Thumb Emig

cost is $810 + $50 if you want the GPS top plate(still waiting on mine)...http://www.emigracing.com

Heres a picture of the kit I snatched from Trailace's pictorial thread...


No welding required, realitvley easy to install if you follow the steps. Hardest part for me was drilling out the ignition bolt...

It has greatly improved my overall handaling and completly eliminated my annoying wobble. EMIG

Which stabilizer did you select - the Revolution I or II ? I notice the handlebar mounts are rubber mounted. Is there any difference in the amount of vibes coming through the bars compared to standard ? My left hand suffers from the vibrations transmitted during 700km plus rides.

This is another option, available from Best Rest Products in the US from $650.00..



No welding, raises the bars by about half an inch and has the benefit of three modes (so same as revolution I and II plus the Scotts all in one unit).

Revolution I, I'd say it reduces felt vibration by about 20%, so noticable less, but at the end of the day it;s still a thumper. The best thing I've found for vibration reduction has been the Pro-Grip DS Rally grips... http://http://www.jcmotors.com/pm-67...model-737.aspx

looks real clean, but do you have to drill the stock clamp?

Those steering dampers are SWEET!!!... but you really don't need to spend all that $$$ for that fancy machining.

Here is my simple design that works great (No, I am not making/selling these). Flat plate with 4 holes dilled in it, 2 of the holes are tapped. Trim to fit and you are on your way. It also moves the bars foward and up a bit (much needed for ergo. anyway). The only thing I recomend is to get one of those bolt on posts to avoid the welding on the frame.

ROC damper came from Adventures Workshop.

Question Rear luggage rack?

Who other than TT makes a rear luggage rack for the Challenge? I'm in desperate need of one. The TT's $$$, is it worth it? Is there something out there that has a heat sheild for soft saddle bags on the muffler side? Any sugestions would be much apreciated.

About the rear luggage rack, my bike came with the large TT rack. It works as advertised; don't know what other viable (cheaper) alternatives there are.

With regards to to soft saddle bags and the muffler, that was a big concern for me as well. I went with the Dirt Bagz (bags and racks). Tons of space between the rack/bag and the exhaust. In my case, a Leo Vince x3 which seems to be pushed further out from the bike than the OEM exhaust.

If you want photos, contact me at elkhornss@mac.com and I will send you some.

I have their tool kit for my 1200, although a bit pricey, it was well worth it!

$179 bucks is what they told me!
I wonder if it's going to be any different from this one for F650:

If you are so inclined, there doesn't appear to be anything on that plate that you couldn't do with a hacksaw, drill, and proper tap. Oh, and lots of elbow grease. I've not seen anyone mount a damper quite like this. Wonder how long it's been running like this and how it's holding up...

There is a group buy on the Scotts steering damper over here on thumpers somewhere.

And as far as luggage racks, BMW, Hepco Becker, TT, Twisted Throttle, and a few German companies all make them.

I like the Hepco Becker, but I made my own out of an old compressor handle....

Graphics kit

Was someone in here talking a vendor into doing a graphics kit for XC or did I imagine it. I've done a search on the 2 main XC threads but I can't seem to find anything
