HDB ADV Hand Guards

Just finished the installation of the HDB ADV Hand Guards, Due to misunderstanding I was supplied the wrong Top Clamp, will get correct one at end of month. I had to do a little bending to make it fit but not a lot. Will give feedback once I have taken a ride with it.

Last minute item, received this as well

Jets & HDB Handguards

Yip the UPS man delivered again. Now I have all the items to do the full Dave's Mod and I did get the full HDB Handguards, they look really strong.


Now the modifications can start, I am still going to try and get the BRP on a dyne before any mods and then once all done get dyne done again, just to determine what it actually meant.

Oil Temperature Gauge

Ok, did the whole 12buck oil temperature gauge mod.

Works excellent, running on the blackstuff at about 55mph temperature is 240F

Trail riding in 1st & 2nd gear temperature is 225F

Highest it went during the afternoon is 248F

Now the BRP has got only 280km on the clock so I am not hammering it yet, I will keep updating the temperature readings.

Here's some pictures

Xmas UPS

Ok, got the following delivered by the UPS Xmas man.

XR's Only Muffler

Uni Filter

Clark 4.7 Tank

XR's Only Smog block off kit

Harbor Freight Temperature Gauge

Fastenal M20 x 2.5 Bolts

Still waiting for

Jets from JetsRus

Handguards from Highway Dirt Rider

Vapour Instrument

Pivot Pegz

The plan is to dyne my XR before doing any modifications and then dyno it after, will give feedback on what jets eventually gave best result.

I did do the Oil Temperature Gauge Modification this afternoon, will have to wait for the glue to set, so tomorrow I will be able to start having an idea of just how hot the Big Red Pig runs. This will eventually give the information that is needed to decide whether to fit an oil cooler or not. It will also give an idea of running temperature differences after the smog stuff, air filter, jets and exhaust have been done

Well after some research, I went ahead and ordered the following:

Xr's Only Smog Kit

Uni Filter from Xr's Only

Xr's Only Exhaust

Clark 4.7 from CycleBuy

Now ones these have arrived via the post we will continue with the assembly

I have also found the Jets for the Dave's Carb Mod at Jetrus, I think, as soon as I can get confirmation that these are the correct ones to buy, they will be ordered.

Then I have decided that the Hand Guards that I want are the Ultimate Handguards

Now I am still looking for a digital oil temperature gauge before I decide on which oil cooler I must get.

Open to any suggestions
