Racetech front springs and gold valves 
Ohlins rear shock
Yoshi R77 carbon can
Banditmania belly pan
Ventura rack
Rad guard radiator guard
Healtech speedo healer
Healtech gear position indicator
Delkevic headers, PAIRS block-off and O2 sensor removed
Mirror extender blocks
LED strip running lights front and rear
Repainted wheel rims and JPS livery
Wave disc brake rotors

With LED lighting getting better all the time, I'm planning to add some 'spots' to help the pathetic standard "S" model headlight.
Changed the screen to a Givi but didn't like it so stock went back on (I was too tall for the Givi).

Post  Al Fentanyl on June 23rd 2011, 11:33 am

2008 1250S Metallic Blue, 13,000km



Factory accessory solo seat
Full Givi touring kit
Single Seat Compliance plate
Pro-oiler (best investment yet)
Michelin PR2 x 2
RR repositioning bracket (by Gus Industries Laughing )
Ventura headlight protector (hit by rock, split, glued back together, still doing the business)
Airhawk Seat

Still to come, but no particular hurry:
Radiator Guard
Sheepskin Seat (not convinced about the Airhawk)
Cruise Control (electronic unit)
Suspension upgrade - pull the linkages apart, lubricate & reassemble properly, a fork & shock rebuild / revalve / respring.
Braided Steel Brake Lines
Rims either stripped like Gus', or powdercoated silver
Headlight upgrade to HID

Not intending to replace the standard exhaust or frick with the engine at this stage - the thing really has enough grunt already. I have rounded up enough boy racers on their megabuck rocketships on the mountain ranges around Cairns to be content that there is power enough for my needs.

You just need a different lube and apply the correct amount Laughing

Other than a scorpion pipe, ventura rack and a vista throttle lock my B12 is unchanged from when I bought it.

I like the bike the way it is. Although I do need to do something about he the headlights, I swear they're getting worse.

I didn't think it was possible either. High beam seems alright, in that its no worse than it always was. But low beam seems to getting worse. It might just be that they need to be adjusted up a bit.

Embarassed I was just out having a smoke and thought I'd have a closer look at the headlights. The low beam side wasn't 'mounted' properly and was hanging down slightly in the housing. This has been fixed. Hopefully the low beam with be better now.
