Oh, and you guys think your lights suck . I am powering mine off of a circuit meant just to run a solenoid on the carb.
That's awesome! I want one

I can help you. It's not that hard.

You can buy mine if you want it . I like it a lot, but I am getting in the mood for another project, and I can always build another.

If you get one of the two strokes with a powerjet carb(bike will have 12V DC and a regulator/rectifier), you can get away without buying a lighting stator. I have enough light to be legal, but I wouldn't try riding with it at night.

These are the bikes with the powerjet carb:
RM 250 99-08, KX 250 98-07, KX 125 99-00, CR 250 97-98

Anything under 300cc with a clean vin is no problem to plate.

I just got back from my trip to the Trans Lab Hiway, and wow, what an adventure. We started the trip by taking in the motocross national in Southwick, Mass. From there, it was to the coast, were we picked up Rt.1 and hugged the coastline all the way up to Calais, Me, were we crossed into New Brunswick, Canada. We rode some of the Bay of Fundy shoreline into Nova Scotia and up to Cabot Trail.

We took an eight hour ferry ride from NS to Newfoundland. We toured around the island for a couple of days and headed up the Northern Peninsula were we took another ferry across to Labrador. Here, we picked up the Trans Lab. It was a three day ride across Labrador and Quebec, and back to civilization. We worked our way down the St. Lawrence river, were we crossed back into Me. We crossed Me. into NH, and Vt, were we headed south and picked up Rt.13 and back home.

We were on the road for two weeks. Along the way, we saw moose, bald eagles, and a couple of critters that I'm not sure what they were. We saw some of the most spectacular scenery the planet has to offer. I lost count of the icebergs. The Trans Lab? A real wilderness experience. Just a road, were the quality ranged from, half decent, to, WTF, cut through the interior with no signs of inhabitation for hundreds of miles.

If you're planning on doing this trip, you'd better do it soon. West of Goose Bay, they're paving it as fast as they can. I've done a couple of cross country trips. They were both great rides. But this was more than a great ride, It was a true adventure.

What diameter? I did a quick look on the web and did not find it. The DL650 uses 7.48 mm. I have 4 2.35 and 3 2.55. I'll trade but am home with a detached retina waiting for surgery Monday.

I forgot to mention....

If you decide to undertake the throttle body synch on the VStrom yourself, I've got a Twinmax you can use.

Glad to find a home for the parts....and nice to meet you two!

Pix are coming. My computer skills are pretty limited, so I've got to figure out how to post them.

So jealous!!! I was all geared up for this trip 2 years ago, and then we turned up pregnant. So my trip was put on hold.

Question, what the longest stretch you had to go between fuel stops? What type of fuel range do you need?

We fueled up in Port Hope Simpson and took it all the way Goose Bay. It was around 260 miles. I had to add a gallon of fuel to my GS, my partner never added fuel to his KLR, but he did go to reserve. We could have went up into Cartwright and refueled there, but we figured we were ok to keep going. For sure, you need an extra gallon of fuel on hand.
