They fit. I had to grind the face that hits the bracket so they weren't tilted up when installed on the TT set-up. The pivotpegz owner was very responsive by email. Couple minutes on a belt sander did just fine. Not quite as big as Fastways but they allow for various boots more readily 'cause they pivot. Got pics somewhere...

Before you sell yours to WU7X please test and see if they'll fit. Pics are always welcome too

Pivotpegz pic please

I just bought a set of pivot pegz for my '02. And they are already in the mail, tnx Brian! Can I see a pic of them on someone else's bike please?

Thanks!

Sorry, I'm on the road away from my pics and not on that bike. If you have stock brackets they will go right on.

I have the stock gearing on the bike (16/47), if I replace just the rear with a 49 will I have to replace the chain (which is almost new)?

There is a chance you wont. Best just swap the front for a 15 tooth sprocket.

Just got a Scorpion battery for the bike - any tricks on battery replacement for the Dakar? I know this one should go right in but anything else as far as the on board computer, etc?

Nothing to it. With the sealed battery it's even easier than usual because you don't need to deal with that fiddly acid overflow tube.

I do recommend some kind of electrical contact grease when putting the new bits together.

This probably just happened because I was desperate enough to try installation with gloves on when it was below freezing, but over-torquing the connections can destroy the terminals rather easily, leaving you with a $60 paperweight.

I read that, just after connecting a new battery, you are supposed to open the throttle up all of the way 2 or 3 times before starting it the first time, to let the computer map out the range of travel.

That's what I heard - do you do it before you even put the key in or turn on the bike before you start it and hit the throttle several times?

Nope. Turn the bike on, put bike in neutral, turn on kill switch (pump should run under the seat, and temp light blinks). Then open and close the throttle fully 2-3 times. Hand off the throttle, hit starter.

Thanks for the info - you guys have really helped me out (sorry if some of my questions are repeats from other posts)!

Hadn't heard about being in neutral and hitting the kill switch, what difference would those make?

Finally she's at home


I'm like a newbie on this bike.
It's so light and nimble compared with my AT that almost I need to learn to drive again

Tomorrow I'll go to ask about the Motech racks, to check if they're available before I part on holidays. If not I will need to look for another solution to carry my luggage.

How do you go with using the tracks as a guide without using the turn by turn option?
No. One of the Zumo 660 features is a fartodometer that automatically transmits the data to fellow 660's within 500 yards. It's very entertaining



Yes, "fart" means speed or velocity
in yesteryears the signs for a speed bump was "farts dump", they've changed it to "speed dampeners" now - "farts dempere"

The Zumo has one trip odo. I reset it when I go on trips.....it also has a fuel odo.

BUT, seen in the background in the picture is the IMO 100R300 computer from Touratech (which is NOT a big rip off) and that has these different odometers

- Roadbook, for roadbook navigation, resets when pressed
- Trip, total time and milage and seperated ridden and breaktime with averages on both. Resets when you press reset
- Day odo, resets every midnight. Same data as above.
- Tour/ long distance (multiday), total resets when pressed, but day resets at midnight (I use it to see how far I've ridden each season)
- Countdown distance, starts at whatever distance you tell it and counts down with km/ miles and time to arrival. Could be used to set service intervals I suppose..... hmm.... actually a good idea
- Fuel, distance since reset. Resets when you enter volume filled. Gives you mpg previous tank.

The other pages on it are

- Main page: Speedo, tacho, date, time and total odometer
- Oil temp + voltmeter
- Air temp + max and min with date and time
- Max speed, date and time (quickly reset with push of button.....)


Or as the catalogue puts it:

Road Book Function Only reachable directly from computer keypad
Total Distance and Partial Distance Calculations
Date and Time
1. Basic Function
-Speed and RPM
-Total number of Kilometers
-Date and Time
2. Short Distance
-Short Distance Counter
-Average Speed
-Drive Time and Break times
3. Daily Distance (km)
-Daily distance counter
-Average Speed
-Drive time and break times
4. Long Distance
-Long Distance Counter (able to reset)
-Number of Drive Day and Total number of days driven
-Kilometers drive each day
5. Destination Distance
-Distance to Destination
-Drive Time / Arrival Time
6. Fuel Tank Distance
-Distance since last refueling
-Fuel Consumption, calculated
7. Acceleration
-Acceleration times
8. Maximum Speed
-With Date and Time
9. Stop Watch
10. Outside Temperature
-Outside temperature with records of minimum and maximum temps
11. Engine Specifications
-Engine Temperature / Battery Life
-Programmed Warning Temperature


As far as the track without using turn by turn option....hmm ? Don't quite understand the question there buddy.

In the picture you've quoted I was just using it as a map. I think it always gives you the turns when using routes

I can import my track to Mapsource after a trip, but I'm not sure what you mean by using the tracks as a guide.
