Heno -

Your rebuild looks awesome. Congratulations.
Some questions goingh through my mind:

- Have you used longer Wilbers (extended strut) or just shorter U bone at the back for more ground clearance?
- I think You ll need Much longer brake cables at the front
- I see you use aftermarket brake disc. No offense but I very doubt they will work as much good as original. Let us know how they work....
- SW motech footpegs look very interesting and nicely strong build (without rubber for my use). Are they lower as original?
- Your extensions for Magura are very high. Try maybe rather not so much long extensions but put them leaned more forward to straighten the angle. Than magura can be straight up with the line of forks.

Let us know

  • Wilbers offers up to 20mm shock length change. How they do it? Dont know. U-bone is original.
  • Brake lines gonna be Hel stainless brake lines. Length will be set to actual conditions.
  • Will see ;)
  • Foot pegs are standard height with 15mm possibility of vertical setting, I think.
  • Gonna try this setting, than will see. Thanks ;)
I definitely will.

Amazing how you got so much ground clearance with so little suspension height increase. Ever thought about going the Boano Sachs fork kit route?
And whats the plan for the fairing?

I have 15mm longer Ohlins than original on my AT.
It gave me around 4cm more at the back.

Ze_zaskar...Boano Sachs fork kit is too expensive. For riding type, I am used to, original fork with prog. springs is faaaar enough Boano fairing? Most ugliest fairing ever. (sorry for those who have it) I am just going to change the angle of original fairing for rallye purposes.

About the fairing, to each it's own, I guess. I happen to be a fan of the Boano's one, but the stock is sexy as well.
Forgot to ask about the tank, will you keep it stock or go for a big one?

By the way, saw your former Transalp 700 on SmugMug, really cool. I don't understand how that bike isn't more popular, it can get really nice with some upgrades

I mean something similar to this, but not so straight.
Will keep original tank.

Could some one please explain to me this front suspension mod that Heno has done. From what I can tell it's an extension that goes on top of the fork tube but I'm not sure. How does it attach, do you have to use a progressive spring, strength, also where did you source them from?

I am looking to replace the wheels on my RD04, I will just get them relaced on the original hubs but I was thinking of going with an 18" rear and from what I gather you cant just put an 18" rear wheel on due to the changes in the geometry so I was thinking that this "lift kit" might be a simpler way of compensating for the change in the geometry due to the fact that the rear will be taller. What width wheel should I be looking at for the best options for tires, I will be putting a dual sport tire back on, not a knobbie or road tire, the roads here in Thailand are bad and once I move there will be alot of dirt/gravel roads.

Thanks for the help in advance.
Keith

Sorry, one more thing I need to do some kind of tank sealer on my fuel tank due to rust. I found one on the internet that is called Gold Standard Tank Sealer, looks like a good product but I was wondering if the tank gets dented will this stuff crack off inside the tank or will it flex. Anyone have any suggestion for a tank sealer if this isn't what I should use?

Thanks
Keith
