I'm cross-posting this in both TR650 threads for maximum visibility.

I made contact with TCI about building a tail rack and luggage racks for the TR650. They need a bike for prototyping and fitment in Orange, California. There will be swag for donating the use of your bike. Any volunteers? PM me if interested.

For those that don't know, TCI makes some pretty neat and robust luggage solutions. This could be our ticket to getting rid of that wretched plastic rack.

I called about a windshield. I purchased a TCI windshield for my DR650. Best one out there in my opinion. They said they need a bike to fit one. That was three months ago. I would let them use my bike if I were close. They make good stuff.

My shop is nearing close to completion (2-3 weeks). Half of my broken rack is still on the bike, and the other half still attached to the Roto-pax. Once I get my things in order, and some pending projects taken care of, I will start fabbing up a rack/carrier for the back. If I can come up with a simple enough design and find materials, I might be able to make a few to send out. What are you guys wanting in terms of a rear rack? Post up some pics of other products you think are the best to help me with a design.

Tubes are bulky and weak......how about laser or plasma cut steel?

P.s. have one similar to this on my F800GS, and must say its been the best one ever! And I've tried a lot of them.

Fuel Requirement

Has anyone tried running 92 octane pump fuel in their TR650. I know Husky states it needs 95 octane, but the highest premium fuel available down here is 92.

95 RON (non-US) is about 91 AKI (US)






Just sold my DRZ and am looking to pick up a Terra to replace it

I don't have a plasma cam at my shop or a press to make anything along those lines. I'm wanting to fab up a replacement rack that can handle a fuel container or more and not fracture like the stock one under vibrations. It will most likely be a simple design and make out of tubing or solid bar. We'll see what materials I can find and if I can fab up something that will we be worth my time.

You would probably be able to mount a plate like that though to whatever rack I make.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Booster Plug and Moss

I was wondering, is it better to get the moss done with or without the booster plug installed?

I'm thinking that it may be better to have it installed to get optimum tuning. On the other hand, if the moss tool programs it to be a slug, it would then negate the add in.

Anybody have any info on this?

I will assume....and say "without".

But honestly, I see no need to bother with a MOSS adjustment after installing a Booster, Wuka King, or equal type device. It alone has solved the issues very well.

Congratulations....Megatiker!

Let the fun begin.

The Booster Plug is very good. Also the Wuka King version (less expensive). Much has been said about these parts in this Forum.

I recommend you buy one of them and use it.

Thank you! I was wondering one thing. Installation starts is very simple, but where can I put that probe so big? Which of the bike is the most suitable?
