Unless RE has changed its policy since I sold my C5 last year, the factory warranty is not transferable....
However, this person managed to lose some lbs. from his bike, you might find some suggestions there....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwhmluI2E60
In the US, the warranty is not transferable. In other countries it might be.
Gashousegorilla has done a spectacular job of weight reduction and you may want to look at his build in this section. I have the lighter front fender and a plastic Triumph Thruxton seat on mine. Have fun with your C5!
Hi There,I recently bought a RE Bullet, C5 Classic 2012. UCE EFI.Chance encounter to be honest, I had my scooter stolen and after a few months of searching for alternatives I came across a Bullet. I didn't think we had a distributor in Australia and bought it next day. It's an amazing bike, alot of fun to ride.I was thinking about future plans and looking at performance. Since I'm a massive rookie at all this, I wasn't looking to mess with the engine and the first place I was looking at was weight reductions on the bike.For example, the front and rear wheel guards feel like plate steel. Also removing some of the tool boxes and moving the wiring / filters under seat.If there is someone with experience with this could you let me know where a good place to start would be? What weight reduction can safely be made and what impact that will have on overall performance.I'm new to all this so any advice here would be helpful.Cheers,Pedro
I'm confused..........a recent article on the UCE showed a rear wheel horsepower on the dyno of 18 horsepower. If you want more, why would you buy an RE in the first place???It is what it is....leave it alone and ride. . Two more horse won't get you there faster.Like the guy said....20 horsepower will get you anywhere in the world....the rest is just "wheel spin" !!
Everyone telling Pedrocas that it is what it is and leave it alone, lighten up! Just because someone else's mods don't suit your tastes doesn't make them completely null and void. If you want to keep the stock look but shed some weight, look at getting aluminum fenders and an aftermarket exhaust. You can get batteries that are much lighter and smaller, maybe even relocate it and ditch the stock battery box. You can remove the tool boxes as long as you find somewhere else to put what's inside. As already mentioned, some intake and exhaust work will give you a bit more power but not that much. You can also look into relacing the wheels onto aluminum rims. Lightening rotating mass gives big gains. And anyone who says a C5 can't be fast, take a look at Gorilla's bike. Not easy but it ain't slow either. Scott
