I would go Supermoto, they offer more space.

I'm tempted to stick w/ 7/8" bars with risers, but I want to explore my options first.
I have Protapers and Maier's hand guards. I also still have the stock heated grips.

How did you do the wire routing and attachment? I remember seeing a picture of someone who had grafted the stock bar ends onto aluminum bars, was that you?

Nope. I saw that too, and it looked interesting. I machined my bars to accept the heated grips. By machined, I mean cut and grinded a small amount at a time until it worked . The tricky side is the throttle side. the relief on the outside has to be big enough to allow for the rolling of the throttle. The whole process took about four beers .

FINALLY, a worthwhile metric for garage work.

Are those budweisers or imports? The metrics have to be consistent, man!

Did you have to do anything to the outer clamps of the handguards to clear the heated grip wires?

I'm full of questions today...

Corona's.

I altered the handlebars to be exactly like the stock ones in set up. But since the Protapers are hollow in the end, unlike stock Dakar bars, I was able to bolt the Maier's (or any other handguards) right up.

No, that was me.

I have Protaper fat bars, stock heated grips, Acerbis Multiplo handguards,
50 mm risers, even the factory bar end weights. The weights are machined
to fit with the Multiplo's.

And the risers push the bars back far enough I have no issues with anything
hitting the windshield at full lock.

Of course this is all with a Yamaha front end.

I've got Renthal Dakar high which are super wide with TT risers. Only just managed to make the electrical wires work, but needed another brake hose.
Stock heated grips rewired. Have a look in this thread for details.

Hey,

I couldn't find a regular f650 thread. Just bought a 07 a couple months ago and need some advice on beefing up the front forks a la Dak'-ah. Cool thread, though. Great dialogue and very nice bikes.


Later and thanks,

Me too! Renthal Enuro High with 35mm TT risers and Acerbis Rally Brush. I didn't need any changes on the elecrtical wires. I only rewired (rewerse) the heated grips and made a longer front brake line. The handguards are contacting a litte bit whit the shield when the bar is turned its endpoint but my shield isn't a stock piece.

NMBMN said the heated grips wires weren't on the good place behind the handguards and he was right. It was damaged at my first fall! :)

So, I had to change the wireing:
