What am I missing, ansel adams?
@alonad what material did you go for on the shapeways site? "Versatile Plastic" ?? or something else??
I went for: "Black Natural Versatile Plastic"

Thanks @Kiwi Pete strong enough to drill the two holes needed to fix ok?? How does it perform when offroad? no vibrations etc?
Looks like a great solution and saves time waiting for anything else. Cheers.
I'm yet to fit it or use it ;-) It's just such an elegant solution and I like the fact the bloke (Eric, I believe) put it out there for free. I will be taking it easy when drilling the holes and, if there's any issue in that area, will reinforce with something.
I won't comment on the material resistance as I have no idea what the "versatile plastic" is :) Apparently sintered nylon? Should be fine.
As for vibration, there is no problem off road. I rode the bike in fairly gnarly places already and the mount didn't bulge. The mount I use is really low profile, but I had it installed with a RAM short arm before getting my current female mount and it was not vibrating there either despite the longer lever.
I just installed a new version on my bike. Same model as the old one, but I changed some of the print parameters like more fill and wider walls to increase robustness. It took forever to print (Almost 6 hours!), and it is now a bit more discrete as I printed this one in black.
If you have other parts you would think would be useful for the 790, send me your ideas, I can try to model them.
It’s not always a race bro
I used the dark gray multi jet with the glass bids
I read and saw videos on line that the glass beads make it stronger
No, but I’m not trying to expend unnecessary energy. My comment was in response to mud specifically.
I ain’t gonna try and get dirty so I can look good in the Starbucks parking lot, but if A to B takes me through some in the course of my travels, so be it.
Thanks Art - and thanks for sharing - going to order from shapeways - is the new version the one you shared via the link here? https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3611546
New ideas - Would be great to have a rear rack, similar to stock, lightweight that can keep the bull horns at the side but allow for better mounting points for bags etc. The stock one doesn't have enough IMO
Hey Art, thanks for designing this mate. Only other thing I can think of at this point is a discrete USB port - annoys me that you need to have a cigarette lighter to USB converter on the bike. It's just something else you need to remove when parking up - first world problem and all that ;-)
Then get a Harley, LOL.
I opted for ABS instead hoping i didn't mess up. Used www.3dhubs.com
Sorry if asked before but my search wasnt finding it. Does the tft display have gps built into it?
Can you elaborate? Thanks!
I don’t know if this is new information or not, but this post says pricing for the fancy factory suspension is 3600 and 2200 usd for the forks and shock, respectively.
That’s pretty outrageous for cone valves and preload adjustability up front, and hi and lo speed compression out back, if you ask me.
If I was looking to drop that kind of loot, I’d be looking at least towards the sexy Ohlins bits with at least the sexy hard ano tubes of whichever color you choose, black or gold.
