    Hi all,

    I found this topic using google and was surprised to find a bunch of my own pics in it ! :1drink
    I've had my Schalber since 2003 and did several looong offroadtours and a couple of rallies with it in Europe and Africa like:
    Allroadtour in Finland 2004
    Rally di Croatia 2006
    Raid de 'L Amitié 2009
    I have to admit I've realy obused the bike but it has taken all the poundings quite well. It doesn't look as good as it used to :D but hey, its a rally bike, not a showbike..
    It has about (I guess) 50.000 km's on it now and after the last time in Marokko I've decided to give the bike an easy time from now on.
    I'm planning to do a big overhaul to replace all the TT-parts that broke and were welded together again, and refurbish the paintjob. Maybe have it done like the 2000 bike Richard Sainct won the Dakar with.
    Problem is that all my time is now being consumed by my 'new' rallybike (a WR450 with Yamaha France-kit) so the Schalber project will probably take a year or two..

    I've been to Germany to the TT factory last summer and according to them they still have allmost all the parts in stock :1drink

    Any one who can tell me more of this aluminum swing arm? They told me it is for a F650, made by Nico Bakker for Schalber.

    Hey Jeroen,


    Very cool bike, you mentioned that your going to overhaul the bike and fix parts that had broke,
    do you mind letting us know what kind of problems you've had and if there are any suggestions you have to preemptively fix things so they don't break down the road.

    Thanks very much,

    Jakub

    Hi Sparqq,

    I saw your post in the "F650 in a Diet" page, You I think mentioned that the swing arm didn't fit your F650gs?

    I wonder if it's possible that as you mentioned the swing arm was build for Schalber, but perhaps it was for the original
    F650 that Sainct road. That bike very well might a of had a completely revised geometry from the later bikes. If you look at the original photo's though the chain adjusters do look different.

    I'm not sure, what did the seller tell you, did you ask Nico Bakker?

    I won't fit the f650gs indeed. I will send the pictures to Nico Bakker to find out exactly what it is.

    Sparqq,

    My bad looking at your photo I originally thought the shock on your swing arm mounted like the 1st Gen bikes
    ala KTM linkless system

    After looking at your picture I realized that your swing arm is just upside down ( I didn't at first realize the the chain guard mount)

    Did you say that it didn't fit because of the width of the swing arm where it mounts to the frame is too narrow?
    If you look on the first page of this tread the rear mounting of your swing arm doesn't look like any of the bike pictured whether they be Touratech or Schalber built.

    He said in another thread its not wide enough. Could it be missing spacers on the sides?

    Didn't the Schalber race bikes have a special-made frame? If the swing arm was made for Schalber It's not gonna fit on a standard bike.
    But your'e only 30 min drive away from Nico Bakker in Heerhugowaard! Take the swing arm there and ask if they made it.
    The guys there are quite dedicated to the work they make so if they have been involved in a Dakar-winning project, they WILL remember and probably tell you all about it!


    I will get to that soon Jakub, meanwhile keep your eye on the footpeg system and the muffler-clamp..:(:

    The luggage rack is definitly a stock TT part that you can order, i have the same on my bike, I'll try to find out the TT-partnumber for you. It comes complete with screws and rubber distance washers.

    The switch assembly as on the pics of Plukenannabels (former) bike is :
    Left hand side from top down:
    Nav-assistant adjuster flipswitch
    IMO adjust up
    IMO reset
    IMO adjust down
    Roadbook flipswitch

    Righ hand side:
    Killswitch (red)
    Starterswitch (green)
    Indicator switch
    Horn switch (grey)

    Mine has the same setup, except for the nav assistant, I have seperate switches for roadbook forward an reverse.


    By the way if anyone is looking for one, Here's one for sale on ebay!

    Hi,


    I'm about to redo my Dakar. I wanted to get some advice off you guys.

    So far I've added:

    A radiator guard,
    Rear break fluid guard
    Chain Guard
    Bark busters

    I want to add the following:

    Foot pegs, I've heard Pivot Pegz mark 3 are good
    Some new handle bars (I've bent mine), I don't have enough money for new forks but I'm 5'8 so only a few inches higher than stock would be nice, and much tougher.

    Also, I don't have to conform to any emissions standards, I wanted to get some advice about adding a straight through exhaust + silencer (in carbon) and which you would add. I want to keep the noise reasonable though.

    I'd be really grateful for some advice.

    Guys I started Parting out my Dakar. I have 1 item you guys might want. I mad a rally throttle set up out of a Magura 312 and the Touratech throttle cable that is made for the F650/ 312. I also have a HDB on/off and start control to go with it. Let me know if you are interested. Asking 100 for all three parts.
