I'll be interested in how long the led lasts. I had five die on me over a 10 month span on two different bikes (TDM900 and F650GS) and my friend had two die on his FJR. Disappointing because the light output is good and the size is perfect.

Rear Fender...

rmarkr,

What rear fender is this????



Great job on the tail section... I'm about to do something (mine was wrecked and is now a piece off a KTM EXC with tail light, held on by zipties).

Thanks!

LED lights like this get hot. I hope I can keep the light alive by only running the light when the bike is moving. I may even try to find some sort of heat sink.

I wired mine to run only when I went to high beam and being in Japan with lots of traffic I didn't use them very often. But they still died. Once Sanjoh stopped warrantying them (10 months into ownership) I gave up.

Now considering either Rigid Dually D2s or Denali D2s. The former has much more power but the latter would fit better on my beak's light bracket.

still trying different exhaust mufflers on the dakar and now took off the fmf q2 and put on a fmf q4. q4 is quieter than the q2 with the quietcore insert for sure. dont know if it comes stock with the quietcore insert though. just got a powercore 4 spark arrester screen to replace the quietcore spark arrester screen and now the thing sounds mean! not too loud but its got the good ol deep bark i like.

I've got a Remus sitting here that I'm thinking about using the grinder on

Anyone weld the crossover shut and just use the left side?

I'd think it would sound like a staintune but .....

This is how it starts, then ties to stem.

with the 48mm forks mine cant go out side of the forks. At full lock to the left it pushed the cable and pulls the TB open just a hair. I cant seem to fix it.

There should be a plastic clip that attaches the cable to the side of the handlebar, just below the crosspiece.

I think the (piece of) fender is either from a KLR or YZf rear. I just bought an after market fender that looked wide, and with few cut outs.

No build thread, but some more info/pics on the Yamaha forks thread
