    Thank you Leighb! Will keep eye out for front cam! Placed air horn as far up and back as possible! Bottom of the air horn is flush with the bottom of front cowling AND it doesn't rub against any cables! Well maybe 1! Lol .Think I'm good! Yeah I hear ya Leighb! Lost chrome trumpets on CBR1000F GONEZO! with one magical pothole! Alot of work! Should have started in November! Now basically waiting for painted parts. So stay tuned!

    No prob re fork compression as not located there. Well protected from the elements and road debris. Loud as a loud thingy of loudness! MoT complaint.

    Just a thought. Soz, no pictures just yet (though soon due to take nose off on another tweak. Will post then).


    Thank You Mallow1! MMmmm double airhorns... Would like to see that set up! Though I can imagine it. I may just move it there! BUT I think I'm good! For now... Also thinking of a dual fan system, with bypass of course...

    👍🏻 Your location for your horn looks very neat. Any concern re restricting airflow over the cooler behind it especially after installing your custom rad cover? I'm assuming your fan switch is only for the lower main water rad not the oil rad behind your horn.

    Liking your DIY mirror extenders too. I went one step further and in addition to my extenders added aspherical mirror glass (the type where the tips give a wider angle of view to help reduce/ eliminate blind spots).

    AThumbCut_181016-164126_1559814221859.png

    Found them on eBay specifically for our birds.

    Ignore the fact I've added heating elements and turn signals.

    Have a look at my dash project. The mini gear changer, replacement digital clock/ watch and TPMS may be of interest.

    CBR1100xx Dash Design v3_2_2_2_2_2_2_1559815517994.png

    The pic is my current design mock up (Photoshop) showing full illumination. In reality most extra lights/ switches will be dark when not in use (so looking more "stock").

    The clock is built (arduino project) and the mini gear display ready. Cruise control and voltmeter yet to be tackled.

    All other parts are bought and awaiting installation.

    In that you're a carb BB too fyi I added hazard light functionality via a Suzuki left gear switch which has exactly the same function and layout as my old BB (UK/ Euro version) one but with a factory fresh looking hazard switch.

    Food for thought... Daylight Running Lights (DRLs)

    These are the smoked lenses. They also do them in clear. Else if you're happy with your set up you can consider dual colour leds (I can't quite tell if yours are already)

    Big fan of your undertail/ brakelight/ Corbin Beetle mod.

    Fyi I found the Givi monorail perfect for mounting them with a Givi top box (sufficient clearance for the Bag lids to clear the top box, even my whopping E52)Screenshot_20190606-124242_1559822501709.png

    I too have spare Givi panniers for bigger loads. I've not needed to swap over yet so don't know how slick or not it'll be.

    I'd love to swap barrels out of the Corbins to Givi ones to be "monokey". Not googled for parts yet. Tried it yourself?

    Be careful with the Monokey rack mount. It has been known to cause head shake during decel if you release the bars. IE giving your back a bit of stretch.
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.
