MT Wintermoden

Winterzeit ist mal wieder Zeit zum Basteln! Silke hat sich von SW-Motech einen neuen Heckträger bestellt – der Originale hat für Gepäck eine störende Kante und do e Lösung von Motech sah zumindest im Katalog vernünftig aus.

Der Anbau gestaltet sich relativ einfach – da bei der Street Rally ja schon der Original Heckträger von Yamaha verbaut war, mussten auch in die Verkleidung keine weiteren Löcher gebohrt werden. Der alte Träger wird durch Lösen von 4 Schrauben vom Rahmen gelöst – einfacher geht es nun echt nicht. Die neuen Anbauteile fügen sich willig an die richtige Position und der neue …

GB Racing Parts

Ja, die Abdeckungen von GB Racing machen schon was her. Heute an Silkes MT etwas gebastelt um die kleinen Kratzer vom letzten Umfaller zu kaschieren. Die Abdeckung sah schon vorher gut aus und jetzt am Mopped macht das einen echt hochwertigen Eindruck. Alle Daumen hoch dafür!

Last Tour to Rhön Region

The last (little longer) Tour für 2018 will takes us to Hotel Sturm into the Rhön Region. On Sonday at best weather conditions we drove both MT’s from Bielefeld to Mellrichstad which is about 300km  of distance. Two wonderful nights in the “Organic Hotel” Sturm with a great Wellness Area included. Relaxing.

That was really necessary, because the ride back is really rough. Temperatures between 3-8°C and rain making the ride difficult and long. I really regret that i did not already equip the MT with the heatable gloves. But this is going to change rapidly!

Recovered

After a long Year with terrible coughing and bad driving experience Silke smiles again. One Year, where the MT was bucking, sometimes did not respond at all to release very rough the power. Sometimes the bike was dying at low RPM.

Reason for all that was a little Potentiometer, which determines the Position of the throttle. (Ride-by-Wire concept). In some Forums and on Facebook people complained about the bucking, however we could not find any hints that this beasty Poti could cause all that trouble.

A Gimbal

Sorry, what?

Well, i just bought a Gimbal. For those who have no clue what i am talking about: A gimbal is a technical device that keeps a camera stable. With the gimbal i hope to get a new camera perspective at the race track.

I decided for the WG2 from Feyiu Tech, because the price is just really good. The first impression after unpacking the WG2 is, that it looks like a top-quality product. The supporting arms are mad of black (anodized?) metal. The gimbal just has one button to switch on/off and offers some other functions as well.…

New Mounting Stand

..is now ready to use!

The idea is basically pretty cool – unfortunately in the real world there is a lack of quality. The mounting stand itself is very stable. But when it was delivered, there was a  wrong item and after i complained and got the correct one the accuracy of the bore holes on the baseplate is really bad.

With a little bit of crafting is was able to change that and now the entire bike – including  the front tire is lifted off the ground. WIth this the bike can be balanced easily in the Garage – …
