Made some more progress. I fabed up some 3/16" aluminum. Just some simple bends to make them match the width of the stock headlight. Still just figuring it out as I go, I suspect I am going to use it for a while and scrap it for a re-design. I figure I won't really know what works until I try.







Next steps will be to fab up a riser bracket which will old the speedo, gps, and eventually an ICO and roadbook. Fab up a bracket that will mount the faring, and of course create the fiberglass faring itself.

Hope to get some good progress done over the next week or so. I need the bike to be ready in time for Sandblast Rally in February.

good that you are trying stuff out well in advance. It is amazing how much abuse a rally does to a bike and how much stuff gets loose or breaks.

Exactly, I ride this bike a lot so I figure it will be a good test platform. I just wish I had more testing time before Sandblast. I have fears of the whole thing coming off in the middle of a stage

Going to bring a big roll of duct tape and tons of zip ties just in case.

I see you have the ERTF-Repet installed using a Garmin 276c , how did you connect this , any complicated installation necessary ?

One option is to get the heading repeater built by fellow ADV inmate Schattat.


Here's his product: http://www.rallyenavigationsolutions.com/cr.html

He provides a cable that plugs right into a 276 and some other GPS units.

I believe this belongs here in this thread as I think it is quite ingenious. I cannot understand a word but what I do see is a flexible navigation bracket. It seems it would be quite stable and yet absorb crashes to some extent. @0:30
Any one have any further intel on this?

Looks like some kind of spring loaded pivot point. Interesting idea, I wonder how it held up to the Rally?

Figured I should throw our design into the mix.

Ned's 2012 Dakar bike. Support is under there somewhere.


Pic of a couple of the instruction installation photos for the production units.





more info and photos in my sig. below.

Or the tower is made out of a flexable plastic instead of the standard aluminium...

I reckon it could be delrin plastic. Tileman has been toying with this stuff lately, Im sure he will chime in soon.

Could be a big chunk of rubber similar to the KTM pds system... a great idea nonetheless!

Also curious about Ned's impression of the F2R, was he running the version with the external motor?

All versions of F2R have the motor inside. The way I see it, this is one of the major advantages over the MD design.

I have a low hours MD with a twisted motor right here, if anyone wants to buy it
