I hope the administrators will allow this thread to stay in the discussion section...:)

Simple basic rules... You can comment or post but it has to be related to something you did to your Slingshot... You can post every day if you have done something everyday... Could be as simple as putting air in your tires .... Booooooooring... :D or as cool as some progress on a new Turbo kit... Coooooool.... :snaphappy:

It doesn't matter, had a lot of fun with a thread like this over on the Triumph Experience Forum so thought I give it a go here.

Here is what I did today... I made my own valve cover ... " cover "... :smuggrin:. Had some aluminum sitting around and thought I can make one of those. Into it for about $5 in hardware. Will be texturing it and getting better looking hardware when completed. Today was make it and fit it... Tomorrow I should have it painted....

Had an alarm installed on the Slingshot at Best Buy out in Yorba Linda California. The install tech, Chad, did a terrific job. He was able to look up all of data on the other Slingshot installs using their corporate BBS.
Thats some good info... More details for those looking to do the same install might be helpful.

Paint is drying today on my cover. should have installation images this afternoon.

After putting all the back panels on - -
carol & i realized - THAT - we not not put the License-Plate light wire thru the hole in rear panel - - ahhh - panel off, wire installed - panel back on - - NEXT - we remembered that we did not tighten the top rear Shock-Bolt - - ahh - - and covers all back on - - ahh - -
SO - - i remembered that little hole in passenger side storage compartment to access the top rear-shock-bolt - - and we tightened it via that small hole - - GREAT - -

Experiencing steering issue every morning, going to work each morning it is almost impossible to turn the steering wheel to the left. Never have the problem leaving work or on the weekends. Any help would be appreciated?

Retire..............Problem solved

If your serious I would get it to the dealer, maybe your rack bearings are going bad.

Just to catch up...
A couple weeks ago I installed the red Alpha cam cover, black coil cover, and stainless exhaust cover.
Four days ago installed my own LED wiring harness and fuse block.
Three days ago installed new red LEDs in the foot wells and a switch in the dash.
Two days ago installed flame LEDs in the fender vents and a switch in the dash.
Yesterday installed color changing LEDs to the underside of the taillight lenses to light up the rear end, added a third switch to the dash, and ordered red silicone hoses.
Today I ordered a red CAI and visor for the radio. Tonight I'm installing color changing LEDs on the front.
Tomorrow I plan on finishing the LED installation and wash the beast.
Friday I will take off (it's date night)
Saturday I will install the hoses.
I'm hoping to install the CAI this weekend or early next week.
Oh, and I have floormats coming.

Then...off to the Smokies to ride and do some more shopping!

Agree.. without being there to experience to issue I would not give input that could be wrong. The dealer is the way to go.

Have you not seen some of the ridiculous wraps, paint, turbos, wheels, and lightning rods being done? I'm only scratching the surface. I'm still trying to figure out how to tell which one is mine when we walk out to it.
