Then I am satisfied for you!
I am going to put that there:

TAT planning..

Anyone done the TAT on the Sertao? I'm taking the plunge in July picking it up around Boise City, OKC. Doing New Mexico/Colorado/Utah routes. Due to time restraints will be shipping bike back to the East Coast and flying back. Just wanted to know if anyone done it specifically on the Sert.

Cheers..

The service bulliten is important because it will prevent your cam from being scored. My cam shaft had to be replaced because of the scoring.
I just purchased a used 2012 Sertao with 2200miles on it. I have had no starting issues with it over the last 12 rides with probably 3 or 4 starts and stops each ride. Does this mean I do not have the starting issue? or is it possible it has not appeared yet? I'm thinking of callin the previous owner to see if it had it, and if so, had it been taken in for correction. Feedback from the "atarter issue people" would be appreciated.

I'm sold! I can get it pretty fair from RevZilla. Once I manage to get the stock boat anchor off I'll be psyched to mount a tool tube in the empty spot. Where do I look for the tubes? And will the bike provide a easy place to mount it? I'm no backyard welder. Bolt-on is the way for me
I just found the Twisted Throttle tool tube. That'll work. Now how bout that mounting?
Thanks

Twisted throttle sells a very simple mount kit for the tool tube that works well on my Trax brackets

Yes Trax is an aluminum pannier set similar to any of the others. The tool tube mount kit from twisted throttle is a universal type fit and I'm pretty sure it will mount up easily to most rack systems.

What kind of noise, Clunk, scratching, WooHooing?
Did you notice any functionality issues as well?
Best of luck!

Should I get the Touratech 300-0230 foam air filter to replace stocker? Not necessarily looking for more performance. Just wondering if one is better than the other in terms of servicing. I only ride dirt roads so dust isn't a terrible problem. At the most I'll be in some when following my buddy

Thumbs down Touratech

I just think everyone should be aware that touratech does not seem to post bad reviews of products. It seem to only post ones that are postive. I recently added a comment simply pointing out a discrepancy in what bikes the nuvi 550/500 MvG lockable mount will fit and they did not post it under reviews.. By the way it will not work on our Sertao. I have heard from others that touratech only seems to post great reviews but it bothers me that we might not be getting the whole story when we relied on the reviews from this site.

Thanks. I'll call them and verify that the Zumo 660 will fit

Talked with Touratech and they said that you have to buy the Adjustable Windshield Bracket, P/N 300-5330 for $98
Then you adjust the windshield up and out and you can easily remove the GPS. With the unit back in the dock you can then move the windshield back down into the stock position and, wallah!
I'm in!
So far I'm very impressed with TT. Every question I've asked has been answered right away and they have been truly helpful. And their stuff is really cool looking too:)
