JJJJJJJJ..... I know that bike, JJJJJJJJJ
Getting sooooo close on finishing my 1550 side cases. I just have to build the mounts, and they'll be done.
We need a "like" button, I like the cases and sweet graphics!
i've used this stuff for many different things in the past. makes a great license plate backing for your dirtbike. just need a dremel with a good cutting wheel and your in business. that was the plan for this but once i had it in hand and "mocked" it up on the bike and played with the position, i didn't have to do anything but drill 3 holes. not really "sexy" or "super cool" but it's hauling bags, who the hell is gonna look at it? plus i had it off the bike in under 2 minutes.
what is it you ask?
a cheap, white, plastic cutting board. strong, light, water resistant, and heat resistant (to a point). like i said, Keep It Simple Stupid.
great thing is, it also doubles as a cutting board.
told ya i was a little crazy.
Great minds think alike! My top case is mounted on a black cutting board bought at Target. I had to use two nylon spacers to get the case leveled up:
Interesting "twist" on the exhaust cans.........
Those are "KTM" branded Gualdi cans, and that is the only way you can mount them. Odd, I know. KTM sold these back in '04 and '05. The PO of my bike was a KTM rep and put these on the bike before I bought it. They're really pretty good overall -- not too quiet, not too loud.
Huh.......learned something new. Thanks
They are unique!
This I REALLY LIKE... thin, clever, look light, look strong... like the rep. of Pelicans too. Can't wait to see the mount.
I have those pipes and they certainly dont line up that way ??
The bike arrives tomorrow.
And looky what turned up today...
Nice work, Crispy.
Stickers will be getting stuck in fairly short order.
Trust me, they do:
If you try to mount them the other way, the mounts don't line up and the little KTM decal thing would be facing directly down. My guess is that I have early production cans and that Gualdi rotated them in later production runs.
Hope you don't mind: I'm using your cool naked art-shot as my desktop
I just finished a whole ton of upgrades to my 990. Wholly crap, what a difference an air filter and new cans makes!!!!!!!
What cans and filter did you decide on? I have Wings cans but I am looking to do the DNA filter I think.
Akra cans and CPR Rottweiler filter.
project footpegs. very easy job and it works
nice work with the cutting board. But how do you take the seat off with it mounted ?
I had ordered Stovey's neat little GPS holder for my 60CSx to be used with the RAM ball mount system already installed on my bike.
received a package today
and it contained this
I was using the RAM cradle for my 2610 earlier but that GPS was one heavy weight and always kept moving when riding off-road due to vibrations.
So, i picked up a used 60CSx and order Stovey's mount which doubles up as a protector and is a straight fit to the 1/2"ball - diamond plate from RAM mounts.
Rad mfg 19/17 rims with k60 scouts fitted
