Another dirtbike build "BMWsaBERG"

Ooh that's going to be a very progressive shock. :-)

I half expected you to go for a center shock with that narrow upper frame.

This is starting to look like a seriously badass bike.

I'm wondering whether that lip on the tank where the fairing slots on is hollow or not... Looks like an ideal place to drill a hole and mount an indicator. :D

Did Dirk make you X out all the recent ugliness with your engine or did you do that of your own motivation?

Just checking, I don't like these conditional warranty things.

My GS has a 13mm MC. The MC the DRZ came with is half inch, which is 12.7mm. So all else being equal a bit harder and less feel. It's trying to stop a lardier bike, but doing so with a bigger disk....

Possible alternative: Tie the remains of the inner clutch cable to the crashbar just-so and use your toe to press down on it. Ta-dah, clutch.

Nah, I'd rather have it on the crashbar than directly in line of whatever comes off the front wheel. With the former at least I have to crash the bike first for it to get damaged. :lol3

Heidi K60 Scout.
