Hey guy,

Looking at adding some soft panniers without using rear racks.
Waiting on delivery of the bike so unable to get any measurements. (2021 model)

Does anyone have the distance from the bottom of the rear seat to the top of exhaust at the highest point.

Also if anyone else has added some soft panniers without using racks some recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help  :763:

I am defintely getting the hydraulic adjuster... what a pain fiddling with the spanner
tool on the oem shock; I do not want that hassel on any shock ever again!  I want to have easy adjustment!!  :002:

I am planning on acquiring camping gear for summer '22.. it's the only really affordable way for me to try to cover eastern Canada; the Atlantic provinces and part of Quebec.

I will have to rewatch your vids showing the gear you use. I remember the Coyote bag, and I looked at it, but rather pricey here in Canada ($600-ish plus 15%tax).

Picked up 2 different tail bags by SwMotek, one of which is somewhat similar in design to the Coyote. These will get me thru this summer for sure, and I will have to re-examine the situation before next summer!

Again, thank you for the info and advice! In the absence of personal knowledge, I am completely dependant on folks like yourself to keep pointed in the right direction!

Hey Motorboy. I've got a Corbin on my 2013, and it's very comfortable. Best, great - can't speak to that, I just like mine.
I've had Sergeants on other bikes, really liked them as well. This Corbin is as or more as a point of comparison.

Good luck
Have you seen the prices of Corbin lately-my butt ain't worth that much :114:

I did the same thing, but added an aluminum U-shaped fuse box guard, covered in black heat-shrink tubing and held with four table ties, to keep heavy tools from shifting forward and pressing down onto the fuse boxes. Several meters of duct tape is stored under the seat, where it takes no space. I put a stiff plastic shelf with two Velcro tie-downs on top of the 2019 battery, held down by the rubber strap, and another small tool case is held securely there.

Thank you once again for your advice! Truly!

And it's potato chips (crisps), wine, pizza, fries, chinese food, and...  :001:

All the wonderful carbs that are the bane of my existence!  :008:

You've convinced me, the 110 it is (level 1)!!

I am assuming I can purchase a 120 from Rally Raid or other suspension shop if/when the time comes and have it installed??

Hee hee - the lockdown diet of champions!

Yes, if you did ever want a different spring rate (and honestly, I really don't think you will) you can simply buy one from Rally-Raid (they are specific to the TracTive CB500X shocks made for Rally-Raid), and get it installed by any workshop with a motorcycle spring compressor - if you don't have the facility locally there is an authorised service centre in the US (Konflict Motorsports) for TracTive shocks, and there could well be one in Canada too.

However, I'm confident once you've got your fork and shock set up the way you like it, it's very good and compensating for quite substantially different loads - particularly if you do go for the remote hydraulic preload adjuster as you've been considering.

Let me know if you have any other questions - these are great bikes!

That's a very impressive tool kit! Even more impressive that you can get it all under the seat. Cool!  :152:

And the most used tools are:
 - the pump (every time after offroad)
 - small allen key
:)))

Modifications, Accessories, and Appearance / Painted Red Tubes?
« Last post by Ruggybuggy on Yesterday at 08:42:40 PM »
Has anyone painted the tubes red by the seat.  The 2021 has them red and my 2020 doesn't?  Is there a wrap kit or something available?
