Gibraltar race on big bikes 2018

Gents - I'll be doing the Gibraltar race this June 2019; looking to do the second half vs all two weeks. Heading there from the UK with a mate on a 1290 advR so if anyone else is interested, contact me to explore sharing logistics, etc.

Re: WTB pannier racks to fit 07 SE Ohio

Do you know or have you seen boatman's racks on advrider? He makes two versions: the older wolfman style oval loop ones and the newer more minimalistic ones that he and I designed which I use on my SE. It all depends which luggage you want to use to determine which is right for you...

Re: Facet fuel pump

I refuse to use anything apart from my stock fuel pump with the Dr Bean kit. Despite being an aircraft supplier, I agree that the build quality of facet has dramatically diminished over the past few years.

Re: My Se needs to be taller!

It can be altered but it’s at the general height I’ve seen on every SE which says to me it hasn’t been lowered. Yes, you can crank the ring down but all that will do is add preload to the spring. That preload won’t taise the bike but lol the spring so the bike sits highernonce you’re on it. That may...

Re: My Se needs to be taller!

Post some photos of the rear shock and forks - maybe measure the distance between the fork seal and the bottom of the tube where it meets the fork leg and we can compare.

Re: My Se needs to be taller!

So I'd say: 1- confirm that it has never been lowered (assuming you're not the original owner) 2- consider installing an ADV rear shock conversion and then extending the forks to match. The shock can be taken to 278mm travel which will raise the back of the bike by 25mm (1 inch) and its performance ...

Re: New member alert!
