Do you still have ABS with the 21" front wheel?
Damn, I've got a KLR and I'm gonna order one of those just for the experience!
The ABS and Traction Control are unaffected by going with a 21" front wheel and/or 18" rear wheel.
One owns a BMW GSA the other a Yamaha Super Tenere, lightly based on a true story......
Yes, everything is OK, ABS and TC still working perfect
and the bike is a beast now!!
That is interesting and very clever.
It shows that the calculations that the ABS/TCS does are set by parameters fed back to the ABS unit during the first couple of wheel revolutions after start up. i.e. The period that the ABS light is on, if it is turned off for any reason. (fuse removed/Wheel spin on stand etc)
So how did you get around the tyre touching the bike ?
Better read the Rumbux small print first......
"Thank you for purchasing a Rumbux product. Some owners have experienced spontanious
living room antics and erections. For erections lasting more than four hours we recommend
staring at a KLR. Should symtoms still persist stare at a black Yamaha Tenere. Should
symtoms continue to persist you've got problems to share with your boyfriend........"
The tire touch the skid plate centre. Now the manufacturer (ACD) is trying to modify the plate to avoid this. At the end of the week well know if hw can
. Hope so!
With the Touratech it touch very little in full compression.
U-Haul sells crash bars and skid plates!? :huh
Oh shit, maybe I'll wait.
Yep, Mikef500 was surprised too. He then promptly turned to testing the "Unlimited All-Hazard Warranty" listed on the box by tossing the crashguards and the skid plate through the nearest flat screen TV. It's all evident by the expression on his face.
I don't know. Looks more like he grabbed the Orgasmatron before reading the instructions.
Like this one?
how much do the crash bars and skid plate weigh together?
You can go here for info on a bunch of skid plates.
Cut and paste on skid plates:
WEIGHT (measured with bolts and all hardware): lbs / kg
FORCE: 6 / 2,7
TOURATECH: 7,8 / 3,57
HEPCO&BECKER: 14 / 6,3
ACD: 11 / 5
ALT RIDER: 9,2 / 4,17
RIDEONADV: 13 / 5,9
RUMBUX: 12,6 / 5,7
As to the weight of the Rumbux, the weight of the unit, complete upper and lower with all hardware, (most of the big bolts replace shorter OEM ones), is 23 lbs. The lower bash frame w/skid plate and all hardware is 13 lbs and the upper bash frame is 10 lbs.
Close. I like the original better.

Well got her all put together this afternoon. Pretty easily done.
I did find that I did a number on the oem 'crash guard'. Cracked it completely across both ends:
Luckily it's the less important right side.
Now I've got tomorrow off work, but I'm hesitant to test it, as its the biggest hunting week of the year here, and all my favorite roads are in hunting areas.
yes, i remember. i was drinking yesterday
Ditto for Florida. You wanna cook? Sit at a red light on 95 degree heat and have the fan on a VFR start funneling heat your way - that was warm. The Tenere? No worries whatsoever.
Your going to need some serious risers if you insist on riding like that.!!
