Yup, I saw your post on the S10 forum and liked them enough to go ahead and order a set immediately after I bit the bullet and ordered the bars. (I did buy them from you BTW, but it's been several weeks ago now ).

The ABS and Traction Control are unaffected by going with a 21" front wheel and/or 18" rear wheel.

That is interesting and very clever.
It shows that the calculations that the ABS/TCS does are set by parameters fed back to the ABS unit during the first couple of wheel revolutions after start up. i.e. The period that the ABS light is on, if it is turned off for any reason. (fuse removed/Wheel spin on stand etc)

So how did you get around the tyre touching the bike ?

Better read the Rumbux small print first......

"Thank you for purchasing a Rumbux product. Some owners have experienced spontanious
living room antics and erections. For erections lasting more than four hours we recommend
staring at a KLR. Should symtoms still persist stare at a black Yamaha Tenere. Should
symtoms continue to persist you've got problems to share with your boyfriend........"

The tire touch the skid plate centre. Now the manufacturer (ACD) is trying to modify the plate to avoid this. At the end of the week we’ll know if hw can…. Hope so!
With the Touratech it touch very little in full compression.

Yep, Mikef500 was surprised too. He then promptly turned to testing the "Unlimited All-Hazard Warranty" listed on the box by tossing the crashguards and the skid plate through the nearest flat screen TV. It's all evident by the expression on his face.

I don't know. Looks more like he grabbed the Orgasmatron before reading the instructions.
