Something to note. On my Husky there is (well, was, a common mod is to dremel it flat) a ridge on the back of the shock protector and over time it rubs a groove in the swing arm. Not sure if that would be an issue here but I did want to mention it.

Thanks
I've got the Adventure Spec crash bars and Altrider plate on mine, I had to cut a little off the skid plate on the left hand side.

Thanks for the heads up Dub! good idea, the rack sofar has seemed pretty sturdy with those straps. i've only been putting my Lunchcan on it though to go to work. The bags seem great sofar, i just brought home a 4liter jug of milk and a few other odds and ends in one bag and it worked great!

Pivot Pegs come

Once you compare them all and the prices i think Pivot Pegs come out on top.

I installed my Rox risers tonight as well. They work well. Definitely better for standing up which was my only problem. The bars were too far pulled back and too low, so I rotated them forward a bit which makes a huge difference standing up. It will take some getting used to for sitting down since I liked the bars before but I like the new position as well. Overall I'm very happy. Easy install.

Good eye TigerMarker! the first guy to notice/mention my grab handles, Thats actually digital camo ducktape, I have been doing a great job of scratching the shit outta those silver handles and i was expirimenting with tape, i want to try and get them wraped in that style maybe with the stuff they wrap cars with, i dunno if it would work on handles like that but i have'nt really looked into it yet.
Either that or just powdercoat them and the kickstand black but i do like them "camo'ed" you must be tall to have your rox risers forward like that i pulled mine back just to make it comfortable to sit on the bike for 8 to 10 hours a day, getting ready for my month off starting right away.

Yessss, knew it! They look cool like that.

Ha I'm only 5'10". I guess sportbikes have made me used to leaning forward and I love to carve the twisties. Like I said it was the standing up that made the risers necessary for me. Sitting down I was perfectly comfortable.

No problem, here's what I did before I got a real rack... Hopefully it helps

Looks good Dubl-A, I dont plan to put alot of weight on the rear rack, just my small tent and bed mat. I'll get a picture of my final setup for my trip at the end of the week, I manage to keep my stash tube on the bike but i ended up mounting it hanging from the bottom of the left side wolfman rack. I'll get a pic of that today.

'S funny I have a pair of Pivot Pegz fitted to my XC and I really like them.

Different strokes for different folks, eh?

I don't get Pivot Pegz. The majority (myself included) seem to get along just fine letting our boots rock back and forth over the stationary foot peg. Why introduce added complexity to something as simple as a foot peg?
