Highway Peg mod to make them longer... Total kit less than $45
PIAA light switch mount for my 1150...
These are badass
Well done! Do the switches have covers over them? If so, what are they made of?
Scott - Yup, they have the little rubber covers that come with the motorcycle wiring harness. If you have automotive wiring harnesses, then you don't get the fancy schmancy rubber covers. But they probasbly cost less, too.
It looks like a long reach to the switches with my thumb, but I have XXL hands and can hit it while keeping my hand on the grip. Would be easy enough to locate the switches closer though.
I made a tent holder for my GS 1150. I measured all the importent distances (between bolts etc), made a sketch in AutoCAD, printed it out in 1:1 scale.... tested it once more, then I sent the drawing into workshop specialized in laser/water cutting and that was it:) 4mm thick holder for my tent...
paper model and final product
already on motorcycle
and one more pic from side
jeez I ready love this topic!:dllama
Made a few in my day as well;
This one was a two piece - small rack plate that a larger plate bolted to...
How much did the shop charge you for cutting it out?
You supplied the AutoCAD sketch (in AutoCad formatted file), right?
Good idea this thread Ricky
What have you been up to yourself lately?
hi, at least here (Czech republic - central europe)
programming of the machine (according to my CAD drawing file - actually I think it was somethink like copy/paste method :) ), laser cutting, material - all together cost me about 430 CZK which is about 20-25 USD
just if I would do it once again I would probably put there some paint coating... because that aluminum alloy is quite weak and when there is something attached to the rack it moves slightly during the ride and it makes the attached stuff dirty (aluminum dust or something like that... so at least some transparent paint coating is not a bad idea)
Coming from you that is a big complement but the Heroes here are the ones getting their hands dirty
Not much riding for sure, i'm dedicating my days to the most important project somebody can ever have
Whow, I never knew you were into skate boarding
Very well done, congratulations!
"Patineto" = "the man that skateboard" en Espanol, Skateboarding was my first real passion and I only stop riding need my body say no more..
Congrats Ricky. Been a long time since I met you at the Elsinore Gran Prix maybe 8 years ago.
Hi Greg we did have a pretty good day that time, great memories..
Very nice. Excellent work!
A sop well done. I see a sidecar in your future, Or do they make 1200 gsa bus.
Keep up the good work Wive and kids come first.
I'm dreaming about sidecars already (for many years actually) but my wife is not to big on the idea, will see what time will bring, For now is time to enjoy every minute this little baby brings.
Excellent thread, love the idea of using a plastic cutting-board pad for the sidestand feet. Brilliant.
So here's a Vstrom windscreen mounted to my HP2E with 4 small pieces of 90 deg aluminum hardware store strap. The 2 uprights bolt to the headlight mounts, the 2 horizontal stabilizers go back to the turnsignal mounts. No drilling or irreversible changes, & works even better than I'd hoped....a blind pig finds a trruffle...
