new Baghira owner

I just purchased a 2003 Baghira. I'm pretty stoked about it. I've been riding a 1983 Yamaha XT550 for the last year and had been looking for a bigger thumper to do daily duty. I never could get the XT carburetion right and at 5000 RPMs it would almost always mis-step- causing the bike to lurch and sputter- sometimes leaving me heading into oncoming traffic a few feet behind where I'd planned to be- NOT a good feeling. I think I'll keep the XT for more off-road centric adventures, but I'm really happy to step into the 21st century and have something a bit more refined.

Did you buy that one from Chad R.? It sure looks familiar.

I went to look at it, and had completely sold myself on buying it right up until the moment I sat on it. Somehow, it wound up being even *taller* than my KLR, but the pegs were significantly higher than those on the KLR, so it had the double whammy of being tall and heavy (and therefore hard to manage on my tiptoes, while the KLR with a full tank is me on the balls of my feet, and easily managed), and feeling cramped to ride, all at the same time.

It's still vurreh sexy, though.

Yeah, I did. It was JUST short enough for me. I'm 5'9, but have pretty long legs- thank god, cause its a sweet bike. The pegs do sit high, but man, when you're leaning into the turns it feels just right. I can't imagine big chad sitting on that thing for very long though.

I have an XT550 and this bike is taller, but much more stable - even on gravel roads (and even with the Dunlop road tires on there). It's not going anywhere near real trail though until I get some other tires on it and a skid plate.

gearing

Did you ride it when you looked at it? The gearing was all f'ed up. The owner previous to Chad had changed it from the stock 15/43 to a 16/38 and it just felt horrible. I took it out on I-70 when I was test riding it and at 83 MPH the bike was in the bottom half of 4th gear....WTF. Then last week, before I changed the gearing back, I was in 2nd doing 75 MPH after passing someone. I really have no idea what the guy was thinking when he did that. The engine isn't big enough to pull in 5th with that gearing and it actually was so strung out that there was no real overlap between first and second gear and you had to have the clutch in until you were doing almost 20. It feels SO much better now.

Some great looking Baghira's on this post.... I just bought an 02 with 3400 miles on it.. Love it so far.. Maybe someone can give some input on setting it up to my needs. I saw where jonathon had a seat cover that looked great. Anyone knows who made it??? Any engine guards still available? What air filter does it use ? Suspension settins ?? Can I still get a lower seat? Any specific maintenance to the Baghari that I should pay attention to. I've been riding dirtbikes for years and have setup many ktm wp shocks. Any input on static and weighted sag settings for a 165lb rider. I have no experience with the marzocci fork. I would like to change the fork oil in it.. Any guidence on fork oil weight and where to start with the clicker settings for a 165lb rider????

lottsa questions i know Thanks in advance

baghira

Might want to try hepco-becker.com.au for the luggage rack. I have a m4 exhaust can on my bike and man is it LOUD. I just ordered a baffle for it so maybe I want have to go back with the stock exhaust. Looks great and saves a ton of weight.
