  1. Hi,
    Thanks to the admin and mods for the site. Keep up the good work. =D>

    About me...

    Did go for my L's many years ago, but never followed it through.

    Late 30s, did my L's again,
    Just got off my lams. Rode an '07 GS500F for about a year and a half, had a great time. Did the 1/4 turn throttle mod.

    Recently bought an '08 CBR600RR, stock condition.

    saw a proper HID projector headlight upgrade here and just had to sign up.

    Not into fully sick bling... more a subtle bling kind of guy.


    edit, in Sydney, south west.
  2. Welcome, Ed :)
  3. Nice to have you here, springs.
  4. Welcome to NR Ed, you'll feel right at home here with lots of "subtle" kind of people here :)
  5. What is the throttle mod you did all about?

    Welcome to the forummm
  6. Thanks guys.
    The throttle mod, so long ago I forgot its the 1/5 turn, not 1/4. Anyway its a straight swap of the throttle twist grip with one from a SV650 carbbie model. It reduces the amount of twist needed to get the GS throttle wide open. Its a 10 minute job and makes a noticeable difference. The stock grip is 1/4 turn or 90 degrees, the SV650 one is 1/5 turn or 72 degrees.
