    Mine took a full impact hit in my driveway. Nothing more than a scratched plastic bumper on side of guard. Unfortunately the foot peg pin and mount bent to shit!! I had to use a cutoff wheel and cut through the peg and spring to remove it. I then built up the peg with weld material and filed it even. The peg mount had to be bent back and painted. I have decided if it happens again I'll put the stock pegs back on. IMG_3253.JPG P7190012.JPG

    Nice job on the bike Bob. hope you start to feel better. Please keep me posted on the fender extender clearance. I though about getting one but was worried it would hang up on skid plate.

    It definitely might. My one did when I hit a pothole hard. Cracked front guard and extender went bye-bye...

    Got my replacement skid plate in and CSV shorty levers for the one's I broke on the last ride.

    Still waiting on windshield(MRA Vario touring) and SW Motech handguards.

    Still haven't figured a proper mirror solution out.

    Speaking of MRA Vario Touring windscreens:

    [​IMG]

    Got it + Madstad bracket on today. With everything up and tilted forward I get less top of the helmet buffeting then with the stock bracket + tall OEM, and with everything down and tilted towards me I get a lot more airflow. Seems to be more wind gently getting to my upper chest area as well, although I’ll need to verify on an actually warm and humid day. I actually kind of wish I’d purchased the screen and x-screen separately, even though that would’ve been significantly more - with the clamp on screen you can actually tilt it nearly flat and direct air right at your chest.

    I have the X-creen attached to my oem windshield. The plus is all the position possibilities and you can keep the OEM accessory bar. The minus is it's not easy to quickly adjust on the fly like the spoiler on the MRA windshield, which is one handed operation from what I remember on my TDM900 when I had one. There are four little locking mechanisms that have to be undone, and each side moves independently, so four adjustments are necessary. Best done while pulled over.

    Got the SW Motech Kobra (barkbusters) handguards, ASV shortie levers, MRA Vario windscreen installed.

    Still waiting on CRG Arrows with Rottweiler mounts, Barkbusters storm shields.

    Also need to put the new skid plate on and cannibalize the old one for the VanVan 200. IMG_20181001_132010.jpg

    Does the positioning of the Denali D4’s there impede any airflow into your radiator intakes?
    They look a safer position than mine are at the moment, but I’d rather maximise my airflow than worry about my fairings in a tip over

    Not that I've noticed. The C temp hasn't spiked at all or anything - and the previous owner had those lights on for thousands of miles, including some fairly gnarly offroad sessions in the summer.

    Hope this helps. I need to play with the aim on the right hand side a bit to get it to point outboard towards the shoulder. The one on the left is slightly outboard that way and provided nice added visibility when flying down rural highways the other night.

    Hey twinrider I did the horn modification that you posted. Bought the same parts and it all went together in about 10 minutes. Huge improvement. Thank you for your post, I appreciate it !!

    Glad you like it. I think the honk is just the right amount of loudness to command attention without pissing people off.

    Rox Risers. Had them on a Tiger. Just put them on the '13 S10. So awesome. I love it! Watched the Altrider video for the clutch and brake cable mod. Went to order their little mod kit for $5 but they wanted $21 shipping. And I live 70 miles from them. So, off to the hardware store for a $1 chunk of 3/16" ID fuel hose and an 85 cent clamp. No problems. Feels great!
