Nice work on those rally brackets Paul! Very slick. Are you really using 12mm bolts though? Are you drilling out and re-tapping the upper trippleclamps?

The topclamps Paul delivers with the risers that accommodate the Scotts steering damp have always used 12mm bolts through the pair of holes closest to the rider, so I expect the same topclamps are used here.

I don't need a rally roadbook mount, but the cleanness of this setp up to mount a fairing, lights, horn, and generally clean up the wiring rat's nest makes it look like a winner to me.

Misead your question I think. The bolts that pass through to the triple clamp are the stock size (10mm?), only unique point is that all four holes are used, instead of just two, which means that the bolts closer to the rider are too big to pass through the standard (8mm?) holes in the topclamp. The 12mm reference looks like a typo.

What Mifune said, they are the stock M10 size bolts, more than strong enough already.

Yes sorry.. 10mm typo on my part.

Steveo: the thicker one is stock.. it has much more substantial plastic in that location.

Got the bike back together and went for a ride

Here's what the rally frame looks like with two squadrons in it (and my horn mounted up nicely to the existing hole ) :

I have the xcw so have 13/50 gearing. I want to get a set of 17"s. What size rear sprocket do I need to be able to keep the stock chain. I want to get the tallest gearing I can out of it without changing chain.

14/48 can still use the original chain.

The exc comes with 15/45 which is way tall... and everbody immediatley swaps them to 14 x 48 so you should be able to make a good deal... want mine?

How much? Does the exc have a 118 chain stock? Also, is the cover on the coutershaft same on both bikes. I don't need a different one to put a 15 on do I? Do you think 15/45 won't be as tall with 17s?
