amazing to ride.

My plan when I get a new one.

Life without a 990 is no life at all!

Thanks Charlie!

rack

Ive heard of a dude using his hand router while making aluminuim decoration parts for his car stereo project.

I couldnt pass on trying this..

i had a 40*40 cm piece of 8 mil thick aluminum i found in a scrapheap a while ago and a cheap 50 bucks router.

I took a piece of wood and a ruler and marked out some cutouts to make it lighter, and to make holes for straps.

Then i took a jigsaw with a metal blade and did some rough cutting, after that i finished it out by cutting the last 4-5 mil with the router, it was easy but quite time consuming.. it off season here in the nort so its ok.

I had seen a design that i liked on a bike outside the local burger joint, so i used what i remebered of the shape for my homemade rack.

Going to have it powdercoated some time during the winter but i am starting to get in to a pannier project and want to paint everyting at the same time.

Sorry about no photos during the actual build....

Testrun/ drawing up holes on a testbit.




How it turned out





Ride safe / Thomas

Did a new auto tune with the Bazzaz after I pulled the baffle from my Remus Roxx 2 into 1 system. Really woke up the bike and the neighbors! I have stock gearing and it will pull the front wheel in 1st and 2nd. Before it would have a tough time in 1st. It even had a full tank of fuel. Have a 45 tooth rear may install it but really enjoying stock gearing with the added power for street use.

Mate it's a ventura rack, sticker on it said not to be used as a backrest but have added a bit of extra bracing to stiffen it up

Go SLOW! I cut aluminum on the wood miter saw all the time, as long as it's got plenty of teeth. The saw has high RPM (as does a router) but the pressure needs to be applied slow or it will grab. Also, it gets hot!
