If you build with care there is little to be modded after MVSA. I had only to move the fuel pump as low as posible,additional throttle hand lever and remove the windscreens.
The only item I am reconsider to buy is scooter top case placed in front of the passenger seat for little storage space. The sprocket ratio is a future deal because the chains and sprockets are in too good condition Not sure if it is worth the effort to change them now.
Thanks Erik, yes I think when it passes I can tinker although to be honest I'm trying to do all I can now so I don't have to take bits apart or change this and that if you know what I mean. First small voyage, not one thing I could complain about even steering was bang on, that to me is rare specially after all that go's into a build from start to finish. Been following a couple of threads, how's your water bottle performing Erik?
The original coolant reservoir is still under investigation. I filled her up close to it's neck and went for a 120 mile drive and it was about 2" under the cap when hot but below the low mark on the bottle when cooled down. I did have a little air under the breather tank cap before the test and no air trapped after the cool down so I guess the end levels should be smaller as it is now when I fill er up high again. As for now I should conclude the original reservoir should be good for the tR1ke if you fill er up high. The marks on the reservoir don't work in the tr1ke because the breather tank is a spare reservoir itself before coolant level in the system gets air. I guess it's 0.5Litre spare coolant outside the system and if the reservoir is emptty there is enough in the breather tank to come home so no worries here. As for now the hig and low levels are within the reservoir volume.
I do have to note my coolant temp is 75C average aand hasn't been over 90C yet which indicates my coolant expands less as others who showed higher readings which are caused by the stock mesh and angled radiator which blocks laminair airflow. The oil temp is 90-95C average and in slow traffic it went 103C which is exellent to keep the sludge out of the engine. From slow traffic 103C to highway speed the oil and water temp sinks which is great. As far as I know my fan hasn't been turned on yet but with a helmet and earplugs on there is a lot of noise kept from the driver It still would be of interest to add a fan warning light on the dash to see it turn on for real... But again it's good now.
Feel free to browse in my thread. There are quite some mods worth cloning. Good to see you're right on track!
