This makes me happy. This is with it on the centerstand. The oil level is just above the center of the viewing port ...

If I did that, it would be a F800GS.

Why don't you weld some steel strapping around the outside of the footpegs pegs, serrate it, paint them, & call them done? Got to be better then slippery rubber or bare metal with no grip...

That's next. I have an idea around those ... however I'm also going to use the same frame mounts and put the pegs back and down a couple of inches. PS - The pegs themselves are aluminum!

Did you know that a 2005-2008 Midpipe from a Kawasaki ZX-10R fits perfectly on the collector output of a monolever airhead? (See, carrying around a caliper does help!)

PS - She's REALLY quiet now ...

I am > < close to pulling the trigger and doing this to my RT (now R80S).

The pic above and this:



Rocket-Garage R80

May just be the tipping point......


Anyone want to buy all the R90S stuff off my BMW and a cool little cafe seat and subframe?

Those are DR650 forks with the stop triple clamps. I don't see dents in his tank either. I wonder if he shifted the tank back a bit? In any case, I have some DR forks that I'd trade for beer if you want them.

FYI - If you are using the stock triples with your DRZ400 or DR650 forks, your problem is not the tank, it's the frame. The lower triple hits the frame before the top hits the tank. Just sayin.
