WEll, my instal is finally done. Had some issues with the S4 since the brake line has a 90 degree banjo. THANK YOU CYCLE BRAKE. They made me a custom line, and I had it the next day !!!


Chris Kelly, thank you for the clutch springs. Thay mad ea huge difference from my rusted 3 year old springs. So now at 3K, I don;t feel like stalling. It took me more time figuring out the following:

Next thred./.....

I just could not figured this one out.....



Then it hit me, the package contained TWO left side heel guards. Even though it had been check as 1 left, 1 right. Oh well, everyone makes mistakes. Hopefully I can return the spare left one and get the correct right one.

Very very nice S4. I'm soo jealous!!

Shoot the folks at CycleCat a line at [email protected]. When I received my frame sliders, one of the nuts was too big, so I sent them some mail Friday afternoon. Alfred himself emailed me back that night!! Customer service was excellent and they arranged to ship me a new nut in excahnge for the old.

I am sure you won't have any problem getting the correct heal guard, sorry about the mistake. But while you don't seem upset you should not have had to replace the brake line. Cycle Cat kits either use the stock brake line or come with new ones included. I am afraid I don't know which in your case. Please contact Alfred on Monday let him know what you found. I personally don't like the way your rear brake line runs in the picture above it appears too short. The line should run forward all the way around the end of the swingarm then back to the caliper or turn 90 degrees at the master and run straight back along the swingarm and then up to the caliper.

Nice Mods S4_Newbie!

It looks like your S pipe is crushed.....Did you have to do that for the install? I've got Sil-Motor high pipes (round) with a generic Spareshack rearset (not nearly as nice as your Cyclecats) and I had plent of clearance.............Just curious as I've been conteplating some Cyclecat rearsets.

No, teh S-pipe comes like that from Sil motors. Its flat on both side sof the motorcysle. Can;t really see it once the guard gets on there.

As for the brake line, I'm not sure you , as this is pretty much how it was ran before. Actually, the stock line was even shorts. It ran 90 degrees fron the master cyclinder up (but it was mousnted differently), but it did not run all the way down the end of the swing arm and back. what is hte difference ? The caliper itself is not moving. THe swing arm moves up and down, this only point where it moves is near the rear set.
