Is it leaking water or oil ? The water channel is in the front.
Like always, get it fixed sooner rahter than later. Take the head in to get it measured when it's off and skim it if it's not level.

Or don't bother and be plagued by overheating issues for the next few years until you take the head in and get it skimmed Listen to someone's who's been there.

The bikes going to be in bits for a while
Yes, I would

I'd like to get rid of the rear grab handles and associated plastic bits and install a nice rack (and who doesn't love a nice rack :)

Any ideas or links?

ADVMONSTER LED light installed

I finally installed a proper high beam light. This thing is so crazy bright. Much brighter than my Trail Tech MR16 HID.








KNobby tires mounted up, ready for adventure!

One idea - my rack. The side rails serve as grab handles - need them for getting it up on the center stand and out of nasty places. Made of steel rod.

My wife loves me and is very understanding


My Dakar and the blue DRZ are both new to me, loved my old KLX and red F650 but found a couple deals that I could just not pass up.

I fell in love with a 02 blue and white Dakar in 2002 and was ready to buy one from Portland Motorcycle when the asshat salesman pissed me off, so I walked................then found my red F650 a week later for a good price and bought it. So now 10 years later I have the bike that I really wanted



I need to get better pics of it.

And although my red F650 was a good bike, I've really needed a Dakar all a long

almost as bright as my baja designs 8" race light with a Bosch 35w HID bulb, this one's a spot light though and cost about $300, the ADVmonser LED is a perfect high beam and for $120

Very nice setup on the rack and the exhaust.

Is there a link to your build anywhere?
