I can't find it now.
Written by douglasvanb on 4/15/2012 at 05:18 pm

I want to go that route at some point in the future when I have the money and
shop space. I was thinking of using the stock housing as a template or mold
that I could then lay LEDs inside of and cast new resin lenses... or something
along those lines. I know very little about plastic casting at the moment but
I'll learn more about it when I have the time/money.

Cheers!

the 5/15 watt stock ones. Not TOO bright with running lights but very noticeable
when braking. And no they didn’t melt the taillight housing which was much
smaller than the PC.

Being a new PC owner I have been looking at all the information that I can find about the PC. Now somewhere in my wanderings I saw some information where a PC owner had switched out the stock brake master cylinder with a smaller, different on

    Just a couple of observations from my own experience. Old brake fluid feels spongy. Until I changed mine, I was considering braided steel lines. Not anymore. Magura I believe still makes levers that might fit the PC. When I've used them on ot

    Ben, It might have been me. I did some swapping out of front end components on my 90 PC. I am currently using a Suzuki GSX 600 MC that uses a 12.7mm piston; Honda (from the 80's and 90's at least) used a 14mm piston. Here is
