    Finally had my SMD orange globes rock up for postie (china chrome holders had clear globes and couldnt find globes with galss small enough to fit), had to replace flasher unit with before so went with those ones ready for LED globes. Install globes, indicators are all whack. Now to wait on a set of resistors to arrive from china lol

    Ghetto muffler mods



    toooo



    Extremely rough/impulsive after a couple of beers. Welded up and threw it back on, maybe a tad too loud but at idle it is sweet. Will grab some high temp paint tomorrow to repaint muffler to go back on when I get back from work.

    Second postie bike tomorrow hopefully. Thinking along the lines of a full yellow respray, knobbly tyres, 140cc clutched manual and an additional fuel tank so it has some range.

    Something like...

    The Pani has been at ProTwin for a couple of weeks now, minor service, had the full termi system and wheels stripped off, ceramic coated the full system satin black, and got the rims blasted and coated black. Didn't like the red rim tape that was in the paint, so got rid of it.

    Will post some photos soon

    Side note, i really don't like the antenna mirrors. I'm super keen to get some led indicator mirror blockoff plates and some bar end mirrors, but not sure of how functional they are. Anyone have any experience/opinions? I do mostly hill runs but the odd commute.

    Something along the lines of this.

    Had bar ends on a couple of my Triumphs, no dramas. Can suffer a bit from vibrations but you can still make out if a car is in your blind spot easy.



    I'd be more worried about the indicators and whether people can see them easily.

    really like those block off plates with indicators. but like you unsure whether the bar-end mirrors will be any good.

    when you buy some let me know haha :P

    Had a minor whoopsie on the street fighter, so used it as an opportunity for tweaks as you do. Picked up a genuine Ducati performance tail section super cheap on eBay and also got a black genuine headlight. Was all red before. Actually think it's worked out ok.

    Re bar end mirrors have those exact crg arrows and they are tops. One of the best looking imho and very functional.

    Thanks mate, SF looks tops.

    Can you flick those mirrors up before splitting? Also, how hard are they to remove? That, with the LED indicators being plug and play, is making my choice alot easier.

    ^^^^ The mirrors are very easy to flick up. The arm "clicks" through a number of positions (kind of straight out, 45 deg and straight up) and the mirror is on a ball mount so heaps of adjustment there. To mount them you will probabaly need to fit new bar ends as I have found the stock ones no good. Steve at Rated R parts does some nice black ones at a good price. They need minor tweaks to fit but are the ideal diameter for the mirrors to bolt on. 2 min job to bolt them on and off. (one cap head bolt)
