    Re: First upgrades!

    Where did you purchase the smoked marker lights with LED bulbs? Are you pleased with those?

    Re: First upgrades!

    All the lights i changed on the bike iíve bought them on aliexress. Iím very happy with my new lights. The only thing i have to buy yet is an led blinker relais because now they blink too fast. But i love it so far!

    Last week iíve also did my backside with new blinkers and an led back / break light.

    Pics will be uploaded wheni have some time to make them.

    Just in case you get itchy wallet BTW, I saw another BB at a recent bike event and noticed his bars were looking quite tatty. It was something I replaced on mine and was fairly cheap.

    Re: First upgrades!

    Those are very nice. Maybe Iíll get some of those!

    (Not that i have to defend myself but)!
    I just wanted to try some things but not want to break my bank. Just yet. If i have to buy new lights or screen i think that i will buy ďexpensiveĒ stuff to replace the cheap ďshitĒ i have now on my BB.

    Re: First upgrades!

    Just routine oil changes every 6000 miles. I run a full synthetic blend since I got it at 18,000 miles. Service the K&N filter at the same time. I commute 200 miles a week on it and do local road trips here most weekends. Weather here is good year round to ride and the misses loves making trips up onto the rim and local favorite spots out of the valley.

    Re: First upgrades!

    When you change out your rear sprocket replace it with one of these and keep it oiled. I use a Pro Oiler.

    Here is a pic of mine after 100,000 miles it was only changed because the new rear wheel used a different drive hub.
