We bought the happy trail rack and aluminum panniers for $600. They are fantastic, made in the USA and 1/2 the price of some of the bouteque luggage systems.

Just make some fibreglass copies. Much stronger, lighter and repairable. If you don't know how to glass practise on a bin or other curved object.

Under the bars is definitely better, especially if your running after-market i.e. Touratech hand guards.

i ended up going over the bar with protapers, it had the least bends but it looked cleaner before when it was tucked under the bars though.

FYI... several Dakar parts available cheap...

Click here for my ad in the Flea Market. Scroll down to Page 2 to see photos of the items remaining.

I've got several parts left over after doing the YZ fork conversion and other work on my 03 Dakar last month...

Remaining items need to go to a good home, including:

  • 21" DID front rim and spokes, perfect condition (I'm having black Excel a rim put on the hub)
  • 17" stock BMW rear rim and spokes, excellent condition (I'm going to an 18" black Excel rim on the stock hub)
  • Stock exhaust system, dirty but not too beat up (I put another can on it)
  • ABS modulator and the four rigid brake lines that went to it, all was working when removed (I removed the ABS while it was down)
  • Stock CS sprocket cover (going with a homemade case saver)
  • Dakar front fender and beak (I had to go with a YZ type fender for clearance with the additional travel in the new forks)
  • Stock Dakar handlebars (went with ProTapers)
These items need to be out of my garage! No reasonable offer will be refused.


Thanks!

Pardon my ignorance, but I've only had my Dakar for a short time.

The battery (looks stock but I cannot be sure) has gone tits up.

Is there a direct swap Odyssey batter for this bike? F650.com isn't clear. I believe they cite a battery that is no longer made then make note that another Odyssey might be the replacement, but this requires me to remove some sort of locating tab?

PS:
Can someone point me to the Yamaha fork swap thread or post? I'm very interested. I have a 2002 model.

I can't help with battery size, but I can suggest switching to something lighter like a Shorai (love mine) or a SYCL (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=629665)

Here's the Yamaha Forks thread : http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=399113

Enjoy the F650, great bike!

Just wondering if anyone has interest in one of these front fenders. It's in primer gray and I have the black plastic beak extension for the front. The light has also been upgraded to HID and the wiring is long enough for the ballast to fit in the compartment behind the seat.

I'd like to go back to the 2007 Dakar fender if anyone wants to deal

So, the dak is down for its 36k service and i decided to junk the rear plastics whilst I'm doing it

this is what it looked like before, not bad but that box was pretty high up on the bike.



Then you do this to the rear plastics, remove bits until there's not a lot left.



and this is what it looks like now, work in progress.



i needed a new plate, designed one in cad and had it water cut out of 6000 series ally for 35 / $55, think it needs anodising




And the panniers still fit, which is a bonus



Don't know the weight of whats come off, but it's a lot of stuff, plastic and steel. Left to do are a few spacers to mount the plate to the rear end, after that its drilling holes to mount the top box, figure out where the indicators are going, finish up the wiring of the led tail lights, yup theres two, the top one is there to fill in the gap mostly

Got my rear shock back from Go Race with pre-load and compression adjustability. It had zero nitrogen pressure when it was opened up. All I have to do now is put it back in-
