Greetings from Jakarta!

Post by Limasenar » Thu Jun 25, 2020 3:19 pm

Good day, everyone!

Raptor 650 i.e. newbie here from Jakarta, Indonesia; just got my '08 delivered last Friday after months of contemplation as it'd been more than 15 years since I owned/ridden a bike (my last bike was an '02 Gixxer 750). So glad I decided to pick her up as I have always admired SV/TL engines and of course the fine bodywork which in my opinion never gets dated. She's got more than 35k under her belt with around 20-30% mods from front and back.

A few highlights of aftermarket specs:
  • ProArm single-side swingarm
    Custom local undertail exhausts (k10 R1-style)
    LED daymaker headlight + taillight
    Spy mirror
    Frame slider
    Rizoma handgrip
    Set of Battlax 21s
Anyway here are several pics of my bike. I intend to revert her to 90% original state (including the original fairing/windscreen - appreciate if anyone can provide leads as to where I might find one).

Thank you and look forward to hearing from you all. Cheers! :tada: :drunk:

Welcome indeed! It's amazing to see the spread of the membership. Are you a native of Indonesia or just living there for a while?

The bike looks great! It's the first time I've heard of a single-sided swing-arm conversion on one of these. Was the ProArm a Honda thing? I think my Honda NTV/Revere was reckoned to have one of them but it was shaft-drive through it, so not the same as yours. Maybe it's an aftermarket conversion?

Enjoy the bike! :happyhappy:

Thank you, Nick! I am a native here and came across the group just a few weeks ago (glad I did).

The bike had the swingarm change sometime during the 2nd ownership (I'm the 4th) and to be honest I've yet to confirm whether it's an elf/Honda usually found on VFR/RVF/NTV/NC models or a custom built/conversion. Pretty sturdy during rides but it may quite challenging if I decide to revert to standard exhaust placement since the arm protrudes slightly.

Cheers! :thumbsup:

including the original fairing/windscreen - appreciate if anyone can provide leads as to where I might find one
The raptor never came with a fairing/windscreen or are you thinking of the fancy gubbins on the front of the V-Raptor model? If so then I reckon these will be as rare as hens teeth.

I reckon it looks to be pretty good as it is and if it isn't a bodge job then why not leave it alone?

Hi, Andy. I was referring to the angular fairing that sits right on top of the headlight (doesn't house the headlight itself like the V-Raptor). Not sure if they were standard OEM, though (please see picture below).

Thanks for the feedback.

More for Andie's benefit; I'm pretty sure that screen only appeared on the 650ie and not the earlier 1000 Raptor. It works well to deflect a bit of wind pressure, without creating turbulence. I wonder why someone removed it? You'll be lucky to find one!

Puig make some screens that fit, though not as neat.

Strange to see a bike with a front numberplate. :D

Agree, Nick. I think out of less than 10 650 (i.e.) that were imported here only 1 that still has its fairing intact (rarely ridden, as far as I know). Definitely rare to find among the used part pool.

I'm leaning toward Puig as alternative. MRA also make pretty decent models.

Aye, sir...I love the stripped look either way. Unfortunately here we're required to put plates on both ends. :D

Thanks for the pics, Trevor. Definitely fits well especially how it blends with the bike's color. Might go with that option.
