    the SWM "650" are based on the Husky TE630 not the Terra.

    Agree fully. After all the hiccups along the way it still was the best resource for everything-TR !

    BMW G650 (any year) item should fit just fine.

    A huge amount of work went into that site and it's a shame to lose it. Thank you High Five and all the others. I wish there was a way to continue to access all that info.

    Any relays are under the seat next to the battery / ECU. If you are having problems with your turn signals there is no flasher relay. The turn signal indicators are wired to the instrument cluster along with the input from the turn signal switch. Be careful around the instrument cluster and ECU.

    I'm in the process of fabbing up a single exhaust with a universal Supertrapp muffler and thought I'd share. Instead of spending $600+ on a GPR 2-into-1 pipe, I spent $60 at the local exhaust shop where they were able to chop the right side off and grafted some of the piping back onto the left to make it work. I'll post more pics once painted and mounted on the bike in the coming weeks but thought someone might enjoy the pics so far...

    Recently ordered a set of Trax Adventure side cases for my Strada. This morning I received a message telling me it was no longer available. I replied back with the question what exactly isn't available but I've got the nasty feeling the racks are no longer available for the TR :(

    Correct. Haven't been for a while... nor the crash bars and bashplate they used to make for the TR.

    If you mean the SWMotech Quicklock EVO's (like in post #31 in this thread http://www.austouring.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5539&page=7) then maybe I can help with a set in clean and near new condition (just the smallest of "wear marks").
    Same for a set of MoTech crashbars https://bit.ly/3d8FZ6I and B+B bashplate post #25 same thread as above (pre-drilled for a trail stand like this http://www.endurostar.com/ to lift either the rear or front of the bike)
    and loads of other parts + extras shown in that thread as well.

    All stuff comes with all hardware and required bits.
    Also fit the Terra of course.

    More on http://www.cafehusky.com/threads/strada-terra-accessories-and-parts.91753/

    Just shoot me a pm for details.

    It was actually something I checked before I bought the bike. All the big retailers had the SW-Motech bits on their websites and last year I managed to purchase the SW Motech bars through one of them. Bike already came with an SW-Motech bashplate.

    Went through many retailers but no-one seemed to have it in stock still, so I sent a message to a big german retailer with many stores yesterday, to see if they had any lying around somewhere.

    Sending you a PM too!

    dirt in the air box and throttle body. Obviously not easy to do when inspecting a bike but the main issue these bikes have. The least you can do is to take out the air filter and have a look if there's dirt on the clean side. Also take out the oil dipstick and check if there's a lot of light colored goo in there. A bit is normal from condensed water mixing with the oil but too much may mean that the head gasket is leaking. If the bike starts and idles without issues it should be ok regarding electronics. Walk away if you see the EWS error in the dash.

    "Walk away if you see the EWS error in the dash"...... can you explain this thing to me better? do you mean the engine failure warning light?
