Nothing much on my end. Haven't been in Vienna in a while, but it is now definite that I will move back beginning of November. I still have about 5 other projects going on so don't expect anything soon.


But I think I have the fuel system figured out, provided that I find room to mount a surge tank that can house the stock Versys pump/regulator. If I move the airbox up front between the two Rally tanks this should give me room just behind the shock. I already have a dual inlet distribution valve to switch between front and rear tanks on order, as well as a vacuum pump to get the fuel up into the surge tank.

Another alternative I have been looking into is the 690 Duke/SM tank, which comes with an internal EFI pump. It's pretty small, but I like the look and together with the rear tanks I would still have a good range. Since it hugs the trellis frame backbone on the KTMs, it also should be wide enough to fit over the twin cylinders.

Oh yeah, as usual when I am bored and away from the garage, I have been doing more parts shopping.

I would like to go with a short exhaust that goes up behind the rear fuel tank at a steep angle, like this:




Since the original KTM rally exhaust is very expensive, hard to find used, and heavy, I went another way. I now have two options to go with:

-First is a MIVV GP carbon can off an R6. It's very light and short, but unfortunately missing the "E" marking to be street legal for visual inspections.



- The second is a Remus Revolution titanium can off an unkwown bike. It is "E" marked, has a removable DB-killer and is also very light, but it would have to be shortened since it's way too long in it's current form. Good thing is that the sound will probably pretty good after that even with the DB-killer in, so less hassle with the police.

i wouldn't worry about pipe routing until the motor is in the frame, and your fuel tanks are mocked up. pipe will be the easy part!

i vote the remus ti can, and shorten it.

off you go!

No, but I was thinking about it just yesterday. Getting bored here waiting for snowmobile season. Maybe I'll work on it this week....

Looking forward to see what you come up with.

I definitely haven't been bored, if I wasn't traveling or at work, I was in the new shop. Mostly getting everything set up still, should pretty much be done around Christmas. But then I will finally have a nice space to work in, with all the tools, etc. Until then there will be little progress on the Katamaki I'm afraid.

So you all should use the head start to get cracking on your own projects!

Hey Lucas!

I changed the muffler on my bike to a GSXR750 can and shaved like 7 lbs. And its cheap! Love the deep tone that it gave!

Here is a pic...

Nice TA locorider!

I have the same muffler on my DR650, actually the GSXR1000 version which is titanium. I also like it a lot because it never needs repacking and is so light, about the same weight as the Remus Ti one. I've got a spare one here in case I want to go that way.

Why does your Transalp look unusually more bad ass then most?

I was wondering the same thing, maybe it looks more aggressive sitting on the jack with the suspension extended...

Get on with the build please, I'll be asking you for advice for a 300lb, 100hp road racing project next
