Let me know how that rack works with the Wolfman bags, I was planning on doing the same.

WORKS FRIGGIN GREAT!!! the exhaust side sits up about a half inch higher than the other but not a problem ... just leans up b/c of the angle of the rack... or i could have adjusted the straps and put to much tension.. who knows... throw a big dry bag on top and your good to go if you need to if your doing some serious mileage!

wolfman bags are bullet proof! buy nice, cry once!

I'll get a pic up tonight.

I think it's time for a high fender:)

Managed to do 40m in one and a half an hour:)

It was foggy plus getting dark, plus the hunters came out shooting a couple hundreds of metres away from me.. So everything was set up for a horror movie:)

However, the Michelin Desert front is just fantasting on sand. And the Mitas EF07 rear (120/90-18) is also working good, so I'm quite pleased with the tire setup now:) - until it gets mudy:)

what do you guys think about the touratech high fender? I could get a secondhand one for $90 (with the brake line and everything included).. Is it worth?

After a 1/2 hour of screwing around, I finally got the right angle on the swing arm and it came out.

works for me, I paid the full $$ with no regrets, for all the street miles I do I wanted to keep both front rotors and they don't seem to be a problem knee deep



The only issue I've run into is very high wind, I had a couple of hundred km's in 90+ km/h crosswinds recently and one gust that had to be well over a 100 picked my front wheel off the ground

nowhere to hide

Thanks for the input:)

I've talked with my dealer, and maybe I'll just borrow the fork protectors from a 690 sm (trimming needed), and go with an exc fender.. And drop the right disk and caliper as is.

But even this way it would take almost the same amount of money.. so I think I'll just buy the used ttechs..

Thanks once again!

For shock removal: unbolt and remove the links completely. Put blocks under the rear tyre to lift the swingarm most of the way up. Unbolt the top shock mount, then the shock comes down and out with a twist and maybe some swingarm jiggling up/down. DON'T drop the shock first, then try raising the swingarm. Won't work.
