Does anyone know if the wire headlight guard has to be removed to fit the touratech light guard or can it say on?

The factory guard has to come off to put the Touratech on.

Go to FleaBay and search for surplus military containers. I got 2 that are about the same size as the luggage boxes on my BMW K100LT for $132.00 delivered. And there damn near indestructible! There real easy to repaint as there make of fiberglass. Forest

I found a new farkle for you guys!




A nicely pre-curved brake lever! One of a kind, nicely done.


I was lurking for some random Uly's parts on Ebay and, believe it or not, I found this lever for sale there. The listing doesn't mention any kind of damage...just like this lever was designed like this from factory.

Hey I have one of those!!!

Funny thing is it straightened out just fine and lives in my spare parts now (seriously doubt it would survive another dirt nap...).

I i noticed that lever on ebay too wow.

Does anyone here have hard luggage for sale?

Does anyone here have barkbusters fitted?

My left handguard vibrates against the end cap, its pretty loud, any idea on what I could use to dampen the noise. Some kind of removable putty would work.

I have Barkbusters on my '09 XB12X. They work great and are solid.

My left bar end buzzes too. I just pop it in with my hand and it stops (till the next time)..

Is it straight forward to fit the barkbusters, are any special mods needed to make them fit and do they rattle at all?

Here's the only pic I have of them. They fit easily and are 100 times more sturdy than the stockers (which I put on my Ural.)

Those things are so brittle I'd think you would have to heat it to do that.

I have the Kaoko Throttle Lock on my Uly which incorporates bar end weights as well. Do you think the Barkbusters can be bent out an inch or so to accommodate these? Thanks, Lon

I have Palmer Products bar ends weights on mine,they cut down on vibes and pinch the handguards so they can't come off at the end.
Google Palmer Products they have lots of cool stuff for Uly's.

I've had a Kaoko and Cycra ProBends on my Uly for years. No worries.
