Cobbled together in about 20 minutes using a saw, hammer, vice and drill. Besides being tucked in, another nice point is that it turns with the wheel, unlike the stock headlight.

Shots of my bike from the H@M Wickenburg ride. Not a Dakar, but a 650.





Redid the dash to mount a Zumo and Vector in place of the stock IP. Not happy with the asthetics but it worked great. My little circuit that allows removing the speedo and making the ABS light work right worked flawlessly.

hmm, got a clutch problem now Well it's been there since I went up a tooth on the front, I've since changed back to the stock front sprocket.

In 4th or 5th the clutch slips after releasing the lever, only if I'm hard on the gas tho, if I back off a little it catches then I can nail it with no issues. nailing it in lower gears is fine, no issues.

I'm thinking the clutch springs are tired and need replacing, what do you lot think bike is a 06 with just over 32000 miles on it

Mine was a 2 piece (rear white parts was screwed to front black part). Worked good for making the rear clear the frame.

I see your Dakar and rase you a pair

My new Dakar side by side with the one my wife has owned for a few years.




WP rear shock, touratech foot peck kit is nice too.




Hers, a 2002 that used to have the capatain america paint job, but I swapped out the plastics a while back.




His, 2005 Excel rims, and Yamaha front end install is in the works.








I had this Remus Carbon can in the garage, and what do you know I managed to get it to fit.

The stock mirrors couldn't handle the wind at anything over 30mph, so I found these at Touratech. they weren't that expensive if memmory serves me corectly.

Nice pair of thumps. Black wheels and Remus look good on there. Now for the forks, eh? Have fun

Is the kickstand supposed to have some play in it perpendicular to the hinge action? I've been trying to figure out why mine barely touches the stopper and consequently has been wearing out the rubber pad on it. I can wiggle the end of the stand over an inch and when it is pushed up it fits the stopper in the center, but otherwise sags below. What is confusing to me is that if the joint were bending from weight on the bike, the resulting play seems like it would be up, not down. No sign of any bash damage in the area...
