it's a must have

I definitely recommend getting one of these to anybody

as we have now got a bike with a broken casing in the middle of Georgia the rider didn't even know he did the damage it bottomed out over a big stone just at the wrong place

the next thing he knew oil was leaking out everywhere when we stopped

its a big headache now I need to get the bike back to Italy back to base and rebuild the engine

Sorry Guys, I’ve made a mistake with the MK2 relocaters. The M10x70mm bolt that goes through the centre stand mounting point, the thread is about 6mm too long and may rub on the centre stands springs.

ACP just checked for me. So can you please check for yourselves, solution is to cut/file off the excess. I will get some M10x65mm bolts next week to rectify this for the new relocaters in the future and if you need another bolt please mail me and I’ll pop one in the post to you. If you have the one of the first relocaters, SE also please check.

Sorry for the cock up, but I thought the new plates could do with a longer bolt, when in actual fact the M10x65mm were fine in the firsrt place. I haven't got a centre stand on my bike so sorry I missed this.

Don't sweat the extra 5mm bolt length Charlie, I installed my (your) kit and am very happy with the solution and shortening the bolt ain't no big deal.
Love your work.

Fitted mine

Fitted a couple of weeks back.

I use the BDCW skid plate and all fits fine.

No probs with stand after a fully loaded two up camping trip to West Scotland last week.

Thanks Charlie!

Fits GREAT!

Have to add Charlie worked with me to get the sidestand to me prior to my trip.

Comments:
Part is HEAVY and by that I mean that is a good deal. It's stout and should fend of any offenders that want to take a whack at that sidestand area. It fitted up 'PERFECTLY' even with the tighter tolerances that you've spec'd.

One comment to those mounting it up. Be sure to get the lower front bolt through the side stand bracket troqued to spec prior to bolting the mount plate up on the bike itself. There is no room to tighten the nyloc nut supplied due to lack of clearance on the casting for the stand. This isn't a problem nor a oversight on Charlie's part just the circumstances of the new superior strength nuts/bolts supplied.




BTW I have a Slaven's Racing Skid plate and there were no issues fitting it with that skid plate.

Good stuff, now off to Baja to test it out...

Thanks Charlie!
