Mr Airsafari87

If you could do a rear tail tidy for the reg plate & indicators you would be on a winner.

It is on the list of things to do.

I'd like to make a decent job of the design of it though. I've seen others which are just this horrible lump of square plastic that looks shockingly bad, and I'd like to think that I can make a neater job of it.

not meaning to take over your thread, but to the uninitiated, how strong are these 3D printed parts?? I assume that a fender eliminator requires some strength, but how far can you go?? Could printing a new mounting mechanism for our screens be accomplished in a string enough fashion?

Material selection is critical for things like that.

You need something that isn't brittle and has a little inherent flex built in to the material itself.

Would i 3D print and use a brake lever? Absolutely not.

But for something like a tail tidy, for the forces it is going to see then yes, it will definitely be strong enough as long as the part is designed correctly.

For reference. I printed these paddock stand bobbins for my little Benelli TNT and I've dragged the bike all over the garage on the paddock stands and had a decent bit of twisting force through them and they are absolutely perfect.
They are printed using ASA material. Which is more commonly known as ABS I suppose.

Sorry, just realised I didn't answer your question there.

When you say a new mounting mechanism for the screen, what do you mean exactly?

In theory though, yes it could be printed.

So cool and very generous of you to offer this....

Immediate thing that springs to mind is a go pro mount, gazillions available but nothing I can see that will let me attach a camera low down towards  the front of the bike.  I'm thinking perhaps something that utilises a fairing bolt or other mount. Possibly something that attaches to the frame sliders may also work.

Basically I want to be able to get the camera fairly low down with something more solid than the adhesive pads, they make a mount for the GS that uses the indicator bolt, still too high up but that kind of idea - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Action-Cam-Gopro-Rollei-Compatible-Mount-Bracket-Fit-For-BMW-R1200GS-Adventure/373143598452?hash=item56e1177574:g:t-gAAOSwog1fMPbI

EDIT - just found similar to what I mean, made for a Multistrada - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GoPro-Mount-Bracket-For-DUCATI-Multistrada-950-1200-1260-S-Action-Camera-Stand/402627395383?_trkparms=aid%3D1110009%26algo%3DSPLICE.COMPLISTINGS%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200220094952%26meid%3Deb36497934744234b8cc79689125f162%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D373143598452%26itm%3D402627395383%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3Ddefault%26brand%3DUnbranded&_trksid=p2047675.c100008.m2219

I think I know what you're after there?

Would you prefer it just as arm, as per that 2nd link? So that your gopro attaches to that?

Or would an actual case that bolts to the bike that the gopro also fits inside of?

So in essence it would be something similar to that laptimer case that I did above, only adapter to fit a gopro and bolt directly to the bike?

I think an arm would be fine, a case would be very cool too, but then there's the added complication of the different size gopro's or other action cams if you want to make these for others too?  Mine's a hero 9 and its quite a bit bigger than previous versions...

@Airsafari87, would it be possible to do a brake fluid reservoir? Not sure if the fluid would attach the material?

Or a cover, to make it look better?
