I think that is a good solution. I'll just have to order some bolts. Thanks for the comment on the clamps. I was able to test the racks for about 50 mild gravel miles, and they seem very solid. I want to test them a little more, but I think this setup should be a good, long-term solution.dude! thats a great use of hydro clamps.
on the bolts, easy solution would be swap them out for some countersunk allen or philips head units(like what you have on the top plate)
Thanks, the bags will fit over 1 gal. rotopax cans.You got skills Will...Your shop looks killer too.
Nice way to pack your fuel. Wonder if you could hang your bags off that....
I wish that was my shop. I'm lucky enough to get to use the mechanic shop at work on the weekends....Your shop looks killer too.
It's wide. In fact, too wide to go straight through the posts keeping ATVs off of the single track sections in Rabbit Valley. We nailed one of them pretty hard with the left bag. This prompted my girlfriend to yell, "WIDE LOAD!" at me whenever we came within 10 feet of any potential route-altering obstacle.damn if i had an *** like that i'd put a fence around it and a head of cattle! i think it's almost as wide as my Vstrom with OEM bags haha. looks good man! i love that idea
Thanks! I'm putting SPS .64 springs in to start with. Did you use higher viscosity fork oil after you installed your new springs?I went with the .66kg springs from slavens...really helped the front end a lot! I know that the valving primarily controls the dive under heavy braking, but the springs did far more than any comp/rebound adjustments did. You've got an awesome build going man!
Thanks! 7 is beautiful Goshen County (Torrington, Lingle area).Sweet build!!
What county is 7?
