You can get in big trouble real quick out there though...
RacerXS,

Sorry to take so long to get back. I am retired but serve as an adjunct prof here at a local college and got caught up in administrative stuff. Nelson Hills is a great place for riding here and I would encourage those who treck all the way to Baja to look at Southern Nevada as a good alternative. If you come here again pm me in advance and I can show you a whole bunch of really good trails not far from LV.

Cheers

I have the Coyote and am ordering the mojavi . The coyote sits bach jusst a bit and I can get to the fuel cap. Is the mojavi that much different?
Dave does make good stuff...even better than TT
thanks
Hi Bob,

Sorry, I have been absent from this thread for a few weeks. Access to the fuel cap in no problem. I simply pull the quick release strap on my KTM tailbag and lift it off. The cap is then easily accessible as it sits directly under the tailbag. All in all I think the bag worked out really well without messing up gassing. Removal of the seat is another issue. I haven't done so since installing the Mojave but, since the rear mounting webbing is somewhat buried in the gas cap recess, I think I will just loosen the side straps and lift the Mojave back to get the seat off. A small price to pay for a great bag.

Cheers,

Tom

They are Dual Star mirrors which mount to the bars with stainless hose clamps. You have a view to the rear under your arms. They survive get-offs quit well.

Modded Touratech Racks

Already had the Wolfman Expedition panniers, so I needed racks but resented buying the Wolfman racks because I didn't like the look of them and because the 690 Enduro versions were more expensive (at least here in the UK) than for other bikes? I did however like the small welded on hoops that replace the velcro straps. I bought a 2 metre length (that's 6'6" to you old fashioned Imperial only types) of 6mm stainless bar, cut eight x 70mm lengths and made a former to bend them around in the vice with the aid of a large hammer. I then had a friend TiG weld them in place. Due to the additional framework on the TT racks, I was unable to place the hoops equally on the racks but decided that maining the correct position of the hoops relative to one another was more important. I also decided that to mount a ToolTube to the inside of the right hand rack, following the lines of the fuel tank. For this I made a couple of cardboard templates to shape and once happy, cut the real thing from 3mm stainless plate and had my friend weld them on.









Very happy with the results, just need to sort out better fasteners on Saturday. Have made another 8 hoops for another inmates 690 TT racks, will have them welded on at the weekend.

From reading thsi thread I will pick up some 'material' later today and spend some time making a top rack. I have some ideas and will post the endresults (if its not too embarassing). It'll be kind of Redneck version, but hopefully it'll work.

I just talk to Berg who builds the Wolfman racks and he currently plans to come out with a rear luggage rack for the 690 in a few weeks. He isn't sure yet if it's going to be a flip up or stationary rack.

There's so few options for rear racks. I did look at the pictures of the SW Moto rack and it does not seem big enough to strap a 20 " wide dry (that will hold a tent & sleeping bag) sack too. The Touratech rack (again in the pictures) doesn't look sturdy IMO. If Berg doesn't build this rack I'm not sure what I will use for a rear rack.

What do you use as the tool tube in that picture? Ealier I made one from PVC piping on the SE (2 to 1 pipe and made left side free), but it was kind of ugly....

Hey Possu,

If you didn't know you can get that yellow writing off with carb or brake cleaner.

Krylon Fusion paint also works well for hieroglyphics.

Haha... I like the description of the product: 'Can also be used as small tool holder for motorcycles and bicycles'
I get the point.
