Hi,

Have done 1000 miles on my XTZ so far, and love it. It needed some work done, but it runs almost perfect for now and it saved me a lot of money from my originel plans (buying an RD07a). So, I have some spare cash for new goodies.

I am still thinkering with the idea of building a dakar replica, but am wondering if:

- bigger fuel tanks are available
- rear fuel tanks are available
- anyone ever fitted an other (thicker) swining arm into his bike

Cheers,

Thomas

Did you reinforce the frame?
With such a wheel travel, you might be tempted to go the road less travelled
with all the jolts, shakes and risks to said frame.
My $0.02

I've duscussed that issue with a framebuilder, but there's no need to with proper suspension on the bike, means no stress on the frame, all the bumps holes rocks are simply gone

Many tenere frames broken like my frame. It's place is very weak and must be strength.

Punch or drill a hole in the nozzle thats connected to the top of your fuel tank, (where you fill up) it buys you another free 4 liters, so you'll be able to take a total of 30 litres, African queens sell rear fuel tanks for around 900 euro's, for Africa twins, but i'm having mine done by a friend for a case of beer, make sure to replace your emulsion tubes every 40000 clicks, and have the floatbowls in your carbs checked and corrected to factory specs, they are ussually not at proper height, aftermarket muffler is what the bike really likes as well, Lazer or Arrow PD are the right ones, i've fiddled with an aluminum swingarm, but like the steel ones better, only 2kg weight difference, mine scale's at around 175 kg's now.

Blimey, where did it loose all that weight.

175kg's is cool, I want it too...

Thanks for all the advice !

Do u happen to have a picture of where i need to make that exta hole in the tank? Don't want to mess anything up ;).

I was familiar with the xrv fuel tanks, but wondered if anyone made them for the XTZ. I'll give the carbs an overhaul and check the valve clearance (not been done for over 50 000kms), so hopefully it will become less thirsty ;).

Just mailed haan wheels, would like an excel front as well (to match the rear :P) and put on a set of more dirt oriented tyres on this set (keep the stock set with the anakees).

Will post some pics up in the comming weeks, since i'm waiting for some new parts to arrive :).

Cheers

Filling her up makes it easier too.

Cheers

had a few questions that it looks like were generated by this thread.

For those that don't know I own Raidxtreme and help run XTZ750.com.

I have taken a step back from the forum and now have little to do with it on a day to day basis consentratiing on the business as the forum is currently run with a strict non-commercial content policy .

The up shot is I no longer post any technical content about our work to the forum, I no longer post updates on our parts and I no longer answer technical questions that could in any way be connected with the products or services made by my business hence the disappearence of information on the forum.

All the parts we make, our development ideas and the coverage of rally-raid to the UK is on our website, the development of Super Ténéré parts is still on going and expect it to be for a year or two more. At this time we either stock, 'manufacture to order' or are in the process of developing the below list and more for the XTZ...

WR/YZ USD conversion kit (bolt on)
WR/YZ/XTZ ohlins steering damper kit (bolt on)
WR/YZ USD based big brake kits (295mm and 335mm)
XTZ rallye dash system (accepts IMO, roadbook, gpsr etc)
XTZ long throttle cables (for 850cc or USD conversion)
XTZ HD one piece loom
XTZ 850cc and 900cc conversion kits
XTZ 'marathon bike' frame strengthening kits
XTZ caliper rebuild kits
XTZ oem and oversize replacement discs
XTZ rallye bodykit (grp, Kevlar and CF options)
XTZ rad guards
XTZ headlight guards
XTZ chain, sprocket and disc protection
XTZ rallye bodywork protection
XTZ rally exhaust system
XTZ rallye ally swing arm
XTZ HD chain and sprocket kits
Various crash bars, stands, racks etc
etc etc etc



we are also developing other parts that may or may not be offered for sale like a new XTZ HD frame, an XTZ 'quad' conversion kit and much more. I hope to have 3 bikes built by the end of the year for use in competition next year to put all our bits to test

all the best Jenna

Fancy you popping up here .

You might want to see if a repeat post in Vendors would attract some business as well.
