Well - despite the
wind and temperature this morning and the sun being out, which makes it seem a tad warmer, decided that I must do something to the CT.
So fitment of the Frame Bungs and Bolt Caps was on the cards. Not a hard job at all !!!
. You would think ? The instructions suggested a few drops of Super Glue to keep all in place. Bolt caps went on nice and easy. No problems. Frame Bungs slight problems. Remember that when I made the purchase from the US site. I ordered Bungs/Caps for the VFR 1200F. None yet made for the VFR 1200X. I thought that the frame might be the same, but it would appear - NOT SO! Every ONE of the Frame recesses on the CT and the Bungs received are a slightly different size. Also the largest recess on the Offside (UK roads !!!) the main frame bolt end does extend a couple of mm's and does not allow the Bung to fully seat within the frame. Hoping you are understanding what I mean. No problems with the 2 smaller frame bungs tho.
Anyway with some judicious applications of Super Glue all the Bungs are fitted. How long they will stay there, only time will tell.
. Pics of before and after are in my gallery, and I will now attempt to attach them to this post.
Seems that the After pics are before the Before pics - but what the
IMHO They DO improve the Look of the CT.
Having started farkling, then decided to fit the SW Motech Engine Guard. Sun went in! Wind got up! Temp went down to 2C. So I Gave Up. Now a job quarter done. Always tomorrow !!! ??? But now have to finish fitment before I can ride.
