New Red DCT.
Did a 350 mile ride in Central Oregon last weekend.
Who's rear rack do you have and how do you like it?
Has anyone actually cut there grab bars off? Issues? They're driving me nuts and preventing my luggage installation.
Yes, cut them of straight away.
You do not carry anything on your rack?
Anybody got pictures?
A keyword search of "cut+rack+handle" produces seancampbell's OP. He did post pictures of the OEM rack w/out handles (plastics on and off, I recall). The custom search function works well for seeing what's been posted and hashed out before.
Much better looking RED scheme than the 2016 with the two toned seat.
Always a guy that has to point out the search function. In the same amount of time the question could be answered. Thanks. I'll continue searching. The OP's name is helpful though.
Pump the brakes, Boss. No sharp pokey stick here. This forum is like a shipwreck of content strewn about the seafloor. I personally don't care if the same question is repeated in five unrelated threads and in this case of "Who cut their love handles off?" it probably was.

Look out , coming to a road near you soon.
The final approval had to be from his Occupational therapist who had to check he could transfer to/from and handle the bike safely / correctly and she said yes, yes, yes, brilliant.
She actually had a cry in the car following James as she was so overwhelmed by what she was watching.
Did a 25km loop including junctions, roundabouts and traffic lights all completed faultlessly.
He can now ride on the road accompanied by a qualified rider until he completes a transport safety check ride then he loses the "L" Plates and is free.
That is brilliant! Is there any chance of getting a YouTube video of the final mechanism running through a complete start, momentary stop and restart then a final stop? I know I was talking to a few guys that were working on the left hand rear brake for various reasons. I'm sure they would love to see and read how your final set up is working. Or is it still a work in progress? Congrates!
He is using a Clake that has Clutch and Brake Master cylinders but currently only using the Brake Master. As the internal cams in the mechanism are designed to operate clutch then the brake, the brake operation is in the last third of the lever travel so it is quite close to the bar and as it is rolling over the radius of a cam at this point it feels quite "squisshy" like an aerated brake feels but it does lock the rear but gives very little feel. We may hook in the clutch master as well through a "Y" connection to give more fluid displacement earlier in the lever movement or change the operating cam profiles to activate the brake earlier on a steeper cam.
The landing gear indication is driven from an arduino computer board set up to interpret the actuator signal output giving flashing single or dual lights for end of travel and steady increasing number of LEDS for intermediate positions as he will need that on the dirt in ruts etc. He taught himself the arduino stuff and wrote his own code. We blew the first boards regulator as the bike regulates to 14.5v and the board regulator could only cope with 12v so it had worked flawlessly in static testing but failed during the first tests with the engine running. He now uses an independent regulator to supply the arduino with about 8v and its own regulator takes it down to 5v.
Here is a vid of the indication:
Bit blurry but you get the picture
That is crazy cool..
