Best CT Mod ever?
on: April 26, 2015, 12:32:36 PM
OK If you could vote / recommend the best 3 mods to the CT, what would they be?

Include anything from mega-expensive shock replacements to the simplest tweak

Crampbuster (throttle rocker or whatever you want to call it) - best $8 farkle.  :028:

English is a tricky language - just consider the difference between "Free Alcohol" and "Alcohol Free".

I always thought a "crampbuster" was Deep Heat or Ralgex.  :745: Sorry Roadrash couldn't resist that.  :028:

Mine would be a duck tail, cheap and effective.

Hi Dave,
1. Spend time setting up the not so brilliant out of the box standard suspension the difference it makes to ride quality and handling is         
    well worth the effort and it's free. Also drop the forks through the yokes to taste 4mm works for me.
2. Fit a candle to the front mudguard, it'll give a better view of the road ahead than the standard headlight.
3. Try setting tyre pressures 38psi rear 33psi front for solo riding.
    Ok take out number 2
2 again Remove the rear preload knob lube and grease the bolt before it gets stiff.
Cheers Blu
