As for me, I've put on some new silencers (Lossa Engineering Reverse Cones), uploaded a new map, and balanced the throttle bodies. All hail TuneECU! Looking for an elegant solution to stop the center stand from banging the left silencer.

When I finished these mods and went to go take it for a spin, I noticed a nice screw in the rear tire :'( Going to plug it until the new tires arrive, but I'm a little sketched out since it's a little off the center of the tread. In any case I'm using this to replace the front as well, which I had been putting off.

Check this out mate....

New Tec gas shocks and progressive front springs for the t100.
Good youtube vid by delboy walks you through it so easy as pie. The vid is actually from Tecs early years and they have made improvements that basically make it a half hour job for the shocks and a half hour for the springs.
Rides like a new bike.
Have 1 inch up and 1 inch back Motone risers so did not even need to remove the bars to swap out the springs.
Off to the bar then!
Love it when a plan comes together!
Road trip to Phuket in the very near future I believe.

Had to wait for it and polish it with T cut when it arrived but it fits spot on... just had to drill the rivets out of the old guards...

Yesterday. As it will soon be 5 years old I took it along for it's 3rd MOT test. This is the equal longest that I have ever ran a road bike for. The other bike was a 916 from 1996 to 2000 (inclusive).

Is it possible to install these without having a lift or a stand for the bike?

I put TEC shocks on mine without using a stand mate. Just do it one at a time. If you are changing ride height you may have to pop rags or something between the tyre and the bike to prop it up... honestly itís a piece of cake..

Yes but a center stand makes life so much easier.
Do the back shocks one at a time and should not be a problem but the front springs will be a bear unless you can unweight the front end and reduce the pressure on the springs. You can use a car trolley jack to get the back end off the ground and I am sure you can do the same with the front as long as you can secure the bike in a vertical position. Do you have any idiot friends who will do menial tasks for beer?
One last warning, when you do the front springs do them completely one side at a time or else very inconvenient things will happen.

Well today we reduced main jets to 140 and up jetted the pilots all to good effect. Then popped DID and JT chain and sprockets dropping the front sprocket to 18 from 19... and went around the whole bike with my (newly returned) torque wrenches..

Check out the state of the sprockets.. these are a cheap Regina set that the previous owner had fitted; now with seized links and hooked sprockets. Considering how low the power out put is these havenít done very well...


Lovely new C&S


Also cleaned out the fuel filter (hanging) then test rode her..

After she was nice and hot she got a balance..



Lovely old day!

Installed BellaCorse's high rise bars (newer version). Very comfy. Nice fall weather this weekend for a ride.
Apologies if these pictures take up the whole page..
