Hey Mikael,
I had the same issue with the suspension/swingarm/rear exh header/sidestand relocator. I cut a notch in the bar between the 2 mount points and it was no problem. Sure its very tight but it works and Im still keeping the 2 mounting points.

Speaking to safari tanks a while back about fuel pumps they told me some of the dakar riders were using a fuel pump and reg from a suzuki quad racer 450lt or something like that. The pumps and reg were available on ebay or the like pretty often when I looked and the price was about right. Might be an idea if you plan to mount it outside. I looked at it for my suzuki project and found that the post reg pressure was pretty similar to most bikes i found details on suzuki/honda etc.

Thanks for advice Tileman, but the 1190/990 fuel pump looks the way.

As i maybe have a running engine this comming week i´ve been working on tidying up cable and loose bolts here´n there.
I admit this have been some free styling.

Need to mount the EFI bridge stable and correct. It went fairly well without to much work. One problem that i now, for the first time could see the baseplate from the ITG airfilter would clash with my frame. Hey...i suck at this...

you can tell by the picture that this is way to the right. God Da..... Cost me a new baseplate(27£).
Frame rubbing.


Something that went ok was the mounting of the temp sensor in the airbox which doesn´t matter now.



I have been looking into cooling options and what solution might be the best. I have no idea how hot this engine will be, but if i could double the cooling factor(2 x fans) it would be great. The size of the fans does have something to say in this. More on this later with some pictures.

1 hp for this...


But that might the 1 hp that i need to get above 150 rear wheel ponies. SOoooo VERY important.

Those MAPs (Manifold Absolute Pressure) are one for each cylinder, they send a home signal to the ECU so that it knows which cylinder is inducting and which is exhausting. They work different to a car MAP in that they work as a switch. A car will inject fuel based on the MAP reading. The bike cannot do this as unlike a car that uses a plenum chamber to dampen the (4,6,8,) pulses the bikes single cylinder pulses to much for such a device to function. The tooth wheel on the crank gives degrease before top dead centre (TDC).... the third is atmospheric pressure. It will tell the ECU what to compensate for altitude and temperature along with the temp sensor.

This is just for your knowlege.... That fuel pump was.... interesting

Mr K2M i stand corrected and thanks for the MAP efi knowledge.

Holy m..... There is a steep learning curve in this project. Even when an airfilter baseplate is troublesome to mount. wow. But then again the baseplate is ordered with some other bits. My temp sensor will not fit were i put it when i place it right.

But yeah, the simple solution is to use a LC8/RC8 fuel pump in there, and I'm guessing they'll be fairly pricey on ebay, since there are plenty of people that want a spare.

I have these plates back in stock. We made another small batch. They bolt to the Aqualine tanks and have 2 pipe thread fittings so you can hook up a pull and return line or plug as needed. Plus no more Rubber gasket that leaks so bad.

We use these on our carbed bikes and get rid of the main petcock. This is a great tap to get fuel for your camp stove, drain your tanks, or transfer fuel to another bike.

It would be really cool if you had that plate with a large filter sock fixed to the inside over the fittings. And if there was an attainable, affordable external fi pump + regulator. Or did i miss something?

Merry x-mas and a happy new year. And with these small happenings aside we can focus on the matters in life.
Dakar and AMA SX the 5 jan. YAY

Happy new year. From our street, it was a super windy evening.




With holidays in the books i´ve been able to agree with a KTM mechanic about a meeting. We will try look into these immobiliser woes. More about that in 24 hours. I collected some stuff and manuals for having answers to most of my problem. Box of luck...



Took some weight measures of the 2 pumps.



just so you know.

Made the seat lock work again. Will make some neat arrangement on it when Petes rear tanks gets to me.


Running with the lower front guard and the 320mm suspension have caused a problem. Not big but will need to address it because it hits the 48mm sealing lip and the alu is über soft.


I needed to get the Bazzaz speedo sensor and it worried me a bit to drill holes in the caliper mount. I did 2 small holes(3mm) and mountes the speedo sensor on that. Looks fairly ok, we´ll see in real life and muddy conditions.

All the ziptyes and black plastic tube looks stupid but the sensor cable is soft like butter. This was my best way(for now) to protect it against debris and such.




Some generel cable protection/clean up around the bike.




The original LC8 fan is mounted with some through-the-radiator cable ties. Very sturdy and easy to fix. Give me your thoughts on this. It is rock solid.



Will cut of the studs later.



Working on some new HID lights. I´ll try to make a better cut off with some integrated projectors. But the heating process was a bit tough on the light...


The yellow dusty something in the bottom is created from the 50HID. Not bye oven heat.



Ohh...and i´m maybe picking up an Yamaha XT 250 tomorrow. It will be my daily driver and such. It just occured to me that J. Rambo in First blood made a get away on this type of bike. YEAH. I need a big knife and some long curly hair...safety 8th or something.

Exciting day tomorrow. Will keep you posted.

Would like to take a shot at it. It is now successfully removed from my wiring tree.

1190cc´s are turning but not a runner. Starter interlock is preventing us from a clean run(i think).

Will be back....arggg
