Ok, learned something new about the fuel system of my bike - demand fuel pump.

Um... not sure these are a non return fuel system.

You can definitely get more travel out of the shiver conversion.
It's as simple as shortening the top out spacer. Removing it completely gives you 40mm more travel. 270mm should be enough, maybe ?

Not a GSA but you could try here - welded to the front of the skid plate.
It has never gotten in the way of any of my riding and the weight (a couple of kg of tools) stays low.

Any 600+ sports bike.
Pick something with 20mm bearings to make it easier.
5.5" seems to be as wide as possible for the rear, so modern liter sports bike wheels (6") are out of the question.

09 F8GS and XS800 charger.

Don't knock it 'til you try it !

I decided to see if I could have 2 bikes in 1.
I got sick of changing between road and dirt tyres depending on who I was riding with, so the obvious solution was 2 sets of wheels with tyres and...

Metric units

My best so far is 430km and the bike telling me I had 9km left in the tank. It took just on 17 Litres to fill it. I generally get about 400km out of 15-16L (fuel light just coming on) with spirited...

Good popping or bad?

Mine used to make a pop or 2 on over run on the stock exhaust but not all the time.
I fixed that by changing the muffler. Now it pops all the time on over run. :evil

Just a little bent

So, with maybe doing the APC 14 day in mind, I thought I'd better check out my top mount bolt. I expected it to be ok because before I got this bike it had done 16000km of pure bitumen and only 4000...
