The rear goes on nicely though

So what do people use for rear "Tugger" straps? After yesterdays ride I can see the need for one. I've also searched and agree the sheet rock like screws that go into the sub frame are certainly not strong enough.

How about using a dog collar that just loops under the rear seat through the grab handle pass through. I was thinking this would be an easy solution.

Thoughts?

thinking of switching to .48 springs in the forks and either 8.8 or 8.4 spring on the rear shock. 210 lb rider before gear...likely running a rear safari tank off and on...sound about right?...research and searches seem to point in this direction.

Is it my imagination or is the motorcycle visible on the trailer on the web page for the upcoming Chevy Colorado a 70 degree Berg?

At least someone on Chevy's ad team has good taste! They are adding them to our company car program in the fall so I was sneaking a peek.

KOKO,

I'm not sure I'd want to use the strap under the seat idea if all of the stress is going to be placed on the seat release mechanism. I recently bought a FE450 that has a lift strap using the 5mm or so bolts on the rear subframe (mine has the 70* racing subframe tank) However, the strap ends are anchored at the bottom of the fender, not under the bolt heads at the top. This places most of the stress in shear, and it uses large washers to spread the load as well.

Koko,

I've got the rear dismantled at the moment to install turn signals. I discovered that the battery box mount tab had broken so I'm waiting to put things back together until I get my 3M 8005 structural adhesive order in at the end of this week. In the meantime, I'll see if I can lay the pieces out so you can see what it looks like. It may be this evening before I can get to it.

I just found the exact item at Cycle Buy -- here's the link with pictures. http://www.cyclebuy.com/shopping/tug...#Larger_Images

Currently on sale for $19.95 or, there's one from Moose Racing at $24.95.

John

Front fork compression stack Mods?

I bought my '10 FE450 in Arizona recently. After playing around with the adjustments available, I still find the front fork harsh on the rocky trails I ride there. Even with the compression damping zeroed. Now that I'm back in the PNW, are there any suspension specialists in the Portland - Seattle area that anyone could recommend?

TIA

John

I have rear subframe tank and at 220 rider weight the 8.6 is just barely enough from my measurements and riding assessment. I think I ended up with .48 in front but maybe .50, can't find my notes on the forks

Thanks John. Those are the straps I was looking at. I just don't see how to mount it securely on the subframe. Especially the left side.
