There are lots of G650X Challenge and Country threads - let's see your G650X Moto!
 
I sold my Challenge and got a new Moto. First order of business was to add the Akrapovic full-Ti system ...

The results? Awesome! Pipe is loud but it is a good loud. Sounds great rolling the throttle through the middle gears. Bike handles well at higher speeds. I need to get a few more heat cycles on the motor so I can ramp her up. This bike is going to rock down in the hills!

Stay tuned, I have a couple plans for the bike including Challenge wheels/tires and maybe some bodywork changes.

That's a really nice exhaust. Whereabouts did you pick it up?

It is 2 BMW part numbers ordered at a BMW dealer. I can provide them if you need (not handy at the moment).

Sure thing...when you get the time let us know.

There was a similar thread to this one about showing the Xmoto, but I can't seem to find it.. it only went to 3 or 4 posts..

I'm afraid to ask what the Akrapovic system cost you.. Does it come with a slip on catalytic converter like the one available for the F800GS?

I asked my dealer for a price on it and it was about $1400 just for the can, and the header was... :scratch, I can't recall..

The header is BMW part number is

71 60 7 711 649

and the muffler is

71 60 7 714 114

This is the "racing use only" system. They were supposed to develop a "homologated" street-legal version but it doesn't exist yet, so I got the loud one. Very nice.

And no, there is not a catalyst included ...

We can't just let this thread die after one post! Here's mine:

Full Remus exhaust, unifilter air filter, airbox lid removed, charcoal canister removed, CRG bar-end mirror, ummm....uhhhh.....more coming.....custom seat, Isotta windscreen....maybe try the Touratech large fuel tank.

Uni filter and airbox mod ... I gotta do that too! I think after a couple more rides I need more incoming air to match the new exhaust. I'm getting a slight stumble just above idle when cold. Hopefully the filter mod will help the cause?

I got a set of Cycra handguards to throw on, will report back with pics when that's done.

Sweet exhaust system you have there! I've seen the full "race" system for $975 but I have to wonder how loud is it, or how loud is loud?

I went with the X-challenge as it's easier to convert back and forth to a motard then the X-moto. Dirt one day, street the next.

Cool wheels, ropedrag, did you get them from Redbull Addict? I almost bought them from him to put on my Challenge but it ended up being cheaper for me to trade the Challenge for the Moto.

I have a set of spoked Challenge wheels I'll throw onto the Moto when I want to go play on gravel roads.

I got 4 sets of used tires with the purchase of the used wheels

But for now the new Moto is a blast to ride! It runs from 85 up to 100 pleasingly quickly and is quite stable at speed. Here's the bike tonight after installing the Cycra handguards and Touratech tankbag.

Footnote to exhaust: this thing is stupid-loud but it makes you grin with each brap of the throttle.

Heh.

ropedrag 11-01-2008 05:48 PM

No I bought the wheels off Jackhole they came from Woodys and seem to be great wheels, I'm quite happy with em. I do need to buy a spare set of rotors, and ABS rings along with an extra rear sprocket though.

What are you're plans for the front fender when you swap out to off road mode?

Not sure what 17" rubber your running but the Avon Distanzas are sweet like candy! Soft and grippy meaning they won't last to long but a cornucopia of grip. The hand guards look good!

Solace 11-02-2008 04:52 PM

Stock tires are Pirelli Diablos. After a 250-mile backroads blast today, I can say they have ample traction on pavement but none on gravel. Distanzias are on the list for when these wear out. I might also try the Avon racing rain tires they make in the 120 and 160 sizes. Many little tread blocks make me wonder if they'll be decent on gravel roads although I'm sure they're as soft as pencil erasers and mileage will be very short. We'll see.

Some action shots
 
It's one thing to show the bike in the garage, here it is out in the wild ...
