Thought that id introduce myself here as well as the welcome forum!
Im Chris, i live in Queensland, Australia and I own a Black 2009 Sprint ST 1050 which i have modified like mad since i bought it stock in mid 2011.
I am a long time lurker and thank you to many for the ideas that i have taken onboard in the mods and maintenance tips, they have proven invaluable.
Id like to share my list of work i have done and am in the process of doing to my strumpet, even if its is a little long winded, so before i do that, id like to say i hope to have time enough to join in on some conversations and perhaps add a little experience to the mix with the mods i have made, and am still making!
OK, first of all, this is my bike. I would put it in img tags but it may be a little big for some screens.
And this is the insane list:
Installed mods (as at 10/08/12):
-Osram Nightbreaker globes
-Ventura VP-190 headlight protector
-Zero gravity double bubble screen
-Radguard oil and radiator guard set
-Throttlemeister Throttle Lock - heavy set
-K&N air filter
-Staintune exhaust without baffles
-18T front sprocket
-PowerCommander-V and Autotune, dyno'ed to ~115rwhp (need to play with settings a little more yet)
-Uprated springs and valves in the stock forks and rear suspension (with a lowering link in the rear to counter for less spring compression under load)
-Luggage rack and Topbox with Backrest
-Corbin gunfighter and lady locking seat
Arrived mods, just need the time!:
-Clear indicator lenses
Mods i am waiting to arrive:
-Powerbronze Carbon Fibre (lookalike) Hugger
-Powerbronze Mudguard Extender
-MRA Touring Screen - Light Tint (will give me 3 screens to choose from)
-Oxford Heaterz Heated Motorcycle Handlebar Grips (not useful where i am, but planning a run to Tasmania run in some months, which is quite cold relatively speaking)
-MFW supergrip pegs with 50mm extension adjuster (for Mrs Messy's comfort on the pillion seat, im happy with stock on the front!)
-Bags-Connection tankring and 5L tank bag
-Denali D2D LED Driving Lights and Mounts
-Anodised black front brake cylinder
Next on the list:
-EBC HH pads and change rear rotor for something a tiny bit more grippy (rear brake has a bucketload of nothing when it gets hot - think the rotor is a little smooth or the pads glazed, not sure but want to increase braking performance a little in the process of sorting that out!)
