Have a look at this, post 384 and follow SmugMug link to pictures. Lined the panniers hardly any reduction in size. Think they are better for it as well les chance of marking helmet etc.

You have a broken one you could send me? Ideally I'd need the piece(s) that broke off, ultimately ideally the bike for fitment, but we could get around that if necessary.

Cheers!

A Humble contribution to this thread. Led daytime light, just beneath the beak.



















Nothing to deal with those great works above, but I tried to do my best.

I made a tail pipe extension for my 1150GS with Jesse bags.

I know there are a lot of threads out there on this, but I decided to do it myself after being annoyed by this:



I got 1 3/4" ID exhaust pipe and used some throttle return springs and nuts that I had.

I removed the silencer end, using 8mm socket.



Then cut the pipe so it fits under my left turn light.



Dry fit



Measured the springs so I know where to weld the nuts to hold the springs.



Welded the nuts using a cheap harbor freight welder I've owned for several years. Does the job, but not weld (please don't judge my welds--I know they suck, but they hold).



Here it is fitted



With my pannier back on. Need to cut the end for fit.



Used an angle grinder to sharpen the edge, so in a pinch it can be used as a weapon





Went for a ride, doesn't rattle or leak. Hopefully it will keep all (if not most) of the hot exhaust gasses off my pannier.

Looks good! The only change I would make is possibly heavier springs not stretched so much. Otherwise very nice!

I'll have to look for some. They aren't good springs and will probably be unsprung by the heat.

But the Starbucks crowd (and it is a rather large crowd) is heaving their doughnuts in the parking lot.

Modified my Jessie mount and added stainless extensions to keep from cooking things in the left pannier.

Thinking about TIGing on some gun sights for kix.
