The top three first mods I would recommend to any new RE are:1) new grips, preferable some gel types from Pro-Grip2) 7" headlight3) change the stock fork oil for 195ml of 10w fork oilScott
I went with the BPF unit ...
The turn signals in the 7 inch photo were also changed by installing some Nfieldgear metal bullet lights.
Either way, you need to get the overpriced 7" lamp adapter.
BPF = British Pre-FocusIt is a reflector/Lense assembly with P38D bulbs (vacuum ) and a separate T-9 pilot lamp offset from focus to illuminate the lense.
This is the most aptly named thread I've seen in a while
Bare,Do you have any specific information on the Sylvania bulb that you referenced (part number, etc.)?
Neither my Lucas headlight or my all metal bullet turn signals have DOT certification. It's another of my rebellions against against dictatorial Government agencies showing.
The high beam has a distracting triangular dark patch that points like an arrow straight ahead, right where I want light to see. The pic shows the short-range effect - doesn't seem like much of a problem, but stretched out over the road, it's a dark area right where you want to see! Anyone else with this lamp experience this?
