The ground wire in my old tail light broke away from the housing, so it’s time for a replacement. The light I had on there is just a cheap-o plastic unit, and this makes the third one I’ve been through, so this time I decided to go with a slightly larger unit that’s made out of metal. The new unit also came with a larger 1157 bulb, but I went ahead and upgraded to a 2357, which will give me about 25% more light when I hit the brakes.
I’m running Shinko SR244 dual sport tires. I don’t head off-road too often, but they’re great for beaches, gravel roads, fire trails, hunting trails, getting back up into the mountains, or whatever nature throws your way.
They offer pretty good grip on pavement, but there is a slight hum and vibration at around 40 mph. It doesn’t bother me much, but it is something to consider, if you’re changing over from street tires like I did.
I just got her out for a bit of Spring maintenance and…dead battery. That’s what I get for going with the el cheapo option last year. You get what you pay for. This time I’ll go with an AGM unit until I can have a pan made for my Antigravity battery
