    Hi AJ. Yup, you're right - I'm one of the UK (Scottish) contingent :evil. Interesting bar setup, and nice it's in S/S. Is that a matching bashplate I see in there too - also custom? Did the previous guy really DIY them?

    Yup. But I still ain't done the left one.
    Or the carb needles & slides. Lazy bastard. To many machines. :rolleyes
    AT?
    Can you give us some more info, good pix on the modded Transalp bash plate? Looks like a good way to go. I want something better.

    i was actually thinking to get V-strom Bashplate...but it ain't come cheap...so i gave it a miss.....varadero bashplate also comes to mind...but no one put it on sale yet....and varadero is a euro made....so parts ain't cheap compared to japanese parts....

    tats my 2 cents dudes....:freaky

    Damn thieves.
    Whatever works. Hell, I got a $20+ bicycle seat gell pad strapped on the tiny seat of my '96 Buell S1. Works damn good & ain't nobody gonna steal it.
    More bashplate pix? Close pix?
    Edit: Friend has a "Trans Slap", I'll have to look at it & get some pix.

    no worries man...now its like 0045hrs....just finish up on my XR...removing some accesories...selling bike tomoro....

    anyway guys,dun really hae high hope on the bashplate thingy...it really doesnt look fantastic close up...because this is a try an error situation....so everything is done not well plan or not even plan at all...the trimming of the bashplates very messy....maybe it will be a prototype to all the TDM riders....:rofl

    maybe you guys can come up with a better one on your bashplates....:freaky

    I also have a savage 650,which is really extinct here....and my bike is already a mess....now it fails to start....such a pain...not sure issit rectifier or stator coil....new battery....but always flat 2 days later....suspect current leak....after recharge,It roars back to life...but currently,it just choking....
    anyway,the point is,The savage site from Japan rawks....do send some picts of TDM from japan here pls....best if the HardCore type....:freaky
