    Mav - what valve covers are you using? Looks like you are missing a bolt.

    Thanks!

    And what kind of deep sump is that? It looks like it's made of stone. :lol3

    They're the Ilmberger Carbon covers - they use a special rocker cover bolt that's threaded to receive a second bolt to hold the cover on. I lost the missing one in a tumble :D

    Yeah... if you have one made of stone, it helps when you dragging the bike over rocks :lol3

    I like the idea of not having to use the three weak valve cover mounting points on the head. I've snapped off a couple and these covers might do the trick. Other than the mising bolt, how have they worked out for you?

    Thanks!

    They worked out great, took a whole lot of abuse and allowed my to ditch the crash bars. BUT - they're extortionately expensive! So once they finally died, I went back to the plastic OEM protectors - they won't last as long and don't look as cool, but the left hand rocker cover survived a 40/50mph dirt wipeout last weekend so they work too.

    Hope that helps :thumb

    Some killer HP's on here. Love these recent panniers- very tight package.

    Mav- you certainly use your wear parts...head covers and bash plates...what you have in mind for bash plate this go around??

    My pics aren't recent but some of my favorite glam (and other) shots from over the years.

    Right now hoping for REAL Baja time REAL SOON!!!

    Best to all.

    Those are some awesome shots :clap

    Are they mostly in Cali? I'd love to get some time riding over there!

    As for the wear parts... yes, I have been known to use them to the fullest :wink: I started with the Wunderlich bash plate but it really didn't take the abuse that well. Have gone with the Touratech version now, which actually mounts to the subframe as well as the engine :thumb

    Mav- Would love to host a ride out west- come anytime!

    A couple of these shots are from Eastern Sierras and Death Valley (California) and the rest are from Baja (Mex). Lot's of good riding to be had.

    Post a pic when you get the Touratech plate mounted!

    Sr Dopra- Yes, that's a Dunlop 908 on the 18" wheel. I like that tire quite a lot and have been through a half dozen or so. It seems to handle the weight and power of the HP well without burning up in no time like others I've tried. I think they use a hard compound and have a very rigid carcass. Still I've not tried a Michelin Desert--it's supposed to get good mileage too, but has tread that appears more dirt-focused than the (very dual sport) Dunlop.

    I'd love to hear reports on the Mich Desert of anyone's used it on long highway and dirt trips!

    I also keep waiting for Mich to release a new heavy duty dualsport tire as I saw pics of prototype tires from Dakar a couple years back...very cool :thumbup
