It was suggested to start a new thread on farkles for the Terra, so I'll kick it off. I'm posting a copy of a previous post. While on the road and taking a break from towing the new bike home I had a chance to look over a few things that will need attention. Skid plate, for sure! The rubber peg inserts have to go, right away, and the shift lever needs to be adjusted up, of course, to clear my boots. I wonder if there are any aftermarket shift levers for the BMW 650 and if they would fit this bike. The brake lever needs attention. If the lever can be flipped over and a new section cut and welded to the front to go over the peg it would be good. I'll have to remove the lever to see what's on the back side at the pivot point. The master cylinder connection to the rod will have to be changed to come in from the top, with an offset tab. This probably won't make sense to anyone yet. I just don't want the lever hanging down so low. With some good welding, grinding, filing and some powder coat, it will look factory. The kick stand on mine is nearly a suicide item: kicks up by itself usually when lifting the bike off the stand. It's about 3/4" short at first glance, unless a lot of sag is added, and the pad is too small for dirt. That is easy to fix. I'm going to reinforce the back side of the stand with a half round tube welded all around, like I do on my 630 stands. That should make it strong enough to let me stand on the peg when mounting over gear, etc. The suicide bit means looking at the spring location and changing the geometry just a tad. Not too difficult either. No chain guide in front of the rear sprocket? Not needed, or just a cost cutting measure from the factory? I wonder if brackets could be fabricated to clamp around the swing arm so that a good BRP roller guide can be installed. I think so. The rims are suspect, but if the bike doesn't get hammered on the rocks and ledges, maybe they will be OK. I'm sure they are fine for the street. Looks like the hubs are straight off of the BMW 650. Motosportz, want to tackle any of this stuff? All in all, not too many projects, and not too difficult. But first, to go for a ride. I didn't even take it around the parking lot this morning; just loaded it up and headed for home. Tomorrow I'll put on about 300 easy miles if all goes according to plan. Cross bar on the bars, for sure, just welded on as per Mark Sampson.
