If you ride enough you will find out how it feels to have ice cold rain water dump down your crotch!

Just a theory and one that comes from a lot of different trains of thought but it may give you not as nice of a ride or, depending on how/what you ride, a cracked or broken frame.

Not that there's any evidence out there to say one way or the other. Just a theory.

My question is, can this be done? Because nuts are on engine case and could make a hole to long and punch it.

Tnks guys
Not sure what you are saying. Are you saying you are going to repair the threads with a timesert and then use longer bolts?

It is a pain, I have the same skid. But, like everything else, it gets better with practice. My bolts are about 1" long. Sometimes, when I am in a hurry I will change the oil with the plate on, and then just use air filter or chain cleaner to cleanup.

However, you need to be removing your plate frequently anyhow to get rid of the weeds seeds, sticks and rocks that collect there.

If you are within a few miles of home, I found that the cold crotch can be warmed again. Just make sure your paints aren't tucked in to your boots so that the self-produced warming fluid can drain.

I am 6'5", and use these:

I got the 3" risers, and have them in the full forward position. It is the first time in 12 years of ownership that I can stand up, and not have to bend over to keep the bars in hand. It made lofting/lightening the front over obstacles much easier, not that it was too hard, but it made it considerably easier. I feel a lot more comfortable on the bike now, because it actually fits me! Mounted very easy, and they are well made, especially for the price. HTH!!

I should have told you sooner, but there is an old mechanic trick to quieting valves; pack the head with saw dust. It makes it really quiet, for a while, long enough for the seller to leave town.

Glad you are getting your fawker squared away.

Depends ... we are going light to not interfere the bike handling to much.

I'm 85kg with gear and the pig is rated for 90kg total load so ... Have the Coyote just were the saddle ends, half on & half off & will only bring sleeping bag, a couple t-shirts, underware & socks, a thicker sweater, shorts & longpants, shoes, tools for a tire repair, extra gloves & goggles ... that's it, will mainly live in my KLIM suit . Will not overload it by much.

We will eat were we can find food & and pop out to the civilization for a nap in hostels ... so you don't need so much for a week's drive ... the Baltic aren't a desert were you have to bring everything

Have a Beemer F800GS also, on that I can stuff the Coyote full.

Rear footpegs not neccessary, tigh the lower straps to were the sub attaches to the frame or directly to the frame ... to make it easier I attached loops like below to the subframe bolts.

Your plate isn't bolted to the engine case is it? It should clamp to the frame, right?

So you could drill out the clamp with it completely removed from the bike, perhaps in a vice of some sort. Or am I missing something?

I found the trick is to not disturb the clamps once you unbolt it. Most of them will stay put and aligned for putting the plate back on. The bugger is always the front bolts for me.

Also, I thread each bolt on by hand and get them all started with a couple threads before I start tightening any of them.

I hope that helps. Another option is to buy a replacement clamp to replace the stripped one.

Give us a report on how the MT43 holds up. That is a MT43 pro-trials on the rear isn't it?

No, it's a Dunlop 803, and they hold up ok. I got this one free, so I couldn't pass it up! I want to try the Pirelli DOT version. It's supposed to hold up a ton better, with a very slight loss of traction.
