Check Cycra Pro, triple clamp mount.
Well, I know those are tough but I dont especially like the shape of Cycra shields... too roundish IMHO, a bit out of this bike general outline shapes. I like Zeta sharp edges more.
I really like the look of the Touratech guards. They look standard on my Strada and except for the lack of metal reinforcement seem sturdy enough. My buddy has dropped his Strada numerous times off road and the Touratech guards have stood up to the abuse.
Lekolite needs to post up a pic of his fancy new electrics and GPS/Iphone Mount. He should also post a pic and link to his new mirror extenders. His Strada is looking pretty sweet these days!
Hey, Lekolite, are you talking about Next dropping his bike?
Next, I got the shirt and it is AWESOME! Thanks!
Yep, I wrecked (low speeds, probably 25 and under) the bike a few times those first few weeks in the gravel. The touratech guards did a good job of protecting things and held up very well. I actually think their "Rubbermaid" like design is intentional. I think maybe an aluminum frame would have bent up my bars by transferring more force. I am very happy with my Touratech handguards and kickstand foot--they make good stuff.
Glad you like the shirt Donkey! Hang in there. We will look forward to a weekend ride with you and the other "Bergers" when you get back!
As per Next's request, I popped out this AM to take a few pictures. My new add-ons are as follows.
1. Red anodized aluminum side view mirror risers/extenders
2. Flush mount Powerlet outlet on left plastic
3. iPhone RAM X-mount with direct wired charging cable
Diggin those risers...where did you score them from?
Ingenious place to put a power outlet!
It is the 46 series and was 36 inches long to get back to the battery.
Just installed red Barkbusters on my Terra... my second choice. Originally, I wanted white hand-guards with the black lips but Twisted Throttle had them on back order till August.
Surely you can still order the plastics and swap out when they come? Spare set or on sell then
I want to do pretty much the exact same you did here with the fat bars the hand guard, what exactly will I need to order to do it?
He's running Motosportz fat bar clamps for the tr650 and highway dirtbike hand guards. Protaper KX highbars. I know because I copied his setup too
Bolt pattern on the HWY dirtbike set up is SXdx, 84 x 38/40 mm bolt spacing
Here are the images of the install and the panel with the Powerlet. There is plenty of slack in the 36" line to get it there and the connector will allow you to completely remove the panel if need be. This is Powerlet PKT 046-36. I started the cable down the right side of the bike with all the other cables then looped it up over the fuel hose to keep it away from the throttle. Lots of room over there. Hope the images help.
I put on a Touratech adjustable shift lever. Not much to say, works as expected. They make two shift levers. A fixed one, like in this photo from Kenneth Webb:
And an adjustable one:
There's about $10 difference. I probably would have been fine with the fixed one.
I think the fixed length shifters are ok for 90% of riders. It's the people with particularly large or small feet who use the adjustment. My wife boots are so small they're almost child sizes, and she found her bike much easier to shift after we replaced the stock shifter with a Touratech adjustable shifter and shortened the length.
Does the fixed length touratech shifter extend outward from the bike a little further than stock? I have a little trouble getting my boot under the stock shifter sometimes and I think if it extended outward (toe piece just a little longer) it would help.
