trail tech has amazing customer service. i've been shooting emails back and forth with them all day long for the last couple weeks.

thanks for the info on the 68-a, i'm soon about to start another bonded title process so if that comes up, at least I'll understand.

for someone who knew I wasn't going to end up buying anything from them at that particular moment the guy I spoke to was especially friendly and helpful. My speedo will definitely be a trailtech, I mean it's the obvious choice anyway.

And I'll keep this updated, I'm probably going to do the 68-a deal the week after next, so we'll see what happens.

be aware that the ac current will eventually kill your horn if you're running one (even the ones that say they are ac/dc compatible).

on my old ktm (also an ac regulator bike), I would ONLY use the horn to pass inspection because it would last like 5-6 honks until it stopped working completely and had to be replaced.

the lights and my trail tech vapor had no issues dealing with the ac current, though.

I've got one of those squeeze horns to pass inspection

I originally bought it for when I was going to plate the 50 but that never happened. Thanks for the tip though, good lookin' out

Are you guys not installing rectifiers on your bikes? You really should.

a rectifier isn't really needed for most components. you also lose some power when you pass the AC through it.

for what I plan on running, I need a rectifier.

I will be using a rectifier as the kx apparently already has a rectifier... according to the service manual at least. I was in Chicago all last week so I still haven't messed with it to find out, but if the manual says it's there, odds are it is.

I can't believe that I'm still trying to get this thing plated. The DMV regional office in Houston wants this 68a form but every theft unit I speak to about getting it done tells me I've been told wrong and to call the title division of the DMV. I call Austin and they're telling me the regional office in Houston has misinformed me and that I need to call them, guess what the regional office has to say when I do that?

Getting pretty fed up and tired of all this bullshit. I might give up if I don't get somewhere soon.

You need am agent tag, from a dealer. then you don't even need inspection or anything!

I'm hopefully getting wheels, tires, and a few other things for the 150F shortly, and I'll be dealing with the whole no title thing.

hopefully getting somewhere, lady at the DMV called me earlier to tell me it will need to be titled as reconstructed... Sounded like a load of to me. She looked into it some more and called me back. Apparently my terminology with "converted for road use" is confusing the Rhodes scholars down at the local tax office. She now wants me to go in there and apply for a corrected title to correct the problem with the body style, and when they ask what I've done to the vehicle she wants me to say it was "made road ready" not "converted for road use" fingers crossed...

Had some free time at work on thursday and came up with some kx-sm decals out of an old kfx logo. Which one do you guys like?

I'm leaning towards the last one.
