Accessories C14 / Re: Anyone Have Handguards Installed?
« Last post by ghostrider990 on Today at 02:20:08 pm »
Thanks Cliff.

I know of the ProjectD's, and I also know they don't fit with my XL Wide Calsci.

However, I've been thinking about switching to the MRA Vario for a while now.

Hmmmm. 

I still like the "idea" of the hand guards better -- dunno why.

Maybe I'll just pony-up the $20k for a Ducati or KTM?!  :)

Personally I think I would be looking for bigger instead of smaller if safety is a factor for you instead of looks.  I can never see enough around me and surely wouldn't want to worsen that condition.  But to each his own.. Good luck  ;)

The new CK-4 spec oil has been out since December 2016. There are no updates to T6 since.  Use it!!!

I don't have the hand guards you mentioned. I do have the project D wind deflectors. They get put on when it starts turning cold & remove them in the spring.
They don't look like they would do anything, but they work great IMO. They seem to block wind better than the bark buster hand guards on my V Strom.

I also have the MRA shield which is very small & leave it on year round.

Accessories C14 / Anyone Have Handguards Installed?

Even with a Calsci XL Wide windshield, and heated grips, my hands STILL get cold on chilly days.
I've often thought about adding a set of Handguards to the Connie, but have yet to see or read about where to buy or source a set.

You know what I'm talking about -- like those you see on an ADV bike, big plastic brushguards mounted on the handlebars.  I'd love to add a set like on the Multistrada, that have integrated high-mounted Turn-Signals and Running Lights already embedded!  :great:

I'd like to hear from those that have added these to the connie, and where they sourced the parts!

I waited almost 50,000 miles to change my fork oil. I removed the forks and shipped them off to Traxxion for the AK-20 upgrade. Fresh oil and new suspension.



What'd that cost?

If I remember correctly, it was around $2,100 with a 10% COG discount.  I also got the Rear Penske 8983 at the same time, and it totally transformed the ride.  I had basically the same question as Angelo in his first post, and ended up going with the upgrade.   Since I'm keeping my C-14, I figured why not make it better, along with addressing a maintenance item.

Here is the thread that has all of the details.

Thanks for the info guys.   Yes I guess just feel the need to change out of past habits.  Valve adjust last winter so never got to this. I am at somewhere around 42k miles.  So just assumed past due.  No negative warning signs but you know how wear items - like fork oil- kind of steadily degrade and it creeps up on us without noticing.  Until one addresses and we hear singing in the vast improvement.
