Venting hot oily fumes from the crank to airbox ain´t exactly...the best solution.

So, time to rework. Any comment on this is most wellcome!

From crank to "oilbox" to atmosphere

Got some "leftovers", recycling is the word, right?


Cut and trim to better size


A leftover sas hose: cut to size


This plug that sits in the back can´t be fitted there in my setup. So replacing it to one of the bigger outlets, with a hose attached to it.This will be for venting out.
What do you think, should i connect a filter in the end of the hose, or is it not necessary?




This is where it places in the frame


setup

I split (pryed with a small chisel) this piece open (looks like it was just melted together) and stuffed the labrynth inside full of universal air filter material and then used plastic epoxy to put the 2 pieces back together. No it is not serviceable this way, but it kept me from adding more junk onto the outside of it and it will keep the big chunks from falling in. Realistically I'd bet that it wouldn't have been much of an issue seeing as how the crankcases expanding hot air will blow out and not suck anything in, but adding the foam helped me sleep at night.

Cheers mate. The fact that it looks like some kind of labrynth inside makes me think the exit hose can be routed down towards the rear shock area and no dirt/water will get in.

Don't know if you noticed my version of the vent hoses in the main thread so, I'll post here.

I used a part from the SAS system mounted to one of the outlets from the collector box that you modified and a small K&N Breather Element.

Nope. Will rework it when winter arrives, and think I will still use the Suzi quad pump, and have a vaccumpump help feed it. Really would like the fuelpump out from the tank...
But would still be nice to se Speedi´s sollution.

But for now I just wanna ride the darn thing!


Nice to see I can stir the pot a bit. Remember Mudders, You started it!
Lookin forward for your buildthread!

Still no bashplate though....starting to loose hope on RRUK now...

Got some stickers made for it. Wadayathink?









Oh, and I run mousse!

Yes remember that one. Really neat and well thought through.

Beaney is right though, let's get this back on topic. Sorry Evil Invader for the minor diversion.

Here is the now finished 690 Adventure R owned by David Jenni from Enduristan, next to Despres Rally. It was built by KTM Basel with OEM 450 Rally parts and they are thinking about making it available as a kit:

That is good lookin!!

Guess what I picked up today ............one RH tank and seat still waiting on left tank ordered these in August .
So it's 42deg C today sweating my arse off in a garage looking and seeing what has to be done next

Also got some goodies from KTMTwins , Fastway Adv pegs , sigtech clutch slave, and CA fuel pump .

Now I've been thinking of a fuel pump set up like the 950's with the pump up front down low with all tanks draining
Into the pump manifold then pumped to the throttle body ?


Also had to check whether the rally tanks will fit on the 500 .........No

Dude, i had no idea you where in the middle of the build when we rode in Härjedalen this summer.
Nice project! I actually thought you had bought another pro built Dakar bike!
See you on the trail when (if ever) spring comes around :)
