VROD rear reactor wheel, pulley, compensator bowl and polished brake disc.

by Editor on 02/01/23

This rear Reactor wheels has been deep cleaned, polished with Mother's chrome polish, the brake disc has been sanded and polished and fastened with new chrome bolts. A brand new compensator bowl and reactor pulley have been installed to complete the package.

VROD chrome reactor wheel, polished discs and chrome hardware.

The Reactor front wheel for the 2005 CVO VRSCSE V-ROD came out pretty well after a deep cleaning and polishing the chrome. Sanding & polishing the brake discs and adding chrome rotor bolts certainly completed the overall appearance. It was worth the amount of time that it took in my opinion.

Staycation

by Editor on 01/06/23

Vacation is over & we're back.
For us it was more of a "staycation" since we didn't do any travelling, just stayed home enjoying each others company, relaxing, binge watching Netflix & eating TimTams!
Also decided to unplug from the internet and recharge ourselves, No social media, no messenger, no email and loved it! Much to my surprise it was a lot easier than I thought and this 9 day break made me realize how much time I actually do spend online, maybe too much…
So if I missed your Birthday, messages or didn't respond to your comments, this is why.

Happy New Year everyone, all the very best to you & yours in 2023. 

Ride safe bikers

Detailing VROD brake discs

by Editor on 12/07/22

Meanwhile back at the asylum: Just incase you were wondering how many pieces of 220 grit sandpaper I use to do 3 discs (both sides) the answer is 30 
(That works out to 10 full sheets)
Now I can start with the 320 grit.
400, 600, 800, 1000, 2000 after that I can start to polish.

VROD brake discs

by Editor on 12/02/22

It's time to begin detailing the brake discs on the 2005 CVO VROD, I start with sanding all the inner edges and radiuses with a rotary tool and a coarse drum. It is a little time consumming but pays off in the end since this edge is quite noticible when standing by the bike.
