w@nted,

bought it from Rottweiler Performance.
Be careful though, they may charge more for the couriering than for the actual product(s), they did to me when I wanted to order more - but since they did not reply to my email-question I will not buy from them anymore.
Oh, ditto for Rally Raid, they also remain dead-quiet when you ask them something, useless lot them.

I relocated the rear brake's pressure switch to the foot pedal, for reason it may clash with the Rade Garage tank.
Just swap the banjo bolts (the switch IS one) and extend the cable, that's all.
I mounted a Clake Two, haven't used it other than around the block but seems nice enough, rear brake works fine either from pedal or left hand.
I glued a thin rubber liner into the RG Bashplate to quieten it, don't know if it's necessary.
Have to connect my spots and then I'll be finished.

we do not stock nor import Vanasche, but I can do THIS sprocket guard, around R1250 each, available in alu finished or anodized, as per picture.

Thanks for all the info. I also looked at Rottweiler performance. I want to order the Oberon slave, vanasche protector and side stand dongle from them. My only issue is that they list the CLU 1201 for the 701, where I know on the oberon site it is the CLU1000. I want to order everything from the same site to save on shipping, so I hope Rottweiler comes back to me regarding the Oberon.

BTW your bike looks awesome and ready for any trip!  :thumleft:

Oberon themselves supplied me the 1000, fits & works fine.
However, if someone knows if the 1201 displaces less fluid than the 1000 then let me know.
I would prefer that one instead - as my Clake clutch-lever has to be pulled in fully to completely disengage!

Someone mentioned somewhere that the clips of the RG Bashplate may be torn out when a branch hooks on them.
The clips this way mounted I think that chance is very small...

Those bottom studs and R-clips do look vulnerable to klaps by rocks etc. While the clips are very convenient one could always use key ring type closures, or wire the clips (will also help with dropping and losing them).

Installed the under seat storage over the weekend. Very nice kit. Rade didn't include a T piece to splice tubing but a quick visit to the autoshop and 0.79 cents (Australian) sorted that out.

The heat from the engine is immense, so before I attempt to put a fuel bladder in there (No ventilation on bladders) I want to put some heat shield on the underside of the plastic.

The air filter ties onto the airbox with a metal bracket and only two screws. I am not very confident in the seal, probably unfounded doubt, but I have ordered some twin air filter socks just as a extra precaution.

Some photos attached as reference.

Cheers

Your Iced Coffee will be Hot Coffee  ;D
I still have to install my tank (all's ready) because of same reason.
Was thinking of getting aluminium foil tape myself, basically wrap the outside/underside - perhaps try that?
Thin enough and it may do the trick.
If you've done something pls let us know if/how it works?

I am more concerned about my beer boiling, to be honest.  ;)

The idea is to exactly that. Wrapping/sticking with aluminium engine heat guard. I will report back once I've done that (hopefully over the weekend).  Going for a remap tomorrow to sort out the lean condition.

It would be interesting to see how much petrol the heat could actually evaporate, mine was so hot I could barely touch it after a half hour running about town. I've read on ADVrider of some guys who boiled their fuel in the Rade tanks.

Greatm look forward as to what you'll find.
Keep in mind that the temp of the bin may not necessarily change too much with the reflecting tape on, however the amount of heat transferred should be less.

You could try to remove the triangular key-cover also, as this then will create a path of least resistance for the intake air hence may keep your beer cool  :thumleft:

So mods thus far ...

Omega rally kit
Tail tidy (removing the large original one)
Rumbux luggage rack for my overnight trips
Engine case guard (in case chain snaps)
Modded side stand switch (I took it off and moved it to by the battery)
ABS dongle
Rade Storage kit
Anti vibration handle bar mounts
Steering damper
Paddock stand mounts

I fitted the rally-raid rear billet fuel cap, but you can't fill the tank with it. It just pisses out the overflow hole. It even pisses out when you fill the tank.
I bought the guglatech in tank filters, but it takes ages to fill the tank. I just take one with me, and use it if I think the fuel may be dirty.

Chris the most common problem for this is twisted filters.

The filter needs to lie in the correct position inside the tank to ensure that there is ease of flow. Filter also needs to be opened up correctly.

This does come up from time to time, but always resolved by reinstalling the filter.

I've got the omega kit, so its 3 tanks that I need to fill.
I made sure they where fitted as best as possible, but they "foam" quite a bit, so it takes ages to fill.
I also removed the Rally raid rear tank tap, so back to stock now. Not much point in filtering the front 2 and not the rear, so when the rear 701 standard filter comes in I may just try again.
