    I just looked at the reply I did to your first post about this and it's a little rude. I apologize, I didn't intend that.

    Hi can somebody help me ... looking for a billet connector bar that bolts to the handlebar clamps so I can connect to Cycra Probend CRM hand guard bars (to eliminate the clamp on the handle bar). Have seen picture below somewhere on the forum. Thanks a lot for any help!

    I was disappointed as well with their racks. Not so much the rack itself but the cheap hardware they sent with it. Nothing like the video. Now I have 2 zinc coated 13mm bolts for the rear of the racks. And the on the muffler side that tab and bolt would not go in with scratching the heck out of the muffler. If they would have made that tab that inserts into the passenger footpeg a half inch shorter. Problem would have been solved. But I eventually got it sorted. But what a pita. The cheap hardware has me irked the most and now I have 13mm bolts when I don't think there were any before. Now I have to carry another wrench. I'll probably source better hardware myself to resolve.

    Depends how skinny you want to go with the wheels. I run a Excel 1.85 front with extra HD tube and a 4.25 rear thats got the Outex tubeless. I think you can go to 3.5” rear and still use the Outex to make it tubeless. There really isn’t a safe option for a 1.85 tubeless front wheel (that I know of). I like having the option to plug the rear because, let’s be honest, it’s a hell of a lot easier than removing the wheel and breaking bead etc. I’m guessing there’s a few of you who love changing that big ass rear tube in the back country and can do it in less than 3 minutes. I ain’t one of em.

    My humble contribution to the great lever debate. I hacksawed the oem clutch lever about 5-10 mm inboard of the precut break channel on the stock lever. Then filed it smooth and rounded the edges. Finally, put a ½ in - ¼ in heat shrink sleeve on the end and heat gunned it on tight after cutting it to proper length. There is a small hole on outboard end to allow drainage from both ends. Allows for full squeeze with 2 fingers with no pinch. Left the brake lever untouched since pinching not an issue and works fine as is for 2 finger actuation.

    They suck. It’s surprising that both Rottweiler and Mosko are so into them. Maybe because they are one of the only games in town. Besides Tourajunk.

    I installed OM skid plate crash bar combo (yeah I know everyone thinks crash bars suck) and the holes did not line up completely but by leaving all the bolts loose until they were all started I had enough play to get the threads started. I then torqued them down. It was really the only solution I saw that met my goals. I wanted a skid plate that didn't mount to the bottom of the engine and also wanted somewhere to place my feet on long trips (that's the reason for the crash bars). So far so good.

    We all buy stuff we know may cause problems becuase we want whatever it happens to be. As long as it suits our desires, we go into it with eyes wide open, and accept the potential consequences then it's all good.

    Folks rag on accesories that dont perform as advertised which helps potential buyers make decisions based on information other than just what the manufacturer offers.

    Remember cheap bolt on pre-runner bars that were so popular that for awhile it seemed every truck had them? Owners recounting stories of bent frames rather than just a bent bumper as the result of hitting anyhing with them even lightly changed the demand for them considerably but you can still buy them and some folks still want them for the look. *Shrug*

    Has anyone considered, or currently using a bike cover of any sort? I just got back from a long trip, and we had intended to stay at a motel on the way home, but eventually just powered through. I had a 10x12 tarp I was planning to use to keep prying-eyes and monsoon rains off the bike.

    I'd like is something that covers at least mid-way down the wheels or more, waterproof, with grommets or a way to fasten it to the bike, and low-key looking. Under $50 would be nice. Light-weight and able to compact would be preferred.
