Thanks - ...
Thanks,I can do that if there would be interest. I bought the bike cheap (it's a 97) and wanted to keep it as low cost as I could(less money in farkles,more money for gas and tires ) . I like to tinker so that is one way I kept the actual $$ down. It may give some people ideas, so I can get some info rounded up.

That's smart Bkoz, I found that those 3m adhesives don't keep that screen stuck to the DR's vinyl headlight nacelle. I think they'd stick to a painted surface, but they didn't stay stuck on mine in strong headwinds. I used the 4 nylon nuts/bolts from Laminar & they're mounted solidly now.

Steering damper

Has anyone here custom fitted a steering damper to there DR650 and have any pics or ideas to share. I have a MSC Titan damper which I want to fit under the bars. I have bar risers. The MSC mounting kit costs as much as what i paid for the damper.

When I installed the RMZ forks on my DR I mounted the indicator behind the screen/fairing/cowling with double-sided tape.
Much easier to see now (but I still leave my signals on half the time...)

If I were installing a mini air horn, I'd definitely use a relay. You risk burning up your horn button if you toot it for more than a couple of seconds.

When my crappy OEM horn bit the dust, I swapped it for a cheap Fiamm Freeway Blaster Low Tone. It was pretty much plug and play except a little tweaking of the bracket. Definitely louder, and a deeper pitch.

Hey Mac! I'd also be interested in a build thread. I've always admired your ingenuity and craftsmanship. I'm sure I could get some good ideas from your 650 as I get mine set up, just may not be able to execute them quite as well as you do!

I'm about 6' and with the spacers it puts the air pressure at my chinbar at highway speeds.Kinda cheesy looking but it does the job of keeping the air pressure off my chest. Here are more pics of the screen and the spacers I made to mount it.





The readout is a Cyclemax volt meter HERE (low reading is from engine not on for clearer pic).


ADV8, you are right,I moved the brake line to get a clear pic. It's tucked under my GPS mount.
Thanks for posting the front pics and the details on the FZ1 screen. I was wondering about it myself. I just popped over to Ebay and searched and found one for $25 shipped, so it's on it's way back to Georgia! Thank You! BTW, the seller has sold several at that price, so if anyone is interested he may relist another one soon. You can search for "FZ1 smoke windscreen" like I did or look for the seller psychomotogear.
