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 ...

Original header


New Ti header


Going on the new bike


Added the axle sliders


And peg sliders


Exhaust system includes nice carbon heat shields


Ready for the first ride




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).

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... , 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 ...

Wow...thought I was the only one who actually bought one of these!

I have done some serious offroading and touring on mine. Over 6000 miles in 5 months.

MODS:

Leo Vince X3
UniFilter
Inner airbox cover removed(way better throttle response)
Bunch of Cortech luggage
Autocom
Bmw Luggage rack
Do-it-yourself fender reduction

I've ran the Pirelli Syncs and was unimpressed; low mileage, only 10% better than Diablo's offroad.

I just put a Pirelli MT60RS Corsa on the front and WOW...totally changed the character of the bike. I LOVE IT. I am at least 50-65% faster offroad and the street performance is just as good as the Diablo's, if not better. Can't wait to put one on the rear. (Also, the wet performance of the MT60RS is wild!)

You can spot me and my XMOTO a couple times in this video:

Running Pirelli MT60's F/R now...great tire, wears pretty fast but the off-road grip in dry conditions is great. A true 60/40 street/dirt tire.

I swapped on some Challenge bodywork to give it a little more of the supermoto look. The red stickers gotta go for something with some blue in them.

Before



During teardown



After

Could you post a picture of your XMoto with the MT60's ?

Thanks in advance.
