Honda Africa Twin Sub Mount / Tower CRF1000L 2016 - 2018
This shows the Africa Twin, CRF1000L Sub mount, that mounts under the bars and retains the rubber vibration dampening system for a smooth, stable ride. This is a bolt on kit that mounts in less than an hour in most cases. It also allows plenty of room for extra components such as GPS and Route maps mounts etc. It offers two different bar mount positions to accommodate tall or short riders.
The Mount-Kit-Only includes everything except the stabilizer and link arm. This mounting kit includes a new SUB mount/Bar mount assembly, billet aluminum frame bracket, tower pin, instructions and all necessary hardware. This application requires the stabilizer be mounted in the reversed position but uses a standard link-arm. The bar mounts are reversible to achieve 2 different mounting positions, position 1 is 14mm forward of stock, and position 2 is 24mm forward of stock, both of which are normally desirable on this bike. Taller riders will like the 24mm position normally. This is a significant improvement to the stability of this big Adventure bike.
"SUB" mount stands for Stabilizer Under Bars, originally designed for raising the bars. These kits are designed for use with Oversize bars. "Bar reducers" are available as an option, to convert the kit to standard diameter bars, should that be desired. This concept allows more room for other equipment such as, Global Positioning Systems(GPS) or Enduro/Rally computers and yet still retain the quick access for adjusting the stabilizer. This is also good for the taller rider who wants his bars a little higher, as it raises the bar location approximately 11-25mm, depending on the model of bike. In some cases, you might consider a lower bend handlebar bend at the same time, unless you are trying to achieve a higher bar height along with your stabilizer installation. The SUB mounts are only available on certain models based on the physical limitations of mounting in this area. Each SUB mount comes complete with all necessary parts, hardware and "Step by Step" pictured instructions. If you have any questions, feel free to call or email us.
