If I had it to do all over again I would probably just bought K&L Cycle pegs. I have these on my Tiger and they are great. They run about $100 and are made by a forum member on t-rat (maybe here too?). Can't believe they were mentioned yet.
I think they must have been mentioned before as I saw the link here somewhere and bought them....work great and are real pro

Awesome pics Satcen!

Any pics/info on your tool box? Or anyone else for that matter?

I'm heading from Denver -> San Francisco and back at the end of the month and am looking for ideas.

Thanks!

I asked about that before. He said it was an H.D. Toolbox. Something along this line.

You can find them new and used on e-bay.

Geia sou Giorgo, to be politically correct, it is in the middle of Yugoslav Macedonia, in the no man´s land between the cities Brod-Prilep-Veles.
Some more pics on my Photobucket

Its almost like it has a funny profile that I'm fighting. Not sure if its normal, but it isn't nearly as fluid thru the mild ranges I put it thru. Not sure how to describe it, but I don't like how it feels like it drops off as I lean into it. I don't ride it very hard, but the first time I rode it, it felt so odd that I jumped off to make sure everything was tight and where it was supposed to be.

Thoughts?

I noticed the same thing when I put 705's on my Bonneville. After experimenting with tire pressure, I ended up moving the fork tubes up in the triple clamps a little bit (10mm or so). That made it feel much better.

Just got some second hand Ohlins PL 36 shocks. Wondering if you guys can shed any light on the necessary clearance for the reservoir and the muffler?

I've got 5/16" right now:

Can you space the muffler outboard using some washers? Or can the shock be mounted with the reservoir forward - although that may make some of the adjusters very hard to get to. Let us know if you can get a bit more breathing space for that reservoir.

Your approach might make the most sense!

Agree Bruce, its not a mod for the eye this one either. But getting older the dawn and evening riding has been more and more difficult. Will use them from now to the winter, and when the season start to may. This Denail is the biggest and they do have a round version as well.

I'd like to know you're perception of how they function, and perhaps even some pics of how they light up the road and the ditch. I don't ride at night much, but when I do I always wish for something better...

I've got 5/16" right now:




Update:

Did a little test ride today, 40 minutes or so of spirited very lumpy back roads. The shocks are awesome, WAY different than my $200 Hagon classics.

But to the heat issue, after the ride, the right side piggy back resevoir is hot. Not too hot to hold, but definitively warm as compared to the left side.

I added some washers to space the muffler out more, I have a solid 9/16" now. If I flip them to be reservoir forward, I get 1 1/4", but they look so goofy on the left side :(

Anybody know enough about shocks to give some advice?

Mentioning that the reservoir is warmer than the left side, I would suggest getting some heat shield material (thin alloy and thin glass insulation sandwich) - same as under our gas tanks and probably adhere it to the reservoir, this should reflect and insulate from the muffler heat. It might not look the greatest however and it may need to be occasionally replaced to keep it looking new. Another thought might be to try to build an alloy heat shield to be attached to the muffler between it and the reservoir - not a lot of room in that 9/16", but that could help instead of the insulation material on the shock reservoir. You might be able to combine a small heat shield with some of that insulation material and make an effective heat block for your shock reservoir.

On my Scrambler, I have ZRX shocks with an Arrow scrambler exhaust, I'll have to see how warm my reservoir get, not sure how much space I have between the two, hmmm... BTW, I've got about the same amount of clearance between my shock reservoir and the Arrow muffler - I'll watch the temp. Wonder if while riding the temp of the shock is not impacted, only when stopped and heat radiates does the reservoir get warmed up??? Maybe it all doesn't matter performance wise...any shock experts out there?
