Here's the Afric-Alp version on NX fork legs but I gotta think the AT bit would be identical..

Apologies, I figgured the guys with the real ATs would want to share

Great

Thanks mate, that will be an easy fab from a hose clamp. Appreciate the pics.

I was trying to figure out if the nipple or casting on the forks was integreated into this or not.

Yes, the casting on the fork is part of keeping it secure. Ray beat me to it but heres some pics anyway. It appears much the same as the alp.

Why can't you just order one from the UK?

I put an ad here on advrider.com about six months ago. Never got anything off it until last weekend. Turns out there was a fellow only 20 miles from me with the forks, triple trees, brakes and fender. He was planning on putting them on his Cagiva, but decided to keep it stock. Only wanted what he paid for them.

Looking forward to riding with them, I hear they are some of the best forks out there!

Ray, yes you insert the right size tool into the bearing, put the drift/wedge through the hub and into the slot. You then expand the drift/wedge by hammering it into the tool while it's on the floor or workbench and finally drive the bearing out. Simple yet effective.

I looked on wemoto and Dave's and I could not find the part. Probably more my lack of ability than not there. I should be able to fab a little something pretty easy. Thanks guys.

18" rear wheel ""

OK, seems both my rear wheels have terminal Gold Honda DID Rot so Im up for new rims & spokes for both Not to bad I guess as they are 21 years old.

So this is the chance to swap to 18" rears , what say the collective ??, plusses / minuses , if youve done it what gearing did you change to etc

1.) I strongly suggest you use 18'' with 2.5 wide and not 3.0 as i did. In this case you can go with Excel.
You will spare on the actual weight But most important if you will do some offroad with low pressure tires as i do alot, the edges of your rim will be safer with 2.5 wide.

2.) Consider changes with 18'':
- much higher bike, specially with tires like M. Desert because of actual 18'' rim
- you will have to extend side stand
- gear ratio Mixed again (nobody warned me about this one) well i should think on this before. also chain links could be different.
- tire is little closer to the frame on the front, so you want to put it more to the back, (because of that bike is higher again at the back)

3.) Conclusion:
I took Morad wheel 3.00 and its very robust and strong build. But if I would do it again i would use Excel 2.5.
Just to mention my gear ratios on 17'' compared to new 18'':
Offroad 16/48 (124 links) on 17'' is almost the same as 16/51 on 18'' (126 links)
Travel 17/43 (124 links) on 17'' is almost the same as 17/46 on 18'' (126 links)

Plusses:
- Michelin Desert
- slight better offroad stability over holes
- much Better hill climbing
- even more ground clearance (optional, but good for me 6.5 feet) :)

Minuses:
- slight more weight with larger gearing etc...
- can not fit Mitas C02 anymore :(




I know this will help ;)

I had an 18"x2.50" laced on before I even rode the bike when I bought it. I didn't want to hunt for 17" knobbies. Lots of 18" dirt tires though. I even ran 120/90-18 on my R1100GS. Yeah, I converted that one too. I have a 45 tooth sprocket on the AT. I run tires from a 120 to a 140 without any issues.

Lights

Guys are both lights on when they are in low beam mode or just the left one? I am getting both on high but only one on low? Thanks.

German models have only one light on in low and both on in high. Both of my ATs had this behavior. It is a simple matter for bridging between the two lights to convert it back to both lights on in low.

I used the info in this thread to modify mine successfully:
