Quick question - I'm planning on purchasing the Hammer kit, the Basic 1275, but i want to do a few other things first, and make sure that I log some miles on the bike to make sure there's nothing else that needs addressing first.

My thought - are there any parts I should be on the lookout for in the meantime to save costs/look for deals? Things like:
-Ignition modules
-Clutch assembles
-Clutch pullers

I'd like to keep an eye out for these parts to slowly acquire stuff I know I'll need. Are the parts listed on the hammer site the only ones that are recommended?

For example, the 2 ignitions listed are the TwinTec, or the Daytona TC3. My bike is a 2005, which should I be on the lookout for?


Note: I've thoroughly read everything on Hammer's website. Very impressive, just wanting to expand on questions I had during my research

Ok, you have read stuff on Hammwr site. Have you looked at their videos
Their YouTube channel has lots of videos dealing specifically with the 883 upgrade

Ignition: the only one I have come across that I think seems to be the one Hammer recommends is the Daytona Twin Tec TC88A

Clutch: I went with Energy One

Clutch tool is not a puller, it is a compressor that releases the spring weight to allow you to drop a collar back and release a circlip
