ps over here, talon hub is Ł150 without cushdrive, from memory i think they said Ł257 with one...
Is it big differenc to ride without the cushdrive or is it not to be recomended for other ressons then comfort.
Is the waight differance much betwen cushdrive and without?

When I was finding out about changing for sumo rims I was recomended to keep my cush drives specially when I said I would be mostly on the road.It would not matter so much on dirt but on road no cush is harder on chain,tyre and results in increased wear in total drive assembly especially with big.

With regard to weight saving ive decided to go down a different route with my new exhaust system. I was going to have twin 50mm id "normal" race cans but ... theyre too big and will get in the way when racing. So....






And here is picture of the new mudguard on the front, just need to adapt the bottom fork on the l/h side a little bit and make a couple of brackets to hold the back of it, but otherwise bolt on the wr front end.

Wouldnt know about weight but standard wheel and cush carrier is cast and the Talon is probably machined from billet ,I think the Talon might be lighter by a bit ,,but how much ?

Further to Dannyboy's prob with the power source coil I cannot for the life of me find a wiring diag.
I know some theory from my electronics (way back ) but what does the coil do? It is different to the pick up coil and the alternator ,yes?

Thanks guys ever so helpful.
I am thinking of going for 18" so I can keep my original hub then or is it big different in waight with talon.

I have just spendt two solid work days in the garage preparing the bike for upkoming trips and sinc i have put her on a strickt diet i was playing with the ide and it is easyer to find rear tires for 18".
The only thing against is that my friend will get a Dr 800 as well for the BIG trip and it is good to have the same size for inter changebl tires.

Sorry for the spelling tired and Swedish

Looking good, Vilguy! :)


I am just done (couple of hours and bottles of beer ago) installing Wilbers on DR.
I managed to hook up remote reservoir in way it keeps all under protection and still easily accessible for adjustment. Took some cutting of stock undertrays bits and piece of metal pipe :) No photos yet - all cameras in the house belong to my wife, since she is pro artist and makes photos only one hundred million times better than me :)
I swear bike tail sits higher now. Not sure how it will reflect on handling on supermoto wheels. With stock sized wheels I am sure all be OK ( installed them for a test, since my bike setup to be "2 in one") and geometry looks stock.
But with sumo wheels...God knows. My bike weaved at 140+ kmph a bit before, but I hesitated to crank up rear suspension.
Now I can see stock shock was not set up for me. Wilbers is set up for my weight and bike. Can't wait for snow to melt :)

talon hub weighs bugger all mate, honestly.. hang on ... ill go weigh one!

ive only got a front one to hand, but it weighs about 750 grams. Rear one is only slightly larger to be honest.

I have carried both wheels and id say the talon one is a good 2 .. maybe 3 kilos lighter.

New saddle cover

Do to a new Accerbis tank I have rebuildt the seat and I am going to need a new cover I will put some comfy tempur fome but I was wondering what material to do the cover in.
I have seen Renazco´s seat and he have an option on suede and vinyl.


most Ralley bikes I have seen have full suede but why? Is it to get better grip when standing and holding with the thighs or?

We have Stefan Hessler on this thread now.

Brilliant.

Welcome and thanks for posting. Also, many thanks for maintaining the best place for finding parts for our favorite machines.

Now we all have to restrain ourselves from overwhelming you with questions.
