    did you order from the link that i provided?
    to be honest, when i got mine, i didnt know what that thing (screwed into the clutch housing) was for, i just shaped up the clutch lever, looking at the original, fit it in, and it worked.

    Price was good on the link so ya ordered right from there, took a bit longer to get than I thought but I wasn't in a hurry. It looks like chokozip's modification is just about the same as I was planing on doing, for mine.

    even as it stands right now I am giving the brake lever an A+. :thumb

    Hey Buzzez...i know they make a black rotopax also...what I hope to do is get one and then feed it like an auxillary with quick disconnects. Its slightly more ideal to have the tank connected to the fuel system instead of just as storage. Great cost effective version i reckon. Did you consider doing this or are you happy to stop and refill?

    I've got original CRG's on my GSXR, and I can tell you, there is no difference whatsoever on the looks!

    This chinese knock offs feel a little heavier, but that's it.. Just $19 shipped! :eek1

    Some pics of my TT rallye fairing install.

    Still needs some sorting out, wiring-wise.

    Really happy with the kit, but hoped a better finish on the fairing itself, its really rough.

    Some pre-assembly to make the install easier.

    headlight, gauges, front fender etc.. everything removed according to instructions.

    I had to extend the right and left control wires in order to fit all the wiring behind the bracket, some soldering was in order... 3 wires on the right, 11 on the left.

    Test fitting the fairing,

    Stage one almost finished.. the fairing still needs paint.

    I'm planning on fitting a Centech or Fuseblocks box to tide up all the wiring, and maybe fitting a TTO digital water temp gauge, RPM gauge and some 12v socket in the future..

    Before you do that look at the pdm60 from rowe electronics.....available at nippy normans in the uk. They are brilliant and no fuses....and can be setup in such a way than Aux lights do not need relays!

    Mikecbrxx on the move.....

    Wow, a Toyota in the background. Every snowflake is unique, that's why it never snows in Asia. Generic parts, bolted together. Originality and creativity scores pretty low. I hope you subject this bike to some amazing experiences to make up for it. :rofl

    If I remember correctly, its http://www.bajadesigns.com/ProductDetail?ItemNumber=260498
    I read about it on the forum here.. Someone used boiling water to reform it a bit to fit behind luggage...
    Royal Tiger has it on his bike, http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/k574/RoyalTiger13/G650x-1_zpsa7cea258.jpg

    If you look him up it was probably his posts that I saw before..

    SchillerM is spot on and justgastanks.com seems to be the place to go. In the main XChallenge thread index my first writeup starts at post 4213: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20106361&postcount=4213

    The TBarstows and my version #2 start around the mid 4270s to 4280.

    One of the best mods I have made to the bike. Wish I did it sooner!
