Prgrmerror's bike

I have been holding out posting my first impressions and will after a few rides. For now I need a place to post what my mods are and how they turned out. Within the first 2 minutes I realized my riding position would need work. Im 5,7Ē with a 30Ē inseam. The first mod will be the most important and expensive. I realized long ago to get to the point and not try multiple smaller mods. That only ends up being more expensive in the end and results arenít as good. So my first mod will be the Depretto forward controls. I didnít over pay for the bike so the $ spent on them keeps the bike cost in line with what some have paid. I will keep my mods on this thread, so once they arrive Iíll post results. Here is my starting point.

This would be a more suited place for your thread:

I can move it if you want?

Here is the first of a few mods. I needed a garage door opener. This is my solution

This is taking longer than I expected. I had to come up with a side bracket to add my swing arm bag. It would rest on the swing arm and cause damage to the bag without. I made it out of cardboard and took it to a fab shop to be made. I donít expect it for a week or 2 for the first fitting. In the mean time I have added a throttle lock and grip puppies.

Grip puppies just slip right over? Whats your opinion on them?

Yes they slip over. I sprayed soap water in them first. Not much. It makes them easy to install. I trimmed to size first and installed the cut end first. I like the larger grip. They do help with vibration and just feel more comfortable on longer rides.

Here are the depretto forward foot pegs. They change a lot about riding position. The unmentioned plus is being able to hang my feet over them to stretch out if needed. I added about 6mm of spacers to keep the shifter from contacting/rubbing the radiator hose when in motion. Look just above the kickstand. I used stainless steel washers and a longer bolt to compensate for them.

While moving the pegs forward is nice , it wasnít enough. I suspect many riders like to move around while riding. I also missed not having the original location. Hereís what I came up with. I havenít had the bike out yet to see what I think. They are cheap folding buddy pegs from amazon. All in 15 bucks. Iíll save my opinion for later once I can get a couple of rides in.
