Find a different shop, an experienced shop won't be making up excuses not to fix it right away.
This one had been here since '89 and seemed to have good backing, even from someone on here. But I have found another one that I'll use if needed. Hopefully, nothing I can't handle from here on out. I'm decent with a car but bikes are still new to me.
The brake lever looks bent, cheap to replace, one bolt job.
I bought this bike on the 4th of July and have put 900 miles on it since and just today noticed the level was not straight like the other..
Nothing should twist or move, there are supposed to be holes drilled in the clip ons, for pins to lock things in place, someone apparently didn't handle this task due to brain damage, and cut the pins off, which sounds like what you have now.
The two phillips screws are the only things I saw that looked like it might tighten it.
Got to love second hand sport bikes in the hands of one novice after another. THIS is why I never buy old bikes, especially with wrong mods slapped on the wrong way. (I hope the rev limiter lamp hasn't blown out yet.)
Eh, I bought it not knowing any better. But, it starts, runs, and shifts well and all lights work. Least I'll learn a bit taking things apart.
If it doesn't matter to you I would ditch both clip ons and that silly triple clamp.
I agree. I was planning to go back to the stocker once the cold weather arrives. its perfect riding weather right now so I'm not wanting too much down time as I'm not positive on how to change those pieces just yet.
If the shop routed the cables that way they probably did it because lock to lock steering may have been a lot worse than it is now, but I don't like their decision.
What is the factory route or how would you have done it?
It looks as though you have a Repsol painted fairing? Not standard 929 fare there either.
Pretty sure it is a Chinese ebay kit. Still is clean and looks good though.
The switch pods do have locating (well should have ) pins in them to prevent rotation. If you spin them around you'll either have to cut it out or drill another hole in the clip on. Yet another reason to ditch them.
How would I determine the pin location?
