Trade it in for a WR250R ;-)
Don't laugh but there may be a Suzuki VanVan 200 in my near future. I.am always looking for the goat trail bike.
Don't overlook the XT250. It's a great runaround bike that can tackle trails. Just did Cogent front and back on my mine and it rides great.
I've been passively stalking the VanVan since its announcement. Wasn't planning on adding one to the stable yet but if the deal is right I will jump at it.
Been wanting a bike to replace my fat tired mountain bike.
Had the chance to finally use the Wunderlich shifter today. Major improvement over stock. The rubber shifter foot is on a roller so that helps smooth the shifter action even more than the bronze bushing.
Hope I don't break it.
That shifter is expensive but worth every penny. It offers amazingly precise and smooth shifting. I also greased the Delrin plastic bushing.
Added the Super Brace kit today, really nice design and a cinch to install. This reduces vibration when a GPS is mounted on the crossbar.
That brace is nicer than the one that came with my Madstat bracket
Great deal for $25 shipped.
Yesterday I installed the Blueskysea DV688 dash cam with front and back cameras. The installation was very easy and it seems to work well. Sold on Amazon or can be gotten for a lot less by contacting Blueskysea on Alibaba.
Here's a youtube review
Because if you get in an accident, don't have a dash cam and there are no witnesses who can corroborate your side of the story it ends up being your word against the other party who caused the accident. They can claim anything and you can end up royally screwed.
Haha. 99% of the time it's pretty easy to figure it out. Then again that 1% could suck . Seems ridiculous to me but I get it. Must suck to live in China or Russia.
I'd rather have my own proof than simply hope if I'm in an accident the cops can prove who caused it. I don't think it's that easy to figure out in many cases because of circumstances or police competency/willingness to investigate, that's why dash cams rapidly rising in popularity even in the US. https://www.usatoday.com/story/mone...-fast-due-safety-conscious-drivers/373631002/
It can also serve as an action cam if desired.
I've seen several home made versions of this -- this one looks much better; but where do you buy it?
I'm curious if this is also any good (or just a distraction) as an alternative for rear view ie. better then mirrors for vibration, headlight glare at night, or just for perspective with a centered wide angle view?
There's a link for the super brace in my post. It'll take you to the vendor thread on the YST forum.
The rear camera is intended solely for video recording. For example, recording someone tailing or otherwise harassing you from behind. Or for recreational use. There are several screen settings: The default setting is mostly front camera with the rear view displayed in the upper right corner of the screen (shown above). The reverse can also be done as well as only front or only back.
Yamaha 'brand' crash bars? Got a part number or link to where these can be found online?
Thanks, inline links posted don't have any noticeable contrasting color in this forum's setup -- had to mouse over to find it...
Note, mine are modified so the top-front- loop is not used.
Ah, so that thing is a two part affair that can be used as two parts as well -- I like what you did there!
