Hello! As u know, I modifying my Yamaha, and today I bought some new toys :> Need to make by myself brackets for headlight and turn signals. BTW I made comparison with original parts. What do you think?

Check my garage if u want more info.

Good mods. It is always satisfying to be out in the garage fiddling on the bike, whether "necessary" or not.

Could you show a detail photo of the side panels? I failed wrapping them because of the big holes..

X689 sorry for the delay on answering. You must know it's impossible to wrap this nice alone, you need someone to help you with that. You need to heat foil very carefuly and push it very hard inside holes, then cut foil very close to the edge. Here some photos how its look. Good luck with wrapping /forum/images/smilies/smile.gif Hope all goes well this time.

Hair blow dryer can heat the wrap and allow easy flex, stretch, and shrink as needed. Used one putting graphics on my helmet.

Thanks, I'm currently making similar setup at the back and noticed that OEM Single seat is way to long to fit w/o fender.

Hi

I love the tires. Are they Continental TKC80 ? They have a lower speed index than the one recommended by Yamaha but the "magical" index M+S (mud /snow) saves us (in France, I don't know the laws of all countries). The recommended index is V (240 kmh-149mph ! ) in which country is it allowed to drive at this speed ? The bike is not even able to ride at this speed.

Good tires but they quickly get noisy . They are original equipment on KTM 1200 ( on road, you have to be gentle with the gas handle, for sure)

Very nice look ! And good job

I like your handlebar too. There are no risers ? Can you turn the handlebar to the max ?

Bellvill thanks! That's right, its TKC80 tires. The handlebar is renthal 822 (KTM LOW), its without risers, yes i can turn to max, but this handlebar is so wide and low that i have to put the throttle cable through the lamp holder (gas was jamming) what is impossible (i think so) if u have original headlight, i have no problems with that because i got Koso Thunderbolt headlight. Also u must remember about holes on handlebar for left and right switch. Better buy handlebar for xsr900, its lower than xsr700, and its plug&play.
