Nearly finished, two days of modding
« on: October 26, 2018, 09:48:05 PM »
So, Sport SE in Racing Red (I know, I know)
Came with Puig levers, Evotec gaurds and heavy bar end weights.
None of the T Rex kit off my S1000r fit the XR so might get some axles sliders as a precaution.
Completed so far...
Givi hand gaurd extenders.
Heated jacket cable (most important for my winter riding)
Battery tender cable, which doubles up as my compressor power take of.
Puncture strings and tools stashed under seat (so much space!)
Givi rear rack adaptor
SW Motec engine bars
Wunderlich larger rear hugger
Pyramid from extender.
Tank ring and 4 ltr bag
ACF 50'd
To follow, Axle protectors, Tuturo chain oiler. Maybe Soupy kit if I've had too many near drops.
Just got to ride her now, out tomorrow if no ice in morning.

Hi Vince.  Do you know the model number for the givi topbox plate please.
I'm struggling to find the correct one and don't want to buy the wrong one.
PS What about a side stand  Bigfoot?

Not sure on sidestand thingy yet. I do feel I need to get a packer foot for it as it leans like drunken sailor on the standard setup even at one person set.

Thanks for that.  Much appreciated.
Yeah,  it does seem to lean a bit - not sure if I'm  worrying a bit unnecessarily but ordered one anyway.

Be interesting to see how much it helps with the lean,
I move my bikes about from the RH side with side stand down. I've only ever dropped a bike when it goes away from me and if it does that and I'm on the right with stand down I can let it back down on the stand. Also to fit in my garage it's parked against the LH wall stand side so I've got used to doing it. Today though I was on a coarse gravel car park and walked the bike back of some concrete onto gravel, always check stand is fully extended before leaning her back over but even then I thought, jeez when will it touch. Foe sure a fatter footprint would help in that situation but I'd like some packing to bring it more vertical as well.
I sit the stand on about 20mm of packer in my garage.

I haven't received it yet.  But bought it off a guy in Canada.  He got it for his lowered bike and it doesn't lean  enough.  So hopefully it'll do the job.
I've always had top heavy bikes. A Varadero for years  and a Crosstourer for 30k miles  and always felt a little bit happier with an extender. Managed to get away without dropping either - this is the first brand new one I've owned  so I can guarantee it'll go over - probably when I'm fitting the extender!!  :164:

Cheers.  I'm  modding it bit by bit. Won't really need the topbox till I take it on tour next year.  I just couldn't work out which one was the correct one
