Slapped on a few stickers ...

Had a few stickers laying around so I figured why not slap them all on the Dirty Dak and move up the "Poser" latter.

What's the effect of having the forks so far thru the yokes?

I guess a little more trail to improve the steering. But damn those are down far!

Can't really say since I had SPS up the suspension to 265 mm right after I got the bike. As far as I can tell, the bike handles fine, but can't really compare it to anything...

The only reason for this was to lower the front end so I can touch the ground... I'm 5.7 with 28" inseam .

Rekluse EXP Clutch

Got this from Duel Sport Armory today:







Followed the instructions in this video step by step:


Remove the clutch cover:


Remove clutch plate cover:


Remove friction plates and replace them with the Rekluse provided plates:


Insert Rekluse EXP friction disk:


Install Rekluse clutch slave:


Make adjustments and take it for short test ride:


So simple to do and such a HUGE difference! This mod makes it so much easier to manage the bike, especially since I can hardly reach the ground...

I would think that it steers super fast and sucks in the sand.

Best mod ever - makes a world of difference in the slow technical stuff. Oh, and makes traffic a breeze.

Replaced once again the balancer shaft seal and installed the oberon slave mounting 'thing' since the oem plastic one was warped (and the oem spare costs as much as the billet one )

Hope you don't mind I post a 1190 adv R, the thread dosn't specify the model.....

I toke away all the useless stuff:
crash bars
penniers attachments
passenger handles
rear rack

In addition I painted in black the side spoiler protectors from the std model and installed them.

with the addition of the akra I toke down the weight from 218 to 206 kg.
