Hey asaracho, any plans to make more? Wanna make me a set?
just FYI, I think thats the starter cover, The oil filter is the one near the rear.
Nice stuff, Looks really good for homemade, Great job
If I had my own shop, i'd definitely make more but as of now that's just not possible, sorry! I do have the dimensions and drawings though, so if anyone has a good shop around that you can use or have someone do it for ya PM me and i'll see if I can scan it and send it over to ya.
Some guys have been using Dynamat on the big TT skid plate for the X...I used some spray on rubberized undercoating and sound eliminator. Helps a lot for the noise.
Nice work!! Too bad you can't crank them out and take some of TT's business away..
By the way folks, Touratech has raised their prices on all their farkles, due to the falling US$... the TT X Challenge bashplate has gone up $20 odd to $243 from $220..
Got any links to pics or product websites or maybe stores that sell this stuff? Thanks!
Spray on undercoating. I just got mine at the local auto parts store. It's in a rattlecan. There are several different brands...guessing they are pretty much the same. I tossed my can (used the full can) after I was done so don't remember the brand.
Pretty sure any auto parts store would have it. http://www.partsamerica.com/ProductListSimple.aspx?Category=3280
As for the Dynamat stuff...I think it is used for soundproofing doors and stuff...so check with car stereo installation places.
JC Whitney used to sell a reasonably priced top box. Personally I prefer a plastic toolbox (Craftsman) bungied to my WeeStrom rack.
Just saw an X Country in person for the first time today......I liked it a lot......I think it might be my next bike.......
hi guys... have anyone tried / thought about putting the headlight and the high fender from the Xchallenge on the Xcountry??? will it fit ? ? ?
Think it will look cool
I am pretty sure you can mount the fender on the xcountry. The only difference between the two there is the brake cables on the xcountry run and are bolted under the fork brace where the fender mounts on the challenge. The challenge has the brake cables routed differently leaving that area free. It would work I'm sure, with a little bit of work.
So what does touratech do to their bashguards to prevent it from bending the bolts that hold it up? I lifted my bike up using the bashplate and totally bent the two bolts that hold it up front...They were on tight. Could it be maybe that two bolts aren't exactly flush with the surface? Weak bolts? Any suggestions are appreciated!
I have an x-country as well and I'm glad to see a thread started up about them. I have had it for a few months and so far I really like it. I haven't done any mods yet but the minute I do, I'm posting it all on this thread.
That's what I keep hearing as well.
Will a Moto or Challenge seat fit on a Country? I know it's kinda the opposite of what some have asked, but I'm finding my long legs are a little cramped on the xcountry...
I doubt it but can't really say yes or no since I haven't tried or read about anybody doing so.
Any new owners out there?
Not an owner, but maybe.....
Are there screw holes under the bottom triple clamp to mount an Acerbis high fender instead of the whole Xchallenge assembly? My R100GS came with a low fender, but mounting a high fender was easy.
I'm thinking about one but might go w/ the Scrambler as its bigger and a twin. Country is still a sharp bike
Yeah, it's the same clamp as the xchallenge I believe. The only difference is that on the country the brake lines are routed under that clamp and there's a bracket that holds them there, using those screw holes. I'm probably going to buy a cheap high fender and test how it works eventually. As soon as the weather gets nice.
