    Want to put some bar risers on the Dakar (05).

    Morning all. A few friends and I are riding down to Tuscany through the alps in the summer, the first day being a 600 mile marathon from hertfordshire to Neuchatel in Switzerland. I'm looking for ways to increase the top speed of my trusty dakar as the other three all have rather quicker bikes...

    has anyone tried doing the mod to the left hand silencer on the F650GS, as described on the chain gang site ? will the baffle go back in ? does it make any difference to bottom end power ? does it sound good or just noisy ? cheers steve

    Have owned my first F650GS Dakar for a week now and am delighted. It's certainly very different to my R80GS Basic ! Its a TT39 and has been described by some unkind people on the GS club site as a Touratech catalogue on wheels ! Anyhow its in for its first service and I am considering a couple...
