  1. 650 exhaust front pipes question

    I have a set of headers that were sold to me as for a 600. they came as a complete exhaust with the standard muffler. But the front pipe is clearly set for a 650. However there is no catalytic converter. Am I right after research that they will be from the very early 650 before 1992?. Please...

  3. Varadero & the addiction to modifying

    I feel that yesterday's Vtr shock fitment was the final chapter to project "Varastorm". Here's a list of modifications that I've done to my trackday Varadero :) I'm a bit shocked with the amount of things that I've done to it over the years, but here they all are in one thread, Engine...

  8. Dave's mod?

    Dominator / FMX
    As I fitted a Wiseco hi-comp piston to my Dommie, and I'm considering exhaust options (XR headers, 2 into one, different silencers), I wondered about jetting, and also about 'Dave's mod' which I've seen mentioned a few times here but searches yield nothing. So, can anyone point me to 'Dave's...

  10. Adios Transalp

    I've just said a sad goodbye to my fourth Transalp. A 2,600 mile trip to the south of Spain and back earlier in the year made me realise that the Transalp's performance limitations, while part of its charm, make it less than ideal for covering long distances in a hurry. And in my case 'in a...
