  1. I just looked up SpeedoHealer, I didn't even know it existed - Thanks! has two benefits that I like, correct speed and correct mileage reading. I might instal one.
  2. Is there a fix for the error, I noticed first on my GPS when I was doing 140 kmh on the bike speedo, the gps registered a top speed of 130 kmh, and in highway traffic where I suspect people are driving at 110 kmh, the bike is reading around 120 kmh. Today I checked against my car, had my son drive for 3 miles with the cruise set at 110 kmh and falling very close behind I was reading 117 - 118 kmh (as best I could to maintain a safe close distance) and at 100 kmh for three miles I was reading 107-108 kmh. Now I know, but can this be adjusted?
  3. I turned down a 10 mm socket to 13 mm OD (0.520") on my old SouthBend lathe, worked perfectly. I only had to tighten each about 1/2 a turn.
  4. They are a class act and respond quickly to customer service requests through email. I was very happy with them during my Klim jacket purchase and delivery.
  5. Its better than stock for sure. Still get wind noise and buffeting, less though. I am happy with the improvement and gland that I tried this one. If I duck down about 2 to 3 inches I am in a very quite area.
  6. Hi, did you have any issues with centre stand clearance? I checked out the website, these seem very reasonably priced.
  7. So, 55 km ride to work this morning (all highway average speed 110 km/h and 8 degrees C), I would say this screen is better than the stock one, but not as good as I wanted it to be. Buffeting is a bit less it seems, but its still there. I am 5'-9", seat is on the low position. I does look way better, so I will give it that, and it seems to better control the air around me, but on the stock one where I could duck down about 2 -3 inches to get into the quiet zone, same for this one even though it is about 1 1/2" taller.
  8. I decided to try the National Cycle Sport Touring screen. It arrived today and installed in a couple of minutes. I didn't have time to test it yet, but here are a few pictures of before and after including comparison to stock. I will update once I go for a road test.

  9. I ordered my radiator guard and tail tidy from Evotech in the UK, it was 5 days for delivery, no issues what so ever. I am in Canada
  10. I am very impressed with this Jacket so far and I don't expect that to change. If you are on the fence, go for it and I am sure like me there will be no regrets. The tag on my Jacket says Made In China, that doesn't change anything for me but to be honest I will spend more for products made in North America if the choice exists, but those choices seem few and far in between.
  11. I had my first ride in the Klim Apex jacket yesterday evening. It arrived last week but we were away on vacation. It took 6 weeks from order to delivery, not a problem since its been cold here, in fact I only have 17km on my new Tracer -- sheesh. I went with the black large jacket and am very impressed so far with the look, fit and fell of it. It is expensive and might be over priced a bit but I have no regrets. It was 7 degrees C last night (44 F) with a strong north wind and I had a tee-shirt and light long sleeve shirt on under the jacket, and the jacket and was not cold. The jacket stops all wind from entering and seems to help retain body heat. The jacket also feels great, fits very nicely (my body shape is not so easily fitted 5'-9 and 195 lbs), kind of like you want to wear it while driving your car also lol. Another thing that I found classy on behalf of Klim and Twisted throttle, the jacket arrived laying flat nicely in a large box and with a Klim hanger - just a nice final touch I think, not a big deal but know I know if some one else here is using my hanger. I have no idea how it vents yet because its so darn cold out - every day it seems, so I will focus on warmth for a while. I am sure that it will vent as others describe and have no worries about it. The reviews are accurate for this jacket. Very impressed so far.
  12. Welcome, where are you from? What are the number stickers on the forks? Nice picture.
  13. Its crazy how much we need to pay in Canadian dollars for this, I am keeping an eye on the Pound to Canadian dollar exchange rates, obviously if the gap narrows, its less to purchase from across the pond. Also, the sale that Kimpex has on the full system will get you a complete system for slightly more than just the muffler from others, I though of going that rout and only using the muffler, but I don't wan to spend that much for just the muffler with no intention of installing the rest of it. Could put the header pieces on Kijiji, but realistically, who would want just the header?
  14. I have, that thread is 95% responsible for my decision or thought that the Scoprion Sereket Slip-on is the best option for me. Its a well comprised thread and essentially had all the information that I need to a) think that I need a different muffler, b) choose the Scorpion Sereket.
