Those look pretty sweet.

I passed on TT mirrors. They didn't have the ball n socket adjustment.

I ended up getting a single replacement mirror from BMW. $67 tax included!!!

On the bright side TT had a footpeg relocation kit that was a return. I got it it for nearly half price. Going to install it in a few minutes. If it all works out, I don't need the pegs... So if someone is interested in buying them off me, send me a P.M.

Gravel Seeker, yes it was a little like that, I was in the far west at the time and knew the local dealership owner, he had the scooter on the showroom floor and for the first mirror I said hey I like that can I try it on the Dakar ?. We unscrewed it from the scooter and screwed it into the Dakar mount and off I went. Days later I dropped back in and Claude said thought you meant trying it riding round the block, where have you been ?

I just said well I liked it and can I have the other one ? but we will need to cut it off to use the BMW adaptors, so we took the second one cut it up and fitted it.

His wife then kept forgetting to order replacements for the scooter on the showroom floor and write an invoice so for a month or two I was dropping in on my way past to pay them but couldnt cause we did not know how much they were

We have some funny ways of doing things out west as you are probably only too well aware

The old BMW mirrors ended up with Silky for his run across Russia and Europe, the thread is on Advrider somewhere

Claud'e's brother was the mechanic and he and I were banned from the pub for a while because we were busted throwing fire crackers into the men's toilet

Front fender and K60 Scouts

Question for you guys. I recently mounted a 90/90 21 Heid K60 scout on my 2005 (stock) Dakar front (actualy put the Heidy's on front and back, but this question pertains to front).

At the same time I had the forks off to replace the seals.

Noticed when everything is put back together the clearance from tire to low fender is now much reduced. There is still clearance, but not enough. I did not happen to keep the old tire to make a comparison of the OD of the tire.

Is this normal and the Heidy's are bigger around or I'm wondering if I put it back together wrong (although I don't see how I could have done that). The spacers that are in there between the fork brace and fender I believe are 25mm. Do I have to get longer spacers to accommodate the new tire? I was thinking another 1/4 to 1/2 inch would be called for. Anybody else run into this sort of thing?

Thanks

Get High

High front fender is the go - no build up of mud between the wheel and fender!

The 140 fits perfectly on a Dakar.

Not the best pics, but this is a K60 140/80 on my old Dakar




The 130 has the tread pattern of a front wheel IMHO
