Please, could you give me some suggestions how to build a proper bracket?
You'll need the bracket of an yamaha SR500, which can be modified so it hangs under the top bracket, and is supported by a "ski" on the headstock, in future i will make somemore pictures to explain the modification, so watch R3B in the future, although it will take this lazy motorbiker some weeks to percolate it into a understanable story.

I hope to build my own R3B2, if you agree with the name


PS:
Are the TCK 80 so dangereuse in wet road? I thought to use them also for each day..
They look so great and wilde on the GS!
Nooow, they're not dangerous, it's more like the grip of tourances now, while the german made TKC's had more grip in the cold Anakees, and the same dependable incoming slide behaviour.

The Korean TKC is more like the Tourance, "now you have grip, and then you don't have anything anymore"



P.S. this actually was deu to an oilspill btw.

Very nice. I REALLY like the look and doing this would also cover up some deep scratches on my Jesse's. Does the undercoating require the clear coat to be durable or would it rub off without it?

Or...I'm guessing a coat of spray can bedliner would suffice, based on the number of tanks coated with it I've seen here in other postings

Yes, I am a dealer so that's my excuse. The last time I rode mine I decided I am not getting any younger, stronger or taller. So I put Hyper Pro shorter shocks on it and shaved a bit of weight. Kept the ABS because I like it. Put on Conti road attacks. Now it looks like a giant supermoto. Barb

Dude,
your gs looks freaking great, I have always thought of retro fitting the R1100R instrument cluster and headlight to mine to make it look more like a tougher version of the R, And now I have finally found someone else with the genius idea.

I was looking a the silver pieces in between the beak and the tank. But you're right, I'm trying to fit a ADV tank up.

Doesn't it stand to reason that the profile of the tank right there would be the same on either bike or either tank?

The silver part is just a cover panel. It's the same regardless of which tank you use.

The plastic tanks and metal tanks have slightly different profiles at the front. However, the ADV tank should use the same rubber supports as the regular metal tanks. These supports fill the gap between the tank and the cover panel / lateral trim panels up front. The part numbers for the rubber supports are:

46632324873 - Left side
46632324874 - Right side

I have two used rubbers (I know, that sounds bad, but they are in good shape) PM me if you want them. Barb
