Thanks!

The tank is actually made for the S model, not my E, so I had to make some allu brackets that attach to the frame etc. took a couple of hours...but it works now! Only thing with 17l on the front...the front wheel is heavy to lift in 3rd gear :D

We'll have to get you that cam then :ricky:

HeHe! You evil man! :D

Finaly took some pics of my new mirrors.

The size and shape is nice and they cost me R360, R250 for the mirrors and R110 for postage  :mwink:
The steam is cat Alu and finished nicely




This is the bit I was after, the entire mirror can swivel on the joint. The idea being that I can turn them in while on dirt



At R250 for a set im well chufed
