    Booked my R26 in with Chris at EFI Parts for a custom remap in April. Looking forward to seeing how his map compares to the KTR map that's currently on it. Also looking forward to having a fully working fuel gauge again as KTR never mapped the 630cc injectors in correctly...

    After the palaver I had yesterday with my swivel bearings on the R26, I thought I’d try and do something a little more productive.

    As it was still up on axle stands, I replaced my lower engine mount with a standard febi part......wish I’d have got a polyurethane insert for it though.....It feels like there’s too much engine movement when coming on/off throttle and the new mount has only made a negligible difference. (Already done the gearbox mount but the top mount and upper stabiliser still to do).

    I still wasn’t happy with the last couple of days efforts so I decided it was finally time to replace my PATHETIC horn.

    I’ve not pipped at any knobheads for almost a year ha ha ha - It was just too embarrassing!

    So, I’d picked one up from the scrappy a while back.

    [​IMG]

    I was very impressed with how easy the bumper was to remove. It was a bit fiddly to get back on but still straightforward.

    I was concerned when I realised that my meg had a double horn and the one from the scrapyard (std spec meg, few years older) was a single.

    Anyway, it swapped over without any problem and is waaaaaaay better!

    Watch out, knobheads!

    Like Leigh my horn packed up, I also think the oem one is rubbish so decided on fitting twin air horns. Less than £30 from Halfords.
    They work a treat, nice and loud! Watch out middle lane hoggers.[​IMG]
