Foam grips

I also install foam grips for my dakar. Excellent no more blisters after a long ride..
My mistake was not to glue the grips before installing. Btw thanks for the tip about relocating the baatery under the seat. Just done mine today..

thanks Wattner! i love riding the dakar now, i took my 8 year old son on a nice ride to the lake through some sand and dirt trails part of the way and on the way back he said he wanted to go back on the dirt trails on the way home. had a great time going through the soft stuff with no fear of crashing with the fat tires and him on the back.

i saw the pics, nice job! its nice enough to drop weight but when you mount it lower on the bike it makes it so much better!
