Just the seal/dust cover. You can order OEM KTM parts from bikebandit.com or ktm-parts.com. I ordered them along with a few parts I needed for my 400EXC.

Don't know but it looks great. Are those WP 50mm forks? Some folks over in Airheads are putting those on their G/S and GS's. Would probably translate well for these bikes, too.

6 More of these sets are coming including everything in the pic without bearings and seals. The OEM ones pop out easily using sockets in a vise.
They are $145 plus $7 shipping CONUS. If I have enough demand I will also order bearings and seals, but you can buy them from bikebandit.com directly too. PM if interested. 1 is now spoken for so looks like I have 5.
I will put additional posts for production runs in the Vendors or Flea Market thread sections. Thanks, Jim

Here is the bike bandit OEM section under 2006 F 650 GS / Dakar:


In case I missed something (and its sure I have)....Im doing the YZ/Radman conversion on two bikes. One a '01 Dakar and the other a standard '02 GS. Do I need to replace the shock on the non Dakar even the suspension, or will a link work? It's for my GF's bike and not sure we will make hers a full Dakar w/21" wheel yet...but we do want it raised a bit

I love the uppers fairing but he's got a ways to go there. That's where I get stumped, how to make it blend in properly.

I'll have to PM Bmac650 if he's still around here and see where he got that pic.

I had a grey 640 upper just like that one with lights I wanted to adapt to my SE but sold them.

I think it depends if you shorten the travel of the forks enough. I'd make my desition on whether to keep the front end a little lower or raise the back end a little higher baced on how tall your girlfriend is. I'd be inclined to try to track down a used Dakar rear shock or if money isn't a big deal for her drop the $1K on an Ohlins dakar rear shock. There's no shame is shortening the travel on the Yamaha forks by a couple of inches. 9" of good suspention is better than 10" of travel with crude "rod dampend travel"

Tank Slapper

Have 06 Dakar with Yamaha YZ450 front fork conversion, Ohlin rear, 18" Excel rear with Heidenau tires. Problem with dancing front/shimmy (ie not quite a tank slapper but would be if I didn't slow down) at 75-80 mph and have to slow down for it to stop.

Not a tech guru by any means but did you revalve/respring the forks for the Dakar's much heavier weight?

Had the forks and triple tree sent to Hawk Engineering to make the bolt on kit. They sent the forks to House of Horsepower for the rebuild valves/springs etc... so yes.

I need a favour

Can somebody measure the distance of the exposed chrome fork, indicated by the red line on the picture? I would like the free measurement, ie when the wheel is unsupported. Also please mention if the fork is standard, or has been shortened.

Thanks for your help
