Looks much better, but I don't know that the pink string is on trend Ö

Crazy

Pink string is making a big come back Iím sure of it, a lot of quality bike builders are realising the true potential and versatility of pink string... wonít be long now and youíll be seeing it used on all of the BOM winners bikes

Dude where you at?  You decide on what to do with the headlight/fairing?

Man I had to fly out to work stuck in the mountains for another month.

Iím thinking headlight and nothing more, but I have just gone and ordered myself a Wiesco 823cc piston kit from Dynoman got some air filters for the CR 29 while I was there, so the should be waiting for me when I get home.

Iíll have to remove the cylinder head get it bored and honed, should probably replace the valve stem seals while itís all out also

A friend of mine here has done the same to his and recommended a guy in boronia to do the work to the head should be a few hundred.

May as well go all out now.

Has anyone else done this upgrade Iím interested to hear how much it changed the performance of the bike.

So I thought Iíd try to install the Morimoto led handlebar lights.

While I love the moto gadget gear I wasnít prepared to sell my kidney just yet to purchase it.

So my plan was to drill out the plastic stopper in the bar end and insert a rubber Gromit then run the electrical wire through the bar end.

Unfortunately what I didnít count on was the fact the plastic stopper was about half an inch thick

So I had to run with plan B, which was to install the electrical wires without the rubber.

I cut some string and ran it through the hole with the intention of using it to pull through the electrical wire. Being a little slow, I forgot to tie the other end off. So as I tied one end to the electrical wire i pulled the other end of the string back through the handle bar end.

That was the first time, as I attempted to pull the first one through the electrical wire slipped out of the string so I repeated the process until it was successfully through.

Then once I attempted to do the same with the right hand handlebar I realised the rubber tubing that was provided to wedge the handle bar end in was a larger external diameter , I searched the garage only to find one that was too small.

After a quick trip to the auto shop the guys they gave me some hose on the house I was pretty stoked. Then I finally completed the instal

I hooked up some power to see how she looks came up alright
