Can you elaborate about the TT bash plate and the SQ-Motech center stand. I was hoping to go that route when I get mine Xch. How do they interfere?
Just an FYI....I just got done installing the SW Motech centerstand with the TT bash plate and it fits fine.

Large or Small TT bash plate?

TT Large Tank Fit Issues on an ABS X-Challenge

I'm wondering if any other inmates have installed the TT large tank on an ABS-equipped X-Challenge. The tank interferes with the ABS fuse block which is mounted on the right side of the airbox, between the battery and the larger 6-fuse fuseblock.

The instructions don't mention anything about it and from the TT pictures you can tell that their bike was a none-ABS bike. The wire harness leads to the ABS fuseblock (2 fuses) does not have much extra length so relocating it properly seems to be not straight forward. I temporarily stuffed the fuseblock upside down into a nearby nook, so that I could proceed and check the rest of the tank fitment. I still have to try to come up with a better solution.

I'm curious what others have done?

You guys should check out DRC products if you don't like the tail piece, they make real nice suff and are the standard for the supermoto world. They are like 50 bucks as well.

I figured since I had the little led's from the kit, if I melted one signal I would install the led's.

No melting so not worried. (until they do melt )

I'm hoping to swap out my front sprocket for a 13t one this weekend; a 13% increase sounds about right for no interstate riding.

Are there any torque specs I'm going to need to know to get that swapped and back together safely? Can I get the necessary info off of F650GS sites? I guess I should just cave and give BMW $140 for the service manual.

OK I should elaborate... It will fit with the bash plate but not with the TT brake foot lever where the pivot now interferes with the mounting bracket on the right hand (non exhaust side) footpeg. The centre stand rubs on my bash plate, so although it would fit, it will rub.

Best site (reliable) for info on the F. Many years worth of advice collected and archived...

http://faq.f650.com/GSFAQs/TighteningTorquesGS.htm

But as always, ask questions if in doubt before turning the wrench.

Wow, that is great stuff; just what I was looking for, second only to the UPS truck showing up tomorrow. Will update with feedback on the 13T if I get it on successfully this weekend.

Please don't tell me that the Bavarian Bean Counters spec'd this bike out with open cheap-ass acid batteries?

(Did that on the Dakar's and it pisses me off to no end - piss poor engineering. Damn thing leaked w/ off road use and started to eat at the wiring harnesses.)

Nothing so bad that I wouldn't buy the bike - & swap out the battery immediatly - but damn.. .you'd think they'd learn.

PIVOT PEEGS vs POWER PEGS

Anybody tried the Power Pegs on anything....? Thumper talks seems to like 'em

Looking at the Pivot Pegs web site the HP2/GX have the same part number so as it stands the Power Pegz chaps have some catching up to do....
Will email and follow up.

I read in another post somewhere that with the pivot action of the pegs you will also save a bit of wear and tear on your boots.

Before...



After...
