Indicator globes are bmw specific so don't expect to find them in the auto parts store (or your Husky only dealer).

BMW part # 63217169203

The bulbs below appear to be suitable too.
Osram 5009
Philips 12093
KTM 6011427000
Aprilia AP8127489
Ducati 390.4.021.1A

Thanks Stuart, I found a demo Terra over in Seaford so it looks like they still exist. As it is, I decided to go with the Sertao instead. With the Bee Emm special 90th anniversary pricing, and the GS experience offer, I couldn't go past it.

Looking forward to many years of Rotax motoring.

anyone fitted the Factory handguards to their bikes? I went with Barkbusters (as I usually do) but I really think they've done a pretty slack job on the design. I had ego's but they weren't gonna fit properly without some bending (thanks btw daveorally) so I swapped em for model specific ones. But the mounting brackets look like they are gonna do some real serious damage to brake lines if they move in a stack.

Coopsdad, I fitted the factory hand guards but replaced them as soon as some barkbusters became available on the flea market. The factory ones seem only useful for deflecting light branches. My barkbusters have taken a couple of good hits (both sides) and have done their job very well. Chalk & cheese as far as strength goes.

I had the Barkbuster's fitted prior to delivery and didn't think much of the inner mounts. Soon found the Bars far to low so fitted some tall bend Renthal fatbars. Have the much better inner mounts for tapered bars now. Just waiting on (seemingly, rare as rocking horse shit, back ordered) longer counter sunk machine screws to fit it all up with BarkB's bar end weights.

Terra fork service

Has any one with a Terra, serviced their front suspension!
The service manual has no service section for the front forks!
I love this bike it ticks all the boxes for me but the forks are a bit stiff, I am thinking of using 5w oil and 100-110 air gap.
It would be good to know if anyone has played around with the forks to get them to work a little softer.

If they are anything like the XChallenge forks then the oil isn't the problem, it is the inability of oil to flow freely and quickly. Holes need drilling, some made larger and some filled in, and better valving. The oil should be around 10 weight.

Are these forks crimped inside like the Xch ones?
