I have not had time to test it yet but initial findings are that Mark got it right with the dimensions as it fits and looks very good.
Quality and optics of material and the edge cut looks very good remembering that this is a prototype...
This screen is about 120mm higher than the standard screen, and around 75mm higher than the optional yamaha high screen.

Sorry about the fingerprints all over the screen.. Should have probably wiped it huh?

I will be reporting back to Mark after Monday as I have a 200km+ visit to a clients place in the country - Perfect for the new touring screen shakedown run.

I will keep you all posted.

Greg.

Yeh I did like it on the long country ride/s when I went to visit the 200km away client. I think I only ever used it twice though as honestly I can not stand the look of tall screens on these bikes.
I also do a lot of off-road riding with my bike and there is NO WAY I would head into the dirt with one of these sticking up front.
I ended up giving mine to an inmate..

Generally though, if the looks dont bother you then they do a reasonable to good job.
It was after I took the large screen off that I decided there must be a better way, and designed the MotorradWorks windscreen adjuster kit. This gave me the best of all screen positions as it is so infinitely adjustable.
Mine has been on the bike ever since and I do set it constantly between low and in for bush work, and high and laid back for highway riding.

Greg.

I have finally found the correct front guard for my liking.
After buying four aftermarket guards, then trialing the best fit up against every new bike on the showroom floors I have settled on what you see below.











I much prefer the look of this compared to the shorter unit I had on only a few days ago.

To me, this fits/looks/feels like a factory fitted unit and I think this is how they should have been from the factory.

Even though this is only temporarily mounted, it is a super strong and rigid install so I went for a 180km ride today to test it out.

WOW....
What a difference.

Gone is any debris and sand etc flying up through the steering stem/faring hole...

Gone is any form of wind buffeting. I actually rode with the screen on std/low today (as shown) and with my Aria Corsair (noisy helmet) (as shown) so I could get the best feedback from effects, and I can tell you, the wind noise is quieter (I can hear the engine and front tire now) and I witnessed no/nil/nadda/zip/zilch/f#@kall effects of buffeting up to 160km/hr (allegedly). In fact I had the visor open the whole day.

The high guard in combination with the 21" front wheel is really making my underpants happy.

The bike now feels so Honda XR600ish crossed with Ducati litre+ sports bike that it is freaky. It has maintained all of its agility on road but with a more "solid" feel in corners and straight lines. It's not put off by grooves and bumps in the road (not that that was a huge problem) and responds more readily to body english than it did with the 19" wheel. The bike is so different now that it just feels more tuned and in tune with my way of riding and what I expect from this type of machine. This machine is starting to really feel CONNECTED TO ME...!

I have an 18" rear coming from Woody over the coming couple of weeks and I am sooo looking forward to that. I feel that will be the icing on the cake and convert this into the Super Tenere that Yamaha should have made.

More to come when I get a full day (200kms) of forest riding in on the weekend after next

Greg.

it started with my stone-age sketch,,supplemented by wasp-man's Solid Works wizardry


here's the lay of the land,,,the obect was to take the 3mm/.120'' 6061-T6 plate and convert it into an adapter that would hold th eOEM sensor ring circa .06-.070'' from the pick-up mounted int he sensor holder..


here's cam's future hub[he doesn't know it yet,,but i do ],,,having the lip machined where the sensor adapter will rest to give us the proper clearance down the road


drilling a pilot hole for the 1/2'' drill


here's the 1/2 hole being drilled to accept a my material holder for the lathe work



that's wasp-man's new double disc hub having the step machined at the correct depth


4.444'' is the diameter that his new adapter plate needs to be machined down to in order to fit perfectly within it's new boundaries



these are the 6906 2RS bearings before and after we re-pack them with hi speed water-proof wheel bearing grease,,FYI the bearings were virtually absent of grease...


waspman's hub being preheated prior to bearing install


waspman's [left to right] sensor holder,,,sensor adapter holder,,,and the sensor ring
and below them the oem bearing and sensor holder spacers and the Superlite version of the same for the ST hub


getting ready to mount the sensor ring


Voila,,www presents to you the completed product = ABS/TCS capability that works


enjoy,,,

woody

FYI,,we do wipe the excess off,,,with our finger tips,,what works for high RPMs is waaay insufficient for low RPM s like your wheel bearings

Hey, good to see you pop up here Rick.

I'm pleased with the way the bike is coming along. I have been hanging out to do the high guard thing for the longest time and the availability of Woody's bigger wheels is what pushed me across the line.
I have designed some fork leg guards as the finishing touch and should get them during the next week or so.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...1&postcount=48



I'm heading out behind Mundaring through to Karagullen tomorrow for the big test run but I only have the trail tire fitted to the front. Woody is sending a new 21" ABS/TCS compatible front and an 18" rear over to me next week and I plan on fitting some Dunlop D908RR's to them. This way I will have my dirt setup with chunky knobby goodnes, and my road tire setup for taking the lovely lady touring.

Hopefully we might see you on the trail if you are out tomorrow, or maybe just catch up at the next Bully BBQ.

Cheers.

Greg.

P.S - Dunno about the "bank balance" looking good. I have been too busy doing this shit and not focusing on my paying job..
