I looked into it a month or so ago, through Sunstate in Maroochydore, they could get them no problems, around the $300 mark.

Ah, thanks Joe, looks like the three main options (Givi, SW Motech & H&B) are all around the same price.

Cheers

Hey Lockey, where's your top mount. H&B's fit where Ventura/gearsack racks mount and clash..... just south of there. Mick ?

Mick, i have no idea where the Hepco racks or the Ventura racks mount, I use two top mounts a cross bar under the rear rack and a tag fitted under the front mount point of the alloy rack. If that helps. Locky.

Pennytech Stoneguard

Built myself a stoneguard, not intended for stumpgrinding but quite suitable for my 90/10 style of riding. It came up alright, but it's only 1mm thick (that's what I had so that's what I used) and I'm considering it as a prototype only, now that I know how I might make a thicker one out of stainless.

thanks to Gravehunter over on Stromtrooper for the inspiration and basic design.

left side


I reckon it adds to the overall look of the bike


hopefully no more of this...



Cheers,
Pete.

I've just adopted a K8 DL650A, 9944 K's, been used as a commuter and now will be molded into my adv. mount.

First up will be a B & B Bashplate,

next will be crashbars, Hepco Becker, Givi and Sw motech seem to be the main brands, but I'm unsure if on is better than the other ie higher/better protection. ?

next will be some ATV bars, but its seems theres a few different bends ?

the it will be a set of Barkbusters, but can't decide between the VPS or Storms.

then I'm thinking it might be time for a pipe, but the jury's still out on that, but the bike does feel like it's choking a little.

Just checking out a bit about tyres for a mate with a 650 V-Strom.

He's currently running Anakees, OK in most conditions, not much good in greasy conditions, as you would expect.

A couple of questions.

Are any of the other 80/20 style tyres markedly better for off road conditions without a major sacrifice of durability.

What about knobby looking tyres (Karoo, TKC80, any others?) Look like they'd be alright on the dirt, what sort of mileage can you expect?

Doesn't seem to be much in between like a 50/50 tyre. I've found the Heidenau K60 (but dunno if they're available)..any others?

Any feedback appreciated.

I have a set of Heidenau K60's on order, read good things about them and its about all there is apart from TKC 80's.
