Ridetosea - Thats the beauty of this website, no matter what your pervesion (land yacht BMW GS's to trials bikes), there's people on here suffering the same disease. A great place for insight and opinions for biking across the board. Best of luck wiht your 500 search.
That is my suspicion. Mine has not yet arrived to confirm. But that is why I built the radiator braces in the manner I did. They are "anti sweep" as much as I could manage. Also should fit the 13 L. If the braces interfere they will be modified.
