Following on from my thread in the New Ride section, I thought I would post up the progress I have made customising and modifying the Hornet I got from hornet. This is how it looked at hornet's place: Then I got it home: A perfectly respectable blue Honda Hornet. Then I got offered a paint job for a price I couldn't refuse (originally to touch up an unpainted tank repair). While I was waiting for paint I got some other bits and pieces. And complete: Balanced the carbies and did some tuning and got the Hornet running pretty well. Still is a bit reluctant on a cold start but at least idles now and can warm itself up. Might need the pilot jets slightly richer. Over the past weekend I also fitted some Renthal Ultra Low handlebars, which have made the riding position a little lower and more comfortable for my long arms! I also fitted a 12V accessory plug for two reasons - to charge my phone on long rides, and to attach a 12V solar charger for extended periods between rides. In addition, I also fitted a relay on the existing heated grips so there is no chance of them killing the battery when the ignition is off. Rode it back to my place in Sydney yesterday, already have a ride to Phillip Island planned for Casey's last Australian MotoGP race! Still to do: - Bigger mirrors, possibly with indicators - small ones were a mistake! - Thinking of touching up or updating the dash. Looks exactly like the sun bleached dash on my Spada and I think I want a slight change! - Polish & detail some more - Ride, ride ride... - Plot the next update!
