EVO2 Build
« on: January 28, 2013, 09:08:00 pm »
After taking a long time to decide I eventually settled on the new Rally Raid EVO2 Adventure kit. On the 3 January the kit was made available and I paid my hard earned money. And then I heard nothing for 2 weeks all was quiet Eventually I called Rally -Raid and there was a answering service. I left a message and still no reply 2 days later I called again still answering service, I thought my money was gone for sure. Then on Thursday 24th Jan DHL called to say they have a package for me. Seriously relieved.  When the little yellow DHL  bakkie pulled into my driveway I was like a little boy waiting for Christmas morning. So let the build begin.

There is only 1 small problem "NO INSTRUCTION BOOK

Contact Speedmetal, he did his own conversion with pics as well.
Or look under this thread, I think it is posted here under the 690 topic. It was around March 2012.

cheers

After numerous e-mails I eventualy got a reply and some instructions not all of them it seems they have not updated there book yet. Believe me read the book twice before you start . I have removed the tanks twice and taken out the airbox twice. RTFM.

When you start takeing everything apart you cannot help thinking I hope everything is going to work when I am finished.

The landed cost was R22 630 + Vat (R3168) because the value is greater than R20k you will need a import permit. If you do not have a permit I believe there is something else you can do but then it complicates the clearing of the goods and there could be extra costs involved.

Where did you get the import permit?  I have nothing of the sort.  Maybe I should ask them to split the shipment in 2?

I have not got any further because I am waiting for the Steering dampner bracket to come back from machine shop it needs 10mm to be cut out because the key switch moves back 10mm and now it does not fit.  I am also looking for other indicator lights but cannot seem to find something that will look right. You all know the OEM indicators all break.

Build should get finished this weekend I am not sure how Speedmetal got it done in a night

I am finished fitting everything and went for a test ride to see what would fall off. What a difference it makes have some protection and the bike feels comfortable between my legs aswell nice and slim. You just have to get used to the front end not moveing with the handlebars.

Some of the panels do not line up as well as I would like but maybe after I have decided what graphics to put on you will not notice.

The dash is finished off realy well and this is part of the reason I went with this kit.

wow looks great, much slimmer than the old rallye raid conversion
they are very good, i have the old one and only need to update the tanks and the side panels, so my cost should only be around R5000

then will look to sell off the old tanks to offset costs
