625 SXC Build (Also in Aust regional)

Thought some "Foreigners" might like to see an Aussie Thumper.

After years of building my brothers rally bikes I thought I’d knock one up for myself as I only have spare time at the moment to ride to and from work, which is a rather nice ride anyway.

So, here she is….

Started out as a dead standard 2007 (Last of the LC4 Carburetted engines with a 42mm Mikuni Flat slide) with 6000k's on the clock.

18L Safari Tank
SM Pro Plantum hoops 2.5” rear and 1.85” front laced with triple butted spokes to RADMfg Billet cush drive rear and billet front hubs.
Ti Akropovic silencer
Scott steering damper
Scott billet sub mount anti- vibration mount kit
18mm billet triple clamps
48mm SXS forks re valved
320mm Oversized front rotor
2013 brake kit complete with folding lever
HDB hand-guards with LED indicators
BONZ billet hand-guard mounts
Mecasystems Dakar front navigation tower with dual 35Watt Bosh HID kits (Thanks JayBo!!!)
Custom billet roadbook holder (Now with Garman Dakota 60x)
Custom billet LED lighting mount and LED lights
Billet HDB rear signal indicators
B&P Alu bash guard

















Yep, I did find the original too tall, took to it with the slitting grinder and dropped the front faring by 100mm and made it narrower to see through. MUCH better!!!
Lowered the navigation tower as well. All up it is is still 20KG lighter than a bare 690 but about 20kg heavier than a 450EXC.

It's no single track monster like a well set up WEC bike is, but it is still a joy to blast ST on plus it will cruse on 130kph all day and get 250k's to a tank when riding conservatively. I have a 6L fuel bladder that straps to the rear luggage as well for long transport stages giving me 300+ K's.

The motor is a jewel, electric start, it does vibrate more than a XC4 motor but nothing like the "Lonely housewife's best friend" which some poorly set-up big bore single are accused of.

All in all, It puts a big fat smile on my face when I roll out in the morning and after all, anything more than that is just showing off.

Nice work!

What are the small LED lights you are using?

What did you do to wire in the HDB LED signals? I ask this because when I bought my HDB set up, Paul at HDB advised me against using the LED's??

Thanks
