So we've all heard/seen the 650 xchallenge...let's see your XCOUNTRY!
 
Both bikes are similar...same engine, frame..etc...yet totally different at the same time...one's mostly for dirt the other one is for 'whatever'...There's so many posts about the xchallenge but none concerning the xcountry. I really love mine and have a blast everytime I get on it, no doubt about it. I want to see pictures of you riding your xcountry, mods you've done, etc...I haven't done much to mine besides a tail tidy, took of the useless canister, got a leo vince exhaust..I'm currently making a luggage rack and a skidplate out of sheet metal at school and will probably have them installed by next week (I hope) so pics of that soon but for now...:

Nice action shots! :thumb

And apparently, of the G650 trio, this X Country is the most popular, yet you don't see much of them here.. :scratch

:lurk

Olas 12-04-2007 10:26 AM

Yeah, what's the deal with that? I know there's a few in here...just trying to round them up..

Mr. Magoo 12-04-2007 10:32 AM

I really like those bikes! I think most are being used as urban transport. :D

Nice pics! With some work the Xcountry would make a sweet touring bike, but I guess it ends up being almost a F650 then:huh

Nice! Is that a bmw windshield? How do you like it? Tell me a little bit about those handguards...

deli-g650 12-05-2007 02:50 AM

it is an airblade universal windshield. i like, but it does fit like a universal wind shield. a little to much gap around th head light.... it creates a small glare from the headlight. i am sure i can make something work to fix that. it was well worth the $60 i paid for it.... http://www.flyncycle.com/acatalog/Super_Fly_Screen.html
sturdy fit, looks good, helps a little with wind...
the handguards are for a KTM that i found NIB on sleaze-bay. $20 .. they also seem to be doing the trick... its been pretty cold and they block alot of wind. keeping my fingers crossed for a TT rack for X-mas.

Doing an Akrapovic and cycra Pro-bends this winter.

Nice Robbie!! You gotta tell us more about the Akrapovic exhaust for the G650, didn't know it was available..

Keep it comin' :lurk

Olas 12-05-2007 07:04 AM

So i got the base cut, bent and mounted for my skid plate and tomorrow i'll be welding the side protection...I'll be posting some pictures tomorrow night....:clap The luggage rack is almost done too...Since I am welding it to the grab bars that come on the xcountry I'm going to have to cut out a piece of the front so that you can still take the seat on/off without having to take off the rack.

How's the seat comfort on those X-Countrys?

RobbieO 12-05-2007 06:29 PM

8 1/2 hours in one day. WAY better than my DRZ!
It's one of the reasons I bought the Country
