Nav tower

I know everyone is probably sick of the nav tower, but I finally committed to drilling the spacer holes!

I'm not sick of it mate, I'm one of those guys who likes to read and see pics of every detail, especially when it comes to work as tidy as yours is.

Mistakenly thought this was the other 790 build that I had already seen. Opened it to make sure and presto, all sorts of wonderfulness!

Excellent build and don't worry about overposting about the nav tower. Want to see everything that it takes!

This is my third subscription to one of your threads -- stop it
Beautiful tower! You are very talented for this sort of thing. I can't imagine what you would be able to come up with if you used a plasma CNC machine, 3D printer, and sheet metal and tubing benders.

Carry on! Excellent work!

This view I like. And clearances work too.

Thanks and thanks for the idea. You'll see in a moment why the seals probably won't work on this project.

Nav tower

The screen is set more vertical and I like it better.


Nav tower series is about done. Just have to figure wire/cable routing and then it's 790 break in!

Break in

Just got back from the beginning of a Motoman break in! Braaww, braaww, braawww! Then it started raining and rush hour traffic was sucking. Needless to say I am cold, wet and happy! The new front end is sooo much nicer, forks are firmer, bars are taller. Can't wait to see how it handles offroad. Did I mention it is taller? I can finally stand up comfortably, the BRP/Scotts submount with Pastrana FMX bars works for me!


I've got my Innovate wideband air/fuel gauge mounted temporary. Pretty interesting to watch while riding around. Expected it to show I was running much richer than it does. Says around 11 while running, 16.8 is just after it was shut off.


The 790 definitely has more torque all over, may have clutch slipping problem now.

Very, very cool, great build thread.

How tall are you? RMZ front end + BRP mounts + Pastrana FMX bars equals one big DR.

DisTech, did you calibrate the LC-1? It needs to be calibrated, otherwise it will show random things. Also, if you connect to it using your laptop, you can adjust the range it reports on.

Yes, calibrated in free air it read 22.4 like it should. 16.8 was just odd because I had just turned the bike off and wheeled in inside. Gonna ride with it for a while, still think it's jetted to rich.
