The Headlight mod

Hello Adrenaline Junkies!!!

First of all, sorry for keeping a gap in our motorcycle mod series, I had to complete my projects.
Now in this post, we are going to discuss the headlight mod. Now, this is an essential mod because, while riding in the night it is essential that you as a rider get a good view of what is ahead of you and the person opposite to you see you properly as well.

Now using a high beam can give you a good vision of what's ahead of you, but it will lower the vision of the person opposite to you. As a motorcyclist, bad judgment by the car opposite to you can lead to fatal injuries you get, even if it isn't your fault. So it is always important to keep our side clear and not do something that will make the oncoming traffic uncomfortable.

So the most efficient way to do that would be to get a good powered low beam light which will light up the road without blinding the person opposite to you. Now the regular halogen bulbs you see in most motorcycles aren't …

The handle bar and mobile holder mod

Hello adrenaline junkies!!

In this post, we are going to talk about handlebars and mobile holders.

The handlebar mod is preferable for machines with clip-ons. See most supersport model bikes are equipped with clip-on handlebars. While clip-on handlebars give you good leverage around the track, on the city roads in bumper to bumper traffic it will take a toll on your wrists, if your bike has a committed riding position (like the RC390 of R15). So if you are going to be riding your machine in the city most of the time it will be good if you get a handlebar riser and change your clip-ons to a proper handlebar. Even though it's hard to find a custom handlebar raiser here, I have seen many people use handlebar raiser of KTM Duke and RE Himalayan. I would prefer to use the raiser of KTM as it gives a commanding riding position than the Himalayan's. (Note, if you don't find a custom handlebar raiser for your bike then you will probably have to drill through your con-set to fit i…

Tank Grips

Hello Adrenaline junkies,

Now if you are the kind of person who likes to scrape your foot pegs in every corner then this mod is for you. A simple sticker in the tank may seem worthless before you have it installed, but it makes a lot of difference to the way you lean your bike.

The tank grips allow you to stick on to your bike without actually slipping around. This gives you a whole new level of confidence for leaning you bike ( WARNING!!! DON'T CORNER TOO FAR ON PUBLIC ROADS WITH HEAVY TRAFFIC).

I have seen many professional track riders use this mod. They also say it is very useful when it comes to scraping your knees as well. It lets you hold on to your bike with the one leg that's in contact.
( P.S Sorry for concentrating on only sports bikes after this series I will be making content only specially for cruisers (RE in particular)).

I will list below some of the tank grips available in India. you can check it out and find the one suitable for your bike.
