Added the Altrider skid plate, washed it, then added some stickers. Added the Barkbuster handguards the other day, too.

I just put the Techspec tank protectors on this week and did not like the fit. The modification in this thread are much better. I started to make a pattern to cut them but then decided to try it the way they were made. May go have to go back and try it but will probably have to use another adhesive to get them to stick again. Thanks george-deo-feibr for your post on this.

You welcome. I didn't like it as well because they produce it for gray Africa without color modification with lines. I just cut it and than grind side with sanding disc and grinder. Now it looks pretty as from production.

Nice! I'm really liking mine. Well built and good looking. Wish I had read ALL of the install instruc's before I started. Had to backtrack a couple of times. C'est la vie, all's well that ends well.

I had the lowers installed before the uppers that came in a few weeks later, so I had to backtrack as well. I wasn't happy that you had to remove the exhaust to install the brackets, I ended up replacing the exhaust/header seals for piece of mind. Very well built though! Still waiting on the connecting bars.

Tusk High Fender

I installed the Tusk high fender. It was a really easy install. I tore up the stock fender in some really deep soft gravel. The front wheel sunk and the rear part of the fender was pulled apart and I couldn't get it to stay together, so I upgraded.

Cool Delkevic Exhaust

Added a Delkevic polished stainless exhaust. Very high quality and nicely turned out kit. Install was easy and the sound is nice with the baffle in. With the baffle out, it really barks and is a bit loud for my taste. Lighter than stock by a couple of pounds.





Cost was $219.95 delivered.
