    Imagine this thread populated with 20 or 50 or 100 adopters. Yikes. But by then some uber motivated individual will already have the data laid out in a table of variables .. what fits, and more importantly HOW it fits in regards to bar position, riser, Scotts, handguards and so on. Then sticky that atop this thread so new comers, with little hair left to pull out, come looking for salvation.

    I just double checked. The TCM baseplate bolts to the tripleclamp on the most rearward hole. There is two locations for the risers to bolt to the baseplate. Mine is in the rear hole, which lines up with the middle set on the tripleclamp. If the risers are in the rear offset position they hit the Scott's, in the forward position they clear by just over 1/16". TCM offers two versions of the baseplate, I have version 1 which keeps the 90mm spread so it's compatable with the hbd handguards, the v2 are wider so they would be able to be flipped.

    That’s wild; I never knew they had two versions. I don’t remember a choice when I ordered either. I guess maybe they only do V2 now.

    You did a great job getting daylight between the bottom edge of the light housing and the top of the guard! :thumb

    More weekend testing.

    Can't state enough how much I like this bike and the Aurora kit!

    Finished up my sub-dash and installed a switch for the heated grips and one for the GPS. I like having the GPS wired to a constant on power-source so I can look at the GPS and check tracks when stopped, but I don't want to have to take the GPS off the bike every time I park it at home, so it's nice to have a switch to turn it off.

    Jesus...that last one blew me away! Gorgeous. You did a great job too of balancing the aesthetics with the practical.

    Freaking awesome! Did you get up high enough to get in the snow? I saw video from the DesertMC Hare and Hound and there was now everywhere!

    Public service announcement: Check the lower bolt of the spider clamp and make sure the extra threads are not hitting the fork tube, could be an expensive fork fix if the hit is hard enough.

    I had to trim mine w/ a dremmel to get rid of the contact:

    @Yellow Pig thanks for the heads up... Bolt removed and faced off on the linisher :)

    My fork tube indeed bears witness to a slight contact...

    Might look something like this... Lower bolt looked like the upper before trimming down. At full lock (on the stop, left) there's now at least 5mm clearance between the end of the bolt and the fork tube.

    Again thanks for the heads up Yellow Pig! Might pay for all Aurora kit owners to have a double check... Peace of mind.
