Yeah thanks - I know the Uptite one ($35 yikes!) and also the fancy ones which seem to also be alu just anodised. May bite the bullet and get the Uptite.

Anyone here running the hyde disk guard? I took mine off soon after I got it because we have mud around here, not rocks. I got tired of cleaning it out. I want to put it on for a trip. I've either got the wrong bolts, or the fork guard has to come off to make the bolts I have work. Not sure how it was on before. Maybe it uses zip ties. I'm thinking zip ties. I tried emailing Hyde racing twice, and not response for over a month now. It's getting close to departure date.

Most fit using the two outer (side) bottom fork guard bolts through two holes in the top of the guard and then through the fork guard - will need longer allen heads.

Thanks. It looks like the bolts I got with it are too short. That's why I probably zip tied it on last time.

JVB cobbled together this bracket for what I think resulted in a pretty slick led taillight/license plate install:

Nice!

What tail light is that? I've got the big old honker that came on the bike and wouldn't mind something more modern looking (although I do think it's awesome bmw is using the same light from thirty years ago...)

Thanks, didn't get it with the bike. $125... I'll have to think about it. I have a baja designs on another that is pretty weak, but the price was a third that.

I used this brake light: http://www.amazon.com/Motorcycle-Int...led+tail+light

$20 and does the job.

How are these holding up against the test of time?

I sold mine about a year ago to a BMW tech, with about 1k miles on it and about 55hours. I miss the trails but I don't miss the bike. Thinking about getting back into it!
