XR900R dual sport progress report......

I'm in the process of replacing these

With something that's starting life, like these

I'm replacing the stock guages with these

I'm strengthening this

With a bunch of stuff that looks like this

I'm replacing the stock pegs with these

Which will be extended to look like these

I've got a good friend turning both of these into one that's a bit longer

I'm taking pieces and chunks of these

And these

And a muffler design very similar to this

Which will eventually look something like this

I'm making shiny, new brake lines using these

That same good friend is modifying this

And this

So I can eliminate the oil cooler and run one of these

I'm going to chop up these to make one longer one

I'm building a few of these to cover those very expensive calipers

I built this from various parts of four other Showa shock models

And I had to "add" this to get the KTM triple trees to fit

Some awesome ideas there, Byrdman!! I was thinking of doing the same thing with the muffler on my Baja Bandit, with 16"s of ground clearance it'd be nice to just stick a muffler under there like a Buell and clean up the side of the bike. I've got an old Flowmaster that looks to be a good fit.

do you really want hard lines on that oil filter relocation anyway? Your not worried about vibration weakening of the metal line?

Consider in your planning that the under sump exhaust will mean an under water exhaust in creek crossings. Otherwise, this is a cool project
