T-Mod variation

Here is my T-Mod. (1st )I removed the helmet lock mount from the frame.

(2nd) Then wrapped the frame with tape where I decided to make my cut. I picked the spot closest to the main frame as I could. My thought was to try and eliminate some of the fender gap area under the seat that some people talk about and fender bulging. It worked.

(3rd) I only marked out a 3/16ths wedge Per: MFR. I then took a straght edge and a razor blade and cut my mark through the tape in to the frame Press hard. that way i would not loose my marks while cutting. (removed tape)

(4th) I used a cut off wheel and sawzall and was very careful to take out only 3/16ths this gave me a total of 1-7/8 drop. "take note that the hole is directly in the center of the weld (pic#6) will need re-drilled to re-install the damping rubber."

Conclusion and test ride: Bike looks Frickin Awesome! Took it out for a test ride and no rubbing with stock T-light, w/beaver removed. put the old lady on it, cranked up the spring tension/damping knob to 3/4 and test rode. Small pot holes, bumps and cracks did not make the bike rub. But a huge short dip at a intersection made the bike bottom out and rub lightly. I can live with that. I weigh 195lb and the woman is around 125lb. (update I adjusted the rebound and the pre-load on my shock a have had no rubbing in over 2500 miles)

(Pic#1= Before) (Pic#2=after T-Mod) (Pic#3 Side by side comparison)
(Pic#4&%=helmet lock tab) (Pic#6=Weld and cut location) (Pic#7=fender and frame under seat) Here are pics 6 & 7.

I know. I pride the he'll out of the felt like I would pull the paint off. I have a plastic razor blade . I'll put some tape along the reflectors and try running the blade under it to cut the two sided tape. That's the technique I used before to remove emblems of of cars.

Cool

Heat it up with a hair dryer then twist it off!

Another trick, with using the hair dryer to heat it up, is to use either dental floss or fishing line and thread it behind the reflector to cut through the double stick tape.

As for tmod issue.. I've done a part for my fury, instead of stock one. Thanks to this part, seat position does not change at all. Everything fits perfectly. Now there is no rubbing between the seat and fender.
