Is there any advantage to having the smaller plate?

Only downside I can see is that it would appear from the photo that the starter motor is unprotected.

Yes, I have one on my bike, and you could definately use it for a grab rail. Big enough and strong enough. Although, I think the BMW rack would be more comfortable to hold...

Woody's Wheels!

Hey if anyone else is interested in new rims for their GX, now is the time to act! Woody has just made some amazing "Light as a feather, custom trick alu, wheel hubs" for the HP2 and I am begging him to make some for the GX... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...96#post5807896

At the moment if you want Excel rims you are stuck with the BMW hub which weighs TOO MUCH!

Max Kool! Weren't you thinking of new wheels for the GX?

I sure want a set of them, but I realise ordering a set of wheels at Haan Wheels here in Holland would be cheaper.

BTW, I personally don't care much for the weight of the hubs. So far they have proven to be strong enough (from the shape and finish they seem to come from the same factory as the Aprilia and Husky hubs).

Everything in the UK is pricey, there's gotta be a source for these over here. Maybe if there's enough interest for US/CAD riders, we could organize a group buy.

Any interest?

touratech tank at ims show

Hey folks!
I don't own a G650XC but I know, that a lot of people wanted some more pic's/info.
Well, I went to the IMS show in Seattle and TT had the tank on display.
According to TT, the tank will hold 16 liters; cost around $800.00 to $900.00 here in the US and will be available within the next two months.

What I noticed: It is of white color but you can look through it to check the fuel level.
It is equipped with two petcock's at the lowest possible point(check attached pic's) and will be conected to the main tank.








Hope that helps.

Krauter
