Bike modís gone wrong !?

Every now and then it seems like you get something in, put it on your bike and you donít like.

You put something on that you did not like how it looked or fit. Added something that did not give you the performance increase that you wanted or worse, you get in over your head. eg: ( Engine Rebuild, Tearing down Forks...etc..)

What's your story ?

Re: Bike modís gone wrong !?

Nothing, I'm happy with my bike. Pretty standard except the braided brake lines and rear wheel hugger and windshield. Only mod if you can call it that was the alarm. Piece of shit would drain the battery flat over a two week period, plus false alarms. It has been disconnected, best thing I've done for all the years I've owned the bike. I never wanted to throw too much money into my bike, knowing that I'd never get it back anyway.

My yosh slip on didn't give me 25 more hp. Luckily the extra decals made up the difference.

Best mod: letting this chick I go to school with ride on my bike so I could bang her. (Which I did)

Worst mod: having her fat friend ask me for the same thing.

Re: Bike modís gone wrong !?

Not personal experience but I saw an engine at my friend's dealership not too long ago that the owner had FUBARed, trying to save a buck. It was an older Katana engine with screw-adjusted valve rockers. The guy had adjusted valves himself but hadn't tightened the locknuts properly so the adjuster screws backed out... Wasn't pretty

No cut frame sliders and weighted bar ends. After 1 season, I ended up using the cut style sliders and bar end mirrors.

Switching the OEM mirrors for signal lights while attempting to use handle bar mirrors.

Shit is the worst thing you can do. Can't see anything and it looks dumb.

Re: Bike modís gone wrong !?

Lot's of control clearance issues on my 2012 1000. Wish I would have gotten a 0 degree clip on opposed to the 7 degree down agile I have.

I ended up getting the Woodcraft 1 inch clip on riser kit to solve the problem, wish I would have gotten that day one.

On my 750 I hated the carbon fender I got after the OEM broke at the track.

The speedo healer I got sucks, wish I would have gotten the Healtch one instead.

You're the first person I've ever seen that was unhappy with that setup. I know with my CRG's I can see much better than with my OEM mirrors & the look grew on me after a while.

Just a wild guess

Re: Bike modís gone wrong !?

One time I was gonna dremel off part of the brake lever so I could adjust it to where it needed to be(common k4 thing). The dremel slipped and i cut the ignition wire. Bike wouldnt even turn over.



I came back the next day and realized I had taken the battery out of my bike and I had only cut the rear brake light wire. Last time Ill ever work on my bike drunk

Make that two - I prefer the stock setup both functionally and aesthetically
