Lockjaw Sorry I missed your Q, dude. The fender is a Acerbis Supermoto. The fork brace is a superbrace I won in a contest on here. Both have worked out well for me. Getting rid of the sail of a fender made the most notable difference. Well worth $20.

Snakeboy66 Good Evening All,
Seeing as this post has gone off on a tangent I will start a new one.

Snakeboy66 Alrighty then...I have finished installing the SW Motech Pannier Racks. What beautiful german engineering. The racks came with everything you would need to install and move the tail lights to the rear of the luggage rack. It went on smothly and look great. I especially like the quick remove system.
I noticed that after I installed them there is a little greay sticker that states the maximun weight limit for the racks. 27.5 lbs per side. This has me worried as the ammo cans are at least 10-12lbs each. This will seriously bite into my carrying capacity.
Should I go ahead with the ammo cans or buck up and buy pelican. Which would be lighter?

Seasoned opinions sought......... P.S. Lockjaw, where o where did you get the fork brace and smaller fender? Nice touch..

That was one is weak, but Karen wants to watch Breaking Bad.

You have a fork brace on your bike Lockjaw? Do you notice any difference in the handling? I think yours is the first 08 I've ever noticed with the brace. BTW, the bedliner looks great!

Cheers,

Yeah, I won it in on contest on here. It makes a difference, but not as much as the smaller fender did. And thanks!
