R1- Handlebar conversion kit?

R1- Handlebar conversion kit?

Evening all :smileee:


Seeking some information regarding conversion kits available for the R1 (04). And if anyone has converted clip ons to handlebars on their Own bike or know of anyone who has..


Reason for doing so is the forward lean is too much for my wrist/ hands leaving them go completly numb after only a few miles..

I understand the R1 lean is around 37degrees so would be looking to reduce a fair bit..

I love everything about the bike and miss the time not spent out on it so I’d rather try get suitable conversion kit than to sell/ trade for upright position bike..


Sites I have been searching are,

CNC Topyokes.com

Louis LSL

BikeBandit.com

srtfactory (most expensive)


So I’d probably be looking for high risers with somewhat straight handlebar or handlebars with the ends higher than mid bar..


If anyone has any ideas or thoughts :thumbsup2: :bikerie:

Lidl impct wrench

This week in Lidl they have two impact wrenches for not a whole lot of money. Im tempted especially after having to hire one recently.


electric impact wrench
https://www.lidl.ie/en/special-offer…rticleId=17489


cordless impact wrench
https://www.lidl.ie/en/special-offer…rticleId=17488


Has anyone got one of theses and are they worth buying?


Am very tempted by the cordless for practical reasons, I dont have a garage or shed so all work is done on the front drive. Easier not to be having extension cables all over the place

No cranking amps

Went to start the 916 yesterday and found the Motobatt battery had lost it’s amps. Had it on charge a couple of days prior to the start, plus twice over the course of the winter to keep it fresh. Hasn’t been cold either and the battery is new enough. I know a permanent float charge is better, but I’m still kinda pissed off. Reckon the original Yuasa was a damn sight more robust.

Anyone try to recover one of these batts?

Where do you get your electrical wires?

Where do you get your electrical wires?

Hello,


I just ordered a crimping tool/set with a crimping range of AWG22-16.

I need to buy typical motorcycle electrical cables in a few colors (say red, blue, black, yellow/green).

What’s the best place to get a meter or two of each color at a sane price?


Thank you.

Why is Nitromors gone so crap

This stuff used to work; paint would just bubble off anything.

Now it hardly scratches the surface even of cellulose.

CBF 600 – Installing a charger/heated grips?

CBF 600 – Installing a charger/heated grips?

Hi everyone,


I just ordered a USB charger for my 600SA (PC43) and I’m looking for instructions on how to install it.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01MSK7ZAV/


Heated grips installation instructions would do as well, I presume it’s the same thing essentially. I need it to get power when the ignition switch (red) is in the “run position” and the key is in the ignition position too. Can someone please point me to a web site or docs that explains it?


Thank you.
