HEY STEVE! Couldn't stay away from the TDM forum, huh?
I was wondering about the tubes... 35,000 miles and no carb issues? I just did the steering head bearings, carb sync, front SS brake lines, radar detector, and a few other things. I've since added a few more bikes to the fleet -- CBX, Duc 900SS. Your TDM is still the best, even after test riding a "new" F800GS.



Take care, buddy.

Replacing the original exhaust by akrapovic carbon.

Very nice the carbon/ black/ Lava red colours scheme goes together well.
I have not long fitted a carbon fibre fender extender to my black TDM 900 & have been thinking of covering the dash panel & the side pods in the 3M carbon vinyl.
How do you like the Topsellerie seat compared to the stock seat.

Can I ask where you got the faring extensions also a part number if you have it. Thanks.

The seat is brand Bagster

All carbon parts are from this website:

Kev,
All I can say is "are you sick of it yet?" If so, let's make a deal.
I have spent the whole day learning about TDMs, because I think I need to replace my Blackbird.
Yours looks in great condition , and the colour scheme is fantastic.
Wish I'd seen it first.
Good luck with it.

850 bar clamps

Has anyone used different handlebar clamps will less sweep and rise, or at least less sweep aft? Aftermarket or from some other bike?

I used rox risers on my tdm , with fat bars . Work well as clamps raise the bars as well as bring them back to you.

No1 roteax fat bars are wider and flater. the adapter will lift the bar but the ends are still lower than original. N1 is a straiter bar as well so you will get a forward position at the grips. The draw back is they are low and will not leave any space for barkbusters or similar. Anr the pipe out of your brake master may hit the farind/dash surround lock to lock.

hi dziura welcome to the site, that looks like you had a fairly cold ride-out.
I don't think I have ever had a ride-out with such a variety of vehicles except perhaps on one of the massive charity rides.
Must have been a challenge all keeping together especially in the ice & snow.

Yeah, it was a challenge, especially, when the road looked like this:
