, just trying to raise some capital for the next stage of development[/QUOTE]

I've just put a Safari tank on the Berg, done 200km so far and I can still see fuel in the tank. Quicker and smoother than the XRR and I don't need to kick it. As you can guess I'm not missing the BRP.

Hey Ditchy, no mate, didn't dyno with standard carb. Mine would need a rebuild before taking it to a dyno.
Give you 50 bucks for the stocker carby Doug.

That sounds a bit better mate. We'll work out a ride sometime hopefully.

What's a good upgrade for the headlight guys.

Here in Aus we get the larger UK version but its rubbish.

I've seen the CRFX headlights used sometimes anyone have any info on these and how easy to mount they are?

DC kit looks alright Rick. Im still against messing with my electrical system in the name of reliabilty. Found the LEDs into the dc circuit to be more than adequate thus far.
However, check out the latest purchase. This portable jump starter can start a V8 on its own (tested) but also can charge phones gps etc. Currently running my montana to see how long it lasts. $130.00

you know you could splice a little battery in where you have the leds cut in. when the lights aren't on it will charge the battery. more then enough to run small electrical devices.
saw some thing similar to that jump start pack a couple of weeks ago, amazing how small they are getting

Had the same feeling kn the front of my XCH, had it balanced etc, but didn't fix it.
Solved it immediately by replacing the front 606 tyre, no other tyre I tried on the front made the bike behave like this.
You will find bits like this about the 606 on all kinds of different bikes on the web.
wouldn't fit another if I was being paid to.
