Another day and some more work done.
Weight comparison Akra vs Laser slip on:
A; 2Kg 341 gr
L; 2Kg 889 gr (including silent insert)
So added a little weight but lost 16db stationary
All fairings and lights have now been removed
-Tail+light; 830 gr
-Passenger seat; 781 gr
-Mirrors; 400 gr
-Side fairings; 1Kg 214 gr
-Bellypan; 860 gr
-Top fairing; 970 gr
-Intake cowls; 291 gr
-Headlights; 1kg 725 gr
-Side cowls under seat; 165 gr
-Supplementary air tanks; 122 gr
-Tank fairing; 1Kg 70 gr
-Various fasteners; 105 gr
When removing the intake tubes i saw you could just unplug the supplementary air tanks, after that i plugged all holes in the tubing and this is the result
I am planning on buying straight intake tubes but this will have to wait as i have other prio's right now. This sollution will have to do untill then.
Further Mr (or Mrs) honda was nice enough to provide us aspirant racers with a fairing stay that can be drilled to hold the BAS
After that just mounted the BAS with 2 new alu bolts and secured it with a little locktight for peace of mind
After that, started her up to ensure everything was still running. No issues whatsoever.
Still getting used to seeing green oil in the sighting glass:drunk:
One question; What are the 2 relays in the headlight for? Can they be removed?
When all this was done mounted the trusty 919, rode it to our local 'track shop' and brought these home
They are a serious step up from the stock ones looking at weight. I will do a full 520 vs stock 525 comparison once mounted. But i can tell you that the front sprocket is verry light
Enjoy, and i look forward to hearing your comments and avice
