Any progress with the tank/fairing conversion?
We're waiting on the parts - no tank in Australia so it'll be a few weeks.
There are some problems with ATAS tanks.
Sooner or later honda will (probably) fix it.
I hope you get the improved one.
Is there a way to check? IE after serial number X you are good to go?
i was planning to insist on an additional sealant layer before the installation - hope it'll fix the issue
Sorry, no idea.
Do you really need a special O2 sensor removal tool?
Gettin' ready to replace exhaust pipes.
isn't it just a 17mm which could come off with a open ended wrench?
I've removed O2 sensors on my super tenere with some wd-40 and an open ended wrench.
Figured it out. Just need to hold the loom from turning with the nut- a two handed operation wthout special tool needed.
Any Utah people want to ride from Strawberry over the mtns to rt6 , then do the entire length of skyline drive to I-70 and then punch it back up I-15 on Monday?
Nothing technical, just dirt road blastin' with great views from the peaks.
Installed panniers, ~4mpg lower, at all speeds above 40mph.
I see Givi makes a screen that they advertise as being about 2" shorter than the standard OEM screen, does anyone else sell a short screen?
Mine is the MRA shorty. I had a hard time getting any air with the stock screen.

Crazy day of riding today. Got out with a buddy and headed into cherokee national forest. Managed to get on a "road" not on any map and thought we were on the one on the map. I don't think very highly of myself off-road, but was very pleased this all ended well.
It was one obstacle after another. Rock slides..... The b and b bash plate did its job. There were several hard hits and scrapes and would absolutely have crushed the exhaust and probably case if not for a large beefy plate. Washouts.... Ruts, trees, branches, thorns, rocks, sand...
Things just kept deteriorating. We crossed probably 10-15 of these.....
Today's ride was definitely not why I bought the AT, but it did incredibly well. @Junglejeff1 asked about the GPS tires in the mud and I'm shocked how well they did. I really expected to be fucked today, but tires did their job.
We found a fire tower back towards the main gravel.
Other than my new Arizona pinstripes, it was a great labor day.
Rich Mountain Fire Tower?
i was there in May of this year riding the SM1000 with my AT buddy.
I feel your pain lol.Looks like a great ride and glad you had friends with.That is some slimy looking stuff.Would love to been along for that ride.
Yep! I'm going to have to camp up there some night....such an awesome spot.
It sometimes hurts but it is so much fun and great memories.How in the hell did you get that bike out.I never swamped mine that bad.My nuts hurt looking at that pick.
Yeah...we were talking about that after we got out. You don't plan to do stupid shit. When we were in there..... No way would we have tried it.... But you get seduced. One more obstacle.... Ok one more. Then we *thought* we were getting close to another road, so didn't want to turn around thinking we're past half the way. In the end we had to turn around anyway because of huge downed trees.....about a 6 hour round trip.
I got behind the bike and bounced it up and down with a push forward while he pulled on it. We had to pull the plugs and clean out the carbs. The AT made it no problem.
