Been looking all over the site for a few posts regarding these that I saw a few weeks ago. I recall WC mentioning the FJR Tech site, also someone posted some pics of homemade bolts for them. I have a set of the new (04) ones, and have run into a little problem. The hardware list on WC's tech site calls for the following Suzuki numbers-

Quantity Suzuki P/N Nomenclature

2 02142-06107 Screw

4 09160-06130 Washer

2 08319-21068 Nut

2 57431-06G00 Screw

2 08316-10063 Nut

Are these indeed all that are needed for the install, and are they Suzi numbers, or Honda, as one parts site came up with?

I cleverly hid this info... in the column heading. :haha:

:D I punched the numbers in at a fiche site, recalling some had mentioned godawful pricing for some hardware (must have been for the older version). The prices came up under a Honda header rather than Suz, hence my asking. The parts listed were less than $5 total, so sumpin didn't seem right. Thanks. Ya skirt wearin' long haired Iron Butted (delete)...... :p

C'mon, help a bruther out. Someone posted a pic of a homemade bolt arrangement for attaching these things, and I'll be damned if I can find it using every search idea I have.

Bite the bullet and buy the incredibly expensive suzuki pivot bolts. I was stubborn enough to lathe mine from brass and it was just not worth the time.

Thats what I did. 'Bout $50 all told.
Yes, it is painful to buy the correct (but spendy) hardware, I agree.

But the ability to keep your hands out of the airstream during winter months is worth it, believe me. Ride a winter up here in the frozen tundra of the Pacific Northwest (on the dry, cold side of the Cascades, deep in the High Desert of eastern Washington), and you'll become a believer.

The dealer I ordered the stuff from had a new V-Strom on the floor. Looking at the install convinced me. Nice set up, not a bad looking machine either.

You should be fine. I have the D&D risers also, and my Hand Guards don't even come close to the ECM Shelf, much less the windscreen....

Mind you, I have the 2nd -generation V-Strom Hand Guards.

WC, does the ecm shelf shake the shit out of the stuff you have on it??? :eek:
Nope..... it is rock steady for me, even at speed.

Then again, I don't carry a metric buttload of crap on there, just four items: the V1; the GPSIII+ (though not often); the Datel voltmeter, and the Datel ambient air temp thermometer:

I've contacted our man Andy Lovelace about these numerous times over the past year- year and a half.... methinks he feels they won't move enough product due to the price involved getting them to market .

While they are deadly accurate and absolutely worth it to me, I guess he feels not enough folks will want these at $80-$90/ea....

Are you talking about the cunt boxes??? Or the ecm shelf...

Also WC does the painted windscreen hurt the performance of your V-1???

Neither. We speak of the Datel ambient air temp gauge.

Bummer. Though a bit pricey, I am still searching for the holy grail of temp gauges, and that one may very well be it.

Thanks for the info.
