Don't think NB sells the flaps anymore.

I thought I'd post some info I have here... most of the traffic is on the Sertao thread.
If you want to see the difference between the standard OE seat and the OEM Tall seat, here it is... I did this once for the windshields too... I hope this helps.
So is the tall seat more comfortable? I'm guessing they use the same pan and more foam to get the tall. I would like more height, but need more comfort. It only takes about an hour before my natural padding lets me know it is done.
Yeah the Tall is actually way more comfortable.. and doesn't "push" you up against the fake gas tank if you know what I mean. Not as much anyways.
Now I just need to find one without paying an arm and a leg. I don't feel like paying for a Corbin or similar right now. Maybe after another full day of riding I'll feel like forking out some cash.
Just send yours to Seat Concepts for a reshape/rebuild. Very good quality product/company!
Lols. We really can't say it often enough really. The stock seats are so horrible, it ought to be called crushers.
+1 and then some for the Seat concepts!
and my standard seat is for sale if anyone wants one to get modified
I have the Tall seat and after about 100km I suffer from the Latin term soreus arseus. I purchased a fitted sheepskin seat cover from the good wool store in Australia and did an all day ride two weekends ago with out experiencing any of the usual bum ache.

I saw this on ebay wondering if it's awesome of a waste.
What do you guys think??
Here ya go.
I gotta set of moto centric saddlebags to go with the tail bag I previously purchased and quickly realized the stock muffler guards do nothing for luggage. off to the depot I go. after looking at what was available in store I decided to go the modular route instead of breaking out the welder. using a pack a fender washers along with a couple packs of 3/16 nuts and bolts and four rectangular deck ties, is able to extend my oem fender guards preventing the saddlebags from becoming further damaged. after I month, still looking good and I spent less than 5 bucks.
New to the forum and just got my ADV stickers in the mail today.. Yeah! Looking for recommendations to make my 2011 G650 GS a little better off road, tire-wise. I've got the stock Battlewings on it now.
Regular G650GS, so front 19'' and pretty hard to find real knobbies. It all depends on what terrain you're riding in.
For a good compromise, the Heidenau K60 Scout or Mitas E-07 are pretty hard to beat, and easy to find in 100/90 19 or 110/80 19.
If you want something more dirt oriented, have a look at the TKC-80, they are of a lot softer compound, so don't expect more than 4000 miles from the rear (probably less if you're beating them hard), but they are the best you can have in this category. Most expensive dirt tire ever though.
If money is an issue, the Mitas E-09 are very close to the TKC-80 but from a very hard compound, so much better mileage but quite bad on the street, especially when it's wet.
I think you can find some "knobbier" tires in 19'' front but I don't really see the point on a G650GS...
Let's wait for the new Karoo 3 too, it looks a lot like a beefier K60 Scout but I'm not too optimistic about the mileage, so just wait and see.
kildala rear rack extension sent down to here from canada to make the rack a more useable item for carrying and its a great product and the service from there was great
time for a few more rides to use all this gear i think
What is the name of that part that partially goes over the rear tire? It's on some 650's, but not on others. Looks like a horseshoe, probably about 5" thick? Goes around the tire, looks like it attaches on each side to the swing arm. Anyway, I was wondering what it's function was, and whether it's removable w/o any adverse effects (I'm not a fan of the look).
Also, where can I find these "OEM" beak extenders I see in these threads? I've looked online and can't find any of them.
BTW, looking to mod a 2009 G 650 GS.
It's called a possum scraper (there should be an official name, but that's how everybody's calling it)
You can remove it, no problem at all. It's gonna break and fly away if you ride offroad anyway...
Thanks man. Yeah, that thing is going first chance I get. Also, I've found the beak extenders thanks to this thread (following "NB's" el diablo rojo rebuild), really great information on that site.
