I have 2 ACERBIS tanks and by now I had to fix both of them
nothing that some apoxy glow Plasticine couldn't fix on the spot, and then at home with some plastic welding...
they are very tough but the dessert rocks are tougher.

so Stefan:
1-do you make tanks for the sr43?
2- how do you think it's durability compar to the ACERBIS...
3- WHAT IS THE PRICE??? (I only remember that it's very high )

waiting for some new cool pix...

Best regards
Nave

Ladder 106, thanks for the info and link for the vibranators and allso the post about the very clever chain oiler.

Sometimes a dry chain or teflon spray in dusty sandy conditions is way better than oil turning into valve gringing paste and doing more damage to sprockets and O rings, for 50/ 50 use mixed riding I use chain wax spray not so messy but the chain does get a build up of crud at the end of the day if riding off road but hey we all wash our bigs don,t we guys.

I fitted up a 16 tooth counter shaft sprocket before the ride last weekend and what a difference 3900 rpm at 100klm or 60mph which I think is very close to stock gearing because I am running the pirelli tyre that is low profile it was reving a bit hard but terrific now allso on the open road.

Or Ray I have only the plastics to paint and repair and the transalp is finished, hows yours going .

Thanks for the positive comments about the chain oiler. I'm always a bit embarrassed to include photos of it since it makes me look quite the "shade tree mechanic" and while I'm not Stefan I think I do OK with household shop tools. There is something kinda of fun with using a mustard bottle for a chain oiler.....even though HRH would NOT be amused

The TA is all apart, engine removed from frame, and being cleaned.

I don't know how people can let their bikes get so dirty. This one looked like it had actually been buried for a period of time.

I'm also fitting a NX650 front end onto my TA/AT bike and working on that when I get bored with cleaning.

The top end will come off the engine in the next few days for a 'look-see' inside.

Meanwhile, been riding the DR between rain storms.


Stefan,

I've been thinking about sending you the engine from my SR41 for a rebuild. Have you ever shipped an entire engine overseas? While there are some competent shops in this country, there are really no parts for this engine available here.

Also, Stefan, do you have a replacement air box for the SR41? What I want to do is to find a way to replace the standard paper air cleaner with a foam unit that can be cleaned when on the road rather than carrying a replacement.

Sorry.....here come all those questions I was warning you about.

Have you ever noticed that, when you take a motorcycle all apart, it takes up 3 times the floor space that it does when it's all one piece?

Odd.........

I keep thinking about the Dr. Who episode when Rose kept trying to make Victoria say she was "not amused".

Dr. Who fan? You'd hafta be if your an Invader Zim guy.

For anyone "else" that's wondering exactly what I'm blathering on about look here:

About the chain oiler. I have been thinking of one for some time now also!

I have one thing to add to the above: I was thinking of useing a vacuum valve for turning the oil off and on. I purchased a low priced scooter petrol tank valve (it has just in, out and vacuum inserts, and thats it).

What you guys think? Is it worth to mess with the engines vacuum hose. I was thinkin of a Y piece between the original fuelpump hose... Scottoiler uses somekind of a thingy also in the vacuum line that somehow stabilizes or something (its basically a sponge in the line or smthng).

I had some good thoughts on the dual-oil-applier building. Thanks!
