    If you're looking for a color change you'll want to order the left/right fuel tank spoilers, rather than the inner linings. The inner linings are just the little black pieces that sit between the radiator and the side plastics.

    Good spot - got the info from a dealer, I circled the pics of the bits I was looking at and they mailed me these numbers - I've just told them to double check and that they need to be orange in colour :)

    Mine did the same thing but when I filled the tank with gas it went away.

    I have a trick question for the troubleshooters here. On a dirt road ride yesterday I was cruising along at about 50mph where the rear wheel suddenly locked and the engine stalled. When I tried the rear brake, there was nothing there. My immediate thought was an engine seizure or rear brake caliper fell off. It was neither. The answer will amuse you and give you someone to laugh at.

    As soon as I got home, I ordered the Tusk soft bag quick release plates for my soft bags. These bags failed when one of the upper straps slipped out of it's buckle, because the straps were hear the end of their adjustment.

    @pjh66 - thats quite a hybrid; Xplor Pro forks, proper wheels (Talon, Dubya?) and some Rally colors (clear windscreen is sweet). What exactly you got going there you master of fusion you?

    Nice. Just noticed the Akra that comes with the Rally has no sparky. Dove into it this afternoon and think I’m gonna do the .035 screen wrap to the inside cap outlet. Should be easy fix. Was pissed at first, now I’m over it.

    for those running the brp sub mount with the scott's damper. does the mount offer the varied mounting points on the stock triple clamp? i.e., the triple clamp offers three mounting points and i use the one closest to the display away from the seat. this really makes a difference for me. does the scott's damper offer the ability to use the far mount closest to the display?

    I don’t have a Scott’s damper on my 790 so I could be wrong but I believe the pivot point for the damper has to be in line with the pivot point for the steering, meaning you can only mount it in one position. Not sure if it is the same as the closest point but I would imagine that it would be the same as the central holes.

    The instructions I got said I had to mount the sub damper in the middle bolt holes. FE3CFCFB-C5A4-4DA8-BAB4-D01F5124D88E_1_201_a.jpeg
