Rick,

Got my master cylinder guard in, thanks!

Unfortunately, I managed to drop my cell phone at speed, so pictures will take a little while.

On sale already? Why you I oughtta...

I like the new cylinder guard. I've needed this for a while, because my master cylinder is showing significant wear from my right boot sliding over it. I got the part in the mail and stuck the envelope in my riding jacket to deal with the next day. During a bit of slack time the next day at the office, I opened up the package to find a nice little piece of bent and cut aluminum. I did a little filing (a few passes with a file blade in a multitool) to clean up a sharp edge or two, and headed outside to put the thing on.

Installation was quick and easy, just two bolts. On the single cylinder F650GS it looks like it belongs there. Rick was right about the aluminum color being right. It blends in well with the frame in that general area, and looks good both up close and at a distance. Frankly, I don't think the picture he's using does the piece justice, because it looks less integrated on that machine than it does on mine. More important, it is a substantial enough piece that it should provide some real protection to an important part of my motorcycle.

*EDIT* Before and after:



And then the full effect:

Loving it

Got my rack and the fit is great, no fudging or forcing just screw it on.
Here are a few pics of the tack loaded for a five day trip.




Thanks for the great service and fast shipping Rick,
Brian

Thumb Parts Received

Just want to thank you for the quick shipping on the parts (rear res. and master cylinder guard). Although I haven't had a chance to install them yet, I see no problems and am very impressed with how well they are made. My only comment (and it's a small one) is that I wonder if the top part of the reservoir cover could be left open, so you can top up without having to take the whole thing off? Again, only a small comment and I haven't had the bike long enough to know if this is even an issue.

Moments later...... I couldn't wait and went and put 'em on. They look great and I retract my last statement. So easy to remove that reservoir better to have it protected.

Thanks again and cheers,

JT

My pieces came in yesterday and I installed them this morning in just a few minutes. Excellent quality. Count me among the many other happy customers.

Dakar Rack

We figured you would probably be pretty busy with all the other farkles but we really need that rack. See, I personally have been tired of carrying all my gear on my back. Hell, the last trip I had I shipped most of it with my boss. Not good for the ego (where ever that is). Best thing about waiting is knowing we'll be able to carry other bikes on the back of ours with little issue. Can't wait till I get mine. First thing I'm gonna do is haul a couple cords of wood.
