new to the forum.
just completed the 800xc farkles, now reading the 800 thread.
Im looking for replacement bars for the roadie. the risers don't interest me.
I've adjusted the stock bars a couple different times, and just can't get comfortable. Maybe cause my other bike is an 1198, and I'm use to leaning forward.

I use the ProTaper Contour Pastrana FMX bars. Sweep and rise on this bar made it much better than OEM, for me.

You'll have to shave the plastic nubs on the switches, or, drill holes for them. I just sanded down the plastic, leaving the tiniest bit of a nub and this allows adjustment of the switches on the bar once you have it set the way it feels best.

Has anyone raised the fender on a roadie? I got Metzler Karoo3s installed and it looks like if any rock gets stuck in between the knobs it'll tear my fender to bits.

Looks like in order to do so I'll need a longer brake cable 'hoop.'

Of course the XC's brake cable is a different setup altogether - two 'hoops' vs one. So it looks like I'd have to order the entire front brake line setup, which seems to connect in under the tank.... blah, bigger project than I had hoped.

Nevermind- Looks like I do only need the XC hoop and some brackets. That's doable.

Why bother with loops over the guard. Just get a 2nd line from the master cylinder to the lhs caliper

...because on bikes with ABS, the line doesn't go directly to the master cylinder.

Hola

Just dropping in to say hello. I just sold my 2012 DL650 and picked up a new 2013 800XC. $12.5K OTD for those that are in the market. A touring screen thrown in for good measure. Not too bad and I got the khaki green that I like.

Lovin the triple already!!

Nice, you got a better deal than I did.. Yeah, that triple is awesome. I broke mine in via the instructions on the tank sticker, with the occasional slight over rev. Need to scrub off the cylinder walls you know. Fast, smooth and the flat torque curve is perfect for the loose stuff.

Khaki Green here too, it's the gnarly one.

Yeah, its gnarly as fast as the black ones.

I love the torque of this bike. It is always there when you want it.

No doubt.

A mostly boring video taken by a buddy of mine on an FZ1, but he couldn't keep up with me :). One of my favorite roads...
