Got my brand new (to me!) 2006 XT225 last week and had almost every part they make for it ordered that night. Got KTM high bend Renthal fatbars and bar adapter/risers from pitposse. The adapters are sweet. I love billet. The grips are pretty sweet too. and I have those same bars on every other bike i've ever owned, so they're comfy and consistent! As usual, nothing I ever buy goes on nicely, so I had to grind off the little tabs that center the controls on the stock bars so they'd slide over these. No big deal, just a pain in the ass. Next on the list is folding mirrors! I plan on breaking those little silver ones soon enough... Happy Trails! panniers! These are the Teton 7.5" panniers. The racks seem very sturdy. They're slightly heavy, which I might notice, given the 225ish nature of my little 225... :/ The previous owner pimped it out with the sweet billllettttt rear rack. Which I love. I was always too cheap to buy one for myself.. but if it comes with the bike... SCORE! (I really belong on a KLR, but they're too tall). Heres the pannier itself. Nice lip around the top and seal. They seem really well made. the hinged lids open to the outside and seem like they're going to be pretty convenient! The latches are also pretty trick and suck the lid down onto that seal.. im not worried at all about them leaking... (except for the holes in the side where you bolt them down, but whatever... nothing a little RTV can't fix later) Heres a sweet pic of the entire setup so far. Pretty!!! Now that is a FINE looking motorbike if I don't say so myself! The panniers look a little large in this pic, but maybe i'm still getting used to them... Ah yes... The ever so sweet billet rear rack... what a pain in the ass it was... :huh It's a centimeter or so thicker than the regular bent metal racks this setup is made for. So, I set to work sourcing slightly longer bolts so that all points of the rack lined up on each side and the proper amount of thread was through the holes etc... and it worked! (I might also point out that the hardware supplied with the panniers was excellent) The problem arose when I got to the rear connector piece... I forgot that I was making the whole assembly wider because of my stupid sweet billet rear rack... Since the welder is broken, I halfassed it and bolted one side down normally and drilled 2 new holes on the other side... so it's a little off center, but I really want to use these for camping this weekend... I really hope no one notices due to them being so awestruck at the rest of this finely tuned and tricked out beast... . . . .
