Trazer or Fazersys 1000
« on: 16 January 2020, 06:02:53 PM »

So, deterioriating back, neck and knees causing problems. The normal solution would be to buy something more upright / ergonomic. Logical, but expensive. Decided I still loved the old girl but wanted a Tracer / Versys-like riding position.
  • All handlebar cables sent off to the professionals and extended by four inches.
  • Tracer 700 handlebars (nearly four inches higher than standard)
  • Vstrom handguards
  • Longer front brake cables (roughly three inches).
  • Tracer clutch mount perch (allows LHS mirror to be fitted)
  • Tracer mirrors with extensions. Before I could only work out there was a car behind me, now I can tell what make of vehicle it is - vast improvement!
  • One inch lower footpegs
Probably cost around £200 in total.
Obviously gained a lot of comfort but at the expense of outright handling. Bars not fouling the screen on full tilt.  Switch cables rerouted under tank and justabout stretch ok.  Issues with the windblast are worse than before but might seek some radical solution such as a Madstad screen setup.  Worth it? To me, yes - will be able to keep riding her for another year at least  :)
