Hi all, my 800kms 2018 TC 1500W will be delivered from Catalunya to my home in the mountains, far east of Málaga on Thursday, hopefully before!!
So far I have discovered an old pair of ''bars, Renthal 756-01 from my bodega, that appear to be much lower than the apes on the TC.
l have ordered a pair of Pirelli Angel City tyres in the original sizes for the TC. I prefer to use European or Japanese origin tyres.
Next is to change the brake fluid to euro standard.
Is the seat genuine leather? If it is it must go. I am a vegan for ethical reasons. 🙂
I plan to remove all the pillion brackets and the white plastic bits that hide the rear shock.
I will post what effects there are on the Moto.
Meanwhile does anyone have any suggestions for my TC? All ideas are welcome, I have 50+ years experience with petrol powered bikes, but less than zero knowledge about Electro-bikes .
@phil-de-canillas, correct on the seat. it's not genuine leather. it is made of a vinyl.
have you thought of changing the mirrors?
Just had my first ride of my 2018 TC 1500W, already derestricted.
I tried all the steep streets in the village from a standing start; the steepest kept me down to 20kmh. Which happens to be the village speed limit. ;-)
Next I went on the open road, a 6kms round trip to and back;. Suspension needs adjusting for my 58kgs, steers well then....
WHAT THE FFFF! The tyres have ZERO GRIP in the bends, full-on sideways drift/skid, both ends! Slowly home but had to grab the brakes from 20kmh, really good brakes but 2-wheel skid until I let the brakes go.
I already have a pair of Pirelli Angel CT waiting for them, they will be fitted tomorrow.
The OE tyres are by far the worst tyres that I have ever ridden on.
No not really it drops to about 40 kms uphill or less if really steep looking at upgrading my controller to a 65 amp instead of the 40 amp
