Do you have any suggestions for covering the fuel hose connector?
Thanks for the fast response.


You might have to get a little creative there, maybe a heavy-duty small baggie cable-tied around the end, but that's an ugly kluge.

The connector brand is "CPC" PLC Series http://www.colder.com

The best and safest way to plug a quick-disconnect is with another CPC quick disconnect.




Motion Pro sells the white ones and they are resold at Amazon, Motorcycle Superstore, etc.

Colder sells all kinds of cool quick-connectors

oooh, metal ones...



And so on...



You can order a set and use one end, a bit of hose and use a proper hose plug from the hardware or auto parts store.

Many BMW shops carry the same CPC quick-disconnect fittings in stock and in black (white or black or metal are interchangeable). Maybe you can buy just the one end from a BMW dealer.




Update: I see that CPC sells just a plug in the PLC series, just the ticket. But where to get them...



Well turns out Husaberg sells a washdown plug kit that has one of those little bad-boys in there...

Found the solution for a nice quick fix. the lid off a sharpie find permanent marker makes for a awesome dust cover. Thanks for the info Cyborg, I'll buy the female side and make a plug. The metal ones are way sexy!

Hey guys,

Does anybody happen to have a seat they are not using any more? Been looking in the Flea Market for a few weeks without success. The pan only is fine as well, it will be shipped to a rather well known seat guru in the US anyway...

Thanks,
Lukas

Can anyone tell me what the ID/OD (Inside diameter/Outside diameter) of the fuel line is? Well, I guess I can easily get the OD...

Using my high powered reading glasses I measured:

OD: 14mm or 9/16"

ID: 8mm or 5/16"

Be sure and use EFI hose....I bought mine at NAPA for $4 / foot. And EFI hose clamps.

Dakar starts in 2 days and there's a bunch of Bergs in it this time! It's going to be an epic race! 450cc is the max displacement allowed this year for all riders.

Berglund's bike is amazing!

Hope the blue bikes perform well this year. Got a few fast guys riding them.

I'm kinda pulling for Manuel Lucchese - such a privateer effort. Hope they all do well though...

Manuel is really running on a shoestring. The kid is amazing having gotten as far as he has on the bare minimum. One of my buddies in Seattle, Jeremy LeBreton, Pres of AltRider, and who rides a FE390, met Manuel at their booth at EICMA in Italy this year. Manuel impressed them enough that Jeremy personally hand-built in the 11th hour the Dakar bash-plate Manuel is running, literally in less than a week and sent it direct to Manuel in SA because his bike had already shipped from Europe! So Manuel had to install a never-seen-before bash plate (critical to his passing Tech) that had been designed remotely without knowing exactly what low-pipe Manuel was running. Talk about hanging it all out there Jeremy also talked Shorai into donating a few batteries to Manuel, so they sent him 4 batteries. I had a few emails with Manuel about electrical issues on his bike, but I couldn't help much from so far away.

You can see the skid-plate here, tool carrier on other side:

I'm definitely cheering for Manuel along with our US guys!

Thought I should share a little video from Xmas Eve. I cut a new path of single track in my Uncle's woods for something to do and burned a few laps while everyone else hung by the fireplace. Forgive the coughs, I was sick at the time:loll The ground was frozen in spots, which made it interesting at times:loll

Nice little loop you have there, Cranky. You have the right idea, building a 2 minute loop and riding it for hours sure beats a fireplace any day in my book.
