General Information

Lucifer Orange
Stock bike with Tri Gel seat, no other mods at purchase.
Bought off EBay in May '16 from northern Utah. 33+K on the clock. Flew to SLC, took a shuttle to Logan and the owner picked me up. Loaded the bike with gear etc. that I had shipped to him. Rode the mountains South to my home in AZ. Rectifier failed, fried the Stator and battery. Limped home with a new battery, charging it at night and keeping revs above 3K once the bat was down. Since then I have replaced the stator with Rick's item, used RR from a newer Tri Street triple and the new bat I bought in southern UT. Wired direct to bat, bypassing the wire harness. Installed digital voltmeter at the same time.
Just finished a 3,650 mile, 3 week trip (Aug '16). Olga ran flawlessly.
Went through the bike from front to back prior to departing from AZ.
