so it sounds like there is probably nothing wrong as such with mine,like i say rear on stands with wheel spinning slowly it stops it immediately,maybe because mines not been used the pads might need roughing up or i may ride while keeping a bit of pressure on it for a mile or two to see if it starts biting a bit better
cheers

yea it will always stop quick on stands 100+bhp or 160mph is trying to make it keep going, but why do you want the rear to stop quick?

I've currently got stainless braided goodridge rear line, ferodo rear brake pads and galfer wavy rear disc on this bike, i do use my rear alot more than most though, but its because im an all weather rider so im feathering the rear to change rear wheel speed in bad weather so it doesn't slide out under power

here's the pic of colored Michelin writing on tyre but i waited too long and it's a bit dark lmao...at least i recently did the 1000mile chain clean so that doesn't look as grubby as it did, also checked chain slack same time (americans, excuse the tax disc hanging off the left passenger peg area, sorry about that) wondering if I should even put rim tape on now or that white michelin writing brings enough white onto the wheels as it is

Or do what i did. Use Dupli-colors Hi-Build Fleet Coating spray paint. Cost like $15 a can here, but it does the job really well. I did it to my rearsets last year and they are still in tact. Also using a primer for metal so the paint sticks well to the metal. Just my 2 cents.

I've felt ASV levers a honda dealer now closed had one out, they do feel solid and nice pull can't wait, first time buying an ASV product I know they're good though, i was actually looking at the exact same bike and colors at a triumph dealer that ASV's on and 1 lady owner(big chicken strips haha) but the deal breaker was 500 extra on the price, despite same condition same bike

Yea the official rim tape for this year/bike was white it was genuine honda rim tape I was gonna get:

08F84-MFJ-810A

It's only like 30...

Also was wanting genuine carbon fuel cap cover, carbon clock surround, carbon rear fender, carbon keybridge cover, not sure about front though as it'd remove the red unless i got it painted over

Up to you man :) yeah i want a few more cf parts as well, you prob already saw this bike, its Ryan's (Ry6rr) Red oem Honda stripes. Not the same Tri color as yours but looks good w the red, keep in mind if you use white tape it might show dirt more? or not?

Yea I've seen his fancy newer bike already haha...he needs to send me his paychecks, maybe somebody can photoshop white and red rim tape onto my bike and we'll see as both colors are on the bike I cant see either looking bad.

As for white I've had an all white bike before(top to bottom) its usually easier to see dust etc on black bikes, I didn't have trouble keeping the white one clean, I clean my bikes once a week anyway regardless if dirt or not

White leathers though you keep leathers for years if they're good so i'd prefer not all white leathers they seem to get dust and a bit less usual to clean, especially when perforated i cant do what i do to my bike to clean them

Well I went riding today, unfortunately I'm breaking in new knox handroid gloves at the same time so feel isn't as easy right now, but straight away the lever seems a good size, very quick compared to stock im glad i got the long one, even that is still slightly shorter than stock:

technically im not saying that but riding street daily...i prefer to grab a handful, it's what i've always been taught in advanced road riding, and legally wise in the uk...short levers shouldnt be an MOT pass i don't think but alot of them pass them anyway(if you have small hands and can fit your whole hand on why shouldnt it be a pass i suppose) and don't care my only gripe on such good levers is for the clutch anyway it doesn't seem to be able to come any CLOSER to the handlebar...it obviously goes further away which gives you a sh!t load more adjustability than the stock one which doesnt move at all(clutch) but yea...could've been able to come in more too as it's slightly taller

what you cant see underneath is a seperate bit you have to screw on which pushes the neutral switch in which tells the bike whether you have the clutch in or out, but it's two allen screws very simple and they recommend threadlocking them which i did

Here's a better comparison than I could describe:

Not had a pic up of the nano indicators so here they are, had to cover the plate not to hide it but the camera flash kept focusing on the reflective plate so it would flash on that and black everything else out:

yea thats the UK legal size...I'm thinking about getting one an inch shorter and an inch less wide, nobody would notice that

It's about the performance of the bike not the size of its....lol ;) i ride everyday i just don't want to ever get picked up on it but i saw a guy caught on a cop show on tv...had a 1 liner plate on an R6 and they didnt even clock onto that so not even the cops know the licence plate regs...i can quite easily plead ignorance if they dont even know!

No I havent got the money spare..maybe tomorrow I can order another relay, I did however swap out my R&G spools for R&G cotton reels

what I didnt get though is the spools never had a spacer, but the cotton reels do have one so i called them and said is it maybe for a different bike but not the RR8 but he went and asked somebody and says the spacer goes on the left side??



That's with the spacer currently on, usually when they have extra bits and it's obvious why something is there...with these I have no idea why they have a spacer with it...

Wait, tis post is got me all confused. Firstly, I can't see the pic because I'm at work. I am going to order a standard cotton reel for my right side and an offset one for my left side because the ounting point has been crash damaged. So please elaborate on the spacers again.

The white would look pretty good on yours.

Probably black It is a US bike

I can check if you let me know your exact color scheme...maybe we have something similar

08F84-MFJ-810A is white for 2007 uk models, that won't be bad on black
08F84-MFJ-820A is red for 2007 uk models, that won't be bad either
08F84-MFJ-830A i have no idea...lol...might be green

basically both cotton reels look exactly the same and the swingarm is flat both sides but there was a spacer included...so i called and they said the spacer goes on the left side so thats where I put it...i still don't know why there is a spacer

here's the latest pictures of my bike I took recently:

bikes looking sharp bret, liking the mascot lol. I know its only the stock pipe & you're planning on changing it but a bit of autosol on that mid-pipe would bring back the shine (if you're bothered that is lol)
