Hey Gany,

We use cast polyurethane for guards etc at work (mining oem) quite a bit. It's extremely tough but not hugely stiff. The stiffness might me fine for this application, we use it in sheets of about 1m square.

The switch block looks great by the way, I might have to line some up with you for the beemer.

Cheers,
Michael

Does anyone know where to get the metal gears to upgrade the plastic gears in the TouraTech Roadbook Holder?

Hi Gany,

Nice switch,

There are some PU which may be suitable for this application but you should play with hardness to make sure the material withstands the hits. If you go plastic, take into account the flexibility of such materials, they can have a serious effect when in service/crashing etc...

High impact thermoplastics are good but the injection mold is not cheap ...

Keep up the good work,
D.

We ran dual ICO's like this for 7 years and around 170,000 rally km all up, only failure was the occasional cable snagged up near by the fender by bushes, but that's why we ran x 2 sensor units & cables

never a single magnet issue, a blob of silicone on the back circlip always kept them in place

After a few month of waiting yesterday I got my groundplate for Touratech roadbook, IMO and Garmin Quest III (but now Montana).
Special thanks to 640 Armageddon for his great job. 640 Armageddon made a great job with the CAD-programm. Without him I saw no chance to get such a strong groundplate.
Now my metal worker made me a good plate and I just checked if everthiny fits and hope getting to install it at the weekend on my BMW G450RR.

Let's show some fotossss...

Actually no. Not yet at least
A website will be online mid June? sth like that. In which we will have an announcement that will change the way people navigate with roadbooks .

Tower plates will be present to this website, and we will see if we can keep up by doing customised jobs such as Sven's with details from customers. It is a long shot, so we have to see how it goes...

Follow the vendors forum and I will update everything as soon as the news are online...

My metal-producer said that it was not as easy as we expected. He needed to modify the files in order read it in his machine. So it was a little bit more work for him. He uses a 3mm aluminum in very good quality. The problem is that my metal-producer has good and big machines to produce but 4mm or more is very rar to produce in his job.

I know that the welds are only on points but in the moment it seams so strong and if it is not working I know the address to tune it up. :)

Tonight I have just painted it with clear finish (paint) because the plate was glass bead blasting before. Now it has a nice look.

If somebody want to buy such a plate. No problem. Contact me. I can produce them. But it is not very cheap and trust me I do not want to earn money with it.

Most roadbook prints have the distance on the left and the notes/cap headings on the right. Is there a reason why this plate has the IMO on the right and the GPS on the left? Seems reversed from common placement.

Just curious...

Mak,

I'm looking for some replacement lights like those. Where did you get them? My sources are coming up dry.

Honestly, I'll probably just switch to LED, but these are the original ones.

Thanks,
Dave

Hey Dave,

You can get those Triom lights from any KTM dealer, as they were used on a couple of bikes including the first 660 Rallys.

Part number is 58414001000, list price is around $150 but you can find them for $118 here:

Cheers,
Lukas
