Modifications to the bike:


Added 5 Gallon Fuel Cell (top of Givi Rack);  2 Givi E460 Side Cases;  HeliBars Handle bar risers; Hot Grips (heated hand grips); PIAA 910 Driving lights; Givi Windscreen; Scottoiler; Stage One Jet kit / K&N Filter; Corbin Saddle; Garmin GPS III+

The Hot Grips / PIAA's / Fuel Cell all are controlled with this moeller switches that are connected to 6 relays under the seat to handle current to put less stress on the switches. Each switch has a LED to indicate when its ON, the Top switch runs the Hot grips and have a 2 color LED, Green on low setting and Red on High.. middle switch is for the PIAA's when on the left side PIAA comes on and shines up the road to the right (so not to blind oncoming drivers) when the high beams are on the right PIAA comes on, this one shines off to the left...
The Third switch operates a electronic fuel valve switching between the front a rear tank..

The GPS III+ (mounted on handle bars) also works good to monitor the bikes electrical system as it has a data field for voltage.. this comes in handy since all accessories on will over power the alternator and start to run down the battery... (I also run a heated jacket)

Under the seat you find the 6 relays, a cig lighter adapter and the data cable to the GPS (just in case you want to hook in the laptop or cell phone :)


The Fuel valve, this fits nice in the big space under the fuel tank



and me with my bike.

I recently followed Mike Curry's tips on carb mods. After the installation of a K&N with no jetting the XX ran horribly, shim up the needles with a couple of #4 washers and it works great.

A tip:
If you use soft luggage for the odd trip and are worried about how easily the finish scratches on your bike, try buying a roll of the magnetic window tinting. It is cheap and available at any automotive store, cut a piece to fit your rear flank or tank and stick it on a clean bike. It will take all the abrasions of your luggage and road grime and can be peeled off instantly to produce a scratch free finish.

Modifications
  • Corbin Saddle bags painted Blue to match.
  • Ohlins rear shock.
  • Front forks - I changed the fork springs from stock 0.89kg/mm to race-tech springs with a rate of 1.0kg/mm and a length of 315mm.  I have also installed the race-tech gold valve kits for both compression and rebound.  The compression valving arrangement is c33 and the rebound valving arrangement is c19 (race-tech charts which come with the kits explain the "c" numbers).  The fork oil is 5w weight. 
  • Brakes - Replaced all stock pads with EBC - HH pads. 
  • Tires - Have used D205s (stock - they were ok), Metzler's ME-4A (worked fine) and will try D207s next. 
  • LP 1/2 tank bra. 
  • Re-greased all suspension pivot points (front & back); because I found there were poor lubricated. 
  • Future - Factory Pro shift kit 
  • Future - Throttlemeister.
