Mods and Appearance / Re: Fuel filler cap colour

I can’t help you with the colour but I’d think carefully about painting the ‘horseshoe’. You could affect the fit / engagement of the bag locking mechanism. And the ‘horseshoe’ could end up looking like a dog’s dinner if the paint starts to wear off after you fit and remove the bag a few times.

Mods and Appearance / Fuel filler cap colour
« Last post by Timbo on Today at 04:33:18 PM »
I know it's a long shot but has anyone found out the colour of the fuel filler cap?

I bought an SW-Motech EVO tank ring (reluctantly, I really want to keep the look of the bike as neat as possible), but the outer ring that replaces the one on the bike is grey and not silver. If I keep the tank ring I will need to respray it to get a better match.

You can see the colour difference on someone's youtube video here:
I know I'm probably being daft but the colour mismatch really offends me. I'd rather wear a backpack.  :001:

Welcome!

I recently installed the Gilles levers; they are so much better than the stock, especially the clutch lever which I can now reach comfortably.

Also rad guards and tail tidy - Evotech ones which were good quality!

Enjoy the bike - when it arrives :)

The "ram" air intake on the R is not really a forced intake as most bikes like the RR. The intake is not connected to the frame/engine intake as a gap is required in order to turn the bars. This gap will cause a loss in intake pressure and ram effect and it is even possible that turbulence at the gap could even cause negative pressure. Not saying it does but certainly possible. In any event it is generally said that an optimum FIXED ram intake can increase HP by about 5h.p. but it only happens at over 100mph. It must be able to compress the air and to do this the air must reach 230mph in order to compress at normal air pressure the only way to do this is to narrow down the intake tunnel. With that gap all (if any to begin with) is lost.

In reality the single R does not have a ram intake, just a basic non-forced system. Bottom line the windscreen should make no difference even if completely covering the "intake" the one on the frame has more than enough clear area to feed the engine at redline.

Thank you for this as I like learning. Also thank you for letting me know since I really like the look of my Vstream and dread the thought that I would need something else ;))
