Just to clarify, I purposely ran the exhaust end just below the airbox inlet that way when I hear the exhaust get muffled under water I know I am getting dangerously deep to flooding the intake.

You can not see it from the pics because I am standing taking the pic from higher angles, but the pipe outlet is the same height, maybe slightly above, the top of the tire, it is pretty high.

Looks good and thanks for sharing the idea.. you don't worry about the river crossing? And I am curious what type of side box or side bag do you use? Any pic of them on with exhaust like that?

Thanks!

I've had a Buell Ulysses and never worried about the exhaust, I have my 1150GS setup the same. I really like a balanced looking bike with the hard bags tucked up tight and no muffler to burn a passenger. As long as the engine is running the exhaust pushes out the water.

Ordering the chainsikle today.. wondering where did you get the peg and who is the maker? And is it a permanent fix or will it move backward and revert back to the position loosely like dual sport bike? I would hate to risk the damage if there were a spill because peg is a permanent fix. I was hoping for XR pegs at $20 a set but Shane told me that the size of peg would not fit in.

The peg is from Joker Machine. They have two versions - short and long. I picked the short to keep the bike width narrow. I don't remember if I bought it direct or from a distributer (i'll check). It mounts to the Chainsickle rear sets with a pivot bolt and pivots vertically upward which is different than a typical dual sport or dirt bike peg where their pegs usually pivot at a 45deg angle up and backwards. But, they do still pivot, so if(when) the bike falls over, it should rotate up. Dog paddling in sand though, or foot down sliding in a dirt corner is where its good to have the 45deg pivot so they give when your leg calves hit the pegs.

I used the stock Sportster spring clips on mine too to prevent the pegs from rattling. When you lift the peg up, it doesn't go back down by itself. You need to push it down.

Im considering changing to a more dirt oriented 45deg peg for mine now. I just need to change my mounting brackets that bolts on. I think the Joker Machine is a nice looking peg and it works fine for most riding, but in a crash or dog paddling, Id like a 45geg type with spring return. Personal taste.

Maybe you can modify the clevis width that the XR peg would fit into to make it fit?

So far, I haven't dropped mine to crash test them, so cant help there

Forgot to add - the chainsickle rear sets are fairly high and back, so for standing, it may not be ideal. I worked with Shane on custom lower brackets and new shift linkage that helped, but ultimately I had to make my own to get the pegs where I wanted them. Anyway, Shane's a good guy and im sure he'll work with you if needed.

Hey Jimmy, are you going to be able to get any pictures when they start fab on your pipes? It'd be cool to see a real pro at work. Assuming they'll use your bike for mockup?

I should be able to post some pics of the progress. Were scheduled to start 2nd week of July and the bike will be used for the mockup.

Im working with Curt at BTR Moto. You can check out his website to see some of his work. Very talented!

this should expand coverage just a bit, sadly no mention of ADV rider though.

For future press releases, I'll try to get ADVrider in there as you all helped a lot in this build.

Thanks for the Uncrate link.
