Can you tell me how you wired your usb plug ? Direct to the battery? Thx

For this one I cut out the factory cigarette lighter style socket and wired the new USB/voltmeter to the stock plug. On the other side I’m probably going to wire in a powerlet socket direct to the battery to run heated gear and it will double as a charging port for winter storage.

Don't wire it direct, use a powerhub like this, if in Canada, thats a great site to buy off, I bought and used it to wire a Volt meter, AUX lights, spare SAE cable, and in the future Heated grips. Keeps electrics clean, fused, and organized, no chance of the battery being drained.

That’s actually a really good idea. Great for people who don't want to deal with using the factory plug system.

Got the Storm slip on fitted along with a few other smaller parts, still got the T7rally tail tidy to do and the factory mainstand but getting around to it slowly, seat time more important.

Fitted the rally seat to hopefully improve comfort & fitted the higher rated rear spring. It's very tall now. I'm 6' 3" and now on my tipy toes.

3 weeks old now. I'm trying to keep her as light as possible. NO crash bars or pannier racks for me, but I do have an aluminum rear rack on order and also an aluminum tail tidy on the way. So far most of what I've installed has replaced what I've removed. 

1. Front Supermoto fender (cut stocker back)

2. Cut down front fender bracket

3. Radiator guard (removed stocker)

4. Barkbusters (replaced stockers)

5. Heated grips

6. USB hub

7. LED blinkers (replaced stockers)

8. DIY tail tidy

9. 5mm FR spring spacers

10. RAM ball

11. Removed rear foot pegs/brackets

@BADDANDYYou need some plastic screws for those fork covers. See my "Pay it Forward" thread in "Parts For Sale" section of the Classifieds for details.

Adventure Spec rear rack. Simple, fairly priced, solid and surprisingly light. It fits well with my plans for the T7. I don’t want to betray its design features of being relatively light, slim and quiet. The AS rack is also Roto Pax compatible. I do not want to go down the massive aftermarket fuel tank road again. Offers a good hand hold for moving or picking up the bike. Will not be your cup of tea if you’re in the hard aluminum panniers camp, but if not it’s worth a look. Since I will have to wait over two months for the tank bag of my choice, this will accommodate a basic tail bag nicely to tide me over.

Looks great with the seat and the new spring... My seat height is 910mm with 17 inch wheels.. But I've also got stiffer springs on the front 😁

I was pleasantly surprised with my Adventure Spec order. Order was processed the same day it was placed and arrived the very next day from their Colorado Springs distributer. Complete with a handwritten “Thank You”. I have never had such a prompt delivery with any vendor. And just in case, no I’m not affiliated in any way, just a satisfied customer.

Installed the factory foam filter and pre filter from uni filter Australia.  They arrived quickly and came pre-oiled! I'll check on them in 500 miles.

Adjusted my rear brake lever as it sits too high for me (but having gone for a ride this evening i realised i have set it too low now, so readjust tomorrow,) then i sorted my tool kit...

IMG_9367.thumb.JPG.9d6a85f2206d721c1634da1f9f32ba64.JPG

 

and then i decided to ACF50 the seat..... and the arse of my textile riding trousers 😉 , the seat covering is so grippy it's a pain in the arse (literally) sliding from one side to the other to get a toe down (i'm short....but still old school, left foot down and right on rear brake when stationary, but when starting off from home or a garage etc  it's a slide over right toe down to get the stand up and first gear...but i still have to slide back over to move off - it's habit ie: left foot down right on the rear brake to move off, anyhooo it's necessary  for me so slide over the seat often. It  worked a treat - still grippy enough but allowed me to slide over the seat much easier - rather than sliding inside my trousers that were stuck to the seat which only upsets little jock and the twins. Then this evening i had a few hours around the Brecon Beacons running her in. First service booked for Friday and 120 miles to go to the 600.
