So I recommend you if you read a MUST BE USED advice: USE THEM
LOL! Sorry to hear that....hence if you had checked the output of the boxes, and it was less than 12v, U would have had the answer and would not need to proceed to the risky test.

At last!!
I have the 21” front wheel so we can start to build the front fender brackets and looking where relocates the horn. Next monday I hope to have the new metallic brake lines and start with the centre and side stands.
It looks great, I’m anxious to try it!!!

Friday I was in the manufacturer (Uni Racing) to collect the new decal kit for the ST. I asked for a vinyl to protect the windshield from scratches when I ride in the forest, this is the result:





Is the same material we use to make the side tank protections. Very strong.

They also develop some rim protections

I have the bike at the dealer and was at home without work (wife was busy!! ) So I've been doing some holes in the boring plastic cover on the right.
So far I've done one but I think I'll add another ....

I don't think so.
I need more range only once a year and could have less expensive provisional options.

Hey jaumev.

I was thinking to do the same to open hole to the right panel and make it to look just like the radiator panel.
But then i realize that maybe i will cause problem with the electronics of the ST that they are located under the right panel.
Is there any way to make them waterproof???

Hi omroizo, sorry I didn't see your post before.

In the interior of the grid I glued a plastic piece to close the hole, so it still "waterproof" like the OEM.
Is the same Yamaha does in the Worldcrosser version.

Couldn't you just get a grill sticker?

The modifications to fit the 21” front wheel are finished. It was a long work but the dealer make a very good job:
We use the OEM hubs to keep the ABS and TC that I love. I also like the low OEM front mudguard so we need to make some longer brackets to rise it.

Next step was a new brake line to avoid the one fixed on top to the mudguard. Now there is one to each front brake. Finally we decided to change the complete system, so all the lines are metallic now.











I had to take off the grid fixed under the front light. I like it a lot but with the new wheel there isn’t enough space when the front suspension is in full compression. Instead I fixed some aux lights that I’ve already had.





Next problem, the wheel doesn’t fit with the big ACD skid plate. They modify it but the wheel still touch in it in full compression, we need to work on it.
We enlarge the centre stand 4cm just cutting and welding. The side stand has an extension I can replace for the OEM end with a single screw.
We bend the centre stand to be closer to the bike. As I have the dual exhaust It could closer than with the OEM exhaust.





To balance the bike, there is a new enlarged suspension but it wasn’t enough so we need to have new links.
Now the bike is 3cm higher than the OEM. I’m not very tall so I had to modify the seat to reach properly the ground. The new shape and a non slide material on top also avoids slip forward as in the OEM seat.





I’m very pleased with all this mods. With the 21” wheel and the upgraded suspensions this bike is a beast. It has lost a bit of stability in highway at high speed but in slow windy roads it’s even better than before. Overall loss is minimal.
In off road is impressive, really agile and balanced. More technical is the track better it works, is really fun!!.
Also with the better ground clearance is difficult to hit the skid plate.
