just thought I would put mine up
Max Kool what sort of pipes are on your bike? Sebrings?
Flux C. go with the 990 Adventure so I can live vicariously through you! The black one especially.
Hey guys, gotta question for ya... I have a 2003 dakar but suspension sucks. I would like to do a full ohlins suspension set-up. If I machined some custom parts for a front fork set-up would anybody else be interested?
You do the machining yourself? An Ohlins front fork setup runs about $880.
If you're a machinist I'd be interested in talking to you about some decent bar risers....
Me too, for an '03 Dakar (with ABS).
It's the Remus (which is the same as the Sebring??) and it came with the bike. I don't like it. Because it's symmetrical. Even if you lay your bike down quite gently you see it right away. I'd rather have a single sided pipe.
Ya I do some machining. I mostly make Titanium wedding bands but I have all the equipment to make whatever I want. Funny you should bring up handle bar risers cause I was just about to order some from Touratech with the Magura bars. I laid my bike down tonight and the crappy BMW handle bars bent, which I didn't mind cause its a good excuse to finally get the risers and good bars. Anyway, it would be pretty easy to make some handlebar risers. Give me some feedback on what the risers need to be, like height, width, what bars to adapt to, what kind of material and anything you can think of. With a lot of input I can develope some sweet parts which I would love to do. I really would like to develope the ohlins fork setup... $2200 for the WP forks is absolutely insane, and I haven't seen any other company to rival them....
If you want to talk about it real time you can AIM me...
My screen name is, TheTacticalTurd .
Hey if you don't like your remus pipes, i am looking for a set of pipes for my bike....??
Seen where I live?
Phoenician, I am sending you a pm, but I am going to get some measurements for some risers together...maybe you can whip a couple sets up and sell to some folks on here and at the chaingang site.
I am interested in a wedding band, maybe 2....
Sweet, we'll get some nice parts going, this is gonna be fun.... just out of curiosity, are the risers from touratech not that good? whats wrong with them?....
Well since this is a thread for posting beemers I should keep it going and post mine.... mostly stock, nothing special... yet....
Dude, looks like you got some fun tools to play with in that garage! Is that CARPET?
I don't know anything about the Touratech Risers, besides everything with a TT label on it costs too much for my taste. It's always nice to have something original. Also, I am wanting to look into something that might pull the bars closer in to me, to help out my incredibly bad riding posture.
I sent you a PM by the way....
Not to far from home when I lived in Grenoble, France, on my first F650
Somewhere in central South Africa, during the Dustybutt 1000 on a borrowed bike
Utah (on my bike)
Guess where (on a rental bike)...
In the same neighborhood
Portage Bay, AK
Glenn Highway, AK
Mong Kok (Hong Kong) borrowed bike
Mt. Hotham, Australia (borrowed bike)
I shot somebody else's F650GS at xmas, in Fort Collins, CO
Rear-ended by a Saturn car
Here is an AVI of a South African gal explaining where the beer bottle opener is on an F650.
I have more. But I gotta go ride now.
My dream is to be like Flash, making n00bs tremble when they ask stupid questions on F650 and riding around the world on borrowed bikes!
Are you refering to me F=MA? Maybe I do dress it up when I'm bored. What bike do you ride anyway, its probably a Kawasucki KLR..... You know you worship the Dakar!!
p.s. You know the real meaning of your name is Food=Monsterous Ass.... J/K bro...
Finally a decent looking top box! What is it?
My first one:
My present one:
And my wife's:
