Thinking of spoiling myself with an IMS tank, I have not yet needed the extra range but you never know plus I reckon with time the aftermarket parts for the carb only 2006 and 2007 models may start to become scarce. Should be about R3000-00 landed.

Think it is going to cost you a bit more than that - tank is about R2500, shipping R600-R700 then PLUS VAT and some handling fees ... this is if you get it right to quote the right customs tariff code so as not to pay import duty. Still not bad all things considered with our present exchange rates. Look on e-Bay as well.

I have decided to use my iphone as a GPS on the bike. The phone is expensive so it needs to be protected as much as possible. I made an extra bracket that attached to the standard instrument cluster and gets support from the top triple clamp bolts. Not Dakar quality but it will do, plenty sturdy. I have an Otterbox 2600, it is rugged but far too big and bulky. They also make a Armor model which looks promising. Underneath the bracket I will connect a 5VDC convertor with female USB plug to power the phone. Navigation wise I will use either Google Earth or GPS Kit.

Inventive move! I would be tempted to make a whole new alu plate that still accommodates the speedo and ignition plus i-Phone but moves it up a bit higher and more vertical. One reason is I find the present position hard to read with the cables in the way and the ignition position is a PIA. Thinking of doing this to my scoot anyway.

Yes as long as it is supported at the front as well. The stock steel one is fine but bolting an extra 100mm piece to it makes it flimsy. Alanb had a nice setup made for his LED conversion which bolts to the handy threads on the bottom triple clamp (wonder what they are for ?). The angle you mentioned will also aid in removing glare and add contrast in bright sunlight. Just need an app to block work related calls when riding  :biggrin:

Ja this makes sense - a kind of triangulation would certainly add support. I also have a Dakar screen that I like attached to a 630 light fairing that could do with some additional bracing ... you got me scheming again ...  ::)

Alan what would this setup cost ? I will still be using the stock speedometer and headlight but also need the extra space up top as per your setup, the angle is perfect to  :thumleft:

Hi

I'm in Hazyview at the momement posting on a iPhone.

Can't remember the exact price to get those things laser cut but it was about R300-400 in total maybe less.

I have the cad files if you want them. But can only get them to you on e I get back on the 6th.

Hi, thanks will be in contact when you get back. Would apreciate the cad file, will just need to change the faceplate to accept the stock speedo. Also would like to see how you mounted the headlight mask to the bracket. I ordered a 5vdc step down usb plug from overseas and will take some time to get here.

Someone going for the DIY double Baja light look?! Real overkill IMHO unless you are actually racing at night but maybe with regular headlight globes could be fun but more to break  ::). A genuine Baja Design La Paz 8" double will cost you $1000 in HID ... I have a single on my HP2 (scored it a few years back in USA and did the HID myself) and is awesome  :o
