Before you fit the aftermarket filter please have a look at this:

Yo Noobie

Someone is interested in your pillion footpegs.
Let his know how much if you want to sell them.

You dont read the actual posts do you?

LOL

Let me try answer some questions on behalf of Noobie until he gets a chance to reply himself:

1.) No he didnt raise the suspension. Might just be an illusion based on the Camer angle of the photo.
2.) He used Rustoleum Spraypaint, Noobie would have to give you the exact colours / variants.
3.) That front fender is from RAD Moto, it's a Polysport Plastic, potentially meant for a KTM, but slightly modified with bigger drilled holes for mounting onto the DR650.
4.) I'm pretty sure Dane would sell his Pillion Pegs, although if I remember correctly, only one of them had springs.

His other stuff as advertised is still available for sale, all the Wild Dogs who had 1st dibs, never ended up putting the money where their mouths are, so first who pay up, get the goods.

I'm Noobie's neighbour, that's why I am so closely involved with the progress of this bike, its been an awesome 2 months of watching this bike take shape.

Cheers

Thanks Xchallenge :thumleft:

Its like having my own PA :lol8:

Are you going to fit some more off-road orientated tyres noobie? Will add to the look I think :ricky:

Hey Boland, I was planning on putting on some Michelin T63's as recommended by Xchallenge but the money which was allocated to tyres was "absorbed" into the spares I ordered from ProCycle.  :P So for now its on my wish list ;)

Why dont you just give a few kicks up the butts to the Wild Dogs who wanted all your OEM stuff.
Maybe the just forgot?

Im sure with that cash you can afford to get some T63's...theyre quite cheap, check here:

Looks like that filter was never cleaned!

Thanks for the heads up, I will be sure to keep it clean. It looks like that bike was ridden with the air filter side cover removed?

I can also recommend Renz, great service and good prices. You should look at EO9's as well (next month  ;)) I paid around R800 for the rear and around R900 for the front if i remember correctly for the dakar spec ones. That rear looks the part and is excellent on the dirt!!

I wander how long those Michelin T63's would last if you only use them 90% on-road.

Probably not very long...ha ha.

I reckon 2000km MAX! Well the rear anyway...
