I've also slapped up a nice looking headlight cover out of the same material but 4 or 6mm with some mesh. I have'nt painted or mounted it yet but when I finish them off I'll stick a couple of pics up.
I look forward to seeing them.There's nothing more satisfying than making stuff up yourself rather than buying off the shelf accessories is there.

Did any of you guys with side racks buy them from a store or are they all made from scratch? Just asking as i checked the H&B sight they have racks for everything else bar the xtz660?

I'm led to belive that Hepco Becker do make luggage racks for the Tenere, and the Gobi and aluminium panniers attach to them via the proper mounts.
Ron at MAP will know, if he doesn't he will find out for you.

Welcome Jock enjoy your new ride mate and will see you around soon i am sure .
Just thought i would post this up for you guys as i have had a lot of trouble with the well nuts of late, they get old and brittle and break very easy .
Example here


So i decided to have a look around on the net for something a little different that will do the same job a little stronger hopefuly stumbled across these on e-bay $15 delivered to my door in 3 days

1 peice of solid rubber no way that it will brek off like the standard ones. Anyways i was wrapped with them no more vibrating noises while the fairing hits the crash bars

Hey Dave, I have the same problem with the wellnuts - 2 questions:
- how do you get those to stay in the hole (they dont have a "shoulder" like the old ones)?
- What are they called on ebay?

Thanks mate!

They are a tight fit in the hole and the downwards pressure from the fairing to the bracket seems to keep them in tight. Here is a link were you can find them. I ordered these on Saturday night and arived this morning from the UK probably quicker then my local dealer could get them.
