anyone still accumulating parts for a quick change rear gear and rubber setup:

no affiliation with the seller.

I've finally got a complete spare rear wheel and second drive hub for my ADV and singletrack setups.

Question Aqualine + Brittania Comp + HDB?

I'm currently running an Aqualine Safari tank with a Britannia Composites fairing and Fat bars. I'd like to add a HDB set of hand guards with clamps, but I'm concerned about clearance between the tank and the ABS portion of the fairing. I'm already hitting the tank before I run out of steering lock.
Anyone running a similar setup? Successfully?

Stock Flasher Relay

In search of a DR650 stock flasher relay.. I gave away my stock unit to a member doing a RTW trip after I switched to LEDs, but I am in the process of returning my other DR650 back to stock so looking for this part. If you have one please let me know! PM me please :)

Thanks!

Labor Day Ride

I'm heading out tomorrow for a four-day ride up around Mount St. Helens, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood (probably in that order). If anybody else is up in that area this weekend, wave if you see me. White DR650, purple frame, clear ScreensForBikes screen, Givi side luggage, a MotoFizz bag on top (with sleeping bag on top of that), etc. I have an ADV sticker on the back of my left-side case and an old-style ADV sticker on the headlight cowling under the windscreen. Oh and LED aux lights too.

I'll take lots of pix and try to do up a RR when I return.

Rob

Hey all, what is the name of the clip, or more importantly can it be procured separately that connects the turn signal wires to the main wiring harness? I don't want to cut mine to splice in some aftermarkets but would rather fab up an OEM connector.

These are what I used to wire up aftermarket LED signals w/o having to splice. Get 2 pairs (one for front/one for rear)

edit: I've put a good 2,000+ miles including being out in the rain and no issues yet with mine.

Not sure they do. Instead, go the other direction. A number of us are running 16/46 (520) for road use, then keep 14T and 15T's around for off-road. I love this gearing setup... had it on my bike for about 13k miles and it's ideal for the road. If I'm going to do extended dirt, the 15T goes on in a matter of minutes.

They have one at Procycle. It is in the "Individual 520 Sprockets & O-Ring Chains" section. It costs $19.95.

frecks screwed with this post 08-30-2012 at 02:28 PM Reason: Added the price.

Can you use a 525 rear sprocket with a 520 chain?? I would put a fresh sprocket on anyway if your rear sprocket is worn.
