Any comments appreciated.

.

Don't over tighten that chain.
I took my chain roller off, you could try that, if that quietens it problem solved.
If it doesn't solve it then I have no idea.

Cheers,
Nordieboy is the DR guru. He'll probably be along shortly.

Standard mods are tank, exhaust, open airbox, bashplate, handguards. From there, the list is huge. Most people change the bars (bar risers), seat, tweak the suspension, heated grips. From there it's a new carb, big bore etc.

In my opinion, if you have to go that far, you should've bought a KTM 690 or similar.

Break out the plastic and take a look over here......

Hi
As i mentioned I been lurking for a while. Especially since I decided to seek out SI's more remote places,that not really accessible with a road bike.
So about a year ago Big Bird "followed " me home.
Now it is time to set her up for dirt.
The mods will get done as budget allows.
First a decent bash plate. I m still debating between an MSR or a B&B or a home made one.
Then a holder for a 5 tl fuel can to increase my range to 250 km + reserve. the El Cheapo way.
Then reinstate my night vision. as my headlight is cracked and the original in the shop is a bit much.
and some protection for it .
Then some luggage set up. Got a venture pack rack but i feel I need something more solid.
Up size the orig tool holder or fit an other one to house a spare tube and other bits.
And later some different pipe?
Not really thinking re jetting or big bore kits as I think if I want more power I get something else with more power.

I wonder why is this thread died? Is there no need for it?
Thanks.

Think soft luggage if riding difficult terrain. Keep it low and forward. Even a small amount of weight high and way back on the bike can upset the handling. Hard luggage is just another thing to break your bones when the bike lands on you.

hey Drift,have you looked at the 8lt fuel bladder,strap it anywhere on your bike and when empty,just roll it up and stash it.
made out of some tuff curtain sider type material,has eyelets at each corner for easy mounting.
used one on the cape york couple of years ago.
i think liquid containment in AU makes them @about $160

Hi there,

Thank you for the suggestion!
Are you using these?or just for one trip? How do you find it?
I have looked them up on the net. They look ok ,but can call me old fashioned but I still not trust these bladder types.They should be ok for road use but probably need a decent support for dirt. therefore defeating the purpose of being store able. hence a 5lt plactic petrol can will do the same job for the cost of $5. ( El Cheapo!!!) Well I m thinking having a petrol can as a semi permanent fixtures to my bike to extend the range until i have $$$$$$$ to fit a larger tank.Most likely it is tiresome mucking about with petrol cans but I just want to get out and ride not to wait until the bike is all set up. so the cost of these would cover about a 1/3 of a 18.5 or 20lt tank.Which I think should be the the long term goal.
Thanks.
