Picture rotation test

Here's a test picture - let me know if this fixes the problem. I think its a setting on my Blackberry that I set a while ago for holding the phone in landscape angle, but now I cant figure out how to change it back

Hi Jimmy,
you always manage to go one step further when I think the bike's complete now.
Kind regards, Bambi ... curious what's still to come ...

Me too , - every time I think its done, I think of something else. I guess that's what makes it fun. Next on the list are some racks for soft panniers, a plastic 6 gal fuel tank (same shape as the Aluminum), and a headlight rock screen.

As a long time HD owner and lover of evo sportys this is a very interesting thread. What if any are your thoughts about protecting the carb from being ripped off when dropping the bike? Having done just that on one of mine it was a show stopper at the time.

With respect to the exhaust have a look what Philth and the boys did with their DRs. These guys do mega miles to very remote places.





It allows you to run full size bags.

Thanks. Looks like what I'm thinking of, but not quite that big of bags.

For the carb/air filter, I have a crash bar that sticks out further to protect them and the tank leading edge. I haven't crash tested it yet though to see how it works.

Cool. The other advantage is with the lower exhasut is pannier style fuel tanks but then again that may not be the issue in the US as it is here where riding to some places requires 50L+ of fuel.

Love that you are realising a dream. We all have different views on what an ADV bike is and its great you are building your version of it.

When will you start to sell components?

Tank Panniers

I used to have these on a KLR 650 and really liked them for offroad dual sporting, so Im going to give them a try on the SC3.

They are Wolfman tank panniers and have 14 liters capacity combined. They keep the added weight more central to the bike's CG. Add a bag strapped to the back, and you can carry a good amount.

Pivot Pegz

Time for some new foot pegs. I've used Pivot Pegz on GS's before and liked them, so I'm giving them a try on the SC3 Adv. They pivot 20deg each direction which is nice for sitting vs standing. New mounting brackets required, so I've designed them and now ready to cut metal.

Here's a few cad images of the new mounting brackets...

Is there any way you can construct them so they mount off the frame not the front sprocket cover. Its inherently weak thru there as I know from personal experience

What is the weird welded spot in the middle of your gas tank? Your bike is fantastic by the way, but I would break into tears if I dropped it taking it where I take my Husky TE610. Unbelievable skills dude.
