Episode 7: Wiring Harnesses
Episode 7 is all about wiring harnesses. We discuss inspecting the wiring harness on your new to you (old) bike, and how to decide whether to repair or modify your existing harness or build a new one from scratch.

After establishing our show, and seeing that we have some people that listen regularly, we decided to upgrade our equipment. Up until now we’ve used my old band live PA, ancient destroyed mics, and old cables. The sound quality was less than perfect. Much less.
We finally headed to Guitar Center yesterday and picked up a new Yamaha MG102C mixer, 3 new Shure SM48 mics, and new cables. Episode 6 is our first show with the new equipment. I hope you guys notice the difference!
Episode 6: Stators, Rotors, Voltage Regulators – Charging Systems

Now we’re back on schedule and will be trying to stick to releasing content on Mondays from now on. In other news, we have finally acquired some real equipment! I hope you guys can tell the increase in sound quality. We finally got some new mics (Shure SM48), a nice new Yamaha mixer, and cables. Pretty stoked to have some nice stuff. I can already tell how much better things sound while editing the show, I hope you all think so too.

After recording Episode #4 on cleaning carburetors, listener Jeff sent us some crazy pictures. He has a 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 500R he bought to clean up and re-sell. He sent us these pictures of the inside of the carb float bowls. I’ve gotta say, I’ve never seen green fuzz like this inside of a set of carbs! What about you guys?
Just a heads up to our listeners! Motorbike Mondays has now reached the #5 spot in the Automotive Category on iTunes! Thanks so much to all of our listeners and fans, we appreciate your support.
