    The 650 singles are the only ones with these pegs - BUT many oither's may fit - you just need the same angle on the peg and bracket (assuming all have the same diemsions, but I can't guarantee that)

    46717654663
    Footrest, left
    L=105MM
    From: 01/03/2000
    To: -
    Weight: 0.176 kg
    Price: $61.69
    Part 46717654663 was found on the following vehicles:
    But looking at Pivotpegz' site, it doesn't look like you can use 1200 pegs on the 650 since they have different partnumbers.
    BMW (2000-2007) F650GS & DAKAR
    - Pivot Pegz # PP-13MK3
    BMW (2013-2019) R1200GS & GSA
    - Pivot Pegz # PP-60MK3

    But then again - they don't use the same no. on the G650's as the F650 singles either, so they may be identical pegs with different PP partno.'s for internal stock handling puposes.
    BMW (2010-2018) G650GS & Sertão
    - Pivot Pegz # PP-12MK3

    Better just find someone with a 1200 and compare the pegs.

    I've seen those listed and wondered how is the build quality and longevity of the springs?

    Got any pics of them mounted?
    The price is right.

    It's those listings where I saw many additional models listed so I wondered if the mounts are all the same shape?

    So which XR650L steel shift lever is the best go to for a reshape and up upgrade over the stock one?

    Bikemaster
    s-l300.jpg

    MSR
    61-eoliyfkL._SL1500_.jpg

    Moose, IMS, oem Honda?
    Or Older Yamaya YZ?

    Tucker Rocky owns MSR and Bikemaster so I'd venture to say that Bikemaster lever is the exact same one as the pricier MSR lever.

    The XR650L needs some bending, however I've read the older YZ lever is the same shape and needs no bending .

    You can find steel shift lever for the older YZ too. IMS makes one.

    Are there distances/position differences how the XR650L vs YZ lever tip end up?

    PS so does the 800gs use the same style shifter as the f650?

    Thanks!
    And those work like pivot pegs and return to center with a spring?

    Yes they return to center just fine. They are very well made but not quite as polished as Pivot Pegz.

    It lists 2012 F650GS so it's either a misinformed seller or the single and twins use the same peg geometry. Better just ride over to a BMW shop and have a look.

    It's time to pass my adventure travel gear on. I made my rack and side bag system using soft bags from Cycle Gear. The bags have a plastic shell or liner inside that offers support and maintains their shape. I built this bag and rack system about eight or nine years ago and used it two or three times a year for trips to the mountains. I moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains five years ago I have not used it since I moved, now that I live where I used to take trips to. I would like to sell it to someone that can use it' $150.00 + shipping. It would be great if there's someone in the southwest Virginia area that could use it.
    Thanks, Kenny

    The top rack can be used alone without the side bags and of course all of the hardware comes with it.

    I'm more excited for the 790 Adventure unveiling tomorrow.

    Not that I'm in the market for either of them.

    Yeah must admit that that would be interesting maybe Honda might have something interesting up their sleeve
    I might be in the market but more likely 2020 I would never again buy a 1st year release
    KLR650 is also gone now interested to see what Kawasaki brings to the table however US Yamaha website have some initial figures
    For the T700 the US Yamaha site mentions a date 2nd half of 2020 for US if that is true it will be the longest anticipated wait for a bike
    some specs already announced 210mm front fork travel and 200mm rear travel butta will wait for the final figures.
    Watched the live feed tonight on it they also announced a tribute to the XT500 the XSR700 but it looked more like a cross between the desert sled and a Harley.

    Hi guys, a bit off topic
    my friend that's on that rtw trip atm should get her bike from customs in a day or so, route has changed so i'm looking for intel... Suggestions, must see stuff etc, any pitching in would be great...
    She's in Melbourne atm then going through the Snowy Mountains to Adelaide then up to Darwin and down the cost through Brisbane to Sydney. She doesn't do well offroad, so anything else would be welcoming :D
    Really hope @WayneC, @Aquatic, @Clay-doh, @wiz.au and anyone else from Oz could suggest anything :freaky

    @tkach she needs to fit in the Great Ocean Road into this trip, however from Melbourne to the Snowy Mountains will take her east from Melbourne, and the GOR is in a westerly direction from Melbourne (towards Adelaide)....unless from the Snowy bit she can head back towards Melbourne?

    2nd half of 2020? Damn, they might've dropped the ball a little there. KTM is probably going to start shipping the 790 ADV next year (based on the Duke's timing they'll ship in April 2019 here in Europe and fall 2019 in the US)
