That looks very effective.
Here is what I built to do the same thing plus hold my GPS.
First I made a templet.
From the templet I made the (two) brackets.
After the brackets were made (and powder coated) I clamped it to the bike (using a 3/8 bolt as a locator) and drilled the mounting holes.
Mounting hardware and the 3/8 locating bolt.
Right side mounted.
Left side mounted.
The hole on very the top of the mount I will put a cross bar that will hold my GPS. End result is I have a dual purpose bike with a dual purpose bracket. It stiffens the wind screen mount and holds my GPS.
Because of my metal inventory, and my contacts, my cost on this project was $00.00.
Thanks to all the people.
Gain more weight?! Damn I'm already heavy, no more! :)
Here are some proper pictures of this past afternoon ride:
Looks like some kind of marital aid I've not seen before.
You know what they say "Once you've had black...."
I see you recycle your Depends to cushion your sex toys. Great idea.
You know pluric not everyone is as kinky as you are.
That is a good idea about the recycled Depends.
So, the "Once you've had black...." thing....does that apply to the bike or ....... Nah never mind.... horrible thoughts
The "Depends" thing took a while to figure . Its a Yank thing obviously
Very cool! Great idea
After my weekend ride, the two braces performed great. I honestly didn't pay much attention to them, I guess that was due to my Montana not flopping around like before...
Ray you are getting up in age and might need Depends just like pluric does now. I am sure he can recommend which ones to buy.
I think I prefer the C discussion !
Mounted up the ACD Skid.... I mean HOT plate...
Can't wait to try out a few steaks....
You can stop hiding now Jamie..It's all on.
And thank ACD for all the holes for me..
The KLR version burst into flames for some reason
How many bolts to take off the skidplate for an oil change?
2 big ones and 4 small ones. But there have been improvements so I have heard.
Can you get any more specific?
PM Jaumev. He's the Development rider.
I think there is removable oil filter cover and extra holes for the drain plugs so you don't have to remove it.
Don't know whether that is his personal version or a production change though.
That's his personal version. Been in touch with Cedric and it sounds like they are willing to make one-off changes at an extra cost. Will check into those mods.
Ok, ok... here I am.. no more hiding at last
Wasn't so difficult isn't it? but you don't need to cook it!! :eek1
A nice piece of history!!
Yeah... Cedric is angry with me... I'm quicker than him developing farkles…
I’m trying to convince him to do the mods but he’s too busy, hope he can use my bike to do the changes in some weeks.
This is my version: change the front to fit the 21” wheel, add a different filter cover with bolts to take it off and bigger holes to drain the oil. Work fine.
