First I thought I'd hear what others have done. I can put together a bunch of tools in a small roll. I'd like to have at least some tools just in case.
the RD03 don't have the pot under the seat like the RD07?

No, you have to unbolt the seat on the early models.

It seems I'm missing the bracket the tool roll strap goes on to hold the tooks in place. I'll either have to make one or buy one. I can't rely on that door holding anything in place.

Or wait, I have some dual lock. If I can sew that to a tool roll and stick a piece inside that would hold them.

Nice RR of a beautiful day Jim!

This weekend we had great weather in Southern California too. But we had only a short trip. Anyways I found myself sitting next to the bike and just could not pass on the opportunity of taking this picture:

NAATS 2010 update .....

Alright .... from the poll votes it looks as if it's gonna be at the end of July.

For those of you that have voted, plus a few that have just replied with posts, and / or, PM'd me ...... the majority right now is thus.

I've been researching routes and I'll update the main NAATS 2010 post accordingly this week, and there will be the poll about what's easier for the majority of you ...... taking a long weekend, or taking time off during the "work week"

Again, for me it doesn't matter .......

I will be "nuking" the first poll thread at the end of this week, and putting up the new one. I'll let all of you know this , after I do it.

G.

In case you missed it, I remounted the GoPro camera on my AT, can you see it?



Works great there and the VFR has basically the same mount so no change moving from bike to bike.

Now for a video I took the other day:

There's more too if you poke around my list.

Great video! You may need to aim the camera to the right, just a little bit!

Anyone put WP forks on there AT/RD07, and if so, got any pics to share with us.

Standard AT fork dimension? Length CC axel to top end of fork?

Hey we ride on the left here. Therefore I'm always trying to stay left.

I mounted the camera bottom of the screen. I'm not that nuts about this camera, hope they update it with something better soon. I mean it's ok, certainly not that expensive, but it seems a bit jerky for 30 fps video, and sort of 'flows' at times. Also when there's no sound it has a whine that disappears once it gets sound.

I got some more new video to cut and upload too.

Ok just uploaded a fun video taken from last ride report. This one's on pavement:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yuCaTSQJXg


This is the first one after remounting the camera mount. I think you're right, the other one was a bit too far left.

This one's hard to tell there's no straight road at all :-)

Lots of ideas always running wild in my head this time of year, right now ATs lack of decent suspension.

A nice write up of your mod would be nice.

620 fork.

Upper and lower triples from the same front end i guess?

Bearings?

Front wheel?

Disk and brake?

Mod of the stearing stem? Or a new custom made one?

Steering lock, still in function?

How did you mount the, i dont know the word, "ignition key unit" ? And did you use the AT one?

Turning/steering stop any problems there?

How did the ground clearence en up? A litter bit better i think?

Any mod on the rear suspension?

Lots of questions but i think there is a few more than just me thats interested i this subjekt.

Wow...
I can understand you're situation.been there not long ago.
I already wrote in this thread but half of the pics are gone, so i'll post it again.
I crashed few months ago with my @ and the front end got it hard.
The wheel, brake disk, 2 forks, lower triple, all bent.









I took the pics with my cell phone.sorry for the low quality.

After i took the front apart, i found that i had water in the steering stem.





So, i got my self the KTM 620 1996 front.







Got them refreshed.





The KTM stearing bearings are way wide for the @ so i needed to mill the stem of the lower triple and narrow it's width.
So i did.
I took the two triples to a workshop and aked him to make the stem of the KTM to look like the @ stem.







I've put new XR600/650 bearings.







After machining the stem, the upper triple had too much gap between the stem that got narrower and its' upper joining.





I need to cancel that gap so i machined a spacer.









Now i can put the forks on.







Got a 320 mm disk from Gold fren.





And adapter.







I got a supermoto front fender and the end product is this:







Thats it for now.
