problem is you gotta weld the tabs onto the frame... not a big deal but little bit of work involved...

Now I have to figure out what I'm going to do... would be great if I could salvage my SW bars and do a similar mod.


You bet SW-motech's have the top loop i was talked about... but did at one point consider getting something like them and running a cross brace thru the frame and bolt both sides much like the adv-spec stuff

Is that scrape marks on the side of the tank.........How deep are they???? Looks nasty....or just superficial........ If you don`t like the wind noise on the contour..... I hacked mine.....and installed a wired mike that I clip inside the helmet, and are now able to hear other things...... Like @$#%&...and

saw that! looks really cool! problem is I dunno if its worth the money for me at lease!

not too deep at all really.... the tank is durable as all get out!

Did you go with the 50/50 (street/dirt) version?
Are they the oem size?
Did you get them sealed or "nuetech tubliss"?
just had the front wheel superlaced with an excel rim smaller size... more narrow... none tubeless and still 21"
