Do you have a pic of it on yet? Wanna pull the trigger on it, but would like to see it on first. Bought a Motomule Trailer from Mrbracket (Mike) here in Springfield. Need to eliminate the extra fender extender thingy, (Sorry don't know what it's called real name), on my DR. The trailer will work with it on there, but only lifts 3 feet off ground, then hits fender. This is the cheapest option I've seen.

Me and bike are 4th pic down on this link. The trailer is frickin schweet. Got a 3 week Colorado trip planned in July and I can even carry Ice for drinks in the trailer.

Thanks John

The rmz 250 tube works as a quick throttle. Just carve the stop block back to allowfull throttle

I believe its reasonably straight forward to fit it to a DR keeping the stock light and brackets.

I decided to pimp it up and go for twin lights which are just 70mm lights I bought at a local auto store.
Holy shit so it uses the DR mounting hardware out of the box? What else did you tweak to make it fit? How do you like it?

What's the 10.2 readout about?

Can the brake line move with suspension travel ?
Just moved out of the way for the pic maybe.

seat removal/ swap

Brackets and rubber bumpers will cost $35 ~ $40 from Suzuki dealer, as best as I can remember. Yes, it's nice to be able to swap seats quick & easy.
To remove seat without removing side panels, I drill large holes ( 1 inch?) in the side panels over the area of the seat bolts. I carry the little Cruz Tool in my kit. A Cruz Tool socket with some poster-tack stuck in it to hold the bolt from dropping into some infinite cavity where you'll never find it, reaches in there to tighten or loosen the seat. Bingo. It's nice to be able to access the battery, etc., trail-side without removing the side panels.
I like what BergDonk did with extended bolts. "I made up some long bolts that go through the sidecovers. Means the seat comes on and off without anything else being touched. They do double duty as a mounting point for my occasional water carriers." A long bolt with tubing-as- spacer would do it, make it even easier to get the bolt on/off, could double as a bungie strap anchor.

I believe Yes, the screen will mount to the existing hardware easily. You have to make up a small bracket for the bottom mount. It comes without any holes or a cut out for the headlight so there is a bit of drilling etc to do. But that's not what I did.

Here's a look at the brackets I used.

Thanks for the kind words. The windscreen is an elcheapo for an FZ1 I got from HERE If you use the code D2M2008 it knocks 15% off the price. It was about $20 on special when I got mine but has gone up some,still not too bad. I wanted something cheap to replace when it broke,but it has held up well. I'm about 6' and with the spacers it puts the air pressure at my chinbar at highway speeds.Kinda cheesy looking but it does the job of keeping the air pressure off my chest. Here are more pics of the screen and the spacers I made to mount it.





The readout is a Cyclemax volt meter HERE (low reading is from engine not on for clearer pic).


ADV8, you are right,I moved the brake line to get a clear pic. It's tucked under my GPS mount.

I read other reviews that the lip puts clean air on the helmet and removes the wind pressure from the chest, hopefully this remains true for my 5'8" frame. I've tried so many shields so far, and just cant find the right one. So far I've had:

A cheapo eBay scooter shield- good protection, vibrated the bars a lot;

the dual sport shield from procycle (in various positions), too much helmet buffet, no protection;

spitfire (in various positions), too much helmet buffet, no protection;

23" parabellum, good except got some nasty buffeting on my helmet at highway speed. and finally;

25" parabellum- fine other then looking through it annoys me, and it looks dumb being as big as it is.

I'm tired of searching
At 6', 34" inseam I am very happy with Laminar screen. I used duct tape for test running and bolted the screen in place with rubber grommets. I didn't trust the velcro to hold up against tree branches etc.

Sorry but I think it got pitched. I just took a piece of cardboard and scissors and ended up with that. If it would help,I can email more detailed pics that might show more.

I think it looks good on the white headlight. Nice looking bike. How do you like the lights mounted on the hand guards? Did you make the brackets? They look nice.
