I just put some mondo zip ties through the mounting holes, then around the handlebar clamps. works fine.

n16ht5 I really like the look of your bike. That bag on the handlebars is a great idea. Where did you find it? I would like to get myself one. Good list of supplies as well. I see you live in Washington. I just moved to SC from the Bremerton area last year. Where do you ride at? Ever gone riding a The Tahuya trails in the silverdale area?

Yea I was up there in September. My Brother goes to Central Washington University in Ellensburg. Ive never ridden my Dirtbike over there but it always looked like a cool place to go. My girlfriend is talking about find a job up there when she graduates in December so I may be headed back out that way in the future.

Never thought about putting a tool bag in the airbox. I may have to give that one a try. I don't have anything put together yet, but then again I just got my bike so I'm still picking this stuff up. Is there any super secret hiding locations on a WR426 that I should know about?
