headlight connector

The model and part number of the headlight connector for those wanting to play around up there.

I can't do anything else until I get the fork mount (which Rally Raid have happily agreed to help me with) and the light mount so for now I sit the Liger sits tight.

The Easter weekend here in Sydney was amazing weather so I took a GSXR 1100 out for a spin

Wow.....you're doing such an awesome job dude! Seriously....there are a lot of people out there doing "builds" and are just making a hash of things, but this project is coming along real nice....lots of subtle classy touches.

Might as well rename the bike "Jesus" after the resurection its had.

Good on yer!

I know I know I'm starting to feel bad that this is in the ride report forum instead of the build forum. Soon mate

Cheers man. Less is more is what I'm trying to go for and make it as bullet proof as possible. A fair bit of trial and error has gone into it but the final product should pay off.

It's about time I ended the radio silence and posted bit of an update.

As some parts come off, others go on. I fitted a Barrett slip-on exhaust, built right here in Oz just around the corner from where I live.



I was going to leave the standard exhaust on to keep the authorities happy but seeing it lying there on the floor I couldn't resist the temptation Maybe I'll post a video of this in action.

An MSC Ralle Moto steering dampener filled my post box, another aussie product.

The plate that fits to the head stock underneath the bars is made of 10mm (could be wrong, I'm going off memory here) billet so it lifts the bars by that much.



The ignition had to come off in order to fit a piece.



A piece had to be cut in order for it to fit around the dampener.



Very neat





I had the 20mm Touratech bar risers fitted but I always felt to hunched over on them. In the pic above you can see I've fitted some Rox risers which combined with the 10mm or so on the dampener mounting plate the height is perfect

A pair of Barkbuster VPS plastics. The Storm ones I had on it were left behind in Tajikistan in our rush to get to the border, but these ones look more trick anyway I think. Bah to the cold. Also some Acerbis fork seal socks.



The filter over the stepper motor was a retarded idea so I added some curtains instead.



These sit perfectly around the shape of the engine on two sides (front and ride hand side) which should prevent the bulk of dust getting into the arm. The rivets were pulled through two washers and it sealed tight. I could have added silicon to further dust proof it around the rivets but I don't think it's necessary.











One reason for the rebuild taking so long was waiting on the headlight mounts from a machinist because at full lock it brushes against the forks. After 3 weeks of waiting I gave up and fitted it by spacing it out from the forks and up using stiff rubber. I used stiff rubber because I don't want the headlight shaking too much and blow the globe.



And fitted the fender temporarily using cable ties to see how it fits together. It's a perfect fit like it was designed for this bike.

Remember the guy in Kazakhstan tried stealing the bike and broke the fender? The brake line catching on the knobbies was the only reason I could run after and catch the guy



It was plastic welded back into place which got us through the trip. It had to be done because the brake line sat across the wheel



I cut the two fork guard pieces off it and hand rolled a piece of 2mm aluminium into the shape of the guard to reinforce it.





All loaded up and off to get the safety inspection and full service done. As it's an import and never registered in Australia it needs a safety inspection done, so I figured if I asked a Triumph technician to check it and do a full service it would be more likely to pass.



You can see it's not completely ready. The brake line isn't passed through the guide near the wheel. I just fashioned two of them (one for each line) out of some fencing wire.

The fender is sitting low because it's only tied on with cable ties for now. I was hoping to hear back from Rally Raid by now but nothing as yet. I have the design I just need someone to machine it



I was in such a rush to get it off for the inspection I forgot to take some shots of the cockpit. It looks bloody incredible.





There are still a couple of final touches before I can say "I'm done" but I'm stoked with how it's turned out so far. I'll re-upholster and lower the seat (the bike sits taller now with the stiffer suspension), attach the fork mount and of course mount the lada badge

Not bad for a garage build if I must say so myself.
