Great start! would love to see you write some tech tips in our tech tip section! 

Thanks! I already did on the electrical LED lights section.  I'll add another probably when I set the ACD racing skid plate (the Leo Vince headers don't work with the plate will have to cut and modify it) up and when I get around to installing all the Ohlins stuff.

I added the Rottweilerperformance Quick Flip Mirror mounts with the arrow kit.  I love the design and quality of these mirrors. They were designed for the stock KTM plastic handguards so it required some custom drilling and cutting to my Acerbis X factor aluminum bars.  I had to bust out my dremel and drill to get the fit perfect.  It wasn't difficult just required some extra work.  I have yet to ride with them, but tomorrow will be an on the road test.  After adding these it saved about 1 pound of weight.

I'm sure they will work with a little work.  The Barkbusters have aluminum guards and they should be able to bolt on.  Just measure twice and drill once.

UPDATE: Added ACD racing skid plate to work with Leo Vince headers.  

 

I purchased the @ACD Racing USA skid plate in the group buy and found out that they DON'T work with any aftermarket headers. So I went to the garage and started cutting and making my own version.  I purchased the Leo Vince headers and HP corse exhaust from @BellissiMoto along with the @2 Wheel DynoWorks ECU engine work. So I was all in with the headers.  Below are the mods I did to the ACD skid plate to make it work on my T7.  I had to move the holes a few millimeters and added an aluminum spacer from amazon (

)  

 

First, I removed about 2 inches of the top plate to clear the headers.  Second, I had to use these spacers to clear the headers on the front two holes.  Now there is plenty of room. It now clears the engine coolant lines and the headers by adding the spacers.

INSTALLATION SW MOTECH GEAR LEVER:

 

I found the stock gear shift lever didn't have much adjustment.  I come from the off-road world and like to have the lever just above the even platform of the pegs (personal preference).  I couldn't get comfortable standing off-road with the stock setup, so I caved and bought the SW motech gear lever ($150! ouch)  

 

I found that working on the T7 isn't as easy as most dirt bikes.  With the SW Motech you have to disassemble the entire foot peg and part of the frame. Which means you can't have the T7 on a center stand to complete the install.  Overall took about 1 hour after I figured out what height adjustment I preferred.  A few of the pictures show the extreme limits of the SW motech lever.  The SW motech lever has a TON of adjustment! and has a different length rod then stock (2 options is good).

Below is the rubber spacer that I have no clue what its function is. Stock it was on this bolt and I can't figure out what its for.  SW Motech instructions even show this rubber spacer in a different location...

INSTALLATION OF OHLINS REAR SHOCK:

 

I finally got around to installing the Ohlins rear shock and grease the rear suspension pivots.  Overall took about an hour.  The Ohlins shock weighed 8.36 lbs and the stock shock weighed 8.27 lbs. So a little weight gain but huge improvements with damping.  I will get an off-road ride in this week and test it out.

ASV levers and ODI CR high handlebars:

 

I just installed the new ASV C5 clutch and brake levers. These are high quality! Great feel, shorty options, and custom colors. My local shop GP sports in San Jose had them available. 

 

 

ASV_Inventions_Levers_Unbreakable_Foldin

ASV Inventions C5 Series Sport Clutch Lever

 

 

I've used these on previous moto's and been really happy. They work well with winter gloves and summer gloves. I'm really impressed with my clutch lever combined with the Camel adv 1-finger upgrades also. The combination feels as good as my hydraulic clutch on my Husky dirt bikes.

Amazing mods you are doing on the t7... Have you got the weight of the bike after all these mods?

@Aleksandar13 thanks! I'm digging your super moto T7 too. I haven't got the weight yet. My guess is 460 lbs with a full tank. I'm getting close to doing a "Part 2" youtube video on my channel (Ohlins shock, shift lever, brake and clutch lever, Camel 1-finger clutch and high fender kit, etc.)  I'll take it to a scale and get an actual weight on camera plus all my new mods.  Thanks for checkin it out!

This needs some updating 😉

 

So true! I have a couple new things i've added on. I just need to put it on a video and post it.  I've been commuting and working a ton, so I haven't been able to update here. I just went over 4k miles and will post a 1 year update soon! Sorry for the wait all

ANTIGRAVITY ATZ-10 BATTERY INSTALL: 

Finally got around to installing the lithium-ion battery. I've used these on my past 5 moto's and they have been flawless.  

 

Stock T7 battery: 6.90lbs (3.12 kgs)

Antigravity ATZ-10: 2.14lbs (0.97kgs)

 

Total weight savings of 4.76lbs (2.15kgs)!! 

 

I'm working on a poorly edited  1 year review  video with total weight and upgrades. Thanks for looking
