Bought the 01 929 r/b 2 days ago and I have only put about 55 miles on it so far.
The previous owner hacked off the fender in a pretty cheesy fashion, and went to a -1 front sprocket it appears. He also laid it down so the left bar end and rear peg are scratched.
Riding: really enjoy the power and torque a ton. Feel like the power comes on smoothly although throttle response is a little jerky. I think it is more comfortable on every part of me than my F2 was. It is the nicest bike I have ever had. Cornering sometimes still feels a little less than rock solid. I am wondering what the deal is there. I am running 35 psi in my front currently.
Previous owner installed custom low profile turn signals and they are okay, but the front two don't work properly. I am checking to see if it is merely bulb failure or something else. One bulb is certainly toast. The wiring is half-baked for sure. I am no electrician, but last time I checked scotch tape is not the best method for splicing some wire together...
The scratched up bar end and clutch handle need to be replaced.
I don't want to/need to increase horsepower or speed, so aside from that, what additions/modifications are good?
I think some kind of FE or undertail may be in order because the hack job is not beautiful. Any thoughts on which is best or easiest to install?
I am thinking about one of those tank protectors because most of my bikes start to look pretty lame from tank-rub (I am short so I am really on the tank a lot).
And how about frame sliders? Really interested on what kind, where to get them, how hard to install for the 929.
The sprocket mod has apparently screwed my speedo so I probably ought to get one of those correctors I suppose.
Also interested in a tank bag. Any input on brand/type/style?
I know that is a bundle there. Any input would be keen (rest assured I have read back about 200 threads, and conducted searches on about 20 topics so I have done some due diligence
