Ok, I program CNC. This is what happens when you have waaaaay to much time on your hands or own a shop. Nice work, I'm jealous.
I don't get this. Why an air compressor port on the bike? And how does it provide air? You mean you have a portable air compressor mounted behind the frame?
That's exactly what I was wondering! :eek1
WOW can I order one?
My bike is the older one on the right. I adapted a Cee Bailey from an 05 1200GS windshield to fit my 1100GS.
I thought the stock windshield was the worst I've ever experienced. I then bought the Givi and it wasn't much better. To me it wasn't even rideable for any distance at all.
So, I cut down the stock windshield and coated it in bedliner to use it as a mounting bracket since the stocker is so tough and well made, just poorly engineered. It works very well now.
Senor Wjrudo this is very Gaudi of you, awesome sense of shape you have there.
One question, do you notice the kickstand "Bouncing" more then you are riding in the dirt do to all the sprung mass at the end of it..??
And I did the LED stips in the handguards...because I was bored.

No bounce. The back side is pocketed out so the weight is near nothing.
I have a mini air compressor on board. It's mounted on top of the front swingarm. I've carried a portable on trips but the bag and hose takes up valuable space. The hose is from an airbrush, as are the quick disconnect fittings.
Raised front of GSA seat, I'm 6.7"... didn't like the forward slope...
Thanks I will try to find the insert and bushing ... know it needs to be threaded inside to fit over the present bolt, since it is welded in.
Only place I could find it was in Germany so I bought it here:
I wouldn't bother if you're not really tall, otherwise you achieve the same by adjusting the seat front high and rear low.

I'm 100% happy the way it worked out and the ride is much more comfortable.
Ricardo- Congrats on your child, know that you are always welcome at my home should you make it down to San Diego, anytime.
And now, Ricardo, please show us your efforts. I know you have done many interesting fabrications over the years. Share!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Greg only time will tell if we ever go that way.
No, this posting is for others to show their stuff and Man oh Man if I'm really impressed.
External Re-usable Oil Filter:
Now I don't have to remove 10 bolts to get skid plate off. Drain is remoted also.
Nice job PackRat! Handy mod!
more pics please.
I'm impressed. I like that idea.
Looks like the oil lines to a Turbine. That and the safety wire scream out AMP.
