Alex in Kingston Ontario!
« on: July 01, 2018, 03:30:20 AM »
Hey guys I just found the forum and I'm excited to share my 500XA.

https://imgur.com/gallery/bnqPXS3 That's a link to an album in case the upload doesn't work in the future.

Some of the mods include:
  • GPR Thunderslash exhaust
  • Givi rear rack and side case mount
  • Kappa K35 rear luggage case
  • Givi side mount cases
  • Front fork brace
  • retractable windshield
  • wider foot pegs
  • other sh#t that I can't think of

I plan on doing a few other things over the winter months but this is my first real bike so any tips or mod recommendations would be appreciated. I was considering doing the Rally Raid stage 2 kit with the upgraded suspension and wheels, but I'm not really sure if it would be money well spent or not.

Hey guys thanks for the welcome!

The previous owner didnt like the camo decal or the Honda logo decal and thought it would look better without the stickers and a badge instead.

I am not a big fan of stickers and so I would have removed the camo myself anyways, but I thought the badges were a nice touch.

Ill have to check out the AJC sometime and compare it to mine

Ha! Ha! My name is Alex, and IrishRover thought I was writing as you.... his bike is like yours  - red, de-striped and with the round Honda badges added.  Mine is silver and still has the yellow stripes, which I like!!
