    Handguards under warranty? I'll doubt it... Mine are bend just in a small crash in the mud...No warranty off course... But they should have held it in my opinion. On the other hand, the Touratech bolts of the 2cm bar raisers did bend as well, as is the magura handlebar.(only slightly) Only 5 km/h, in deep mud...
    Front digs in, handlebars agains right hand side lock, and of I went... Enough to bend everything. Front brake reservoir did not move enough, and basically the handguard is bend against the reservoir... Handguard did move a bit too easy... But it's a great bike. I was lucky, because most of the time I'm flat out in second... about 70kmh or something... really need my smaller front sprocket now, after 8 weeks still waiting from two different suppliers... I think I'm the only one in Belgium or so :lol3

    I made this rack this weekend. Cost me $30 and time.

    I designed it so I can put different racks on top.

    Ace - would you be kind enough to post some pics of the details of your 'tidy tail' mod? Doesn't look like the Touratech kit or RG-Racing kit???

    In advance, thanks..,

    No, i'll be mounting it to the stock rack and then I can attach my Givi case for my daily commute and quickly remove it when hittin' the trails.
