Very Nice. Good info. I'll be following you as well. I just got mine, '05, and have some work to do on it, but nothing to this level. Curious, what kind of top case mount do you have and how do you like it? Solid? Thanks. bg

No, unfortunately I don't have a sound bite of the exhaust. But I have contact with the current owner, so I will ask.

It is an AirAge(made by Gerrie Anassis in Pretoria, RSA) that I did the design of for the inlet and outlet caps. I was given the pipe as a thank you.

I didn't like it to noisey so I left the insert in. It also had a slight whistle when letting the throttle go.
I could also make the bike backfire on demand. Excellent for ignorant cagers when filtering through traffic(which is allowed in RSA)

On my current bike I have a std bmw plate. On my old bike I had a custom plate that I made up to fit the R1200GS top box that I put together from 3 accident damaged boxes.

The spares are in

So all my spares have arrived(bearings, seals, OEM parts from MAX BMW) So will now start with the assembly process.
$700 in 2 ziplok bags.

Also in the process of designing a set of YZ/Dakar hybrid triple clamps



Anyone know where I can find spare time available?
It is the only part of the rebuild I seem to be having trouble with!

Update

So I finally got some time in the garage.

We had a bit of a fitting session today. She will come apart again for the engine to go in.
Some small issues where the powder coating is thicker than the original paint. So tight fitting bearing races needed gentle persuasion.






All new bearings and inner races, seals, dust covers and swing arm protector. Also new brake hose clips.
I buffed up all the bolts and nuts.

Coming together nicely and I am really pleased with the all black look.
One thing I would like to add is a rubberising protective paint onto certain surfaces of certain parts.
Anyone got any ideas. It's going to have to be TOUGH!

Next in line is to service the engine. Checking valve clearances, water pump sprockets and clutch at the same time.
I also need to clean the dirt stains off the engine. I haven't had any luck with what I have available.

Watch this space.

Unfortunately yes. If I had a choice it would be another colour.
Budgetry constraints

I was told many years ago that purple was the colour of the sexuallly frustrated

How do you find the time? I noticed there are baby/babies around.
Great pics. As far as the rebuild goes looks like the biggest find was the swing arm bearings, right?
Keep up the awesome build looking forward to the final machine.

There may be a choice, I got a black spring, but had to ask.

Water pump replacement and motor in

Two realy late nights(early mornings) and the motor is in the frame.

When I bought the bike, in the assortment of spares was a water pump replacement kit.

I thought while I had the motor out I would just have a look.

Took the pump cover off and played with the impellor a little bit.
Moving it forward and back there was definately "click into position" feel.
So I stripped her down


Old left - new right. You can see the 2 shiny rings on the shaft. But I couldn't feel them.

The shaft could most probably have gone a bit further, but fukkit, I changed it.
The shaft now moves smoothly in and out.



The plastic gears looked untouched


Putting the motor in was actually easier than I thought. Just a little awkward at time doing it on my own


The corner office is looking a little more respectable again


Next up.....
Wiring loom
wheel bearings
sub frame

I also need to finish the frame parts in Solidworks and complete the triple clamp designs
