Rear subframe does not need to be modified so you can always revert back to standard if you wanted.








Don't do this to me .........

How little? That's a relative term... For some it may be an everyday task...and for others a mayor ordeal!!!

Jim, can you provide info on how different/similar are they? You have both bikes!

Now, I'm interested... And the will look great in red and white!!!

More Fuel Capacity?

Now we just need to find a comfortable seat to tolerate the extended range. Miss the seat on my former 1980 IT250G; best one I've ever sampled.

Past research shows that the RD04 rear subframe "should" bolt right onto the end of the TA frame. All bracket and attachment points may not be welded onto the TA frame but it should not be difficult to add this piece.

The actual subframes I've seen on eBay germany and are not THAT expensive.

Originally, I wanted to do this mod because I wanted to add the RD04 rear side panels. Unfortunately, those guys are always really expensive and usually are missing the little tool box door.

Now, Kitped's molded side panels are a new addition and bring this mod back into focus again.


Mario,

This mod means you'll be modding the seat pan anyway so it's a chance to go see Renazco Racing in SantaRosa for a custom "Dakar" seat that can tolerate a 400 mile sit.


Kitped........I see the photos of the side panel molds and they look great. My question is about the fuel tank.

Have you also built a fuel tank to go under the side panels or is the tank the owners responsibility?

Any ideas about shipping cost to the States. You guys always have huge charges for anything that leaves your island.

Help - RD04 Owners

Anyone able to provide the following approximate measurement for an RD04 rear suspension triangle? The top hole is where the triangle meets the swingarm. The hole on the left (where shock is mounted) is toward the front wheel and the hole on the right (where dog bone is mounted) is toward the back wheel.

Your help is highly appreciated.

Thanks so much!
Mario
