    mivv exhaust

    does anyone know if mivv gp exhausts come with a 18mm bung for running auto tune?
  2. Not that I know of. Ill post an update once I can ride more.
  3. there isn't much of advantage maybe just less lubing and cable breaking over time. maybe more reliable? I haven't had it on there long enough to see how itll hold up yet. but I just think it looks cooler and is smoother too.
  4. Ok so how I did it. I ordered levers such as these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pair-7-8-22mm-Motorcycle-Hydraulic-Handlebar-Brake-Cylinder-Master-Clutch-Lever/183181389246?hash=item2aa6762dbe%3Ag%3A9iwAAOSwbF1aMyuc&_sacat=0&_nkw=motorcycle+hydraulic+clutch+&_from=R40&rt=nc&LH_TitleDesc=0|0 Then I just measured the clutch cable length from end to end, which was about 80-90 cm 33ish inches or so, and looking up hydraulic brake lines: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-39-200cm-Motorcycle-Brake-Hose-Oil-Pipe-Line-Braided-Fitting-Ends-US/302742352667?hash=item467cd9b31b%3Am%3AmOcmqleouGUoxLc7pue91wQ&var=601612091296&_sacat=0&_nkw=motorcycle+brake+line&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC1.A0.H0.Xmotorcycle+brake+line.TRS0 I ordered a 90cm line which fit perfectly following the routing of the original clutch cable. So then I ordered a slave cylinder. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Motorcycle-modified-hydraulic-clutch-pull-clutch-slave-cylinder-Efficient-pump/173410241758?hash=item28600e4cde%3Ag%3ARH0AAOSwA-1a9B51&_nkw=motorcycle+hydraulic+clutch+slave+cylinder&rt=nc I went with fairly cheap parts but quality parts can be bought if wanted. works fine now filled with dot 4 fluid and may need to modify the wiring for the clutch safety switch on the lever depending on what levers you buy. I had to change mine. brake side plugs right in. *another thing to mention is the slave cylinder doesn't need bleeding/have a bleed port on it. just fill with fluid and keep pumping and the air will workout itself*
  5. Hello I just wanted to share my successful attempt to install a hydraulic clutch in my bike! Here’s pictures. I still have a giant box of new parts to get my bike back together. But if all goes well next week the only thing that will even have a scratch on it from my crash will be my exhaust (which I am replacing too!)
  6. I am in the process of repairing my bike from my deer accident and my forks tweaked from the wreck. So I loosened the pinch bolts and pushed the forks down forcefully like on a YouTube video I watched and now everything seems straight? So my question is how do bike shops or professionals usually check the alignment of the front/rear?

    So I hit a deer.

    Everything had scratches my gloves, jacket and my pants. My helmet even has scratches. I need everything new. I would’ve been messed up with nothing on! It does look better washed off, the whole left side of the bike got away with no damage and right side has some rash on the fairing, seat has a small tear, tail fairing some Light scuffs and my rear set is bent. Engine cases are untouched which is nice. scuffs if the radiator tubes going to the water pump. Brake lever got bent where the lever goes into it. Good time to get some 2018 parts I guess and convert.
  10. My bike got a little beat up but I’m ok and I was wearing full gear. so just got some scratches. I hit the deer going about 55 mph I tried to keep up after and ended up falling off the right side and sliding. It ran straight out a ditch in front of me. Couldn’t even react! My poor bike! I’m going to assess what it needs to get back riding again but initial it for sure needs forks and radiator and front fender. seems repairable. Rest is minor stuff.
  11. My oem chain has 17,000 miles on it and I’ve only had to adjust it twice other than during two tire changes. I lube it every time it gets wet and once a week atleast. Still looks new lol. Definitely pays to take care of the chain! I’m interested to see when it actually does start wearing out.
  12. I want to do this so bad. looking fwd to your write up!! Your awesome

    Looking for a stock exhaust

    Newnan Georgia my zip code is 30263
  14. Just as the title says I’m looking to convert my fz-07 back to stock exhaust my m4 is to loud and I commute on my bike 18,000 miles now in a little over a year and it’s driving me crazy as much as I ride. Possibly willing to sell my m4 on top of a trade if anyone is interested.

    Not shifting between gears

    yZEtc this is the symptoms I’m having but my shift lever will not return to that “at rest” position on its own. It just stays up or down after I shift no spring load at all. My local dealer is 2 weeks out to looking at my bike so I might do it myself & it’s my daily transportation and I don’t trust them to say it’s covered by warranty and screw me over. But Basically the right engine case has to come off. Then I have to pull the clutch off and the shift rod is right there on the top left. which I can remove by the clip on the other side and slide the arm out and replace the spring on it #5 on that ipc picture I posted. “Torsion spring” it’s what returns the shifter to that neutral position between shifts.but I’m working the next three days so I’m going to ride it like it is, but if I disassemble it next week I will definitely take pictures. I also just put engine ice coolant in my bike and synthetic oil. That’s 80 dollars right there and they will drain it and put oem coolant and oil back again. Here’s a picture of the rod after it’s removed.
