Questions about "Farkles" for Ulysses

Couple questions related to you Farkles:

1) Does the Kaoko throttle control work well with the Ulysses--w/o having to lose handguards?
2) Anyone have any recommendations on how to prevent the muffler from rusting like mad, short of replacing with one of different material?

1. Yes, works well with hand guards
2. Ceramic coating or aftermarket stainless steel

+1 on the Kaoko throttle working really well. Looks right and does not interfer with the hand guards at all. It works better than two previoius throttle meisters I had on other bikes which tended to let the throttle slip. The kaokos are one of my top two mods (the other is the windshield height)

What does the XOPTI remap cost?

Does it cure the "Your'e riding me too mellow and I wanna run" stumble?

Stupid Question but will help us New Guys

Treadmarks... I think I understand it enough to ask if Threadmarks is a guru rather than a source of parts. Is this correct?

Regardless of who and what... Where can we get our hands on some of this great stuff?

Right side Cooling duct is really hot on my interest list... Boy I can't stand a stock bike! This Farkles list is awesome!

That would be correct Brother Newb. I don't sell parts, but I sure like to put them on.

I like to make them from scratch more than buying them, but I can't make everything. I trust American Sport Bike, Trojan Racing and Dark Horse Moto to make or acquire the items I can't fabricate. Go to their web sites and window shop for a while, just to get an idea whats out there. Then search the forums on what you're interested in. I drool every time I do.

Check out my posts from here, badweb and buelletin board. A man can learn alot when it comes to farkling by reading about those who have farkled before him.

Be sure to check out mods from Ft_Bstrd and Maximum too, as they have written about some of their great mods as well.

You and your girlfriend have gotta learn the difference between need and want. With the cargo capacity of the Uly, it should be easy to pack for two for camping. Tent and sleeping bags would be the toughest part, but with a little creativity, it should not be that hard to carry them on top of the side bags.

BTW, the is no trailer hitch for the Uly. There is no place to mount one.

Raised Windscreen for Ulysses

I just purchased, received and installed a windscreen adapter I purchsed from the UK eBay store. The adapter turns the stock Ulysses windscreen into a height and pitch adjustable screen. I am 6'3" and at the lowest setting I get no buffeting and no helmet shake as i did with the stock tall screen. All I can say is that this is the best aftermarket item I purchased for the Ulysses. This is the link to the screen:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MESE:IT&ih=006

I ordered the screen and had it in my hands in a matter of 4 days; I wish that US online stores worked that well.

Air conditioned seat is just a joke. There is one ficticious item in each category. Glad someone was paying enough attention to catch atleast one of them.
