Riser installation on CRF 300 L

As expected, the bars are a bit too low for riding standing up. And as also expected the cables and wires don’t allow as much rise as I would like. To be on the safe side, I ordered 30mm risers, that after some pre purchase investigation seemed to be a doable amount of rise. The…

Handguard info & warning

Yet another pair of levers

Santa was considerate enough to bring something for me too in the form of new pair of levers. The levers look exactly like the first pair that did, not fit with the exception, that now the pivot bolt holes and thickness are correct. Oh, and they are red. These levers have no branding and are…
