My KTM 690 Rally moto bike has a $25 Timex Ironman watch attached to its handlebars.

These guys are so inspiring... I love watching the Dakar bikes fly through all that sand!! These guys are seriously talented and very tough to do that for 17 days.

I think I may have hit the jackpot today, and scored the Holy Grail ....the elusive 78mm stroker crank.....

And the twat-waffle piloted superior veh made it to stage 6 on the 11Jan2007 and the this;

there is a yellow buggy in the distance and as we get closer
we see bits of buggy generally scattered across the racing line and
then we see the remnants of the buggy with Ron Bailey standing by it
scratching his head.

Thats good shit there.

Love these bikes, I want one. more pics plz

I wasn't going to go into this until later on.

But, for what I am expecting to do with the bike, longevity and reliability are more important than peak HP. A 75HP 613cc monster does me no good when I'm looking at a holed crankcase in the middle of the Vizcaino Desert.

The stock bore 525 (510cc) motor with a stroker crank (78mm) gives a swept volume of 552cc. That is, IMHO, the magic compromise of power/torque and reliability that I am looking for in this bike.

Gaspipe, this is a portion of motor-magic I'm also unfamiliar with .... not sure if it's appropriate for this thread, but I'm looking to learn more about it. If I started a separate thread in the Garage dedicated to stroke/crank lengths, and the various stresses (problems) vs. gains (advantages) of different ratios, would you enlighten us there about it - or is here sufficient?

I have an older DR that might have an aftermarket crank (as it had an aftermarket piston (ARIAS)) and I broke the piston - so I'm trying to determine if I need to replace the crank as well.... but of course, want to generally learn the concepts as well.
