why?
when I saw bars I mean the fork tubes.... sorry for the misconfusion

no pictures yet.... but the bike is stripped to the frame, engine and swingarm.....

removed the tank, forks, fork clamps, rear shock, air box, fuse box, mudgaurd, fender, front headlight including bracket..... its a clean slate!

started installing - hydro clutch, KTM brake resivour, single high front fender, pro-taper bars,

problem is...... I gotta loose cam chain.....

for sale currently is anything I take off I don't need

Fork tubes would be marginally better. IMO, frame mounted is superior because it points the way the bike is going. The bars and forks don't always do that. And they move around more. Frame mounted lighting is more stable.

If you're interested in saving every pound, have you seen these? Ceramic bearings from Worldwide Bearings.

http://www.worldwidebearings.com/ceramic.htm



They claim:

Quote:
the company claims 40% less friction, 60% less rotating weight, a 3-5 times increased life over steel, lower vibration, cooler running and more.
Quote:
Larry McBride's 1000hp Top Fuel motorcycle has over 25 Ceramic Hybrid Bearings in it for over 5 seasons with zero failures. If our Ceramics will hold up in Larry's Top Fuel bike they will hold up anywhere. We now offer Ceramic Hybrid kits for all popular street bikes as well as 2 and 4 Stroke Motocross bikes.
Interesting.

Ben,
seeing as you've put the bike through it's paces, like some other riders on the forum, I'd like to hear your take on what worked and what didn't from you RTW tour. Seems like your shedding a lot of gear.

What worked and what didn't............

Worked:
Throttle lock..... BUY ONE NOW if you don't have one!
Best rest shock brace.... no bendy!!
Scott's Damper!
Heated gear!!!
Woody's Front Rim - Didn't bend it once!
Zumo 550 (not really bike related)
Double take mirrors no vibration the entire trip.... just not very happy because they tended to melt the ram ball...

Pelicans.... OMG strong as hell!!!!! DURABLE!!!!! but....... they won't be taking any off road trips with me anymore.... they are HEAVY!!!!!!! so they've been taken off and put on the shelf including the holan rack.

as for the holan rack.... not ONE bend or break...... and I dropped the bikes quite a few times!!!

Headlight gaurd..... oh ya must have!!

Renazco seat.....






now what didn't work.....

man I packed WAY too much shit!!

the touratech tank...... love it..... but hate it......
range is great but fitting the damn thing..... sucks!! I gotta remove the tank the replace a 15amp fuse that powers my tank bag and SAE plug..... seriously....

oh ya! and then!? fitting the thing to the flimsy front side fairing piece sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! pain in the ass!

now..... i ditched the side pieces and am going without it!

ok next.... tank bag..... mine sucked!!! it was probably the dumbest thing i did..... left home without a good tank bag.... problem is the shape of the tank is odd so making it difficult to fit.

my denali LED's........... eh...... so so.... im just nighttime blind




I had so much stuff I did to the bike.... ya'll have any questions about a certain item I added?

by the way.... what do you people use for a "switching power" lead?

paint scheme I am going to use.... you like?

I have the same color F800 and I was also thinking about painting the frame like this, looks really cool.

I don't like the looks of the big tank, but like the wa it's done on this one.
