My new Golden VStrom "DL800"

Hi!
I meet you my "new" DL800:

800 is a little joke because I adapted some pieces from DL1000 in my DL650. Could you see the differences?:rolleyes:
The color is a scorched yellow Triumph.
Salut!

The side cowlings and passenger footpeg brackets stand out. Tell us about the side cowling to radiator connection. Did you need to do something there? How about the piece under the headlights between the side cowlings?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

They are DL1000 brackets and are a direct bolt on replacement.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

The piece under the headlights is also from a DL1000 crashed.
The DL1000 side cowling is bigger than DL650.
I built with a metal piece a little supplement to connect the radiator hole.
Sorry, I don't remember if took pictures about it.
But is so easy this "little" modification.
Only needs the pair of side cowlings, the plastic piece under the headlights and some imagination.
