That' the main air intake now... i modified the air box and made then a scoop in the back side of the fairing to direct air into the box... i should get enough flow through the venting grid and not get any dust or dirt from rear wheel into the box

Mika, what an excellent build. Is it due to your long winters or do you just have a lot of time on your hands?

Time is very, very limited

But I'm a quick builder and it took about 16 months to make this... most work went to fairing.

Now as this is pretty much finished - except suspension tuning - I need to start to look for a new project!

Ignitech's unit is really nice! everything is configurable with computer and I can now use either RD04 carbs without TPS or RD07 with TPS just by enabling/disabling TPS in the unit.
Another practical detail is that the unit runs the fuel pump before motor starts so even if gas has evaporated from the carbs, they are filled before starting.

I fitted an ignitech to an XLV 750R.. been very impressed with it...
have you also relocated the battery to the front of the bash plate too?

Great build....

Thank you! So after searching for these on the internet it seems they are just standard bearings that I can find almost anywhere for around $2 - $10. Does that sound right? I don't need to find any that are specifically rated for the weight or speed of a motorcycle or anything?

I found this info on www.AfricaTwin.de
You can also read more about it in English on ATiC http://www.atic.org/faq/bearings.php

Something like this comes also pretty handy:

I would go with some good brand like SKF and that's all. ATiC has the right extensions for you.

There is a possibility to make your Ohlins Longer.
Just for info if anyone is interested, here are some ideas how i did.

I made it with longer piston rod (strut) on my Ohlins. I think there are three option of the strut length. I have chosen 15 mm which gave me about 45mm at the back. After installing the longer rod you have to place preload 15mm lower.

It gave me:
- more ground clearance
- higher seat position
- Longer spring travel

Here is my new "longer" shock, compared with the original strut.



There are other possibilities to lengthen your shock, for example with longer tail shown here in the picture.


Of course if you make more ground clearance you have to lengthen your side stand, I did one "thin rostfrei" version with my local mechanic. I hope it will last for some time. (on the picture not finished yet)


And this is how she looks like now with longer shock at the back:


Now after I raised my bike with longer forks and longer shock I am selling Complete African Queens Underbody-heightening Kit on flea bay: check out item: 130502204256

CDI is in the same place as in normal RD04: in the back of the air box (the CDI is visible in the picture: a black box :))

Regulator obviously is where the battery used to be!

ha notice the 9 pin computer socket.. this is for the 'new' ignitech unit that replaces the CDIs..
given how cheap this unit is I dont understand why folk will pay 200-500 Euros for second hand Ebay stuff.. As said I replaced the two CDIs on an XLV with one of these...

Mika this is a superb remodeling of this Bike.. well done .. more inpressed every time I see more of it
