En este caso, me encontre en Peru con una persona que venia de USA, me lo entrego y yo lo pase.

Con las cosas voluminosas es mas complicado.. pero tampoco es imposible, sabes como es el tema aca.. jejej


lo mismo hice con esto:

TT tank syphoning

I did find out the syphoning / sealing had worked reasonably well. When I took the gas cap off a lot of gasoline came out, it was filled well above the fill level. Good deal!


I think I finally got the syphoning to the TT tank to work reliably. The vent flange was not sealing reliably enough despite a new gasket. Sometimes it sealed and sometimes it did not. I was hesitant to tighten the screws too much, since they go in the plastic of the tank. Well, it seems some of these screw holes were pretty much stripped. I added some black RTV to the gasket surface and now things finally seem to work fine. Anybody find some oversize screws of the same type to use?

I added a clear fuel filter in the line to the XC tank. I can see if the syphon is working.

Checklist:
- TT tank (bought it used from Norway) works, riding range now acceptable
- TT bash plate installed (bought it used from Norway)
- Hotrod Welding rack installed
- Wolfman Rocky Mountain bags bought and installed and used for my first weekend ride.
- Horn replaced and it quit working, need to go back to Napa
- Fan-On LED installed
- Air shock replaced with Hyperpro
- Hyperliights installed
- Toolkit assembled
- Small Seahorse box installed on rack for around town riding
- SparkBright Voltage LED monitor installed, cheap way to check your charging system
- Got my riding spare parts
- Installed center stand (SW-Motech), not so easy to get it on the center - stand when the bike is loaded.
- MRA windshield
- Heated gear wiring installed

Left to do:
- Seat Concepts seat redo
- I have been looking at a vaportech, anybody used it on an XC with std dashboard?
- I need to install some other front fender. Last weekends ride with some mild mud crudded up parts of the radiator quickly.

The bike is just about ready for some long trips this summer and for another big one next summer, still working on my 2014 options.

received my TT tank today




90% installed, still got to route the fuel lines to the vent on the stock tank..










I think i'll add some vinyl graphics to the tank.. it looks too white.. I'm thinking something like this (sorry for my lack of pic editing skills)

Bluhduh Need better fuel line...

I recommend replacing the fuel line that comes with the tank with something better. I have only had my tank for about 12 mo this and am having to replace the line because of cracking already.

Just my 2 cents.

Well I've had a slight issue with my BMW GX. Basically, long story short I ordered some switchgear from Highwaydirtbikes. Sadly I'm living in Cambodia and they went missing in the post to which they very decently refunded my money but cut off contact. I can hardly blame them for not wanting to deal with me again but it's a problem. It's a problem because I own several other bikes and have had to scavenge the switchgear. I have used a chinese kill-switch. Wow, just wow. It's wired backwards and the switches fell out in one day. So I got to to thinking and my dad is a retired engineer and he's building me a whole new set of switches. Let me give a rough description. On the left you have a maximum of 50mm width and on the right, about 30mm if you removed both pods. So we've come up with 25mm pods, I'll use two on one side and one on the other. Straight off, I'm changing the way my indicators work. I prefer the BMW push button so I'm using a hybrid of that and the Harley Davidson method, ie, click left to go left and push the same button again to cancel. Each pod has two switches, I'm sourcing a hazardproof IP67 switch, water and dustproof and I'm adding a custom top clamp for the remaining functions. So, my dad is planning to offer these for sale if they work out well enough. They'll fit any bikes with a 22mm bar, be turned by hand from solid billet aluminum and fitted with either push to make or latching switches in black, red or blue. They can be used to add switches or replace the horrible standard gear with something pretty. The clamps will have space for 3 more of the same type of switch, ideal for adding spotlights or interrupters. Here are some preliminary drawings, the prototypes should be fitted in about 4 weeks.
Cheers. PM me if you're interested.

hello,

just thought that i would pass this on.

the brake fits straight on, and the clutch needs some tweaking... but it will fit.

So what did you do to the clutch?

I really like the set BS-Motoparts sells but they wont ship to the states or Canada.

the only reason i tried the adjustable levers was because, i (and the shop) just couldnt get more pressure for the brake lever. and now with the new adjustable brake lever, the feel is much better

as for the clutch, the mounting hole, was longer then what was needed, so i had to trim it down, it also needed a shim (sleeve for the screw to go through) of something to stop the wearing on the mounting screw, same as the brass shim on the stock lever. and then it needed some re-shaping to fit into the housing.
it wasnt difficult, just some patients, but the end result is well worth it....

I'm using a Honda CR250 clutch lever. I wanted adjustable because I've got a heavy duty clutch and because... well... it looked cool. I had to sand off a little metal, took about 10 minutes with wet'n'dry wrapped round a file. Perfect.

Sounds like xaman found a bash plate.. I have a small TT rack and a plastic skid/bash plate, I'd like to trade, plus some $$ for a different skid plate. I have the plastic one (I can't remember the mfg.) it's got a lot of scratches in it..
I'd like to find a substantial metal skid/bash plate instead.. . (I'll also throw in the factory skid plate that rides inside my plastic one.)

As mentioned in an earlier post I got my Touratech siphoning to work. I also installed a filter in the line that takes the fuel to the factory tank. That is working fine as well. It did get me curious though, where is the factory fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator. It does not have what my Dakar had, an external integral fuel filter/regulator. So, I assume it is al built in the fuel tank, but I do not see anything on a part fiche. So where are these things?

Just curious,

KP

Work on your Google skills and look harder at the parts fiche. It is the top flange in the gas tank. Filter is part of the pump system.

I must be lacking reading skills, not necessarily Google skills. It must be my old eyes, I do not see anything called "regulator", "pressure regulator" or "filter" or anything like it in the parts fiche. I do see a strainer, but a strainer does not equate fuel filter. All fuel pumps I have seen have a strainer at the fuel pump inlet and a separate fuel filter. If it is part of the pump assy then only that answer really would have sufficed. ..........
