Just plain elbow grease my friend. The clamp is aluminum, so it sands up pretty nice. I used a 220 grit initially to remove the clear paint or anodizing that was on the top, then went up to 600 grit with water. I left it a "brushed" look, as I didn't want to have it polished to where the sun would reflect off it and blind me.Hi Ian
How did you clean your top yoke so well and leave it in that fantastic condition?
Sunday, May 14th (mothers day) NYST Rookie Weekend is on the books. 3 of us so far, plus my buddy who instructs for the penguin school. He's promised some one to one time with me as well. AS LONG AS IT DOESNT R.A.I.N.!Bro bro bro what the hell man... What's Nike slogan? "just do it..." Just do it and book a track day already. Agent 99 got to stretch her legs...
Good suggestion! I would expect that as I get (or ever get) track days under my belt, some sort of aftermarket dash will be installed, or I'll do another F4i mod. They're smaller.As you don't need a speedo, one suggestion would be to cover the clock in matt black fablon and stick the gear indicator on that.
After some short internet research, I concluded that the 600RR was a prime candidate for this mod. They aren't too tall, fit relatively well, and look the part.What bike are those from... hold up, I think you stated, "stay tuned"
The gain (if you can even call it that) is more space under the airbox, presumably better reliability in the coils, and having an excuse to change something. No power gains, maybe a few oz's in weight savings??, but I thought I had a dodgy coil so I figured for under $50 I would do the mod. Kept me out of trouble for the last week anyway.I might've missed it (since PWs don't read very well), but what is the purpose of this "mod", and what do you intend to gain by it?
