Someone mentioned earlier in this thread that there will be major problems with the steering angle, fork changes into a "enduro fork" on a modern wide road frame ....

And sure enough, now it was just a day's work with welding and cutting machine for me while someone else might intimidated by the mere thought. We are all different also maybe I can encourage someone to dare to do the same.

I chose to do the work without makeup .... plastic, or other fill products. And to reinforce the frame header in the existing frame tubes with 2 x square section tube on each side.


So here it was, and today it is the turning radius is very good .... I just did not have to cut the upper frame tubes, but they are completely original except I moved the rear bracket of "tower position" 20 mm

Have a nice day GB

Simple, smart and very cheap

Many expensive 'good to have stuff "we can buy for our dear bikes ..... And I myself like to buy these things .... In some cases, we / I need to buy more expensive things because the first was not good ... As eg in the case of foot pegs and its relegation.

Here is a great inexpensive way to test their way to a good personal level.
Foot pegs that move slightly backward.


I just use a regular 10mm bolt and hanging foot peg in it, usually I put a piece of pipe between the upper and lower bracket, here in the picture so it removed for you to see properly

I recommend no one to run with this forever! But only to test out the right level!

I myself have been using this "thinking" and driven more than 10000 km without any problems, but that's me

For me, I like to hang on the rear fender, remove All authority from the front wheel, (not just hang in the rear fender, but also hang in the throttle grip :) so that the foot pegs will little further back is just a bonus!

So, the pegs are Honda Originals? Have you considered any after marked pegs in stead? F.e. Touratech, SW Motech, etc?

Super Offroad

After some tough tests so finally!

With a few updates:

New springs springs to fork Öhlins BMW F 800 GS 12:55 NM
Thicker fork oil 0:05 to 0:15
new Gel battery

Drove about 250 km gravel yesterday .... amazing 370 km in total and she works superbly on any surface: gravel trails, tractor and timber roads, trails and easy enduro (wet grass was a bit so-so but it went oxså :)

We were a Honda XR 650, a KTM 690 R Super Enduro and what shall I say more than that we are so clearly different .... we run and just because someone has a nice bike that does not mean that they can vrkan or want to run fast ... Of course.

But no one yesterday had so much as a chance to hang on ...... The Honda was clearly the fastest after XLR 1000 Super Offroad.
Filmed a little but it is so very "shaky" not good.

Lets just say .... Yess what a fantastic bike, incredibly stable, fast, and does a great security for each difficulty.

Whaaooo .... I've been very lucky with all the parts and with the construction of course, do not think otherwise ......
But now it is a wonderful bike that will make life difficult for many who run the established bike brands :) Really tough.

Congrats with the bike... But what brought you back on a Carbudero? After having owned 2 Carbudero's and 2 fuel injected ones, there is no hair on my head thinking of going back to an carburettor fuelled version... ;)

I found an 08 Varadero with 19000 kms on it and he is asking $9500.00 Cdn. This is what is on the bike. I have heard mixed reviews about the Varadero so thought I would ask for some opinions. I have read quite a few of the posts here but there are alot and I can't read them all. Good deal or no?

handguard,
foot peg with grip,
12 volt socket,
