    Can I drill into a head tube?!

    Got some progress on the tower, just working out all the angles. I will probably need to extent the fairing out an extra 2”. The bars come close to the tower at full lock.
  2. Hello all, I am looking to get a group together for the 2019 Roaming Rally Classic. East Ontario May 23 - 26. This is a hardcore adventure/dual sport ride. Hydro lines, water crossings etc. I need at least 2 other “experienced” riders to be in my group, or a group I can join. Riders need to be tough, sleeping in the bush for 2 nights, we boots, really rough stuff. All gear needs to go on the bike. Gps, tubes, DOT tires, spoons, med kit all required.

    Thanks man! I will keep you up to date [emoji1303] I’m also thinking about copying all my templates into CAD. That way if anyone wants to make one I can send them all the dimensions. They would just need to have the aluminum cut and a few bends put in it.

    Any way to paint a clear oversized tank?

    Not 100% true. They make good metal backed ventilated graphics that stay on just fine.

    I have a design worked out, however I am currently in finals week so that has me consumed. I will start making the tower on Thursday. Progress should be fast, just some cutting and welding needs to be done.

    Anyone ever make a custom graphics kit?

    Right, these tanks can swell a lot, I have bought expensive graphics before and they just lift off due to the fumes :/

    Ya, the tank has a lot of curves though. I’ll see if I can just find some graphics

    Or I could just strip it and paint it once a year ?

    It was cheap, but the clear is so ugly

    Any way to paint a clear oversized tank?

    I have seen several after market tanks that have been painted, however the paint always bubbles up and looks like crap. Has anyone tried that plasti dip stuff? Even if I have to peel it off once a year and re do it. The tank shape makes it very difficult to put graphics on. Just checking to see if anyone has any “tricks” to paint a clear tank.

    “Roaming Rally Classic” it’s a 3 day event in Ontario Canada. Teams of 3, live off the bikes, no support. More off a hardcore adv ride.

    Haha yes! I have been planing this for some time now [emoji1303] take it easy

    Not that heavy. I am designing my tower so that I can swap between a road book holder (more for racing).. and a custom adventure one (gps Montana, gauge cluster, and I have an iPad I use for gps when I am not somewhere super remote). I will try to get a picture. Tower needs to be strong because it stretches away from the bike, so that weight has a lot of leverage on the mounts. And if I crash I don’t want my tower to rip off the bike.

    Snapped a few pictures. Just finished up a custom skidplate. Might need to start over with it though, (looking for a low swept exhaust)
