Modifications, Accessories, and Appearance / Fork reflector removal
« Last post by figbat on Today at 02:36:16 pm »
Does anybody know why the fork reflector is on these bikes everywhere?  As far as I know this is not a requirement for most countries - the US is the place I most associate with these ugly tack-ons.  Before I remove mine, does anybody have any advice or wisdom about it?  It seems odd that an OEM is adding them to bikes that don't need them, when OEMs are famous for holding back on any little thing that adds cost, time or complexity to production.
Damn, never noticed that they are different before, and now I have to replace them, thanks!

I would bet they are plug and play.
Today out of a blue traffic started to work on the Android app 🤷‍♂️ No updates or anything.

I have a theory that they allow traffic info only on one device registered to the VIN. So since my iPhone was the first one Iíve connected to the bike - it had traffic access. Last week they have released version 5.0 for iOS and iOS  moved to the RTTI traffic info, which freed up a regular traffic info license for the Android device to use.

But thatís just a theory.
Btw, audio instructions still work for me.
Has anyone here ever converted the tail light adapter on a U.S. model 900 XR to a European version?   I have SW Motech side case mounts that partially mount on the tail light of a European model but have a bike sold in the U.S.

Thanks in advance for any advice/assistance.
Cheers, now to see if I can work out what hard case pannier and rear sport track options are compatible :087:

Maintenance and Servicing / How to replace rubber on footpegs
« Last post by Piks on June 01, 2023, 08:09:36 pm »
Does anyone know on how to replace rubber inserts on footpegs? Mine have started to tear off on the left side, I bought a pair at my dealer, but I am not sure on how to replace - there seem no screws or anything similar. Is there any trick there? Thanks!
