I have never really used the stock grab bars. Currently, without the rear mud flap & single side out, you can easily grab hold of the subframe just behind the rear number plate. This works great for a pick-up point or for using the center stand.

I'll ditch the center stand soon once I get the bracket fabbed up for my PMB sidestand.

Here are the "racks" I use when I am packing for camping or riding 2-up... I had it set up like a big pig, huh!! Now I'm trying to strip it back to what it was intended to be.



Berg was kind enough to make me a set of one-off bars that reasonably follow the lines of the rear of the bike. They give the SF a little more strength, offer good pickup points, offer passenger grab handles, and are great at keeping my GL bag from pressing on the plastic.

I picked up a 2 into 2 OEM collector for cheap a while ago and am thinking of going to shorty 2 into 2's... if so, the bars wont really be necessary and I can just use a heat shield on the exhaust.

We'll see... a work in progress. To each their own, I say.

Nice

I just throw my giant loop on the back no racks no heat shields.. actually there may be some heat stuff inside the plastic i don't know if thats stock or if the previous owner put it there.

The red tabs are more than likely from the SW7 filter kit but I'll let him confirm. But yes with the sausage filter you can reach in and remove the filter without removing the tank. I have the same setup. Helps to have rubber gloves on to keep the oil off your hands but certainly enough room for it all to go in and out.

Speedy's correct.

HERE is a post I wrote about it a while back.


With the stock or Safari tank, you can change the pre-filter or main filter w/o removing the tank. Granted, this is with the Rottweiler sausage filter... not sure about the ADV "non-domed" filter.

I love the filter system. With Ken's tank that I'm running now, I can't change the pre-filter quite as easy, but not far off. His tank is so quick to get off... 1 bolt, 3 fuel QD, fuel pump wiring, & its off. The other advantages if this tank are well worth it for what it offers, IMO.

I've got the Motohooligan intake. The sock can easily be R&R'd. The filter can be removed w/o tank removal, but it's not easily accomplished. I've a similar tank configuration as you; but also, as you know, a frame-mounted vacuum fuel pump. For me it's three bolts, two QD fuel taps, and the low fuel sender. Probably five minutes max in either direction.

Cool thanks!

I have been emailing back and fourth with Chris @cpr/Rottweiler been really helpful.

I'll definitely be getting the sausage filter and the Jet kit. To many projects at this instant to drop $500 on all that right now though.

I believe the main difference is the the construction material of the baseplate.

This is a very dangerous question that takes us precipitously close to oil thread territory, but my take is...

Split duty: D606 Front/D908 Rear, although my next round will likely be a MotoZ or Mitas rear. I'm intrigued by reports out of the 690 community and others.

More on than off: D606 Front/Heidenau Scout (or something similar) Rear
