No mirrors Hollywood?  :187:

That's one way to fix the vibration problem.

Oh, I rode in the sweltering humidity today.  Still awesome.

Picked out the vinyl color I am going to use to wrap it. One of my good friends does wraps and he is going to do the same color as me on his vette so we can share the same roll of material.

Settled on 3M Gloss Green Envy-


My choices were green envy or Avery matte metallic purple, which I have been wanting forever but always pick something else-




I think eventually I may go to purple but for now it shall be green envy because of the material savings.

I'm in the process of getting the RR black tank panels to replace the weird bronze ones as well. Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks I will return with the finished product.

It's a long, and disappointing, story.  The gist is that the Rizoma bar ends do not accommodate CRG Arrow mirrors...  Waiting back from a manufacturer to see if they can sell me turned-down bar ends to accommodate the mirrors, before I reach out to local machine shops to turn down the stockers.  It's doesn't feel right without rear view mirrors...

Try contacting http://www.rhinomoto.com/

They have many different bar ends and i am pretty sure that they will have some for this application.

Fitted a $10 reservoir (sight window facing rider):

Would you mind if I ask what levers you're using?

Bought an Abba paddock stand. Used it for the first time today and it worked as well as I had hoped. No problems getting the bike up or down (I know I should be able to use a traditional paddock stand by myself but a bit nervous about dropping it). Will have to see how it stands up to repeated use.

Made lubricating the chain a lot easier and less messy.

Spent a good part of the day on the bike having fun.

Finally got around to setting up the sag...the front was with the parameters given in the handbook...but the rear was compressing about 15mm more than suggested...took a fair few twists of the dial to reach about 20mm compression. Not ridden it yet.

I did mean to tell you your rear was sagging a bit but I thought it was your age  :745:

I did mine when I got the bike and had to turn the rear adjuster quite a lot but I weigh 100kg.

Off out tonight to see how the stutter is, hopefully its away. Will let you know later Alzo

I went the other way. Had an Abba, but sold it and bought a paddock stand, as I find the paddock stand easier to use, and much more stable.
