Re: Folding levers

I have levers from FP Racing on mine, not sure about shipping across the pond though.

Re: Crash BARS or Crash BUNGS

No one prefer bungs / mushrooms ?? A couple years back I was manufacturing bungs for Triumph S3 bikes and they saved some paint for some folks. However, I have also seen other bikes in which the bung took so much of the crash that it broke the bike's frame because all of that pressure was concentra...

Re: Madness

I'm guessing that panniers aren't big sellers there, plenty of times that they would have stopped his progress. I'm pretty sure that trying that here in the midwest U.S. would get you hurt, people seem to have no sense when it comes to staying in their lanes and merging in a hurry.

Re: Mounting 1550 Pelican cases

Mikeylikesit: Do you have a model number for the Doskocil cases? I know they have some that are thicker than others, etc. Some are downright flexible (but light weight) and I'm curious how they might hold up.

Re: soft side bags 62012025100 and 62012925000

Same thing happened to me (before the zipper burst). I had been riding in rain and when I attempted to remove the bag I found the latch to be full of road grit and was difficult to pull. I gave a bit stronger tug and yanked the plastic knob off, resulting in the steel pin shooting across the shed. L...

Re: soft side bags 62012025100 and 62012925000

We don't get the soft/side bags with the bike here in Australia either, disappointing. I've been looking into purchase some and have learnt that, Product Code: 62012025100 has been superseded by Product Code: 62012025100A. I've found no explanation of what's different. Don't be too disappointed tha...

Re: What types of oil are you using?

In between dealer servicing I run Rotella T6 5W-40, and really like it. Super smooth shifting, no clutch issues at all... easier starts when it's cold... and it's half the price of Motorex. I run it in everything I have. Fully Synthetic? Yes, Rotella T6 is fully synthetic Heavy Duty diesel oil (thu...

Re: Fuel cap increasingly difficult to remove/insert, 2011.

Sometimes its best to leave well enough alone.... I had trimmed the red plastic a bit and was getting along fine, although I had complained to the dealer about it. Dealer ordered a new cap (which came with a properly coded key, so there''s that) and I swapped them out a few weeks back. Now I wish I ...

Nelson-Rigg Spirit 50 Saddle Bags

Do the straps rub on body plastic, etc? Did you leave the supports for the factory bags on?

The zipper on one of my factory bags let go on Friday and I'm leaning towards replacing. The factory bags are nearly unusable for much more than rain gear anyway.

Cheap air box that works

First off....I'm feeling like an idiot. I had my EPC enabled and didn't realize it. The map is smooth though! Second, Kev I see that for ethanol fuel you're suggesting a +4% to the F tables. Is that above 2000rpm and 20% throttle or all across the tables? I'm running map 18 with ITG -80, no second f...

Cheap air box that works

I see. My bike is smoother now and acceleration feels fine. I've always sucked at wheelies to begin with, not to mention I'm weighing in at 265. My rear tire is pretty close to replacement too, maybe that's all part of the issue where wheelies are concerned.

Cheap air box that works

I can verify the 3 week wait on the -80 filter via SportingWood. He didnt have the plate available when I started gathering parts for my air box so I got mine from George (along with a fuel filter kit). Interesting comment above about wheelies, maybe I need to twist the throttle more in those lower ...

Anyone using Seat Concepts foam?

Good thing I checked!

The Pelican case I have is a 1400.

I took the rack off of the bike and used the slots as a guide to drill the mounting holes in the case. Used rubber washers under steel washers inside the case for weather-proofing.

I think it's a 1450, but I picked it up used. I will look to see if the tag has the size on it. It is about perfect for the rack though.

Help with tire choice

I just ordered a set of Conti Motion tires, they've received good reviews and are very competitively priced. (Under $200 U.S. per pair on sale)

Haven't spooned them on yet so no reports.

Rode ~200 miles today after installing George's plate, ITG filter, removing 2nd flies and loading the #18 map. In one word: Smooooth No more low speed surge, on/off throttle snatch is gone, pulls well from lower engine speeds, etc. I felt much more confident in the curves. Thanks to Kev and anyone e...
