Aftre reading many pages on the Adventure Rider forum about the Aussie and USA guys doing 4000km + trips with loaded WR's I'm wondering why its not so popular in SA.

The one guy did a self sufficient 4000km desert crossing. More than 60l of fuel and 20l of water. all that on a WR450F

General Bike Related Banter / Re: Economically adventurizing a EXC 500
« on: April 12, 2018, 09:57:36 am »
I started this thread a while back and it's been really cool to check in every now and then, really learned a lot from everyone that contributed.  Anyhow I'm almost done with kitting out my 500.  It wasn't very economical, but having said that I think that I got awesome value.  I sourced a lot of my stuff from overseas, and then Chris @ FB helped a lot with luggage etc.  For information's sake I will list the prices I paid for the stuff ordered from overseas.  Some minor stuff to do still, like replace / re-inforce the flimsy side stand.  Perhaps for pure adv riding you don't quite need all the protection bits, but I also ride enduro with bike so for that it's critical.

Had our first proper adventure ride in Damaraland two weeks back and there's just no looking back.  For me, this is how adv riding should be, light, nimble, unencumbered and the limiting factor in choosing routes is my abilities, not the bike.


Everything except tank panniers below was sourced from Flying Brick

Altrider Saddlebag Holster System
Rolltop Bag 25L - Asst Colours
Fender Bag Universal - Dirt/Enduro
ATG 30L Backpack
Giant Loop heat shield
Wolfman Tank Panniers - U$95 - eBay
Giant Loop Luggage Clips


Hyde Bash Plate - Flying Brick
Enduro Engineering Rear Disc Guard Protector - U$94 - Amazon
Enduro Engineering Front Brake Rotor Guard - U$98.95 - Amazon
Polisport Swingarm Protector - U$26.99 - Amazon
Polisport Clutch Protector - U$32.99


Hammerhead Shifter - U$31.49 - eBay
KTM Tail Cleanup - U$143.50 - eBay

The shifter is not purely cosmetic, it is also much stronger than the stock KTM one.

Fuel Tank

Acerbis 15.5L - Flying Brick (happy I went Acerbis - see on ADVrider there is a recall out for the IMS tanks)

Some Pics:

Fuel Tank + Tank Panniers

Hammerhead Shifter:

Front and Rear Enduro Engineering rotor Guards:

Giant Loop Luggage Clips

Had to make a spacer and get slightly longer bolts to make these fit.  Works well with the Altrider luggage system

Tail Cleanup:

Highly recommend this - replaces poor quality flickers with LED's and no more floppy plastic shit in the rear.

Clutch Cover and Bash Plate:

Noneking is `n Tannemuis, so hy maak baaaaie geld uit al die klaviertjies wat hy bou uit die tanne. :peepwall:

So, ek wed jou dis of `n Bee-Em1150, of `n Bee-Em1200. en ek reken die adminfooie wat so duur is, is vir die farkles wat hy dink hy gratis bykry.  :3some:
