    I've been a little lax on posting here. The previous order arrived last Friday, 5/30, and was re-packaged and shipped out to customers on 5/31.

    I have the minimum orders needed to place another order, and will be doing that shortly. If you want to order Rumbux Crash bars for the Super Tenere, KTM 1190 (Std or Adv), or BMW F650/800GS twins ('08-'12), then PM, email or call me this week to get in on that order. email is in the profile or first post. 435-817-0809

    Deliveries to customers are expected to be during the week of July 21st, if not sooner. The 6 week time frame has been pretty steady, but with international shipping and all the things in-between, things can happen to slow the process down.

    Pricing is currently $775 for Super Ten 3-Part Kit, and $800 for the KTM and BMW 3-Part kits, but the Super Ten kits will likely be going up to $800 in the near future. Possibly increases in the others as well.

    After nearly a year of waiting, and months with my Rumbux kit sitting in its box, I just spoke to the dealer and their service department is putting my ES together RIGHT NOW! I should be able to pick it up tonight or some time tomorrow and once I go out and get some tools (mine are all in San Diego with TQO) to do the install, I will be able to see if it all fits correctly! I'll take some pictures along the way and post here as well!

    I'm so excited. And I just can't hide it. (spoken in your best Ben Stein voice) j/k I'm literally bouncing around over here.

    PS the pile of packing material they wrapped the bars in filled my trash bag lol! They send their bars off ready to go through battle before arrival/installation!

    PPS in the rumbux kits now instead of bolts and nylock nuts, the skid plate is attached with those retained nuts that were posted... somewhere. The ones that have the metal clip so you can just pull the bolts and drop the pan to access the oil filter. Very happy to see that, saves another purchase.

    I can state for certain that there are no fitment issues with the 2014 Super Tenere, ES or Std models.

    I can now order Crash Bar Bags and handle bar bags, as well!

    Here is a better pic of the GS size bag, note the waterproof zipper. That is standard. The bags themselves are not waterproof material, but a good hit with Scotchguard goes a long ways. The bags are padded front and back and double wall in the middle areas. Really nice.

    $65/pair for the Crash Bar Bags - (Introductory Price! Will go up to $70 next time)

    The handle bar bags are priced at $80 (more complex to make)

    I'm putting in a new order NOW, so if you want some of this, contact me ASAP. I will be submitting my order to Rumbux this evening, late, so I can get an invoice quickly enough to make the wire transfer before I leave Wed after noon on a month long trip to AK.

    Yup, fits the ES perfectly. I do want to say though that -aside from being very sturdy, and overall looking decent- the welds on these bars are absolutely hideous. It's like someone just learning to weld for the first time made them, and has zero control over their pool... I swear I could do a better job and I have never welded before. That might be offensive to the boys back in Africa, but really... If you're going to make a product, one would think you would put more care into it. I hope Rumbux gets their shit together in that respect, because aside from the welds being so damned ugly, this is one fine product.

    Now I just have to order the PIAA lights and install them to make use of those mounting brackets - which, by the by PIAA.com sells in S10-specific kits with the same brackets now. I also need to figure out aluminum luggage for my S10, but that's besides the point.

    If you're a welder, I can appreciate your point of view,but have you looked at the welds on the Super Tenere? Some are first class,others are pretty sloppy.

    In defense of my South African friends, pretty isn't high on the list, its all about being stout and holding up to the abuse that riding in the RSA entails.:D

    Heads UP, I am placing a new order with Rumbux immediately. If you want to get in on this order, please phone, PM or email me ASAP.

    Pricing has gone up a little. Necessary evil due to the cost of international shipping. I need to grow the business, and I only did a tiny bit over break even on the last order due to increased costs. I am really trying to keep things as reasonable as possible though. Still free shipping. A few of the smaller things, if ordered alone, may have shipping costs.

    3-Part Kit for Super Ten - $800
    2-Part Kit for Super Ten - $500
    OEM Add on bars for the Yamaha crash bars - still $375
    Rear Protection/Soft Pannier brackets - $275
    Crash Bar Bags - $75/Pair (I have a few of these in black with reflective gray at the introductory price of $65/Pair still)
    Light Brackets for the Yamaha H7 lights, (also useful for smaller single post mount lights) - $50/Pair

    Got questions? Ask 'em!

