Hein Gericke satnav holder (sits on bars above stem cap) 8/5
...


Hey Lagerlout, are HG still stocking that satnav holder? It's so good you gave it an astonishing 8/5 so I'm now desperate to get my hands on one...

Think so, It cost me 15 last year, its designed to attach their tank bag but with a strap around the
bar risers it perfectly fine strapped to the bars. I know its a cheapskate mod
but a satnav is a satnav at the end of the day and its got me to and from places i'd never have found without it
Motorbikes, MUFC, Northern Soul....... Perfick!!

Could be worth 9/5 if this is the same thing.
So popular the price went down! :152:

It fits well, looks good and keeps everything clean,why not 5 out of 5.
Have you had a bad experience with one ?

I have one on mine. it looks good, thats where it ends,i get exactly the same rubbish on my shock as before but now have a hugger bit at the bottom to trough the c--p,when driving in the very wet the hugger washes me chain clean,annoying when on a long ride and you have to journey back with it jingling in your ears  :232: its just too short by far, thats it rave over. :015:

Oops forgot my hand grip deflectors 4/5

Added to my GT: Combined hugger/chain guard, front mudguard extender - both Pyramid I think (definitely first item), both score 4/5 as I think a bit more length would improve performance (ooo-er missus!); BrakeAway mechanical cruise control - 5/5; Palmer adjustable screen brackets - 5/5; Givi screen - 5/5

17t front sprocket 3/5 (not actually sure it's improved anything but its a bugger getting the slave cyl casing back on so its staying put)

I read somewhere on the forum that if fitting 17T sprockets from Renthal, you may need to shim the sprocket, to avoid it 'rocking', which will accelerate wear.
As standard, the Renthal sprocket is slightly thinner than the stock sprocket.
Hope you're not in this situation lagerlout.

I fitted a renthal 17T and you are correct it is slightly thinner than the OE one. It slid back and forth along the output shaft. Not much, maybe a few thou, so I cut a shim from some sheet metal and this held it firmly in place.
