With the new rule and the available 660 parts, we thought the best plan was to make these frankenbikes. I went into the garage and held some 660 tanks up next to a 525 and that's where it started.

We had some money back then. This year, nada.

Before I forget, use ICW radiator on these bikes rather than the fluidyne ones. Brett will make some cool radiators cheap and you can use wider rather than thicker ones on the rally bikes because you have the room. Wider will cool better. www.icwbikestands.com
And, try a front disc and carrier from a pre-2000 640 Adventure, which was 300mm. Works well on these bikes. The larger discs are too vulnerable to rocks. (You could order the 660 disc and carrier too, same parts, higher price.)

Pedro's first ride:

Pedro broke his kneecap in November before the Rally. I called Jonah, and you probably know the rest.


At the finish, Jonah, Mikey and team.

I'll try to dig up the photos from the original build.

fun fun

Three 660 ralleys lay'n around!!!!

Must be a Westcoast thing.

OK, found some photos of these bikes from the first time around.

I'll post them now: photos of preparing these bikes for the 06 Dakar:
The first time I lined up the 660 parts and decided to go for it.

Charlie,

I really appreciate you taking the time to toss in your two cents here. It's sort of a full circle thing happening now. You started it, and Ned and I have to finish the cycle.

I've spoke to Brett at ICW, and he's got some rads of mine to work with now. Thanks for that head's up!!



Bruce

Ned and Gaspipe; I just read the entire thread and really enjoyed it. I have recently started building my own replica of the first Paris Dakar winner, Yamaha XT/TT500. Keep on keeping on.

It's just a sticker, I've seen them hanging on the walls of KTM dealerships a few times.

Aw Jeff, ya killed the joke....

But that's OK - the motor is going to get some freshening up, since it likely has a couple hundred hours on it.

'pipe...

Are you going to go into the bottom end? Gearbox??

Might be good to replace the valve springs as well as cams for a fresh runner...
