Crazy hey how some people get wrapped up in it.

I got mine from Justgastanks, $330 landed here around there anyways.
The Safari tank is cheaper to buy from the US and ship it here,
than buy it here in Aussie.
Just shows how our tax structure here is just so against business here
and for business overseas.

Old Harvey Norman did have a point.

found this website where your flasher unit came from.
http://nbboss.en.made-in-china.com/p...D-FLL006-.html
doesn't tell you much but you can see all the different types they make.
First of try testing your flasher unit on the bench with a 12v battery & one LED light (it might be a dud)

have a look at this gives a bit of instruction
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/12V-LED-F...item1c1baf75b1

try with your standard blinkers fitted
then try leaving the - disconected
then try joining the - to the L (can't hurt)


Just for a bit of info, I run a 2 terminal el-cheapo aluminium flasher can with the 2 gray wires joined to one terminal. It's what the P/O had in the box of lights etc I had to put back on.
It has worked fine for the last 2 years & I've since fitted LED globes to the rear blinkers to conserve power & stop the brake light flashing. works good.

Maybe it's true, YOU CAN'T FIT LED BLINKERS TO a BRP

Thanks kennyrob , tryed a few different options , can get em to light up but no flash , went to jaycar a got 4 10wat resistors and still the same light up but no flash , i have a 3 pin flasher on my other bike that runs led blinkers and works fine , i will try that flasher to see if thats the problem , i just hate to have to start the bike to test my idea's , need to change my coolant out and sort out a fan to keep the temp down while i tinker

this is the flasher i have , http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Elect...-/250725598329

It's Alive

Well then here goes


Here is a breakdown of parts that I have either repaired or replaced on my Friggin Red Pig. I sourced parts from a local dealer to interstate and even usa (via ebay)


The work that I have done has not been possible without the help of all of you from the ADV site. And there has been a lot of help ! For that I thank you.


I had missed out on the purchase of an old XR600 so began a search and found the PIG


When I bought the PIG it had been badly treated but was in my price range and I knew that over time (more than a year) I would be able to re-build it back into something that I wanted.


when I got the bike home and started the arduous task of stripping her down I soon found that this was going to take awhile :) it had been prettied up as a motard ! Not that there is anything wrong with them okay ? But this one had been ill treated :(


first to strip was all the plastics ! Then the fun began :(

To date some of the parts that I have either replaced , repaired, or rebuilt in some form or other


Both chain adjuster Bolts frozen solid....... drilled out and re-tapped
front forks rebuilt and all seals replaced
rear end was rebuilt, re-gas'd and re sprung all by Eiback
fenders front and rear replaced
chain block,sliders and rollers replaced
sprockets front and rear replaced
DID chain installed (X ring)
Retainer replaced (one that the disk guard bolts onto)
steering head bearings replaced
bash plate installed
frame guards left and right installed
clutch cover installed
radiators replaced
radiator guards installed
all hoses replaced
thermostat replaced
Acrebis hand guards installed
left hand switch block installed
replaced headlight and shroud
made a small windscreen
brake switch (attaches to front lever) installed
Speedo re-calibrated
fork guards installed
Fork boots replaced with rubber ones (OEM were shit)
Rear support bracket re-installed (holds the indicators)
side covers replaced
Pivot Pegs ( I've got big feet )
Right hand Foot peg bolts replaced 
Arrow Exhaust system (muffler re-packed & rebuilt) shortened 20 mm
headers re polished (by hand covered in shit)
headers wrapped in heat resistant wrap
Tyres replaced, Kenda knobbies trail mastersi know there are better out there)

Continental 4mm tubes installed
re wire of headlight and switch gear using same colour as OEM
re-wire of rear loom again to OEM
this was all hard soldered to survive !

And a Bag full of bolts/screws/nuts/clamps !


All this work was made possible by my Makita hammer drill and Impact Screwdriver coupled with the good old hammer ( I Kid Ye Not )

Again it would have been very difficult to do all this work without your assistance.

Rocketmanphil Thanks you and this top site ADV

Hi there Kasuyaho

in reality the further that I dug into the Pig the more I found wrong so ...

cost me tooo much, all up on the re-conditioning of the Friggin pig has been $2500 (other half would say stupidity) but I was unable to spend more on a bike at the time that I purchased it.

But the gain has been that I was able to do most of the work and in an event when I get high sided or etc I will know how to fix it.

I still have a wish list of Tank, racks of some form and a few other items

but they will have to be over time and discreetly done if you know what I mean

Solice LED lights

http://www.andystrapz.com/products-d...Id=101&Level=1

Hey groovers, I am looking for more light for my XR650R. I have a cracker Cyclops HID, but it needs a battery to ignite the starter... so I have put that on my tiger, does anyone know if the XR will drive one of these LED spot lights from Andy Strapz?

They seem like the real deal... I will look at getting the Stator upgraded at some point, but for now I just want a quick fix.

Joe

If you mean the output of the stator will it drive this light yep.

The formula is:

Amps by voltage = watts

.75 amps multiplied by 12.6 volts = 9.45 watts drawn from the stator.

Watts / Volts = Amps

The output of the stock stator is what ? 45 watts?

45 watts divided by 12.6 volts (roughly) = 3.57 amps stator output

hey AClown, been a while mate. If I could find some donkey to swap my hot XR650R (with newly fitted pumper carb) for his KTM950 (SE or ADV) I would get another 950 in a heart beat... I have spent way to much on the BRP to sell it now, owes me crazy money, but I would suggest it would be one of the best around.. anyone want to swap a hot BRP and 955 tiger for a 950SE????????

When are you off on your trip mate? we should drag (speaking of drag queens) Doug out on his gay sewing machine for a ride soon.

Joe

Full noise for Kougar isn't fast, its just him yelling and screaming as he gets left behind. So Kougar where are you heading first?? You coming up this way or for our winter or are by the time you leave it'l be summer and getting a bit to hot to be up this way?? If you come outside our wet season, your more than welcome to park the bus down on the back paddock. If you decide to come up in the wet you can still park there but just keep in mind the river can come up a little high and it would mean you may be stuck on your own little island for a few hours to a day at the most. With this years wet it came up extremely high only once at about 2am but it was back down by 6am. Only other problem was that the bridge out was under water for 2 days.
