My goals for this project:
<350lbs wet
fuel injected
6 speed
Reliable
Plenty of travel
200mi range
Slanted toward dirt
Minimum of 2 cylinders
<$3000
I like your goals except for "Minimum of 2 cylinders" for me it'd be max 2 cyl.
Ok, I'm curious what did the wet weight turn out to be?

Get your tools out. Cheap 650r

I'm down to 2 bikes as this one does everything well.

Dry weight is just under 360lbs.

It does need some protection Last week in Va

when you order a new cover and gasket, get the two small alignment dowels also. sometimes you can wiggle them loose and reuse them, but sometimes not.

Bought used one from ebay for <$20. I'm going to add some al or ss plates to the side cases. The side case is structurally sound but susceptible to punctures.

We were able to get the side cover off for repair without damaging the gasket.


No leaks

build report

Right on, nice build report. I'm glad to hear that she's working out for you, I'm really starting to enjoy mine as well...... It should be nice once all of the details regarding setup are worked out, and the refinements are done [if ever]...... Do you ever plan to head out west ?

The shock is off a cbr 600, pressed the bushing/bearing out of the ninja shock and shaved a bit off the trunnion to make it fit.

Recent update:
Added topcase mount which now holds givi racks. Rox risers

well i picked mine up today:

woodswizard said "you'll be riding it this afternoon" he was right




i put some dirt handle bars on but still wasn't close to good for any kind of standing position. do you guys stand at all? i would need about 8-inch higher bars or 4 inch lower pegs

off topic but i guess the speedo runs of tranny sensors? where is the bike's odometer data stored? a brain or in the clocks? my clocks are dead

Great pic with the grinder n bike

Yes on standing, 2" rox risers are no problem with stock cables stock KTM Magura bars, MFW lowered footpegs.

The stock speedo runs off a pickup on the counter sprocket shaft. Running the stock gearing (15/46) an 18" rear with knobs it is +-1mph per GPS.

Not sure on ODO storage, I'd say it's in the gauge pod.

What plans do you have for your new beastly?

i got it to follow your recipe, i already have most of the ktm stuff off my other bikes. I need to get it salvage inspected first so i think i'll do a bare minimum and go piece by piece. i need to ride it around to see if i like the motor etc.

i see the other mutants trying to go with 19 inch fronts and i'm just wondering what the ideal wheel setup is. 18/21, 18/19, 19/19?

the bulbous fuel tank bothers me, maybe i can grind it down...

ps i had never been to a horrible freight store before that day, i was giddy and disgusted at the same time trying to resist the mini lathe urge now
