Mounted off my frame sliders, yes, i can adjust them in any direction.
They are stedi lights. I havent ridden at night yet, but they seem to fill in the gaps from the shit stock light well enough.

I've wired them the the aux 2amp plug under the L fake air scoop, and run it through a toggle switch on the bars.

I don't know if you've ever seen this guy but I started watching his videos and I kind of like him, mostly for the physics stuff I enjoyed this one on chain lube and cleaning.

Thanks for the share, I do see this guy pop up from time to time on my YouTube feed and I have watched several of his videos but I had not seen that one yet.

Wait till daylight savings time hits you and you'll decide whether or not you want to make the hour adjustment I didn't 2 years running. Or wait maybe that's when you set the clock lol

Or move to Arizona, where you never have to reset your clocks! 😁

What is absent in this review and important for our bikes is that we have an o-ring chain, so we do not want it to penetrate into the rollers. The MOM specifically warns against using engine oil.

Personally I prefer cleaning with kerosine, and lubing with DuPont chain wax, it keeps rust away and doesn't fling too much.

I bought many cans of the Dupont Teflon stuff... And I actually found by the ocean it does not keep the salty air off of the chain that much compared to say motul... Which I have been using after I got the bike up and running again. After switching to motul I no longer have rust on the outside link plates... Although it does pick up more dust etc

The dust was why I switched from Motul, funny enough. Still no rust on any of my chains, I am a few miles inland.

Thought to install the quiet insert into my MP4, but the instructions mention something called "Loctite 246" so ordered online.

You guys are funny... I can't even ride the bike until that's correct. :)
