Mine is unswitched; I just have to remember to unplug it if left overnight, but even then, the led backlights take barely any juice.

Remember that it has to be wired to the DC side.

Ok, thanks for the info. I'll start looking at the bikes wire diagram. I would like to have it switched since I know I'll forget to unplug even if I had a neon sign plugged in reminding me!

@theantipaul regarding the frame bracket which you machined from billet for the navigation tower. Am i able to but one exactly like and/or would you be able to custom build one to my specific needs and measurements?

If so what would a rough price be?

Cheers

Paul- Interested in seeing what you come up with for a frame mounted version.

btw- I bought handguards, mirror, switches and bar clamp from you last year for my Husaberg entry in the Baja 500. For those you you that have not seen Paul's stuff you are missing out. It is well designed and built!

Road Book Prep

I got my brackets in the mail today from RMS. Here are a few photos of the moc up. I just wanted to slap it on and have a look at it.


Side View


Front


I was wondering if the cables look ok or will I have to pull them down and zip tie them off so they dont flex into the back of the F2R. I still ned to figure out where I'm going to mount the IOC as I'm not sure if the road book bracket will show up in time. I was thinking of using heavy duty velcro and just stick it on the top of the F2R for a quick mounting option.

And with the F2R stuck on the cross bar.



If anyone sees something I'm missing our should make sure of please give me a shout out.

The ICO or odometer really should be above the left side of the roadbook. Just above the mile/kilometer note on the roadbook. Velcro won't work to stick the ICO to the top of the roadbook, but here are some instructions on a cheap method that has worked on thousands of miles of rally routes for us:

A new F2R roadbook option, designed more for racing, is coming soon. The older version will still be available. I'll post in Vendors. We almost always have lots of navigation stuff in stock.

fun fun
Charlie

Looking good.
On the break cable routing. We cut off the outer sleeve and use these pipe clamps to secure to the triple.

That's more wrenching than my weak ass tool box can handle. Do you think I will have a problem with the cables where they are run now? It's the Evia rally in Greece and it looked to be a lot of dirt track trail.

Is there no way of routing them in front of the X2 headlight?

When your front forks are compressed, your brake line, in the normal routing, will come up and possibly get caught on your navigation equipment, causing all kinds of interesting troubles. Take a good look at it. If there is any chance of the brake line getting caught, an easy short-term solution is to take some beefy zip-ties and cinch the brake line to the bottom triple clamp (with the forks fully extended, wheel off the ground). Often the hard outer coating on the brake line down there is flexible enough to let the brake line bow out below the triple. But this is not an ideal solution. The best way is to strip the hard coating and to run the brake line down the right fork, across the bottom triple, and then to the wheel, like Chris said. This way it will bow out and hopefully not get caught up in the wheel. Use the p-clamps like in Chris's photo.

Good deal

Ill head down to the hardware store and see if I can find some clamps. I'll have a better look at it in the morning. Thanks for all the input.

Charlie,
Do you know if the new F2r roadbook will fit the existing Crux Studio bracket you sell ?
Thank you.
Edit: never mind, I saw on your website it does.

F2r pwr up

Just checking to make sure the F2R works. I'm still on the hunt for some pipe clamps to route the brake cables over the triple.
