Nice day in Spain....
Ok Ranex. Great pics. Please educate us on what we are seeing?? Where is that?
This is the natural park of Duraton River in Guadalajara. The third photograph is the monastery or Nuestra Señora de los Angeles de la Hoz and the fourth photograph is San Frutos hermitage.
I wish it wasn't 1900 kms away from where I'm sitting
Glad you like my screen. I'll try to get a photo of how I mounted it. Mine too, touches the turn signal but has not been a problem. Thanks,
Great part of the trip in the Alpes:
Sunbrother, This looks like a flimsy setup, however, it works great. Did part of the TAT last fall and other dirt roads around here without any issues. Let me know if this helps. Thanks
That helps me a lot...I have mine different position right now...but I am going to adjust like yours....thank you so much.
put some locktite on the mounting screws. Mine came loose first time out.
I have seen two posts which talk about making the al. subframe M6 holes pass-through and using bolts'n'nuts with big washers. One from Colebatch and another here. It is straightforward for the two rear holes but the front ones would cut straight into the weld of a cross piece which supports seat lock. I do not see pass-through holes in this picture either, maybe were drilled out later?
I am a bit concerned about structural integrity of the subframe as the welds (or the nearby areas to be precise) are the weakest. Would the drilling through the welds and shaving the cross piece to fit big washers weaken the subframe? Drilling through the middle of the pipe will not weaken the pipe much, that's common knowledge. But it is a bit more involved in this case...
Just drill and tap them to 8mm or even 10 mm holes with no issues.
Erik from Hotrod welding uses steel inserts if the thread is farked. They are from Wurth but need a special tool to install IIRC.
Just back from a 8,152 mile trip in 30 days, through many countries. Bike did great, never missed a beat and stayed upright.

Well done, brother.
Anybody replaced the exhaust hanger on their SR Racing exhaust? My busted yesterday, and I didn't even fall on it! Somehow these zip ties actually got me home without melting.
The muffler also has a tendency to want to rotate, so I think that the replacement will need a hanger with a better offset much like Akrapovic does.
Jim, great trip report!
Which windscreen are you using there?
Hey everyone... Maybe i'm just tired but can't seem to find a straight answer pon de tinternet... How much fork oil goes into the xcountry forks?? They're standard btw....
