SS brake line kit in the front to match the rear. cleaver PVC with blue fittings to match the bike.
Installed new kickstand (previous owner cut the original one in half when he lowered the bike), installed rim tape, and TPS mod (down to 2k rpm - I gave up trying to get it lower because it changed every time I tightened it down).
Tomorrow is new brake and clutch levers, brake fluid, and valve adjustment.
hey al, me too. the only comment i can make about the install is that i had to route the wiring out the (rider's) right side of the headlamp housing (naked bike) to pass it thru the right front of the frame, then cross back to the left side in front of the airbox - the more direct route straight out and along the left side doesn't work cuz there are too many other things passing thru the frame on that side, and while it's easy to thread the wires, you can't get the fuse holder thru. the wires are perfect length for this crossover routing. and yah, nice quality. started raining in the afternoon before i got finished, so didn't get to do a test ride this evening. more news at 11...Installed easternbeaver's H4 Headlight relay kit. Makes a noticeable difference with the stock bulb; going to upgrade that too. Took about 15 minutes. Good quality kit.
8500 miles doesn't sound so bad - i just got 8500 KILOMETRES out of a set of Pilot Road 2CT's, pretty much all those miles coming from 'velocity vacationing' (i.e. brisk-paced sport touring on twisty secondary highways). i had hoped for more - got 11,000 km from previous avon storms.I got 8500 miles from my previous Pilot Road, these 2 CT's will hopefully better that.
