    Not sure. At the time of purchase seems like there was only one size available for the visor. I think it was about 3.5" tall and 12" wide. Sorry, that was a long time ago!!!

    New Battery

    Check the 30 amp fuse under the cap of the starter relay. The starter relay is tucked in to the right of the battery (opposite side of the fuse block). And there's a spare fuse on the bottom of the relay unit. Don't ask me how I know ! Beemerphile has excellent pics and knowledge of this...

    Welcome from Texas ! Revzilla and Twisted Throttle are two of the sites that let you search by bike for aftermarket parts. You can also go to SW Motech, Altrider and Hepco Becker to drool over farkles. You could also fly to Houston, buy mine and ride it home...already farkled ! ;) Good luck

    Shinko 705's

    I've got about 5000 miles on mine and absolutely love them. They're wearing evenly and have about 50% tread left on the rear and 70% on front...mostly highway miles.
