Some cheap trial and error work on the buzzing right mirror at speeds.
Used a longer bolt, oem bar end weights and 2 big washers.







Extra wingspan....
This is a bloody great Bike....!

Thanks, Tyke but I loctited.

Rode back to work last night and happy to report left and right rear view are crsytal clear (even at speeds).  :002:

Also got some bad and good news.

Bad: While jacking the bike on the rear stand (this stand doesn't suit the V1K but to the V650) the right guide slipped from the bobbins. Result is my Scorpion is toast. A bad leaking crack on the carbon fiber. Now i remember why should have gone for titanium.  Anyway, think know someone here can wrap some new sheet around it.

Good: Got rid of the collector box with a pipe with a yoshimura at the end...

Will do, Tyke.

Kumar, the bikevis was more splice and place. Had wanted to make something similiar to my ex V650 but the V1K front didn't look the part. The LED strips used here was realible and no shorting out issue. The single small blue LED ones sold here don't last long.





Another LED running light option is to dim the LED spot lights (just came) with a reostat which could be brighten up to a spot/fog light. The ones ordered were from Rigid (http://www.rigidindustries.com/Dually-LED-Light-Flood-p/dually-fl.htm).

This is a bloody great Bike....!

The Rigid Duelly led flood lights


Understand it is the stainless steel RS-3 Yoshi. Left the insert in for now but it deep and throaty. Also notice for the same rpm, it shows a 5 km/hr speed increase. Think I have some better fuel efficient as did not need to stop at the usual petrol refill.


The replacement pipe for the collector box




It's not the new Yoshi with the tapered cone ends. Can is long which looks nice.

Yosh pipes are very well made, I'm sure there's a significant weight saving over the OEM item too
