Yesterday I started thinking of a rear light solution...Ive been looking for an LED replacement assembly but havent been able to find one so this is the setup I decided to go with.

Being a light person....and have a firm belief in being seen, I ordered the following for the rear lights...

Dual Intensity 45 SMD Tower 1157 to replace the stock taillight bulb and and adding hyperlites dual 8 led running and brake lights

http://www.superbrightleds.com/searc...products/1157/




Then I will be adding the hyperlites kit in for additionla rear lighting.......

www.hyperlites.com/stdsf.html


The U32 kit, Standard Flashing program, with Running Lights. We use a microprocessor to *give you running lights at 30% intensity, and brake lights at 100%! The 16 LED design gives these lights twice the power of our 8 LED lights, at about 1/4 amp! All the electronics are cast in epoxy to make them Water Proof and Shock Resistant!

Todays Progress....

Zeta Hand Guards with integrated blinkers arrived... (yes there will be a little blue on this bike)



Sten House Racing Extended Axle Bolt

http://stenhouseracing.com/shop/inde...products_id=23




This product has been designed to replace our axle pull. On newer model KTM LC4 and LC8 bikes KTM has been kind enough to thread the axle tubes extra deep. They ship bike with a very short axle bolt though.

Our extended bolt is installed in place of the factory part and allows the axle to be pushed out of the fork bosses. Give the bolt a bump with a mallet (or a log on the trail) and it is free of the clamps.

Makes removing your front axle a little easier without adding a measurable amount of weight... plus! it's a flashy little piece of "billet" to make your bike cooler than the other guys.

My Stenhouse nut doesn't get the axle free of the clamps, so to make pulling your axle even easier (without adding weight), drill a hole in the other side and you can insert a screwwdriver or allen key into it once you have tapped the stenhouse nut to it's limit.

Have you checked your raised guard for clearance at full suspension clearance? I destroyed my std guard some how when it was crushed at full compression.

I've decided for the Happy Trails soft bags and I am having a plate made for the rack that will hold rotopax cans. I figure I can run a bag for tools, gear etc.on one side.. And have the rotopax for water and spare gas.

I'm having extra rotopax plates water jetted out....so if anyone is interested let me know hey will fit the happy trails and Touratech racks. I will post pics of that next week.

We started sketching out the wrap....but cant give any details on that...


Factory graphics being pulled off the stock tank, wet sanded and then thebcarbon fiber guards will be installed


A few more weeks it should be ready for test & tune.

I've already mentioned to Les over at M Power that once the first is completed he may need to make several more and he said it would be no problem

My Happy Trails soft bags arrived today, Im very pleased with the design and craftsmanship...Very Nice Quality.

I decided to go with these because i could use them for both adventure touring and even for a rally to carry tools, parts etc....

For a rally I will run just one and on the opposite side a backing plate we are making that would hold a rotopax mount. With this we could add just about any liquid or even use their tool box with the pannier sytem.

I will post up pictures of mounting them later...

Back side that attaches to the pannier rack

Your build is awesome. Can't wait to see what you do with the lighting. Rode mine in the dark the other night and realize how spoiled I am with my Vstrom headlights.


Have you considered reinforcing your sub frame? Seems to be a fairly common failure when running panniers. Starts with cross member for the tool box cracking and ends with bent and cracked subframes.