    It's a lot cheaper if you can pick them up on the US side of the border.

    Shipping to V0K 2G0 would add an additional $110 and you will incur unknown additional duties and fees thru UPS.

    This is one of the reasons I do NOT ship outside the US. It's cost prohibitive.

    The XT1200 3-Part kits are priced at $800 currently, which includes shipping in the lower 48 US states.

    The OEM Add On bars to give better upper protection to the oem Yamaha bars are priced at $375 (includes shipping)

    Rear Protection bars are still $275

    Crash Bar Bags are $80/Pair These come in black with water/dust proof zippers, though the bags are a padded Cordura and not waterproof themselves. Available with reflective gray trim or non-reflective trim in red, orange or blue. (Zippers direction has been changed, so that they open to the front. (late '14 change).

    Light brackets are $50/Pair. These were designed as a three piece unit for the Yamaha H7 halogen aux lights, but you can leave the yoke off and they work well for single post smaller lights with 1/4 or 5/16" mounting posts. Some modification may be required. I've been told you can tweak the yoke to fit the 530 PIAAs, but I don't recommend that.

    There is a new simple light clamp for $25/pr as well. Pic in first post of this thread.

    Sorry if this has been addressed and I just missed it. It looks like where the upper bars run under the headlights, it would prevent me from using the PIAA auxiliary light setup pictured below... does anyone know if that's the case? Is there an "easy" way to have the PIAAs drop below the bar? [​IMG]


    I realize I could mound them on the sides, but I just like them underneath and if anyone is going to knock one off the side of a crash bar... it's going to be me.

    Also subscribing so I can be aware of the next order. I was convinced I was going with the AltRider Set up (Really like the lines), but this one is really growing on me.

    The bars are 1"(25mm) dia. So any light bracket for that size will allow you to mount the lights off the bars in various places. You would want to try and keep them as high as possible, which might mean putting them sticking out front of the bar, in order to maintain fender clearance at full fork compression. I honestly don't know if there is enough clearance to mount those PIAA lights under the bar, in terms of fender clearance.

    I have a HID aux. light under the bar, up as high as possible, actually mounted to the bracket tab on the Rumbux bar, rather than with light mounts, though I am using the oem light bracket for that light. The outboard lights are LEDs that are smaller than the PIAAs, but you can see that they are still inboard of the upper crash bars and protected in case of a drop. And yes, I have dropped the bike in this configuration w/o damage to the lights. I am using KC light brackets.

    I have an order coming in on Wed with two un-sold 3-Part Kits for the Super Ten and some un-sold Crash Bar Bags if you're interested. I will probably be placing a new order with Rumbux in the next two weeks as well.

    Thanks for the info...this setup is up there at the top of the list. While doing some searching I came across your similar thread on yamahasupertenere (dot)com. Looks like everyone is really happy with em and they can take a beating. Hopefully I'll be looking to make a purchase after the holidays. Thanks again, Kendall

    Questions are always good. When you're ready, give me a call. Things tend to slow down in the winter, but people are ordering 2015 bikes too, so you never know when I'll get enough demand to place another order.

    Bumping the thread. I am placing a new order on 1/15/15 if anyone is interested in getting in on that order. Delivery to customers at the end of Feb.

    I do still have some Crash Bar Bags in stock for the Super Tenere, and KTM 690 3-Part Kits. (tentatively sold, waiting payment)

    The 1/15/15 order was placed and those customers have received the first update. There are a few things ordered on speculation, so call to discuss your needs or pre-order for the Feb order. I am mostly able to place an order each month now, but it is still driven by demand and real customers placing orders, rather than trying to maintain stock and guess what demand will be. As Rumbux' product offerings have grown, it's more difficult to guess what will sell and what will sit. The profit margin is not great enough for me to have a lot of money tied up in inventory at this time and I would prefer to keep the costs down and the prices to customers down, rather than raise prices to allow inventory to sit and still have funds to pay for shipping and other business incidentals.

    Thanks for the update. I, for one, appreciate you keeping the price down. Even with shipping to Canada. Nice dealing with a straight shooter.:clap
