Honda Zoomer (Honda Ruckus) – motogadget
The Honda Zoomer motogadget installation began on Monday & Daniel started by tidying up the headlight/indicator assembly & now the cabling has a clean minimalistic look having been fully braided.
The next task was to wire up the momentary push switches & install them onto the Zoomer.
The customer has already fitted the m.unit blue & battery. We will be writing a separate technical blog about the Zoomer wiring.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 – Fork upgrade
Yesterday we welcomed a Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 to the Mono Motorcycles workshop for a fork upgrade. The YSS kit dramatically improves the comfort and handling of the front suspension on the Interceptor & Daniel found a considerable difference in performance & handling from when the bike arrived, to when the upgrade had been installed.
The YSS Kit includes:
1 x 250 ml YSS fork oil 15W. (Important Note -Oil will not be shipped on export orders due to shipping regulations)
2 x high performance fork springs.
2 x Fork emulator valves with adaptor rings.
2 x Steel spacer tubes.
2 x Pre load/ride height – adjustable alloy fork tops.
2 x spacer to spring shims.
Fitting for the fork upgrade was 2 hours @ £55 p/hr + £5.00 Cons + £5.00 Env + VAT = £144.00

BMW R nineT Custom – new tyres
Gorgeous BMW R nineT at the mono motorcycles workshop today. The nineT joined us for fitting of Dunlop Mutant tyres, the perfect tyre for a rainy Thursday. Dunlop Mutant’s provide you with the kind of handling & stability you expect from hypersport tyres, the very best grip in wet conditions this side of racing wets, as well as the kind of durability that you would find among touring fitments.

We would like to introduce you to our new member of the mono motorcycles team. Please join us as we welcome Oaklie White as Motorcycle Workshop Assistant & what better way for us to introduce Oaklie is with him doing what he does best, trials riding.
