Got the hugger from Twinshack in England

http://www.twinshack.co.uk/prods/126.html

I believe it is the same as the one made / offered by Poly26 in France.

Painted it myself ( got a colour match done on the paint and a spray can made up). I am not very skilled at painting. It turned out ok.

Very easy to install. Would definately recommend lock-tite on the bolts as I lost the 2 orginals whilst riding. ( you will need on extra M6 bolt)


Got the Ermax undertail from an Motorcycle Parts importer in Quebec.

http://www.csmeca.a3w.net/DetailElem...Rubrique=47178

This one had to be painted as well. Went with an industrial grade flate black topped off with a clear reflective coating spray.

This one was a PIA as the signal light needed to be mounted ( ie., holes drilled through the plastic and position in place).

Also, I could not find the connectors for the wiring and I did not want to cut the stock connectors so I crimped and soldered some pin and spade connectors. Had to reverse the wiring after the first attempt because the LEDs will only work when wired properly (++, --, I think?)

Also, had to bend the license plate mount. I managed to screw this up (it is angled a little, thankfully not notiecable). The license plate mounting holes did not line up with the holes on my plate ( I did try the mounting bracket from the stock fender, but pushed the plate in front of the plate light), so I drilled a couple of new holes in my license plate.

All said and done, I am satisfied with the look of bike.

I picked up the Cherry Bomb muffler from NAPA Autoparts they got it from Zoro Muffler and got the connecting adapter pipe from Canadian Tire (like a PEP Boys). I struggled with Muffler tip. I tried to have one custom made but it was too much back and forth to the muffler shop, so I orderd a tip ffrom Versys08 on the forum. This job was not that easy for me. I lost the custom tip a couple of time and the muffler separated from the header once. I did finally get all secure and have put on about 3000 KM without any problems with the muffler set up. I do love the sound of the bike now. I am still seriously considering going to the Arrow Exhaust System.

I now understand why it is called farkling.
Cheers,
Colin
