Africa Twin

1)  6th gear PLEASE!!!!
2)  Crashbars
3)  Tubeless rims.

I'm gonna replace my front sprocket with a bigger one. That will sort out the need for 6th. More than enough grunt in 1st.

Kaboef, You should also consider a Bosson pipe. A mate of mine fitted one to his AT. Sounds bef@k! and has added to performance too.

Ja, I thought about that too.
The OE pipe sounds a bit like a moffie.

Will look into the matter for sure..

Depends if its before a dump, or after a dump, up to you what type of dump you think I am referring to?

After spending alot of money on TT bling and selling my GS realised there is only a few mods I really need.

1. Crashbars
2. Better Bush/Hand Guards
3. Wider footpegs
4. Handlebar risers
5. go faster zorts

Currently the only mods to my Africa Twin is wider footpegs, laser exhaust and have bought handguards but never fitted them :lol:

On my GS I had every mentionable item and the only items for me that was worthwhile:

TT Rear Luggage rack
Crashbars
TT GPS mount
Handlebar risers
TT Seat
TT Panniers and frames

No lotto, just over a long time. There are a lot more mods that can be done, but one must decide if one 'wants' the extras, or one 'needs' the extras. In my case it was a case of 'needs'. I have a crapload more kit, but considering where I go, it is all justified extras. That's my story and I am sticking to it. :D  :D
