    I installed the cj designs fan today. I am intrigued about the flat screws.... mine seemed to have lots of clearance between the screws and the core. Should I be worried?

    Also, whoever said they can fit that fan without removing the right tank and the glovebox must have the hands of a concert pianist. My fingers more closely resemble a regular penis.:huh

    That's what I did wrong. Shoulda use my penis......

    I had these awesome domed head screws in my fan, which rubbed thru the radiator core. Now they are flat and can not stuff my new rad!

    It have the rubber o-ring around the cap? I had one on an R6 once and I had problems with it sealing to tightly. If mine didn't vibrate off at 15,000 RPM yours shouldn't bouncing around off road.

    The first one basically spun off and flew away, spent an hour looking for it :bluduh
    It was probablt my fault for not checking it :dunno

    I like it better than stock, never was keen on using the key to get gas.
    Would be any improvement to drill and tap a small screw to attach a cable so I don't drop it when fueling up. Been placing it in the center compartment which is easy enough.

    Then I went for a ride!

    Just a short ride so far but seems well worth the investment.

    Thanks to Alex at Konflict Motorsport.

    Just did an 6 hours enduro event on my new 2013 350 SXF which i´ve done enduro ready. I managed 2nd in the 6 hours class.
    An rare pic of me looking badass...

    Looks like you need a new centerstand. Easy to get it up there though, eh?:D

    Sidestand is a problem right now as bike sits at almost 45deg. I'll make an adjustable extension welding on some threaded rod+nut.

    At least it's easy to put on the center stand but chain lubing and tire changing needs a piece of lumber. I don't know what to do with it yet, the budget all went in the suspenders. :D

    Just commuted to work and back home.
    The lock showed from Touratech so last night I stuck the top box on. Now, I can lock up more gear!:clap Like that helmet.

    Fat guy on a big bike. The top box is almost over my head when the bike is on the centerstand. :eek1

    Those are the summer weight Sidi Crossfires. I'm beta testing them. I can't get the bike on the centerstand using them like I could the 1150 Adventure.
    The parts for my side stand and bash plate arrived from CJ Designs tonight. :thumb
    Now, I need to go buy a new T-45 since the cheapie from Pep Boys shattered the last time I used it.

    Finally! A weekend project that took over three weeks....

    New bars with enough control space for all the nav stuff for TSD rally.
    Custom Dash to hold all the nav/timing gear for TSD rally-ugly but functional and strong.
    HDB guards with mirrors and top clamp for switchgear and power socket.
    Wiring for all of the above.
    CPR intake, snap out, and doghouse, with slight mods to fuzeblock in dash to fit.
    Oil change.
    New fuel filters. The old ones didn't look terrible, but at 17,000 miles it seemed like time. I used the fuel filters from Gefr with no issues.
    New breather hose for the safaris.
    Added basic programmable speedo/computer/voltmeter at eyeline next to the endure computer so the speedo will match the TSD calcs.

    Yeah, if I didn't come to work in the dark, go home in the dark, and ride the bike in the dark....

    Soon.
