    The original REH aluminium panniers were supposedly retail at about 25-30k for the pair. Had read about it quite some months ago. The dirtsack ones are slightly smaller I believe and cost about 18k. Have no idea what RE is waiting for. Just fyi, the helmets that RE sells is manufactured by Vega.

    Sweet looking mods.

    What are the technical haggles you faced, if any while installing the LED lights? Wattage rating of the bulbs? Other suggestions?

    Mods required to the battery or relays?

    How is the illumination and light beam throw on lit and unlit streets? Any pictures will be greatly appreciated.

    I'm a total noob on this matter, so kindly bear with me.

    Cheers and regards,
    Safe riding!

    Well..Initially, I wanted to get the LEDs installed around the number plate so that i could use them when i turn my handle..(doesnt make much diff though).. However, the extra lever that can be added to extend beyond number plate touches the side grill that holds the head lamp and the RE symbol. Hence, had to drop that thought.

    I had to settle down with the option of removing the yelanki screws and get the longer bolts to fit the LEDs as the clamps needed some extension to firmly sit on.

    Mods do not need any battery changes/relays. These consume very less battery, hence i dont think so we need to worry about the battery changes much..

    I have posted few images with the LEDs on earlier (few days back).. That should give you a rough idea as to how the LEDs glow.. I get more than good amount of light on the road when i light the LEDs..

    Cheers,
    Praveen

    True that LEDs consume a lot less energy than conventional bulbs. It is quite relaxing to know that they are a direct fit and need no mods.

    Which ones are these? What is the wattage rating? Any link to the product description page? Any other alternative if you want even more light?

    I saw the images, but I'm more curious about the beam spread and range on the road in unlit and lit conditions.

    I forgot the brand and the wattage rating for the LEDs.

    There are few alternatives if you are looking for more light. The one that I have in my RE are the single LEDs. There are also a double LEDs ones available. I did not like the look on my bike so went for the single LEDs. However, I have taken a pic comparing the looks of both single and double LEDs before fitting on my bike.Below is the pic ..


    You also get square shaped ones which are quite often seen on bullets and classic bikes..

    Just giving an update after completing 1000kms successfully. The bike is running smooth without any major issue, the suspension is good, tyres are doing well, engine is running smooth etc. A few things that I did notice are,

    1. The suspension is really good, takes care of all the bumps and doesn't let me feel anything at all. Rather I feel, in wet mud it is the best, more than on tarmac roads. The engine has been doing pretty well, rugged as hell. It heats in traffic and gives me assurance that it is doing completely fine.
    2. The upshifting of gear is really smooth with no noise nothing, but when I downshift, it's a bit tough. I have to apply little more pressure, once or twice when stationery and I put the 1st gear it resulted in a "thud". Finding neutral is really easy irrespective of whether the bike is in motion or is standing still.
    3. Do check and tighten all the screws regularly. Today morning while I was inspecting & cleaning my bike, I noticed that the screws which hold the mudguard of the front wheel (the lower one) were loose.
    4. The back wheel locks. Happened 2nd time for me. I was riding on a service road (50-60kmph)and an XUV guy was cutting in from the highway (he was coming in the opposite direction as mine). I hard braked and the rear wheel locked, it skid, but I didn't feel I lost control of the bike. It's good that I am not losing control of it, but it doesn't give me the confidence to ride at a higher speed. I am trying to brake 70-30 and also trying threshold braking, but there are just times when I instinctively hard brake. It's fine as long as I am riding alone, but what if I am with a pillon and I face a situation? Is it because of the brake pads? Tyre? Need some guidance here.
    5. One another problem I had was, the headlight throw was pretty low, hardly could see anything on roads with no streetlights. Have changed the headlight to Phillips, let's see how that holds up. But one question I had was, what should I do if the person coming in opposite direction is driving/riding on a high beam. I am literally blinded and couldn't figure out what to do apart from slowly down my speed. Any suggestions?
    6. Have taken out the windshield, for now, let me see if it helps me by not having a mini-typhoon inside my helmet.
    7. My saddle stay frames are here, will get them fixed on Sunday. Will try to re-route the clutch cable to make it a little less hard on my fingers (esp. in traffic)

    Cheers

    Hello Riders!!!!

    Can anyone help me with any contacts or stores in Bangalore where I can get a saddle stay fixed, any inputs will be highly appreciated..

    PS :- I checked one of the guys called MotoKraft based in Vijaynagar but he qouted about 6.5k for just saddle stay, his work was good but 6.5k for just saddle stay for me it was way out of my budget (I'm not a rich kid.. )..

    Regards,

    Hey Jillton,

    I got my saddle stays from a person in another location. He couriers it at an additional charge of 250rs. Overall it cost me 1550/- and took about 4 days to get delivered. Let me know if you need further details, will share the details of the person and a few pictures of other riders who have fixed saddle stays.

    Cheers!
