    Noob's FXR project

    Nothing flash, a basically std FXR with;
    GN250 Carb
    Pod Filter
    Race CDI
    125 GP slicks
    Exhaust header weld opened up and rear baffle removed.
    I've just followed the tips from the http://www.FXR150.co.nz 2007 MotoFXR project thread. Thanx Bren

    ha cool! coming along very nicely!

    u might want to raise the seat up a bit, like 2" maybe... will make it easier to ride, or maybe thats not the final resting place?

    Argggh bugger! I had a good nosey at Budda's and his seat was on the frame rails and that looked simple and easy. I've got some 20mm closed cell foam for a seat pad, I guess I'll just make it couple of thicknesses

    Been back in the shed :)

    I thought I'd tidy up all the stray wiring behind the front fairing from the lights, indicators etc etc so started tracing it back thru the loom. Then I started thinking about getting rid of the heavy looking fairing/instrument mounting bracket. After a bit of a look it seemed doable with a bit of scrap alloy plate I just happened to have lying around as you do

    Yeah yeah I know why keep the instruments? As I have one of Bren's electrickery ignitions without a rev limiter it seems sensible to keep the tacho so I have some idea of wot revs I'm using rather than abuse it unnecessarily. I'll look into using a 12v alarm battery or similar to power the tacho and see how that goes which will hopefully allow me to get rid of the heavy std battery, eletric leg and associated stuff..
