Guess it would depend on your environment. Cool idea for sure, and nicely done! But, I am afraid a couple miles of single track and it would be laying along the trail somewhere looking like a wadded up piece of paper. A quick release of some sort would really make it sweet, something you could put on for gravel road touring and take off for tight stuff. Nice work either way!

Oh I like that shield. It looks like it protects the headlight too!

Bumping this, hoping for feedback on the Bridgestone ED-04 rear (ED-03 front too, if you've tried one). They look good, and are pretty cheap.

Thank you.

Here's a pic of the bags on my wifes bike. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=816651 , 3rd pic down. She says she can't even tell they're there.

Nice, I think I'll like them!

I assume those are E-12s on the DR650 too.

Here is a pic of my friends KLR pegs

I just used 3/4 square steel for the pegs and a maple beam that attaches to the frame. Aluminum U-channel to hold the pegs at the ends cuz I couldn't find a thicker wall aluminum crosser.

The windscreen has been durable, its got scratches from bush riding but hasn't broken. I read many accounts of windshields breaking on the WR250 forum.

Some close-ups of my pegs



The pegs are 3.75" overall and 13.25" from pivot to pivot.
Notice the wood "puck" on my kickstand. My friemd actually used a real puck when I told him to use one as a joke.

Thank you.
I can only tell you that I have used all kinds of non-DOT MX tires on dual sports over the years and all have performed pretty well. They all stuck much better on the street than I ever imagined. I never had one spit off a knob, although fronts tend to cup, especially if you do a lot of heavy front braking. The only complaint I have is that these non DOT tires are usually incredibly loud. They must do some design work on the DOT ones to keep the racket down. Go ahead and try them; they all wear out so fast it will be gone in no time whether you like it or not

Hey bradrh, anything under the exhaust side bag or does the stock heat shield keep things cool enough?

ED-04 are DOT tires. From the look of them, they appear to be suited both for mud and dry surfaces.

Would love to hear from someone who has run them re: traction, road & trail, and tire life.

For the pics, see p.m., will send my project pics when done.

I was worried at 1st, but it is better than I thought it would be. Just a little warm next to the heat shield. We don't put food on that side. I need to check it after a long climb, but I keep forgetting to do that.

This is all I found. Not much out there on them.
