Handle bar weight

For those who have raced on bikes less than 450cc's (enduro or rally), would a 2 lbs roadbook bracket/holder, plus an ICO, plus a GPS be too much weight to put on a 2014 350 xcw handle bar? I know it would be better to mount them on the frame, but I prefer the ability to mount and dismount them with ease as I'll be using this bike primarily for hare scrambles and wouldn't need any of this.



Thank in advance

you'll be fine with the bar mount.

We use those clamps all the time. They work just fine.

To be honest there's no difference in time terms to remove the bar mounted set up than a frame mounted set up assuming the frame mounted one is a bolt-on. All you need to do is disconnect the connectors for the roadbook and tripmeter (and maybe light) then just put the standard mask back on.

I dont think it matters on bike weight. I rand that setup on a 690 and noticed no difference

Toro, both types bolt on. What I meant was there is no real time difference in putting your bike back to a trail/enduro bike whether they are Daves design of clamps or on ours

Been working on a few more parts and concepts with getting some riding and possibly squeezing a few of the many rallies popping up in mind.

Started with new switches, roadbook is push button instead of toggle, with a redundant switch wired in parallel on the lever. All components are modular, such that if one fails another prewired part can quickly be put in place.





This became possible with Dimitri's schematic using small relays that will live in the RB holder itself.



I'll be running 2 iPhones each with their own bar switch, both running the Rally Blitz app, that works great BTW, and if you haven't tried it yet I would strongly suggest it.



One in my speedo position that will stay as my speedo and one above the RB holder when I get a new bracket and a few more cases made.



With all this in mind I have a bit of wiring left to do, the tower and switches I want to make such that it all removes within minutes and replaced with the stock mask, or frame mounted version or frame mounted lights or ?

Can you press "Up" on the handlebar switch while simultaneously pressing "down" on the lever switch, or do you have to beware of that happening? it should be possible to wire a few diodes and prevent a short but it adds complexity

Yes that's the beauty of it.

This is the same diagram as the one Dimitri sent me, with the switches wired up in parallel with the switch inputs any combination of buttons can be safely pressed at the same time and either set used at any given time.

Awesome job, Paul. Similar to where we're trying to get with the easy on/easy off. Single power from battery to front with a connector near the bars. Same re light, one connector only then its just a matter of unplugging the connector for the power and same re the light. Then just two bolts to remove to take off the tree and fairing. Should be on or off in less than a minute.

I must say though I fancy one of your top clamps with the switches, and I run flexx bars too
