I regularly buy stuff from them even though I'm in New Zealand. Great company.

The dimensions are;

outer diameter 18mm
inner diameter 10mm
Had the exact same problem

order part number - 33 53 7 650 099

Item 3 below. It is 2mm longer. It is hardened but can be turned in a lathe. Just removed 2mm from the length. Perfect

Just put my 03 Dakar up for sale in the flea market. Not commuting 100 miles a day anymore so it's just getting dusty.

Your link won't load.

Dunno what's wrong, but all I did was cut off the bulb and hook up the LEDs. Didn't touch any wires south of the dash, so they are still running through whatever the German enginner decided they should run through.

Still planning on rebuilding the dash again I will try to inspect all wires more closely then, since I have had a few shorts over the years and battery acid has eaten away at all the protective wire-sheaths on the RHS of the bike

So far it's only been mine that I've worked on, but it won't stay like that. The abs is the other issue. I tried deactivating it to measure the voltage in the warning light circuit through both plugs, but there was nothing. Mrs wasn't amused.

Is Soloyosh still around? Old postings suggest he solved it but I havent heard anything recently.
Bah.... still have an ODO right ?!

In Oz I used 350km "safe range" on a tank. Knew I had a bit to go on still, but we had some bad gas a few places up north and down the west coast so milage dropped (the other carb'd bikes had to drain water from their carbs daily). Back here where the fuel is fuel and not water I consistantly get 25km/ ltr so 435,5km from 17,3 ltrs, but I usually try to get it refuelled at around 380kms (this is commuting on highway with T63 knobbies at 103 km/h or 88km/h average to and fro work every).

Btw, both my TT IMO copmuter and my Garmin Zumo660 has fuel odometres so that helps

I have question about progressive fork springs. Planning to buy, but dont know which ones. HyperPros or Wirth from Touratech, or something else?

Tell me something about these springs, and help me choose.

My new love
I ran the Wirth ones for many years and was very happy with them. They had no problem coping with 26.000 very hard kilometres with a heavy camping gear laden bike and a careless rider around Australia on anything from slick asfalt to extreme offroad.

1. Not sure if I asked before, but what's the make and model (and link to it) of that new headlight of yours ?
2. I don't get putting on a smaller front wheel and throwing it offroad... shouldn't make it better on the trails than the 21" was

hi, the headlight is a polisport halo with the h4 halogen bulb. i got it off ebay. on the front wheel i rode supermoto for over 10 years and love the 17s but i still go offroad too so i thought i would try a smaller front knobby for both on and offroad i like the 19 inch idea but i wanted to run a 18 since there are more combos and cheaper prices than the 19. i ran a 17 front with dualsport tires and liked it too so now the 18s are getting a try. i have a rear wheel build im waiting for parts to arrive soon but dont want to say what it is till i get it built. its why i went with the 18 inch front too.

Just got a stock '05 Dakar with 10k miles on it. What are the first five things you would do to it? Tires are newer Tourance metzlers.

  1. Fill it with gas.
  2. Ride it.
  3. Crash it.
  4. Look it over and fix anything important that is broken.
  5. Ride it more.
(Hopefully refilling it with gas would be make #3, but i tend to be a realist...;-)
