Hi Sarah! Thanks so much and Happy New Year. I'm sending them to you inbox right now.
Thank you so much. I sent them to Sarah. Your offer is appreciated.
Did everyone see our beloved W was in this months Motorcycle Classics as their choice for the Future Classic article?
Yeah, but I couldn't figure it out either, so I sent a pm to ORexpat. I think the link works, though. That is a beautiful bike.
Sarah, I replied. I can try later today when I'm on my personal computer at home.
Many thanks to you both!
Yeah, but they didn't use any of the cool photos I sent them . . . .
Anybody offhand know the diameter of the front and rear axles in mm?
Many many thanks ORexpat! You da man.
Ive owned a 2000 model for about 11or 12 years now. Bought it with 616 miles, it now has over 38000 on it. Its been ridden hard with our sportbike club, Hard with the cafe racer club, ( been in this mode for a few years now )Ive gone touring two up in the ozarks, Ive ridden on dirt trails & gravel roads many miles too. Its got ace bars, custom bumstop seat, jet kit with airbox mod, stock mufflers opened up, stock suspension with a 20mm preload spacer in the forks & a braided brake line up front. The peg fellers are almost ground completely off. Im 52 & have owned more bikes than i could ever count, The W is without a doubt one of the best all round bikes ive ever owned. It has to be as ive never kept a bike this long. Its pretty safe to say ill never sell it, as a matter of fact a friend of mine who owns a 2001 called the other day & said he was thinking bout selling his, I told him ill buy it as i was going to convert mine into a scrambler with high pipes. Might just have to convert his & leave mine in cafe racer form. I like pissing off my sport bike buddies.
Wow, that is one clean W650. Has it ever been ridden?
Yes - very clean example.
Tips for removing bits of rust from the chrome? Nothing really terrible.
Very fine steel wool, preferably stainless, with some WD40 as lubricant. You can get the stainless wool at a boat supply shop.
Anybody know the diameter of the axles, it's an '01?
2mm larger than the '00
That's all that came up in a search, I'll be out in the garage tinkering on one of the bikes - I'll give mine a measure.
You looking to swap front wheels?
Didn't I sell you something for a XT225 years ago? You following me or am I following you around?
