HF, thanks a lot for this thread, perfect for my new Strada. Your pictorial is excellent.

The idea just popped nn my head, because there is more fingernail polish in my master bath than tools in my garage. Life is not fair....occasionally, you try to even the score.

I've not tried it, but might work. But the heat put off by the 100,000 lumens might melt the polish. Hhhmmm....

I'm sure the Terra hubs are right out of the F650 parts bin, but are all of these variations with different bolt spacing or hole diameter? Inquiring minds want to know. I want to go up to 50 on the rear for a little more slow speed control without slipping the clutch. I never know when I might want to get foolish on some trail that I shouldn't be on. Want to leave the large 16T countershaft sprocket alone. Big is good!
Supersprox all the way, blaisew! Don't select on your own, call them on the phone. They will make a sprocket specific for your bike, even if they don't have it listed. I had them make a me a custom 45 tooth rear sprocket for my F800GS to get the gearing setup right where I wanted it. They charged me a little extra....$50 maybe, I forget.....and it's a work of art.

Best way to go, for sure. I'll definitely switch to Supersprox when I wear down the stocker a good bit.

You are welcome, Mr. Deans! Let your stupid side run free....stop suppressing it. Probably even add years to your riding life.

It's the ABS sensor mount on the high performance model! In the US, for 2013 at least, only the Strada has ABS. In some other countries there is a Terra version available with ABS.

[QUOTE=blaisew;20313921]Tools? What tools? Evidently only the European bikes had them as I have yet to hear from any US owners with tool kits. The only tool of any note included over the pond is the rear shock adjusting spanner. I used an old spanner from the 70's to adjust mine, but it was very tight in there. I don't think I could get it to work in the tightening direction, either. I put my shock on full soft since the bike is set up for a passenger, and stiffened the rebound. More testing needed to see if enough rebound is cranked in.


I got a tool kit with my Terra (2nd batch). It's pretty worthless but it does have a spanner wrench for the rear shock. It wasn't under the seat. My dealer gave it to me in a box with the manual and 10lb plate bracket.

Aussie tool kit! I did get a curious USB stick with the same crapy manual on it.



Some oil change tips would be good - the air filter info was useful - thanks

Also I am going to fabricate some pannier mounts for USA motosports bags - soft ones. I have the loops. Looking at spacers to lift the rear rack and uliise these as mount points as well as the point available on the pillion peg brackets.

I haven't got around to stripping off all the plastics yet just the two red bits - I'd be keen to see any pix of the rear subframe

Havent done any major dirt roads yet - bit worried about smashing the cases (no bash plate).

Really enjoying this bike,

Dave

Deans ----that bag on HF's bike is a Wolfman Peak------nice little day ride bag---I've been using that bag for years ---it's expandable too-----------shown un-expanded in HF's picture. Use it on my WR250R also.

For X-mas my wife got me this Wolfman "Wolftail" bag-------it's expandable also and has 3 outside pockets and can be purchased with an optional rainfly. These bags are amazingly water resistant without the fly.

It's much bigger than the peak bag and is nice if you need more room. I will use this bag on my KLR, 950 and WR250R also.

OK, I have a dumb question! I pulled off the left bar weight to reconoiter what has to happen for crash guards and found a metal plug in the end of the bars. How do you remove this? I didn't get too crazy with my pliers, but I did try to rotate it. No go. So, how does it come out? Yeah, dumb, but there it is.

I think I'm going to try HDB guards and hope that I can get the ignition key in and out. A little bar riser will help there.

That threaded insert is welded in------I just cut about 1/4" of the bars off and it just fell off then----it's just welded at the very end. I used an air driven cut-off wheel to do it. But a sawzall or even a hack saw would be just fine. The handlebars are just thin steel.

Ahhhh, the man with the answer! I don't feel so dumb now, and I'm glad I didn't expend much more energy trying to pull those things out. Between the end weights and the plug there is a good bit of weight out on the ends of the bars. Mark, did you notice any more bar vibration with the protectors on and the end weight removed?
