    Very nice! Which windscreen is that? ZG double-bubble?
  2. Amazing work, Seb! Do you have a website aside from IG? How many of these projects do you do for yourself, vs for customers?
  3. Wow, this looks fantastic! I'm so impressed by people who can just dive into rusted metal like that and come up with a fix. What'd you use on the clutch slave? Just cleaning with brake cleaner or something, or did it go into the blasting cabinet, too?
  4. I went for a ride today for a few hours, and it was pretty chilly (40s to low-50s). The Koso Apollo grips worked great, and the heat seems to feel more even side-to-side than the Oxfords. I also noticed that the left grip can be turned on the bar, now: perhaps a fitting approach would be to put the left bar in the freezer and run the grip until it's hot? Or maybe just not fit them when it's above 85? 😁
  5. I've got Oxford Heaterz on my Africa Twin. They work fairly well, but I find the controller obnoxiously large. On my VFR (5th gen, stock clip-ons, I think) I have Koso Apollo grips, which have a button on the left grip to control the heat levels. I haven't ridden on cold days on the VFR, yet, but it seems to me they work better than the Oxford grips. The left one was particularly difficult to get on. I do have a tendency to hit the button accidentally, but that's a trade-off I'm willing to make to not have more junk in the cockpit. They ostensibly have two models: one in 120mm and the other in 130mm. But only the 130mm ones are available in the US. They're a little longer than ideal for my bike, but have worked fine.
