Hi Jim,
It's the standard Dakar screen, I've removed all the clocks and headlight, going to cut out all the not needed metalwork from the OE clock/headlight tree and mount the screen as shown, with two 80mm flush fitting projector style lights one above the other.

Pete

This is the sealed battery I have in my dakar. It is a direct fit replacement.

They seem to be the only ones with that battery, I ordered one two weeks ago today, and was told it's held up in port by Homeland Security.

Deka ETX-15l works and is cheap check ebay for some deals.

You toss the foam at the bottom of the tray spit on the sides and squeeze it in. Tight but fits.

All winter with no tender and starts right up.

OK guys, before I throw this f&%"!ng Uni Filter out of the window can someone shed some light on it ?
The rubber outer is the same thickness as the OE but not as soft so when I try to put it all together the air box/snorkel/battery box joint won't fit, when I try harder and give it a good push it just falls out of the groove.

Cheers
Pete

Had the same trouble with mine . The rubber frame kept pushing inside the snorkel housing & leaving air gaps . Ended up going back to the standard paper element .

Brute, mines ok in that department, it's that the rubber is to thick ! Tried again to fit it but the only way I can see is removing 40% of the rubber and I have no idea how to do that so open to ideas.

I had to grind some of that rubber off with a dremel. Good excuse to get a Dremel. Worthwhile though.

2 cans of San Miguel? I would've added a shot of Tres Generaciones as well

Ok, first oil change on my wife's 650... there are two drain plugs on the bottom of the engine.. which one, or both? the center one has the magnetic plug and only drained out about 1/2 pint oil. Don't want to remove the other one till somebody say's yep, do that one too.

BTW, where's the oil filter? The parts guy gave me one that looks like the one on my F800GS... can't find one like that on the 650.

owners manual is useless on oil changes

Full step by step directions are available at F650.com.

The short story: Only pull the magnetic plug. On the right side of the engine, remove the sprocket cover, which allows you to get at and remove all three of the screws holding on the round, roughly 2.5 or 3 inch diameter oil filter cover. Oil will pour out, I use a soda can I've cut to catch the stuff and funnel it away from the engine and into the catch pan.

You also need to remove the left side fairing to drain the oil tank. I generally do this bit first.
