Nice ... a Dakar thread

As for the check. There are also maintenance vids at f650.com. I just did my 6000 on my own with the help of the vids and the FAQ's

Here is my 07, set up for the cold weather. I have a ermax screen from frog specialties and love it. Stock screen had too much buffeting. Broke a givi with the handguards. In the summer I run with no screen. Spring is here and snow is almost gone ... WooHoo

And where did you get them?
Thanks,

I forgot to tighten the forkbrace once. I would NOT recommend riding without it. The bike becomes pretty weavy in the corners.

Just letting folks know. I wanted to raise my bars a bit but did not want to hassle with brake lines. I picked up a set of 20mm bar risers from Twisted throttle. They do indeed install in 15 minute and require no mods at least on my 03 Dakar w/abs.

Bah, that's a damned lie spread by a few surly KTM riders (they're just jealous). Here's the other side.

Wicked Fugly but light

Why would you do this to your Dakar? I did it because I got tired of muscling the 12 pound baby riding over my front wheel in the dirt. Just buy a "real dirtbike" like many folks say. If you read notmybikemodelname's posts (aka sawzall) he basically eviscerated his bike to the tune of about 50 lbs and counting. Made his bike 150% better in the dirt. If you doubt it, ask some of the people that tried to follow him on the Lytle Creek ride.

The bike he rides ain't never coming back to stock, but this mod can convert back to the "headlight pod" in about 45 min. Not that I'll be doing that very often.

Anyway, It wasn't designed to be pretty (as if a GS 1200 is). This is a work-in-progress, so turn sigs will be on later. Fender is now part of the fairing, and will stay that way when the light pod is on too. Bike has been lightened to about 340 lbs. [IMG][/IMG]
