SW Motec bar installation insanity
I bought the Motec bars and center stand and spent 6 hours, 3 beers, and two scraped knuckles putting them in last night. Nice to get to know how to dismantle the bike a bit, but one thing that wasn't really covered in the cryptic directions. On the right side, you have the center stand spring braces, and so this little piece is extra on the right side. But the Motec directions don't show how this little piece, and the bars and the footpeg, go together, and also the bolt package doesn't have enough longer bolts to get through all of them. Am I going nuts? I'm no mechanic, but can do the basics, but this thing is confusing.
Secondly, my original spark plug was a NGK DPR8EA with a 9 below that. But the new one they gave me at Kawi is a DP8EA-9 (missing the R). The bike seems to run fine, but any idea why the discrepency, and if this spark plug is right?
Thanks. Having a riot on the bike. Anybody passing through Santa Barbara I'll be glad to show you a few road and off road super rides.
