in the bottom of the article they posted those options. I ordered black carbon vinyl/black carbon/no welt. The welt is the red accent you saw. In my opinion that would wear quick and not practical on a dual purpose machine.

IACV is the new "SAE" correct description for what was called in the 80's (when I was somewhat involved in engine calibration) an "Idle Air bypass Valve". If you've ever owned an '80's era Ford Taurus V6, you learned to hate idle air bypass valves because they would get gummed up with crap from the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system, and the engine wouldn't idle for shit!

Yeah that makes sense. I am really curious as to how it turns out. I have known about their seats for some time as friends on KLR's have them. They swear by them for sure. Please give your impressions once you get it. I'll have enough play money next month and I'll be getting one.

Was there ever a USA source for the black plastic skid plate from AXP in the USA? That design seems to wrap under the engine better than some.

Awesome, thanks! Yes I was looking at style as well, here are quite a few knock offs. It might even fit in the normal horn location with some redneck work involved perhaps?

If you do, get some of the very compact solid state relays from "eastern beaver"...a canadian guy in Japan who has great electrical bits for bikes

Tinkering with it will get you there. I think one guy said he had a collection of the cheap wrenches that come with routers, lawnmowers, ect. that he bent and drilled holes in as a mounting bracket. I was able to use the original bracket upside down, and bend it a little for my install on the other bike. I think it's also possible to separate it, and use a hose if it's too tight. You be the "guinea pig", and show us how it's done. Just don't test it in the garage.

I believe I read in this thread the AXP skid plate would become available from Moose Racing sometime near March of this year.

Spoke to IMS at the beginning of the month .... they had first molds available at that time but hadn't done a test fits yet. "Happy Flow" thru the testing process would make them available to us towards the end of Feb or in March.

That said, I encourage you to call them and get an update for us all. Doesn't hurt to remind them that we're waiting, either.
