Aperantly its peanuts to fit. 1: rubbers between frame and tank 2: threaded bolt through top engine mounting bracket to tank fixing points on wings 3: bracket to slide seat into attached with two treaded M6 holes on tank. Sounds easy enough, lets see when the tanker arives, wish me luck.
The tank was $239.99 and shipping $65, total $304.99 x R6.86 = R2090.83.

Sorry boet, not gonna make it. My second son is due to arive 26 April so its way to close to leave my wife at that stage for a "vakansie naweek". Its hard as it is at the moment to get away for a weekend, with 2 full time jobs to afford everything just to not have time to enjoy everything. And I thought life on the platteland was going to be so laid back, WRONG!!! You end up working twice as long and 1,5 times as hard as in the cities just to make the same bucks. But at least here there are no traffic, no crime(fakkers) and no Spurs/Steers/KFC's and nature is my back yard.
You must enjoy bud, I have the best friend ever/peet pa van my seuns/insurance broker that lives in Kareedouw, its Langkloof Brokers and was a bar as well ,also known as "Olla se gat'' named after his dad, Hienrich "Olla" Lamprecht. So I would have been killing two birds with one stone if I had decided to go up that way.
But a man has got to do . . . . . . . . . you get the point.
You must go and have fun and ENJOY!!! (you blarrie lucky bastard)

Enjoy LX

Die DR word meer en meer vir Enduro werk gebruik as ooit van tevore, die EcoFees in CBL se Quad/Bike roete is besig om mooi bymekaar te kom met n paar stewige 1ste en 2de rat gedeeltes. Die 15/44 sprocket set werk baie lekker in die toestande en ek ry nie so erg op die clutch meer nie, groot verbetering vir my styl. Lig sy kop sommer mak-mak van die throttle af in tweede op. My toerre in 6de op 100km/h is nou net so rapsie oor 6krpm.

In die stadigger gedeeltes het ek nog steeds die probleem dat die temp naald by 105'C konstant is, dis biekie hoog na my sin en ek wil dit af bring na so 85-90'C konstant. Oop pad is geen probleem nie want daar is dit 65'C konstant (4,5,6de rat).
My petrol/lug mix is nou perfek en ek gaan nie verder daarmee krap om die enjin te laat koeler loop nie, so n olie koeler is gekoop en dit sal saam met die 22L tenk ge-installeer word. Hou die spasie dop vir fotos en instruksies vir die mods.

Kyk daarna om jou xhaust headers met ceramic coating te doen. Dit help ook met heat dispersion. So hoor ek van die Pro's af, ook met roes.

Roes? Wats dit? Ek bly in die Karoo onthou. Groter kans dat dit deur UV strale beskadig kan word.  :laughing4:  :imaposer:

Berty, is dit 100km/h volgens die GPS?
Ek het n 15/39 stel, meer gekik vir die oop pad, ry volgens gps 80km/h teen 5K - 110 teen 6.5K. Speedo lees so 5km/h vinniger. Dra n 14 tand saam om, om te ruil as dit te tegnies raak.
Daar is definitief n verskil in die primary drive op verskillende modelle.

Is die oliekoeler n oem? Suzuki kwoteer R6500-00 !!!!
Hoe lank nog voor die tenk aankom?

Ek het gister my GPS opgesit om te kyk. Dis +- 6500rpm op 100km/h en +- 7500 op 120km/h(tussen 125 en 130 op speedo). Ek het op jou kolom gesien dat 15/44 en 14/41 dieselfde is. 2,93.
Nee die olie koeler is nie OEM nie, dit kom van n Honda 750 af,maar is min of meer dieselfde dimensies en is nog baie mooi. Ek het op ADV Rider op n thread gesien hoe om die pyp werk te doen. Daar is ook erens n Diagram van die olie vlooie en rigtings. Ek wil nog n lekker raamwerk ook maak om die tenk en koeler te beskerm. Moet dit nog so biekie gaan oplees.
Die tenk behoort begin Mei hier te wees.

I ordered a 15/44 set from the US, should be here shortly. I want some lower gearing for the tech stuff in the mountains. Road riding will be left to my other "new" purchase. And no, its not a ninja. I will reveal once the deal is complete.

You never revealed!!!!!!  :deal: :deal:

Ek het teen dit besluit, X taamlik impulsief. Maar hiers die detail: dit was n '99 Kawasaki Zephyr 750 in regtig spotless toestand, en hiers die beste, met net 11000kms op die klok vir R20k. Dit was in 2007 ingevoer in SA in. Maar nou ja. Ek wag vir DIE regte een.

Hier is n kort lysie van wat gedoen moet word as als hier is.
1 22L tenk moet opgesit word
2 olie koeler moet opgesit word
3 kientech jet needle en idle mix skroefie moet geinstalleer word
4 crash bars moet gemaak en opgesit word

en wat in CCC Moto gedoen moet word
1 50000km diens
2 nek bearings moet varvang word
3 agter shock moet oorgedoen word
4 top gasket moet vervang word
5 exhaust valve tappet cover o-ring seel moet vervang word
6 wiel bearing seels voor en agter moet vervang word

en dis omtrent dit, dan is sy weer tip top en reg vir nog so jaar of 15.
dit gaan my beursie biekie seer maak maar ten minste is dit nie n KTM/BMW nie

Bert, jy sal nie die DR kan laat gaan as jy n groter oukie raakloop nie. Dit gaan die ideale DS bike wees.
Ek wil ook nog weer n 160km/h tourer DS koop, maar sal die XR hou as ek kan.
Stig daai "My 160km/h bike" fonds sodat jy die DR kan hou!!
