RE: Engineering

I dont know about the rules in QLD but here you can fill in the forms your self and the work (Frame welding) has to be done by a certified trades person(or if they think its up to standard) they can sign that bit off

the hic up you might run into is if they "go by" engine power to brake size instead of engine size to brake size as the GS500 probably? has more power than a DR650 engine if so you might have to get Motard type brakes

A Pommy mate of mine did a CB750 frame lengthened to fit a Howard 1000cc V2 engine in with a Matchless(i think) gearbox with a XS650 Yam ignition so the old rotary hoe engine would rev

End result was one registered bike........have fun and best of luck

Thanks mate

Now I've looked at the form it does not ask for any engineers certificates all it wants to know is what work has been done.
I'm actually a certified welder so when i post them the form i will include a copy of my tickets.

I was told that if the power and weight of the engine was no more than 10% extra I would not need to do anything to the brakes but if it turns out they want me to out a bigger disc on I wont mind because I've been waiting for an excuse to do the motard disc.

cheers

Joe

$25 and then $50 postage (aud). For a matching pair of stainless pipes i think they where a bargain even if there a tad heavy.

Sounds bloody good, even with shipping from Ausi. I want a set of de-cated cans for my 950 Adv S (boiled my rear brake on a hot day in slow going). Next question then - where from? Also the stock SE cans look way better than the Adv cans.

If you took your mufflers to a welder he should be able to cut the cat out of them for you in 15 mins

I've still got a few things to do on it like wire in the trip meter, road book and head light.
I leave for Gassits house on Tuesday and head down to Condobolin on Wednesday.

Good luck on the race DRJoe. I'm looking forward to you finishing up this project. It's been pretty damn cool.
