    Lowered and Extended Brake Pedal

    Finally got around to finishing a lowered and extended brake lever for my F800ST, its 20mm lower and 20mm further out.
    I'd already made a lower gear lever (previous thread) to suit the lower MV...

    Odd, sounds like that particular pad was a really bad match - I have the OEM Brembo pads in my ST, and the braking is quite frankly brilliant. Will practically stand it on it's nose in an emergency...

    I'd never heard of this before, but handy to know about it - especially if you're going touring and suddenly find your cap missing in the middle of the Alps!

    It works fine if I leave the gear lever in the 'standard' position. But when it's like this, I don't have enough rotation in my ankle to change gear -up or down - without lifting my foot off the peg....

    Thanks Chris- although that looks like the Suburban Machinery kit, rather than the MV Verholen ones?
    The ones I've fitted are simpler, just an adaptor and an adjustable block on splines. I'll see if...

    At the weekend I fitted the footrest lowering kit from MV Verholen, bought from another member here in the classifieds last year.

    Of course. I always have a gallon or so of Isopropyl alcohol on hand and use it for this amongst other things.

    Burnt-off is not a bad description. Not exactly like that, but maybe something similar.

    HyperPro Fork Oil - Thumbs Down

    As I posted last year, I changed my fork springs and fork oil for 'upgraded' HyperPro items at the start of the summer.

    No, just like doing bits for myself now.

    Just fitted this Puig Hugger for the GT on the ST.
    Quite a bit of f***ing about to actually get it to fit, and fit well, but worth it I think.
