750wx..sounds like your ac unit may have a clogged drain..a quick shot of air may fix the problem..that ice that builds up on the evaporator has to go somewhere when it melts..it suppose to go down a drain....just a thought.

though we dont have alot of air-con units here, because the air is humid and the aircon exchanger unit is so cold, you get evapouration dripping into the drip tray all the time.

some use a gravity drain away (which like the bloke above said, blocks) and some use a small pump activated by a ball-valve / microswitch arrangement to drain

woooohoooooo!!!

rode late last night with the added rear height, and WWWOOOOOOWWWW!!! i feel like im perched ontop of my bike now, and the turn-in feels so much easier and sooner....(i also dropped the front end down 3.5mm)....

maybe its pscyosomatic, but the bike just feels so right to me now!!!! (i aslo reloacted the rearsets 1" up and 3/4" back...)

rides like a whole new bike, and the mods (all mentioned above) cost a total of 22.00 USD!

its gonna be a shame to sell her.......

I BOUGHT THESE TWO 'PLATES' THAT WERE fabricated by a member here...they had two sets of holes for adjustment....i put mine all the way back....but, needed to get a longer shift rod (about 1" LONGER, AT LEAST....

ANYWAY, HE SOLD EM TO ME FOR 20$ OR SO, PLUS SHIPPING...

YOU CAN SEE EM IN THIS PIC...I PAINTED THEM BLACK!!

how did you drop the front 3.5mm? I've been wanting that "ontop of the bike" feel as well. I feel like sitting way to deep in the bike. Im going to grab some of those washers asap and figure out how to pop em in there. But I have no clue how to drop the front

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">to lower the front, you simply (easier sed than done) extend the fork stancions thru the top triple tree brace---equal amounts--- as desired....be careful doing this....the tendancy of gravity is to drop the bike as far thru as they will go....m4eaning like 4" if you arent careful....i can give you tips to prevent this...if so desired..

did i mention how 'perched' i feel on my bike now???

LOLOLOL

I felt 'perched' on top of my bike after I fitted the rearsets (Harris) and it made it so easy to sling it around the corners. Just when I was about to get used to it and felt that disgusting feeling of bike sagging in the middle like a cruiser, i upgraded the shock, so I am high 'up there' again. Don't sell your bike Ses, I feel tempted to do that all the time, it's a lovely bike though. I know I will always regret selling it, so I wouldn't sell it (I am telling myself). If they were still making TL1000S, I would have definitely bought it. Just can't resist that bike.

eSeMeS750WX If you don't mind taking the time.

Give me some advice/instructions on suspending the rear to throw those washers in? Im going to start with that then look into dropping the front.

And are those rearsets still working out? I think im going to get a set of that guy.
