Thanks for all your help on this site. I did the Can removeal and the first oil change.

Note: the large hose going from the canister to the throttle body works great for draining the oil from your oil tank.

Cheers

Hi guys, I have pimped my X moto, (I did'nt like the stock face, color ect...)

So I painted it in white.
Put headlight from a G450X but not the original that you can find at a BMW shop... The part is from Speedbrain.de (It is all white )

Here's a link and a pic'.

http://www.speedbrain.de/index.php?a=653


Nota : The front fender (the nose) and the lamp comes from a BMW shop.

Then I removed the original speedo meter because it was too fat and the headlight was too far from my fork, there was a big hole between my fork and the speedo, it wasn't nice....

So I put a speedo from a KTM 525 exc (2006 precisly) it is smaller and I have many trips, total odometer, speed, do we really need something more ?



I had to make a part to hang on the speedo sensor, I pasted the magnet in the hole of the front disc, with 2 compound Würth Glue .

The next mods I want to make are : Audi 225hp injector, forced air induction, Leovince slip-on (already ordered it, I'm waiting for ).

Here's some pics of my bike, I hope you'll enjoy.
If my english is not fine please correct me I want to progress. Thank you.

Very nice look you made there Thor.

With the KTM dash, did you include the warning lights for the blinkers/high beam etc?

What lights do you have for the efi system?

Was there any problem in connecting up the dash?

Thanx for the info satur9. Having a buddy make me a rack for my bags. Added an Acerbis fender tank and went on a 1702 mile journey with the wife into The North Woods of MN, WI, and western U.P. Here's a pic of me and the bike in the U.P.

xchallenge bodywork

After doing some plastics swap outs, I think I got everything necessary to do the xchallenge plastics excepting the instrument cluster bracket. Outside of the instrument panel, it was a piece of cake!

Does anyone know, is it necessary to switch this out so that the xchallenge headlight housing will mount up correctly or has anyone come up with a homemade remedy they would like to share?

Some perfect looking xchallenge aesthetics, Solace!

Hi there!
what screen have you got?
Any pics showing it in full would be nice!
How did you place the projector in the housing , and are there benefits doing that above placing HID`s?

the screen is isotta of italy.see link above. the projector is hid. http://www.ebay.com/itm/140623713048?redirect=mobile you have to heat up headlight in oven to soften glue.then split open headlight.search projector install on youtube tons of tutorials.

Why not get it rebuilt? Rich Meyer in CA did mine and it came out fantastic!

You may also try Renazco Racing. They have my seat now re-upholstering and beefing up the padding.
