Which Bike? This Bike. DR650
This is the beast for me. 4 previous owners. 9000 miles at purchase.
Shes going to be getting the full makeover this winter. Here's a brief list of what's to come:
Sargent/Renazco seat (maybe Procycle's rebuild--any reviews?)
FMF Q4 slip-on
Airbox mod/ dynojet- maybe Mikuni 40 upgrade later?
Wolfman Expedition Dry Panniers & Rack. I appreciate the design very much, super lightweight, and ensures I don't overpack.
Front & Rear suspension retool. The usual.
14/42 or 14,15/45 sprocket 520 chain. Still up in the air about this one.
Vapor Stealth Odo/Tach Computer
Gps much later before departure.
Headlight/Fairing Mod-- Dunno if to replace an 8"round HID w/ a Givi or 2 lil' Buell in the Lynx System?
The list goes on.
also comb over engine to see weaknesses and fix.
Give me 6 months for the mods. However, we'll see how long it takes to save the dinero for my RTW. Cheers
