Parts Are Arriving, Let the Build Begin!

Early September…

Parts from BRP (Billet Racing Products) and Dirt Tricks await on the porch,

then Touratech and Scotts Performance Products show up.

It’s like Christmas!

Sprockets, Triple clamp and more…

Steering stabilizer

Install goes smooth and easy.

First was the upper triple with Scotts Stabilizer mount and bar risers from BRP.The risers are rubber mounted to help dampen vibrations.

Scotts Stabilizer installed.

There are a few stabilizers available for the bike but the only choice was Scotts. I’m not much of a fan of heavy damping so with the Scotts I can set the high speed circuit for the heavy hits and set the low speed with very little damping.

BRP makes a chain guide that is just awesome. The stockers have shown to be susceptible to heavy abuse and the Dakar will through the worst at it so going with the BRP was a no brainer. Easy to install and should last longer than the Dakar and then some!

Dirt Tricks Ironman Sprockets are known to be tough, just what is need for the Dakar!

It was recommended to me to try a 43 rear as it worked for Ty Davis’s Team in the V2R. After a little testing it worked great for high top speed with out over revving the engine but a little to tall for sand and the technical stuff. I’ll be ordering another sprocket in the 47-48 range and then test some more.
