The 2009 X-Country (Yellow) is lower than any of the others. my (Thai) wife can sit the bike ok in standard setup and she is short.

As for tank, I recommend the X-Tank from Erik at Hotrod....here

2 sizes 6.5 litre and 9.5 litre. If you specify its for an X-Country, he makes them slightly differently to allow for the lower rear end.

Front wheel spacer length?

Could somebody give me the precise length of the front wheel spacer (2007 XChallenge)? I seemed to have misplaced it during a tire swap and I need to machine a steel one anyway! I understand the stock aluminum are crap.

All dimensions are welcome but the length of spacer is what I most need.

Thanks,
Ruis

28 mm length for non abs
25 mm is the seal dimension, at the clamp side it tapers out to 30 mm
20 mm axle (hole)

Removing Charcoal Canister

Just got the question from a US client for an Xtank.
At removing the charcoal canister connected to the breather of the fuel tank, can you just disconnect it or has to be some jumpering or tricking done? No idea if this gives a feedback to the ECU and I don't have the plans for the US version

Thank you for your response, Erik. However, my bike is ABS equipped and I see online that there is an ABS and non-ABS version of this part!

Anybody have the measurements for the ABS version?

Thanks advriders...

I got my X used from a fellow on this forum (well-used!) and it just has the canister removed and the wiring disconnected. I don't think jumpering anything is necessary. I've had no problems, anyway...

Cheers Ruis, I'll pass the message

oh and since you're so sweet I took a moment to measure an abs-spacer
Though you could have just subtracted the length of the ABS bracket from my previous measurements of course

Cheers Erik!

Thanks for the dims. Now I just have to find the time to make it...

And I'll have to tell my wife what you said... maybe she's right when she says I'm spending too much time on this site!

I'm pretty sure you just disconnect it from the connector. I'm in Australia ... so no charcoal canister, but I just used the plug which is switched off the battery with the ignition for a source for a relay for switched power for heated grips and a gps, so it's still useful.

Cheers, thinking about it I should have known, I've seen that plug lying idle on several bikes (Guess it's time for holidays or at least some days off, I'm getting a bit numb)

Still kind of lusting after an X-country or X-moto after riding one a few years back.

I do have one thing that really bothered me during that test ride, not having a tachometer in some cases. What are you guys doing for a tachometer (for those who care actually care about not having one)? Just going with something from Trailtech or considering wiring up your own analog tachometer? Does the coil have a pickup for a tachometer? I've tried to research on here for a concrete solution, but I have not seen anyone go in-depth about it; or I might have missed it.

If I were to buy one in the future, I would like to keep the regular speedometer; because it has some pretty good features. I am not particularly a fan of digital speedometers or tachometers, but I could live with it given how well I liked the bike and for what I would be using it for (fireroads, commuting to keep miles off the SV, etc.; nothing crazy seeing as what I have seen 1 case on here of swingarm failure when many small things add up offroad).

Dynojet Powercommander V gets RPM signal from crank sensor wire, located behind rectifier. Don't know does it do some conversions for signal, but it's available. See http://www.powercommander.com/downlo.../eng12-006.pdf
