M72DX, X, D, C weight


Sorry to drag up a thread from June, but I am looking into hacking my F650GS (2007 single).

My brother owned a 1984 Moto Guzzi California II with a Velorex sidecar. I rode it and loved it. I also worked on the carburetors a lot! I have a pic of me flying the empty chair in a 360 in a large parking lot. The only bad thing was it bogged on steep upgrades and in heavy headwinds (Wyoming especially) and that made it a bear on the freeway.

How suitable is the M72 for a 50hp F650? Empty weight with a spoked wheel would be a good starting point. I like the look of the M72 and would like a seat and trunk instead of playing enduro sidecar racer with the platform and handrail.
