That's dedication.

I sure as hell wouldn't have read it all again

I'm trying to keep an updated mod list because my thread is so crazy.

Made a to-do list and its long. So I knocked a couple small things off.

-R-pckg tie rod ends installed
-slim hub almost installed. Need to rewire the horn button the opposite way.

Thanks Stefan, its a significantly better driving position.

Part of all the ms wiring i did today. I'm missing a bunch of 2.49k resistors but everything else is wired up.

Never build your MS with the ECU connector in the case. It sucks dick.

I've also got one of the front spindles/sensor/hubs off Eds MSM, I'd be nice to complete that set as well.
Where did we land in this?
If we can trade uprights, I would be fine with that.
Just give me a few days to pull, as it is bitterly cold here, and I'm working 100+ hr weeks until the end of the month.
I also have front spindles, but they're rough.
$60 shipped?

I'm not sure, but somehow I have 8 ABS sensors....

When I get mine up and running I should have 4 for sale.

That's weird...
Do they all have the same connector?
Not sure if the sensors changed between years.

They all look a little different, but they are supposed to be interchangeable. When I get my spindles back from powdercoating I'll test em all.

I'm looking for a good communicator, for an in car setup. Similar to an aviation headset or something. Does anyone know of a 2 way communicator system that isn't ridiculously expensive?

The audio part is easy and could be built with probably $30 worth of parts. Headsets with good mics are going to be the expensive part.

If outside a helmet, you will want something with a hyper cardioid picup patern and a responce shaped for human voice. I know hams have a prefered crystal mic like this but can't remeber what it is off the top of my head.

This is specifically for outside a helmet. What would you suggest for the audio part?

I'm going to keep searching for cheap headsets on cl and stuff, but ideally it would use the same connection as a radio headset, but just be wired between the 2.

Couple of mic pre-amps and some headphone amps (look up cmoy amp). Can all be done with a few op-amps, pots, resistors and protoboard. Could even add mute buttons to the mic pre's to make them push to talk or something. If you are looking for circuits (I can build circuits, hate designing them!) Go check out the Eliot Sound Products project section.

Yeah, headsets can be found. I have a nice Bayredynamic DT108 headset/mic I got for $30 at a ham-fest that would be perfect for something lime this. Maybe some army surplus of some sort might work?

Push to talk doesn't really matter to me. More for me and a passenger (read hailey) on long trips.

Found a couple decent ones on local CL, will keep searching. I'll check out my local army surplus too.

I'll give you $35 for it

Oh and I specifically want the noise canceling ones.

It's my gaming headset and what I use for talkback when doing audio recording, would take way more than 35 to get me to let go of them. :P

PTT is handy if the mics pick up a lot of car noise (will have to test and see).

If you want to be real fancy, you could add a line in for music and even an out to connect the mics to a phone through one of those TRRS connectors.

this is where just about every audio circuit I have built has been stolen from.

Maybe even blutooth for the phone part.

I have serious problems with project creep...

You suck

I just found out ms3 has nifty little built in pwm control for fuel pumps, closed and open loop and other cool bits for starting and stuff. You should go full closed loop, so I can copy your settings later....
