    Hi mates, I have recently bought on ebay a full set of Givi side panniers with frames without mounting hardware.
    I can't figure out how to mount the frames, can someone with those show me a picture? I suspect they are slightly bent :baldy

    thanks! :clap:clap:clap

    Don"t over tighten the balancer chain or you will f..k it up ,there are two different methods for adjusting it ,do a bit of reading before adjusting it ,you may want to check out another DR site we use http://www.drbig.info/forum/

    Rob, did you get your 800 crank new or secondhand? I have a secondhand one and have noticed that it is welded. the big end seems to be ok but it would be nice to freshen it up while I can.

    Simon I got mine checked by Resi/ Lars, as I bought it off him :D. do you know how many K,s were on the bike from which it came. only early 750,s were not welded I read from Big Bob info himself.
    Maybe check the side play and if it is in tollerence the big end is probably good. they have a massive bearing in there.

    Aapo, beautiful piece of metal you have there :D

    Is the special head gasket made of single copper sheet?

    Gasket is made by suzuki. Looks identical to original, but different dimension. I'll take picture soon.

    Aapo, according to the part number the gasket is identical to the original one. I guess Suzuki made them only in one size to fit original bore and oversize.
