Many bikes go out of style... BUT the Elefant

Hi everbody

Thanks to everybody who helped to source a replacement for my 750 LE (Sam and dmx specifically). Got a BMC in South Africa. Was the equivalent of $120 in local money.

Fitted no problems. I removed the metal cage that's inside the airbox as the BMC frame is much stiffer than the OEM filter.

Was a bit lean on the idle circuit, mid range and WOT was fine.

Hopes this helps somebody.

Bill

BMC Filter

Hi,
to full profit of this enhancement (air-box filter), you'd also try to mount an open exhaust system (need to review the carburation)

Cheers,
SAM

Hope someone can help me out there, I have a 1994 750 Lucky Explorer and the rpm cable has just snapped, does any one know where I would get a replacement ? I have already tried Roy at Italsports with no luck.

I have a couple questions in my efforts to distinguish all of the differences between the 900 Elefants and the Gran Canyons. It appears that they share a very similar if not identical main frame, swing arm and linkage? The other differences appear to be in the seat sub frame and the lower frame rails. From what I can tell in pictures, the Elefant lower frame rails do not actually attach to the engine, but serve to support the footpegs, master cylinder, and brake pedal assembly?

I found the answer on the lower frame rail mounting point.

try the universal replacement inner cable from motion-pro
I had good experience with it as a speedo replacement. its good quality and last a long time.
if you want to try and get an oem one try MORO in Varesse

Hi there, some quick answers:

Willis24: your compliments are very much appreciated ... indeed it was my 1st test of the helmet camera... :)

Easy R: as stated by DMX, maybe you could try to contact MORO in Varese (IT) via email, asking them for the OEM spare part

better use info@moromotoricambi.it
they understand enough english and if you have the part number then most likely you will get an answer.

For the sake of clarity ... it's not "better" .. it's just the same, since if you click on the link of Moro web site you can contact them using the left panel function "contact us" via email (same email address) but in a structured manner. Moreover, using the website you may have a look at the spare parts available at the moment...


Cheers,
SAM

Thanks for the info guys, have just sent an e mail, will let you know how I get on.
On a slightly different subject, regulators. Last year I had to replace mine with a reconditioned Ducati one, however in the last couple of days I have had trouble with the battery being supplied enough juice. Basically the battery is showing 12 volts when the engine is switched off, turn the engine on and it shows 14 volts, put the lights on it shows 13 volts idle and 14 at 4000 rpm, put the heated grips on as well (it is winter after all) and this now drops to 12 volts and only rises to 13 volts at 4000 rpm. My question is do any of you run heated grips or any other accessories and if so what regulator do you have. I have been thinking of purchasing the one advertised by Dumbo Development Labs at $179. Would this solve the problem?

no it will not
the 2 phase generator supply only 350W so replacing the reg. will not get you more watts. your readings are perfectly normal
what you have to check is the starter motor connections. a corroded connection will increase the resistance then less electrons will flow to the starter motor

Since posting, the regulator has totally packed in. There is no charge being sent to the battery whatsoever. I have therefore ordered the regulator from dumbo labs. I am interested in your theory on the starter motor as this is the second regulator to pack in when the cold weather arrives, coincidence ? When fitting is there anything else I should look out for ? PS the bike has always started at the first press of the button every time.

check the charging circuit fuse before replacing the reg.
and once a year I used to take the reg. off and clean all the corrosion behind because thats the heat transfer surface.
I added a thick wire from the reg. to the frame cause the body is also the negative pole of the reg.
I installed the electrex reg that I bought from DDL and its working for the past year or so with no problems. just don't connect the white wire!!
the starter motor connections are below the engine where all the debris from the road hit. so just take the screw off, clean every thing and put some dielectric grease
