This new book from Haynes is aimed at the DIY bike modifier, whether carrying out entry-level modifying such as the fitting of an aftermarket screen and end can, or delving into the more exotic world of engine and suspension upgrades. There is a wide interest in motorcycle modifying and a vast range of aftermarket products available for the majority of modern superbikes. Typical components have been fitted in the Haynes workshop and their procedures set out in photographic sequence. Hints and tips accompany the fitting advice, plus information on what to look for when purchasing products.
The main subject areas are: exhaust cans and full systems, performance filters, Dynojet kits and Power Commanders, performance clutches, suspension upgrades and set-up, steering dampers, wavy discs, braided hoses, radial master cylinders, clip-ons, rear sets, chain/sprocket and gearing changes, tyre and wheel options. Other areas of the book are devoted to aesthetics such as replica bodywork, single seat units, screens, undertrays, carbon mudguards and huggers, transfers and decals. Separate chapters cover mini indicators, clear lenses, LEDs, gear indicators and rev/shift lights.
The book also includes a chapter on track days for those who have an interest in testing their bikes off the public highway.
The book extends to 144 pages and is well illustrated with colour photos.
