Good luck, this is going to be interesting!

Not all today, but...

New in the showroom



Safely back home.
Time to fit the Barrett pipes and lose all those Kilograms.



Side stand relocator and Weld 86 bash plate fitted (wiring to be tidied yet)



High guard, fork protectors and changed to SW Motech crashbars which i modified for RIGID Dually light brackets and made Highway pegs for


Close-up of fork protector mount


Swapped the stock Scorpions for Dunlop 908 RR rear and Michelin Starcross HP4 front knobbies.
Changed out the rear rack, and fitted a Fumoto valve and drain tube for quick oil changes and took care of the "studs" for the bashplate and crashbar mounts.




Installed my BRP top triple clamps and Scotts under bar steering stabiliser.
Made up a custom dash to take heaps of extra switches, wiring, controls etc
It controls (L to R) ABS quick disconnect, Fuel mapping switch, Rigid lights on with Hi-beam / Off / Constantly on with ign. on, 2nd cooling fan switched independantly, Spare switch, and underneath is a Heat-troller for the heated grips


Made up brackets and fitted my TOP SECRET "Ranger Hi-Way pegs" after thinking that all of the bolt-on pegs were junk. These work fantastically and can easily be clicked in, or out with your feet.
(Let's see how long it is before these get copied.....)

Here they are "closed"


And here they are "out for use" and super comfy


You can also see that i've drilled and countersunk the Weld 86 bashplate for some more ventilation to the VR


OK. That's enough TOP SECRET mods for today.

I've only just learnt to put up pics....can you tell?

Cheers,
Ranger Rob

Grrrrr....

[QUOTE=GrenDesb;20193533]Min got stolen last night.

Now that is BAD news!!!

Those F-ckers don't really know what they do to a bloke when they steal their bike.

Good luck on a speedy return.....hopefully.

changed the oil on my Adventuer and my friend's RC8.

Oil change on RC8 was a so easy. I was shocked. You just need to take out two bolts on the left side that are connected to two screens, that will drain the oil. Then change the filter which is on the same side of course. That's it! It took 20 minutes.

950 A Fuel pump

Finally replaced my fuel pump with a Facet 40171. What a difference. The stock pump lets the float level go down too much before firing up. The Facet keeps it just right. Mid range RPM cruising is so much smoother now.

Now for a ride this weekend at my buddies TT and Flat track. Video to come.

Got the new front wheel installed.



Since we have a snowstorm inbound.. I drained the floats and plugged in the battery tenders on all the bikes



...and since I've modified everything I can think to modify on my 950... it is time to work on the 500's mods a bit more

Looks like the deal may well be off.

Might have to wait a little while and go for a 990r next year.

Or wait a little longer and consider an 1190r.
