2012 Ninja Fender Mod


2012 Ninja Fender Mod

2012-07-20
The new-ness of my bike has worn off and I've started modifying it a bit to make it "my own". I recently posted my Garage Door opener mod. I recently had a bit more time so I decided to mod my fender, using all factory parts. Here are the before and after photos:
The great thing about this mod is, besides a little time, I didn't spend a dime. With a hacksaw you too can mod your fender and save some coin.
  1. Remove the fender.
    • The fender on the 2012 Ninja is held on by three bolts and one screw (why, I have no idea)
  2. Now that you have the fender off, strip it down to the core structure leaving an elephant like looking object.
  3. I wanted to retain the tie down loops because my bike didn't come with the grab handles (none of the 2012's did). As a result I hacked off the bottom of the fender support after the loops. Here is what the support looks like on the bike without the lights or plates.
  4. The brackets that are welded to the tie downs have a bolt hole in them where the plastic factory fender was bolted. Using a little of the stock plate from underside of the stock fender I cut out L brackets. I then used these to mount the turn signals to the fender support.
  5. I reused the license plate holder and using the space between the tag and inspection sticker I drilled a hole large enough to mount the license plate light (facing up onto the plate).
  6. All of the wiring was re-run up through the support and under the seat where it all plugged back in with no issues.
  7. Here is the modified fender prior to mounting back up to the bike.
The whole process took about 5 hours simply because I was learning as I went. Thinking back on it I bet it would only take an hour or two depending on your skill with a hacksaw, hammer, and drill. Here are a few pics of the fender on the bike.

Simple Bash Script To Email Server Status

I didn't want to constantly have to log into my servers in order to check on key performance indicators so I decided to write a simple script that would do the checking for me. After collecting results, the script emails them to me. There are a few tools called within the script you might need to install. I also convert any tabs into spaces in order to make sure things line up nicely inside my email. #!/bin/bash SERVER="myserver001" TOEMAIL="admin@myservers.com" FROMEMAIL="myserver001@myserverscom" # Who is logged in and what are they up to WHO=`w` #

How to fix: “PageHandlerFactory-Integrated” has a bad module when setting up ASP.NET

2012-08-22

I was recently setting up IIS 7.5 on Windows 2008 R2 for an ASP.NET site and came across the following 500 error: Handler "PageHandlerFactory-Integrated" has a bad module "ManagedPipelineHandler" in its module list. After a bit of searching, it turns out ASP.NET was not completely installed with IIS even though I checked that box in the "Add Feature" dialog. I found a number of suggestions but found this command. It fixed my issues and got rid of the error. %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -i For a 32 bit system, use the
