    Making custom graphics is a piece of cake:

    1 - Get yourself some 6mil vapour barier (clear plastic), then tape it to the bike wherever you want to make a graphic.
    2 -Trace the outline of the graphic you want with a sharpie marker
    3 - Lay your clear plastic over a the piece of vinyl you are going to make your grpahic from and tape it into place
    4 - Cut out the required shape with an exacto knife with a fresh new blade
    5 - Clean the area on the bike with rubbing alcohol
    6 - Mist the area lightly with a bit of soapy water solution (very little soap)
    7 - apply your vinyl and squeege the water out from undernearth with a credit card, starting from the centre.
    8 - Robert is your father's brother.

    Flanny- where can I source the steering damper assembly? I keep getting a "url not found" message when searching for RTT Motorsports.

    Check the Emig dampner against the RTT. Most of the posts I've seen favor the Emig triple clamp/dampner set up. I've got the Emig and have had no problems.

    The site is www.rttmotorsports.com

    Their site seems to be down right now for some reason...probably just updatting.

    The thing that I like about the RTT is that it is completely integrated into the top clamp, in one beautiful piece of art. Installation was a snap, and the tower uses the two frame bolt holes, so there was no griding to be done to get it all to fit. The only thing I had to do in terms of mods was to cut the channel for the steering lock down a few mm (1.5min with a dremel). I also like the fact that there is no damper sticking up on to of the bar clamp, leaving lots of space to mount the GPS.

    The remote switch for on the fly control is the business too.

    Plus, I think it winds up being less expensive than their compeditors when all is said and done.

    It looks like they are still working on their site..... Flanny, you wouldn't happen to have an old fashioned phone number for them, would you?
    I like the idea of the lower profile as well as utilizing the existing frame bolt holes. At this time I'm not convinced I need to change the clamp offset either, so the RTT looks like a decent option. The remote adjuster is cool too, but I think I could live without it were that a cheaper option. Have you any idea of retail to us ordinary schmoes?

    I've been using the RTT for more than a year (if only the thread search engine would work :baldy) and I'm very happy with the setup. Scuderia in SF sold it to me "ready to be mounted" for around $650 (includes the upper triple clamps) if I remember correctly.

    I just spoke with Breezy Morgan at RTT..They are currently upgrading their web server. The site will be down for 24hrs.

    Their phone number is 928-505-8088.

    I also spoke with Jay morgan, who designs the units, and they have confirmed that the steering lock no longer requires modification with their units (they now include a radial cut underneath to clear the lock).

    The retail is $699.00 for the complete unit including triple clamp, bar clamp and remote.
