    We don't have them on the sight as there has been no interest. Here is a pic of what one looks like.
    You would attach your bag webbing through the plastic loop, the g-hook goes around the rack pipe and back on itself. When tightened the assembly will tighten on the rack/pipe.

    They are actually very good quality and fit - made right here in Canada.
    I've had them on my XR650 since 2014 and they've taken a real beating and haven't gone out of shape yet.
    My father ordered the set for his gen 2 KLR this past summer is very happy with them.

    Anyone waiting on a rally seat? It seems as if they are on permanent back order.

    I asked my usual dealer and they said the first batch was spoken for. I stopped by another dealer and he said he had three coming in March, but no idea which colors. I put a deposit down right then!

    I've had a SW Motech rack on mine for 8 months now, used a Kreiga US20 on it and now I've mounted a small box. It even fits with the Rally Raid soft luggage racks :D

    I have the Sw motech rack and the rally raid racks, both are good, wish the rear RACK was back just a touch farther for the mosko reckless system but it’s not bad

    MikeCMP, what wind deflectors are those? I’m looking for something exactly like those. I pulled the much abused MSR deflectors off my KDX so I could get in a quick ride Friday when it warmed into the mid-thirties:

    Those are hippo hands, the enduro style I forget the name, the smallest ones. I actually think they are too small as my hands still get cold even with heated grips.

    other than that they are not bad, easy on and off.

    Yes, my hands got cold after an hour or so with the MSR deflectors, but being able to see the switches is the trade off. Those Hippo Hands look similar in coverage. Thanks much.

    It looks like hippo hands just did a product refresh so the newer ones may cover more. I would probably get the larger ones if I were to do it again.

    I don’t get why my hands get so cold though my hands are wrapped around most of the way, must be turbulent air wrapping g around

    Yesterday replaced the rear tail monstrosity with Camels tidy tail. Great video if you get into a spot but really didn’t even need it. Simple and very well designed. A quality product.
    I love working on this bike. Yamaha’s are in my opinion right up there with BMW in quality.
    Anyway I am very glad I chose the Camel product.

    I agree, like the Camel products, they are all well thought out.

    there are some gaps in the tail that let crud into the rear with the tail tidy. Need to see if there is a way to seal that off.

    I used the cyclops signals, it’s great he came out with and option for the stock signals

    Will that work with the older Wolfman Mount Tab circa 2010 and earlier?

    The issue I have with that G-hook mounting on painted structures is depending on how it lays, most of the time it contacts the tubing and will likely rub paint off. My Kreigas use it and that's why I use the Velcro D-rings that Wolfman used to make because otherwise, it touches the rear rack bars and the metal on metal contact will rub off the paint.

    Most parts are on backorder. I ordered a low seat and a chain guide from a vendor in October and it just keeps getting pushed back.

    I see what you are saying, take a very close look at how the ghook is attached to 1 webbing Not both. It will keep the ghook off the pipe. Woof!e IMG_20191018_144802.jpg

    To be honest these are sooo easy to make.
    Ingredients:
    1" velcro One Wrap-Amazon
    1" Metal D-Rings-Amazon
    Cut the One Wrap about 10 inches or so, Wrap around tightly Pipe once to protect finish, on second wrap add D-Ring continue to wrap until you run out of One Wrap-Done.
    We sewed the D-Ring to the end just so no one would loose it.
