WK400 owners thread. 3 months, 2 weeks ago #540572

Can't see one that has been started so here yer go.
Links to sites that specialise, upgrades even if DIY. Deals (of which there seem to be a few at the moment.




NB ..Really like this bike and as I stand (well just about) massive off road expeditions won't be happening for me any time soon as I seem to be growing as mechanical as the damn bike.
So please convince me
"The trails of the world be countless, and most of the trails be tried.
You tread on the heels of many, till you come where the ways divide.
And one lies safe in the sunlight, and the other is dreary and wan, Yet you look aslant at the Lone Trail, and the Lone Trail lures you on....
....Bid good-bye to sweetheart, bid goodbye to friend, The Lone Trail, the Lone Trail, follow to the end.
Tarry not, and fear not, chosen of the true;
Lover of the Lone Trail, The Lone Trail waits for you"

Ok. I am having problems posting for some reason so going to try doing one photo at a time to see if it works!!

So have now managed to fit a few farkles to the WK.

First of all I spray painted the clear screen as I prefer it black to 'hide' the sat nav sitting behind.

Ordered a pair of hand guards (£30) off ebay and fitted a set of the Barkbusters led strip lights that I took off the KTM. I wasn't sure when I ordered the guards if the led's would fit the shape of a non Barkbusters guard but I am pleased with the result as it all fitted really well. I just had to drill a hole for the wiring and then because the led's are specific to the Barkbusters I couldn't mount them with the rear bracket as it wouldn't fit these guards. So I carefully lined them up and cable tied them into position, and left a small gap so I could pour in some Q-Bond powder and glue them on. Also used a little bit of black RTV silicone on the rear to hold the wiring in place.

Also fitted a set of the Oxford Touring grips. These are a perfect diameter and length for the WK bars. In fact they are such a good fit that I didn't need to use the glue. I have used them at the weekend and there was no slippage so hopefully I won't need to take them back off to glue them. Also means as a tight Scotsman I can take it all back off when I sell the bike

In the above picture you can also see a new foam bar pad as the original is kind of an off white/creamy colour and looked a bit shit.

Try that one more time........

Re: WK400 owners thread. 3 months, 2 weeks ago #541194

One of the features I really like on this bike is the fact that they fitted a small bar above the clocks for attaching GPS or other devices. On the bar I have a TomTom rider and also a 12V/USB power socket.

IMG_20161010_110229518_HDR.jpg


The TomTom and 12V/USB are wired to this switch on the handlebar brace which means the TomTom is not coming on every time I turn the ignition, and there is no chance of the 12V/USB socket draining the battery.

Also have the luggage sorted out but will stick that on another thread as not sure if that would be a farkle?

Check your rear brake light switch wiring is not touching the exhaust as it could burn through, this is hidden behind the righthand side panel

Reroute away from exhaust
