I have used the hi comp pistons in a R100GSPD and recommend them - good bang for your buck

Have ordered a whole stack of parts, now its a lot of hurry up and wait.....fun fun fun

so far it will have
HPN style frame stengthening
Enduralast / Enduraspark system
Front forks from R100GS but with RR Racetech (HPN type) cartridges
50mm drive extension
Dual plugging - heads will also be flowed and cc'd at same time.
deeper oil pan
complete new wiring harness
new lights/indicators (old ones stuffed)
new starter motor
modified carbs (different float system) plus overhaul
gearbox +5th and -1st gears
oil resistant clutch plate
bottom end balanced etc.......
+every bearing, seal and rubber part that I come across - learnt the hard way, false economy not to.

more photos as the parts come back
Sounds good, look forward to the progressive photo's.

BTW what colour will the frame be?

IMHO keep the tank original white and decals Do you know you can still buy an original orange solo seat and rack, new for less then $1000?

Give Ron Durkin at MAP's a call.

I kept the original forks and went with Promecha gold valves with variable damping and heavier springs(I'm a big unit, tip the scales at over 115kg's) PINA to change, but once set up, no need to play around with it. Run 7.5 w oil

Only bracing I have found needed is the crossbrace on the sub frame. But I'm no longer as bold as I once was.

So you have a ceramic clucth?, I have one sitting on the wall, not convinced its the best for a solo but will probably put it in my R80/1000PD outfit, when I finally get around to rebuilding it

Good luck with your project, and remeber, its only money
Can't take it with you, that's my theory

No, its a marking stick to show the women where the line starts!!!

Well spotted!

Actually it was Ian's idea, the bloody original side stand has been bent, and I don't have the leg length to fully extend it, so this was a temp measure. I rang my house mate in Stratford to take the flick out stand off my Miss Piggy, and it was posted to my motel in Invercargill, where it is now fitted.

So there!

Hi Guys
Yes Ive looked at both 1000cc kits, ive decided to make it the best 800cc I can and if that doesnt work for me then I can get bigger cylinders later (if money allows). The drive extension is thanks to Mr Paul Rooney - thanks Paul.
The bike is being repainted in original colours and stripes and the frame will be black (at the moment) I do like the looks of the white ones but Im not sure it matches the theme of keeping the look original. There is a company in Germany (Siebenrock) that sells the Red (orange) seat covers so you can recover your seats (they call it a "improved remake, no cheap clone") - about 77E delivered to Aust so Ive got one of these - It looks and feels very close to the original - also have a black one (just in case).
I dont know if the clutch is ceramic? Siebenrock just refer to it as oil resistant upgrade (and charge you 50% more)
I also bought a stainless steel crash bars with a sidestand from Boxer supplies in Germany. They claim these are heavy duty and have been 'tested' in the The Heroes Legend Rally. Cant be bother to upload the image to photobucket and then download here but the link to the bars is below.

I just had my seat recovered with the seibenrock red single cover and it looks & feels good. I thought the foam would be cactus but the upholster said it was still ok and probably better than the stuff you get now anyhow. The edges of the metal base were starting to deteriorate and was sharp so they put felt over the metal edges when recovering so it wont damage the new cover.

There is another place in germany that has boxer parts as well as seibenrock. I have not tried them.

Well its Xmas and the posty has been busy.
First up is the R100GS front forks:



and these are to go inside




And of course I then had to get a R100GS front wheel and I also picked up a R1100 front brake caliper so I will need to do a little mod - photos later.

I suppose the most expensive part so far has been the Enduralast system (Alt + ignition) but the HH Racetech front fork cartridges (as above) were not far behind.



Doesnt look like a lot for the money - but the finish does look good (I suppose quality costs.)

I recon the 800 is a nicer engine anyhoo, not as harsh with vibration. A kinder more dignified power output, a discerning gentle man should have all the power he'll ever need with an 800

Right, but as I am slightly raising the compression it will also help with efficient burning of sub standard fuel

first problem

Just a small warning to others.. my first problem arrived when doing the stickers on the repainted tank. I bought a new set of 'Dakar' tank decals off a popular online site. When I tried to put them on I couldnt get the air bubbles from underneath the sticker. I tried several different ways, asked my painter he had the same problems so we went to a well known local vinyl printer/installer.(He does cars/trucks/signs etc) He took one look at it and said dont bother you wont succeed. He basically said the quality/thinness etc of the vinyl makes it almost impossible to get a good finish and he showed me the difference in what they use and what I had bought. Plus he pointed out that they hadnt used UV stabilised 'ink' and that these stickers would fade fairly quickly on a motorbike tank. He has offered to make me some 'proper' ones (as it turns out slightly cheaper than the online set)
