Converted to a 21Ē front wheel from a DR650. It was pretty damn close to swapping with no work, but not quite.  They both use a 17mm axle, so no changes there.

First, I had to turn 4mm off the DR speedo gear face. Then, I modified the BMW cable end to match the DR receiver...




Then, just a few mil off the DR spacer and we mount right up...

A small update with the back tank and front seat mount, which is a bracket added to the stock mount...

Working on simplifying this wiring harness...

...

Everything still shows on the drawing, but deleted parts lose their lines.

Header from an Ď05 GS has the perfect bend to tie the Ducati muffler in. Even has a bung for an 02 sensor/gauge. Itíll come in handy tuning the carbs.



A clamp for the front side is forthcoming.

Weíre going to attempt to run TM34 flatslides. Itís super tight, and I had to make a bracket to keep them off each other.  Dialing this things in is going to be a blast...

Glassing up a DR350s fairing and shaping a Super Tenere windshield with heat. Still a long way to go, but you should get the idea where Iím heading...

Wow, this thing is going to be awesome. Easy to say, but everything seems to be falling into place. Watching the progress eagerly....

One major issue with fitment of the TM34 carbs and this frame is the location of the idle adjust.  The left carb is right on the frame and the right is between the two. So, with no remote adjusters for this carb, I set out to make my own.

I took a TM33 pumper remote...

separated the cable and screw, and brazed it to the TM34 adjuster that was turned down...




Then, I drill a hole through the frame...


Now I have adjust located out of frame...


Iíll at least plug the hole, but a thought to weld a tube is also there.
