They are "OK". The rear was about 50% at 3000km. The front was OK on the street and pretty good in gravel but a bit loose in sand and scary on wet grass or mud.

I've put a tubeless TKC80 on the front for now until I can get my 606 in action.

The light is mounted to the fork tubes....so the bar is not an issue?

Givi Bars

Ya I have the Black Dog mount and Rigid myself - just saw it on their website. I checked again and it was specific to the Touratech it seems.

"NOTES: NOT compatible with the low fender riser, the Touratech Upper Crash Bars or a high fender kit."

Why don't you run your charging cord in the velcro slot at the front of your GL tankbag?

Do those crash bars of givi mount on 3 points on each side or on 4 as the OEM do ?

My concern with those is that if i want to add some day some Auxiliary lights like the image below, i will not be able as the crashbar will be in the middle.


Except of that they look better than the OEM. More detail images of the mountaing points would be helpful or some info how you see this product. If you see it as a solid construction. :)

The bars mount at 3 points plus the cross bar....The lights that you show are something I would never consider given their exposed position and the fact that they are not LED.

Build quality is solid....

Thank you for the reply.

Well those lights are just an example. You would consider something mounting on the crashbar you mean ?

Personally I don't see any reason not to use BDCW's mounts as they are remarkably well made, the light is protected from tip overs and I like the Aux light to turn with the bar for off road riding....just an opinion....

[QUOTE=Pestifero;24338651]This is my ktm with new solution for air

On the Stelvio



Love the paint Job, I don't get the vents? All that would do is hit the tank with air and add resistance?
Here is a shot of mine with the dogs this morning, walking up the drive and they were laying ther looking at me like they were going to get to run through the fields with me.
