    I'm glad you like them. They are a very good quality. If you want to straighten out the very bottom - DO NOT trim off any more than you need.

    Put the bottom on a piece of wood perfectly flat. Then take a piece of aluminun bar or angle stock that goes all the way across the bottom of each leg. Use a brand new utility/box knife to cut them. Do it in one swipe, not multiple. You only have to trim about 1/8" to make them perfectly straight. Do NOT cut off more than you need.

    Ride safe!

    Did you get my message on the pegs you had for sale? I'd take them for the $40 + shipping. I can do paypal if that works for you. Thanks

    Hey Blueribbon...I saw your bike on the Old Farts thread and have a question on the Cobra Highway Bars. Was the installation a bolt on---easy as pie---or were there some obstruction issues you had to deal with? I've heard there could be an obstruction issue with the brake pedal and/ or shifter. I have the same bike as you but not rigged as nice as yours looks great. Thanks.

    I have the Scala system, the the ear phones are hard-wired. I just bought a cheep pair of ear buds at Wally World this morning, and I'm going to cut the wires os the Scala system, and try the ear buds. If it seems to work, then I would try the noise cancelling. I can dig through Google, but if you have the model on the Soney electronic noise cancelling earphones, I'd appreciate it.

    Please use e-mail- :

    There is an FM radio built into my Scala, but it starts at the bottom of the band, and you must hold a button for 3 seconds to change up. My favorite station is up 11 stations, and it is a pain to get up there. Also, the antenna is very directional, so facing certain directions, the signal is weak.

    I think my best bet is to plug my mp3 player into the Scala.

    It is going to be hotter than he## this weekend, and I'm going to mess with the helmet and cheap ear buds, and see if I can get something better working.

    Hi Blueribbon! I had pondered with the same issue for a while until.... I purchased a pair of Sony electronic noise cancelling earphones, replaced the rubber earbud with foam earbuds, plugged into my Scala Bluetooth comunication system for mobile and fm radio as well as hard wired to small mp4/fm radio. the noise cancelling earphones are a very good investment at $50 they take the wind noise down a few notches but yet alow for traffic noise to be heard. I wear a Shark Vision retro full face helmet and have the same bike and color youve got! I can post you a picture of the setup if you are interested. the next step would be custom made earplugs with stereo earphones molded into them around $250 for a decent pr. that would be your best bet imho.
    hope this helps,
    stay safe and keep the red nice and bright!
    regards, Zev
