btw here is a pic of the piston oil jets in my 2005 model. The external oil line branches from the cartridge filter to a banjo bolt for the first (RHS) jet, then around the front of the engine to the second jet (LHS).

Ya know, I kinda like that bash plate!

I'm going the other way; enduro-ising my Adventure:





LC4 Enduro 12L tank, shrouds and seat all simply bolt on. I left the fuel pump in place, as that was quicker than removing/plugging all the gaps. The shrouds needed only a HH Collar Screw to replace the existing radiator louvre lower mount. The headlight mask sits outboard of the shrouds by around 50mm, is held in place just by the screws either side of the headlight, and the 4 rubber connections to the dash panel.

The seat height is lower, and the narrowness at the knees is appreciated. It's very noticeable tipping the bike in to a turn - feels much more like a dirt bike than a behemoth, right up until the landing

(Will do a proper write-up later.)

2 year checkup

I had a fuel fire riding in the desert near randsburg a month ago a heart racer but was able to pile dirt and camelback water to get it out.. (check your fuel lines!) SO, it is now time to once again fix her up a bit... no problems to note but some expected oil leaks.. and I do burn a little oil but have ridden it hard for the last two years including a few gnarly desert races.. so far I will be doing my follower bearings, weld the tab for a radiator mount , Paint the tank and faring, new wiring harness... maybe finally get a second headlight .. oh yea ...and do a new nav mount for lights and roadbook as I am racing the Australian Safari in September!!!... I am so stoked! So this will be interesting.. do I do some motor work too?? MAYBE but she will defintitly look different!



here we go again..

mostly smoke damage, a vent hose and some of the harness sheath started burning thru

faring ready for paint!

have a family autobody shop.. I prep sanded and they primed and painted few coats of single stage white... was going to go with the blingy sparkle like the late adventures only in white but I know it will be thrashed in a year or two like the silver did.. Have some carbon fiber guards coming .. now for a logo.. and to order some follower bearings, rings, harness and a rally cam.

Running em on my honda 450x now for a few races .. work great.. cant beat the price and if you bend a stocky it will cost 50-75 to fix and its still stock and weak.. they are thicker a little more volume and have a flat plate as opposed to the pressed thin guage siding making it hard to bend.. I am actually checking over the blueprints for the company to ensure they spot on.. one of mine actually were off a little bit possibly the fins were set in a little off or there was a slight twist from all the welding on these with all the mounts etc.. Still they come with a cap and ASI has a rep somewhere in Florida and also make car rad's and intercoolers. Their name is actually Auto sourcing international and sell in AU too. I would buy em even if they didnt support me.

Laramie I am going to need your jetting for fcr 39 I think..finally tired of the BST dont go up and down now living in the high country.. and have been riding with em on the yz250f and the 450x so im comfortable with em now especially with an adjustable leak jet and mods on the spring and diaphram.. so now to find a used one!

Nice looking set of carbon fiber parts wrk . What's your initial impression of the skid plate . Been looking for something to replace the stock plate on my 640a.

Held up, but I don't go rock hopping or stump jumping. Some big sounding rock hits over the years, but the worst was probably trying to put the bike up on my work stank w/out removing it (heard a crack... )

Never understood the race reasoning on a bike with this much HP; you've found it really matters? Like with the aluminum sprockets - worth the longevity hit?
