My TechBlack T7 in a bit different way

Recommended Posts

r2r

I chose a Tech Black version mainly because it's the best base for design changes.

So I bought this:

And a week later changed to this:

The project isn't finished yet, but this is everything I could have done by myself in my garage.

Did you raise the forks through the triple clamps to lower the front end?

Thank you guys 🙂

 

shaneygrog,  I raise the forks only to make my bike more maneuverable.  

It works perfectly, now I can  U turn on a  narrow tracks much, much easier.

Of course it lowered the front end a bit,  but fortunately not that much to make it unstable on the road.

OK r2r, that sounds good. How fast have you been though? It might affect high speed stability.

I found nothing disturbing to 170 km/h.  Did not check higher speed because I usually don't drive faster than 140-150 km/h.

That looks magnificent. I've ordered the ceramic ice (Blue) and do have intentions of changing mine with vynal.

Looks great, did you get the tank painted or wrapped?

It's wrapped. Usually there is a problem with wrapping a tank, because of its shape, but in T700 it's very easy.
