I am so impressed!

Wow, that is masterful work. I love, LOVE the mods. Hated the look of the MS, until you made it stunning. Did I mention I love the mods?

Kudos.

Any chance you could work with me on my '95 Elefant???

fantastic work!

I've been wanting Multi for long time, but never seen any of them upgraded as you did. Now I have some new "push" to go that way. Thank you.

One question. Since you had off on tarmac - looks like engine covers do not get damaged in the fall? Is that so?

I've not ridden an S model, so can't quote from experience. However, the Ohlins forks on my 996 racebike have a much wider range of adjustment than the Showas on my 916, so I'd guess........ probably not?

Good catch... there aren't any signals. I had some LED strips mounted to the grille that I removed. I've since gotten some "Dot" LEDs from Lockhart which are going to be mounted between the outside upper corner of the PIAAs and the bodywork.

Nope, no engine cover damage whatsoever.

The crash bars and (steel) Hypermotard pegs took the brunt. Both are good as new thanks to my friend, Mr. Krylon

I have an idea for a truly obnoxious/giant bashplate that I've sketched out, but it's on the back burner for a while.

Very nice work! I think you have something there that could be financially rewarding for you.

When you start selling these parts, be sure to start in Vendors.

Also, when are going to start on the Versys?

first rate work

one unsolicited opinion: lose the decals/stickers. they take away from the clean lines of the bike. while you are at it, black out the PIAA and acerbis while lettering.

I must say, that bike is an inspiration, great work, again.

cheers

Outstanding!

I had a black 2004 MTS, it worked so well I didn't really care what it looked like.....but would gladly have let you use it as a test mule for fabricating

Nice job.

Very Very nice!!!!

I have been thinking about the MS as a base for project.

The terra mostro (pictured below) I thought was a great idea but didn't get why they based it on a monster instead of the MS, and a starting price of 16,000 made me start looking around for options. I have a ST4S and love most everything about it except the fact it is not dirt worthy

Your fabrication looks top notch and very professional!!!!

Did you think about new taller forks and raising the rear a touch more ground clearance?

Sure, provide a test mule and a deposit for 50 of them...

I need to get the fixture done for the Multi ones first!

Ya know... I thought about grafting some forks on there from a KTM, but I feel like that's getting a little outside the scope of this project. K.I.S.S. As it is, the bike is good enough to get me into places I ought not to be with it anyway, and a better suspension would only make things 'worse'

The bike has 6.5" of travel up front, and almost 6" at the rear, so it's not too shabby to begin with. Works quite well for jumping railroad crossings

Yeow!

Great job!!

I ride a black MTS.S and your bike's the best looking one. Have you post your photos at multistrada.net?

Love the two extra headlights. Clever body protector and neat oil sump protector.

Now, how about a bicycle rack? I'm a mountain biker.
