I got the TT one, but it hasn't (and probably won't ever) as it was intended for. But it looks strong and was easy to install.

After 2 months the bike is almost done. Yesterday the Holan Nomada Pros were installed. Now all I am waiting for is some small protection parts.

More here.

I really like that Touratech pack of chewing gum holder, how many testicles did that set you back?
Looks like it doubles as a fanny-pack.....sweet!!!!

The straps are too short to use as a fanny pack, although I suppose you could strap them to a belt or something. The shape is wrong, too. I use it to keep tire repair stuff on the bike at all times.

If nothing else my peeps at Starbucks will like the logo.

If anyone is looking for the OEM crash bars Gateway BMW in St. Louis has a bunch of them. They've got all the other brands too.

Anyone running without the rear seat and riser in the back found a good way to cover the hole under the pillion? BMW has a part listed but its not available yet. I emailed three other accessory manufacturers and they have nothing.

Kurt at Black Dog Cycle Works is working on a rack that covers that space, it is 14" x 21" with a taper to the back and holes for rotopax mounts and warn winch mounts with strap holes down each side.

spaces on Wunderlich bar risers???

ok..so I just got the 35mm up and back risers for the LC today and have installed them...problem is they leave a space!!!

here is what I mean if I tighten the top bolt flush you can see the almost 1/4" space on the bottom....



If I try and even them out there is still a small gap top and bottom but they are flush against the bar...








Here is the pic from their site....



Has anyone else installed them and have this gap? Am I just being over concerned about nothing?
Advice or recommends anyone??

Another day, another farkle. Long legged FFs may like these... except for the price tag.

So what am I talking about? The BMW Enduro footpegs. Expensive. I got them because of the nice dealer discount... probably due to paying full ticket for the rest of the bike.



First think I did was adjust the pegs to put them in the low position. I measured from the footpeg to my lift on the stock pegs before removing and measured again after installing the new pegs... 1 full inch lower. My knees say thank you.

Note: I ordered the pegs by part number and did NOT order the springs that go with them assuming that they use the same spring as the stock pegs. Nope. I've got them mounted sans spring right now. I'll order the correct springs tomorrow.

Install details: http://www.snafu.org/pics/r1200gsw/2013/0802-footpegs/

If they are designed like every other riser I've used the space is NOT a problem. The specs usually call for torquing the front first, then the rear to whatever the appropriate torque is. That puts a gap at the rear. A gap is necessary to make sure the risers work correctly with bars at both ends of the allowable tolerance range for bar diameter.

I like those risers and may buy some myself. Thanks for the pics.

I fiitted these risers yesterday and have the same gap. I called a mate who also has them, and he has the gap as well. I'm looking forward to tying them out today.

That looks pretty nice. Does that require any other SW Motech pieces?
