Maybe we rename the bike instead? 650 is a bad name for a bike with 798cc anyway..

call it the 798 GS Adventure.

anyway, my question. What is the total cost of the conversion... not including paint.

cheers,
Mark

looks awesome by the way.

That's what I was going to segue into for a name. If I find some good stickers to say 798 I'll put them on since I'd still feel weird putting on F800 stickers..

For me, two used panels were 310 (plus shipping) and then random parts about 50-75. Paint done by a graphics design shop a friend works at for a 24 pack of beer The second panel is still in transit and I'm not sure if I'm going to assemble them right away. It all really depends on your panel source, if you get someone who crashed their bike and has salvageable panels, someone who purchased the TT extended tank and therefore can sell their panels, or if you buy them brand new (which would then cost about 850 with no discount).

I was thinking of designing an F 798 GS adventure sticker (i'm a graphic designer)... I did this 798 a while back but never made a sticker out of it. If there's enough interest I'll produce them and sell em cheapo.

Marky, I'd go for the f798gs with the same font as the original. I'm in if you make nice stuff.

I'd go with either font. You make em, I'll buy 'em. Possible to get them in reflective vinyl or just normal? Naturally I *prefer* reflective, but I'd take them either way.

I'll start working on a design :)

and, I think I'd go reflective for sure. A white version and a black version.

sounds great! I think I'd prefer to put it above the snorkel or perhaps the side of the nose. But either way I'm a sticker whore and I'm in

XLV , can you take a few pics of where the air duct if attached? I did not take my panels off yet but just by eye I don't think the air duct will fit with my crash bars. I've got the H&B crash bars . Does the bottom/center screw of the air duct attach to the bottom of rad? Thanks for the help!

I can't imagine it not fitting since the two bikes share identical geometry, so where the crash bars line up on the one is the same place they line up on the other, but I can't speak for any certainty since you have the parts sitting in front of you..
