Well I am still continuing to make the xr PNWDual sport worthy. Installation was a snap . One little mod I did was add heat shrink to the clamps. Not a fan of metal on painted metal plus heat shrink is just cool stuff.



Out of the box



Heat shrink on clamps






Finished product





Pretty cool! Great fit and a quality product

I tell you for my first post with pictures I hope this works out. Tryed once and the power went out in the area. powers on down the street and I found a unsecured wifi signal. Still have to figure out how to make the pics a little bigger. Details.

Good work, looks sweet!

That is a great tip putting the heat shrink on the clamps first. I will have to remember that.

I wonder how the black anodized plate they sell holds up. I wonder if it would look like a mess after a few scratches.

BTW I liked the Ricochet plate on my WRR.

I think it would look pretty hammered after a while of gliding over rocks ect.

We have a Ricochet on our TW, it's a great plate thumb
