ren-jr.

Been riding my mates KLR this past week, also secretly been thinking of ways to make it look DAKAR-ish .... It shouldn't be difficult at all! The mounts are already on the front stem so it'll be a helluva lot easier to build something that fits.... sounds like a great project!!!......Mmmmmm gettin ideas now!

wiring

Howzat

Does anyone perhaps have a pdf copy of the wiring diagram for the DR650?
Got a bit of a problem, when i switch the left side indicator on, the indicator itself doesn't flash but the instrument pannels indicator light flashes.
When the right side is switched, the indicator flashes but the instrument pannels light doesn't!
Anyone had this problem?
Note that the two front indicators are disconnected though!
Shit!!!

Thanks! With the nice finish work, let's see a side shot in the daylight, a cockpit view from the riders vantage and a close up of how the fairing / gas tank joint looks.

I'm looking forward to a RR or updates on how it handles and holds up.

Awesomeness!!

Howzat all.

Took the beast for a ride in the rough stuff yesterday, looks like it's gonna work! It has a bit of flex, so when in in higher gear at low speed the fairing does bounce a bit, but nothing drastic and it also doesn't make ANY rattling noise!
Sometime this week I need to Organise a new rear tekkie (Michelin T63) If I can find one round here and then source some new blinkers, so its down to the nitty gritty little things.
I took a few pics in daylight yesterday. The results..........

Hi stevho

Yes, been phoning around today to try find Michelin T63's, Bloody impossible to find them here in Pretoria. Then I had a look at Maxxis M6006's but I'm not turned on by the tread pattern enough to buy them. BUT then I saw the D606's... must say... pretty sexy! What are the prices like on them?
I need tyres real soon as I'm busy planning this trip to pomfret.
Will these tyres do what they need to do on tar as well?

Cheers Dyl

The D606 is a great tire. Its more offroad orrientated and you should do about 5000km on the front

the 6006 is a crappy tire. if it rains you are screwed!

rear d606 should give about 3-4000 if nursed.

they are about 700 each.


The Heidenau k79 looks promising at R650
