Talking Gitter's 796 build thread

Didn't see a place for build threads, so I figured I'd throw it in here.

Bought the bike 06-01-2012. Almost up to my 600 mile service. Only have a few mods done so far, but figured I would share regardless.

Day I brought her home.


Only mods so far is a comp werkes tail kit, Fresco carbon slip ons (picked up from Motowheels) , and 3" bar end mirrors.



Mirrors are now turned right side up so I can actually see out of them. Love the slip ons, only issue I'm having is when I dont run them with the baffles, sometimes when the bike is cold it will cut out. I'm assuming this is because the bike is running lean. Haven't had any issues once the bike is warm.

Feel free to leave comments // ideas

So far so good!

As for the bike cutting out, it (my 696) did that when I had the stock pipes. It was a little better with the Termi kit, and is a little worse with my latest set of pipes.

From what I understand, they just run lean and thats how it is.

My 796 will sometimes just shut off at the first stop sign in my neighborhood if I don't wait long enough for it to warm up. Goes with the territory I guess. Good lookin bike! The Fresco's look smaller than the Termi's and more like a megaphone, cool look!

That was actually next on my list. Havent really searched how to do it, but it seems like a pretty common mod (for lack of a better term). Can someone give me a quick rundown really quick?

A rundown on the reflectoretomy? Sure.

1) Locate reflectors on the front fork.
2) Grasp the reflector on the top and pull out carefully so as to not break it, the adhesive will slowly pull from the fork.
3) Use warm water and soap and maybe GoofOff to remove the rest of the adhesive from the fork.
4) Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the otherside
5) Wash the bike
6) Enjoy how clean it looks now.

Sounds easy enough. Not to ask the redundant question, but when you say grasp, I'm assuming you mean with pliers. Or is the adhesive soft enough where regular old fingers will do the job. (only reason I ask is because I'm stuck at work right now and cant walk out to the bike and give it a try)

Naw, just use your fingers. Then you won't ruin the edges of the reflectors by grasping them with a metal tool. Just do it carefully, you don't want to break the reflector in half.
