la idea es colocar remaches con rosca y perforar mas abajo de cada lado

buena idea ?

mala idea ?

Threaded rivets ( cative nuts, nut serts) tend to come loose unless welded

good thinking thou, there is alot of stress where the Nav mounts to the frame with all the pounding the bike gets bolts can come loose , if you work out the leaverage ratio for 1lb onthw top of the nav bracket to where it mount to the frame you be suprised, the most common weld on mount look like the letter B thats welded on to head stem , that what 99% of the dakar bikes use because it works

veru east to make , you can do it will hand tools and a block of chro'mo steel ( same as bike frame

que les parece?

For what its worth, thats how MecaSystem seem to mount it. (ie bolted to the frame - with a bigger contact surface area - rather than the RSConcept which is meant to bolt to the stem.

Id agree - welding would be strongest.
The bike in the pics is a Patsy Quick / Meca-built bike - nothing welded that I saw (but maybe they do now..)
From pics I had seen posted, I thought the RSConcept was also bolted (but bolted to the stem) - maybe no-one does that anymore...

By the way, mudders, what step-up in fork springs have you gone for to handle the extra fuel? (before and after spring weights)

Did you have suspension set up before you added the tank? What was it then?

Im trying to get a feel for the suspension change the tank requires.

rallye build

So hows the progress/finished product going mudguts???

...and a couple of pics would be nice. Also interested in the fairing - how does it go redirecting the wind at speed from your helmet? I ask as I notice it doesn't have a forward return (curve profile) and was wondering if its height or profile make a significant difference?

Cheers Pete.
