I have a 2.5 hour commute every other week and they come in handy for sure.
Yes, by about 2 inches or so. Here are a couple of camparison photos. I tried to get the before and after photos from about the same position but they aren't quite perfect.
I decided to try them after having issues with my throttle hand going numb. I haven't had any issues since switching.
Cables reached fine, brake hose barely reached but was able to make it work. I would recommend an extension for it if I had it to do over.
Nice.I am using cr high bend now.They are shorter than stock and using 2" rox risers.Makes them a hair lower than stockers with risers.I want to get rid of the risers because it is to easy to knock them crooked no matter how tight they are.Looks like the adventure bars would solve this issue.When the bike was stock the oem bars caused my upper back to get the burn.I am tall so bringing them up helped a lot.I had to pop the rubber grommet thing out of holder to give brake hose some play.
Looks like a nice setup. I might give it a try. I get numbness, mostly in my clutch hand. BTW, is that an RV-12 in the background?
They helped a lot for me, they are the smell sweep as stock but the differences in height and rise work out a whole lot better.
Sadly it is not mine, I am currently storing it short term for the owner. It is a neat little aircraft though, perhaps one day!
I checked this one out last week but wifey put the kabosh on it lol.
A few changes...
No roll bars.
If you do anything off highway you really want some kind of bars.Tall bike is easy to drop especially on off camber stuff.I am tall with 36" inseam and the big bastard has got away on me a few times.I just jump out of the way so I don't break a leg.My bars have saved me a fortune in honda parts.I hate the cage look but they do work.
Does anyone have a link to the acerbis handguards in the US? I can’t find anything and I think the bark busters are kinda ugly
Acerbis Brush handguard
The Photoshop is with my Honda CRF450X8.
I don’t see either listed online in English. Most sites link to the “X-factory”. It also does not show if i need a bike-specific mounting kit, like the bark busters
It’s an universal kit. It has several sizes inside.
very good handguards and i have a set on my XR400.
Looks different than the ones on that Africa twin
There is an excellent post WAY back in here showing how to light and wire the Honda Fog light switch. Works great on mine
there you go
I bought an AS’19 and I did several pics to 2020.
Africa Twin manual 15.000€.
Africa Twin DCT 16.150€.
Africa Twin Adventure Sports manual 18.500€.
Well, I put Big Red to bed for the winter yesterday. First job on the list is the starter switch. Good season, other than the starter switch flaking out when it gets wet, everything else held up.
Super impressed with the SKF seals on the forks. 2 seasons and they haven't leaked at all.
