Your seat fell off.
Well I had assumed that the pillion pegs needed to come off - which they didn’t - but I took them off anyway to clean up the back end a bit.
Can I ask you - do you have an aftermarket ‘tune’ like Coober running with your Sharon exhaust, or are you running an unchanged ECU?
My Bell Star full face doesn't fit.
No, i remounted it on top of the box. Better view down the trail.
Did it reuse any of the OE fasteners? The reason I ask is I installed the Touratech skid plate reinforcement on mine and me my bike and my EE skid plate are at the KTM Rally in Colorado. I was just wondering if I would be able to install it without the OE hardware?
BTW- The Touratech skid plate reinforcement worked great for me today. These were several large logs I had to cross and I bottomed the bike out on the skid plate hard several times with no case damage.
it comes with a full hardware kit. the only one I'd recommend you reuse is the flanged bolt that goes up vertically in the tank protector.
I didn't care about the MOLLE part, but if you search for MOLLE pouch you get eleventy-seven choices, from very cheap to somewhat expensive. I went with a $12 or so small pouch that I cable tied to the handlebars. Perfect for my needs.
Doesn't touch the top of the tank. Doesn't get in the way.
Yep...my GT’s cruise will not work with the TC off....
Can you post some pics of the plate bottom? I’m curious to see how the plate itself holds up.
What is even the point of such a tiny bag? At that point you might as well just put your stuff in your pockets.
To not have stuff in your pockets, and stuff.
I guess it's me you asked, sorry not my bike in the picture it's from a youtube video.
But please let us know how it goes with the decat Sharon exhaust on you'r scoot I belive we all are interested in your feedback.
^^Thanks, Brilloman! Looks a little roughhoused but still intact.
What chipperhteripper said. Also, I have multiple sets of riding gear. This way what I need is on the bike regardless of the gear I'm wearing.
A bar bag is cool for easy access at stops, the fuel pump, coffee stop... But for me I like to have the essentials with me especially in an 'off' situation, the bike could (and generally will) be some metres away from where I (eventually) end up, therefore.... A Kriega R20 backpack... I never leave home without one and have crash tested mine... ad infinitum :)
For the crucial, necessary small things...
Wetwipes & TP.
Cable ties, various + Race tape.
Microfibre cloths (one wet / one dry - in ziplock plastic bags).
An original leatherman tool.
Small compact 1st Aid kit.
Nurofen / Panadol Forte.
Spare bike key.
And a DNR - Signed & Dated statement.
I don't bother with hand cream, lip balm, sunscreen, replellant... YRMV.
OK - what are Jelly Snakes?
Tyre repair items?
Mr. Ed's Moto custom seat review:
First a little perspective and context. After about 2300 miles.ish I realized the stock seat was a solid 150 mile a day seat. After that my ass ached, my back ached and my legs ached. This bike for me, and how I'm setting it up, is a long range ride on slab, with some dirt roads and wild camping places thrown in. I will not be racing this bike or doing single track...usually.
So, I read about this place in Albany Oregon named Mr Ed's Moto that build custom...read that tailor fit to your butt, seats. Since I live in SCal I though this was the perfect opportunity for a road trip. Last Thursday I arrived at Ed's and the magic commenced. It begins with you sitting in the bike and Ryan and Ed starting to layout the position of where you sit on the bike as well as how high, or low, you want the seat The stock seat is then dismantled and cut apart. New high quality foam is then layered and crafted and shaping begins. I sat on the bike multiple times as the process of shaping and layering a few types of foam continued. Finally, I choose the covering material and Ed sewed up the cover to my specs.
The final test of the seat is continuing as I head south towards home. Yesterday I did a 550 mile day, including through San Francisco's stop and, well, stop traffic. My KTM instantly became a mile muncher. The seat is in a nuetral position and wide enough to support my whole butt. Yet, retained the narrowness at the front to easily allow feet down stops. I'm no longer shifting all over the seat trying to find comfort during long rides.
I'll give a longer term update as I complete a cross country trip in Jan, butt, so far I'm impressed.
All told $500.
Signed DNR; remarkable. I applaud you my friend! If only more of my patients thought this well in advance. Christ, even end stage CA patients' families have to fumble about searching for one and only after I question it's possible existence..."standby for the IO/first epi guys .. I think they said they were looking...$%^&".
