    Not to be annoying, but if you have an 850, who cares what the 1200 installation requires? On my 850 I only had to swap the springs.

    I had no luck finding anything other than a giant heavy wrench which is why I made my own tool. If there is interest I may consider building a few of these next winter when I have time on my hands.

    I'm not sure what it weighs but it's not heavy and fits well in my tool kit.

    I have an inexpensive wrench coming from the land of Cinda that I am going to cut down to a smaller size... hopefully when all done it will work and not weigh a ton

    I’ll text him. He spends considerable chunks of time in the woods. He’s an instructor at the AF survival school, so he’s probably out.

    Yep, thanks! He wrote back tonight. Did yours mount in the same spot as the one from Motorrad in dresden? I'm getting a Puig windscreen and need to be sure it will clear that

    Looking to get risers for 750, just want to confirm that the bars are 7/8, not 1 1/8 thanks! Considering rox 2" pivot risers, welcome any input

    The bars are indeed 7/8. I have installed the Rox 2" pivot risers on my 750. The clutch cable is a little tight but I made it work. The other cables are all fine. I had to modify an Allen key to reach the bolts and I don't have the pivot risers tilted back very far.

    Thanks Mike! Did you have to remove the nav mount to use them? Now that you've installed them, do you think it's still the best choice? I feel like I need the 2 inches, but maybe the 1.75 would work as well?

    Horizoneyes,
    I put the nav mount back on top of the Rox risers. That said, I would probably go with the 1.75" just to spare the clutch cable. I had to remove the bracket that the clutch cable passes through.

    Regarding tools for the rear 34 mm nut. I have several sets of Motion Pro Combo Aluminum levers with of various Hex Sizes. On line they do not offer a 34, they only go to 32. I sent note to them and they confirm they do not offer a 34 at this time. They will investigate perhaps for the future

    That was the first thing I looked for when I realized I needed a dedicated wrench/socket for the bike. I didn't even have a 34mm socket in my box... Larger and smaller yes but no 34.
    The Dewalt socket is fairly light and compact and the price is right. I have an old breaker bar that has a round shank and handle. I cut the larger knurled grip section off years ago so it would fit in an ammo box that I kept my emergency trailer tools in and used a piece of pipe as an extension so it slides and is collapsable... That with the socket on it fits in my tool bag nicely.

    Interesting. That last one looks like what I would want. Odd, it eliminates the step up between fr & RR altogether.
    Does the price vary based on specific details so much that they can't list any price?

    Any idea what they start at?
