In Theory

You'd think a YZ brake upgrade or big brake kit work if you felt the front brakes needed help?

Traditionally MX brakes are some of the most powerful out there. I would also think that you can also upgrade the master cylinder for more power if you want it. I hear that the CRF450R has a very good front master cylinder.

So what the hell is in that spot on a non-abs bike to begin with? That seems like a hell of a hole for nothing if you didnt start with ABS.

Isn't it the preload canister on the Dakar?

yes, but it's pretty easy to move it to where the ABS models canister is mounted

I did the battery relocate to, a couple of years ago. works well!

The axle will go through one fork leg, the spacer (I think) and the hub, then through the other fork leg. Then the 'nut' portion will be screwed on over the axle and into the hole in that second fork leg. The picture with the bits assembled really is how it will sit. I guess there are nuts to bear down on the axle in the fork itself.

I'll be honest: I jumped on the parts when they were available, and simultaneously ran into a few extra expenses, so I haven't purchased my other suspension bits yet. I'm also going to need a rear shock because I'm essentially taking my GS up to Dakar + height. I've got a bit of work and money to put in before I have anything else to show.

Speedo goes to the rear wheel stock doesn't it ?
I've been running an IMO since 2003 so I can't remember.

Think so. there's certainly nothing beyond the ABS sensor and brake line running to my front wheel.

How do you remove the seat?

That's the first try you see in the picture there.
You can see the OEM pully sticking out over the license plate. I just picked it apart and used wire to extend the pully back.

I've since remade it to where it is underneath the mudguard on a fixed bolt. Works GRRRRRRRRRRRREAT eventhough you might get some mud and gravel on the one finger you use to operate it. I'll take some pics tomorrow when it's not rapidly approaching midnight.

Too bad this kit is only for those who absolutely need it and not even close to being affordable for someone who could benefit from it.

That being said, your bike with the TT39 looks amazing and I'm insanely jealous.

I bought my Dakar with an 18" Excel already on the back, but with the stock sprockets. It seems like a common mod to drop a tooth in the front.. for me to get the same result, would I have to drop two or is the different negligible?
