Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere, but I noticed today that most of the screws on my taillight covers were loose. One of them was ready to fall out. You guys might want to check yours.

Anyone notice that the yetti on the tach is different than those on the seats and side emblem? Less hair.

Patience is not my biggest virtue, but I guess I don't have a choice! Would appreciate a heads-up if you see one for sale anytime soon.

You can buy the decals and put them back on. They run about $110, though.

You can get them on ebay. I paid about 58 for the set. I was going to take them off the second I got home, but held off and now I like them. Had to get a replacement for the AEV hood.

I think they look good on winter chill. But I didnt really like the look of them on my white. If they didnt stand out so much I would have left them.

This confused me too. Just grab it and flip it upside down. So that the switch is on the top. Rotate it

Did it a long time ago. Honestly I found no difference. Actually quite stupid! Would like someone to chime in whom found some advantage to this mod.

I didn't like it as well either. I'm guessing maybe it works well for people that are short

I'm not short or stupid but I found that it gave me a more unobstructed view through the front windshield (because it raised it a few inches out of the middle of the windshield). Also, because the wider portion of the mirror is now at the top, I have more visibility through the back windsheild.

I thought it was a joke. Then I did it and still thought it was a joke. I guess the jokes on me. WOT. (waist of time)

I have an Arctic with 12500 miles on it. No mods, no scratches, dents, rips, tears etc...

What would you pay?

Well The Arctic is one year old in a week and wouldn't you know it the engine light came on. Take to the dealer and yep, needs a new head. Only 6,200 miles. Hope to get it back soon, was the first problem I had, but boy it was the big one.
