Back together

Beautified the crash bars and racks, smoothed them and sprayed with bedliner.

Not criticizing the way you mounted your lights (under) as they look supported/stable either way; but anything in the directions give a reason why they show lights should be mounted on top vs bottom?

Looking at the two boxes at the lower-left corner of the bottom diagram, it seems that the lights should be on the top not the bottom.

Installed a new Seat Concepts 2-up Touring Low seat. Gripper top, carbon sides, and orange stitching.







I was worried that the 'low' would be so dished that it would lock me into one position, without the ability to slide around, or that the 'touring' would be so wide it would be uncomfortable standing. I'm happy to report that neither are issues. It is a bit more dished, but I can slide forward enough to have two completely different seating positions, and, it's not noticeably wider than the stocker, just much more shaped.

Very Disapointed

Put the Upper crash bars and headlight guard from Touratech on today. Just like the Bash plate the fit and design are very bad.
The Headlight protector Plexi-glass is bigger than the mounting bracket and the Holes do not line up. The hardware was wrong and missing the upper middle pieces. I got it on but the fit will cause it to become loose very quick with the vibration and because of the fit it will pop off the first time it gets hit.
[IMG][/IMG]
The Upper crash bars had to be drilled out on the left side and the Bar protectors that came with them are very cheap and look like an after thought. I had to stand on and bend the left side to get it to fit. The bar protectors will get replaced as soon as I find a Black or Orange plastic piece to fit the bars. Also the Hardware is EXTREMELY cheap. these must be grade 1 steel. The heads do not accept a standard size or metric Allen / hex wrench, it is close but as soon as you put a little elbow grease into it, they strip the heads. This happens with both size's the head accepts.
The Hardware is placed so that the pointed end is facing critical components of the bike. I will be replacing the Hardware as soon as possible with Higher grade steel and carriage bolts or I will put Hex or Filster heads facing the Gas tank or Crank case. This is some really bad engineering for Germans!! Sad Sad Sad!

Some one wanted to see the KTM plate I put on the bike. Good quality piece. Everything fit and high quality.
