Ya so did I. I figure they are going to start telling people now soon on all these RR parts. I was able to get the throttle cable from them though to use with the Magura 312. I think that will be one of my fav mods. NO slop and close to half of the throw.

If I am not mistaken...:

05-310-0362-0 Kick stand mount

05-310-0361-0 (shortened) Kick stand


If one of you guys ever happens to need part numbers from either the Rally or the Oryx Kit, I got a list of (I hope) everything.

I would love to get my paws on one of their Kevlar subframes. Does anyone know if it will fit a stock gs or does it require a special exhaust header?

You would need the Rally Subframe.

I dont have part numbers to order the guard only, however I got part numbers for the engine subframe with the guard:

Oryx Supermoto: 01-301-0201-0 (a bit smaller( and thinner?) guard than the Enduro one)

Oryx Enduro: 01-301-0200-0

You could probably make em fit on the stock one, if you drilled holes in the guard at the right spots/added something the the stock subframe to attach it to, but I dunno for sure (dont have a stock F650 )

But I can tell you that the do fit with the stock manifold (at least the ones with built in tool box, 99% sure that the ones without will fit, too)

oh yeah, I would ditch the subframe too. That is the main goal. Loose that big old boat anchor.

Just to let everyone know if they did know, the backordered Touratech Lower Front Fender is now available from Touratech for the 650 GS, Sertao, and Dakar models.

4 Days on the TAT

I plan on doing a little retrospective RR, but until then, here are some Vids of the first and second Creek Crossings we hit after a day of rain Sunday, May 13, 2012.

We trailered five bikes to Jellico from PA/MD. '97 Funduro, 650Versys, 690KTM Enduro R, DRZ400 and my '01 Dakar. Rode to Helena, AR via the TAT, then rode hard roads back to Jellico. The Natchez Trace Parkway was fun.

The first two major creek crossings, the water was up more than usual from the rain Sunday, which we rode in all day. That rain was actually a welcome change from all of the dust on the gravel the day before. Then we got to the creeks. Man that concrete was slick as ice. And we had a little bit of current to deal with pushing the bikes. Some guys made it look easy, others did not fare so well. Thankfully, no injuries to the man, just minor to the bike. If the water was a few inches higher, well... My mistake was taking it too easy in the first few feet. You really had to be moving to get past the slick stuff.

YouTube Vids: http://www.youtube.com/user/TreadWellism/videos


Not sure how to embed vids here......

im cleaning up my wires and harness on my 02 dakar and was wondering if there is a trick to disable all the safety switches like the clutch and sidestand. on my honda xr i just grounded one wire and it diabled all the switches and i could remove them but not sure on the dakar. i did the sidestand already by cutting and connecting two wires.

im using them and think they are working great! dont know if they are as good as stock but they are steel and on my last bike which was a xr650l and changed the cs sprocket when i changed chains but ran the back sprocket over and over. probably had about 45,000 on the rear and didnt have any wear yet compared to a new one i had on my shelf.the fronts barely had a little wear at around 12,000 when i changed my chains.

Appreciate the info, only concern I had was one review on Amazon mentioned they "grind and make noise at certain speeds."

Did you stick with stock gearing? I mostly ride on road including lots of super slab.

Thanks!
