Thanks, sounds like its time to give it a listen and maybe pull the cover.
does anyone have the Fasst Flex bars on their Xchallenge?
what do you think of them? any improvement ?
did you have to buy the special Fasst company approved cycra bark busters or do the standard versions work ?
Much appreciated! I ended up contributing to the tbarstow "definitely saving this for something and not blowing it on a strip club" fund.
Unrelated, I took this as part of a post I was planning on installing the Scheffelmeier bash plate, and is something supposed to go in here? I couldn't find anything on the reprom or maxbmw fiche, but maybe I'm just missing it. Sure seems like there shouldn't be a hole there...
Nothing goes in there. That is the weep hole that will tell you when your water pump seals are starting to fail.
Does anyone run a Mosko Moto or Giant Loop type luggage system? I just ordered the Mosko Moto Reckless 40 and I'm worried about the exhaust being too hot. It comes with a heat shield but, as with the stock heat shields, I think it might still get too hot, especially down towards the base of the muffler. Has anyone encountered an issue with this in the past?
You will need something to keep the rear plastic and the bag off of the exhaust to keep from damaging both items.
Thanks. I didn't think about the rear plastic but I can see that it would be a problem, too. I'll see how the bags fit when they get here and come up with something to keep them off the muffler.
Never had an issue running a Giant Loop Great Basin for ≥20,000 miles on X-Challenges. Just used the heat shield that came with the bag. I know of at least 3 of my Giant Loop customers that are running the same bag on their X-Challenge.
I like them but I also wanted the reduced sweep of the 12 degree bars. I run standard handguards but I use the pivot bar mount from BRP. The special Cyra guards are nice too.
Dude I had the same issue bc in the past I burned like 3 bags, the stock exaust is too hot...,so what I did is put a alu rack.
The ALU rack is H&B for one gs1200, I just did new holes to adapter and this allow me even load this stuff hahahaah
If u need more info just let me know..
I have run the Giant Loop bag with no issues. I now have the Mosko Backcounrty 35's on my bike and like those much better.
Getting rid of some things to make space in my tiny apartment. Thread here. http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/g650x-xchallenge-parts.1084678/
Here's some ideas for how I did my Great Basin on my XCountry: LINKY
Thanks to all for the great info and options. I'm looking forward to receiving my bags to see what works best for me.
thanks for the info.
I'll look around for that brp thingy
can't seem to find this info but are there any non-BMW 17-18" SuMo wheels that are a direct bolt-on to the X-challenge to convert the X-ch to a roadie? Can't find any used wheels and really need something for an upcoming ROAD trip.
Why not just get road tires? And not that I know of offhand.
The 21" is wooobly at high speed and corner handling isn't what I need to hang with these retired guys running GSXRs in WV twisties... Hoping to magically find a set of SuMo wheels... Any ideas?
