    About 80% of the mods were removed. Minus the pipes, frame sliders, and rear sprocket.

    The ice have taken over the roads so it is mod season. The ups guy delivered this pack today with matris kit that include, fork caps with preload adjustment,
    linear fork springs,black anodised alloy spacers,calibrated oil flow valves
    they recomend SAE 20 fork oil.

    Cheers danketchpel,

    I think I would take more time to "get there", we seemed to rush it a bit, maybe a meandering route through France to get to Switzerland first.

    Still, we had a great time.

    And they all seem to love bikes.

    :wink:

    Just bought a wolfman express bag, I really like the look and features but haven't mounted her yet because I'm terrified I'll jack up the tank paint. Anyone have any experience with something other than that whole Hannibal Lector looking tank wrap thing for protection?

    Side note I ended up getting Ikon rear shocks and Ricor Cartidges for the forks. :freaky

    Clear contact "paper". Protects the tank, nearly invisible, removeable.

    They don't make them anymore. Pitty since it is a great tankbag that also protect the tank.

    I guess we will have to wait a while for a ride report, but please keep us informed.

    Think there's any issue getting it to conform to the curve of the tank? Maybe a little hairdryer action?

    Fitting a flat plane to a curved surface requires some cutting. But you do all that while the backing is still attached and it's not that hard. You can even practice with a sheet of paper first.

    Hi Goodcat 8 - I fitted a set of these in Cairns a year ago during a 17000km trip around a good part of Australia. They are a great shock, you can choose spring rates, I went 100kg plus (I think that was the heaviest available) due to loads I was carrying at the time. Now I'm back home in NZ and not carrying the same weight of gear the springs are probably a little of the hard side but not uncomfortable. The reason I needed to buy them during the trip was because I blew an Ikon shock - the build quality of the YSS far exceeds Ikon -l very happy with YSS

    Is that aux set up a modified MC Resource brack and quick release plate?

    Ikons should be here any day. If I hate them I'll go the YSS route.
