After Ceramic coating was done by Powerkote.

A, lala maar dit lyk mooi. Wat is die skade om dit te laat doen?
More, die ceramic coating was R1300.00 daar by julle in die Kaap. Hulle het ons beter prys gegee want ons het 2 laat doen.

Ongelukkig al wat vir ons gehelp het was om van die CAT ontslae te raak, my vrou is nou baie gelukkig agterop die LC.(J-Bay toe en terug) Ons gaan volgende naweek na die Whale Rally toe in Hartenbos en sal dan die eerste keer wees wat ons weer langpad gaan ry. Ons sal terugvoering gee daarna oor hoe dit nou op die fiets was.

Ander ding vir my is dat die fiets nou vir my trek soos wat n LC moet trek, baie krag van onderaf regdeur met geen heiwering of iets nie. Ek was bekommerd oor die Exhaust Valve wat ook uitgekom het maar kan in alle eerlikheid se ek weet nie eers dat dit uit is nie en soos ek se die fiets trek regdeur soos n stoomtrein.

Let me know if anyone wants to give a BoosterPlug a try to see if it alleviates the problem. 1190R riders says it makes their bikes run cooler and air cooled riders report that pinging stops. I am willing to supply a loan unit.

Hi Jaco, I would like to try the booster plug on my new bike, I have a surging at constant throttle position.I fitted a slip-on last night and was hoping that it might help but it seems worse. Let me know where and when we can try it out

Thanks

Hi Mayhem. You are welcome. I am in Table View, Cape Town - give me a shout. Surging is a common 1200 complaint, linked to lean fuel mixtures. I have had some good feedback.
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

Hi Almal, ons was toe Hartenbos toe gewees met die GSA en kan nou se dat ek geen hitte probleem op die fiets meer het nie. My vrou is ook baie gelukkig.

Manne. Probeer asb. Sit acro slip on op. Myne het nie meer hitte probleem na ek slip on aangesit het nie. In 'n baie baie klein mate ja, maar niks meer as met vorige modelle nie

So mens moet nou R16K+ uitgee om 'n ontwerp fout aan te spreek? Nee wat, tensy BMW die Akro gratis saamgee is dit 'n goeie oplossing maar uiteindelik nie die regte een nie.

Meneer Draad-trek ek het hom daai kazorst waarvan jy praat maar ek dink 'n dwarswind dra ook maar baie toe tot daai hitte probleem. Ek en Frannarossi het verskriklik wind gehad op en af van die Bash af en dis het nogsteeds haar boot moertoe beskadig. :patch: :patch:

Hi Draadwerk,
What did the slip on cost?
