Birth of a rallye bike

Birth of a Rally bike
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
Stage 1, sourcing a bike,
<o:p></o:p>
Well with lot of research, I decided on a KTM 525 maybe not the best bike for long haul rallies, but the best I could afford, the bike I purchase was a second hand
2005 KTM 525 with 4500km on the lock
<o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
The first to do is to rip into to and check everything is in good working order, drain all oils fields and give my baby new blood
<o:p></o:p>
While I was doing this a quick valve gap check and in section for damage
After this I pulled the forks apart for a clean & service and too drop in .48 springs
To suit my weight better .While the fork are out I’ve cleaned the head stem bearings
And applied fresh grease.
<o:p></o:p>
Next is the rear shock a quick clean and swap out the spring for a new better suited for my weight again while the shock was out I’ve pull the swing arm off for a clean and fresh grease. I discovered the rebound adjuster needle was broken no big deal as it needed a service any way, and a common issue,
<o:p></o:p>
The first Ride was just day trip in the local area Toolangi, bike performed well only one issue that was the water pump seal, $20 and fifteen minutes all fixed.
<o:p></o:p>
Stage 2
<o:p></o:p>
Spending lots of cash
<o:p></o:p>
With a bit of internet research, I ordered the flowing parts
<o:p></o:p>
16l safari tank
Stealth sprockets 15 /50t
DID vmx 250 chain
Full set wheel bearing and spacers
RS concept rallye faring & nav cluster
Thumper racing 570 big bore kit
Stage 2 cam
Touratech road book,
Ohlin steering damper.
EVS neck brace
09 Shift recon pant and jersey
<o:p></o:p>
And now I have run out of money (for Now), and waiting on all the parts to turn up
To my door.
After waiting near on three months I finally had the cash to pay the freight from <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">France</st1:country-region></st1:place> a whooping $886Aud for a whole 6kg (30kg cubic) was actually more the fairings. These things had better be good!!!
<o:p></o:p>
I also was assured the my 570 big bore kit would be delivered in the same week
About bloody time.
<o:p></o:p>
The only thing now I have changed my mind, Oh well I just sell the kit locally
To one of my brother mate for there KTM Motard

Stage 3 the fun part , opening boxes and pulling apart bikes .

What's the "RS concept rallye faring & nav cluster" worth?
I have a 2007 KTM 450EXC and I'm curious what it'd cost to 'fix' it up. $11,500 for the full conversion kit, but I'm interested in the fairing costs.
