I got a contact with this person, there are two kits:

a) Rally kit Pro - includes:
* 2 side tanks + connectors
* special seat, to fit tanks
* front fairing + connectors
* rear subframe
* 2 rear tanks


2) Rally kit (new - unused)
* Tank 30Liters
* seat
* fairing + tower
* skidplate


For used parts, price could be about 1/2 of new.

PM, Kalvis

If you do start a new thread, let me know. I was doing my 800 at the same time you did. This time I'm building a bastard 625 Adventure/Rally bike. I've got most of the parts or they're on the way.

anybody have any ideas? cut the fairing? get a different fairing?

I was going to say, redo the fairing or the brackets..... one of the two has to move. The fiberglass work isn't THAT difficult, but will take time to do right. Or design a new bracket to move the roadbook back.

So now that you have put some good quality seat time on all three bikes (450, 505, 690), which bike would you take to the Dakar if there were no cc limitation?


I'm guessing it's between the 505 & the 690. The 505 gets credit for power and agility, while the 690 gets points for speed, stability and seat comfort on the long transfers.

To finish, I'd take exactly what I took. It made the hard sections easy and didn't completely suck anywhere. Maybe a 530 instead... but the point is I still think I made a good choice for my goals there.

The problem with the 690 is that it would be clearly better 90+% of the time, but lots more work on the balance... and who knows what the net effect of that is. I think it would be worst in the rocky bits, there were a few sections that were not trivial in Dakar, and for that matter, also in the Tuareg.

The 505 was wicked fun, but the lack of a kickstart could spell the end of the race, not a risk I like. Further, its a little buzzier than the W, between that and gearing it is not an ideal highway cruiser. But damn is it fun where you can play with the power.

Answering this is more fun than doing what I should be.
