Went for 560 €, TT39 including the seat, Imo, TT Lights upgrade, windshield, cockpit holder.


Talking about expensive
Do you think it's expensive?
Anyways, I will have one of those kits in one way or another...

New? Yes. At least if you could actually live without them (read: if you aren't going to remote locations where you dont get gas every 250-ish kilometers).

Used? Hell no. I mean, let's say you would sell the IMO and the TT lights upgrade, these 2 alone would bring at least 250 € back in, so that set would've been darn cheap.

I got over 6K miles from the rear and the front still looked almost new when I changed the rear for another. Now the newer K60 rear has around 3K on it and the front looks like it'll probably be good until that rear is worn out. So... about 2 rears and one front for 12K miles! When restoring my bike after a 2010 accident last year I had two Woody's Excel rims superlaced on the front and rear hubs and went from the stock 17" rear to an 18" rear, so this could affect wear somewhat compared to stock (tire has larger circumference). I'm running a 140/80-18 rear and a 90/90-21 front.

New K60 on my bike (currently at 82K miles and has seen lots of different tires - these, T63s, TKC80s, Mefos, IRC GP1s and GP110s, D606s and a couple of others). Of everything I've tried these are my favorite...



The Heideneau tires don't look as aggressive as the T63s (which I've run as well) but seem to grip about as well off road to me and the K60s are markedly better on pavement, wet or dry, IMO. The T63 rears I've had on my Dakar lasted about 2,500 miles and the front about twice that, but really cupped up badly in the last 1K miles or so. For me the K60s are a much better value since they go over twice as far with better overall performance. They also cost more - $150 for the rear vs. about $70 for the T63. $85 for the front vs. $70 for the Michelin.

Well forked out the dough and got a set of K60's.
very nice tyres, now to try em in the dirt.

Looking good.
Yellow seems to be a rarity where I live.

My new to me F650GS

Hello!
I purchased this last May and, since then farkled it a bit!
It's a 2001 model year and I got it with only 12700Km and still the original tyres.
List of mods/upgrades I made:
- New set of tyres. Continental ContiEscape;
- Windshield, Dakar tinted;
- Scottoiler;
- Givi side case carrier and Allukoffer 45l side cases;
- Hepco & Becker top case carrier, I already had a black Gobi topcase;
- BMW original handguards;
- Dakar front mudguard extension;
- HID 35W H4 bixenon light conversion;
- Two Hella Micro DE fog lights converted to 35W H3 xenon with medium ballasts;
- Touratech progressive front fork springs and heavier oil (15W); Hyperpro progressive rear shock spring;
- New foldable rear mirrors;
- Touratech GPSmap 60 bracket (I had that for many years);
- New set of turn signals with rubber mounts, they look like the originals except the rubber mount;
- New EXO single exhaust (GPR made);
- Touratech stainless steel long distance footpegs;
- Airhawk seat pad, it came from a KTM 990 I had;
How it looked when I take it home:


The evolution:




And now almost done:


I have made a few hundred Km's on it and it feels good. The new setup suspensions work much better!

Nothing great but out for a couple hour ride today taking advantage of 45 degrees and partly sunny skies. Here's a picture at one of the reservoirs in the area.
