Are you going for a 2into1 for further weight savings?
What was your wet weight target and how close are you to that?
It looks great! Where does the battery move to, or is the SE location different than the ADV?Also trying to find some real feedback on the Teraflex. Good, bad or indifferent for 10-15% hardpack/pavement and the rest, goat track?
Um, I'll take one of each please!
very effective design and beautiful welding! do you use 3 mounts? including the bottom stock motor mount? and how do you feel about adding outer case protection to prevent side impacts or siliding grinding ones?
what is the weight of your plate? and what thickness did you use in the different components? stock SE was 3mm
You really oughta sell those-- that's a piece I would be proud to have on my bike.
Well, the skid plate goes with the underseat oil tank... and I doubt there would be many willing to pay for what the entire kit would cost. But thanks for the compliment...
The bottom plate is 5mm, the sides are 3...
Uhmm ,i be happy the paid for that set up , nice work Ken
Im assuming you just remove the casing mount bolt and swing it fwd if you have to get at anything underneath it? (ie it pivots on the engine mount)
Never underestimate the willingness of the masses to pay for the good stuff! especially when it's soooooo SHINY!
What are you going to do for a lower radiator mount?
Something like this...
great job, the bike looks really better without the oil tank in front of the engine....and more safe too with that skid plate....
But I was also thinking I don't like to loose the underseat space....so I was thinking and thinkin.....
You said that the new oil tank under the seat is something like 2 lt of oil....and for you it is not a problem because you change quite often the oil..
...so I was thinking......
Well... If I can find the way to put a oil radiator that contains more or less 2 lts of oil.. ..I can remove the oil tank, have a better cooling system...and still have the underseat space /really usefull.
What you guy guess?
If I'm not mistaken a 2 liter oil radiator is quite of a big size, comparative to the bike.
On the other side with all the space saved in front of the engine, you could make a huge skidplate with lots of compartments (i.e. crumple zones), pack up water tank, air compressor, complete toolbox and spare parts (tubes, ...).
