I am scheduling a server migration and upgrade for Tuesday Nov 13th at Approximately 4:00AM CST. The site will be down for several hours while the data and database are copied to our new dedicated private server.

  • Couldn't tell from the website if it's simply a clear version of the stock fake vent or if it actually has openings. I like my Paramount vent and think it would be pretty neat if it were offered in a see-thru version.

  • During break-in, I got close to 30 mpg. After break-in and I got more familiar with my 2-15 Base Slingshot, mileage dropped to around 28.5. After installing a 13" MadStad Single Adjustable windshield and my Twist Dynamics Canvas Top, mileage dropped again to around 27 mpg. Now with my Hahn Stage 2 turbo setup, my mileage varies between 25 - 26.5 mpg, depending on how hard I get on the throttle.

  • Quote from BKL: “Personally,I feel projector headlights do a good job of illuminating the road immediately in front of the vehicle on Low beam, but when on High beam, the additional light isn't always apparent. On a typical road w/o overhanging trees, it is not always apparent that projector lights are on High beam, but if driving on a country road with overhanging trees or signs over an Interstate, the fact that projectors on High beam tend to throw additional light up above the road can be eas…

  • Quote from samowens44: “Sounds like solid engineering to accomplish what you want or need. Glad to hear you have the skills. Night driving is not for me, so this will not be an issue, hope this thread will give folks some information to work with for their needs of LED lighting. ” I've always enjoyed driving/riding at night and am finally getting my Slingshot's forward illumination to something I like. I dread the day when I may have to give up night rides as I seem to become more sensitive to o…

  • Quote from edwardaneal: “so, for the uneducated here, what exactly is the difference from a drivers point of view? if we have two identical Slingshots with one having a DDM Supercharger with 6 pounds of boost and the other has a DDM turbocharger with 6 pounds of boost. If I didnt know which was which and you let me drive both wearing ear plugs blocking the sound what would be the obvious things that I would notice that were different in the driving experience from one to the other? ” The key dif…

  • Personally,I feel projector headlights do a good job of illuminating the road immediately in front of the vehicle on Low beam, but when on High beam, the additional light isn't always apparent. On a typical road w/o overhanging trees, it is not always apparent that projector lights are on High beam, but if driving on a country road with overhanging trees or signs over an Interstate, the fact that projectors on High beam tend to throw additional light up above the road can be easily seen. As far …

  • Ok. I finally edited a short video I shot of my headlight output and converted it to an animated GIF. About the headlight setup I tested in the attached GIF - I have the stock 2015 outer auxiliary headlights in the stock location. When I installed the Cycle Springs/SlingshotOnly 6-LED headlight bulb setup in early 2016, I modded the outer auxiliary headlights per their earlier instructions (but not part of the current instructions), using a screwdriver to bend down the internal baffle to increas…

  • Turtle Wax Ice car wash does wonders for the black hood accent stripes. Maybe a little less on the backs of the fenders and rear panel, but I like how easy it is to use.

    I kinda liked the original development platform.

  • Quote from War Hoop: “Ya I ran that same gambit only with Boss Hoss and V8 chopper trikes. Occasionally you could get a good deal on a used BH but the V8 chopper trikes are still way over priced. I think they still want like 62,000 now for a chopper trike. ” My neighbor bought a used Boss Hog (I think) and finally got rid of it after having nothing but TROUBLE with it. Has a HD now, but only rides it a couple times/year.

    Based on the Club Slingshot link to Facebook in @UK_Paul's post, I'm not interested if they expect me to join FB!

  • Quote from War Hoop: “More than likely T Rex killed it's self price wise. Priced themselves out of the market. ” Before buying my Slingshot, I had been wanting a reverse trike for several years. The Campagna products were just too expensive for me and when compared to the Slingshot and its offerings at its price-point, the decision to buy the Slingshot was easy. In 2010, while visiting Orlando, we made a trip down to the Miami area to look over a home-built, motorcycle-based reverse trike, but I…

  • If roads are dry tomorrow night, I'll try to see if I can catch some pics.

  • Quote from Br4hm4: “startup-arcimoto-thinks-its-12-000-three-wheeled-ev-wi-1830316377 ” They do look like it. If they can hit anywhere near their price-point, it just may sell well. I like it, but don't know if I have funds available...

    I'm a function over form person. Some folks don't like this fender, but it was the cheapest available when I bought it and now it's only $50! Polaris Slingshot Rear Fender - RIVCO It keeps most of any rooster-tail from getting back up on the rear deck, but it does require drilling a couple small holes. Pretty easy install and you can find the instructions on their website before ordering. Also includes swing-arm mud flap!

  • I thought I have been exercising sufficient caution when riding on wet roads, especially since i now run a 315/35R17 on the rear. Last night, I was returning home during a ride and my Daughter was waiting for me to get home so we could catch up on some Tivo'd shows. I encountered some rain and had slowed down significantly to around 40-45 mph, but when I hit some ponding on the Interstate, I ended up briefly going sorta sideways and into the lane to my left. I had already moved over one lane fro…

  • Video doesn't look bad. Is the center dash light linked to your turn signals and is that part of the newer model Slingshot you have?

  • Quote from War Hoop: “Nother big money kiddie fight? ” I don't believe so. The Act in question basically says replicar manufacturers can sell a relatively small number of replicars per year (around 300 or so, IIRC), something that would appeal to many potential buyers who may not want to deal with building their own or have the ability to do so, but NHTSA has totally failed to do anything to support he law.

  • One problem to keep in mind when trying to use a camera to catch headlight output is most modern cameras automatically adjust their settings and this may make it hard to tell if a headlight or bulb really offers increased light output. I downloaded an app that is supposed to allow me to use my phone's camera as a light meter in hopes I can try measuring light output at different distances. I have yet to try this app.
