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.

Thanks for all the feedback about the lugguage plate :)

I heard the base model of the Twin comes without a bashplate? I have a new bashplate since the crashbars I fitted comes with its own bashplate. Anyone out there which needs a bashplate and is willing to swop me for a lugguage plate :peepwall:

Hi All

Anybody in Cape Town with a new Africa Twin that is looking for heavier springs. Im chatting to a vendor down there that imports springs and he needs to take a look at the Standard Springs, measure them, and will then be able to bring in the correct heavier rate for us bigger riders.

Please let me know if anyone can assist?

Cheers

I have put mine through proper terrain, jumps, rocks and more. I am 80kg and the spring rates are fine. But if you are more than 95kg I would suggest looking at other springs.

How exactly does the clamping system work. Do you put plastic/ rubber in the "slot" ? If not won't it rattle and make a mess?

OMG

took my sons CBR125 into Honda today for a service

They are busy building a Repsol Africa Twin with every bell and whistle on it that you can imagine, from heated grips to panniers.. Repsol sticker kit on a silver bike

I nearly had a heart attack.. its going to be a demo bike at Canal walk. Go check it out.

yeah, im not sure why they chose the base model.. If I had ti get one I think abs is quite important especially with that std tyre they put on

I like, a lot.

One suggestion, if I may?

I prefer the fuel - where feasible - lower down, for a lower COG a-n-d the spout/filler cap of the RotoPax VERTICAL, for ease of filling/less leaking (Rotopax dont leak, though), etc.

Something more like this, though it needs a frame, but you can still put two on one side (water + fuel).
(either INSIDE a pannier rack, but then it must clear the swing arm arc, or OUTSIDE of the pannier rack, which only adds 8.5cm to the width of soft pannier bags, etc.

Basically, silencers often weigh 6/7/8kg, so 'balancing this weight with say 5L fuel on the other (non-exhaust) side works well...

Just my 5C!
