Is anyone aware of a luggage rack/plate that takes the place of the passenger seat? I am used to having a solo seat and a large top box there.

Jesse do one for the 800. Give them a call. Also Palmer products do a rack covering the pillion seat, again for the 800.

What is the reason? They made the rear platform even with the pass seat for that reason.

I'd like to see a one-two gallon auxiliary tank in place of rear seat locking as the rear seat with flat top even with rear rack...

I wrote to Jesse and they said there was no comparable part for the 1200 Explorer, but I do have to wonder if the 800 Tiger part will fit.

I have a large Jesse topcase, now out of production, that needs to be securely mounted in the passenger seat position.

Almost at 10K on the 1200 without any issues. The only oddity it the front and rear tire wore out close to the same time and it's usually 2 rears to a front for me.

Did the Cherohala Skyway back on November 2nd. Lots of ice and snow in the higher elevations and the back roads. 365 miles for the day and 75 of those were dirt.

I just got mine this last week. I went with the velour cover that will be warmer in winter and cooler in summer and it doesn't rain much here in sunny NM.

Okay, in the instructions it looked like they wanted you to route the wires through the frame somehow on the way to the connector. I didn't do that.

Yep, just like on the picture in the instruction - have to drop right side panel.

The routing on page 6, step 4 of the instructions is what I didn't accomplish. I didn't remove the plastic headstock infill panel and gave up pretty quick on trying the thread the wires inside the frame with the tank on. I'll have the tank off eventually and will do it then.

Anyone added some tunes yet? Or to any of their rides not standard with a radio? I love having some good cruising music, but my ear buds drive me nuts after a few hours. I might try mocking up some speakers to use off of an mp3 source down under the dash. Theres a suprising amount of room down there even at full lock of the forks
