    Enduro Style Foot Pegs (or Rest)

    I like to stand up when I ride, here on the Blackland Prairie there are corn fields that grow to over 6 feet (that is a couple of meters for you metric types) Its handy to look over them. Also when rolling down hard pack and gravel roads I prefer standing. My problem is the stock pegs ( foot...

    oil filter..??

    I found this site MOBIL M1-104 - cross reference oil filters | oilfilter-crossreference.com Its a close match but the diameter is 1/8 of an inch larger. The thread M20 and pitch 1.5 are good and looking at the cross references the Mahle doesn't show up. Yes it well work but it is NOT a lower...

    Bash plate

    It keeps the pole cats from getting wedged into the frame when you run over one, it also reduces armadillo splatter when you hit one.

    Tubeless conversion, anybody done it?

    It was 3 inches long, #8 in size so a plug would have worked like a champ.

    Tubeless conversion, anybody done it?

    I just dropped $30 US for a heavy duty tube and $40 US to have it installed. I could not break the bead, otherwise I would have installed it myself. Tube got ripped by a 3 inch screw and couldn't be patched. It won't take very many of those to consider a alternate system that is plug and play...

    Bash plate

    I have the RE plate still sitting on the bench, can't give it away!. I am happy with the TEC, its easy to remove and install during the oil change.

    Painting the Royal Enfeild cases

    Thats the nice thing about forums, it allows you to mark a time when you did something and if it goes south, you can always post up when it quit. I presume you can get brake caliper paint at an auto parts store.

    Best Oil Brands Pro/Cons

    The oil thread!!!! been my experience, synthetics well get you maybe 5K miles (8KM) between changes with a liquid cooled bike. You can feel the shifts are not as smooth after it breaks down. Air cooled I would say 3K miles (4800 KM) you well notice it in the shifts. Because it changes out so...

    S & S Cycles 750 and 865 Big Bore kits for the 650 twins.

    The Interceptor and Continental are designed to keep the aftermarket busy. It starts with one little thing and like a snow ball rolling downhill, next thing you know its out of control! I needed the bars another inch up and the footpegs down and back. then it was panniers and the new seat...

    Bash plate

    I ordered a sump cover plate ( I think thats what RE calls it) before I saw the TEC plate. I don't recall the fellows name but I can quote him' "its a bit fiddly to put on and it interferes with the oil filter" . Why yes, yes it is and does! So my problem is a $70 part I can't currently mount. I...

    Cheap but expensive

    I am finding the Brits make some very nice bits, they are priced accordingly. Both TEC and Hitchcocks have a nice catalog of wonderful shinny things! The OEM bits can be found on flea bay, priced accordingly. So the OEM touring seat I get out of India, the perfect fit bar risers, British. The...
