Stripped off the plastics ready for a good coat of look-over and a deep clean. She's a bit mucky underneath!

That is brilliant. I wish i had seen this before i bought bark busters!

Hey Jimmy, I did not want to post my temporary OEM seat fix on the SC thread.


If you want to soften the OEM seat . . . Cut the seat pan to allow the firm foam to sink into the seat pan a bit.  
It works better than expected.  I still want a 1pc SC Rally low seat . . . if it is not narrower than the stock seat.

you can start with a 1.5” - 2” cut.  It relieves pressure on the tail bone.

Happy new year from Barcelona!

 

So I keep the original hand guards.

This looks good. I like the idea of being able to keep original parts if possible. 

 

How did the installation go? 

 

How does the quality seem?

I am onto this, brilliant idea. Mine only needs to be a little bit better. I was going to add a gel pad, but i have reservations about actual comfort improvement, heat and durability.

A soft foam pad under the the stock firm foam works too.  I did this on my MT-07 to raise the seat for more leg room.

it maintains the OEM seat shape.  I used a soft exercise foam pad (wife’s yoga pad) . . . 
 

You could cut a section of the OEM foam out from the bottom side to place a soft gel pad.

You can remove the two rubber bumpers to drop the seat a bit to offset a pad under the seat foam

During these days of incessant rain, I took the opportunity to do some jobs on the bike.

The following is performed:

Very easy!

No need to disassemble the originals to put them, you have to open the angle a little to make the curve bigger and that fits perfectly inside the handguard. The quality is apparently good to protect the originals in a normal fall and that they do not break, I suppose that the alloy in one type Barkbusters will be better in terms of resistance to a great impact.

 

Replace the screws for better ones,  are really bad. 

 

I mount them thanks to this video.

I'll be honest; There's not a lot of things I've put on the OEM exhaust that haven't... melted.

Installed these today. Makes chain maintenance and winter storage a lot easier. The spools will be unbolted when I’m riding so they don’t snap off when I tip over.

Giving myself a couple options for caring extra fuel, rear plate or side mount. Either only takes about 5 minutes to setup

Stripped it down even further and treated the inside of the frame with wax. Some portions of the tank and outside of the bike got a coating with  ACF50. 

 

20201231_170758.thumb.jpg.2736300f5dc5bbfbbcf6f79d7c6b41b9.jpg

 

Then I installed a set of engine crash bars.

 

20201231_170808.thumb.jpg.a826c8650ec32e2a2663b7022ca59196.jpg

 

And some Touratech goodies for the water pump and brake pedal.

 

20201231_170817.thumb.jpg.e86f1ad6632f4026ecb6cd239bb3e314.jpg

 

And a happy new year everybody. 

In hindsight are you happy with and would you recommend the Touratech water pump cover ?? or go with something different ??

In terms of quality it's great. I can't tell you much about its effectiveness yet though because I haven't ridden the bike since.
