My farkles

I thought I'd share my recent farkles. Some were Christmas presents from my wonderful wife, others were bought by me. My wife ordered a Shad topbox for me, but it hasn't come in yet.

1. My Wee
2. DR 650 shifter mod for the Motorcycle Larry footpeg lowering kit (the DR650 shifter helps deal with the new peg location which is further down and out)
3. Rear brake modification to lower the brake pedal (also necessary for the lower footpeg location)
4. Rocker switch for the grip heaters (sorry, bad pic)
5. New Givi shield and Madstad bracket and Handgaurds

Does the stock Dr650 shifter bolt right on or did you have to modify it?

Darryl,

The DR650 shifter bolts right on to the shift spline--no modification at all. You can then do away with all the linkage of the stock shifter.

After getting rid of all that linkage, is the shift pattern reversed now??
