seems to have good accuracy
you have to ride more on bad roads in standup position LOL
Hi all, just checking in to say hello. I have bought one and it's ready next Wednesday. I chose the black one. I'm determined not to add mountains of farkles and keep the weight down. I will just add some engine bars as I will drop it. I had HEED ones on the AT and they seemed pretty tough, are they ok for the T7? I think I will run the standard can until I destroy it and they look at something a bit lighter. I don't want louder.
Cheers all, carry on.
You are correct about doing more bad roads and standing, my intentions for this bike is to do dead horse Alaska to Ushuaia Argentina this year, and if I haven't run out of money do Cape to Cape next year, so a ton of long straight roads in between, she ships to Vancouver at the end of the month
Ship it to my house. I will take care of it for you until you arrive.
Where is the sensor located? On my Fazer I have a similar display and the temperatures seem to be accurate, but the air temperature sensor is somewhere on the air intake, so it shows the external temperature before starting the engine and 5-10 degrees more when the engine is running on cold weather.
Not sure but probably somewhere on the head as it is a little optimistic after being in the sun, but reports correctly after about 5 minutes of riding
There she is..
Gina... One step closer to achieving the above is going to happen tomorrow... I will place the order for rims
The only difference to mine will be the exhaust.. I currently have this :
getting excited now... ️
Despite never having met you I'm a little excited, too.
Maybe I missed it if so sorry.. where are you ordering rims from? Just using the stock hubs? Would the MT07 rims work?
I have an FZ07 and love the motor. I explore tame dirt/gravel roads and the 17's have never been an issue.. I have had several bikes with 17's and combined with Shinko 705's fit my usage perfectly.. but ground clearance and suspension travel have been issues. I have had supermoto's that solved that problem but introduce the single-cylinder comfort issue.
So what you're doing is exactly what I want to do.. following with great interest.
Here is the setup that I'm getting :
Sm-pro rims: https://www.smpro.co.uk/services/wheel-building.html
and stainless spokes 17 x3.5 and 17x5.0.. Anodised black.
These are rims they sell for most supermoto conversions.
I'll take my wheels and send them to them and they will remove the hubs and use the original hubs with stainless spokes, put some tyres on there 120 70 17 and 160 60 17.
Providing all goes well I will have the rims and hubs with them on Tuesday next week.
They take about 10 working days to get back... So patience is needed..
This is why I've went this route as husky 701 was brilliant but the engine wasn't as nice as the cp2 and reliability issues have driven me away.
I think t7 SM is the best compromise out there.
Can anyone confirm that the crossbar behind the screen is around 12mm , 1/2”. Im making a bracket for the satnav and one for a ramball before the bike gets here next week.
12.0mm it's the size of the bar.. Not measures with a vernier
Thank you! Close enough, I have margin for error
What kick stand (or side stand) will you use? Is there one out of the Yamaha range which can be used?
Must admit I haven't thought about that yet..
How much shorter does it need to be to achieve the same angle as stock?
I might have to cu and weld at work if needed
