Finally did a bit of work to it :)
- Relocated VRR
- Fitted side stand relocate
- Fitted a decent bash plate
- Removed Rally fairing to replace with normal one
Is that a Ken's Tank ?
Best mod u did
You Made my day, Sir
Yes it is, working tits!
Lucky we didn't go over the edge or that would have been interesting
eh.... motivation for that KLR
Still too tall, still as heavy as the SE doesn't have the nice sound system bla bla bla .. enjoying the KTM when it is not crapping out
Hey likeing the look of the new bash plate , I'm keen to know where to get one for my SE
Many thanks, and after a few days, I LOVE it! It is weird how it changes how you feel and ride the bike, not to mention crash liabilities. Plus I sold it for a decent amount. If you want to rally, and mount a ton of stuff up-front, there is nothing better, but for me, with only a single tiny GPS to bolt on, it was not really needed, or pretty :)
The VRR and the Bashplate are just brilliant. Truly the best quality, form, function. They are from a Canadian guy, email info at mvmotoventure dot ca
Their customer service was just humbling, and like I said - the quality is just unreal. The only real way I can describe that bashplate is by saying it's like a bit of battleship that has fallen off, but only weighs about what the stock one does... :) Ok, it weighs more, but boy, is it strong.
Nice to see these Parts made it to their intended destination. Glad your trip to this side of the Pond was Fruitful, and Thanks for the kind words, pleasure dealing with you also.
On another note, i have wondered about installing one of those Fairings in the past, and i appreciate your experience in choosing to return it to the stock configuration.

Cheers Mike :)
BTW I did not have to lengthen the VR wiring loom. I undid the fuse harness, and just wiggled things around - and was a breeze. Your kit has got a ton of interest in my PMs, and no wonder - it is brilliant. :) I think Mookymoo will have written to you, if not others?
The Rally fairing is hard to explain.... An awesome bit of kit, no doubt, and it is just the best quality. However, for me, it was just too tall, and too far forward. It lost the SM feel to the bike. Can provide more details offline, however as a kit to fit, I've never come across as quality product. Saying that, for me; it was frustrating in a few ways
- The fairing caused dirty air on me, and I'd rather have clean air
- I think that the way I usually crash I would be better not having it
- It is very expensive, and as such I cannot afford it on the bike (to crash, as above!)
- It is IMHO, ugly....
Still intending of the Tower Bridge photo for you! :)
If you cut the top of the fairing about 2 inches and use the piece you remove as a 'laminar lip' its not too tall neither it creates turbulence.
I hear that there's going to be a Meteor shower Sunday night. Death Valley seems like a good place to watch it from...
Nice pics guys,man I want one of these 950's!
Any modding needed with SS relocater......bigkuri? Got a link for the skid plate chap? Does it use the normal stock mounting points?
The chap, Mike, has posted just a few above this - LAKEMONSTER- so PM him! :) No modding, but I did need to removed the tank so I could unplug the yellow wires of the VR from the loom, plus I had to fiddle a little with the fuses under the seat to give the wires a more direct path. Is a really quality solution.
The skid plate uses 3x2 mounts - rear by centre stand, middle the same as stock, and front the same as the stock. It removes all pressure from those front oil-tank mounting points, and the plate weighs very little. I like it a lot :)
Saw the Rally Design fairing off to it's new owner today, who was chuffed to bits with it, and it looks the dogs. :) He has tons of stuff to mount upfront, so it is perfect. In fitting it to his bike, I was again impressed with the quality - it I was rallying or doing loads of miles I would have kept it.
