So did you get the stalling problem sorted out?

Bugger. I obviously can't link from that website, photos uploaded to a different site and should now display inline:

Rear rack showing back mount (kinda). I welded a tab onto the bottom of the sub-frame and bolted thru it. The rear of the rack bolts onto the existing mud-guard frame.



Subframe reinforcement. I used flat to triangulate the subframe.



Now, my rack was reasonably rural in comparison to Doug's, one of the guys coming with me to Aussie. He spent days bending up his frame, and it looks more like a bloody work of art than a rack ...



Finished product:



Hope that was worth waiting for.

i'm with onaXR on this one, worth waiting for. your pal doug should go into buisiness. days - woulda taken me years to get all that bent and it still would have been all jacked up.

i see you both welded a piece into the lower V where the rear frame meets the front down leg. is that a known weak spot? i thought about it but didn't put anything there. maybe i should.

Cheers Guys.

I've never seen a frame break there, but the paint was starting to craze. We're thinking of carrying a lot of weight, and when the welder's right there it's pretty easy to chuck a gusset in.

We also gusseted the x-member rear of the airbox and the acerbis front tank mounts, based on photos from this guy's site: http://www.geocities.com/wwbagwell/

Think I'm gonna hafta sew me up one of these, give the bike a finished look with the desert tank >>> http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TANK-...spagenameZWDVW <<<

I have to wonder though, how many yards of material I'll go through before I get a fit like that, check out the XR 600 colors.

It's now got the stigma of a "prior salvage" title. Putting it back stock with take off parts just seems wrong. I am set on the corbin seat but can't decide which tank to use. I have a dual headlight bucket from an FZR600 that I was going to use but that single round trailtech looks really good.

I got the IMS, but if I had to do it all over again, I would go with the Clarke

www.clarkemfg.com

Better fit, better quality, plus they have that snazzy aluminum fuel cap.

my corbin wouldn't have fit with the acerbis tank without modification. could not turn the bars lock to lock without reforming the acerbis with a heat gun. had to move the front turn signals up to just mount through the lower holes. getting to the spark plug is a pain and the mounts will break sooner or later. after i break this one i will buy a clark.

Thanks guys. Looks like the Clarke is the clear choice. Now if I could just decide on a color.
