The next photo just barely shows how the sunlight reflected off the clouds is illuminating the snow of the distant peaks. It was really beautiful to see.

My take is that they are pelican caribou cases ........

Just my .02 cents, and of course, I could be wrong .....

Yup! Caribou Cases (which are slightly modified Pelican cases) I built a custom mounting system to attach to the Givi racks. Simple & works great.

Thanks again, Greg. Not sure where the building will start, but it may not be a while since I need to save up for this study abroad thing...

GSPD, thanks for the help on the aluminum problem, I'll see how it works.

I did some work on the bike today and the output shaft feels good and the shift levers seal also looks ok but I did see some oil drips forming on the rear exhaust stud, not quite sure what that means for me at this time!

Any ideas?

Here is a shot from the left side, when I took the sprocket cover off I almost threw up.

Great G-Funk! Thank's Joz!
I'm in Italy and I don't know it. I look around in internet:the model is caribou and the trade in Pelican?
Haw heavy they are? I see many shape, which is the best for motorcycle use? Thank's!!

First, chain lube gets thrown all over this area so it's usually dirty

BUT

You do seem to have an oil leak somewhere. If it's running down the rear of the rear cylinder and over the starter motor, my guess is the valve cover gasket up top is shot. The area over the rear exhaust port is the hottest place on these engines. The valve cove gaskets fail there first because the gasket gets hot over time and cracks.

Clean the area up then go ride the bike for 10 miles or so

Come back and take another look. If it's not obvious, throw talc powder around the area. You'll find the wet spot easily.

Ok, the cleaning job is moving along, what a mess. Good one Stormforce I thought it was a good idea. Looking at some of the areas that are coming clean has me wondering how to finish off some of this stuff, currently I'm looking at the finish on the oil cooler, metal oil lines and other bits. anyone have some ideas about paint (enamel, flat, gloss, high temp)

One more thing, I've seen on here that alot of you have Scott Oilers, is this baked on road grime a continual problem? I have used thick spray chain oil in the past that has worked well on other bikes but I'm not sure which is the best route to go on this bike. Ideas?

Thanks for all the help everyone.

@luca: http://cariboucases.com/store/?name=Home

Caribou Cases is a Colorado company so they're local to me. You could certainly duplicate many of their modifications on a standard Pelican case which you should be able to find on Ebay or through other resellers.

@Keith: I do use the Scott Oiler as it was on my bike when I bought it in England. Most people here in the US laugh at me but I like it. I prefer the slobber created by a Scott Oiler to the super tacky mess left by some of the more tacky chain lubes.

I'm glad Jordan got your collection of parts. I had expressed a (very) casual interest but have been our four wheeling in Zion and Bryce Canyons the last few days and wasn't able to get online (whew!).

Maybe dad and brother can finish the project while Jordan is studying abroad.


Jordan,

Will you be in europe? Maybe you can earn a few euros importing AT parts to the US. I need some air filters...
