Hi long time since we rode together aye, the track wasn't too bad i has been graded recently so its quite good, although a bit loose for road tyres.

I heard you 1150 has gain 50 extra cc

Main Bracket - Draft 2 #1

After a while of finishing this finally got around to post the pics.

After some trial an error this is what I ended up with


Installed looks like


Now for the power box position on the bracket


view from above


front


all the parts at this stage, the looser cutter was getting tired

this two pieces are the mountings for the dashboard, route holder, or map, etc (it turns out they don't work quite well but that's what I have now) ... they're have the rubber mount for vibration dampening

Main Bracket - Draft 2 #2

ok accidentally hit submit oh well (amateur)

another close up


now to the assembly line, this is the main part the backbone if you like


next step is putting the side holders


the rest


all together ready for another test


fitting test, anyway
and it does fit


Then installed with all the lights, spacers, zip-ties for cables, loc-nut nuts etc


So, next is a modification to indicator holders and cable tidy up. Note its done however haven't got pics yet
I'm still not happy with the dashboard holder, but will have to wait as I'm working on something else that also has 3 letters like BMW and has one letter in common but in different position, also has 2 wheels

Things I was considering where in no particular order
1. weight
2. strength
3. support vibration
4. access to all the bits
5. space to put cables tidy
6. use as little bolt and nuts types as possible
7. Make it a single unit that can be fully detached from the bike without having to put the biek apart
8. Clear for steering, mirrors, handlebars, cables etc

The 4 square centimeters of your bracket that is filling my entire screen looks pretty good. Any chance of resizing the pics so we can see the whole job at once?

Cheers
Clint

See, if you had two monitors like me the pics would still be too wide

pampaX,
any news on your 2nd version?

Also, re-read your thread and the adjustable levers really got me thinking!!

Except the spacer for clutch lever, did it fit OK?
Reason I ask is that X-Ch uses a clutch cable with a thicker than average outer sheath and it won't fit some universal levers - is this one able to accept stock clutch cable?
How about the brake - fit OK?

Cheers!

Hi the second version got bent on incursion to a very nasty uphill section or rather on the way out of there when the battery went flat and had to push bike. I made another version #3, it seems slightly better although I'm yet to take some pics.

The levers went ok. the only thing was the clutch side were the pin didn't fit. However it had alloy bush which I replaced with a narrower one I made out of spare bit of alloy I had laying around . I may have some pics somewhere, but it wasn't a big problem.

Wheel nuts

The problem with the axle nuts on the bike is that they're of an unusual size. Then I also have another bike thus I decided to buy the ktm ones someone recommended as they're only $12 for both. That way I only have one tool for wheels for both bikes on my bumbag


front


sorry for crappy pics

Do these fit the stock axle?
Where did you buy the nuts from?
Thanks!

Any idea what size socket fits the KTM nuts?

Also, what size axle and threading are they bolting on to? I have a F650GS w/ YZ250F front end and I'd love to reduce the 3 different sizes I need to make a change.
