New mods on my 848!

leave a comment »

I mentioned yesterday that my 848 received some new mods lately. Mainly I purchased hand controls, foot controls, and other related items. The hand controls are from ASV Inventions. They have good build quality come in a color I want, black, and they pretty indestructable. Great hand controls, easy to pull, light on the fingers.

My foot controls are Sato Racing rear sets. These controls make life simple. I keep my brake light and they were simple to install. I purchased the type 2 controls. I didn’t want 848 on the controls, which is the Type 1 model. They are also black, yes I am keeping with my StormTrooper theme. The only thing not black on my foot controls are the titanium bolts on them.

My other new items are from Renthal. I got a 520 chain conversion and new sprockets. They eliminated my sixth gear issue, which was just for cruising. Now it’s an actual useful gear on the track. Which is great!
