I have a mini air compressor on board. It's mounted on top of the front swingarm. I've carried a portable on trips but the bag and hose takes up valuable space. The hose is from an airbrush, as are the quick disconnect fittings.

Raised front of GSA seat, I'm 6.7"... didn't like the forward slope...


Thanks I will try to find the insert and bushing ... know it needs to be threaded inside to fit over the present bolt, since it is welded in.

Only place I could find it was in Germany so I bought it here:

I wouldn't bother if you're not really tall, otherwise you achieve the same by adjusting the seat front high and rear low.
Complete modification here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...3&postcount=10
I'm 100% happy the way it worked out and the ride is much more comfortable.

Looks like the oil lines to a Turbine. That and the safety wire scream out AMP.

I never liked the hard bag choices, they seem like filing cabinets hanging of the side. So I decided to go with soft bags but I was worried about how close to the muffler the left would get. So I made a heat shield. Two pieces of aluminum with spacers inbetween to give an air gap and sticky heat resistant tape on the inside. Not the most elegant but functional.
