DRZ Rally bike.
« on: January 04, 2011, 10:56:03 pm »
What started as a small project to fit a screen on the DRZ ended a little bit differently, thanks to Beemer Man. I was searching for a typical 650 Dakar screen to fit on the bike. What I came across was a 1200 TT screen. With a bit of modification I think it came out splendid.

interesting to say the least.

Does it effect the handling in any way?

It looks very nice, I'd like to do something like that with my DR650.  I've got an extra light cowling to play around with.

Sorry for the off-topic.

Do you DRZ fanatics use a 16 teeth counter sprocket??  If so where may I get one or two??

I would like to try one on my DR350.  It looks like it will fit. 

Thanks.

Great white: nice! i have the same headlight shroud on my zook. Looks very nice with that screen.

Trac Mac sells them here in the cape. the biggest sprocket you'll get onto a DRZ is a 15 up front. But yes, its a common change made to the bikes.
I crash test all of my safety gear. Do you?

Nice.

Just a thought but you might want to reconsider the pro's of those radiator guards.
Looks like they block close to 40% of air flow if not more given the additional turbulence  ???

With the final ajustment done and screen set on the low position, I have tested the screen on and off road. And can report back that it works great  :thumleft:
