Good job Jaybo, keep the pics comming. Can you keep a list of each tool you use so we don't miss angthing in the dakar tool roll/box.

Glad to hear the seats getting the Renazco treatment, Will it get the KST logo?

Its not quite the same thing but my crf's going to get the same treatment starting this weekend (man i'm itching for a ride, been 9 months)

The DRZ was too much power for him- had to go for one of them fancy girly liteweight bikes.

Just when it was getting safari ready too.

With the new baby/house/dakar/new job i decided it'd be a while before i got a decent adv ride in so i swapped it for a 05 CRF450r, unfortunately it now needs a new stator before it gets dirty again. Hope to get to a few XC's and flat track mx this season if i get a leave pass

Anyway back to DAKAR business

Sexy stuff!

I got a nice big box delivered from Italy today:


Let's see what's inside then:


Gotta love Carbon Fibre:




I can't wait to bolt it together and try it on the bike. It's unbelievably light. I know the whole fairing is 1,100 gms, but I can't remember what my standard one weighs. I do know that the difference in weight between my standard 450RFR fairing and a standard 690RFR fairing is 800gms. It's going to be good!

Great to see another Kiwi in the Dakar, big challenge but I'm sure you'll be well prepared .

Best of luck amigo, I'll be keeping a keen eye on your progress ..............
