    Kidding himself if he thinks it isn't loud. The OEM pipe sounds better.

    Just being realistic when someone puts up a video showing others what to buy and fit to their bikes and they don't think it is too loud. We are not the only people out and about in the bush etc enjoying it, so would should we impact on others more than necessary?

    Just as others are free to decide if it is to loud for them.
    Not pushing it, don't care about it, just an option that I posted for the greater community.

    They do have some entertaining vids and yes they are a little Bogganesque. They are from Queensland after all.

    Wasn't having a go at you for putting the video up, don't have any problem with that. The comment was about the guy who made the video. Their videos are generally great to watch.

    Bits are arriving for the T7 build, I decided to keep my Heed crash bars, so there is a full set of Outback Motorteck crash bars in the flea market at half price if anyone wants a set.
    still waiting for Bumot gear and Barret muffler to arrive, plus a few more items.

    It makes the T700 dash really look like a mid 80's B&W Casio watch now.
    Is the power plug going in to it through a solid mount or is it a small plug that is straight or a right angle?

    Also, just to be aware. It has happened.

    I like the T7 dash, its simple easy to read and shows everything you need, thumb switch on the bars to scroll info

    Anyone fixated on economy you can even scroll through those stats

    the Zumo comes with a hard wired cradle

    and they could halve that dimension and it would still comply

    i do think the Montana may prove a little more robust and suited for off road. I really bought it more for the BMW and touring, all the features are brilliant

    I've actually got both cradles wired onto the T7 now, 4 small screws to swap cradles and tuck one away under the fairing

    The map set on the XT is much nicer in the bush than the Montana. I ran them aside by side before i sold the Montana.
    Would like someone to bring out a silicon type cover to protect those coners.
    Of course they bought a new 750 out a couple of months after the xt which looks very nice. Bloody expensive though.

    I think I’ll buy (bloody expensive ) or make a cradle. Its also a shame they didn't put the little torx screw in the latch like they have on montana. I stick a cable tie under the button to stop the honest thief just lifting it as they walk past at the servo or cafe

    I am after a new gps - have a 62s
    Was looking at a 680 or 700 as i thought they handle tracks better then the more ‘street’ biased Zumo ?
    Is this not the case ?
    Also cause i run the short screen was just going to bar mount
    Thoughts ?
