Vibration

Dont forget to add some rubber/silicon along the edges, the vibration and the sound of metal on metal might make you miss hearing other important noises along the way.

Mikl,
5 years ago I rode across Russia from Vladavostok to Latvia and then through Europe. You can see my KTM in the pictures. I had good luck and only one failure in Mongolia(a head gasket).

I met many Russian people and motorcyclists.

Who can not love the ISH.









I think you will grease the wheel bearings, steering head bearings and swing arm bolt and put on a new chain and sprockets.

I used this chain oiler.

I made it around the world on one chain but I needed two countershaft sprockets. Maybe you will take an extra countershaft sprocket with you.

Keep having fun!!!!

bill

Guys, Thank you for good advice!

Bill, I heard about your trip ) It is great) I'm always glad to hear about deep russian and 3rd world countries trips without comfort because it's trust, experience and karma)) Peace.

Hello Brothers! i'm back to report to you how the moving ahead is going!
The time is accelerating again and again..No rush but that's how I feel the time around, then i stop and have meditative analysis of the conditions..

So let's go to look at some work..

one week before i installed a sight tube..
Installed new wheel bearings , seals
installed front end with BRP submount




i ordered 22mm dust seal and took the full speedo mechanism off ...


My good old friend ground out new collars for me



I cleaned the frame


BRP submount and front end



installed hot grips with koso adjuster and scott grips



HDB handguards


My Xr has another master cylinder which I think is from TDM or other..So I relocated one hole for HDB switch holder installation and tapped the hole.


At this week I've been busy following


Installing new bearings not OEM but i think better than old ones)



Next it was fixing some issue like swingarm linkage frictions..
I tried to fix it with a very slim chrome stainless steel plate about 0.25 mm
Also i bought new linkage in nice condition on ebay, my one was eaten.




all was greased..







After that I had a chance to install KTM fan with therm switch..
I wanted to make it simple but made it difficult))) I cut old brackets from body and made new ones from alu plate and welded them on.







For the switch i found a good solution in this forum. I used a trail tech adapter.







I found time for the tank bracket! Thanks and big respect to Hodakaguy for the idea and work on it! I used this solution and built the same one from stainless steel metal..









bushings and washers was made from poliuretan




Installing new hi performance thermostat ordered from xr's only
and silicone hoses kit







THANKS FOR LOOKING! To be continued...

and yeah) i think details make up the whole result...it's not only about material things it's everywhere in our life.

Now I'm busy with my last customer project, full rebuild of FLHX with SE 110" kit...

Have a good time, brothers!
