Another little mod.


The fender bag wasn’t so good, but I will check out the link my mate Jim sent. Thanks Jim. Maybe a fender brace would do the trick. The next item on my list was a set of bar guards.

Basically they form a loop around the levers, so if you drop the bike the levers may survive. They also stop stray branches from whipping your hands as you blat past.

Fitting then was quite easy, but I had to lose the bar end weights. I rode the bike to work and it makes quite a difference without them. The vibrations are quite intrusive. I may have to put the weights back on, I’ll have to go for a longer ride and see……

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
