2nd GR650

Postby dravideditor » 11 May 2012, 23:47

Hello all - I'm back w/ my second GR650 - sold my first and rode Triumphs for a few years.
Most folks know but I have some good info and articles at:http://www.davidreiss.com/tempter.html

Anyways by new Tempter is low on miles but needs a few things - but she's running and I'm riding and that is all that matters.

She's got low mileage at 7500 miles,
but has some surface rust and banged up a bit -
Here are some pics of the old girl after a good cleaning:

A huge tax bill made the Triumph Scrambler go - so back to a poor man's Triumph - the Gr650.

Cant aregue with that logic Dave.

you found yourself a good base for a prject thats for sure. what are your plans with it?

actually a slighty off topic question for you. have you come across in reasonable power upgrades that dont destroy the reliability? basically at the moment i'm stuck.

so far done:
- free flow exhaust ( sounds angry)
- pod filters
- upped the jets a little
- full engine freshen up and adjustment

she runs well was just looking for some increase in grunt. any ideas?
