Continental Road Attack 2 110/80/19

Does any body have experience mounting the Continental Road Attack 110/80/19 on their Roadie? I am looking to go on a 10 day tour with a bunch of guys where the main destination is twisty paved roads through Washington, Oregon and Northern California. Last year I used the Conti Road Attack's on my Varadero with great success, but the 110 is the stock size for the 'Dero. 100/90/19 being stock for the Roadie I would like to know if the 110/80/19 presents any problems ride wise, mounting and clearance wise I think it is fine. I think the Conti RA is probably the stickiest option out there provided it doesn't make the bike wobble or unstable at speed. Thanks for any info you may have.

The SW pegs are 15mm lower than stock and the Pivot Pegz are only 10mm lower than stock, but their site claims that the pivoting action will more than compensate for the difference. Pricing is close enough between either pair that it's not the deciding factor. Will the 5mm difference be noticeable? Is there a big enough difference between them in quality?

I have the SW pegs and love them. Took care of my long legs just fine without causing the bottom of the pegs to scrape.

Yeah, I was thinking about getting one. Do you have any recommendations for an economical yet effective home model?

How do you think they would do in a tip-over. Do they look robust, or have you heard of any reports of this?

Also do you have link / details on the deal?

Operation real header is donnnne! It is certainly a one off but it fits well and sounds great. Crash bars fit but the skidplate will need to be reworked.

Just search this thread for "PLR6401" and you will get a hit.

found it! but I cant determine if they ship to Canada, it appears their shipping calculator does not, but no link (that i can see) to contact this retailer? Anyone know?


Also...

found this much more expensive set on ebay

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Givi-PLR6401-...ht_3292wt_1165

and if I understand correctly.... from what this seller says you need a top mount kit or an adaptor? What does he mean by that?

"CAN ONLY BE MOUNTED WITH THE GIVI TOP MOUNT KIT BEING INSTALLED OR ELSE YOU NEED TO BUY A SMALL ADAPTER MOUNTING KIT CALLED PLR450K WHICH IS ABOUT $85 EXTRA"

==============================================

finally would these be a good choice for mounting Wolfman Expedition Bags? I am not familiar with these bags and I am wonder if there is anychance of the back of the bag contacting the Muffler? Does it have a good rigid back? The Wolfman webapge says the 'hoop height' of the rack should not exceed 9.5"

Yes they are robust.
i was thinking i might strap stuff to the bars like maybe the wolfman expidition dry saddle bags or a some extra gas or a tool tube .Hard bags I think not
The tip over protection ? Yeah i think that along with some front bars you'd be protected pretty good on slow speed tipovers.

What has been replaced? The header from the exhaust ports down to the straight piece?

This is the bike you put a camshaft from a 675 in right?

^correct it's all street triple from the head to the straight section. It uses the tiger upward bend and rear mount.

Yes this is the cammed bike.

How important is it to change a map or tune to match all these modifications?

Also have you dyno'ed it before and after the header?
