First upgrade was a new secondary filter from multisurface motorcycling.
Being disappointed with the tag lighting, added this led tag
bracket from Radiantz.
Next on the list was tail light conversion and skid plate from
Jesse at Kientech.
Wow what a difference all this made.. It's a totally different motorcycle.
Installed the RSW racing
billet upper triple and it's a nice piece but it has
1. You will lose the ability to rubber mount your bars.
2. There are no provisions for blinkers. (Working on a retrofit bracket to solve this issue)
3. You must use their risers.
The factory switch is held in by two safety bolts. These bolts have a post in the center so you cannot use an ordinary Torx socket to get them out.
Fortunately for me I am friends with a machinist so I took him my Torx socket and he made the modification to fit. Beware, these factory bolts are in there
with red loctite.
As you can see here the new riser clamps have a wider bolt spacing which means the bracket from twisted throttle for the power plug will not transfer over.
Had a new bracket fabbed up. It's great to have friends who are machinists.
How to install Kuryakyn diode kit:
1. Remove fly screen to gain access to blinker indicator. The Vapor makes this easy, simply pull out the indicator.. you can see it at the top of the pic.
The two black relays in the lower part of the picture are the headlight relays from Eastern Beaver.
2.Clip the two wires going to the indicator and ensure you give yourself enough wire to work with.. you'll need to solder or crimp, I suggest soldering whenever possible.
Ground one side of the indicator, doesn't matter which side. The other side goes to the single blue wire on the diode kit. The remaining two wires going back into the harness to go the red wires of the diode kit. tape up, bolt up and done. If you have a load resistor, remove it now as it's no longer needed provided you've replaced your flasher with a digital (non-load dependent) flasher.
Before and after with load resistor installed.. it's the black module with numbers.
Got on the Warp 9 Kick. Brake Pedal, Billet plugs, Gear
