TDM 900 video

For the sake of spreading the message Stateside, and with thanks to our Norwegian friend AJ Blizzard for posting it on the Carpe-TDM site, here's a Dutch video of the TDM 900 - admittedly on the smooth and black. Its an early (pre-2004) version btw. For any wheelie/stoppie freaks, view the same version in Turkey (showing that it ain't no.....)

Forgo to say thanks to Doc from Carpe for that second tip.

This question will probably give away my ignorance but, what do you mean by black blinkers? The mount looks black except for the lil' orang'ish dot...

The blinker lenses are smoked black in color, in above pic the orange hue is the reflection of the orange bulb inside.



Team Frikandel Speciaal on www.ebay.de has them in the black smoked and white colors:

i think it would be fun to have spokey wheels if you plan to do off-rds...maybe to project it on the 850 would be good...to do it on my niner,its a pain...luve my bike too much to do all this...maybe if i still have it in 5 yrs time...

this bike has plenty of torque...there's so much room for improvement...maybe like change to WR4 or YZ4 inverted forks...removed all the headfairings and replaced it to WR400 headlight and shroud..replaced to high mount aftermarket exhaust,removed the rear sideboards and fairings for dirtbike fender and sideboards.....taaadaa....you have the Yammie version of the BMW HP2..okie,i'm a little over board...

Dont know how I missed this...
I have an old '92 TDM850. It has 62000km on the clock, though the speedo cable was broken for a while. The electrics seem to have been installed by some Italian students who were in Japan on work experience. The origional rectifier was made of custard. The gearbox is manufactured from high quality swiss chocolate. The handling is erm 'fun'.

...But I love this bike. It is easy to work on, will go almost anywhere you are foolish enough to take it. It does not demand love and attention. I now dont even have to think about short-shifting through 3rd gear as if you gas it in 3rd, it jumps straight back to 2nd. All adds to the character.

Hoping to get my Mk2 gearbox installed before we go touring in Morrocco later this year, but besides that, I have no plans to do anything to the bike, or replace it, it simply does everything I need it to.

Cheers from rainy Spain

Peter

Anybody out there know the make and model of the front forks on a 92 TDM. The factory manual gives all the pertinent info except for who made em.

I know where there's a 1992 TDM here in the States with 20K on the clock. It's overpriced but I have an idea they'd love to move on it. I'm going to give them a call and if I pass, I'll provide the details.

So what's it worth? Looks decent and comes without any farkles other than a Micron pipe.

The prices I have been seeing seem to be in the $2200-2800 range. Unless they have been completely trashed. I would aim for the low end on a stocker.

Already a member, though an infrequent poster. Dont think I've posted since the forum updated. I got my gearbox from Alan, but have not had it off the road for the last year, so its still got the one with no third gear. Its amazingly flexible, as long as you keep it in second upto 5k, it willl pull 4th fine.

Carpe is a great forum for sure Would not have got Avon Azuras otherwise, saved me money, and I reckon they are better in the wet than the old MEZ6 tyres.

My fuel consumption is getting bad. Maybe I should do the emulsion tubes whilst the engine is out for the big stripdown. New rings may also be good for Kyoto I think....

Cheers

Peter
