Why did the Wolfman racks not fit? What did you have to change/fabricate?

I may get some of these racks/bags this year. Love the system and they are only 5 miles away.

The lower mount hits the can when mounted like that. We cut it off and made one with more curve. My buddy done not have a pipe bender so we used 1 x 1/4 flat steel. Its strong but not as strong as the stock version. They have a fab shop making the racks for them. since you are so close you might be able to have them make a strong lower mount. I will post up pics when I get home.

Cool, thanks. Yes, Eric said it may not work, but could have it modified if not.

Nice tail BTW.

I see you recycled your TT rack...


Me too (yesterday)...


This set up is temporary using a tail section/tail light a buddy loaned me so I can get street legal. Later I'll fab a proper tail for her with carbon fiber, but will likely use the TT rack on top. Everything else was crushed and mangled in the wreck but that aluminum rack was unscathed!

It's all held on with wire tires - surprisingly stout and strong though!

Thanks, yeah I was wondering about that side panel and blinker.

I may try it, but I sure like the look of that FMF pipe.

Especially when you take a rock through it.............................It will drain all by itself.

ok, so i've looked through the threads and cant find an answer too two questions i have over my dakar.

1) what fork oil are you reccomending.. 5, 7.5 or 10??

2) my bikes a 04 and i leve in an area of high humidity, from time to time it stalls... i could even be at the lights or just gearing down, if i hold the clutch in i can feel it cut. i've checked the fuel pump/filter, the connections, it has had the vslves done. i run good fuel, i take it on long rides, ride it at high rpm at times to clear and carbon build up:(

ny help on either would be appreciated!
