Re: Miles To The Tank

I've never been able to get better than 44 mpg,but then I live in the mountains of North GA and do very little steady state riding.What's the purpose of drilling holes in the filler neck,to fill the tank higher?What kind of 2 litre bottle do you use?I had a 1999 VTR Superhawk for a while,they are ca...

Re: Heated Grip Question

I got the old bars off and am waiting for a length of self closing braided wire loom wrap to cover the control harnesses where the original shroud has dry rotted and exposed 1 1/2' of harness on one side and 1' on the other.Can't put it back together without fixing this,the bike is too nice to be le...

Re: Heated Grip Question

I've already removed the old grips and ordered new ones from Wunderlich.Any tips on swapping out handlebars?

Re: Heated Grip Question

Thanks for the info guys.I'll give a little more thought to whether I like the original style spiral grips or not,I do like the later model grips available from Wunderlich and I'll go with one or the other.At $40 it's kind of hard to beat.

Re: Heated Grip Question

I don't care for the standard grips or the price of the grips.What I'm asking is if you can remove the outer rubber grip from the sleeve and install aftermarket grips over the sleeve.

Heated Grip Question

On a Rockster with heated grips,can you install aftermarket grips over the existing tubes?I'm mounting R1150 standard bars and after getting over the cost of the bars I was shocked to find out what the stock grips cost.

Re: Rockster Handlebars-Sportego Handlebars from Wunderlich-HELP

Gary,did you take any side by side pics of the stock bars beside the Rizoma's,or do you have a pic of them on the bike?How do they feel compared to the stockers,how much rise and how much further back than the stock bars?
Thanks,

Mike
