What about Shock Sox? Much easier to install and easy to remove for cleaning.
Well...I guess I'm old-fashioned :)
I went for a ride today with the new Karoo 3. Pressure 1.6 bars front, 1.8 bars rear (with wife).
It's a different world , and a new bike
Done that years ago and on all my previous 4 Varadero's. Saves you from many front fork seal leaks!
Winter in Romania ...
So the AT decided to develop some issues two days before Christmas break and there went all the riding plans....
Tried to get some riding in on the trusty and reliable Vara. Not all to plan, and apart from getting it bogged on the beach a few times, she also needs some new foot pegs and mirrors. So that is why I got the AT again.... LOL
I was looking at those mirrors. Question: FOr adjustment do you need a tool? It looks like one needs an Allen key to be able to fold them in. I would much prefer a fastener I can adjust with my bare hands. How are they for vibration?
You only need a tool for the adjustment on the handlebars (brake pump/clutch bracket).
The folding is done by hand (adjustable friction with Allen bolt/nut).
Fine adjustment is done at the end of the arm (ball joint).
They don't vibrate at all.
New seat is on its way. Stay tuned :)
I recently installed these:
Since there is still a lot of snow here and the tempreatures are well below zero, I can only check them into the garage and they seem to cast a lot of light, dwarfing the original halogen bulbs.
But some say the light is not focused. Anyone had good/bad experiences with LEDs ? Keep in mind this is a Philips chip, with a very small emitter, just like the tungsten filament.
They are cheap for an reason; and you have to cut the dust / waterspray cap in to pieces allowing them to fit. I'll be adding my 'plug & play' LEDs as soon as the winter leaves the nation and have chosen for a slightly more expensive version from Bikedesign:
Actually, because the bulb is inserted into the flange (after you secure it in the headlight), you just fit the dust cap over the bulb and it's perfect. No modification at all. I'll take some photos these days.
Inside you can see the plastic flange, it'a perfect fit.

The Honda agent?
Retrieved Mighty White from its anual Spa treatement @ Mulders with a few upgrades; LED headlights and indicator DLRs I got, wiring for the TomTom Rider 450 fixed to the new mount, heavy duty battery installed, new chain & sprockets, new oil (Motul 300V), BMC airfilter (comparable to K&N) and finally mounted the jiffy extended foot I bought at VIM17 from the Portugese Varadero Club.
Ready to rock and next weekend with the Dutch Transalp club to Luxembourg and VIM20 in Andorra next month!
