The Heed upper bars work great with the Bumot skid plate. Exact setup I have:
I missed the key word “mid” bars. I looked at my lowers. Thanks
thanks for the tip. Contacted him and the product looks solid but i'm looking for a quick removal version and his is not that. CLOSE but just no cigar...the quest continues.
We have Heed crash bars and B&B Dakar bash plates on both bikes. Very good coverage
I assume just the upper Heed bars, not the full bunker (or whatever they call the full system)?
Edit: Looks like it, didn’t see your pictures at first.
Just the uppers.
The red bike had them with the full length Altrider skid plate but the combo left too much open. I'll be selling the Altrider one
I notice the everyone who has posted a picture of their bikes with the B&B skid plates still have that B&B sticker on it. Personal preference but I would want to remove that ASAP. Is the sticker under a clear coat or something that would make it hard to remove?
I think the sticker is removable. I was going to let rocks and logs wear them of, hahaha.
What brand of high fender kit are you guys running?
I went with the Camel ADV high fender kit for my ATAS, should be here next week. The Polisport SM line front fender (same fender as in the AltRider kit) and Acerbis KTM 85SX fork guards just arrived. I'll have to modify the fender at the back due to clearance issues with the Hepco & Becker bracing bow for the stock light bar and maybe space it out some but shouldn't be too bad.
Between the Camel ADV and AltRider high fender kits, there were some minor pros and cons to each. In the end, I preferred plastic fork guards over aluminum being that they are cheap and easy to replace. Both kits are about the same price in the end.
I do wish they offered a stainless braided rear brake line as an option to be included with the front lines. Currently searching for a readily available rear brake line for my ATAS without having to have one made.
Removed them before it even went on the bike... Used some sticker remover and they came off really easily. Have their rear rack as well, so I think I took three or four off in total.
It does look better without the stickes.
Your bike needs knobby tires, mostly kidding.
My 17 wanders with the Motoz Rallyz but I don't care. The Motoz GPS set on my wife's handle amazing until the trail gets wet
Anyone know if the Acerbis X-Factor handguards fit DCT AT’s?
The last couple trips have been long highway miles so these have worked pretty well, but I've got a set of Anakee Wilds waiting in the garage to go on later in the summer.
How are those bars to deal with when it comes time for air filter and other service? Partial removal or does it all come off?
I think partial removal. They haven't been on long enough to need air filter maintenance
I have the Heed upper bars on mine....you have to loosen and "butterfly" the bars to get the plastics off and access the air filters.
Adds probably 20 minutes to a filter change.
TKC80 front and Motoz GPS rear here. Great combo for me. 3000 miles on the rear and a little more in the front, wearing great. I expect at least 6000 miles from the set.
How long does it take you to do the filters start to finish with the Heed bars
It takes probably about an hour...going slow...and doing it by myself.
Pulling the piece of plastic under the nose, and replacing it is always the hardest step!
