Bmw g450x seat...

I am in the process of making a mold to make a sold base pan so I can make a real seat, would anyone be interested in the pan only so you can build your own seat.
Let me know ,will post progress inthe next 2 weeks

Does any one have 17inch wheels for the G450X? What's the best way to go about making a set?

I would really like a better seat.
I thought that a seat fastened with quick pins would be easy enought to remove to fuel .

what did you have in mind ?

I saw the speedbrain desing, it is what i had in mind too just to cover the fuel cap, but also need the front bracket to slip it into place. Will move the bike into the work shop this week and will start with the mold for the seat and goo from there.

The Blackbird/Speedbrain/Touratech G450X replacement seat will not fit the Sarari front aux tank just FYI

The Safari front aux tank requires using the stock seat since the stock seat is made of foam it will distort easily at the front where the Safari tank stradles the frame.

Good to know. I sent a message to another inmate asking to buy his Safari tank.

I have a starter question I was hoping you guys migt be able to help with.

Sometimes when I hit the starter button nothing happens. Nothing as in absolutely nothing. No clicking, engine turnover etc etc. Usually, if I hit it a few more times the bike fires up as expected - but obviously something is wrong.

I haven't been stuck with the bike due to this - but given that there is no kick starter I want to stay a step ahead on addressing this.

So, have any of you had a similar problem and if so how have you addressed it?

I already took the handlebar starter appart in an effort to clean it - but all the internals lool to be - well - internal - so there was really nothing accesible to clean.
