I am coming off a 950 where I removed the SAS with no ill effects. I just acquired an '07 Adventure with 30k miles. With no service records or PO info, I am hurrying to ready it for an Alaska trip in July. I am planning a quick tank off/once over, checking/adjusting valves, new plugs, fuel filters and pump. I had planned on doing the SAS removal while I am in there.
For the short run, the emphasis will be on street riding. So far, I have been OK with the throttle response--might change when I get back and have time for more dirt.
I am also looking seriously at the 2 into 1 exhaust setup and foam filter/air box removal.
I am handy enough with the mechanical stuff and working through the inevitable issues you run into when making modifications.
But I am really wondering how far I should go with the mods keeping in mind I need to make them, sort them out and have the bike reliable by mid June.
Any advice??? Thanks in advance!
