Accessories and Products / MMoto crashbars for DCT
« Last post by casselmb on Yesterday at 05:43:17 PM »
Has anyone installed the crashbars for the DCT model made by MMoto?

Link: http://www.mmotoracks.com/product/engine-guard-crash-bars-for-dct-for-honda-vfr1200x-crosstourer

Search results show a few positive reviews. I purchased these via eBay and they showed up this weekend. They seem well made and solid. However, they didn’t include any installation instructions. The website shows 4 attachment points, which seems straightforward. But they sent 4 different size/length bolts, 2 of which have washers. I have no idea which one goes where and I’m a little nervous about experimenting as I’m not very mechanically-experienced. Can anyone offer some guidance?

Thanks for looking.

This happens on Tuonos as well. That part (number 3) sometimes get called the "dog bone" for obvious reasons. The problem is that its not a part that is easy to clean...yet picks up a lot of muck from the road etc. Not sure the cost of the Honda part, but the Tuono one is not that expensive. If you decide to change one after inspection (too late in this case)...make sure you do the bearings also while you are at it.

My initial thoughts are to check out the handlebar switchgear for the lights, both on/off and Hi/Low, as it does sound like you have a short.

Electrickery takes the path of least resistance, so there may be just sh!t in the switch creating a short.
Enough to bypass the normal circuits but not enough to blow the fuse!

Clean it out and give it a squirt of ACF, again if you don't have that try WD.

Managed to remove the ignition barrel yesterday and then realised I could have got access to the contacts by removing the plastic cap on the bottom  :138:
Anyway, checked for continuity and all good. I then started to check each fuse for power in turn and found something a bit strange, although not really sure what it means, maybe a short in the ignition circuit??
With the key switch to ON, when I pulled the 10amp fuse for the ignition circuit (3rd from bottom in attached pics) the dash lit up and when I put the fuse back in the lights went out and no power anywhere, Would appreciate your thoughts!! Also if you can send me the Wiring diagram I'm sure it will will be really helpful going forward.

Regards

Please don't compare the OEM shock with only a Hyperpro pring against a fully adjustable shock.
I still go for the complete Hyperpro and the fact that they did the bushings wrong only makes my choice stronger.
The hassle you had to get here also doesn't work in favor for Tractive.
Hope it's worth is in the end.

Hallo Ray!  You like Hyperpro, you buy Hyperpro!
I made my choice and i bought and install Tractive shock!
Time will tell if it is good or not!
With this topic i want to share my expirience to others about Tractive Shock! If you do not like my choise ok! If you do not like Tractive suspesion, open another topic and write about your expirience!
It is nonsens, to sugest what i could do with my money, maybe i should buy white or grey Crosstourer not red/black!
I m happy with my choice!

If this has already been answered I apologize in advance (searched and couldn't find anything similar).  I just fitted PLR1110CAM side racks on my 2016 with GIVI Trekker Outback 37 cases.  Everything went smoothly, but I noticed the front of the cases point outward (wider at passenger pegs) and narrower at tail.  This looks odd.  Is this normal and by design to allow more leg room for passenger room?

Preload adjuster has, if i count good 62kicks and thay send me a shock 27klicks in.
This gave me 10mm static and 35mm rider sag!
Oem shock full in 53mm!
Hyperpro + oem shock 8 klicks out 50mm!
After short ride 5km on the very bad road, shock works better than oem +progresive Hyperpro.
I need some playing with to maybe make it perfect, but i m allready happy!!
Time will tell about quality, but some members hier have this shock and thay did not complain!
👍💪
