jay71: I already purchased some matt black etching primer and some semi-gloss black engine paint.. .that'll be the treatment the skid plate is getting and I figure it'll be easy to touch up when I scratch it
My heat shield is only on the right tank around the exhaust pipe where it passes by.

What size Rollie bag is that?

I had to remove my wolfman saddle bags, pelican case, CJ Designs rack, and then the gobi racks so that I could release the rear fairing



Old vs. New



I think the SGMoto windscreen and the rear tail section are going to compliment each other nicely



also matches nicely with the swingarm gaurds and clutch cover protection








...before getting to the drilling I got side tracked. Because of the Safari tanks I can't use my A990 bags at the moment. The A990 bags install in your front crash bars and are a really good place for carrying things like spare tubes, bigger tools, etc.

You can see the bag mounted in my crash bar in this pic:


With the Safari tanks, at least for the time being, I won't have my crash bars on (the bars would require modification to fit), so I'm losing that storage location.

Where to carry my spare tubes & such now?

I got a Wolfman bottle mounting kit (the u-shaped tie points) that I'm going to mount on the top of my pelican case...



Then.. I have one of the new Wolfman Rolie Bags that I'll strap on top of the pelican case using those tie downs.

Here is everything just sitting in place test fitting


This should be PERFECT for carrying spare tubes & the like. The Rolie bag system is stackable.. so depending on the trip I'm head out on I might actually pick up several of the Rolie bags in different sizes so that I can mix & match for my specific luggage needs.


....to be continued.

The pelican case is a 1450 - the Rolie bag is a small.

I have had my safari's on for nearly 3 years now and have ridden with them in really hot slow temperatures for long periods.

I have only a strip that is opposite the where the front header runs under the tanks. Mimicking the OEM tanks piece.

No problems so far.

So when I left off I was shopping for heat shield.

Turns out the local autoparts store had some self-adhesive stuff in stock.
A 2 foot x 1 foot sheet was under $20



..did some cleaning on the back sides of the carbon with rubbing alcohol...



...some cutting with the scissors and I pealed & stuck...



et Voila.

My new panel is on the left.. stock panel on the right. Should be good

Then.. on to the left side.

The left side is a little more challenging because you have to figure out what to do with the key-unlock mechanism for the seat.

The stock fairing has the mechanism mounted on the fairing. The new fairing doesn't have the same bosses so the obvious solution is to move the mount from the fairing to the subfairing.

...as you pull the fairing away you can see how the cable is connected



..two screws release it and now you have the unit hanging from the cable



some Husqvarna bolts ( ) and some spacers and I mounted it to the under side.



Here you can see the bosses on the stock lower fairing around the hole. None of the holes are cut out in the carbon fairing.



..a few minutes with a dremel and Voila!



Note: this type of dust is very very toxic. Wear a mask and put a fan blowing the dust away from you. It was a windy day here so I just used a long extension cord and went and did the dremeling (is that a word?) outside.



Rubbed this side down with rubbing alcohol...



... and got the scissors out again and made my heat shield for this side.
Stock fairing left, carbon fairing right.




and complete. Left side mounted

...now I have to finish the skidplate and the glovebox.

I'm not sure how well this will turn out but we'll see.

For my black dog skid plate I picked up some matt black etching primer and some satin black engine paint.





then I have to bolt the luggage & such back on to get ready for the coming riding season

at some point the stock exhaust pipes will begin to stick out like a sore thumb, and CF-wrapped pipes will be added... then it'll be closer to being done.

The stock exhausts aren't stock; they've been de-cat'd.
Bike runs great, is nice and quiet, and they don't get hot.

They just look stock

In Denver there is a "stock exhaust law". I look like I fit in

Here in Colorado loud pipes cost us public land access.

all that said.. if I can find some quiet carbon cans I'll buy 'em

I came up with the same idea last week too. (great minds think alike)

I'm just fitting the Safari at the moment. 99% of the time I will only ever have to fill the right tank so all the fuel will get prefiltered before the pump and in theory my pump filters should last twice as long.
