I was just thumbing through the Capanord thread and saw this

Does that not look like the perfect rear wheel for a storm?

Pretty popular with the KTM adv guys who want a 17/19 setup. I spoke to the guys at woodys wheels and from memory they had done a few. The hubs are different than the GS ones and you have less problems with them apparently. I looked around for a set but had no luck. I figure its a great idea limited by availability.......but if a set was found, rock on!!!!!!

What was really cool is the forks were extended by 100mm and the back raised by 65mm to give extra ground clearance. Didn't really affect handling. I was quite happy with the result but sad that I couldn't finish the project.

There lies the perfect bike.
Wheels, suspension, weight, carrying capacity, highway worthy, dirt worthy, reliable, fuel range, cheaper than a GS800.

Man, Suzuki were so close. I now feel they put the wossy plastic on there for the street guys and wanted the dirt guys to pull em off.

Ok, heres the rough idea I had regarding the headtube. GlitchOZ ground his original bracket of the frame similar to the one that is shown in the pic. Well he didn't grind it all off, a bit was left for the steerer stop (hope you don't mind me referencing you glitch ). I have added a headtube with ???? dimensions just to show the plan.......thats about all I can do at the moment so I'll keep the theoretical ideas coming.


I am actually enjoying finding problems that the design via computer is helping me find......who would of thought the millions or billions spent on CAD would actually work.......

I'd prefer to be getting my hands dirty but its fun regardless

Found a new toy in the solidworks program that I am using. It in theory can calculate mass. So by adding the components the total becomes 1kg. (using 7075 alloy - 2730 kg/m^3)

But the hitch is when I add all the calculated volumes up and then multiply it by specific mass I get 1.4kg. If anyone can shed light on this one let me know but for now I'll take the heavier one as a guide.

Which means that the light bracket as already lighter that the stock one (2.3kg). Now i know since the bike standard without fluids is 189 its not much but its up high and out the front. Its about as far from centre as you can get. Also I hope using a WR headlight unit with upgraded wiring I'll get a decent light output and lose some weight there as well, plus fairings (although at the moment thats definitely theoretical), hopefully I can lose about 3 kg from the front instrument area. I figure I may even notice the difference (its a DL).......................

Have you played with the stress tester thingy in solidworks.

I thought it was great fun designing something and then putting stupid amounts of load on it just to see it bend.
