OR - any other quick way to disable the ABS for the entire weekend. My switch on top is not connected.

Thanks!
Put a washer or two in between the bolt that holds the front sensor.
This will space out the distance of the sensor to the abs ring. Works for my dakar and 800gs.

KG6BWS, Damian has bitten the bullet with the injector used by the 650X guys to improve their beasts you should be able to pick one up at a good price rather than the BMW one, his post is back on page 699 - post 10482

Re the indicators, it is all straight forward other than the dash lamp, the diode kits out there are the neatest quickest solutions

Damian, where did you pick up that injector in Oz and at what price ?, Nice adaption of the Pegaso wheel, Gravelseeker will be drooling over it

Don Coyote, have added a link to the info I have online in my signature, there is still a lot over at F650.com I dont cover but the FAQ over there needs a clean up and they dont cover the sorts of mods I was doing or we are all doing over here at advrider

Gravel Seeker, have grabbed the info you posted up and will update that pdf later today or tomorrow, it now appears on my updated side stand page

Fwiw...

...I'm sort of rethinking the whole kickstand/lean angle issue. Last Sunday I had a photo assignment for a magazine to shoot a century bicycle ride with around 600 bikes participating. I rode the Dakar and would park on the road shoulder, shoot that section as bikes passed, then go to the next good spot and repeat. I must've stopped fifty times doing this.

I quickly found that the Dakar's side stand was ideal for parking on the sloped shoulder where the ground was higher on my left side than on the right. With a regular side stand I've have spent as much time finding a place to park the bike as I did shooting.

Guess there's an upside to anything.

Seems I've done the theoretically easier, but practically harder route with mine by also picking up a speedo drive to use as a spacer
FYI, the Pegaso hub is identical to the Funduro hub which also has the speedo drive at the front wheel

Just picked my hub up from powder coat yesterday and if I ever get the coating out of the places it wasn't supposed to be, like the screw holes for the brake disc, I'll be happy enough.... who knew you had to mask it yourself....

If anyone can find a 50mm x 25mm x 4mm seal - there would be no lathe work required!

I couldn't find one - doesn't mean that it isn't made - but it will more than likely $$$.

I powercoated my KLX400 frame a few years ago - Must have taken me two days to clean up all the faces and threads. Scotch-brite pads on a die grinder is the best - but don't get the powercoat too hot - it melts.

Or just don't run a seal like I do.

I have a Funduro front hub (becasue I have a Funduro) and YZ forks, I just have a plain spacer between the fork leg and bearing. The wheel bearings are sealed anyway, come to think of it I don't think there is one on the brake side either...

Cheers,
Michael

Michael - I've made the spacers a little different on the brake side. There is a flange to help protect the bearing.

Wayne - The injector was on US eBay. At the time I paid about 75$ plus $20 freight to Australia.
The same bloke now has them for $100 + freight.

If someone finds them cheaper please let me know as I want one for my other Dakar.

The speedometer works off the rear ABS sensor, as long as it is connected and functioning the speedometer will work. That is why you want to disable the front sensor (at your own risk of course).
