Some of my modifications

Here's a video with some of my modifications. Most of these are quite inexpensive.


If you have any questions, let me know

Bike looks great.Nice professional paint job and the rear BM Badge looks like it came with the bike.Not sure I'd have the patience or inclination for the exhaust wrap but hey each to their own.Totally agree with the (to me) daft position of the electrical socket.
Not sure if these are the connectors you mentioned so here's a linkhttp://uk.farnell.com/c/connectors/p...con-1.2-series

exhaust wrap is a must with this kind of exhaust pipe, well done!

Why is exhaust wrap a must? its not as if the exhaust is exposed- meaning it could burn your leg like on some trials bike?

well, the simmering hot metal of the pipe, being so close to the suspension (as well as to other cables, pipes, gizmos etc.)is like asking for trouble..a bit of insulation can be valuable..

Like I said in the video, I don't know if the wrap does much, but I like the look of it compared to the skinny header tube. I removed the exhaust and header to wrap the header, and sealed it with high temp clear coat.
