A Request

I bought a TT fairing off a fellow inmate but it came without the mounting hardware. It should be easy to fabricate it myself but I am having a difficult time finding a good photo of the parts to base my design on.
Would someone that has the TT fairing installed be kind enough to snap some photos of the actual mounting bracket?

Check this link...

It is the touratech page for the rallye fairing with photos and installation instructions. Hope this helps... (-:

Yeah, that has been the best I have found to this point. What I need is a better angle of the 2 pieces directly under the fairing in this photo (next to the zip ties.)

Thanks!

Your problem Nadim is that the fender kit will allow you to fit a KTM low fender (990/950 adventure) ... which have fork legs 190 mm apart. the XC forks are 210 mm apart. The plastic on the fenders should be able to be made to flex enough to fit, but the upper part of the fender leg tubes may rub on the outside of your fork legs

Okay ladies.
Sadly i lost my ongoing war with the IRS, and is forced to sell my X
I'm probably not going back to the X, at least for the next couple of years....

So now i'm stripping her down and selling (Allmost) every part, (I've got it all, and then some...)
i'll start dismanteling her when i come back on land 22/12-12.

So, this gives you all an opportunity to get some parts you didn't know you needed, before i dump them on E-Bay.
50% retail + shipping was what i had in mind.
As i'm not alloved to sell anything in this thread, please send me an mail for any questions.

(Sorry if i crossed the line in this thread )

dead alternator??

My bike does not charge the battery. I can charge up the battery and it is good for 3 starts but then dies. I assume this is the alternator??

thanks

There are ways to meassure the regulator to be shure.
Offcourse it could be the alternator, but i doubt it.
Theregulator isn't that expensive, so it might be cheaper to just by a new one.
Max BMW has a fiche on their web site where you'll find prices as well

Merry Christmas to you all!

I figured I'd post this in this thread as opposed to the index.

I have the large Touratech bash plate on my XChallenge. I was looking on Twisted Throttle and saw the SW-Motech center stand for the X. Is it compatible?

Thanks.
