    Hes talking about the fact that for example you could connect two SAE connectors together as there is really no male or female plug.

    Correct, one would need an adapter for both male and female noco x connectors to SAE.... BUUUUT for @gixxerphil 's case where he has NO sae stuff and one bike, its a mute point.

    haha no worries.

    For me, all my bikes, clamps etc run SAE, so i just used the noco lead left the x connect in place, and rather than clamps from the stock noco lead, chopped off the ring terminals and put an SAE connector on the noco and move it around as i please. No need for multiple adapters etc. BUUUT like stated you do have to pay attention to the polarity of the stuff you connect the SAE connectors to.

    Wifey says eweee. Is that dog poop on the floor?

    No dear, it’s dried mud that came off the bottom of my boot. I don’t think I’d put shit in my hand.

    From nocos website on the genius 1. See how the fused lead with the x connect plug unscrews from the clamp. Simply unscrew the clamps, screw onto battery terminals, route properly to a good spot on the bike, plug in when parked. The Genius 1 remembers the battery setting it was last set to so no need to rotate through on the maintainer itself every time to plug in say if you had a lithium battery.

    Its such a good product I got the GF's mom one for a generator she bought (that has a lithium battery for starting), Installed once and have never had to deal with. Keep the battery topped off without issue and always remembers its last used setting so no worries of the charger not being in lithium mode.

    Just installed the hand guards today that came with the bike. That was a pain with stock bars but got it done. Had to modify the bar pad to clear the mounts. Had to cut out the bar weights. I just grind these three tack welds and pound it into the bar so it retains the weight and I have room for the hand guard hardware. I have ordered some shorty levers because the stock levers will not work with the hand guards. Swapped my Honda monkey take off grips onto the Klx. Had to cut the throttle side off so I could modify the throttle tube.

    Damn!

    Hot fuel in a hot tank that's not venting properly. And no... He is not spitting in his eye per se, but spitting water in his eye till they get the bottle. Some of the comments below the vid are ridiculous I think.

    You have to turn up the volume to hear whats going on.

    Tires mounted and balanced, engine oil and rear gear box oil changed. Unfortunately I had so many issues with my phone battery dying or my phone running out of storage that I didn't get to the brake and clutch bleeding parts yet. I'm trying to clear space on my phone to record those tomorrow.

    At this rate the footage is probably so bad I'm not sure I want to make a video. :p

    I'm in Utah visiting family, and saw my first ever lane filtering motorcycle. It made me unreasonably happy to see it. :yay:

    Beautiful day today and making me miss the bike. I picked up stuff from my storage unit to drop off the family and I was dying that I had tge bike just sitting there. I need to win the lottery so I can move somewhere with year round riding. Lol
