+1, Dr Big. Did you have to mod anything for both sets of bars to fit?

Looks lick you just need to add the Hepco Becker bash plate for complete protection (mounts to the frame, not the engine, and is way more sturdy material than the OEM)

when we added the two together we did need to make some small modifications. this included a thick steel plate on each side of the bike.
we welded the plate to one guard and bolted to the other so it can all be dismanteld if need be.
I will try and get some photos of it in the morning when I have light.
all in all I think it is good but not perfect. The motech unit seems very robust and up to the job.
As for the trip it was a real blast. It is amazing how well this bike rides on gravel and in the dirt. There were many times I felt that if I was on the xt660z it would have been much harded for me.
I was most worried about the loose deep stuf but found that with a steady hand on the throtle but even at quite low speeds (35-40 Kmh) it worked like a charm. The one thing I realy do not like is the fact that every time you switch the ignition key off the Tc goes back to position 1.
As I am getting older and am a forgetful bugger this caused some unexpected hairy moment climbing some steep loose gravel roads and finding that the engine is loosing power just when I needed it the most.
When I did not forget it was super!
As for power - there is so much of it that I have shaved off my new "Karoos" most of the knobbies.

Yes I'm from Colombia

A little late but, Yes I'm from Colombia.

The picture is in Colombia. And there are no hi viz suits (in daytime) no more. Plus, they don't have to have the license plate anymore. We won our fight that It was a stupid law that branded us as cows.

another picture



And a current one with stompgrips and Hepco Becker Topcase

Metal mule cases and rack
sw-motech bash plate

pivot pegz
Calsci meduim screen


How do you find the Calsci screen compared to the original (apart from on the front of your bike of course !) and also could you post some close up pics of the fixings for the bash plate please. I am fed up with bashing my Yamaha ones back into shape. I would rather loose a bit of clearance than loose the sump.

Oh, and you could edit your profile to show where you come from.

Could you also give the pivot pegz reference?
Is it a straight install?

It's 'plug and play' my friend...
I'm not sure if the xtz1200 version is made but I'm using the Honda Transalp650 version and it fits perfectly

Does anyone know if the Yami crash bar and the SW-Motech upper/ mid crash bar From TwistedThrottle fits on the bike together? If they can go together it would give great potection it looks like.
