DR650 Ralle Moto / Safari tank / Stem collar & pin



Need advice.....

I want to fit a Ralle Moto damper to a DR650 with a 32L Safari tank. The space for the collar & upstanding pin look small.

Does the collar provided by MSC / Ralle Moto fit with a 32L Safari tank?

I don't have the collar, but do have the damper from my F800 GS..

Any one running similar?

I have been very happy with the damper on the 800 GS for almost three years now.

Cheers
Koos

Short answer is 'yes' - it does fit. Alex fitted mine for me (thank goodness as if I'd tried to do it I would have broken something/everything). Drop over and check it out some time if you want to have a close look.

Just been talking to farcall about the Scott damper he has fitted, this is also with the 32ltr tank, Never had one before but times are changing and need to keep up with the tecnolology bit.

My mate's used to fit, then the tank grew considerably, so we had to take to it with a heat gun to reshape the tank a bit.

32L tank? Mine is a Safari, marketed as 30L.
Fit with the rallye moto damper OK, until I fit the Lynx fairing. Had to make a aluminium plate under the bar clamps to hold the dash panel. This raised the damper, which then needed a longer pin.
First time round the leverage was too much and the clamp worked loose. A bit of extra grunt with the Allen key and it seems to be hanging in there.

yip...watch out dark side...I hope the riding is good there

Thanks for the replies all.

I will order the collar [spigot post clamp] and have a go. There are bar risers on the bike.

See you on the trails.....

Rallye Moto Damper

You may need to get a new actuating arm as well if the damper is off a differant bike. Mine came new for a DR and had the wrong arm. The factory sent the correct arm when I told them the problem. You might need to tell them the bike it was on and what it is going onto.

Thanks Dave

If the actuating arm you mention is = spigot post clamp, then I am getting that.

There are risers on the bike with renthal bars, I will see if they work, if not get the Ralle Moto ones.
