Skid plate

I just rec'd my skid plate, it is just as advertised. Nice workmanship, good delivery, easy guy to deal with. I will send in some photos when I mount it up.

Looks like a great tool for RallyMoto!

With your kind of skills you could fab up something to replace the stock headlight and it would no longer be an ugli duckling.




I picture something big and round. Anyone with P/S skills here?

Sorry to not be following this thread guys... it got moved, which is fine, as I don't want to rub anyone's rhubarb... especially Arch

Yes, I'm gearing up to produce the various parts, see here:

www.strada-avventurosa.com

The Sump Guards & Fender Mounts are in stock, and the other items will follow as I get them stocked on the shelves.

multi 07 S

Hi all,
first time in my life I`ll be switching from bmw gsA to the multistrada. I`ll start with a really nice one red , cases, a lot of options. is a lot lighter than my former reliable tough 1150adv. but for me 5,7" was too heavy and couldn`t fine a reg GS in my price range. So I got this multi. Any body out there can tell me their experiences w/this bike? I understand that off road won`t be the same as the beast but the 10% of my off rd riding i think it should be fine. What`s is your opinion duc riders???? I`ve see in youtube some videos where some guys get the multis off rd and get them a bit dirty

Wow, this is an old thread! And I'm in no way biased

Many of my customers and myself regularly get them dirty, and aside from rider ability, it's pretty much a draw between a (2004-2009) Multi and any other beastie. They have their strengths and weaknesses, just like anything else.

For instance, everyone nicks the Multi for 17" wheels, and yeah, it'd be nice to have a GS-sized 19/17 rim combo so you could spoon on some more aggressive rubbery thingies. OTOH, I've chased, and caught (and passed) KLR650s & XR650s piloted by B-class enduro riders, on sandy Michigan backroads, mainly because the thing loves to lean on the rear and just roost..... and I'm no Mike Lafferty... not even on TV

The geometry is a little steeper than anything else, but again, it just doesn't seem to be an issue off road, at least I've never noticed... and I don't have a steering damper. The Ohlins-suspended ones are easily adjusted to suit dirt, and the Showa legs are a 5w fork oil/gold valve away from being very good as well. Landing small jumps doesn't faze it either. Raised up to its highest, the bike's ground clearance is pretty close to any other beast, and it is possible to prang the exhaust header if you go crazy, but so is the F800GS.

The Multi is very sensitive to low-rpm throttle body balance, which can be adjusted with an old fashioned manometer, and is a set-it and forget it thing. G2 makes a throttle tamer for the bike that helps and dialing down the stock timing advance curve below 4k with a Dynojet box makes a marked difference. Gearing is easily changed with an inexpensive 14T countershaft sprocket. The dry clutch ones need just a little TLC, but my previous one lasted almost 40,000 miles, and can be replaced in 10 minutes with a 4mm hex key (try that with your boxer GS. )

The air intake is directly behind the top triple; pretty much the only way to ingest water is to drop it in same. the stock bars are too low to comfortably stand, but they are either standard 7/8 or taper bars, so the world is your oyster there. The Multi can easily pull 50mpg on-road, and is hard pressed to get under 40 at any time, which combined with a 5.4gal tank, makes for pretty decent range - and it happily runs on the lowest-octane crap you care to pour in it, no knock sensor required.

There are no critical parts sticking out of the bike that can get easily damaged in a fall - a la boxer GS's. Though the very upper front corners of the tank could get pranged in an lengthy on-road slide, they're almost impossible to damage off-road, in stark contrast to a KTM 950 (and I make some handy crash bars )

Pavement is no contest - the bike flat rips. Loaded-up, two-up, it doesn't care... it'll check out on anything. And with slip-ons, other guys ride behind you on purpose.

Now all we need is a hard luggage option for our Hypers and we'd be all set. Just sayin'.
