Agreed! IMO More oil flow required for the dirt, tad heavier rate springs for the front. Re-valve the rear. At the moment the R1200 feels better off-road and the Terra is absolutely brilliant in the twisties. So I really need to sort it. The safari tank is in the mail, then I might let Pro-Moto suspension have a crack at it. Whitey thinks that even finding a little more travel for the front end maybe possible.

The Xchallenge forks are longer travel and are adjustable, not the same as the Terra, the Terra forks are non adjustable and only have 190mm of travel

It was easer than the Hp2 to sort the front end A.
Auto trans fluid 580mm per leg it works out to be 100mm air gap, and the front end works great and i haven't bottomed it out yet, it is a nice smooth rid on the dirt and bitumen.

Time for me to replace the rear sprocket. Advice please - Do I need the replace the sprocket bolts or are they generally ok to re-use if they're in good shape?

33 thou km's on the Terra now. Still going strong.

I wouldn't have a clue chuffa, but I'd be thinking yes change the bolts.

Any dust in/or airbox issues?

Well done on the milage.

I reused.

Going to add a few teeth on the rear this weekend (old but good DR350 sprocket) - will reuse.

I think there has been a bit of dust getting through. It certainly looked that way during earlier air filter changes. I'm now using the uni filter with a bead of silicone along the top + I've stuffed a piece of foam filter at the top of the intake to try and reduce the flow to the top of the filter. This seems to be working really well. I do check/change the filter pretty often though just in case the silicone wants to detach.

I'm guessing these engines are pretty solid though. I've spent plenty of km eating other's dust. Valves were "spot on" the dealer said when I had them checked at the 23k. Touch wood - the thing hasn't carked it yet.

I've got a bit of a ride lined up & after that I might pull the air box apart & have a look inside.


Cheers Davo, I'll re-use the sprocket bolts too then.

I'm guessing these engines are pretty solid though. I've drowned mine once & spent plenty of km eating other's dust. Valves were "spot on" the dealer said when I had them checked at the 23k. Touch wood - the thing hasn't carked it yet.

Thanks for the info. I'll have another look at my air box when I pick up the bike from Pro-Moto Suspension. Can't wait to see how it rides and handles then.

I will also borrow the BM-AF-Xied unit (lambda sensor spoofer) from my wifes F700gs and give it a trial run in the TR650.
This gizmo does wonders for the 700.

Cheers,

Q

I'm looking for a 3rd party for one of those units to make it worthwhile buying the materials.
Check near the end of the thread, same user name as here.

I had trouble stalling down low.

I got it re mapped using the latest MOSS - real improvement.

I then added the Wooka sensor bypass - very little difference on top of the MOSS.

Sorry Pete, I don't need the "eruption". Damn top idea tho mate. I already have the Wukaking power controller installed on all 3 bikes. Initially seems to help them run better. The BM-AF-Xied isn't a IAT (Air Intake Temp.) device and is now on the R1200GS and has sucessfuly replaced the PowerCommander-V and on the F700GS, wow what a difference. Its job is to spoof the ecu from the lambda sensor into changing AFR's and is simply adjusted just by turning a pot.

Some other developments appear to show that the BMW ecu's actually rely heavily on the lambda sensor which will change/adapt fueling to reach the target AFR. So simply spoofing the air temp does work initially but the ecu soon learns that it is now running too rich and adjusts the fueling map accordingly. I'm not saying the IAT is no good, still happy using them, just the benefits may be less than the first appearances.

So it makes sense to me that adjusting the lambda sensor values is the best way to add some extra fuel with out the ecu trying to adapt out our wanted benefits.
This came up this morning here on another Husky thread more links there, Linky
Also if you try and tell the ecu on a F800GS that it's IAT is -20*C it will regard it as a fault and default to 20*C fueling.
Our bikes could be the same or similar.

I've probably read way too much on this whole subject, I know SFA about it and its a big can of worms. So let the public stoning begin. Just another option and if the BM-AF-Xied works on the Terra I'll let ya all know in a couple of weeks.


Cheers,

Q
