What did you do to your RC today?

I removed the tail, installed a pig-tail for a battery tender, and replaced the stock rear pegs with Sato Ti hangers.

I also Stomp-Gripped the tank...The generic sport bike Stomp-Grip cut is cheaper than the custom-cut ones, and if you install the R side upside down on the L side of the tank, and vice versa, it is practically a perfect fit...One straight slice with the X-acto to remove one row of maybe 8 nubs per side, and it's pretty much spot-on.



So, what did you do to your RC today...?

I completely tore down my clutch master and slave cylinders. Does that count?

...and not a moment too soon, by the looks of it. NICE sludge you got in there.

Of course it counts, you answered the question AND it makes me want to go check a few of my other bikes now, ugh!

I know! I'm gonna overhaul my brake system after the clutch is done and running right. I'm afraid it may look like the clutch cylinders...

Can you post a pic of that stomp-grip? interested to see what it looks like.

I will tonight...It doesn't look as good as the bare tank, I assure you, but it works great. Function over form for me on that.

You would have...But the Russian judge disqualified you because it wasn't technically "today", and there was also some concern that you may still need to flush and replace the air in your tires.

Sounds like a TON of work...Enjoy the new bullet!

Did a little fitting mockup for the Samco hoses while I'm waiting for the Turn-One carbon-fiber air scoops to arrive.
Plus ordering other parts.
