Hey Capt, Where are you picking up the Rizoma parts? I see EMA was trying to offer Rizoma here in the states but not anymore.....kingcapt said:Brothers & Sisters, let's try this again (the photos...):
[/B]First my goal:
To make quality mods that appear as OEM as possible to maintain the integrity of the design and to intergrate these "upgrades" seamlessly into the machine.[/B]
The Mirror conversion:
I ran stainless button cap-head screws to fill the OEM Mirror holes. I chose polished stainless over chrome (I checked out both as I have Chrome goodies lying around too). The polished stainless looks OEM, which was my desired outcome for all mods. I used a metric head to be consistent, thread was I believe 1/4-20, length was I believe 5/8" or 3/4". I used Nylock Stainless nuts.
Reservoirs:Rizoma, Mirrors, grips, bar-end caps too.
Throttle Cables: MTS1000DS, Dual Push/Pull set-up
Your solution to attaching the headlight fairing support looks clean but I am concerned that now all the stresses associated with this attachment are focused holes in the plastic fairing and not distributed as in the OEM setup. I have seen aftermarket "plates" that attach to where the OEM mirrors attached but I can't find them anywhere.....
