Yeah, that's it, right down to the connectors included. I don't know about the "modes" though. Mine don't seem to do that. Price is about the same.

I spoke to a guy who said they overheat on full power if stationary. But on a lower power they are fine. The functions are switched on by turning the lights on and off quickly.

Played motohooky in the garage this afternoon and installed some stuff that was piling up

-installed new X2-9 battery

-installed the carbon case covers (these make me very happy considering how many times I've cracked/shoved-levers-through my cases on my Husky)



-installed the Black Dog side stand relocation bracket.

The side stand relocation bracket is about the most un-bling bling there is

First you have to balance the bike somehow (since you take both stands apart).. I used engine stands on the crash bars:



Here's the bracket..




All said and done you'd never know its there

Lookin Good Geek.
Is the battery a GEL Cell or Acid ??

You can clean that exhaust pipe by WET Sanding it with 2000 grit wet-r-dry sandpaper

This sidestand bracket doesnt relocate the stand does it

Im using Terlingua's original 5-bolt bracket design [painted grey to match the engine]

re: Battery
It's the same battery as the Braille 106 from what I understand... there was a huge long thread on it a while back that I read last night and decided this battery was a great solution for $79 with a 2 year warranty from a store up the street

edit: Here is the original thread on it:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...cement+battery
Post #112 is where the discussion on the X2-9 begins.

edit: Here it is on batteriesplus website:
http://www.batteriesplus.com/product...ASH-X2--9.aspx

I called my local batteries plus store and he had it in stock ready to go (and was open til 7pm Local KTM dealer was already closed and want $145 for OEM)

re: Exhaust:
They put mag chloride on the roads here in the winter.. my exhaust will never be the same

re: BDCW bracket:
The bracket puts the stand in the exact same location
It basically eliminates the stock front two bolts that go INTO the engine case by using countersunk bolts that sit in the bracket instead. Then it beefs it up by going back to the center stand bolt so that there are two rear mounting points.



Here's how the countersunk work instead of the original bolts through the case:
(in the photo above you can see the two empty holes (the front ones below the shifter) that are no longer in use - i.e. the ones you want to eliminate so that smashing your side stand doesn't crack the case around those holes)

I didn’t realise the BD plate fitted like that. I thought the plate just spread the load and side stand still bolted through to the case.

The Sidestand is ONLY bolted ON with ONE Bolt . . . The two front countersunk's are to the Alum brkt ONLY.
The 'Climb up on the Bike' Guys may give that a workout

Sorry guys I was still editing my text... take a look at it again it should be clearer.

The side stand is bolted to the BDCW bracket with 3 bolts (like stock) but then the bracket is bolted to the bike with TWO bolts at the rear.

If you look at this photo its the two bolts around the BDCW logo

Does this photo help?

So with the stock stand it is bolted on to the two forward bolts (empty in the photo below) and the stud to the rear...

Now those two front bolts are eliminated (bolting it to countersunk bolts in the bracket instead) and then the bracket bolts on to that stud (which is a 180mm bolt that comes all the way through from the other side of the bike) AND then onto the rear most hole as well.

The little hole below is skidplate.

So there are five holes visible on the bike below (one has a stud in it):
The front two are eliminated (the goal)
The next one (with stud) is used, and the rear most hole is used
The lowest hole is skidplate.



and all back together (comparing to above):



Clear as mud?

Re the BD Sidestand Mount, Kurt @ Blackdog has said he's had some BIG boys do the "get on the bike while still on the kickstand" thing and the bracket holds up fine. I've pivoted my 990S on it a few times with no problems. It's very strong.

No

It does not bolt to or into the case

Today I finished the valves, put everything back together and went for a ride.

BTW, I can't see why people complain about the tanks being hard to reintall. Mine have been empty and off the bike for 6 weeks and they fitted straight back on. Might have helped that my garage hasn't got above 15 deg C for over a month...

Finally, I ordered a sweet new Ralle Moto steering damper that mounts to the stock clamps.
