Hi Poely.

Can we get a photo from the rear to show how wide the panniers are compered to the handle bars?

Hope to get my red DCT early next month and I'm getting the Zega Mundo panniers (31 & 38ltr) and the Zega Pro top box (38ltr).

Cheers

Mike

@ Mike Dew

Front:
-Handguards are 94,5 cm wide.

Back:
-Overall width is 101,5 cm.
Right side: 31ltr extends 52,5cm from center.
-Left side: 38ltr extends 49cm from center.

( it's worth to check out how far the 45ltr would extend from center before buying)

Grtz

Your bike must be like a unicorn for the TT shop. The so far terrible delivery dates they offer, you still managed to get all the gear from them. Well done.

I've only so far managed to pick up the top and bottom bars, big foot (which is terrible, keeps bending and I keep having to fix it) and a tank bag.

STILL waiting for the skid plate, which TT said to me today "sorry, still got to wait for those" basically don't have delivery date...

-My first parts were available 19 April.

-The panniers came in on 26 May.
TT seems to have started production again.
I've heard they moved into a new production site and had some delays.
Topcase not yet avaliable.

- I have the 'works' long distance footpegs.
Salesman said that these fixed ones were better than the pi ot ones. They can only move upwards and are still good.

- Forgot to mention I also got the side stand extender and rear brake fluid reservoir protector.
Apparently the TT salesman honors his title.

Question

Did you go heavier or lighter with the fork springs? If heavier, is the rebound adjustability suitable with the stock valving?

I replaced the springs with Touratech/Hyperpro progressive springs.

I noticed not much difference under normal riding circumstances.
I am sure it's a little bit better but don't expect a huge difference.
Still don't know for sure if it was worth the cost. Front maybe but at the back I think it's better to replace the whole suspension unit if you decide to put money on the table.

The bike seems to dive a little less under heavy breaking.
Did not load the bike heavy enough to comment on after spring.

Cool

Thanks Poely. Saw the AT for the first time this past Thursday. Very little front fork spring sag compared to the back spring. Certainly this means nothing with no miles on the odometer.

Going tomorrow for another look and an attempt to negotiate some acceptable numbers.

I went with pivot's. I feel they are more comfortable.
For for the extender - give your review once you've taken it for a few rides. Mine falls apart. Having to keep repairing and bending the top plate back down... Massive pain in the backside.

Me too and they work great offroad. Sounds like the salesman was keen to sell his brand of footpegs.
