@Grum yes, both original HISS keys came with the purchase. It may be 21 yo but with <9k miles on the clock, most things are original, hence my efforts . :beer:

 

@bmart It is really easy to do on a 5th Gen. Did it originally on my '08 6th Gen so I thought as I have the airbox off, I might as well. The PAIR delete parts came from a UK seller on ebay, who also sold the voltmeter mount. Also came with nice allen bolts and a rubber bung to plug the hole now in the airbox. The PAIR system puts fresh air into the exhaust flow, I think, to help pass emissions regs. Not needed once on a production bike. Not sure it does that much to the bike, but it's one less thing in the way. Much easier to remove the 2 PAIR valve caps with the airbox off though.

 

There are some Youtube videos but they seem to be mainly 6th Gen and only involve disabling the PAIR, not removing it. 

 

Here's the HEL kit. Sadly no instructions or markings but it should be easy to tell which goes where. Currently struggling to get the pipes free that run across between the front calipers.

If you just want the single-sided mount, then the 6th Gen one actually fits all HISS models, so the last 2 years of 5th Gen as well. This is the one I bought.

 

If it's the PAIR delete, then just scroll down his shop.

 

You'll have to ask him if he posts to Austria, but I'm not sure why he wouldn't.

Thanks for that, it is for the pair delete. I have his advert saved and I messaged him some time ago but he doesn't post to Austria/EU for some reason 😭

Only other option is some dodgy fella from Greece for twice the price!

Could you get them sent to someone in the UK who could then forward them to you? Are there any customs/import reasons why that wouldn't work?

Braided brake hoses fitted. A clutch line was included in the kit too, but that will have to wait for another time. Just the callipers to rebuild then fit and bleed.

Great job Skids, lookin really nice. Glad you got the voltmeter wiring sorted to.

She'll be the envious desire of every 5gen aficionado.

Cheers:fing02:
