or use PVC plumbing parts to make one

Excellent, thanks. I'm thinking of a Cruz roll-up tool pouch or equivalent inside a tube. PVC plumbing pipe with waterproof caps might be doable.

I have it in one of my side bags, along with two tubes and my tire levers.

I just got my Twisted Throttle tool tube in the mail yesterday. I'm picking up those rubber coated clamps this morning to mount it to my Wolfman side racks. I have a slightly different idea. I'll post a pic when I'm done

Started my trip yesterday. Heading down the Appelations right now, before I pick up the TAT in a couple of days. Enjoying the bark of the Leo Vince. I dont think it's any more powerful, it does scare the animals away though

Proper trip report soon to commence...

But first, a question for ya (and some answers to others's):

Air Filter = I have a Blue Air Filter, I'll install it tomorrow when I change the oil. Will let you know how it goes.

I was expecting it to be spongey, so i could oil it and squeeze the oil out. However, its solid. How do i oil it then? Just bathe it in oil and let it drip dry? Also, can i use engine oil, or do i NEED special oil?

Here's the filter: http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/mot...e/8120013.html


Tool tube = The Tool Tube Mega (http://thetooltube.com/MegaTube.html). Its 1.5l, 50% bigger than most, and it fits the cruz tool roll perfectly. Plus i cram in the trail stand, 2 tire irons and a leatherman.

On the bike - note the attachment points, most people mount it sideways, mine is mounted across the bars.






Bike Cover = I use the Dowco Ultralight, in Medium. Its small and doesnt go to the ground. The heavier weight Dowco does, but it's not as good to carry with me on the road. So, for home use try the heavy one, to stuff in your panniers try the small one. Link here: http://www.revzilla.com/product/dowc...torcycle-cover

On the bike:

Thanks for checking it. I couldn't think of any reason it wouldn't so I ordered it last night. I appreciate your help!

Now if it would stop snowing in MN....

Spare Bulbs

Off to France next week which means I have to carry a spare set of bulbs...

I am getting a little confused regarding the tail/brake lamp. The riders manual says P25-2 and the internet generally agrees that you can use a 1157, 2057 or a 2257. However I am struggling to locate them in the UK. The Philips website says it is a P21/5w??

I can find the P21/5w here, dose any one know if it is the correct bulb?

Yepp, the 21/5 is the right one for European Sertao's.
(Rück-/Bremslicht: P25-2 mit 12V/5-21W)

My trip went well, let me just say, I hate sand...
Camp.



Panorama of the area.



Our local Land Cruiser group helps out for "Cruise Moab" by hosting a 3 day camp and trail run, I help out in camp and for that I get to help tech. In vehicles.
And...
Build a stage.



Listen to live music and enjoy a camp fire.





And get free beer!



It was a great trip, drove just under 500 miles, camped at Lone Warrior in the San Rafael Swell, drove home through Buckhorn Wash on the way out.
The reason I hate sand? I was making good speed(35-40mph) through the dirt road from I-70 towards camp when I hit some silty sand, which caused me to slow down considerably before it stopped me dead, and tossed me off, I'm still new to this whole dual sport thing, and I loved every min. of it, my shoulder hurt like hell for the couple days we were there, but by yesterday it felt better.
I packed WAY more than I needed, That being fuel and clothes, I made it the whole way home on a single tank of gas, the gas light had turned on once I hit I-15 near Provo, I was able to make it the final 45 miles to home before I filled up, however it only took 3.8 gallons.
I have a gopro video of me coming off, but I need to figure out how to edit it as the video is 28 min. long, I also have some 130 gopro pics of the drive to and from.

The rest of my pics are here if any of you wish to view them, nothing too crazy.

I forgot to mention, I added some $20 foot pegs to the crash bar.





They worked out great!
I guess one not so bad thing about dumping it in sand is there is no real damage

I hear different manufacturers make different lengths springs for the same bike. The rest is taken up by the spacers.

Thank you, appreciate it.

Stock spring 552mm

Stock spacer 60mm

Combined spring and spacer 612mm

Awesome, thank you! My Hyperpro springs are 542mm and the instructions say to use the original 60 mm spacer. The reason I went with the Hyperpro was that it is the only company that specifically lists springs for the Sertao. Werth is not much help since their website is in German. Progressive lists only the Dalkar. I called them and they said they don't know about the Sertao. I know you you used the Dakar springs and it works. But just for kicks, I checked the original part numbers for Dakar and Sertao springs and they are different, while many other parts between the two bikes have same part numbers.

Also, looking at your pictures, there is a bigger difference in lengths between the OEM and the Progressives. Hyperpro is within 10mm.

I am waiting for steering damper from Australia. When it comes, I'll install the damper and the springs. I will report, when I do.

Thanks for your help!

Indeed. And I'm glad you didn't get too damaged in the get-off.

Thanks!
Yes, it was a great time as usual
I was a little unnerving to say the least, I'm certain all the weight I was carrying didn't help, once it got a little squirrelly all the weight just helped it over.
I'm glad I was wearing my armored jacket and pants not to mention my helmet.
Once I get a chance at editing that video I will upload it and post it.
I did go wash the dirty girl today, then went for a short ride, it was a glorious day!
