I like that a lot.

Nice proportions, lovely lines & a great stance.

You should be very proud of and happy with that result.

Re: dragstar 650 bobber completed

Savage! Very nice work :)

Did you add any performance to the bike or is it standard?

Loved the 650 (had a classic) but I always though it could do with a brakes upgrade at least.


Cheers,
Rami

no.. is standard..
brakes isn't good enough, the only part that needs upgrade for me..

let me ask you something, your bmw needs local dealer to make every service? even if you pull off and put back the batery ?!! even from this simple movement? i said this because i want to buy r1100 gs or r1100r and make it to scrambler.. here people told me that i must visit very very often bmw dealer to put the motorcycle on the ''elctrical brain'' to clear all the error from organs.. is it true? i mean , i can't buy it and make it on my own in my garage? i must visit the dealer again and again to clear the electrical errors? i can't change signal lights for example at my own? the nearest bmw dealer is at 200 km distance!

Nah, you don't need to go to the dealer at all. By now, any mechanic will have the computer to work with BMW, which by the way you can get online for a few hundred euros really (google GS-911). It's pretty much the same as any bike now these days, they are all controlled by ECUS and will have the same alerts, etc.


I do the service myeslf at home and only have the computer reset by a mechanic in two minutes, but only if it bothers you seeing "service due" on the screen, the bike will continue to work without any issues.

Rami

No, it's not true for an 850/1100. The new ones yes but not the early ones. I've an r850r that is very very simple. Easy to clear any codes, very easy to service. Very simple by todays standards. There are lots of these turned into scramblers. Personally, I think the 850 engine is much smoother than the 1100 engine and realistically just as fast (or slow )

okey... how i clear any codes ? abs error for example..
maybe i buy 850 but nothning newer than 1100..
i can make it to scrambler very easy, this is something i know for soure! buttt what about errors..? someone told me that if the bike roll at the road and one sign of error is on, then , some day ,one morning, we don't know when, maybe the bike doesn't start at all.. errors confuse the hall electrical system on the bike, even that errors signs are ''fake''..

this is my thoughts and i haven't bought one of theese yet.. but i want!

Re: dragstar 650 bobber completed

Eh, I'm not sure about that.

Sometimes Hall sensors fail and if that happens the bike will not start and then you replace the hall sensor. I would read up more on it if I was you.

The only abs faults I've had on my 850 are when the battery voltage is low. The fault normally clears itself when the battery voltage is back to where it should be...that is my experience.

Even with the new ones, if you leave everything connected the way it was. You shouldn't have any issues...

The computer doesn't know nor care if you have different plastics or a chopped frame.

1150s are popular for scramblers, but to me they look a bit weird as scramblers are supposed to be a bit smaller/nimble than a big ol' GS.
