First, and cheapest: improved springs, front and rear.
More expensive: Other front forks and rear shock/sping.

Cheers,
Lars

Ok, i have an old Honda Cr250front, I think its from an -91.
I had a cr250-03 fork on my AfricaTwin and that worked wery well.

I have a question, i think somebody has already asked it, but i couldn't find it. So, does the SR42 gas tank fit SR43 ? The welder managed to blow up my tank. Fine season start for me.
Edit: If anyone has SR43 gas tank for sale, i would like to buy it. I'll pay the shipping.

42 tank is the same as the 41.

43 tank is much different. 42/41 do not fit onto the 43 without a lot of other changes (bodywork etc)

There were 2 43 tanks on eBay.de a week or so ago. The good thing is all 43 tanks are alike and do not have to be color matched to the bike since the bodywork goes over the entire tank.

I'd find another welder preferably one without a death wish.

Both from ebay didn't want to send outside of their country. Or else i would have bought one.

Hello Jakob,
have you tried German and French sources? We're on the same continent, so it should be easier and less expensive to ship a tank to you.
Germany and France are the countries where most of the Bigs were sold. So there's a lot of stuff around in both our countries. Possibly it makes sense to have a look at German second-hand-parts-dealers. Let me know if you need a helping hand for translation ... my French has fallen asleep, so it's, by far, not as good as my English.
Kind regards, Bambi

well i'm out of action until a set of brushes turn up at beard brothers. they have my new armature but no brushes yet. it's times like these that a kickstarter would be handy.
i think there were only two kickstarter kits on bikes in oz and these were on safari bikes. one of which is TonyT's bike.

Bro have you tried searching for DR 750 tanks? The Sr 41 uses the same tanks as the DR 750.\

Another idea is to get a 30L Safari tank. Expensive, but do-able.

Then no point getting the DR750 tank. It might not fit. :(
