The Compleat ATK thread
 
All right... Let's try this one more time!

I know there's ATK owners (and riders) out there in ADV-land.

Let's see em! Action shots are mo bettah! :ricky

Tips and tricks?

Are there any hard-won maintenance secrets? (like the valve clearances :evil)

This is the one I'm lookin at:

Its a '96 605. Right now, its kick-only and without a DS kit. Both are going to need to be fixed as the $$ comes in. As you can see, there's no frame guard. Can you say 'hot legs?!' :D

Looks like there hasn't been an issue with this particular kickstand. Hope to keep it that way!

Gummee,

I just have to ask, based on your classic language spelling of the word Compleat, are you a pilot?

Gummee! 02-08-2009 06:23 PM

:nah

I was a history major.

Now all I pilot are bicycles and motorcycles.

Shortly after I had an accident induced brake malfunction (locked up) and had a firey crash on the street.

I let it sit for a few months and almost sold it, then Bones blog inspired me to fix her up a bit. I'll post pics when I'm done, but don't expect anything as cool and trick as Bones bikes, I'm just a fat old desert rat.

You ever find a tank for it? I read that you were looking.

Oh, and did the big tank thing ever materialize?

OK, I'm in.

Here's one of the two, 1997 605s I own.

Here's my best at finding the relevant ATK threads on here:

Gummee! 02-08-2009 08:53 PM

Hey, how do you get/make one of these bitchin front tanks?

That's the Acerbis 1.1 gallon auxilliary number-plate gas tank. As designed, it's supposed to mount to the fork tubes. The problem is that the brake hose won't clear with it mounted that way, nor can you mount a headlight.

It took a bunch of time to fabricate that bracket out of tubing, then brazing or welding every joint. It's a one-off that only fits that ATK triple clamp. I'm not entirely happy with it but it was the only way to add the needed range to the bike.

Got plans? There's BOUND to be someone else lookin for the range.

It would be pretty pricey. The Acerbis tank alone, sells for about $100. The headlight (without the shell) is $40 for a Chinese one and $100 for a Hella. It wouldn't be an inexpensive solution.

I've heard rumors that a Katoom aux tank ala the Dakar bikes would mount on the subframe opposite the exhaust.

Thoughts?

edited to add: quick search turned up this tank on abay

Donkey Hotey 02-08-2009 09:24 PM

Anything is possible with a welder and enough desire. Maybe one of the XR rear saddle tanks would fit? I don't know.

squidhunter 02-08-2009 09:48 PM

I'll play.
hmmm...seems to be something going on with Smugmug, so I'll post some pics later.

Basic maintenance is easy. It takes about 30 minutes to adjust the valves, including r&r the seat and tank. It's kinda weird to check the oil, I still haven't been able to determine what my oil level should be.

I'm in the process of fixing my dragging clutch. The clutch is a real PITA to get to, needing more disassembly than most due to the timing belt.

I wish it had a larger tank and a real sub-frame, but I really like riding this thing.

Monday bump for those that were out riding yesterday
