Another 1090RR on the road

Hi All

A couple of pics of what I believe was the last unregistered 1090RR in the UK
Bought it late last year before Euro 4 regs kicked in and made a few mods based on the forum comments and my experience of the 1078

Changes made;

  • Alcantara seat with Gel Insert from Viking Seats in Kent (not great in the wet but looks good)
  • Design Corse rear sets -able to drop foot pegs c 20mm which has made a big difference (Iím 6ft with 32 inch inseam)
  • Changed out the battery/starter/solenoid cables to a Motoelectric kit Ė probably didnít warrant it but had the issue of hot starting with the 1078
  • Rizoma Naked L mirrors . Have added a 25mm mirror arm extender which has made the world of difference. Will post a pic on the existing Rizoma mirror thread if anybody is interested
  • Evotech tail tidy
  • New Yuasa battery. Didnít bother checking the standard BS unit

Have done about 400 miles so far and enjoyed everyone to date

Thanks all. Seat has worked out pretty well . The gel insert is apparently what they use in the horse racing world. It helps Iím told keep the seat profile . Upped the security to just below armed guard so hope it stays in my possession longer than the 1078 did
