Underseat extra box





Rear shock taken apart, all the dimensions are ok with the wheel being up at the maximum (and pretty forward, because of the 17x45 gear and brand new chain) ...
But with a trail Attack... I'll see if it's ok

I finally got around to putting on a sidestand bracket, Weld86.

I did the get-those-damned-bolts-out-of-my-engine mod.



A 3/4" countersink is not quite big enough to get a 10mm screw to fit flush, but that is just as well, because I didn't want to get any closer to the edge of the bracket. I just made the screwhead a a few thousandths smaller to let it drop down into the smaller hole.





The mod seems to work very well. I rocked the bike back and forth on the sidestand while holding my fingers on the bracket and the engine case, and felt no flexing.

Another thing I had worried about turned out to not be a problem: I had thought that moving the stand that 1/4" might make the bike stand up straighter, but it actually seems to lean over a little farther.

At least my case that is good, because more often than not my bike seemed at risk of falling over because of too little lean.

I have an early bike, so I did have to grind the web on the frame, but other than that the fit was perfect.

All buttoned up.

Can you share more pics of your fairing, like from the side and cockpit views?

Thanks!

I think this is a great solution to utilise all that wasted space.

Already done!

I'm not the designer of this box shape (credit JMS74), I only did some change to adapt it to my 2006 950, trying to be sure the tire won't hit the box even with a 17x45 gear (shorter wheelbase)
0.06 (1.5mm) is thick enough and is not so hard to bend and provide the possibility of manual adjustment "on the bike" before cutting/bending the side (advice: cut the side once your done and follow the shape, not the template)

Does this switch cycle through the display modes, ie: trip 1, trip 2, temp, etc... ?
I bought the KTM tripmaster switch thinking it would do this, but doesnt.

Would be great to have on of these switches to (more conveniently) disable ABS....

HDB switch linky:

Yep... hooked it to the empty Molex connector (behind the headlight, hanging near the Molex for the headlight connection) that's for the OEM Tripmaster. Simply hook brown (ground) and brown-yellow (mode) to any momentary switch and it will cycle through odo, trip 1, trip 1, temp.

Since I'm not gonna be following Roadbooks any time soon, I didn't see the need to be able to advance/retard trip 2.

As far as a switch to disable ABS, rgmax posted his solution here...
