Here's my latest mod.
HAAA!!! That's cute! ^^
Bump. I really enjoy seeing what you guys come up with.
The new Original SUDZ Handguards - the best on the market, tested on more miles than you can count and approved for all weather riding.
I've got a pair of custom molded handguards and they were cheap too!
had to replace the lic. place light. found this at Farm and Fleet
Here is what I came up with to move the hard bags back a few inches.
moved the bags back a bit and tipped up slightly. this was to give my wife a little more room to move her feet. this allows her to change her foot position. I didn't post pictures of the top mounts because they are below the givi trunk plate, but i can post if anyone wants to see the details.
the other thing that made this possible was that the po cut the rear fender short so the cross brace is actually below and behind the license plate.
Aux power point.
I mainly used it for my GPS, but now I'm going to direct wire my gps, so this will be available for charging a phone. The only thing that i don't like about this location is that when something is plugged it, it's difficult to access the ignition key.
a few shots of the shelf i installed. this is looking down as i'm standing on the pegs
this is what it looks like from the seat.
got a temp gauge (from a fish tank) and my battery bug. Room for a gear indicator and a few other things.
This was a piece of aerospace grade aluminum sheet that I had on hand from a different project. when i first put it on, i left it bare, but it reflected up off the windscreen so I covered it. I'm not sold on the wire conduit on the edges, but it works for now.
I had a rectangular piece, i just rounded out the corners and drilled 2 holes to mount it. I mounted it with the screws that attache the front fairing together under the windscreen. I also put a couple rubber washers under the shelf so it doesn't rub on the fairing.
pic from the side.
you can see the bend on the right. that is where it attaches.
I only have a gps on the top, but there is plenty of room for other things.
I have a few more projects i'm still working on. I'll post those pictures when i get them finished.
Speaks for itself. Oh, and it doesn't fall over
I really like my Hepco Becker Explorer boxes, as the on/off locking latch is super strong and easy to pop the boxes off and on. But I also like Pelican boxes, and had an extra one sitting around.
I got a friend to cut some aluminum for me, and bought a spare top case rack latch (from M.A.P in Australia) (along with a matching key core) and got to it.
The way the HB top case fits into the top rack is a bit odd, but once sorted is very secure -- it isn't a hook but pressure that keeps it in place there, and then the latch is secure (even without the part in the back it will still say on). I added some gorilla tape to make it really tight, but that probably isn't necessary.
Perfect size for small things when I'm on a day trip or just around town.
Bottom of the case, unmounted:
Inside of the case, with matching aluminum cut so the screws don't rip through. I probably could have gone with large washers, but this is bombproof:
Here it is mounted, showing the aluminum "block" that holds it in (and yes, I need to trim the tape...):
Use it all the time!
I have the same temp gauge, works great!
Yes, it does work well. I thought mine was going bad because the display was messed up, but it just needed a new battery.
Where did y'all get the temp gauges?
Here's a few.
My temp gauge is an aquarium tank temp gauge. I think i got it at Petco or PetSmart.
I think it was like 5 bucks or so.
I wouldn't like a guillotine in front of my chest
i think the angle makes it look bad. if you look at this picture from the side, it would be pretty hard to actually contact the edge of the shelf (but never say never I suppose).
Thanks for the responses on the temp gauges!
