Quick release fender packs, Do-It-Yourself tutorial.


ARin

I wanted to be able to remove my fender packs when i don't need them...but i also like the security of the bolt-on design, rather than the strap on type of packs.

Here is my solution.

Chuck the pins in the worlds smallest vise and use a cutting wheel, or hacksaw to cut them just above the first hitch pin hole. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE WEAR SAFETY GLASSES!!! Cutting wheels have a tendency to fly apart whenever they want to...and riding is tough with one eye.

Then chamfer and smooth the rough ends with the worlds smallest bench grinder. *I have a pretty small garage, so you will notice many of my tools are also of Lilliputian dimensions

Now, you have used the bolt holes in your fender pack as a template to drill the appropriate holes in your fender. Here we see the trimmed Clevis pins with washers inserted into the underside of the fender holes, and epoxied in place.

Here we see the finished product from the top of the fender. This is the way it will look when you don't want to lug around your packs.

Now, you can use the hitch pins to secure your fender bag in a snap...and still take it off easily!!

Here is my headlight shroud getting the same treatment.

And the finished product, the way it looks when you don't want to take your packs.

      I searched and couldn't find a similar thread. Modding season is upon us.I cleaned and oiled my air filter, changed my 13 tooth cs to a 14, cleaned and lubed the chain, changed the oil and filter, and installed my Battery Tender. It was a good day. Tomorrow, I ride.

      Alright, so up behind my house I got a mountain full of trails to explore, but my dad won't let me go at it unless I have some sort of device that tracks my location and has the capability to send an emergency message in case I get hurt. 
       
      I was wondering if there were any good GPS tracking devices that would have those functions? 
       
      Thanks!

      Hey Thumpers,
      I have a 2008/2009 TTR 125 that won't start. It was a family bike purchased brand new from Yamaha dealer that has been cold blooded since day 1. This bike has been used and abused. I hate to admit it but for a lot of this bike's life, it was only being started using starting fluid spray. At this point it has been sitting in the garage not being used and it is very very rare that someone is able to get it started. It feels like it has no compression whatsoever when kicked. I have cleaned the carb but it didn't seem to make much of a difference. Is there a way to test the compression and find out what is going on?
       
      Thanks, 
      Chip
