FYI I think the Scheffelmeier bash plates with the large tool compartment are now available for sale for around $400 without VAT.

I just sent my early version back to be upgraded with a new set of adjustable latches, I think they are also placed in a different spot now. Will post some pics when I get it back.

I also wanted to look into using the space on the upper left side facing the rear for an oil reservoir, would be a well protected spot to get an extra liter or so in there. Won't have time before the Tuareg Rally though, bike gets shipped off in 2 weeks.

Custom order bash plates.

Rear tank from RV Aqualine aka Safari Tanks in Australia. Justgastanks.com can get it for you.

Yeah this one. Just heard that the side mounts are now also revised based on our input on the pre-production pieces. Not sure how exactly, but I have asked Stephan for some pics.

Make sure to take plenty of photos for us!

Also Walter has alluded to you doing a possible RTW world trip over in his Sibirsky trip report. Any info on this? I would love to hear a out bike prep, route, gear etc. A Colebatch-ish ride report would be pretty awesome too! Sounds like your plate is full but would like to see your plans.

Yeah I am taking lots of pics of the rally build, still have a few hundred to sort through, and post along with a write up of the original setup for the Chile expedition last year. Just not enough free time ATM, maybe when the bike is on the way...

I want to do a 4-5 month trip Vienna - Cape Town along a challenging route across Africa, starting around September '13, for which the Berg would be ideal. I am also strongly considering making it into a RTW trip, but that will depend on some life circumstances and what I feel like after Africa. Also not 100% sure if I would take the Berg for that, if it's 50k+ miles a modified 690 might be a better choice....

Sounds great! If you go the 690 route make sure to get a spare fuel pump to prevent the ordeal Rod Currie went thru. Lol.

BajaDad, do you have pics of it on your bike? Are you using the liquid storage for water, fuel, or oil?

I have a rear tank for sale in the flea market.

Now that is a very fucking clever idea. And simple. The best kind.

How do you run lines from the bladder?

Should we start a new thread for converting the stock subframe into a fuel tank? I think lots of people would be interested and the info is getting spread a bit thin across all the forums.

Secondly, who is using a case guard and which one? The Husaberg Hard Parts 81232975044 one would be easiest to get here, but I am wondering if it will fit with a 15t countersprocket and the Sigutech clutch slave cylinder.

Believe it or not, the 690 uses the exact same fuel pump and injector as our 70 Husabergs!! The newer ones seem to hold up well on either, but I am carrying a spare of each for sure.

i'm running the enduro engineering one, not tried it with the sigutech yet but its already had a chunk taken out of it or broken off, i'll try and get some pics later. i went with the ee one as it doesnt enclose the front sprocket at all so hopefully clears dirt out faster
