[QUOTE=grant22;24468684]Broke my subframe today. Guess I'll start researching that. F my life[

There's lots of older threads on broken subframe

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=554395

There was someone that was repairing / welding and adding gussets for added strength. Sorry, all I remember now.

Yes this is the swedish Raid Design setup.
The product is of good quality and well engineered. Setup is pretty easy and mounting instructions are provided.
When riding at higher speeds (+50mls), the wind protection is quite noticable compared to the stock version. The helmet is free of turbulences (I am 6'1") and helmet is in the wind. Speedometer and GPS and roadbook or trip are easy to mount in the cockpit. We did not test the lighting power of the 2 xenon lights at night yet.

As for windscreen, I've done miles with and without the screen. I may be in the minority, but I find the bike considerable more comfortable WITHOUT the screen. I'm 6'4" and the screen just caused a lot of added chop.
+1

I couldn't agree more.
I'm 6' 1" & HATE windscreens as they put all the wind at my chest and / or helmet area

I'd much rather have natural wind flowing by me on my rides.

I've ridden thousands of miles Dual Sporting since 1986 WITHOUT a Windscreen

I've also run with and without with a preference for the latter. For me it depends on the particular screen, how fast, and for how long. An occasional long day at high speed is one thing, but two or three weeks of continuous battling is more than I can or want to take. Currently, the majority of my bikes are naked. I've got a Hyde screen for the SE that I use for multi-day runs where there's a potential for lots of high speed slab or bad weather. It seems to work OK for me at 6-1, although it does interfere a bit when standing. I've got the "touring" screen on my Duke 3 and I can't say there's any difference with or without. I recently picked up the KTM screen for my 690ER. I'm hopeful for improvement there. On the road the stock set-up is pretty tiring for me.

I think it was adv'er 'MommysLittleMonster' that was doing the subframe repairs, even had an exchange program. Not sure if he still does them, hasn't posted in a while and the website he listed on some of his posts is dead.

I'm running the Rick's Motorsport MOSFET regulator. It has longer wires. My old one never failed but I just liked the idea of a more reliable unit (though there seems to be some debate about that now). It's worked great for me so far. Both the regulator mount and skid plate are MV MotoVenture. I think I was the first blacked-out skid plate he made. Fantastic stuff!

Yup, I have mv's relocator. Maybe I'll consider the ricks VR

Currently dealing with a broken subframe, so I'd like to handle all this in one shot.

Thx

Previous owner box framed my rear subframe preventatively. As I recall, the aluminum used in the subframe is a slightly different mix than what's readily available at most shops. He had to special order the same material. Results have been fantastic thus far with several long distance rides carrying a near unreasonable amount of weight out back. (When you have to dismount your luggage to pick the bike back up off the ground, it's overpacked!)

Some photos of my recent ride thru the Adirondacks from Ausable to Stillwater.

This was near Lake Placid on my way back from Ausable Chasm.


This is just one of the prettiest mnt views South of the Ski Jumps at Lake Placid.



Not all my riding was on paved roads and I look forward to putting together video of my ride in the area North of Saranac Lake. I even found something I was told the Adirondacks did not have anymore. Seasonal highway not dedicated to snowmobiles and not dead end roads.

Video of the Kushaqua mud pond corridor from Rainbow lake to Loon lake in the Adirondacks. Compared to what we ride in Ohio this is very bland, but to find dirt roads that are not dead end roads in the Adirondacks is amazing. It's a DEC conspiracy.
