APRILIA FUTURA

 

2004 FUTURA RST

 

DONT TAKE ME LONG BEFORE THE MODS BEGIN NOT THAT THERE IS MUCH TO DO ON THESE BIKES

PRETTY GOOD RIGHT OUT THE SHOWROOM

I FITTED SOME GENMAR BAR RAISERS JUST FOR SOME ADDED COMFORT

AND HERE'S THE THROTTLE LOCK INSTALL DEAD EASY AND A GOD SEND TO BE ABLE TO REST

THAT RIGHT HAND ON LONG TRIPS

SO HERE'S THE INSTALL

 

YOU WILL NEED PATIENTS A DREMEL OR GOOD OLE FILE

AS SOME FETTLING IS REQUIRED TO MAKE A GOOD FIT

THE ONE IN USE IS BY NEP

FIRST YOU NEED TO DO A BIT OF DREMEL OR FILING

THE LIP ON THE THROTTLE FACE NEEDS TO BE REMOVED

A STUB NEED TO BE MADE SO AS TO FIT BETWEEN THE TWO THROTTLE CABLES 16MM

FROM THE FRONT EDGE 9MM

REMOVE THE MATERIAL TO ALLOW FITMENT

IGNORE THIS CUT I MEASURED WRONG (DOH)

HERE YOU CAN SEE THE LOCATION BETWEEN THE TWO CABLES

WHEN FITTED ADJUST TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS

COUPLE POINT WILL NOT WORK WITH HEATED GRIPS AT ALL

YOU WILL NEED TO PULL BACK THE GRIP RUBBER SO IT JUST FITS THE OTHER SIDE THE INNER GRIP

THIS GRIP NORMALLY SITS OVER THE INNER GRIP WITH TWO LOCATION TAGS

AS HERE

AS YOU CAN SEE IN THIS PHOTO THE OUTER GRIP HAS BEEN MOVED TO THE OTHER SIDE THE INNER GRIP THE

LOCATION BLOCKS STILL FIT AND THE THROTTLE LOCK NOW TAKES UP THE

AREA WERE THE RUBBER USED TO SIT

THIS WAY THERE IS NO CUTTING OR REMOVAL OF THE OUTER GRIP AND

IT STILL FUNCTIONS AS NORMAL
