You're sounding a bit jaded. I haven't been on FB much recently so am not sure what issues you have been having since your water pump leak. I noticed that you blew your shock but as it's after-market you can't really blame the bike for that. What else has gone wrong?

I agree with bike prices down there, I sold a Transalp '94 and bought a BMW GSD650 over here for the same money
Hola! Gracias! sos de Arg? que parte?

I'm not sure where those pics where taken, somewhere in NOA probably.

Anyway.. I got the X at home now but didn't have a chance to do a proper ride yet, just a few runs around my block.

already took the rear fender off (i'll probably install a tail tidy), installed a clutch perch with shorty lever, rallye foam grips and replaced some rusty bolts.

Dashboard lights wont light up and bike won't start.

I took the XChallenge to the shop, they couldn't find the problem, should I replace the ignition barrel?

Easy enough to test. Follow the lead back from the barrel to the connector under the clocks. There are only 2 wires which should connect when ignition is on. Test barrel with multimeter or bike by shorting 2 wires from the loom itself.

Hi Zoharl.. the perch wont hold the safety switch 'couse its universal fitment, I just took the switch off and looped the wires so it will start in gear.

The clutch perch and lever are Argentinean made, the brand is WIRTZ.. I believe they also sell internationally .. here is their site http://www.wirtz.net/catalog

There are many different options, short lever, long lever, flex levers etc.etc. you just choose what you like most.

Some of their stuff look very similar to some moose parts, I was told that they fab stuff for moose but I'm not certain of this.

I am in the process of mounting a rocker switch in place of the barrel assembly. IMO they are so prone to failure I don't want to replace such a cheesy piece. Currently looking for a suitable mounting point, not sure I want it right out in the open....

Put 2 or 3 switches on there together. It will confuse people.

Or just don't worry about it. People will be looking for a key switch and miss one like that. You could also use a reed switch and a rare earth magnet.

I was thinking that if it was out in the open someone fiddling with the bike could turn it on by accident. I would bet that it will be handlebar mounted shortly. The don't worry about it option seems most likely.

GPS Hardwire

Anyone have info on hardwiring a GPS Garmin Montana to the x challenge? I have purchased the ram mount (garmin) adapter that allows you to snap the GPS directly into it, then mount to the bike. I haven't received the mount yet so Im unsure on the wires. I would like to wire it into the key, so when I turn the key off the gps is not draining the battery?

Any suggestions on wiring.

The best way I found is to purchase a "automotive relay" from radio shack and use a Centech AP-1 or similar wiring block for the bike. Use the diagram below...

Here are the photos of my install...

You do not necessarily need to remove the airbox to do this install, but I was doing a bunch of other things when I did my install...

The red square in the photo to the right of the throttle body (with the red rag stuffed in it) is the automotive relay...

Millenium technologies can do that. It won't be cheap and I don't know if I can find anyone to re-flash the ECU with appropriate fuel maps. I'm a Luddite when it comes to computers. The DS 650 was carbureted so it was something they could do easily with jetting. Ours aren't so easy.
Bottom line, if I can fit the standard bore JE piston with 11.5 then that is what is going in. I don't want another cast piston. I'll do what I can once I know how close these two pistons were in compression height to minimize the impact if it is higher with pockets.
Cheers, Frank
This place looks interesting: http://www.omwracing.com/engines_rotaxds650.htm
730, 770, or even 800cc!
Power Commander makes a tuneable fuel control unit for the X.
