MachineArt Moto Fender Extender

If you install the MachineArt fender extender, take some vice grips and bend the claw to reduce the gap to the fender. I checked the extender tonight and it wasn't really snug even though the screws were tightened up. Once I took the clamps off and bent the claw portion some, the extender clamped solidly to the fender.

nwpa screwed with this post 07-19-2013 at 07:21 PM Reason: vice trips?

Great list. Second job is right.

I tried the small tank bag and found it to be useless. Now have the large bag and am much happier.

One note about the Schuberth SRC. The neck roll can be very tight I removed mine because of that and now have a Sena SMH10R. This provides a similar low profile on the outside of the helmet without the fit problems.

I'm at the moa rally and installed this yesterday with the t25 under the seat without needing to do this.

Thumb adjustable rox risers

Chris Olin pres of rox risers and I figured out how to install his prototype 2.25 inch adjustable risers on Friday here at the moa rally. He's going to get them into production and they should be available online in 4 weeks.

You will need to drop the right fork (nut is 44nm and use blue locktoite when you reinstall) and zip tie the cables to the right side of the body work after snipping the zip tie that holds the cables as they enter and run under the tank area. On the left you'll only Ned to loosen the clutch bracket and move it inboard about 1/8".

If you're here at the rally the risers are on the GS LC at the Adventure Designs booth.

Sounds good, maybe I have a thin front fender?

The extension would "hold", but I could slide it around some before I tightened up the bend on the claw. Maybe I had the oddball piece.

That depends on what you want to put in it. For me, its perfect as a day bag, or as an addition to some bigger luggage for a few days away.

Anyway, you've two fuses under the saddle. The red w/brown trace coming from the 7.5 amp fuse is easy to get at. That idea came from the instruction for the P3 lights from Skene design.
Is there a reason to NOT use the tail lamp wire - very easy access as well??
Is there an on line wiring diagram for the GSW ... I know BMW long ago stopped putting them in the rider manual - standard for most bikes for a long time.

It is reported to be more likely to throw a fault. if that is fact or fiction.

Nope. I asked my dealer sales critter if she could sweet talk the service department into printing off a copy of whatever they had.... the answer was they don't have anything. I'll ask for more info when I take my bike in for it's first service on Tuesday.

Is this for the pivoting riser? Is any of this required for the block riser already available on the Rox website or is that a simple install?

Let's see how much this improves the ride. It made a world of difference on my '05.

I talked to a very cooperative and friendly service tech as well as everyone else at my local dealer about a wiring diagram. The tech told me there is no central file or organized wiring diagram specific material availabe for them to look at. When they have wiring questions the information is all located with each job or component they are working on. He didn't seem to like the system either but that's all BMW has given them to work with.

*My* install was pretty simple for the block riser. Clipped the zip tie on the right but may drop and move when I have a spare moment.
