Talking plans for service/ adds-on

bought in Feb 2007 with 19000 miles and ran out tires

3500 miles later

new tires
two oil/filter changes
spark plugs changed to Ir tip
CA stuff removed
removable clear windshield from National Cycles (transfered from my old cb750f before I sold it)
SW Motech guards
Stebel Nautilus horn
saddlebags from leatherup.com


plans

brake pads replacement (front seems need it really soon)
cooler/brake fluid flush
valve adjustment,
fork oil change

Gorilla alarm
brake light modulator (always on)
headlight modulator on/off with beam switch using
http://www.autoswitch.com/
trickle battery charger
StompGrip traction pads
cruise control from http://www.throttlemeister.com/tm.html
maybe PAIR system block for easier access
maybe high renthal bars
maybe GPS when blue tooth wireless will be standard


I am happy with everything else as soon as it function like it is now !!!

I mostly commute and running errands on the bike right now but plan to go one day for couple month trip over US and Canada ... Another plan is to take it to Thunderhill Raceway for couple days when I will have extra $500 in the pocket and at least 5000 miles more on the bike ..

A couple month trip is going to take you more than one day.

You still running the stock seat?

+1 on the Pair system removal. I just did this about a week ago before I went on leave. The install was straight forward, but kind of a pain to get a socket on the in board fasteners. The bike sounds way better w/o the backfire. I also painted the calipers red and accented 'Nissin' in white.

yes I have a stock seat. what are the popular options ? I do use the hooks a lot to carry stuff and wonder when they give in since they are sort of flimsy ....

Corbin, Sargent (which recovers and can reshape your old seat) and a seat that is some guys name but I can't think of it right now. Someone will come along with it.

IMO, you'll need something for a couple of month trip. Actually, you'll need something for a trip more than a day. It can be done without, but with great discomfort.

If you want to keep using the hooks the Sargent route would be a good one.

+2 on the PAIR system removal. Fantastic improvement.

BTW - the next meeting of the WT Modaholics will be held at MisterMike's house during the northeast BBQ get together. The meeting will open up with the introduction of our newest member, serge

I just sent money to semigray for the PAIR block-off plates. It takes so little push if you are an addict
