I'd also like some engine guards for my 14 Norge.Let us know what you find out, and thanks.
They should fit, doubtful they made a special frame for police bikes. I'm going to inquire if they can be sold to non law enforcement folks. If so and they'll fit, something I will put on.Looks like they are referencing the lower mount point, not how the bumper appear. Also looks like some minor lower fairing surgery will be needed. Oh well.I'll buzz them tomorrow, their email contact form has issues.Good find.
I wouldn't mind having crash bars on my Norge. I think they might come in handy! Plus, I imagine I could mount highway pegs to the front bars and make long distance runs even more enjoyable.
I'm determined to find highway pegs for the Norge, remember finding some custom ones for the FJR. They mounted directly to the engine, were a little offset, but they worked!
Alas, it does not seem like the case guards will work. The mounting poibts are different and would require fabrication. While that in itself isn't a show stopper, it looks like these are not bolt on affairs.Once you start fabricating it might be as easy or difficult to just have some tubing bent up to make a decent pair as you like. It might cost a little more to have someone do it but then you'd have exactly what you want.As for vibes. Isolating the pegs if you want to use the holes already there ( look just below the header and between it and the oil cooler cover (looking from the side) should be possible without hacking things up. You'll get some flex but then it isn't going to affect anything. If you use a sleeved kind of damper it would remain pretty stable and not feel like a bendomatic affair. I think McMaster Carr sells something like that.
X'plain please?[/quiote]There are no mounting points for the lower portion if the bars. If you look at the drawing for them, they have forward facing holes while the closest mounting points possible in the Norge we have are sideways.The mounting part in the diagram is actually just a bolt. The bars are meant for police only bikes, contrary to even what I thought. Maybe an L bracket of sorts would work but you'd have to buy the bars first and hope everything would line up.I did call and was advised to go check the mounting points first, the parts are special order only, you order you own it. The advice was good and that is my finding. I could be wrong but as these are just bent tubing it seems that if the need or desire was that great, making up a set might be the better way to go.I might give it a shot, using copper or plastic tubing to make a prototype and then have someone fan up a righteous set, powder coat them and go with that.
I love the fairing on my Norge, but it does get in the way of bolting stuff to the frame, doesn't it?If decent crash bars are available for the Norge II, I would seriously consider (carefully) drilling holes through the fairing bits to attach them to the frame. And then I would bolt highway pegs to the front crash bars and cruise on down the highway!
Using flat stock you might not have to modify the fairing much, just shaving it a bit. Some reinforcement on the back side to compensate for any material you removed and it should be doable. Something on the order of 1/2" thick ought to do it. Try it with some 1/2" abs and a heat gun. Another option is to bolt on a plate and then drill it and screw in a rod or tube to extend out. Make it custom to you and have what you want.
Will pull off the lower faring this spring and see what I can figure out!
I'll sure it can be done. There are some unused & threaded bolt holes at the bottom of the engine block underneath the "chin" fairing. The pegs could be mounted there. A hole would have to be cut in the fairing to get the pegs out laterally.
Harper's Highway Pegs?http://www.harpermoto.com/harpers-highway-pegs-and-mounts.html
Should have brought the Stelvio.
That's an interesting idea!
Don't know if the frame motor-mount is the same for the Norge? If so, I could punch through the fairing using a hole-saw and then finish with a rubber gasket.
The same. For just highway pegs no need for the hole saw, just a dremel to make a bit of clearance room. A barrel sanding bit would work very well. With so little material removal needed, if you decided to remove the pegs it would be virtually unnoticeable.
