Pivot pegz

You might want to look at my post on page 88 about PivotPegz. Since that post I have lowered and moved them back as far as possible and installed a wonderlich adjustable shifter which make it work much better.

There isn't enough space on the ADV server to store all the posted pics so you have to link them from another site. I use photobucket.com. It gives you the image's URL next to the picture after you upload it. It's a little convoluted but not really a big deal.

Looking good! KDennan, w/a heat shield you can shorten up those racks (bring them in)if you want. I'm running mine w/1 each of water and fuel rotopax (when needed) and also, if you can find them , there are pelican style cases that fill the entire size of the bag for hard/carry storage if needed. Congrats!

Did some work on the bike today:

- installed the new Scorpion battery and redid the wiring to give me more space. Starts up in 0.5 seconds now. Glad to be rid of the OEM one, finally!

- Refit the beak.

- pulled the passenger pegs off, that saves 0.5kg!

- Played around with the Enduro Star Trail Stand. It works, but it wasn't SUPER stable. I need to play with it some more.

- Installed Wolfman luggage racks, and the Rocky Mountain soft bags. These bags were only released by Wolfman last month, so no reviews online. Basically, they are bigger than the Expedition Dry ones. These are most similar to the Adv Spec Magadans. More abrasion resistance, and more capacity than the expedition ones, plus an inner dry bag, so its easier to unpack at night.

- Still need to put the offroad tires on, the wider pegs, and a few other things.

Pics for proof!

Note the panniers are pretty wide, but they can be cinched down so the bike won't be wider than the bars.





And for Swamp, sorry this took me so long. I'd been away for work. Here are the pictures of the iphone mount, with drilled hole. Its pretty rudimentary, but works for me:

Question, when installing your progressive forks did you change your fork oil to a heavier one? Did you remove your oil from the forks at all? Or was it easy enough to just remove the springs and replace w/ pvc spacers. Just curious.

Thanks.

Oh, and has anyone found a better tail light assembly? mine flexes all the time (and flexed off today!). Its about as strong as the beak.

Let me know if there's an aftermarket one thats just better?

Also, do the Huskys NOT have this issue?
