Kyk of jy nie n Djebel tenk kan kry nie, myne = 17lt!   :)  reik afstand oor die 300km's, met gemak!

"Bl#ksem" - dit klink goed LX, ek wonder of hy sal pas. Sal n bietjie navorsing doen.
Ek het Sondag na die "toy run" my "Goose Toob" opgesit - sal later n foto pos.

PM Watty, hy is vriende met die eienaar van Track&Tar in PE, sover ek weet het hy n Djebel opgebreek, dalk is daar n tank.

I used to race a DR350N (American version with plastic tank, flat slide carb, better suspension and basic electrics) in enduros and even motocross - that was more than 15 years ago... was a great bike and never let me down. I still have a box of spare parts :mwink:

Pray do tell what is in the hallowed box....?????   ::) ::)
....my hammer is hovering over my piggybank

Forgot about those spare parts...had a look today. It's a bit disappointing - I thought it was muuuch more... Undecided
The rear wheel is from the US version and has NO rubber dampeners (same wheel as RMX250) but should fit straight into the DR's swingarm.
The CDI is in full working condition. The two gaskets are for the magneto cover.
Any offers?

Dit sal kak cool wees as hy pas, ek like nie die plastiek longrange tanks nie, laat die fiets soos n backyard jobby lyk.

LX: yip, dis flippen cool guy. Gebruik nog my foontjie vir tracking, wag vir my gps van my swarrie af.
Stevie: koop van all over, maar delivery is viniger van UK af en goedkoopste van China, USA se kwaliteit is maar net tops.
Fotos sal volg kortlik.

Dis die voorlig se skakelaar. Het n rytjie van 4xLEDs bo op die voorlig vir "daytime running lighs". Hulle is aan as die voorlig af is, af as die voorlig aan is en aan as die brights aan is, outomaties natuurlik.

Added my Goose Toobz





Zip tied ontothe indicator stalk, and bolted onto a pooratech bracket. Took a couple of tough falls while mountain climbing and sandtracking with no ill effects.
the large zip tie just to stop the rattling, otherwise solid.

Man this little scooter impressed me this weekend. Went riding with the guys on their plastic bikes and Gruffy just chugged along without missing a beat.
The Maxxis 6006 front tyre didn't do me any favours in the sand though, took a few tumbles (more my inexperience than anything else).
Then went mountain climbing "In the Gorge", the plastic boys were suprised to see the Gruffster popping out a couple of minutes behind them - and that only because the rider  was a bit pap - Love this scoot!!!! :thumleft:

Ninja, jy moet dalk net kyk vir kleiner flikkers as jy gaan ruffstuff doen, daai std flikkers steek ver uit en sal maklik afbreek?

LX - jy is miskien reg, maar ek het so paar keer geval - in die sand en tussen die rotse - geen probleeme met die flikkers nie. Die een met die Goose Toob, het n harde stamp gevat en net weer terug gespring.

Het ook al n paar keer lekr grond gekoop. Het so hard voor oor neer gedonder dat ek die handles gebuig het, clocks se mountings uitgeskeur het en my mini visor na kak verpletter het. Flikkers is nogsteeds fine, net biki isolationtape nodig gehad nadat die klein skroefie op die lens se draad gestrip het. Verder, all good.
Stevie: Watse goose afverre is dit? Maak mens milkshake met dai flask op sinkplaat paaie?  ;D

Neewat Ninja, dit is n tool tube wat Goose op die forum verkoop. Kan allerande fieterjasies inpak - ek gebruik myne vir spanners ens. Van die ouens gerbruik hulle vir "first aid kits".
Ek het dit oorweeg om my paintball cylinder in te sit vir n instant lug pomp - 1liter teen 300 bar - sal n paar toobz kan oppomp sonder om sweet te breek.

Ek sien met die valslag oor die naweek het ek ook my bars gebuig en die clocks is ook los - alles lyk skeef en dit voel baie ongemaklik - gaan kyk vir nuwe bars.

My redenasie met die bars is so: std bars is sag en absorbeer dus die slag, aftermarket is hard en buig nie regtig nie, dus moet iets anders die slag absorbeer, en die vraag is wat?

Maar dit lyk beter!

Good news, bars are not bent, just out of alignment - gripped the front wheel between my legs, gave the bars a good tug and voila - all in a straight line again.
Clock cluster mountings - 1 point was cracked and loose, opened up applied Q-Bond and all sorted  :thumleft: :thumleft:
