Re: Real world gas mileage

I've been tracking fuel mileage on the Fuelio app since I bought mine last year. I'm averaging 39.4 mpg (5.97 L/100km) over that time (as measured by actual ODO and gallons put in at each fillup, not readings off the bike). Avg mileage has dipped a bit since flash/slipon/Sprint filter late last year...

Re: Murph's bar riser update

First 3D printed riser received for fit check tomorrow morning. May take a couple rounds of tweaking...stay tuned.

Re: Hi, Einar from Concord , NC

Welcome to the site! I cannot recommend the Brocks slipon. It doesn't sound that good and is not compatible with hardbags if you plan on running them...and is rather pricey for what you get. My brother owns a older, lightly modded Busa. He finally rode my H2SX yesterdary with flash, Sprint P08F1-85 ...

Murph's bar riser update

Murph's bar risers are happening. I'm in the process of designing them now and he will manufacture. Preliminary is a ~1.4" rise, bars will rotate ~1.0" closer to the rider, and pushed slightly wider by ~0.4". These are not finalized. Those are preliminary dimensions needed for the front brake reserv...

Re: Handlebar Raisers?

I'm currently working with Murphs to get a Ninja 1000 like kit available. But it's not a simple solution for 2 reasons. Any bar rise over about 0.5" requires a longer brake line to be sourced. (this is short sighted by Kawasaki that they left almost zero play in the brake line) Any bar rise over abo...

Re: Fender Eliminator

Okay okay I gotcha. Now another dumb question, how do you remove the panniers now with the lights being that close? I've never actually taken my panniers off yet. Would you have to drop the license plate bracket to take the bags off? The pannier slide back like an inch, maybe a little more, when yo...

Re: Fender Eliminator

Has anyone bought this? I bought the Yoshimura fender eliminator kit and I actually didn't put it on because I didn't like it because it doesn't tuck in the plate any more than an inch compared to the stock one. This one in the picture looks like it tucks in underneath which is exactly what I want,...

Re: Panniers seem a bit rubbish

I can live with them. They don't leak water, they are keyed to my ignition, my helmets fit, you can pack a week or two of stuff (supplement with a rear seat bag and/or tank bag), certainly not a MONTH of stuff tho, I can go pick up some groceries with them, But the Givi are too fugly (for this bike)...

Re: Handlebar Raisers?

Well, I've re-engaged with Murph to see if we can get these risers done.

The person who was working with him dropped off the radar and that caused Murph to stop working on it.

I will keep people updated on progress.

Re: H2SXSE panniers and other accessories

Pannier and the one key system is very much a do it yourself project. Extremely easy to do. Here's how to do the entire process on a Ninja 1000, same as the H2SX install https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9neu1Y1wFEw The first accessory I install on all my bikes is a Powerlet socket to power gear, char...
