On Two Wheels / Re: Novel Birthday Present

What a great present! I love getting home made gifts like that, especially from the kids. He did a great job on it, you'll enjoy that for years to come.

Personally I wouldn't pay money to recalibrate the speedo, I'm way too cheap, just work it out in your head as you go. On my older bikes I have to convert between mph and kph as I ride.

Maintenance and Servicing / Re: Givi engine bars
« on: January 06, 2019, 04:38:20 PM »
I adjusted my valve clearances this past summer and removed the plastics all without removing the Givi bars. A bit tight at times which necessitated a bit more work than it would be if they weren't there but still doable.

Its illegal here where I live and I doubt I'd do it anyway if it was legal. Maybe at an occasional stop light but not when traffic is moving. Drivers here are bad, distracted and never use turn signals, it would be scary. For some reason they don't like being passed either, they take offence to it. To be honest, with my riding (commuting and weekend riding) there is rarely any need to anyway.

I have the SW Motech skid plate and also put on a radiator guard to help prevent any stones from putting a hole in the rad. I don't have a hugger but it could help keep some dirt off the rear shock.

I'm not really sure I would call what I do welding, I call it sticking metal together  :008: I wouldn't attempt anything structural yet, need to improve a lot, but its nice to be able to make up small simple projects like this though. Saves a bit of money and its nice to build things.

Personally, I prefer the look of the Evo tech....but I bought a used Beowulf (like the one above) 'cos it was going cheap.

ThirtyOne, no sorry. Very unusual for me not to take pictures during the process but just have the mounted picture and this one after it was painted. Not much to it really, just some expanded metal mesh, metal strips for the edge and then three tabs welded on. Its been on since 2015 with no issues and has saved the rad a few times (I could hear a few rocks hitting it).

I'm cheap as well so just made my own. Also, I knew what it would be made of and could make it fit like I wanted.
