Thanks for the update. If you dont mind keep us updated on the fix.
Hello to all. So much information on the SWM DS650 here.
I will have to work out how the forum works, because during my epic read I responded to pepalta's question re the 2 into 1 pipe thinking my reply would be on his post and not here.
Anyway great info and great group.
I am looking at getting back to riding (after way to may years) and seriously looking at the SWM DS650.
The 2 into 1 muffler post caught my attention because as it been mentioned, I felt that lhs space would be a great place for storage with minimal weight gain.
Interesting comments about warranty issues, and dealer responses. Some good some bad, but probably on par for service feedback.
I am located in Melb SE so would be good to get together with some of the locals at some stage. Both for riding and to pick your brains once I get some wheels.
I am starting from scratch so will be buying riding gear as well as a bike. Any info on good value gear will be appreciated.
Things seem much more expensive relatively than when I was last on a bike.
Profile pic is from Finke last year, near the tree of knowledge. A friend did his first race and wow was that an eye opener.
Hello, I am interested with this Kouba part (HL1 or HL2), did you have to grind the swingarm to fit the part???? How much did you grind?
Very esasy to do
Grinding about 1/16
No more than 1/8
You mean 1/16 of an inch? This is like 25/16 = 1.5mm. I am from France .... more familiar with mm than inch..
Afirmative,if you take the swingarm of its esasier
Its on the extension that the shock hits the swingarm barely
Thanks that helps
I guess I will dismantle the swingarm
First install the link and lift the bike,see where it hits,mark and grind as required
On my RS500 grinding was not needed
Who knows,you might get lucky
Looking at the Kouba Link site I do not see the SWM listed, are you using one for a Husky? Or something else?
The TE630 there is two models I used the one that lower the bike les I believe 1 1/4 inch
Yes Koubalink HL1 = 1 inch, HL2 = 1.5 inch
This is made for Husky TE610
IMHO I would shave seat first and maybe running a little bit more sag before considering lowering link.
New comfort seat standard on '19+ models is pretty decent, doesn't need much work just round edges and slightly narrow in front. IIRC it's 20mm lower than original and with my 29" inseam it feels as high as 32.5" seat on my XCo. If you are average male with 32" inseam bike is good as is.. just saying
I had already reduced the saddle thickness, i have saved sometghing like 2 Cm, not enough for my short legs - I think I need to save another 3 cm to be good.... this bike is made for tall guys....
Impressive ! Where are you from? How did you transport the bike from where you live?
Nice. Do you have a rock under the side stand?
I hope cyclopathic doesn't mind me answering your question DD. The link is below.
