My petrol pump gave out on our trip. BMW quoted R5800 for the fuel pump assembly. Ordered a replacement in tank pump from Fuel Performance for R1550. Delivered to my door in a day.

Net so  :thumleft:

I do hope they do an Enduro version too with a small tank though. Not that it would be the one I'd want but just to shut the HP2 folk up  :pot:

The Yamaha is the better looking bike no question but I don't buy a bike because of the way it looks. I never even did a sticker kit on my 690 when it was in rally trim. It was purely for function. Maybe it's easy to say because it's so damn ugly but this bike looks 100% function

I get the argument for simplicity in bikes but I can't fix anything anyway. That's someone else's job. I just ride the them :ricky:

I am itching for a bike with a TFT screen. If it happens to break, it's the insurers problem not mine  O0

Carbs are a pain in the arse IMO

Asking prices don't reflect reality. Anything will sell if it's priced right. My 9yo dirt bike sold within an hour after putting it on facebook. Prices some people ask for 10-15 year old DS motorcycles are just ridiculous

KTM LC4 400/610/640 & 690 / Re: Husqvarna 701 - any good?
« on: April 04, 2018, 10:24:16 am »
Crop Sprang,

Congrats!
I'm reading around on the net. It would seem that this bike, quite like the 690, is
- geared high (someone said for environmental reasons, not impossible) however a larger rear sprocket seems to solve that,
- in technical stuff first gear is way too high, so one has to ride the clutch if the going gets slow.
Basically it would seem that this bike hasn't got the 'W'ide-ratio gearbox i.e it is missing a short first gear - is this true?

The clutch is super soft and feathering with 1 finger is no problem. How much of your riding is so technical to make that even a consideration?
I've got one tooth up on the rear but it doesn't make a massive difference in slow stuff.

i did find myself looking for another gear up at times when speeding along.....perhaps that is the thumper motor character

This interests me - I have "severe" mechanical sympathy and really don't like the idea of a thumper screaming away at highway speeds.
What kind of speeds were you doing when you started looking for a 7th cog?

I've read this so many times. The motor is happy to rev, it's just rider conditioning that's the issue. I've ridden mine at 140-150 for extended periods when I still had the rally kit. Stock form it's too uncomfortable to ride at those speeds for long. Stock gearing it runs into the limiter at 179 GPS and I've had it up to that on tar too. I think with stock gearing it runs at 6000 revs at 140-145 and it will do that all day long.

This is 690 by the way. I think the 701 red lines even higher

You should sell your 690 for sure. Whining and 690s donít go together

The GS has almost double the power per kilogram compared to the XT. Also has better power to weight than the CRF250L not to even mention the rally. So are they overweight or under powered?

@johanp sourced plates internationally but it needed some work to get it to fit properly. Should be documented in the F800 section

One of my favourites for the freezer is bolognese in portions in zip lock bags. Costs 20 rand for a substantial and super tasty portion (onions, garlic, chillies, mince, stock, red wine, tomato tins, passata). Keeps very well for a few weeks  :thumleft:

Have you seen the price of butter? Kerrygold 250g unsalted is just under 70 bucks  :o :o

GXCC is offroad and not held at Heidelberg. Cracker is right do local day races first. Rally is seriously expensive. Just entry ticket was nearing 30k for amageza and you can easily spend another 30 on top of that. Amageza is no more unfortunately

Dit sal ook baie help as die lisensie toets enige iets te doen het met bike ry. Volgens my, ek het my lisensie in 2011 gekry, beteken die toets niks, jy leer geen bruikbare tegnieke nie

Ek stem ... hulle toets of jy die voertuig kan ry en nooit of jy 'n pad kan gebruik nie.

Te veel mense op SA paaie met min of geen aanvoeling vir padgedrag nie.

'n Toets gaan niks verander nie. Ek sien elke dag opgevoede hoŽ middel klas mense in duur karre wat oor rooi robotte ry, in toue in druk, tussen bane jaag, vrouens intimideer, bikers af sny etc

'n P*#s is 'n P#$s al sit hy op 'n perd ne oom Eugene?
