She Definitely has one. If you look carefully she is so proud of it she is advertising it on her T-Shirt it is just her Knee that is blocking the rest of the letters. >:D

customer with his own fabrication shop popped in to show us his 5L red fuel cell attached INSIDE his Rumbux rear pannier rack, very secure, misses the swing-arm, and is strong, yet light, using AHLF channel to support it.

Clever!

new at the Flying Brick Store, an anodized Handlebar plate, to fit he Africa Twins, which allows EASY fitment without cutting, of a Cigarette-socket or a Dual USB socket, as well as a RAM-mount ball, for GPS, etc, as well as pre-drilled holes for a SPOT location device.

A nice feature is that it is designed with a 'pass-thru' design for holding the cig-socket or USB socket in place, meaning to install it, you do not need to disassemble it, but simply 'pass' the cable through!
R795 at the Flying Brick Store.

And we will be carrying the plate in Blue, and Black, as well.
Kit comes with 4 spacers and 4 x M8 stainless steel bolts.

Cheers

OEM Center stand question: how many retaining springs does the OEM unit have?

I have seen two as standard on the US issue unit, mine has just one?

Thanks. Ian

OEM Center stand question: how many retaining springs does the OEM unit have?

I have seen two as standard on the US issue unit, mine has just one?

When I had the 1000k service I asked Honda CPT to fit a centre stand. When I collected there was one spring fitted and queried with the technician who said it came with two but he felt one was sufficient  ;)

I took the 2nd one and fitted it at home as per the instruction manual. Confidence in Honda CPT workshop... not so much

Any news of the pricing on the Roxfox luguage plate- or possible good alternatives?

Does the Roxfox pannier bags fit on without having to make any changes to the bike eg cutting away your plactics etc?

Hi Louis L

Luggage Plate is R700 inc.

And yes our pannier racks fix to the bike without having to cut into the plastics, we use a clamping system making use of the slots on the bikes rear frame.

Pannier Racks R1950 inc.

Pricing is ex workshop.
