Expensive Equation







MINUS





PLUS





EQUALS









...and an empty wallet.








Just wanted to introduce myself. I've been lurking for a few months since I got the R nine T and it has cost me! There is so much information here. You guys help put the "dispose" in disposable income, but I love the bike. It really takes me back to what motorcycling was in the beginning for me. It's just fun. I love personalizing it in the garage almost as much as riding.





I've got a couple more things to do and then I'll do a photo posting of everything I've plagiarized so others can get rid of their bothersome cash surplus as well.




Thanks for all the help Forum!

Probably the best introductory post I've ever seen!!! Your bike looks great!

Waiting forward to seeing more photos as your wallet gets even lighter...

welcome @Motodaveo yes mate, at least 50% of the fun with this bike is pulling it to pieces and putting it back together again. I blame it on Meccano set when I was little, lol.

Nice to have you here @Motodaveo. Lovely bike you have there, and excellent first post.

I was in two minds whether or not to move this thread to the Introductions section, but it is also a general modification thread too. I'll leave it where you put it mate, as it would be cool if you could keep us up-to-speed with any new modifications by adding to this thread.

Welcome once again and I look forward to your contributions.

Today I'll be mostly riding.....

Thanks guys. much appreciated.

joe - The bar end Mirrors are Oberons. rock solid view behind, there are no vibrations. They're small but so clear it works fine.

Very nice.


IMO, though the two most important mods are missing:
Headers made the biggest difference to me in opening up the engine and letting it rev freely
Suspension. I waited on that one because of the cost involved but it is inevitable that will come.


Did I say two? I meant three. Seat. You will no be very aware of the limitations of the stock seat.
