The red ones are the ones that are mostly loose. Mine had vibrated so there was black oxide. Nylok nuts or/and Loktite  :thumleft: Check the lower one as well.

I tightened the red ones with a 1/4" drive socket. Both sheared off. I replaced with stainless allen caps and nylocks.

I doubt if this mount is that important. If I engineered it, it would be more beefy or at least thicker bolts!

Regarding the luggage rack. I also wanted to fit racks to brace the RSF. Not doing it for now.

I have a smallish alu luggage rack, bolted through the rear mudguard to a stainless bracket.

Subframe was gusseted.

I had a custom tail pack made, the size of the luggage plate, with 4 seperate pouches attached. The front pouch is for the slightly heavy tools, and actually rests on the mudguard, between the rack and seat.

I'm sticking to this for now. I mostly use the Husky for 3 day Swazi trips, for which I pack lightly.

I'll post pics, which are on the 610 general maintenance thread.

Tail pack. Tools in the front pouch. Light stuff in the rest!

RSF has survived two 3 day Swazi Hard Core Rides so far. Only had the new tail pack on for the last.

I've added more padding to the seat. With padded cycling pants my bum now survives 3 days in the saddle. I'm no Meerkat, and sit most of the time!

The rear of the seat is slightly shorter than original, and has a slight lip, to gain access to the Dzuss fastener. Like I mentioned, the space between the luggage rack and seat is taken up by the tool pouch.

In sand I find my bum against the tool pouch, which is perfect for me.

Bike looking good. Ja some of those italian bolts must be made of spaghetti. For noting stainless bolts are weaker than most steel and stainless is also susceptible to vibration fatigue more. Ideally one wants good spec high tensile bolts for engine mountings.

That's all I had at home. Will keep an eye on them. 👍

I requested the gussets up to the ends of the subframe. The fabricator did not do it. At least they strengthen the front bolt holes, which should be the weakest point.

I pack light, and with damping on factory setting, the subframe is hammered less than before.

I never realised that I'd have to remove the gear from clutch basket by drilling and punching out the rivets. I don't have the tools (or finesse) at home, so off to the workshop I go tomorrow...

I have some significant wear and tear on the washers and you'll see that the one spring was very loose!

Chopper, I really like that seat. I'm considering some form of "pull over" as I'm not too keen to modify the actual seat and I don't want to buy a new one.

A pull over is an excellent idea!

Already have a pair in my garage.  :thumleft:   This is exactly why I'm busy with the repair. However, I'm not the greatest reader and missed the part about drilling out the rivets and punching them back in.  ::)

I have to be honest, at the moment I don't understand the function of the springs as I cannot see anything that will push against them, allowing them to compress. Can the inside gear that comes out the back turn or is it fixed to the outer gear? I'm sure once they have come apart and the springs are out, I'll have a better understanding.

Btw, should I be worried about springs that look like this? I mean the actual spring...

Do you have the service limit of the springs? If they are within limits, I wouldn't bother. Condition of the other springs?
