    Default Your Cheapest, silliest, craziest Mod?

    I've been running my Bonneville for about 6 months with a bent piece of chain link fence for a shift knob (not arm just the knob). Well went to go out to I-90 Motorsports open house Triumph days this morning and "BAM" it finally snapped.....I've had the replacement for awhile but knew it was stripped out still don't feel like re-tapping so it's off to the hard ware for nut, lock washer, bolt, and finnish it off with an old piece of BSA rubber.
    Anyway who else has had to do a weird roadside Mod and ended up keeping it, because it really wasn't that bad?

    After having a real shit job of soldering done by a dealer who made my new cables for my apes, the end snapped off two miles from the Middle of Fucking Nowhere. Lukly had a pliers in my tool bag and used it to pull the stripped throttle cable and limp my way into a town.

    My tail light is fully supported by black gaff tape. beats the hell out of paying for the replacement when I know the fender is going.

    Remember kids, don't waste you money on one of those fancy tool rolls. Zip ties and duct tape cn already fix everything!

    Mine just happened yesterday. I was riding out of work and there's a bunch of RR tracks, so I swerve to catch them on an angle and one of them is a bit high and catches the tiny rod that holds the spring on my kickstand. I heard it, and I look down to see my kickstand floppin agains tthe pavement. I pull over and thankfully ALWAYS keep a bunch of zip-ties in my tool bag. Put a couple together so I could slide them down over the kickstand to keep it up on the ride home. When I got home I took out my old kickstand (a longer one) pulled the spring off of that, cut it and bent it to size and put it on. The fucker wont stay on cuz there's not enough length left on the nub that holds it on AND part of it is missing from hitting the RR tracks. Out came the zip ties again. Now they're holding the spring onto the kickstand itself. Seems to be working so far. I'll keep it like that till winter and I'll do a proper repair.

    held my lower pipe up with a few hose clamps hooked together after the rear mounting bolts fell out. it actually looked pretty cool.

    I accedentally melted my negative battery terminal when a wrench touched both terminals at the same time. Instead of dropping $100+ on a new battery, I just JB welded the steel insert back into the terminal and I was back on the road.

    I used the biltwell exhaust kit to make my pipes and just decided that the HD shovelhead flanges it came with would be perfect to mount the rear of my exhaust. Every once in awhile someone notices hahaha

    I keep JB welding the same crack in my gas tank for a couple of years, it will hold for a couple of months, and then start leaking again. I just peel off the old stuff and JB weld it again...

    I'm thinking a lot of you guys are confusing "quick fixes" simple modifications?

    Kyle nailed it.
