Let me get this strait mate, so you would like someone in the Phoenix area who has a 950SE to take it to Jesse's as a model to fit up some cans ?
That is just blaspheme shiny ! ! !
Its making me cringe
The SE has dignity as a dirt skirting hooligan , cans would be demeaning .

scanning brain for an analogy

Like putting a carpenters tool belt on a pornstar

Like putting a Tu-Tu on a soldier

Like putting a trailer hitch on a Maserati

Besides they will break your leg.
Cant do it

You should just get some Wolfman Expeditions

..... so what are you sayin .... don't sugar coat it mate tell it how it is

As we are two up on this to South America we will need the space... more than the wolfmans can offer (bike comes with them too)

Then I have a hooligan bike I can ship home post our trip, so now that we have that out of the way ....

..... no SE's will be hurt or maimed during this procedure

I'm having trouble visualizing this analogy...and it's important for me to understand this...as I want to help. Can someone please post a picture of a pornstar wearing a tool belt? That would greatly be appreciated and clear up matters in the name of science.

Yeah it was a little overkill but it added bout 2lbs to the bike and a whole lot of strength.

Umm there is one major flaw you are not considering.

The subframe on the SE is not designed for carrying that kind of load, take a search for sub-frame breakage in the forum. You will see what I mean.

If you compare it to the one on the adventure the difference is pretty obvious.

And since your already talking bout riding two up.

Yes aware of that, no easy way out other than Al Jesse looking to design the base brackets to come further down to create a bigger engineered triangle and support the weight further down rather than swinging it totally off the subframe.

...hence I want generous individual with a borrow bike to get measurements to start the fabbing.

It is a major pain but on my 990 I had a second hoop Tig Welded along the bottom of the subframe and boxed in the struts along each side to increase overall rigidity. Maybe do something like that to yours for added strength.

You should continue 2 up on a BMW r1200 GSA. I'm just over the border in new mexico ;)





In any case I look forward to following your report on the SE
