Exhaust Question

Does anyone know what the difference is on the exhaust between the 2001/2004 F650's and the 2005 and up F650's?

I found a used aftermarket exhaust off a 05 that I would like for my 02

Thanks

Yes there is a difference!!!! The pipe of a single spark (2001/2004) is smaller in diameter, about 1mm then the pipe of a twinspark.

This is true. You can have the single spark pipe expanded to fit.

I don't know specifically what diameter two sparks are, but I have a supertrapp on my '02 that takes a 1.75" pipe, and a 1.75x0.037" tube slips over my pipe perfectly. I use it as a connector piece. I know there are some two sparks out there with the same muffler. Perhaps that would work as an adapter?

OK, that explains the different part #'s for the different years.

My local exhaust shop should be able to help me with that, or with expanding my existing pipe

Mounted and tested. Result is awesome. May be the best mod for Dakar!
Nope.

It's a good mod no doubt but installing yamaha USD forks has got to be the single best mod for this bike.

I agree but when I think about gain/cost ratio this high fender thing is sort of a must, I think...

Or may be I was too much fed up with the mud.

I ruined two helmet visors last year on a trip through Ontario, thanks to the mud, and the short beak-fender. $50 to replace them.

The Polisport UFX fender I put on the bike after that, $35. And an evening of time to make everything fit properly. No ruining visors anymore.

LED lights.

S0 I am installing one of these on a rallye style dash I'm making.
http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/P...ED-Dash-Lights

My turn signals are already LED plus I have an LED flasher, I will not need a resistor for that. How about the rest of the lights?

Also I plan to run a Vapor with this. Were you guys able to use the BMW Tach wires with it?

You'll need one for the oil pressure/ alternator combo LED.
I have the similar one from TT, but the LEDs are all in one row. There's a gear-shift warning light that I hooked up to the fuel light and haven't had a working fuel light in 9 years Think it just needs a resistor too

Just an FYI for the next time you're riding through Chicago. In fact, i'd suggest modding your Dakar with a Hummer chassis...

This one has a yellowish fuel light. What resistor did you have to use? Is it the same one people used for the turn signals? Cause I have a few of those.
