2010 new fork preload adjusters and oil cap

I am not really trying to be the farkle master, but with the amount of add ons fitted to ViVi I guess I will be sticking with her for a long long time!

I fitted new gimmicks on the ViVi, both from ebay shop
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/devilcomponents

Out from Italy. Very nice guy to deal with a really fast shipment.

The fork preload adjusters (pair) will fit in the 19 nut size, match your colour preference,made in aluminium, including a really tiny allen key and bolt to screw in fit sideways. Either on a trip or day to day will save you the hassle of having to use a full torque wrench to fine tune the fork preload (mostly I ride with 1 up or 2 up on the very same day)



Also how could I not order this funny looking oil cap. It has surface side drilling, so if you tight it in using the left over allen key from the preload adjusters my guess is with bare hand nobody will be able to mess with your engine oil (yes it has happened in the past with some fokes, either out of revenge or plain evilness)

Which one did you order? They don't show a preload adjuster for the Versys and I don't see any specs or sizes for any of them.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

There is a drawing in each listing showing the nut size.

Any of these are the 19mm part.

Listing 1
Listing 2
Listing 3
Listing 4

These are an interesting product. Might make me more likely to try to tweak the suspension.

Thanks! I thought that was just some art work on the page!
