I bought a cheap $5.00 watch at a discount store. pulled the strap off and had some velcro so I added a piece to the Speaker plate and now have a time piece. Keeps good time so far.

This is a little mod that saves me some time and effort. I got the knob from a electronics store.It matches the switch on the left handlebar.Image

I put one of those on my Suzuki Cavalcade. Due to the way the bike was loaded (for a trip, lots of luggage hanging all over), I swung my right foot forward across the seat. I hit the key switch and snapped the key off. With an almost empty tank. I made it into town and a locksmith was able to pick out the broken key. Scary. I now carry a 2nd key in the tank bag on a retractable ID cord. Easy to unlock the fuel door. Key retracts back into the tank bag when done.

Nice paint job.

The '94 I just purchased has this thingie at the attachment point of the clutch lever. (picture below). Is it simply a place to hang your helmet or does it have another purpose? Anybody know? Thanks

Yes, it is a helmet post. I think it came with a small padlock that fit into the groove below the ball. Probably more trouble than it's worth.
