If you are handy with making custom brackets, you can install one of these. Givi A34+D45. Works great for what u r saying.

BIG BIKE & little bike

Just bought a 4RT Montessa/Honda Trials bike. I decided the X country will be just fine for my BIG BIKE. I have Zega boxes, a windshield, and have done many 2000 mile trips with it. I have always been a small bike guy and have missed the fishing trips up single track like I used to do on my old Honda TL250!! I am living the dream. If you are up my way let me know. I have been following this thread for three years, and would like to thank; Drone, Geoffster, Snooker,Barstow,Plumber Mike and all the rest. You saved me money and trouble. The X Country has been a great bike for me and I will continue to ride her for a long time. Bob

You know what? I'm looking for a 4 strocks trial bike at the moment as well. I use my Xcountry for the roads and trails and I love It but I miss the single tracks in the mountains I used to ride about 15 years ago with my trial bikes. Lurking at a honda (montesa) 4rt or a beta evo 4t or maybe scorpa 125 syf.... Only drawback, I wish they make trials bike nowdays with a decent seat!

A guy who lives close to me is selling his XChallenge air shock. Sounds like a deal if you're looking for one! Never seen his bike but I'll have to organize a group meeting of the XC's near me.

Wow - is that really the going rate for an airshock? I just put a Hyperpro on my X today. I figured I could only get $100 or so for the airshock, so I figured I would keep it as a backup. Maybe I need to throw it in the flea market.

dunno the market price, I'd guess somewhere in between the 2 but I'd pay a lot more than $100 for sure, if I needed one.

Couldn't sell one for $200 last year,that price was too high. SO I think there a quite a few sitting around in the garages of Challenge owners.

I got mine for $100 not a few months ago. That even included shipping. It was on the flea market and I think someone saw it and posted in this thread, which is how I found it.

But it's all about supply, demand, and what the person chooses to ask to begin with, I guess. With no more than a handful on the market at a given time, anything can happen...

Stayin' Alive!

Okay, here's my Stayin' Alive contribution: Anyone have a BMW small shield and bracket that they aren't using and would like to sell?

My Wunderlich's bracket has cracked in so many places that measured by mass, it's more JB Weld and frame-washers/nuts/bolts than aluminum.

(Sadly, the mfg's choice of materials -- bargin basement aluminum bent at severe angles -- has soured me to the point I'm unlikely to ever buy Wunderlich again.)

Been riding with a Cee Bailey during the winter, and while it's all one would expect, it's noisy as all get-out.

If I can't find a BMW at resale prices, I'll start hacking away at the Cee Bailey.

Utterly bad ass, but did you see the prices of the parts for conversion?

Laugh Farkle update

Finally got out for a decent ride. Xtank is a lovely bit of kit. Little bit of a problem with misalignment on the front holes, but nothing that creative assembly would not fix. On a short ride a week ago, the tank would not siphon. Tracked it down to the feed line having a kink in it. Fixed that with a spring on the outside in the area of concern.

Put another spring on the outside because I thought it looked nice

Drained the tank fully, no problems.
Bit disappointed with the HB centerstand, I cannot lift it up onto the stand by myself. If I lean it over, extend the stand and then stand it up it is ok. Rear wheel is about 70mm off the ground. On my old DR650 with an aftermarket stand, it was also difficult (I must need to go to the gym a bit more!) Solved that problem by putting a RHS pillion peg on the LHS and using that as a handle to lift it up. Does not work with the BM pegs though.
I managed to grind a bit off both sides of the stand on yesterday's ride, so I cant send it back! Suspension was fully wound up, so I might need a new shock in the future.I might grind a little bit off the stop to make the stand come up a bit. Anyone give some advice on how much to grind off? I was going to take just a little a time. A lot harder to put it back on! All in all though, happy with the bike, and thats all that matters.
