Purchased weester Sept. 2015 with 3700 miles in it. Replaced the stock windscreen with a Madstad & mount. After several test miles I needed some upgrades so we went shopping. Ergo's are: tried 2 & 3" risers didn't like them so modified a set of Heli bars meant for the old style ST1100 with Grip Buddies. Seat is a 2nd try Terry A but much better than stock. Trunk/mount is a HF donation from a riding buddy from ST-Riders, modified with an inside 12v hella plug for a tablet and an brake LED strip behind the deflector. Rear views are M. SuperStore. Made a set of hyway bars using an old set of foot pegs of an ST1100. Starting at the front I added a SBD Fenda Extenda, 2" over SS front brake lines from AVtech. Fork brace from AV Tech, added Ricor Intiminators to the forks. Stebel air horn behind the rad. along with a forward lower left panel Hella plug for warm gear. Changed the SW Moto engine guards for Givi and added 2-35w Run-D Cree 7ct LED run lights off a Skeen dimmer. All lighting (tail lite exception) are LED, headlights JDMastar. In dash Digital volt meter, battery tender, Spare fuse block by EB with a tail light adaptor. All brake tail lighting to include 32ct Hyper Lites is thru a Back-Off modulator. Have gone with a 16T counter and Sunstar 47 rear, EK 525 new chain fed by a Loobman oiler that has some support pieces from Tutoro. Speed bleeders and 90deg valve stems. Whew!!!!
Modifications and Upgrades
Bull nose is 22mm SS bent, cut to fit the front on the SW Moto hard bag. Industrial strength Velcro is used to hold pieces on. No deiscernable change in mpg but the weester feels more stable in windy conditions.
