Just make sure you get the ones that are ribbed for her pleasure
I already have the bottle opener, I just haven't decided top box or side cases for a mounting location.
Dogfish Head bay-bee!
Thanks, that's probably my best bet, still $80 by the time you add the other ring though, ouch.
not as tough as a pelican...but only 1/4 of the weight....go to your local music dealer to check them out...Guitar Center has lots of models...
Does it vibrate too?
I used 3/4" shrink tubing with rubber o rings to cover the machined aluminum shifter tip. Now I have a rubber tip, almost like the stock shifter.

Hey packrat... those are sweet....
Thank you, Sir!
Here's shot of my home made headlight and oil cooler protector:
The headlight cover is a scrap piece of Lexan, I have changed the white plastic bolts to black. The oil cooler screen closeup:
The screen was sourced from a mesh letter tray from Wal Mart
Attached the pieces to the frame tube with these little clamps:
I did the same with mine, except no O-rings. It works well, but I think I need two layers.
Not as fancy as Packrat's dash, but here's what I did two weekends back.
Took the Jet 4 Power, a Datel meter, and a $3 Hobby box from Radio Shack and made this completely sealed gizmo.
I joined the pos and neg wires for the J4P, and Datel and routed them to the centech, then ran the wire to the O2 Sensor. Pretty clean install.
I trust the datel a bit better than that all in one thermometer/voltmeter/clock/timer non-waterproof piece of crap Aerostich sells.
Now, ditch this box and make another box that holds all three if I can find a nifty digital thermometer to include.
I hand fabricated the lower mount for the RAM ball to fit on the cross bar for my E-Trex. Also added a mountain bike pump with two settings (high pressure or high volume).
I fabricated a tool tube from 3" PVC pipe (DWV sch 40), pressure plug and 3/16" x 1" aluminium flatstock. The tube also holds my soft bags out from under the rear fender.
Forward tube plug is rubber. Tube holds tire repair stuff including irons, allen set, electrical tape, zip ties, rachet and sockets. Wing nut is safetied with a clevis pin. Very robust and absolutely waterproof.
Heat shield to protect soft bags made from .030 aluminum with 1/4" stand off from pipe.
Project in progress... Kolpin 1.5 gallon fuel (or water... depending need) can mount will replace stock fender bag; combined with IMS tank this will allow at least 5.5 gallons of total fuel onboard if needed.
Self fabricated light bar (1/4" x 1 1/8 aluminum) with 6" hella 500 spots and forward mounted turn signals. The front also has self fabricated oil cooler protection made from very small steel mesh and 3/16" Lexan headlight and driving light covers with Velcro attachments.
MSR bottle holder for engine oil.
Ram ball mounted below the left windscreen stand off; used for GPS unit.
Hand protector extentions made from 4" rubber floor moulding and secured with two screws with self locking nuts.
I looked but didn't find any pictures after the final tweaks were out but you get the idea.
This is a dash shelf I made out of a piece of aluminum angle I found at the local recycler. Cut to shape, added modified u-bolts, and later coated the top with velcro. I have corresponding velcro on the back of my GPS, 12v multi-plug, and Sirius radio. I've ridden some rough terrain and everything has held just fine.
I guess I should add that I also trimmed that 2" of bolt you see sticking out towards the dash!
Great job on those light bars. Excellent design, and a sweet way to protect your turn signals , though, of course, the light might be a little less protected!
Is that a little bell hanging from the light bar near the fork tube?
Hmmm... The light bar has two swival joints. How do you keep them from swivaling?
