New member, new bike and some modifications already

I have put a thread in the New Members section, saying hello to the site, now I am saying hello to my fellow B4 owners.

I have recently purchased a 910R and I have to say I am so happy with the bike, I have come from a long line of Italian bikes, with a Harley thrown in and some builds of my own.


This is my bike as I purchased it....

I have been on the bike pretty constantly for the last 5 days and found that I am searching constantly for that elusive 7th gear LOL, so I have purchased a Healtech gear indicator to remind me that I am indeed in 6th.

I have also found like all of you that the standard pegs are slippery so have some new adjustable ones on order.

Today however I did put on a home made tail tidy (fender eliminator) and LED indicators. I bought a universal tail tidy, a set of simple LED indicators and an R&G tail light (£10).

I used the original mounting holes which only required me drilling one hole in the tail tidy and a couple of new holes to fit the light. I found of course that the LED indicators made the flash rate of the signals too fast for UK roads, so had a couple of inline LED resistors in my spare parts which fixed the issue, I only had to add the resistors to the rear signals to make it work.

All in all it cost me about £25 for all the parts, so a cheap but good modification.

congrats on your new bike. What (if any) has been done to the bike to adjust the fuel for that exhaust?

The exhaust was added by the previous owner who very intelligently also added a Microtec ECU.
