Like the seat. looks comfy.

What is it ? where did you get it ? And (painful bit) how much ?

Got to say i dont like white bikes/cars/buses/vans etc. But thats more down to the fact I drive a white motor all day.

Lovely bike though . :gj:

Seat was done by Tony Archer in Huddersfield :

You send him your seat and he sends the shiny new one back, the modifications are £60, you will have to arange postage with him direct.

And yep, its incredibly comfy. :mrgreen:

The bike looks complete - very 'together'.
That seat is the business and the bars as well.

Good work! ;)

ps Love the Ace Cafe sticker on the screen.

I love those bar risers, I dont like leaning forward too much and is my only gripe with the RF.
How do they feel to ride with them?
Are they as easy to fit as they look?
It looks as though you dont have to touch the yoke?
Did you have to lenghten any cables etc?
How much are they?
Where from?

Cheers,

Jelly.

LOL! erm..

1. they raise the bars by about 5" so you sit more upright, but i have noticed it must be a funny angle as it caused my shoulders to ache.

2. no they are not as easy as they look unfortunately.. it took a lot of messing about with measurments and angles and the top yoke standard bar mounts needed grinding to accept the risers, which wasnt easy, again a lot of measuring and messing about.

3. We only had to change one brake hose as it was too short, the clutch line and cables were fine.

4. they are called " Vario " risers and I was lucky enough to get them from ebay, they normally retail for about £80 from places like M&P or Busters.
