    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

    Not a Hima post at all, but I came across a deal on a barn find 1967 Triumph TR6R that I could not refuse. I mean, who doesn't like vintage Triumph twins? Supposed to pick it up later this week after the original 1967 title gets sorted out by the DMV.

    Does anyone have any vintage Triumph knowledge or advice? It has a dented fuel tank that will need a fresh paint job, the engine will be torn down, and the frame, new gaskets, seals, fluids. What have I done? :-)

    End of hijack.

    Looks good, trials uni on the back, and a barn, what could possibly go wrong?

    I'm going out to a local establishment this weekend. Haven't been there yet but it looks promising. Do some riding in the hills then sit around the campfire in the evening and have a craft beer. Would could be better. Come join us if you like. I will be there Saturday night. http://www.lillypadhopyardbrewery.com/ Good reviews from Google, and it's less then an hour away!

    Hello everyone!
    Will be taking delivery of my Himalayan in a month or so; bike is currently undergoing homologation. Hoping to learn more from this group! (:

    Man, I had to look up that definition: Homologation (from the verb homologate, meaning "to approve or confirm officially") is the process of certifying or approving a product to indicate that it meets regulatory standards and specifications, such as safety and technical requirements.
