Licencing is now done. So it is no longer a Cape bike.  I have just got some new Power products Hand guards. I find the engineering quality to be brilliant.

Fitted the rack at the back. I will be making a few racks that will be better than this.

There are a lot of racks out there - Perun Moto seems to be the bench mark though. I have avoided one so far as I am not a fan of hanging stuff out back on my bikes as inevitably the cantilever forces tend to damage something. A small tailbag though is great and at present I use the OEM tail rails for attaching one. The best design though that I have seen imho retains some grab handles in the rack design which is a great feature of the OEM handles - they are brilliant for gripping the bike when moving it around and also if you need to retrieve it in the rough. I will look for a pic.  :thumleft: 

OK the rack with the integrated grab handles that I like is made by Borys Uszatek - 3D Moto in Poland, Eastern Europe. He also make a great Fat Bertha brake lever etc.  https://www.3dmoto.pl/

Those look good. I can make them for about R800.

These are alu not steel and also have a double plate (for strength I think) at the rear. I need to investigate them closer but he has integrated some nice design elements like the holes for guys with Rotopax and strap quick release slots etc.

get a Guglatech filter for your tankfiller

Rather buy their newer filter for the actual fuel pump.

No Big, that's putting the donkey behind the cart.
Best to prevent shit to enter the tank, hence the filler-filter being best!
Yeah, filling up takes a few seconds more, but come on now, I've never been that haastig hmm?  :P

More than a few seconds more - often like 5 minutes more of dribbling and frothing over ::). And yes the filter is properly fitted and spread out in the very narrow angled neck. As I say I still have the filler filters in both tanks on two bikes, but not sure I would do the rear again like that. I think with the pump covered and the in-tank filter removed and an external Golan one would be good to go. But sure each filter does a job.

The hand guards are from KTM . I fitted them yesterday. Power products. Orange, Black or White plastics available.  I fitted black for now but white on order. What i like is the bend accommodates your long standard levers. And the clamp part that clamps onto the handlebars has a swivel for the alu guards . So it adjusts to the profile. All the edges are rounded, Just way better quality. And not badly priced. About R1600.

This fits over paper filter and under plastic cover / snorkel bit? Do you seal with grease or silicone?

Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…

The Rack is in progress , I have the proto type, I have designed it wider . I prefer wider so a duffel bag can lay across without tilting over to one side. Pic to follow. I never made the foot pegs.  The foam air filter is from the Rade tank mod. It has a metal cage inside, Which long story causes problems with sealing. So this plastic inner cage will do the trick.

That screen looks quite tall - do you have pics of it fitted to your bike? Also pics of how it attaches to the Cycra gaurds would be good (worries me a bit as any vibration or force from buffetting etc is directly transmitted to the handlebars).
