    The shield does have a function: it prevent to burn the straps of my Giant Loop saddlebag.

    I add a second clamp as the OTR system is in the end of the exhaust. Two look stronger.

    Yes my dealer put the sharder springs he can find.

    No I didn't check the rear suspension from OTR, I am too busy this days :cry

    steel gets hot pretty fast, i can hardly imagine it has any heat shield capability :-O

    im getting done, I have checked OTR about rear suspension, but these days they can hardly answer easy installation and delivery questions. Thorsten from then states actually ohlisn is having 15-20mm less travel than stock shock. But that makes zero sense bcs spring is 5 cm longer on ohlins. :evil god knows
    they forgot to setup my front fork as well so travel is random 26-31.5, lets guess.

    My build is almost finish, see :)

    I know but because the shield is a bit separate from the pipe it reduce the temperature enough to not to burn the strapes.

    I don't understand the shock thing... :huh

    Your bike looks great!!... except the seat.. :hide
    I hate the two levels in it

    Yes, they are the OEM luggage racks, no problem to be removed (just two bolts)

    This is the weigh aprox.

    - 199,8 kg full
    - 181,6 kg empty

    Here it is how I did it: http://traildreamer.com/en/peso-de-la-tenere-660-traildreamer/

    Jaume, where did you get your decals/stickers done? Do these folks take custom orders?

    Thank you! I've emailed Alex.

    I've been trying to find that video you had when Uniracing was placing the adhesives on your bike, but I've been unable to find it. Do you know where I can find it?

    I am really impressed by the looks of the front "Rally type" fairing on the white tenere shown in your photos
    Is this for sale?

    Jaume,

    Great transformation u got there!
    What kind of rear sprocket are u using, it looks cool?
    I see u are now using a 320mm wave disc in front, did u make the adapter to fit the caliper yourself and what kind of disc & caliper are they?
    I currently run original hubs with exel rims front & rear but am considering going fot the Talon hub & single disk in front.
    Rear would be great to as it will drop the bullshit oem cush drive.

    Regards,

    Ronald

    Hi!

    Sprocket: http://traildreamer.com/nueva-corona-para-la-rueda-de-trasera-de-18/

    The adapter come from a super motard kit. I bought it in here: http://supermotardkit.es/

    The caliper is a Braking. With the 320 disc it works great even in tarmac.

    Yes the rear oem cush drive needs too much maintenance... and the Talon is gorgeous :wink:

    Cheers!
