General Information

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 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. Puig Foot pegs, Tool caddy tube...Whew!!!!

I hope Weester appreciates all you have done...that's quite a do you find the mirrors for reducing buffeting compared to Suzuki's pancakes, was there much of a difference? Is their much vibration transfer to the mirrors or are they as stable as Suzuki's?

Hello Jerry, I can't find where I may have answered your question....anyway I forgot to add those to my list of things not OEM, they are from Motorcycle Superstore and cost $ 27.17 back in 016. Anyway they did help from wind buffeting better than the oem for sure. I still get little even with deflectors out front, but at some point you learn to live with some of it vs. getting back into a cage...ha! Apologies for the late reply.
