Installed this today. The original clutch action was smooth and light but I'm surprise by how much lighter the Oberon is. You can operate the clutch lever with your pinky. 

Tip: Don't get your teenage daughter to help you bleed the clutch...........

Going to try this setup - already thinking a smaller rack.

I just strap directly to the standard grab handle rack. Works for me and I really like having the handles for moving the bike about.

Unfortunate. Sometimes you get guys not using them on SM's or just prefer a rack and are willing to part with them.

I am looking at options for a 14 day trip. 30L back pack for all my clothing food,tools ect but would like to have my tent and sleeping bag stuff on the back of the bike.

I have the rade garage luggage rack but it seems like the bags to fit on these racks is quite limited. Anyone got any advice ?

Where does that rear panel decal come from (with the H logo)? Look pretty cool.

For the Tent and stuff would suggest a 51lt ENDURISTAN TORNADO DRYBAG and for other luggage THE ENDURISTAN BLIZZARD SADDLEBAGS (4 sizes available) -

It is part of the Husky sticker kit from dealer.

Personally I avoid a backpack - makes one top heavy and is tiring. I use a Giant Loop Coyote on the rear of the seat and then add the tent, sleeping bag etc on top. I do not use a rear rack and do not want stuff too far back. I have a smallish tailbag I attach to the OEM grab handles.

The only thing that I try to avoid is covering the stupid fuel cap, So I was looking at the U bag option to keep the fuel cap open but the options is very limited. But I will look more into these giant loop bags.

On my beamer luggage was never an issue ::)

Even with my giant loop mojave, the cap is covered, otherwise the luggage is sitting too far back. It is not really a hassle to loosen it to refill.

I use both a Mojave and Coyote. If you position them on the rear of the seat they do not obsruct the filler - only if you then also add another tailbag or bag on a carrier. A tailbag is easy to loosten and lift one end up to fill.

I had my lighter bulky stuff in the blue bag and another 5 later fuel can in the GL.  This works but I did not carry a backpack.  With a backpack the GL needs to go back a bit which is not ideal in some riding conditions.

I hate a backpack - tiring and makes everything top heavy.

After about 250km dirt riding, not too dusty after all the rain we’ve had, and nothing in the airbox, some sort of pre-filter helps, using pool basket filters until I can find something better suited.

I use the PC 1344 pre-filters that are the perfect size.  Work great and one can easily carry spares for longer trips. TwinAir also make.

TwinAir:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Motorcycle-Airfilter-Skins-2-pack-Motocross-air-filter-sock-Twinair/290974422111

GoPro thumb screws also work great for attaching the filter rather than the supplied screws.
