Great plan, hope to be legal in a week or two.


So crazy busy at work, but I am managing to sneak away a bit here and there and made some good progress to end this week.


The last two items were to install the horn and the Trail Tech speedo. There seems to be a shortage of 6 volt horns so ended up with an Emgo Triumph/BSA repop from Steadfast Cycles. It's really big... Not what I really wanted but lets see if I can make it work.


Image






Here are all the Endurance II parts out of the box and ready to install

Image






First step was to attach the little magnet to the inner (rotating) hub with JB Weld.

Image






Then I used a 1 1/2" pipe hanger clamp and some 3/4" x 1/8" aluminum bar stock to fab up a mount for the sensor unit. I have never been a very creative or gifted fabricator, but it should be functional if not pretty.

Everything in place and ready for adjustment.


Image






So first I tried mounting the ginormo-horn on the front of the lower triple clamp. It didn't work. Not enough room for the headlamp bucket.

Image



I ended up moving the horn around to the side and mounted it to one of the lower fork clamp bolts. Not the ideal location, but it will be functional.

Image






The wires are kind of "out there", but then again, so is the horn and wires on our Indian. And for that matter, the old RT3.

It took a little dinking around the get the wires run properly and I moved the on/off/on switch back to its original position, but all in all, the Endurance II was a pretty easy install.


Image






I didn't get video of the speedo working while I spun the front wheel, but here's a quick video tour of progress so far.

I am ready for VIN inspection and hope to make that appointment with the Sheriff's dept. next week.

The following quick clip is out of focus. Urgh! I'll get some evidence of the Trail Tech registering when I can.

So I saved the worst for last. The last little bit of legal ugliness went on today. The dreaded universal rear view mirror. Ugh.


Image





Image





So the bike is now 100% complete and ready for it's inspection. I will make that appointment tomorrow.

In the mean time, here are a couple more shots of the Endurance II mounted.

Looks like your ready to go! [ok]

Good luck on the inspection and DMV process.

If I remember there are two forms you will need for the State Patrol- The VIN Inspection and the Roadworthy Checklist- It was about $20.00 for the State Patrol.

I also took my Bill of Sale...

Once you get the signed off paperwork from the State Patrol- Have your insurance on the bike (at least liability- which is all that I carry) and take some patience to the DMV and you will get thru it! [o-o]

The mirror is a Kolpin unit meant for "barely legal" ATV's in places like Moab where they are allowed on the street. I bought it from the local Husky shop. It was either this (just to pass inspection) for $17.95 or a RAM Mount system costing over $50.00 and almost as big. The RAM mirror alone was $28.00 then you have to buy the clamp and the adapter.

Once tagged and legal, I will search for something a little less intrusive. Perhaps something more like this folding Sicass unit from Rocky Mountain ATV:

Image





I just want to get this thing inspected ASAP so I can continue the registration process and didn't want to wait for more on-line orders to arrive. My "2nd day air" horn and Trail Tech orders both took 8 days to arrive.

Of course, I COULD have planned ahead and ordered a nice horn and mirror well in advance of needing them....

I called for a VIN inspection appointment from the local Sheriff's office on Friday and the woman who answered said that they also still do the safety inspection at the local level which is in direct contradiction to what the guy at Recycle Bike Parts told me. The only difference now is that instead of the deputy collecting the fee on-site, I have to go to the Sheriff's office and pre-pay before they make the appointment. I will be doing that first thing this morning (after feeding the horses).

I have my fingers crossed that the local level safety inspection is still viable. SO much easier to have the deputy come to you instead of trailering all the way down to Colorado Springs and dealing with the State Patrol guys.

I'll know shortly!

Sad trombone...

The Patrol Sgt. in charge of inspections called this morning and it might be two weeks before he can get out here. It's a "certified" VIN inspection (meaning a little more thorough for titling a previously un-titled bike) and so he likes to wait until there are three or four so he can "bundle" to be more efficient.
