Looking very good and the KTM tower looks

can you give me a link where to see technical data of the light and where to buy?

Finished those damn exams last week, got to work a little more on my bike this weekend. Have to have it done by the 27th, when I have to drop it off for transportation to Tunisia. Luckily it's just a 300km drive to the drop off point, not 1000km!

My order of tires arrived for myself and Ed:


Mounted and ready to go:




Little problem with the low front CF fender. The Yammie doesn't have the "standard" mounting positions for the fork guards, so I will have to make an adapter somehow, or just use the normal high fender:


Footpegs now nicely fit. Also a new shift lever:


Cockpit shaping up nicely. The fairing is just held there by a piece of wire to test the position.








Small light switch:


Extra thick padded seat (not so much monkey-butt) with suede cover and big rallye pouch for the time card:




Acerbis 13L front tank:


Rear right side alu tank from the Yamaha rallye kit:


Nice shape and build quality:


Upgraded the fragile plastic lids to a billet one, cable tied to the tank:


Bolts on to the stock location of the exhaust:






Perfect fit to the subframe and plastic:


New exhaust header that runs under the frame:






Fixes to the bottom of the frame nicely:

Great to see a steel-framed WR still cutting the mustard. Nice development page. Good luck in Tunisia!

Topo the big problem with the yanks ,brits & euros doing Aus safari is they lose there bikes for 16+ weeks so they end up missing rally's over there ,

Unless they have spare bikes or hire a bike set up down here ,
So although the free shipping is good there is the 8 weeks each way for shipping

Once I finish my 690rally , ill start building the 500EXC rally lite , which I might hire out or the 690
Depending on which one I like bestv

Quick update. Got the bike done Wednesday, when we also dropped it off for transportation to Tunisia.

One we go! Since I'm running both front and rear tanks, I obviously need a fuel tap to switch between the two sources. This little unit it standard on quite a few Yamahas and costs used under 40€ (not like the KTM model for a few hundred €'s).


I then fabricated this little bracket...




To be able to mount the little bugger on the 2 screws that hold the lid of the electric starter gear:


Meanwhile, Ed was updstairs in the living room completing his ride with the help of my brother, Tim:




Flexy bars for him:


10L rear Safari tank plus 13L up ront, let's hope it's enough for the 2-stroke


Back to my bike. The left rear tank was still unmounted. It mount to the stock location of the radiator catch tank on top:


and a bracket that goes through the chain roller:


The top side of the tank has a bracket fitted that is fixed in place by rubber grommets:


The bottom side has threads welded inside:


Neat fix:


View of both tanks:


To help get the fuel to the carb, I needed a fuel pump. Only good solution is a vacuum type from a Yamaha XT. Yet again, I fabricated the necessary bracket on the left:


Fixes nicely to the stock location of the reg/rec:


Since I was in a rush after all these parts there aren't many pics unfortunately, but here is the end result:


I couldn't finish the side part of the fairing in time, so it's just the front face on there. We'll think of it as saving weight


And finally the box is all sorted. I stuffed my boots in there to save some weight in my luggage when flying down:


See you in a few then guys, Jenny will keep you guys posted and I may chime in given the chance
