BTW I don't want the riser style ones that sit on top of the stock mounts, I actually want as little rise as possible, just want to convert to pro taper fat bars 1 1/8" size.
Help appreciated!
Maybe the offset riser?

You mean like this...


These were stock on my CRF250X. They have a bigger diameter bolt than the DR ones - 12 vs 10 from memory. I just drilled out the stock DR mounts to suit. I also added another tapped hole in the bottom of the mount to provide more options for front/rear positioning. They can be turned around giving 4 different bar positions.

Torpedo 7 was selling what appeared to be the same TAG mounts - not listing them now though.

I have these on mine:

Which came with the Procycle fat bar kit. They are the same height as the originals and have a 4mm offset.

Yep.

I've got a DG-O and had to bend the front tab slightly out to get it to align properly.....

So my Wolfman Enduro tank bag arrived today Slowly getting Daisy ready for an adventure.

Just sorting out rear luggage now that will accommodate me camping and carrying my own stuff.

Bike came fitting with a home made rack and wine carriers (gotta be happy about that). I've currently got an RJays Explorer bag sitting over the back portion of the seat with a swag (with sleeping bag, mattress & pillow rolled inside) on the rear rack. Tools and hammer can go in one wine rack & of course wine should go in the other :

Looking at a set of spot/fog LED lights now and you guys have provided a heap of info as to WHAT to buy. But how's the best way to mount them with an IMS 20lt tank? (I haven't found anything as yet to help me here).

Thanks & sorry for the long winded rabble.

Going on a test ride on the weekend will post some pics up of her packed up when I get back.

Best pic I have handy. A piece of 4 mm sheet bent, but not creased to reduce/eliminate cracking and attached to the barkbuster mount.




Works good with HID in main light.

I took the front round orange reflectors off the standard brackets and used the brackets as is . . . possibly a little exposed in a fall, but the bar/tank may help out there on flat ground (no rocks). I put a bit of red reflective tape back on the brackets to maintain parking visibility. I can't recall, but may have had to widen the holes a poofteenth for the particular LEDs I fitted

OK, yep good spot but I still require the indicators. Guess it's as matter of just making something that best suits what you want. Also thought of possibly mounting them off a bracket attached to the top of the fender/base of the head light.

BergDonk - I don't have enough room where my busters mount (also have a SPOT & GPS mounted on the bars) and the bracket for the buster we are using I'd doubt would take the weight.

Thanks guys, might have to do some fiddling.

Hi guys

About to fit a 14t front sprocket and not sure which side should be closest to the gearbox.
Any help would be great. See pics

My indicators are still in stock position.

You could possibly reverse the brackets and mount LEDs higher but that would probably foul the tank, and as I want to use them as "daytime running lights" I don't want to obscure others view of the blinkers.

(You can see a permanently mounted Merit plug on the headlight shroud - fitted for charging accessories on overnight trips)

14T Sprocket

Hi CCCC,

When I fitted my 14T the boss (raised section on the sprocket) went towards the engine. Also I hope you received a new triangular retention plate with the sprocket otherwise you are going to have grind down the original retainer edge as the chain can bind on the original retainer when used with the 14T sprocket.
Cheers and Good Luck

good idea to throw a countershaft seal retainer on if your bike doesn't have one already. $20 at suzuki and stops the seal popping out and draining your oil etc.

Cool, thanks Goosefeather!

I don't actually have the reflectors as you however think that may be just a little low to run as spotties. Will have some more thought about it.

On another note:

I've just got back from an overnight squirt up the Oxley with my better half and had some issues with her starting again when hot. Bikes in neutral, no neutral light and she won't start. It's almost like it's still thinks it's in gear (but it's not). At this stage it's difficult to engage first and almost impossible to get second when stopped trying to find neutral. Have to wait until she's cooled down (in her own time of course...I know typical female) before she'll identify neutral and start.

Otherwise a great weekend.
