The Garage Pro Travel Trunk sold by J.C. Whitney comes with a steel mounting plate. This is a rugged travel trunk. It will take a lot of abuse, and last for years.

If you order before Tuesday, you can get a 10 percent discount, and receive the large travel trunk for $40.46, delivered. Many of us on ADVRider bought the large trunk for $48, delivered, and it was an exceptional deal at that price. This is an amazing deal; you can't go wrong.

Search ADVRider for reports on the J.C. Whitney Travel Trunk. Apparently you can also fit this travel trunk to Givi mounts. Some riders here bought three of the trunks, and mounted them as saddlebags as well.

Doh! "Strong metal mounting plate". I guess I was thinking about your other post about a plastic one will fail. Thanks Spud!

Larger fuel tank

Anybody get on the waiting list for this, I think from Acerbis? 3.? gallon, Not sure this would eliminate the original cap? Screw on would have to be tight to pressurize for FI. Available mid April? Just got over 1,000 miles on my CRF today, and more to come, weather in the 50's sure beats hacking around on the computer.

Just did the 13 tooth front sprocket, WOW! what a difference. Lots more "power" when I need it, no more dropping it a gear every time I need a burst of speed. Only problem now is I will probably be spinning the knobs right off the tires on the Iowa gravel roads.

the VFR 750 and two of my other Bikes .

Honda still use the same color coding on the wirering until today ,
so cutting the CRF Switch off and connect the wires to the switch i get
from the second hand Warehouse was easy .

Cut the wires , remove 15 mm insulation on each, twist same color together , solder it and insulate the connection with shrink tubing

The new (old) Switch don't have the emergency Button but came with
a very usefull high beam Dipswitch in front .

I don't use the switch in the Pic , i use the same model with out the Coke .
Its just a example how it look .

1)RubbersideUp, I was quoted 5917 OTD by the guy at the Orange dealership, and "around" 5600/5700 by Huntington beach Powersports Honda. I did NOT get a good vibe from talking to Berts at the Long Beach Motorcycle show, and honestly, I knew more about the bike than almost any dealership, but ESPECIALLY more than the guys at the "megamall" places. I personally wouldn't buy from them...and I didn't! lol
2)CRFSOCal, NOW I find out you might sell yours, after I drop a chunk of change on a G650GS? THANKS! lol j/k
3)BigAHelm90, if the cops are pricks where you live, why would you even consider getting a slip on? You have this urge to say "officers, here I am"? ;-)

Wow, you had me going for a minute there. I had to go look at my bike to see if I had missed the fact that there was an "emergency" switch. Nope, not here in US. Not sure how many specs there are, US, and "other". So, you've got, that we don't:

Emergency switch
No spark arestor
Lower wattage headlight (not any more)

Took a ride on another bike today and hit the horn every time I went to use the blinkers!
