    Good work Barnone, bar mirror excellent idea, will look for some myself, likely to knock 'em off on trees though in the bush. Are they easy to slip in and out, say if you want to go into town after a bush bash? And the small muffler, does that really work ok? I fancy one from a smaller bike myself for looks and especially cheapness. Hmm might burn a passengers legs though? Tose tusk tank bags look good aswell, do they require the fuel cap fitting or could they be strapped on do you think? (my cap is recessed).

    Can we have a closer look at you tank bag, more pics please! My tank is also some kind of plastic, similar shape to yours. I see the bag fits onto the tank through a hole. How else is it secured to the tank?

    $18. USD a pair off ebay so they are sacrificial and I only used one so fall over the other way.lol
    I kinda went crazy adjusting it so I don't plan to pull it off. Until the other day I didn't know anything about bar end mirrors so I just the ordered the cheapest ones I could find but they work great. It a fish eye mirror so you see just fine behind you with just one mirror.
    The small silencer works just fine. The XF200 comes with a heavy restrictive can with cat so anything is an improvement. I need a small pipe expander to make a short extension to move the shorty up about three inches to get it under the plastic.
    That bag needs to fit over a tank spout to hold it on.

    Slabo,

    This is the best picture I have. I will get you a better one tomorrow. The bag comes with a two velcro squares that stick to the tank with like squares on the bag but I use a small bungee cord across the front to hold it in place. I'll take a picture.

    i have been looking at these which is how I recognised the 'tusk' brand bag and how it fits.They are designed for ATV fuel tanks but sling well across a dirtbike where the magnetic ones won't because of plastic tank. You do seem to need a 'sticking-up' fuel cap though as i am sure the pics coming will show. I have seen similar on Ebay in camo as well as black for about $18 and there are some in the link below:

    I punched a small hole in the front on the Tusk bag on both sides, inserted a zip tie through the holes, and then used a small bungee across the front of the tank to hold the front of the bag down.

    Changed out my taillight and painted the rear rack black.



    The taillight has integrated turn signals so I removed the stock ones.
