    The man who is building my bike is Klaus from Strassenmeister Motorcylces (http://www.strassenmeister.net/). He is specialised in Streetfigthers but does all type of custom builds. He is is a top-notch guy and fun to work with. He also helped me build my Superduke:

    Have the Ralle-Moto shock bolt support (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=549863) ready to go on the bike! :D

    How's your bike, any updates on the fender & the forkguards?

    Do you have more pics of the 690 mask conversion? I too have a Superduke.

    Cdlabate, I'll shoot you a PM to keep this ontopic. Really only wanted to give credit to my mechanic. :thumb

    Exactly that support. If you have the frame out, you can weld that support directly to the frame making everything one single piece. Like that you will get an even better result! :D

    I don't know what to do with mine.. I'm opening a new thread to search for help eheh

    Does anyone have experience with the Cycra handguards on a Renthal Twinwall? Trying to figure out the best way to mount them. Looks like I'll have to order from the US because I cannot source the Twinwall kit from Europe. That is if the standard fatbar kit really won't fit the Twinwalls, does anyone know for sure? What about the triple mount system, would that work with the BMW and which one? Thanks!

    I'm no welding expert, but the frame is steel and the Rally Moto support is aluminum. Can you weld those together????

    The carbon engine covers you have. Are they whole replacements or do they just stick on the existing ones?

    Not planning to. I think for me the support will do as is.

    It covers the original part so is not a replacement.

    They are by Ilmberger Carbonparts: http://ilmberger-carbon.com. I think the TT ones don't provide a 100% cover and I didn't like that look.

    If all goes well frame, triples and swingarm should be back from powdercoating by the end of the week. Sent in the forklegs to get them anodized last week but they indicated a delivery time of three to four weeks :cry We'd like to have a rolling chassis by the end of the month.

    I love to hear where you are able to save weight. I always trying to drop some weight on my bike. I've done the obvious things... Shorai Ultra Light Battery (saves 8Lb) and carbon lip-on (saves about 7Lb).
    But if you come across any meaningful weight savings I'd love to hear. :ear

    Wunderlich manage to get get 66Lb off the bike!

    Andy, there has been attempts to shave as much as possible off the bike, I am not going that route for different reasons. Others have comes close to 190-195kg maybe (check out ZeTrailOuts bike and his list of mods) but as I wrote earlier I am not ready to drop ABS and go to a single front disc for example so I think that right there is my best possible figure. I think besides the Wunderlich propably the build by Gpmucci was the most extrem, I do not think he ever published a weight but maybe it was close to theirs. But both of them required massive changes to the tank etc.

    Ramon, thanks, hope I'll have an update for you guys soon!

    I was considering those. Unfortunately, just as much as I was ready to pay the premium for those plus having them shipped to Germany, they were ready to tell me that their setup would not be working with my bars and that they could not tell me if making my own inserts would do it (because it seems to come down to the inserts)... To be fair, it says on their homepage that they don't fit the Renthals. Too much money to just go ahead and try though.
