    I am having my riding partner Cevin, a machinist, fab up a bracket using plans from a couple of sources including Tony Schatt's

    and I thought It may serve us rally racers well to have a photo thread of navagation brackets... photos or links to photos or plans, wherevever they are posted for posterity and a guide for the noob.. So I will start with a photo from the 660 rally and will add my "banana" flavor as soon as it is finished.

    Feel free and please add to the thread ... Michael

    Looking good chaps :clap

    Here's mine, just finished adding the last bit of nav kit to it tonight, a Tony Schattat repeater.

    Here's mine before the repeater was fitted....

    Hey: great setup, do you have multiple sensors for the ICO's, or do you splice one?

    thanks

    Hi Jack,

    Cheers! One magnet and two sensors - but you gotta make sure they pick up the magnet on the same arc if you get what I mean? Works well and they clock up in unison perfectly.

    Had to drill an extra hole through the Brembo.

    Is that the way you are typically routing the paper through the MD?, i.e. not using the upper top roller? :ear

    Copy of the KTM part, last one I saw from RR-UK was a lot thinner then the KTM one and broke of within 2 days..

    The KTM ones (when used with a TT roadbook) do tend to break as well where you mount the bottom part of the TT roadbook.

    All looks nice and sturdy, but it does flex a lot within days...



    Here is a pic from the 'Ape';

    Q: How do you make that ERTF repeater work? Does it have Garmin capability as opposed to only capable of being triggered by the ERTF UNIK GPS?

    A top-clamp mounted piece I made up on my XR to train for the Dakar, and for Rally Schools. Used this setup for years without a hitch.

    If you are making your own frame-mounted setup, I recommend welding some brackets on the front of the bike's frame like this as an attachment point.

    (Those of you who have done otherwise know why.)

    fun fun
