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.

She said 'sir I see this bike was registered in Wi. and Il. but we cant register it now because it's a dirt bike. pisses me right off. I told her it has everything to make it compliant for road use but she wouldn't have any of that and refused to look at it in person. So my solution is to buy a tablet and make out a bill of sale every day I ride on the street now. I have the old title still. I have since named the bike Grace, as this is what I will be asking for every time I get pulled over. I will own the grace period. After I wear out the g.p. I will have to take the bike to Mi. and plate it there so Wi. will miss out on my reg. fees and taxes. If any mates has a better idea please chime in. Thanks

How close are you to MN? Since last year you can get a street plate for any motorcycle that has been register for ohv. You could get a 3 year trail sticker and plate for under $50. Tabs are about $15 a year. No title and no inspection.

I've run the MT43 and really like it, seems to last about 3 times as long as a knob and grips great. Here are some pics of my pig with the new LED headlight and semi-SM/street tracker wheel set up (19" at both ends).

Yes, rear fixation is bolted to engine case and nuts are damage because of excessive tension.

So only option is to install time sert or not use those rear points to hold the skid plate.

Surprised this haven't occur often with you guys using this skidplate

Sure. But first of all it weights 4 kg (8.8 lbs)
You can just use something similar to giant loop coyote pants.
We used selfmade pants in that trip, it cost about 100$ and I remember someone used his real pants for that purpose but it wasn't that reliable. There is enough space for everything but fuel there.

About the rack, I found a cheap and solid rack a year ago on ebay for about 120$, I can't find those now, so that's how it looked

Not much space really
http://cs405527.vk.me/v405527542/71bd/PsmfCAOM8r0.jpg

But it was solid
So I asked a mate with rack welding experience to make it able to withstand some abuse.
His previous work on xt225:
http://cs310129.vk.me/v310129542/1e3a/AMdeshm5VU0.jpg

While thinking on how it will look like we came to a conclusion that it needs bottom support for jerrycans but if we would spare the left plastic of abusement the rack would be too fat and it would be more difficult to man handle the bike when it's loaded with a jerrycan and a lot of stuff on top, so I decided that offroad nobody gonna see the hell chariot anyway and in town less people will be interested in it. So we cut through the left plastic

We decided to use the iron pieces lying in his garrage that were left from the time when a hanger for clothes was more tough than some motorcycles subframes that's why it's so heavy

First test drive, 10l of water from the left and 10l of fuel from the right.

I crash tested it on pavement and it's still holding up great

No cracks or anything after a year of riding, I sometimes worry about the subframe, but never about the rack

HUmm, mine isn't bolted to the case, nor would I want it to be. Look at some of the other skid plates, they use clamps on the frame. It seems like you should be about to buy/make some clamps and then just drill a new hole in the skid.

My opinion is that if a skid plate bolts to the engine case it is not offering the best protection.

Those clamps could be easily made, even by me.
