NAATS 2010 update ...... 11.05.2009 .... Part 1

Alright .....

I'm going to tell Philspace (the mod for regionals) to nuke the first poll thread at the end of this week.

With everyone that has chimed in, on the poll, and those that have just posted / PM'd me - it's gonna be at the end of July after Westfest, and hopefully it works out the GSPD can make it.

After I finish this post I will be updating the NAATS post with Poll #2. And just to let you all know, there's only gonna be one more poll after that.

Poll 2 addresses if it would be easier for you all to take a long 5 day weekend type of thing, or if it's during the week.

Poll 3 will address the route, specifically, mileage off road. I've been doing quite a bit of research on the various routes with their mileage and I've come up with 3 selections ..... which I'll post up after poll 2.

Or if any of ya FF's wanna say "G ..... just be done with it and lay it out to us" ..... lemme know, cuz I could make a poll thread about that.

I'm joking .......

I will be updating the main post if a few minutes ................

PapaPete .... even though this is after the national in Redmond, let me know if yer coming out this way. I plan on attending that, and we could do up some rides, etc ...... and / or we could try and figure something out.

G.

Hi guys, well still trying to get a toolkit into my RD03 side compartment. The factory fiche shows a bracket and strap held it in. However, in this photo of my compartment you can see no bracket was ever bolted in there:



However, it does look like it might have been velcroed in because there's still a big whack of adhesive there... I might try Dual Lock once I get a proper Kit worked up.

Here's my new Honda Shock adjustment tool:



And here's the RD03 factory fiche showing the bracket and strap:



I'd love to see photos if anyone has the bracket, see where it bolted in, etc. I might try and buy one and drill and bolt it on.

I think I still have the strap. I'm not sure because I've never used that compartment... that lock is so damn flimsy that I've had cars pointing at me while riding telling me it flew open.

I'll get some pics up soon.

It looks to me like unfortunately this door is prone to go open by design in situations where the compartment is empty. This seems to be due to a lack of a spring that puts pressure on the quarter turn quick lock and so prevents it from turning. A spring or e.g. a rubber stop that puts force on the lock upon closing of this compartment should solve the problem effectively as it would prevent the lock from turning.

If to get hardcore, you can convert it into a switch with a key.

front brake callipers

hello people. i have a rd04 project bike and i bought some rd07 callipers with the mounts in the knowledge that they fit but have now been told other.

i have forks but no front wheel to see if they align with discs.

would any @ guru out there happen to know if they will fit?

cheers, Dan

Actually it's one of the few differences between MY88 and MY89: bracket and strap on the '89 model only, as far as I know!

Thanks for the photos, it looks like your bracket has two rivets or blind bolts on it, bit different than the fiche. Much larger than I thought too.

I was thinking to change to a keyed lock for more security but my door does stay closed if I have the lock in the right position. I can't even figure out what's supposed to unlock it, as the ignition key doesn't work, you need a small screwdriver...

In any case I'll work on it, procuring a bracket might be nice but I'll think of something.

Jim: There are many things you can do with the tools locker. Adapt a keyed lock and add some weather strip. Either make a new strap or just add velcro. But a tool roll might just fit in there and probably big enough for not playing around inside.

I am looking for someone having a AT in Florida, I am preparing a RTW trip on a 1150GSA but it seems like the AT is easier to prep so i would love to compare both bike if possible .

Thanks

That may be a little hard, there are only a handfull of AT's in the US as they were never sold here.
