Note that the mid-pipe is supposed to pass thru the flange, into the muffler; something to do with the gasket needing a surface to squish against: 15mm maybe ??

The flange will squish the midpipe no worries. The pipe going through is, I assume, (a trap I know!) to get the pulse past the gasket and taking some pressure/heat off it. Not sure its necessary, but easy to do, and makes the arguably welding easier too.

The gasket arrangement is very similar to the head/pipe junction. Mine seems to be working fine with the smaller bore midpipe .

I made up my own from some stainless steel 90 degree offcuts from a local engineering shop that were playing around making handrails. So happens that it was exactly the same dimensions as standard midpipe. I worked out the angles and cut them then took to engineering shop to have welded together with section cutoff from the the original muffler to include mount. Home made muffler bracket and had a Stainless steel flange laser cut to suit standard midpipe with the help of a fellow ADVer in Melbourne (EDIT) (see pattern in following photos to suit standard size midpipe and GSXR 1000 muffler. I then bolted all up to the bike with flange loose on the midpipe and took back into to shop to have flange welded in place.Works great.

A fellow ADVer (macdesign) and DR owner from Melbourne (sorry I said Brissy in my original post but he is in Melbourne) helped me out with a flange and he made up this diagram with measurements for me in case I could get one made locally, but that didn't eventuate, so he had a flange made up for me from stainless steel for $50.00 AUS and sent to me in Darwin (where I was residing at the time).

I am not even sure if he is around on ADV anymore.

He did at the time have the spare material and pattern ready to go and therefore had mine made up for me quite cheaply by the following contact:

Aaron Chambers
Aztech Cutting Services

Ph: 8339 0516
Fax: 8339 0531
Mob: 0419 895 820
30/283 Rex Rd,
Campbellfield 3061

Might be worth giving them a ring to see what they can do in case they have it on file.


Note -the centre hole is sized for the standard diameter midpipe, so you may need to adjust depending on midpipe used. This is for the 40FI Titanium 01/02 GSXR1000 muffler.

Cheers

Found my GSXR titanium a bit loud for my liking so purchased this baffle which at 41mm is a perfect fit

Also cut down the popping on decel a bit

spare rear

How hard is it to locate a spare rear rim/wheel. I put new Mitas E07 on and it doesn't go very good in the mud at all (I ended up dropping bike in mud and had to call on mate to help me lift the heavy beast up - but that's another story )

So anyway, if I had a spare wheel I could throw the knobby on and head out bush with a bit more confidence. But I'm guessing these are going to be rare has hens teeth. Any ideas.

If you are going to buy another grab a 18" HEAPS more tyre choices.

DR350 apparently, but may have narrower rims like 2.15 instead of 2.50.

Hi guys, new member here.

27 year old from brisbane, and grew up riding in the forest on my KX60. I then had a break for a few years. Bought a CBF200 that I wrote off (low speed, no injury) jumped on a motard DRZ400E for a while, but then needed a newbie so had a look around, rode a few bikes and came up with a DR650se. 2012, 4000km, looks to be in good condition. Has 30L safari tank, BarkBusters, BandB bash plate, Ventura racks and bags, tinted screen, and soon to also have FMF exhaust, dyno jet jet kit, and airbox mod.

Few pics:





Ill get used to it and start doing a few day trips. I would love to set up and plan to go out to Camerons Corner next year sometime.

Josh

Want to carry some light but bulky gear up front due to having full panniers & swag on the back . I have some large Rolie Bags so fitted them up. They look big but dont have much weight.
What do you think? Are they too big?


Great idea, I've been think'n of something along these lines BUT .... I'm concerned about going too wide ... ADR's limit width of a m/cycle to 1meter disregarding mirrors..... so I haven't looked around much as yet ... if your setup is less than 1m packed, please post here.

cheers
