Hello everyone!
Yoday i have changed back to orginal rollers from DrP 15g.
I have driven 800km with them now and wanted to try the orginal again to compare the difference in rpm & acc .
As i remembered so were the orginals quite nice with low rpm and good acc but with the shaky starts.
I also checked the oil, looked good, but forgot to screw it back, more to that later..

After driven 50km in different traffic i must say i already miss the DrPulley, they really are so much nicer with quicker acc, the same rpm much better acc and much less stuttering on start. So they will be back asap.

So back to the unscrewed oilstick.
I tock the bike to work 5 in the morning and it was no wind, 15 celcius, perfect for speeding. After 15km in 120km/h i saw lots of smoke in the rear mirror and thought to myself: whats wrong with that car behind me, drove a couple of km more and i still saw the smoke but no car behind me, hmm
I got to stop and see if it is from.
Stoped and put it on center stand saw nothing from the cvt and got around the bike and saw that the breaks, wheel , exhaust and engine was full of oil, panic!
Luckily the oilstick was there against the exhaust but the oilhole was fully seen, and it was only 100m to the gasstation.
Wiped away the worst oil and checked the oil, 20% left, so fast to work.
After work removed exhaust and cleaned with degreeser and high pressure water.
And filled up with oil.
The rear break i of course in no good condition with all that oil on the breakpads. But that i will fix when returning from vacation in Bella Italia with lots of pasta and redvine 😎!

I am really happy even though i was so clumsy 😯 With all that oil on the rear tire in 120km/h it could end a compleatly different way! 🤕

Be safe friends and have a great weekend

Hi All,

Installed my LED Aux lights yesterday onto the bike. Mounted them using the windscreen's M8 mounting screws - refer to pictures.

Will take it to the shop to have the wiring done professionally next weekend.

Hi Rich,

Thanks. But I believe I am on the other side of the globe.

Got the wiring done professionally over the weekend, complete with a Hansa elec relay, fuse, backlit waterproof switch which is wired to the ignition.

Used them on the way to work, which was about a 40min ride, The aux lights weren't even hot. As it was during the day, I can't tell how bright they are yet, but going thru tunnels, I dare say they are 2 times brighter than my existing low beams which I have already upgraded to LEDs.

Will post up pics soon.

Looks awesome, kneeslider!! I wish we were neighbors, so we could do mine too. Love the color also

I believe you are correct, about being across the globe. It was just wishful thinking.Maybe some day, brother,some day.

Hi All,

Managed to get some road pics at night for the comparison.

First pic is just my low beams from the projectors using Nighteye H11 LEDs. Notice the spread is somewhat inconsistent as the diodes are located at 180degrees of each other.

Second pic is the low beams with the new aux 3w x 6 (3.5inch round) flood lights.

Third pic is with everything on. My high beams ares till the factory fitted halogens.

Started installing HID's for HI's/Lo's  while i was investigating the best route/methodology i noticed the front turn signals within the headlight housing themselves were not actually wired up.  the power wire was shunted at the ground joint - has anyone else noticed this? i'm a little bit less than impressed with OEM's choice for doing so.

pictures to come ***

I am located in Malaysia, the Downtowns here do not have the front signals at the front of the side mirrors, ours are those in the main headlight housing next to the high beams as your described.
