I'll be putting a jet kit in, opening up the air box and hopefully getting some new exhaust this winter.

You guys keep talking about drilling the slide? Any pictures or write ups anywhere?

On DRriders, i asked that same question, all the replies were favorable, with one guy almost staying with a Duc monster 800, only a couple of bike lengths behind, as i recall. When i get some money and time that will be my next mod.

It looked a little strange, and because it was so big, it actually moved around a bit in the wind, causing massive buffeting. I wound up just taking it off entirely, and I just live with the wind blast at speed. Because the air is much smoother flowing now, it's actually less tiring than the windscreen was. If you're committed to putting a windscreen on yours, get a small one.
I've got the Britannia Composites Lynx it stops at least 90 percent of the blast, and the Hella lights are worth the whole fairing in themselves, one great product, I recommend it. Corbin seats are like sitting on a brick, plus the fiberglass seat pan is very heavy.

The DR BST has two holes in the slide, one for the needle another for air. Drilling the slide adds a second hole for air, making the slide 'jump up-n-down' faster. This pic is for a KTM, ignore the 'Drill these 2 holes to 0.125'.

i've got a MCS procircuit quick action throttle sitting here and i'm wondering if anyone can think of a reason not to run it.
it's a single cable rig, the cheap plastic style MX one and i'm hoping it will work well.
i can buy one of the 15% quicker tubes from procycle but this is only $30 and i have it already instead of $60+shipped from the states to Australia.

Thoughts?

The DR horn is now working again, albeit sounding more roadunnerish than before.

The problem seemed when I move the horn with the original Safari tank install, it didn't like its new postilion and in fact, as Jeff at Procycle suggested, had to re tune it! It will suffice until I can get one from the wreckers.

Getting the Safari tank back on was the marathon of the day. The alignment with the brackets seems to change every time I take it off and back on again. I seem to be coming up with new techniques to get the bloody thing back on.

I may start a "how to put the safari tank back on hints and tips thread page"..............is there one out there already.

anyway, thanks for all the feedback (again)

I found mounting and remounting my Safari tank a challenge also. Increasing the hole size and elongating in the bottom mount brace made the job easy.

When I remove my Safari I also remove the front brace and bolt it to the tank while it is off the bike.

So, does anyone here have a 790 or 780 kit installed?
