time for personal tailoring
« on: Nov 05, 2019, 02:45 PM »
Had an hour or so on my hands so spent some time changing bits on the new bike, after adjusting the levers, I swapped out the horn and mirrors as London traffic demands both be as good as you can get, also changed the handguards as my 09 came with White one so thought I might as well use them.













I've some more to come, heated grips, centrestand,front  & rear cameras, palm rest, that sort of thing, but not in any rush.

Cheers Mark

yeah clip on throttle thing, I broke my scaphoid and a constant grip on the bars causes it to ache quite a lot, this just eases it a bit.

I have them on all my bikes, originally they were KTM off road EXE mirrors, but you can get the same thing for around a tenner on ebay the only thing to remember is to smear a little grease on the two retaining screws as they sometimes rust a little, but adjustable to much longer than standard and the glass is flat an non-magnifying.

I am interested in which camera system you install and 'how to' also the centre stand - will you be posting photos ?
Cheers.

Yeah Chris I'll definitely post some photos when I install them, might even do a "how to" video, I've got the Cameras ( cheap set from Ebay 30 all in) and centre stand, but not the time or stamina at present, next will be the heated grips & Givi screen I think .

  Any vibration issues with those long mirror stalks?

No not really, I haven't used them on the new bike as yet, but my 09 has had them fitted for 7 years, although simple, they are sturdy in construction and as said before the glass is non-magnified and flat, completely usable upto 100 mph and beyond.

Cheers Mark.

todays additions, hugger/ chain guard & fenda extender as well as the taller Givi screen I picked up.

the Hugger was a bit of a faff and needed to use longer bolts; but I'm guessing it wasn't designed with the aftermarket chainguard I have, the extender was taped and epoxy'd in place, should be good; I'll give it a tug when it's dry., the screen is straight forward to change and a good few inches taller than OEM, should clear the buffeting I was getting from the original.
