Looking good.

I have a Blueflame exhaust on mine & found a sheepskin to put on the seat for longer rides.

I thought about new footpegs but decided to keep the originals.
No matter how smart you are you can never convince someone stupid that they are stupid.

Some good mods there already An-tonio.  One to think of, up one tooth to 19 on the front sprocket and cut the baffle out of the airbox. The slightly bigger sprocket drops the revs by about 500 in 6th and removing the baffle (plus the TOR map and your new exhaust puts the power back where it was.

Don't try to dismantle the airbox to remove the baffle because the screws are not meant to come out and you'll ruin it. Most folkeither use a Dremel or punch it out in pieces.  If you're worried, I have a,spare box somewhere you can have for the price of posting it.

Thanks Bixxer Bob for your comment.

The airbox mod is in my TODO for the 20mil kms service (I'm now at 14500). Also I already have a new series compu-fure regulator to replace stock one, I prefer to stay safe and it's know as a possible failure in any moment. I also added a VoltMetter to keep an eye con voltage in every moment.

I have also removed the O2 sensor and added mushroom crash protections. The bike is going really fine with 10121_CustomMap, it's addictive.

I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

Want to bring your 955 into the 21st century  :icon_biggrin: fit a 17” front wheel, must be cheaper ways to do it than the Dymags I put in mine 15+ years ago, but the old girl can still do a turn when she has too.

Full floating Beringers also help  :icon_lol:

I'm an off-road guy, the tiger is not for that but... I'm more near an upgrade to 21 than to 17  :wheel
