he shows how to remove and install the pump and pickup lines/filters. the last guy who had the same issue you do had cracked fuel lines and wrong position of the filter due to the previous owner messing with it and getting it wrong.
  16. I am only 5 8 but with a 33 inch inseam, same as you. 07 Jackpot stock. Bought a set of 2 inch forward extensions from talliman, and they are very comfy. I believe he got out of selling them, but Jon at Witchdoctors has them as well, and likely a couple other vendors here. Extensions were cheep, and it comes with new rod for the shifter. They made a huge difference for me, but I don't normally have hip problems unless I have ridden for a long time and even then only on occasion if I turn the wrong way in the saddle.
  17. I need to replace the isolators on my 07 JP. I thought I read a thread here that the newer isolators had a harder rubber compound so they don't break out so easy, but I did a search and cant find it. I did find a thread saying the newer isolators had a cupped washer on the ends so they do don't move as much. Vic seems to have changed them in 08, by what I could find in the online parts catalogue. Question is, does the newer 3 piece isolator still fit in the top tree in place of the older 1 piece isolator? Looks like the old 1 piece presses in place while the new 3 piece has a steel spacer in the middle and an upper and lower rubber bushing that pushes in place, maybe by press.
  18. Last fall I asked this question but didn't really get an answer so I am asking it again. Issue is the headlight bulb location when in high or low beam. My bike has the HID in the upper position in the headlight and it is low beam. Nice and bright, which is good. Problem is, when I go to high beam, which is in the lower spot in the headlight, it is not a HID, shines on the ground lower than the low beam and is a dull yellow colour, not so good when you need to see well on high beam. The low beam actually drowns out the high beam, making it pointless to use at all. What does everyone else have? Is it the same as mine, did the beams get crossed on install or is there and adjustment to make the high beam shine on a higher location so it is actually useable? I believe I read that the two locations actually use two different types of bulbs, if they were regular halogens, so getting the two in the wrong locations in the headlight shouldn't be possible, but am I correct in that? Should the HID be in the lower spot? But if so, why would it shine on a lower spot on the ground when high beam on versus low beam? Right now, riding at night is basically out of the question till I get this figured out. The wiring diagrams in the service manual, and the manual itself, don't seem to specify which location is which, so not much help there.
  19. As to the OP's post, do you always stop then try to put it in neutral, or are you rolling to a stop when putting it in neutral? It does make a difference, using a rolling shift is a lot easier. If you don't normally, try it out.
  20. If you watch witch doctors video, there is a filter sock on both sides of the tank. The previous owner may not have got one of them back in place properly. I understand they are difficult to get back in place.
  21. The benefit is great. Having the total rotation decreased by a 1/4 of a turn makes it nice for acceleration, seems easier to hold a steady throttle and is a much more enjoyable ride. No sore wrist either.
