Funny, I too would think the suspension is pretty nice if not for giving my brothers 640 adventure a go.

I think his Renazco seat has something to do with it too... One of these days I will get one! I have found though it has broken in somewhat, instead of an oak log it feels like a pine log now!

Steve Cramer is the importer and wouldn't sell me one directly. Just find a local shop who deals with them and they will get it for you. I'm in Brisbane and ordered through Ash's Spoked Wheels. Cost about $780.

Are you serious? The Leo Vince goes for about $400USD over here... you should get a nice ADV'er to buy it and ship it to you...

It depends on the exchange rate at the time. Our $ is sometimes as low as 60c US. Tha'll add $240 to your $400 plus postage and it ends up not that much of a saving, then if there's a problem you return it to sombody local rather than return postage to US which will cost $$$ again...... BUT at the moment our dollar is worth 87cents US so now IS the time to buy over there.

They're not a straight swap. XCh & XCo are interchangeable but the alloy rims of the XMo are different. Not sure what would be involved to make 'em fit. Look into it first.

Crash Bars

1) I have the Touratech 4.2 gal tank installed and am intersted to find some crash bars that would protect the tank on low speed spills. Does anyone know if the SW Motech, H & B or OEM BMW crashbars work with the TT tank?

2) I am going to buy the Unifilter but want to know how many are running with a pre filter and if you have a TT tank what covers are you using. SOmeone in the farkles G650 thread talked about taking one cover off and leaving the other on and maybe gettin better performance but there was no definitive

3) Acerbis Mulitiplo Handguards? What mounts work on the X....universal?

Check Highway Dirt Bike....I've had 3 set-ups on my X (Acerbis, then Cycra, and now HDB), and by far the HDB are the best.

(email Paul, the owner, he may honor an ADV discount still that will bring the cost down to Cycra levels, but these are pure beef/sex)

I got the Unifilter without the pre-filter, but I reckon you need the prefilter for 2 reasons:
1/ The unifilter acts like a bucket. Leaves, sand etc will all end up in it.
2/ Although it breathes a bit better, the fuel injection will maintain the correct air/fuel mix, so your consumption will go up (you may not care?)

I reckon the first point is most important as the air intake is quite exposed compared to the typical under the seat air intake. I definitely wouldnt take the plastic cover off unless for road use only.

I made my own pre-filter using a coarse foam from the local rubber/foam shop

I still prefer the Cycra's over these guys, have seen a few in person. They look big and bulky to me, just my 2 cents

Agree on "more beef" than the Cycras...here are 3 things I LOVE about the HDB that no other can come close:

1. Mirror integration (You know how many I've broken)
2. top clamp usage and liberating the bars for more crap (needed?)
3. the bar ends are REALLY much stronger than any other out there...and are threaded through the actual bar...good stuff

XC & saddle bags?

I am after saddle bags for the XC without all the luggage frame stuff. Does this exist? Any recommendations that can deal with the exhaust? Other easy options? I have tried searching with no luck. XC is standard, few mods and factory exhaust. Cheers - Hugo

I put handles like the xmoto on mine and cable tie a pine plank to the handles with an Ortlieb bag strapped to the plank.

Need photo's?
