Hey people

Steve from Ireland
Finally have a tdm it's an 2001 850
65,000 miles
Always one of my dream bikes
It has an exhaust of an Ducati evo 8 on it of all things.

So are there any mods or suggestions from group I heard of an easy airbox mod?

Hi and welcome Steve. The airbox mod is for the 9'er.  Superior 850 doesn't need it. :D  Only mods are really based on rider, such as changing handlebars, fitting hanguards, dropping the yolks for improved handling, fitting longer bar clamps and other fettlin stuff.

 

Is it a blue 850 you have ?


Mk2a 2000 in Silver. Top end Refurb @ 41100 miles, Scottoiler, Renthal Road High Bars, Up & Back Bar Risers, Bellypan, DL650 Handguards, Capt. Picard Bar Ends, House of Henty SS Wheel spacers, New Seat Cover Fitted. 58 MPG !!  Now owned by chrisbee !   Studley's mk2a Bloggerydoodaah !  Photos of my first MK1  Photos of my MK2a  TPLQHCSRSFC No. 1 Fan

Hi there, previous owner would have told but just in case ......... watch the oil level ! Most 850’s have a thirst for it, check the hand book for the correct procedure or just ask on here for advice.
Any photos of the bike ?
Where are you based ?

The 850 has two drain bolts.. An easy thing to overlook.
