    So aproxapproxim 34.5" seat height now with a nice narrow nose. That's perfect and probably the better height for most. My DR was 35" and I have a 29" inseam. Worked great. My WRR is 36" and I notice the extra inch.

    This seat height will provide some great knee bend comfort for the long haul.

    Anyone going to update their rear seat section too? I ride with my daughter.

    That's right. Personally, it's not a bad idea to spend money on exhaust, after all a little sound that gets the attention is not bad at all, but at the expense of gas mileage and the exhaust note which irritates post 20 mins into the ride. I am no tuner tom, but the experience with a slip on has been good so far at least with respect to linear power delivery. Any gains experienced from the exhaust w.r.t. HP bump, zilch. But has the bike able to rev more freely and get to the meat of the band easier, a definite yes.

    I alway say, do what suits you best.

    Cheers!

    Same. My dealer said mine was the first bike they've had that needed adjustments at first service, but I've heard of a few others from here and the FB group since.

    My thought as well,


    Try checking your air filter, the crank case pressure at those speeds can draw in oil.... something I was warned about by my dealer. I usually cruise at around 60mph and the I have never had to top off oil, I have over 3000 miles now.

    Bought the Grunt V3 from Greasehouse in India. (I belive it's called Indimotard). Chatted to them over their FB page, they responded, invoiced me via PayPal and shipped real fast.

    Other than requiring a little bit of copper grease under the gasket (some air was coming through the gasket seal) it fit fine, is much lighter than stock and sounds great. Louder, but not stupidly loud. Also it does not stain like the stock. That just got eww brown after a week.

    To whom it may concern, this is a DIY ABS fuse switch solution, basically a 15$ radioshack option. A hole drilled into the fuse case cover, a lead running out to an external fuse, added a switch on the bars with a cable tie, a water cover and some silicone sealer. Very basic, works like a charm. Can now switch on/off ABS (Euro model) without killing ignition. Pics below.

    True indeed, the brownish staining that the stock muffler is prone to is completely gone with a slip-on, courtesy, the high grade steel used. You'd have mild leak near the pipe/muffler meet point, but that shouldn't be a cause of concern, as it's very minimal. One thing of caution is make sure the exhaust mount point on the rearset is torqued well. The bolts they provide is of not a lengthy one and it's a tight fit.

    Would be interested to know where the leads of the wire that goes into the fuse box are affixed to in the fuse box, which fuse and how? Was it a direct blade fuse tap connector that was used in tandem with an additional inline fuse and switch setup? Photos of the wire ends that go inside the fuse box would be helpful, if possible.

    Cheers!

    Nice. Easy enough much cheaper than the Blue OX fuse bypass switch option. Those are stupid expensive for the materials involved.

    Glad to hear this works!

    I put the re options exhaust on mine in the early daze sic. I think that a thumper needs to thump ! ! !

    Not sure if they still are available...

    My neighbors like it, but I don't shit in my own nest by abusing the throttle in my street, I can't really comment on power etc. as it was fitted during the running in period, but it sounds nice, and doesn't bother me noise wise :-)

    There's nothing odd about OEM shock; it is not a progressive but dual rate spring. Dual rate springs are set up to work at balance point so they are essentially one rate when suspension compresses and another (lower) when it expands. The benefits of lower rate spring on expansion that the force with which wheel press down is falling at lower rate so wheel better stays in contact as it falls into pothole.

    Via terria trailpack for the royal Enfield himalayan front frame is worth the price of admission. The fit is perfect the construction and the fabric is first class the ykk zippers and pulls are of quality materials I will re spray water repellent just to be suere. The capacity is quite large for its size I am quite pleased that I ordered these direct from the company . 20180925_112952.jpg
