New rear break pads and switched from pirelli Scorpio M+S to continental trail attrack 3
....in the images I don't see your front brake lever? ... ...
The bike was still chained so couldn't get off the stand but I pulled on the wheel and couldn't move it. There is a slight slackness to the cable when in the off position so it may need some adjustment at the calliper but no more than a turn or two....
So you were able to hook up to the old parking brake cable and you still have the same parking brake caliper strength? Not able to push the bike back with your feet while mounted?
It will just plug right in, already tried the blanking plug that was on the accessory socket wiring from my previous 2021 AT DCT and it fitted right in. Sadly I don't have any crimp pins left or I could have just used that.Let us know how the connector hooks up. I figured you’d need to splice, but that looks much cleaner.
Oh cool, which webike part number did you order for the parking brake assembly?
I think it is what the AT should have come with instead of slightly awkward lever and ratchet arrangement.
Interesting it looks like the brake rotor is pitted on the top area?Also fitted some Titanium disc bolts that I got from eBay, quality seems good.

Yes it is but no where near as bad as the picture seems to suggest. It is with putting the bike away on a Sunday after being out on salt laden roads and not getting moved again until the next weekend and the salt sitting between pad and disc.Interesting it looks like the brake rotor is pitted on the top area?
Geez, what else can go wrong on these (especially black) Africa Twins two grains of salt and the brake disk falls apart 😳Yes it is but no where near as bad as the picture seems to suggest.

Zip ties are necessary on todays modern HONDA Africa Twins... they actually hold the bike togetherIs the zip tie on the quickshifter necessary?
I installed it per Honda's very specific instructions. I'm sure it would probably be fine otherwise but they had some issues with the first version with the wiring becoming damaged from vibration where it enters the shifter. They have changed its construction somewhat and I think it'd be good without it but I'm sure it's a precaution. The loop doesn't allow it to move as much where the wiring enters the shifter. They even give you a rubber sleeve to put around the cable to zip tie over. Who knows. The instructions actually have measurements that they list for each cable fastener along the way. It's a little overthought but oh well... It works.Is the zip tie on the quickshifter necessary?
