busy few weeks upgrading
« on: March 27, 2021, 11:43:32 AM »
Since getting the bike a few weeks ago I've been busy getting it ready for touring ..

First was to alter the pannier racks to fit my existing GIVI luggage.


to



Then make a bracket for my sat nav then add a relay powered fuse box to supply it and an extra USB charge point or two.



Then Front fender extender



Rear Powerbronze hugger





Indicator relocation kit, fantastic bit of kit with the extra side repeaters now on.



Add a ball mount ... not sure what for yet but probably my phone as I don't like too many things in pockets, plus bought a plug in USB charge point with voltmeter.



On advice I've fitted some grip puppies as I felt the grips were too thin and these feel much better plus reduce the bit of vibration there is.



Rear grip seat cover for the pillion



And an Optimate  charge point..



oh, and an Innovv K2 dual dash cam system





that should do it,.... for now   :001:

 Are the Grip Puppies standard size or the larger ones?

The indicator set was from a guy on Facebook.. Adv Moto.  I like the way the original mounting points are now side repeaters.

I just bought the standard Grip puppies, felt really big at first but soon got use to them.


Got my Scotland tour booked for May.. fingers crossed we are good to go!

The guy is called Terry Harrison. You can contact him here (I have put spaces between name and @ to avoid robot troll programs spamming him).
terry.harrison   @protonmail.com

I bought a kit earlier in the year but I am waiting for better weather to fit it as I will be removing the body panels as part of doing a full 24k service and all fluids change.



There are 3 kits depending on which bike and/or screen you have fitted. I thought I needed kit 2 based on the pdf information pictures and the correct fog light brackets but after emailing Terry and also mentioning I had a Madstad screen fitted he confirmed based on bike model I needed kit 1, so worth contacting and clarifying first (and hopefully when I come to fit he was right  :138: ).

I have the pdf saved but couldn't attach here as it well exceeded the file limit as it is about 6.2MB but if you PM me an email address I will try to send it to you that way if you want. :028:

Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

I have 'Grip Buddies' which are neoprene rather than foam and are bought size specific to the bike (for diameter and width).  :028:
