They used my stock pan and covered it with the gripper top and carbon sides. Love it! Here it is on the bike...

What stock pan did you use? Regular or low seat? If so, how's the height compare to your original?

I used the original height pan. It measures 5" from the bottom of the pan (Right above the upper shock mount) to the flat portion of seat.

The owners manual doesn't give the coolant capacity. How much for a full flush and fill?

Thanks.

Look at the index on this thread. It has all of the specs for that.

I looked and didn't see it. It has oil, tires, sprockets, etc. but I didn't see anything on coolant capacity.

Broken radiator



Last Friday, on a single track (near Jerusalem) the bike fell out of the track (I found my self on this bush, however my bike found this evil rock, which got straight to the radiator.
I'm looking for replacements, weather its other made (maybe Aprilia can fit ?) or just other makers which are not BMW.
As for now, there is only one used radiator on eBay from a guy in Italy who ask for same amount of money as I would buy it new from the Israeli BMW dealer.

Thanx

Pace radiators in the U.K. make a bigger rad for the Xchallenge, it's not listed, and, I'm sure it won't be cheap, but it's an alternative. http://www.paceproducts.co.uk/public...hp?productID=6

Can you explain your fork conversion? Looks like the shivers axle and the BWM hub?
