ek vind dit vreemd om met my ass in haar gesig te staan

Ja, ek's met jou daar...... maar dan laat jy haar tog bestuur?

Got the forks back from Van Laar.
They sure feel plusher than before.

The springs were the correct ratios but the shims or cone valve was apparently changed to match my description of needs.
He also gave me a printout of shock and fork settings for sand and hard pack.

Gonna test them out tomorrow  :thumleft:

Daar het ek toe nou gaan ry vandag, en kon nie die lang, diep whoops gedeelte vind nie.  :o

Anyway, dis baie droog nou hier, en op die bietjie sinkplaat wat ek gery het, voel die vurke heerlik plush.
SovÍr is ek happy. Moes ook die vurk drop in die clamps want aanvanklik was die bike heel twitchy.

I was never truly happy with the white colored design.

Decided to go with back plastics

was nice working on my bike again. Feels like I need to get another 450 project to keep me busy :biggrin:

Fitting the new plastics was a bit of a mission. The fender came out of the packaging all twisted skew  :patch:

Bling-o meister

After fitting the quiet insert, I'm quite happy with the pipe  :thumleft:



Lifting the front in 5th gear at 80km/h is no issue

Damn sexy bike, love the FMF and golden forks up front combined with the lights and windshield. Looks mean and ready for an adventure!  :thumleft:

Thanks.

If my ZA passport was worth anything, i could have planned a trip to Portugal.
(This involves a UK to Santander ferry, but a British visa is damn expensive)

Hopefully I will have my dutch passport next year and then I can at least do December trips to warmer places
 :ricky:

For now, I have to utilize the heated grips.

Found some handguards on special.
 :thumleft:

I think I might still prefer the looks of the stock ones with the added 3D parts and mirrors, but I did find that my mirrors vibrated quite badly and adversely effecting its visibility.


These have the Husky blue plastic inserts which fits in nicely with the new graphics and I have some back shields on backorder to replace the white sections.

The biggest bonus is that I can now tilt the controls down, to fit my long arms better

Found a nice 48mm brake line 3D model on the net.
It has a cable-tie running through the middle which allows for a nice tight fit to the forks:

Peeking inside the tank while the bike was idling, I observed some air bubbles.. apparently that is partly caused by the 52psi pressure regulator but i decided to fashion up a pressure gauge to test the FI system



Seeing as I replaced the stock quick disconnects with metal variants, I could re-use the stockers for this purpose ;)

Turns out the pump manages 3bar. Which is below the 3.5bar minimum.
Lower pump pressure will result in a lean condition and in combo with the new exhaust, I suspect it was not very happy  :patch:

I was erm-ing and ah-ing about what to do with this and decided to just go for the all balls pump rebuild kit:



Out with the pump




While I'm in here, I also increased the inlet holes, at the bottom of the pump housing. The stock holes are very tiny:


This does not include the Mahle K97 pre-filter and the current filter has over 50hours on it, filtering fuel from 4 different countries. It does look quite back  :o


This is now on order from the states and who knows how long I will have to wait for it, but its a life-long item and filters at 35microns (stock is 40)
