pattonme's build

Recommended Posts

I guess I'll put this here. Doesn't seem to be a dedicated section for builds. (or should we use the Gallery for that?)
 
TODO: link to Gallery thread
 
Background:
[ul type=disc][*]2016 Raven[*]4K miles[*]ex-Fusbal's bike[/ul]
Upgrades:
[ul type=disc][*]Mivv Speed Edge Exhaust[*]Denali D2 Fork-mounted Accessory LEDs[*]ECU flashed by 2 Wheel Dyno Works
[*]CRG Arrow Bar End Mirrors w/Rhino Adapters[*]Motodynamic Integrated LED Tail Light/Rear Turn Signals
[*]TST Flush-mount LED Front Turn Signals
[*]SW-Motech Center Stand
[*]Frame/Fork/Spool Sliders[*]Yoshimura Tail Tidy
[/ul][div]
[/div]

In any event, first short ride this morning on my new steed.  
ECU/FI - no hunting, good roll-on, pretty darn good on/off
Exhaust - very quiet with baffle in. very unobtrusive and won't piss off the neighbors during warm up. My Yosh Race can on the SV650, not so much!
 
Suspension - rear shock is definitely the much weaker component. Forks have no rebound.

How do you like those arrow bar ends over stock? I keep going back and forth on if I want a set. I love the look but to my surprise the stock mirrors actually work(On the ninja not so much)

I got the bike as-is so have nothing else to compare it to. surprisingly usable though despite their small size.

@pattonme will you be using it as a platform to try out some of the suspension options? I know KDS may have been on your list of one of the fork kits you wanted to get your hands on

Very quiet on this thread pattonme. I was looking forward to your efforts as I suspect they will be well thought out and you aren't afraid to experiment . Been too busy?
