not even close. starting my first full time job doesn't help. i bought drz triples, i'm hoping to be able to run DRZ front end on this bike. want to get the bike sitting right first before i start making engine brackets, i noticed that other builds (klrsys) run the engine more upright then the stock slanted forward. not sure how it effects the engine but if it's designed a certain way then i don't want to deviate too much. maybe pics.

hell berzerkowitz, your in nyc right. beer for work?

Just

Just thinking out loud here...

Re: fears of fires with the external fuel pump

Is there some type of tip switch or mercury switch that could be wired in so once the bike passes a certain angle on its way down it cuts the power to the pump?? Or cutoff like a jet ski has and just clip the toggle to your jacket?? Figure if fire is a issue in a get off.... well your off... and let the get off, kill the pump.

Again just thinking out loud .....

Good luck

If you find another donor bike I'll help build both. I already have a CR500 front fork with a KLR stem waiting.

the versys has a tip-over sensor i think on the wiring harness. if i keep that installed it should cut power to the pump or kill the engine or both.

thanks for pointing that out though i'll have to double check how it works

Yo

Hey Thomas!

The original owner of that bike is checking in for his once a year AdvRider visit ... and wants to see an update.

Hope all is well.

Brian
