Took a few pics of the space between the muffler and saddle bag.@b_rock - there is a spacer inserted to adjust the tail pipe inward about 10mm creating a bit of space. Thus far I haven’t run into issues with heat, but I do pay attention as it does ride close.
I’m using the symmetrical racks, which in hindsight I probably should have gone with the asymmetrical model.
Thanks Guy - I have a build thread on my bike, Urban Motard Build. Kriega bags (20L on left side and 30 L on right) mounted to the SW Motech SLC side carrier plates, Joe Rocket 50 L waterproof bag topped with a Kriega 10 L, and BMW tank bag.Really like the color scheme and setup. Any chance you could provide a list of luggage?
I have the extra height Ohlins shock installed (and high Andreani fork inserts) so that gives me some extra clearance. There's about 1 inch between tip of exhaust and corner of bag. The only precaution is that I strap the top rear corners of the left side and right side bags together, with a strap that goes across the top of the seat. This prevents the bags from sagging down while riding. The Kriega bags have a loop that allows for this - it's actually meant to be used when stacking their bags on top of one another.
Raised the rear with a R1200GS Shock and the front with fork extenders. This will hold me over until I’m ready for a full Wilbers kit
Mirrors are small convex units from the auto parts store. Made a simple mount to the bark busters. Inspired by Highway Dirtbike hand guardsLovely looking bike.
May I ask how effective are the smaller mirrors? The bike looks very good without the OEM ones. What brand are they, and are they bolted onto the Barkbuster bar?
