    I got my brackets in the mail today from RMS. Here are a few photos of the moc up. I just wanted to slap it on and have a look at it.

    I was wondering if the cables look ok or will I have to pull them down and zip tie them off so they dont flex into the back of the F2R. I still ned to figure out where I'm going to mount the IOC as I'm not sure if the road book bracket will show up in time. I was thinking of using heavy duty velcro and just stick it on the top of the F2R for a quick mounting option.

    And with the F2R stuck on the cross bar.

    If anyone sees something I'm missing our should make sure of please give me a shout out.

    The ICO or odometer really should be above the left side of the roadbook. Just above the mile/kilometer note on the roadbook. Velcro won't work to stick the ICO to the top of the roadbook, but here are some instructions on a cheap method that has worked on thousands of miles of rally routes for us:

    A new F2R roadbook option, designed more for racing, is coming soon. The older version will still be available. I'll post in Vendors. We almost always have lots of navigation stuff in stock.

    fun fun

    Looking good.
    On the break cable routing. We cut off the outer sleeve and use these pipe clamps to secure to the triple.

    That's more wrenching than my weak ass tool box can handle. Do you think I will have a problem with the cables where they are run now? It's the Evia rally in Greece and it looked to be a lot of dirt track trail.

    Is there no way of routing them in front of the X2 headlight?

    When your front forks are compressed, your brake line, in the normal routing, will come up and possibly get caught on your navigation equipment, causing all kinds of interesting troubles. Take a good look at it. If there is any chance of the brake line getting caught, an easy short-term solution is to take some beefy zip-ties and cinch the brake line to the bottom triple clamp (with the forks fully extended, wheel off the ground). Often the hard outer coating on the brake line down there is flexible enough to let the brake line bow out below the triple. But this is not an ideal solution. The best way is to strip the hard coating and to run the brake line down the right fork, across the bottom triple, and then to the wheel, like Chris said. This way it will bow out and hopefully not get caught up in the wheel. Use the p-clamps like in Chris's photo.

    Ill head down to the hardware store and see if I can find some clamps. I'll have a better look at it in the morning. Thanks for all the input.

    Charlie,
    Do you know if the new F2r roadbook will fit the existing Crux Studio bracket you sell ?
    Thank you.
    Edit: never mind, I saw on your website it does.

    Just checking to make sure the F2R works. I'm still on the hunt for some pipe clamps to route the brake cables over the triple.

    Here's my home built effort for the upcoming Condo 750 in Australia.

    I'm using a F2R, Trailtech Vector (with rally function). The lights are from the Trailtech too, you can get them as a spare for thier X2 light.

    Does anyone know where I can get some p clamps quick for my brake line reroute I went to every shop/store I have near me and No one carries them. I'm in the land of über engineering and not a clamp to be found. I'm still scratching my head

    Funny, I was just at the touratech shop here in Athens, saw some (of various sizes) and thought of your brake line routing connundrum... check their online catalogue. If not let me know and I can pick some up for last minute tweaking before scrutineering :evil

    Not in Germany it would seem. Oh what I would give for a auto zone down the street.

    Just cut, drill and bend up some sheet metal. Line it with a cut up piece of inner tube to keep it from cutting the brake line. Doesn't need to be pretty.

    I may have to make my own if the ones I ordered today do not show in a timely manner. I really wanted to work from the top down and install the IOC sensor last. I was looking at a easy way to mount the sensor to the fork and I'm just stumped. Can everyone post some photos of their set up of the senser mounted on their bikes?

    Do you mean the ICO sensor cable? It looks like you have a KTM. Just unscrew the stock speedo pickup wire from the hole in the front brake caliper hanger and use that hole. The ICO sensor cable threads are the same. The original KTM magnet in the disc will work fine. Pay attention to the distance between the sensor cable and the magnet. Run the cable up just as the original KTM cable used to run. The ICO instructions are very good, with tips on setting up that cable properly.

    And, don't forget to give yourself enough length of sensor cable to allow your forks to extend fully without stretching and breaking the cable!

    fun fun
