Don't make them any more
I think I like that routing the best actually (just straight up through the guide).
Bought a 1000mm brake line with 90 degree (or close to that) and 20 degree for one with ABS, might be slightly long, but a fan of the routing. Similar to what I've seen on my dirt bikes and other bikes where it routes inside the fork. Takes a lot longer brake line to route it from the ABS connector, where I found the 90 degree banjo worked well. I'll try and get better pictures of that connection too.
Exactly the same as mine routed
That's how I routed as well. The part I had trouble figuring out was the banjo to the ABS hookup. I didn't use a 90 degree though so that could be my problem. If you are able to post pictures of how you routed/installed the upper banjo so it doesn't hit the left fork at full lock I would be very interested.
This is the only picture I have on my phone of while I was bleeding it. I can get a better picture of it at full lock when I get home.
This was the best pictures I could get with the fairings on. Did steering to full both directions, you can kinda see the brake line. It's the black one zip tied to the ABS sensor wire.
The zip ties on the brake line junction are just to keep the throttle and clutch cable from popping out and getting pinched by the steering, not related to the brakes.
Picture above is at full right lock
Two picture above are at full left lock
Last picture is slightly off of left lock (to show it better).
That is fantastic! Thank you! I had a really hard time getting it set up so the fork didn't hit the brake line or banjo but it looks like you have a much larger angle than I do. I like yours much better.
Just finished the job!! Had a little ride round the block on Saturday, while still waiting for parts. The brake was a bit spongy so I re bled it. MOT has run out so can’t use it till next week . There’s probably a few bits to on the other bits of the bike , but the forks are done!!
Thanks for all your help.
Special thanks to Craig RATEL “, all the parts were bang on!!
There isn’t any way to keep the original front fender or you just like it more this way?
Yeh I bought a bracket to fit the oem to the yz forks it just needs drilling. I saw a few like this and thought I’d give it a try. ( only £15 to try ),If I don’t like it I’ll fit the original. Got to get out now and ride it!!
Found some better pictures of the brake junction for ABS bikes with the front headlight/dash off. That 90 degree bend really worked well. First picture is at full lock left.
Yup, I think that 90 degree bend is the key. Thanks!
Does anyone have photos of their side stand relocation? I'm thinking to move it to the footpeg bracket but am still in the concept stage. A whole new sidestand would probably be required.
I just cut and rewelded the mount the side stand attaches to so it sits at a better angle like MotoPsycoMan has described in the past and WayneC has on the Crossroadz page.
This is the best pictures I can remember seeing on the thread: https://advrider.com/f/threads/yamaha-forks-on-a-bmw-f650gs-dakar.399113/page-102#post-14459915
This picture use to be on the F650R & F650RR thread but I think it was old enough it finally got deleted. Nothing is ever truly deleted from the internet though. Here is the link to where it used to be.
An additional picture hopefully gives more details
Thanks for that. Has given me some ideas. Will start modelling in Solidworks soon. Ultimately I'm wanting to remove the bulky frame underneath so need to relocate it from its current location. The footpeg bracket seems the best place to start as TT did.
Does the stand then not hang and bit low under the bike and get snagged if you reeled the angle?
I’ve removed mine for now til I figure out what I want to do with it.
I’ll follow this with interest.
Yes it does affect ground clearance but if you run a taller suspension it would probably not make that much difference vs stock
Probably one of the better solutions out there by @username0
