And, it uses a G650X seat pan that has been finished by Renazco. This seat is half the weight of stock F650
Rob, I'll make you an aluminum swing arm and trade it for one of those. What do you say?

Sounds Good. Is it done yet?

But seriously, I'm down for that if you're serious.

And, I'm a great crash test dummy. Just ask anyone who know me. I can break anything............

BTW, this whole mod resulted in a weight savings of nearly 20 lbs. And the new seat allows for riding the bike like a real dirt bike. I can nearly slide all the way up to the bars on the seat and pinch the seat to whip it around like a small bike.

Yes, serious. I want it to be worth thrashing and it would be slick to have one of those sub frame tanks of yours. But it's barely in the design stages. By spring ideally. The ground is just starting to freeze here. Trying to decide if I want to put studs on my 450's tires and join the local yahoos on the lakes.

Well I'll ride and test mine through the winter and then make a set of complete molds for Scrimping. It's super trick, bolts right up and the fuel pump drops right in. You'll need to run a small battery like a Sycl and also a racing K&N filter without the intake snorkel. This mod really simplifies the bike too it's bare essentials.

These changes result in another 7-8lbs in weight savings.

Got the Sycl already There is an airbox mod involved as well, right? Or do you just clamp the K&N right onto the intake?

A small mounting tube about two inches long and the filter mounts straight to that.

It should carry two people, but I never go two up anyways.

If that's the worst you've heard about me, I feel pretty good.

And............It's drinking, crashing, drinking.....

i've a standard '06 GS and looking to improve it on these learning threads :) so, 2 questions:

1. will NGK Iridium spark plug make any difference from the standard ones (NGK D8EA) - any experience on those?

2. also on the oil filter any difference on K&N vs generic one?


thanks!

btw, tks to notmybikemodelname for the tip on Syclbatt i've read on another thread - impressive stuff!

No you won't save any weight with these items

On a single spark yes they do help with some of the surging issues. On a 2 spark no. They will last longer but I don't think you would see any gains from it. I use to use those plugs in my wr400 and wr450. I didn't see any gains but I felt the bike ran better at higher altitudes. Since you have FI that's not an issue.
