Not a goody, but necessary replaced the oe battery to a lithium iode. Much lighter than standard but you need the charger to first charge it fully first. Doh!

I made the foot the same as the original because the Touratech shoe will fit it.
As I don't do any off road it's not a problem. Thanks for the reply.

Rally raid wheels

Finally fitted the rear wheel after a new design completed.

Well, still waiting for the new revised wheel. Should be end of this month or into the next.
Having the stock wheel on the back, doesn't inspire any confidence. Cannot wait for the rear to arrive.

I watched a utube vid on the beemer, overall the tester was of the opinion that it was very boring to ride. Not like a wild DCT.

So far, I'm riding the DCT with 19 inch front with the standard rear. It rides nice even with odd tyres but 17 inch is still better.
