Soon to be wrenched here at W'nR'n.. Its 40 years old and Asian to boot.

Since I sold my R100 BM that I was bobbing I have been wanting another bike to wrench away on. I can't help but fiddle with these confounded two wheeled contractions. I love the bloody things.

I have just purchased a Honda CL450K5 off a mate, Ken aka Youngduffer. It has a seized engine. Spark plug broke off and dropped into the engine. Have no idea how bad this will be. I really don't care as I have the nouse to fix it. Pulled enough engines down to know what to do.

So do I cafe it or bob it? Or maybe a mix of both? Brat it. Will decide when it gets here in a few weeks time.

Here is what it looked like when it was bought by Ken.

The latest message I got from this person is they have no record of the item. I have had enough. Below is a copy off all the messages between us,

Danmoto clip-ons done proper like..

When I took delivery of my Danmoto clips-ons they sent me one clamp that was the wrong size. While the replacement was on its way i played around with this set up. "DanMoto Clip-ons done different..."

Today the replacement clamp arrived. So I fitted them the way they are intended to be done.



They feel great. Just a bit lower than the OEM bars. Yet I can adjust them in so many ways to suit. 

Took the bike out for a bit of a blat and the mirrors do not blur at all now. Vibes are being soaked up by the forks. Hard revs and I get a tingle through the bars.

They are wider than my fake Jota bar setup. I am very surprised with how comfortable they are.

New name for da blog..

Ross' motorcycle Blog was so 2012. Time for a new name. Seeing as I do more modding of my bike of late, thought the new title kinda suits what I have up here.

DanMoto Clip-ons done different...

I had a brain wave. Or brain fart, depends on how you see what I have done. Instead of mounting these clip-ons to the forks I played around with some old Renthal bars by cutting them up and fitting the clip-ons to these. I have made my own set of Jota Bars. Adjustable as anything.

I will carry an allen key with me till I get the bars set in just the right position.

The way I have them they are way narrower than the OEM bars. Which I really like the feel of so far.

The only down side is to have them any higher will need a longer brake line.

DanMoto clip-ons.....

I have decided to get clip-ons for the Bandit. As much as I like the Renthal Ultra Low bars I am searching for more comfort. Less vibration through my hands.

So after reading some reviews on the DanMoto clip-ons and seeing as they are around $100 I thought I would give them a go.

Yes I know they are made in China. Hey come on Kawasaki make some of their 650 Twins in Indonesia and sell them around the world. Yes i know that some of the first batch of these clip-ons had some breaks under heavy braking. That was a few years back now and I have yet to any feedback since then to suggest that they are still crap. So I thought I would give them a go.

I ordered them just as Chinese New year was happening. So had to wait for that to finish and then they were sent via EMS. Real quick postage this. I had them within 4 days. Open the packet and find they sent one fork clamp that was way to big for my forks. Quick emails between me and them and they have sent me a replacement clamp no questions asked.

So while I wait on this to arrive I thought I would do a "dry" fit of the one I have that will fit. I replaced all the hex bolts supplied with stainless steel ones. The ones supplied were, well, a bit not so good.
I will pass judgement when I have them fully fitted and have had a bit of a spin on the bike to see how they feel.
