Lara's new Adventure Dress
 
She's ready for some adventure!

The noticeable changes:

SW-Motech Crash Bars, Center Stand, Side Racks, and TraX Evo panniers.

Giant Loop Diablo Pro tank bag

Ram mounts galore (2 in cockpit, 2 mounted to crashbars)

1 USB Port and 1 12V Accessory port.

Spaced the windscreen up. 1 inch at top, 1/2 inch on bottom. Creates a steeper angle which helps with deflection.

Non-As noticeable changes
Gearing change from 15-41 to 17-39. This bike has short gearing stock. At speed it only got 51mpg due to the high RPM needed. Now at speed with the gearing change, knocked about 1k revs off, and increased fuel mileage considerably. At 70 I get around 58, but it's at 60 I saw the biggest improvement to 68mpg (this is with luggage and loaded).

12'oclock labs Speed DRD. A 20% discrepancy after gearing was just too much for me to deal with. Plus it really would have tossed mileage off making it more difficult to track.

The Backordered
SW-Motech under engine guard and stainless footpegs (I hate small rubber footpegs!)

The what's to come: Rally Raid Adv 3 conversion :D

5 more days until it's Needle North for my return to the Cassiar!

Definitely will.

Will be updating on my blog as I can as well.

Also ordered this out. Won't make it before my trip, but decided instead of making my own brackets for the screen, I should just pay someone else for their work.

Palmer Products - Honda - CB500X / CB400X

Don't tell Lara, but it makes her look a little fat!? ;)
