650 Twin - Interceptor/GT / Re: Hagon 2810 shocks?
« Last Post by GSS on Today at 04:26:15 am »
Hagon shocks were a very nice rear end improvement on my C5. The US distributer puts together the correct length and springs and used to offer 1 free spring swap if the original set was too firm or soft. I would have no hesitation in trying a set for my interceptor.

Bullet Iron Barrel / 535 upgrade
« Last Post by Warwick on Today at 03:13:37 am »
I am about to begin a 535 upgrade on my bullet as its done over 20,000 kms in standard trim. I am getting the alloy barrel, forged piston, roller bearing, etc. This is the second bike, I have done it to (with the much required assistance of a mate). The first one I went the whole hog with ported head, big valves, etc etc. Great result with increased performance. The only negative is some piston slap and the engine feels way less refined as you really feel each combustion bang. After a 2 years riding all mud guard stays and indicator fittings have broken.  I am not complaining as thats what I expected and its fun. In an attempt to tone it down a bit and be a bit cheaper, I am keeping standard valves, oil pumps, rockers (depending on wear and condition) and minor porting.  Any thoughts or advice?
Cheers and beers

Right there with you! In my 60s with 29" inseam. I also think reservoirs don't belong on these bikes. I waded through the Hagon website until I got lost and fed up. Can you tell the exact shock/shroud combo you bought? Thanks!
If you call them, they will ask you all the key questions and configure up what you need.

I have changed mine again but I had the same idea for the rear. I used bar end LEDs in the stock holes. I also used a smaller taillight. The stock one will hide your signals when viewed from behind.
True that. I'll be getting a "oldy" taillight. I got the marker lights because I couldn't find a red bar end. I'll also fit a Blinker Genie so that the rear turn signals act as running lights as well.

Have seen a few negative reports on tec shocks. Fillingham put YSS on his 650 and rates them highly, he put Hagons on his T120 a while back and rated them highly also. For such a new bike we have quite a choice, if you go to Hagon's website (not the clearest perhaps) there is a phone number and they will make shocks for your weight. OK they may not have a great range of adjustment.
I bought some of their all stainless shrouded shocks for my chrome Interceptor ( I like the 1970 Series 2 look), they made them 20mm shorter (29" inside leg). I wanted them for the looks, I'm in my 60s and pleasantly surprised that a m/c with less power than any I've had in 30 years is so enjoyable. The damping is noticeably better so I have a YSS kit for the front as this is shown up by the Hagons.
I'm sure there are better still but I don't need them, they look great, work well and are inexpensive.

I just ordered these. They are "marker" lights for motorhomes. I'm hoping that they will fit right into the holes on the tail light bracket (with no stem).
$8 usd for 5 red and 5 amber

Do not know where they are made but the company is from NJ.

If they don't workout, I guess I could just buy a motorhome ;).

I'm much more likely to ditch the kickstarter than the electric!
I'm scouring eBay for 2nd hand silencers (and fork braces... and plastic  chainguards...)
It came with the Hitchcock Stage 1, so the downpipe has already been swapped.
