New 4Rt Mods

Recommended Posts

Its rare you cant find something to lean the bike on so I've never felt the need for a stand. On the rare occasions I couldn't find something then I'd tell Ralphy to hold the bike whilst I took a p*** and walked the section instead, worked for the past 20 odd years.

Odd isn't it? 1st gear for nearly everything, I usually gauge a gear by speed needed on gerty rather than anything else.

That odd i seldom use it.More at home with 2nd & 3rd my self. Think it's lack of skill or a mental thing as when i use first ,i always seem to fook whatever i'm tackling up .

Couldn't agree more on your word's.

Jitsie air filter and remove the flame guard. Order a set of Michelins and swap over as soon as you get it so you can sell the Dunlops. Most of us swap the front sprocket for a 9 tooth as the 10 is too tall. Thankfully I'm not into bling so mines pretty much standard apart from the above.

Addict , what flame guard ? where is it ?

Tell me more please.

The wire mesh part that fits over the OEM air filter foam. It's P.N. 17213-NN4-000, named "TRAP COMP., FLAME".

Jitsie and Twin Air filters have a coarse, hard mesh on the clean-air side that (I believe) is an integrated flame guard.

You know that feeling when you leave the house and think "did I lock the door"? you know 99% in your head that you have but there's just that nagging 1% that thinks maybe this time you forgot. Well I've got to give the air filter a clean on Gerty this afternoon and make sure there's no dirt in the airbox - they are the same things.

This is what the Jitsie filter looks like in the airbox, no flame guard needed.10169181_10152425306572185_1583105679876

I did the lock the door by the way, clean as always even though it was a mudfest last Sunday.

Mods to my '14 standard;

'Must haves':

- Bigger pegs

- Lower gearing. Makes 2nd gear a gem, whereas with 1st I spin it too easily.

- Replace stand as OEM stand is too up right and bike falls over when looked at.

- Home made strap across mudguard for picking up/loading bike places.

- Bigger pegs

'Useful to haves':

- Short levers - personal preference, lanyard kill switch, new bars

- VMar snail cams for more adjustment postions.

The new rear mudguards are more rigid than the '05 - '13 models, so they tend to tear through the mounting holes where the guard screws into the airbox. I've plastic welded the supports and the guard can still tear away. Last weekend I saw a different approach, cut an inverted "V" so that the guard actually comes away from the bike easier - and without tearing.
