    I bought a HYperpro shock absorber and it really is much better than stock. if the spring is correctly adjusted, then the seat height does not change

    Had her maiden DS ride today about 90 miles mixed pavement dirt road and single track. The little burro did well even digging thru deep sugar sand (some of it just didn’t seem like it had a bottom. Keep thinking about what I have read about better tires though and will probably replace the stock tires before too long, all in I am very happy with her.

    Bah, ride them out. I wouldn't worry about replacing them until they're shot. I actually didn't mind them at all on pavement also and had quite a bit of confidence in them.
    After adjusting my suspension a little more since the new tires, I absolutely love them(the Michelins).

    The stock tires do get a little bit fun in rain after a whole lot of rear brake action, but yeah they're fine for a few thousand miles of fun.

    Which hyperpro you bought? They have one, less expensive, without reservoir

    Perfect------------and color matched to boot.
    I now have 3 choices of bags that I have to put on this bike.

    How have owners been wiring their auxiliary lights. My aux power is already taken by heated grips. I'd like to do a relay triggered by a switched circuit with a backup switch to turn it off if needed. Does anyone have a wiring diagram?

    Hi all,
    My rally seems to be burning a bit of oil. It has 3300 miles and since I did the 600 mile oil change I have had to add a total of 0.5l. This is in several small top offs. Runs perfect. Anybody else experience this?

    Edit: found this after pulling off the fairings (see pic). Put another .25l in today after a good ride yesterday. This does not seem like enough to account for oil loss. The inside of the fairings were clean.

    I know that this is not what you requested but I had good experience using a PDM60 for auxiliary lights, GPS, acc. and heating gear on a previous bike. Slightly different approach to your problem but I'd use one again.

    Hey, I slightly bend my handlebar and I'm thinking of buying a protaper one, which one I should choose ?
    I think I gonna use their adapter and try to keep the same position or maybe a bit higher.

    I wanted to keep stock position and went with the protaper windham bend and it suited me fine

    Thanks , will order this one.

    By the way I've found cheap accessory connectors on AliExpress => https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32888866481.html , you will need to crimp them, but it's easy even without the proper tool.

    Involuntarily brushed her hair this morning. Went under crash barriers. No major damage done besides the front mask IMG_2185.JPG IMG_2187.JPG IMG_2186.JPG IMG_2184.JPG

    thanks David. I’ve looked at those but for the life of me can’t see where to fit it anywhere. There doesn’t appear to be any spare room under the seat or tupperware on this bike.

    Thanks

    That’s the funny thing, the screen seems just dirty, but did not break. The headlight is a bummer, though :)
