The space is usable.
like the look of the SP cowl. I need the Chinese to make red one as getting a white/black one then getting it painted up etc ticks the top difficult/expensive box
Rattle Can painting is a fairly easy skill to quicly develop (needs must etc.) so long as it's a plain colour and not translucent/candy.
Would still add about £15 - £20 though.
aye I had looked into it and got the prices from RS paints. But with the paint, clear coat/lacquer and shipping - the price was coming up quite rapido. Tight arse me
Another couple of tasks ticked off the list...
VHT Satin Black and Autosol.
Front Discs Re-Bobbined. LHS had got a bit free laterally due to jammed caliper dust seals on outside of LH Caliper. Both calipers replaced, were a bit crusty anyway, but discs are well within thickness tolerance and have no measurable run-out
First day out on the bike since I fitted the DynoJet Power Commander 5.
Just a quick blip round in a circle.
More power? No clue as I never went out of a limit but that's the Sussex coast...
Did it feel different?
If I was test riding a bike where all the engine internals had been lightened that would be it.
If I say 'the acceleration in neutral is staggering' you probably know what I mean.
The acceleration in the lower gears, all I could use, is unchanged at 'suicidal insanity' level.
And it made the Translogic quick shifter even more of a deal as I'm only just getting used to it.
Oh well. Wonderful to be back on the bike after over two months of lay-off.
How I love the blade's 'you just look at the target, I'll steer' attitude.
The problem, close around here, is finding places that offer an excuse to slow down so I can speed up again.
And I got home just before it tipped down. Bonus.
Pity the ABS light is flashing.
Did you had it tuned in a Dyno?
Thought it was you who rapidly sold the ABS model and bought the non-ABS as a replacement! ...I must have got my wires crossed
That was me
.....my wires definitely crossed then
Nope. It's pretty stock and DJ have a library of 'we dun dis wun before' that has good rep.
I've deliberately tried the ABS and it's good.
However I take the point that it doesn't 'fail safe'.
It's due a service so either I or my dealer can change the fluid and bleed it. Then, if it doesn't clear, I can make further plans afterwards.
Ride out to Buxton.
Decided to give the new RST 1 piece a good ride out. Great views and great twisty roads.
Need I say more!
where it belongs mate, fair play to you
Stuck a pair of Power 5's on the 14 Blade. Feels strange for sure.....as does any new set of tyres. Hope they are as good as the Angel GT's.
Great on the road and after my initial rear grip problem, great on track too.
Took a drive to Bournemouth this morning to pick these up for next year. I plan on doing braided lines and a full fluid flush over winer, plus a possible respray of the original fairings. Might do my calipers white aswell.
Love the Castrol paint
Happy on road or on track, photo from yesterday on the Nant Y Garth Pass and Thursday on a Bennett's Rewards track day, just love riding this bike.
