another feeler for a couple of ideas
i have been thinking of other things that may be helpful to the rc51 gang and i have a few brewing, but i'd be curious if there is interest before pursuing design and manufacture of them, so i'm reaching out to you guys for input. work is really slow right now so i have quite a bit of time to work on other things.
1. trunk lid/passenger seat quick release.
i built one for my bike where i ran a cable down the side of the subframe and dropped it out just below the front plastic bolt for the tail section. just a quick pull on the cable will release the trunk lid, it's discreet and simple. i could make these fairly easily. would anyone want one? much easier than fumbling with the key
2. ride height adjustable top shock clevis
i discussed this with duckhunter and think it would be pretty straight forward to do. i have to pull my shock to do a spring change anyway so i can probably draw one up pretty easily. basically it'll be a clevis that will allow for ride height adjustment. simply loosen the nut under the tank, then adjust height using a second nut underneath the frame, then simply torque it all up. the big advantage here would be that you can make ride height adjustments with the stock shock, and also without having to unload the swingarm and remove the shock/link bolt (with the ohlins) or drop the clevis to install washers (stock). adjustment range would probably be from stock height to maybe +10mm.
3. plug and play garage door opener
i already have one of these in my bike. i'm thinking about building more if there is interest. simply plug it in parallel with the horn (i'll supply the electric connectors to do this). a tap of the horn button will open the door. this could also be installed into the high beam circuit so a flash of the brights would accomplish the same thing
would anyone be interested if i were to proceed with these? just seeing if i can help out some people with stuff i've done on mine.
