Going to dump mods and thoughts here, so I can find later :)

no good pics yet but, not many mods either.
Have taken off pillion pegs, put on seat cowl (no + model in Australia), and added S3 Performance bar end mirrors ($125-140 through Ebay) they are well made and all alloy. 60x110mm glass, so a bit small, but see hwo they go

smaller than stock, but sit just that much further out (turned in) or a lot more (turned out)
if they turn out to be not good enough, will buy the larger OEM Triumph mirrors from Street/Speed RS (OEM are T2060666, and bigger than their aftermarket ones, but plastic shell)

note that stock mirrors and their locknuts are LEFT HAND threads, but the adapter into the clamp are RIGHT HAND threads

to remove stock weights, there is a tab top and bottom that needs to be pushed in a little and then it slides out.
on LHS, just peel back the grip a little, push in the tabs, and pull out th einternal bar weight
on RHS, need to remove mirror/brake clamp and pull forward, unscrew front cover of switch block (2 black screws), unscrew the 4 silver screws inside (not the funny looking one at the top), then slid off the throttle tube, push in the tabs, and pull out the internal bar weight

need to get M8x1.25x15 button head socket screws for the pillion peg holes, and M10x1.25(?)x15 for capping the mirror post holes.
then another 3 M8's for the swingarm number plate bracket for when that comes off..


now looking at Pro-Bolt aluminium dome head socket screws... Exspendy tho! but pretty... ($31 for 9 bolts.. and abot same price in every country?)

Looks good mate, bar end mirrors make a real difference aesthetically and practically, Honda should have made similar stock I think. BTW, how much was the rear cowl and did you buy it through a Aus dealer or online?

yeah, mirrors look way better, but almost all the aftermarket ones are too small (these are slightly larger than average). the Triumph OEMs bar end mirrors are about as big as the stock honda ones, and must be ADR.
big bar ends don't look so sexy, and maybe they thought a harder sell?

I bought QS and Seat Cowl as part of original purchase, from the dealer...
seat cowl was $315.70
Quickshifter was $960.30 (not fitted)

i really didn't get a discount overall ($275?) but tbh i didn't really care :p partly because the Aus base price is not bad, and.. wayyy cheaper than the SPeedy RS.

got prices for all the other acc as well, but can't remember exactly...
heated grips were around $500
visor was? 200 or 300

fair to say the dealer was generally shocked at the accessory prices... both retail and their cost price!


ed: also noticing the cowl rubs on the seat... wonder if it will damage it over time? may need to get a little foam taken out from where they touch

Wow, those prices are outrageous. Interested in the QS but not for $960, is the installation and configuring straight forward?

yeah, eye watering eh? would not have purchased later, but could turn blind eye at point of sale


the cowl is light and.. almost flimsy.. and if it damages the main seat i'll be pissed... but, looks good

Cowl also means no tail pack, but am planning to make a tail pack adaptor using the cowl attachment point dimensions.. so can just click it on when needed.

QS installation
http://powersports.honda.com/documentum/MW01/08U70-MKJ-D00.pdf
not convinced the tank needs to come totally off.. depends on size of hands?
apart from tank, it looks pretty easy, and instructions have enough pictures


For initialisation, check out this video for a visual guide

you do need to bridge the DLC connector, but that's green and light green wires so is easy.
Have tried to cheaply source a Sumitomo MT or HM 090 4 pin plug, but shipping is like $20 for outside Oz
(or china for 5 connector sets, delivered by November..)

I did look at other QS options (HM, Healtech, Dynojet, and a few others), but not all of them are up and down, and some need like PCV module to do it, and some connect direct to coils or injectors....
I figured at least the Honda one is both ways, and it is the ECU itself doing the cut, not extra wires on coils.
The OEM is not (EDiT: it IS a blipper) a downshift blipper, but it really doesn't need blipper with such a slick close ratio box.

I was going to wait to install later but..... hmmm.. effect on warranty? warranty of the QS itself? think they were going to charge about $300 to fit.... decisions...

This is the plug need to get to for QS install, could do with just raising tank i think.
this is just looking in, nothing unbolted

and.. mirrors :) mirrors3.jpg

I should mention... absolutely no mirror vibration that I have noticed yet.
very impressed with the quality of the S3 mirrors.. just wish the glass was about 1cm wider and taller for a better view

They certainly are and that QS---------------WOW.

With a bit of practise it's easy to get the gear change down to a tenth of a second anyway.----------------:banana

695 euros in France.. (page 18)
i did think the $500 (360 euro) heated grips were a bit rude.... especially when Oxfords are $150, and i'd like to change grips to be a bit longer anyway

yes, downshift on closed throttle is no issue, and upshift is not that hard either... but after test riding a few bikes with QS.. i couldn't not get it if an option :) and full power shift is so much fun :yay

is also about preventing clutch hand from getting tired on a long day as well.. no need to squeeze clutch as much during day.. until crappy traffic jams on the way home.

Are the prices on Honda France "ride away"? ie with registration and basic insurance?

consider this... France, with seat cowl and quickshifter.AUD$22.8. vs AUD$18.5K in Aus....
even with the outrageous Australian accessory prices, France is still $4300 more expensive for same bike...
so was not too worried about QS price.. base price for non + version in Aus is keenly priced!

Probolt aluminium dome head socket screws ordered for blanking mirror post holes, pillion mount holes, and swingarm holes...
spendy, but less likely to cause long term corrosion than sticking in steel or stainless ones..

Evotech radguard fitted.

still waiting on levers.. sheesh...



\/\/\/ that is a good idea :)

for Honda parts, need 2 of "Holder" = 45518-MFN-D01 = US$7 each so probably AUD$20 each :p

I had ordered and installed a set of cheap mirror mount clamps from eBay, removed the OEM mirror post clamps and used only one side of the clamps. Worked well enough.

size of inserts to fill swingarm pivot points. (maybe slightly undersize to fit in)

Have ordered Constands centre stand anyway :)

thanks Mate!
we have some pretty photogenic spots around here, just need to get out there at the right time... and after a few more mods


I think it will look better with one of these (for about $560-580 AUD!!)

Edit: should be locally available for AUD$690.. maybe worth the difference to get the ADR approval sticker
