Do you think you can fabricate something like that?

I have been waiting a while for this to come in. It is a lot smaller than the stock piece and looks nice as well.







I got some wiring done this afternoon. The plus side is it works . I started the bike and all was well no fire or sparks. I like the sound of the ss2r has a different sound than any Harley I've heard





So tomorrow I'll work on wiring the dash and blinkers, can't wait to see the HDB led blinkers. The switches they sold me work well. As does the klr throttle and cables. I had to add a piece to the carb to make it work but it works well and is smooth

This is the only picture Ive seen of it. Havent seen any build thread. If I remember correctly, I think someone posted it here saying it was for sale in Australia - a while ago.

got a little more wiring done today. I like to use the two layer heat shrink cause it forms a waterproof seal and adds a strain relief to the wires. All the joints are soldered to form a strong joint.

here is one use of the two layer heat shrink it has sealed these two wires



this is used as a strain relief



an additional strain relief as the small wires join together going back to the vapor




I won't bore you with all the ins and outs of the wiring to day, but I am getting close to buttoning up the front and having a tidy wiring harness

I've got the bike where I can see the bottom well enough to look at that. It seems that one could attach the foot pegs to a square tubing going across the bottom frame rails and that would also work for a platform to attach the bash plate to. If there was one in front and another to the back for the pegs then the plate would be low enough to cover the exhaust and left side engine with a flat piece of aluminum. So that really makes the bash plate easier and solves the issue of standing position being correct, plus as you point out may save the cases

Sportduro or Sportyduro.
Not to complain but it's been days since you and the other Sporty Build have posted. You two guys are the "Godfathers" of this conversion movement. Good luck, Don John

Bad news is that the ttX shocks I was sent picks of are not in production yet and are not suppose to be done until the middle of may, then there will be shipping time and build time so I would not get them at best until middle of June. I just cannot wait that long so I have gone with Ohlins 36prxw. they should be ready next week






One concern that was brought up in this post is the steering stops being too weak. Just so you know I do listen to the suggestions it just takes awhile to get back to them. Anyway here is the new steering stop it should hold up



I like to use tank panniers as they are a very convenient storage place and help to keep the weight balanced front to back. The issue is trying to figure it out with such a small tank . the two set I have are the aerostich and the wolfman bags. Here is how they look on the bike.

wolfman


aerostich



I think the aerostich bags look and work better whats your thoughts
