    Ok, i was going to clean up and repack my ebay pipes but there was an Arrow exhaust and a hacksaw staring at me. I hope this works! What was the consensus on the lambda probe? 20200701_113700.jpg 20200701_114513.jpg

    Mine is too. Starting to crack too, but it is needed to keep the heat from your boots. Haven't found a solution yet.

    On my SD with the Barrett mufflers the oem heat shield does not fit anymore which is a good thing as it weighs a ton. After burning a hole in my pants leg I made this up. Couple of clamps with 6mm nuts welded on and used the oem heat shield bolts. Heat shield was panel beaten from an old piece of aluminium out of the scrap pile.

    Anyone know if there is an aftermarket or updated clutch switch for the RS650. Is there a part number from places like RS components.

    Yeah several people mention that as well. I stalled it up a rocky single track today and couldn't re-start the bike until I keep pulling and releasing the clutch several times.

    hehehe true, but i am now pro on doing it, in the morning and cold sometimes takes a bit, on stop lights if you rev it a bit its easy.
    But its an italian quirk (te630 its the same) i can live with because the other things are so nice (like innathyzit i have a heavly moded rs650 that just eats dirt)

    What's the small tank bag that you've got fitted in that pic? Seems to sit neatly with the Safari tank.

    Sorry for the late reply, i must have missed that question. Its just a cheap "leg bag" off ebay or wish. Screenshot_20201023-183609_Wish.jpg 20201019_142838.jpg

    Nice. Thanks for the reply. I'll check them out. All the standard tank bags seem to big and cumbersome to fit the Safari, but this seems to sit nicely.
