I load the hell out of mine, she has been down numerous times, loaded up through miles of deep sandy whoops, and one very high speed end over end. Maybe I got one of the good ones.









Last inspected a few days ago, no problemo

I'm not sure how much rise there is with the set up as I never saw the stock set up. I would guess the bars are maybe 1-2 inches higher than stock.

Next time I have the tank off I will take a loot at alternate routing - do you remember how you re-routed the choke? From what I remember it was a pretty straight shot with the stock routing.

Dumb question but is it routed through the airbox properly?

I haven't put a rise on mine yet but I noticed the choke is really tight.

Best I can tell the routing was all stock and proper when I had the carbs apart. I guess the under bar damper is enough to cause a problem. Thanks for the feedback. Next time I have the tank off I will double check the routing and see if there is room for improvement. For the time being I expect the bike to run better without the choke partially engaged.

Raid Design Rally Kit for the 950 SE

Im looking for some pictures of the Raid Design Rally Kit for the 950 SE, but with the Safari 30 ltr. Tank. On the side from Raid Design you can order the kit that fits the Safari Tank. But I have never seen any picture of it.

No pictures unfortunately as far as I know of, but maybe someone has the combination of the rally kit and the safari anyway

Quote:
About the 2 versions. The standard version fits the stock tank and can be made to fit the Safari. The Safari version will only fit the Safari (side panels are too short to fit stocker).
I think you should also send a PB to David P. directly or send Raid Designs an email with your question. I think they have used an SE with Safari during the creation of the Safari-friendly version of their kit.

Please share the info/pics you find.

Last I heard they were developing or finalizing the kit, which may explain the lack of images. I believe they've been busy at rallies so communication might be a bit slow.

BENRON,


Did you try a Google advanced search on it?...with "ADV" as the site?

The reason, that I ask, is because there is a thread on it, somewhere (I'm like 90% sure.)



EDIT- I looked-around, man, and couldn't find it. But, I am positive that there is a thread that shows exactly how many were exported to different countries.

Well after fiddling with the fuel pump and checking electronics I loaded the bike and took her off to the dealer, turns out that the front cylinder plug had actually broke! Thankfull that it was nothing serious,the intake valve were also found to be tight(shims)

950 Charging Issues ??

Can anyone help?

I have a 950SE that has died a couple times. It seems like when the bike gets hot having the fan on runs the battery down. First time it happened I put the battery on charge and it seemed to work for a few days then died again. Second time I replaced the battery and put a volt meter on the battery engine off (12.5V) and engine on (+13V) and rev'd (~14.5-15V) depending on throttle input.

All was well for about a month with new battery. Today I went for a two hour ride into the Sierra Foot Hills and was on some back roads that turn into dirt, at the top of a look out I shut the bike off and when I started it back up I noticed the bike started but spun over slugishly. At that point I said ok, don't shut the engine off until I get home so I turned around and headed home. Anyways, as luck would have it I was ~30 miles from home when the bike stalled like someone disconnected the battery. When I pulled over the battery was dead, dash was dim, barely enough electricity to see the dash. With help I was able to jump start the bike and got it home without another problem, actually it ran fine all the way home. At home I checked the battery voltage, engine idling (8.5V) engine rev'd (9.5V). After shutting it down and letting it set for about an hour I checked again and the battery read (10.5V). So, now I've put it back on charge but can't figure out what do do next.

Seems like its a charging issue but also seems like charging system is working because the volt meter reads higher with engine revs as I would expect.

Any suggestions?

1 Where is your volt meter connected to?
2 What is the voltage between your battery + and the frame with the bike running? Should be the same as your volt meter assuming you have another point that you are using for your voltmeter.
3 Have a look at the start relay connection to your battery if the voltages dont correspond.
