Your local tuner should able to do it ,he just needs to get 3.3mm more on the shaft and the linkage ratio takes care of the rest, the seat height only goes up 3.3mm . Theres word of an ohlins TTX shock from RR-UK or Wilber's can make a custom


I have also ordered the new tanks and seat . Still need to get a job so I can pay for it

Then there's aust safari next which is 100% booked in so need to get this together ASAP .
We have a bit of a team Lined up

I have a cople of small projects first ,

New Custom DB killer for the akro bigger then standard
New frame brackets for the tanks
Repair Alu suspension linkage

Then the big project is the custom under slung exhaust .

Now i'm off to pick up stainless wire TIG tips and gas

It's funny, I've been looking at buying a new welder myself. Have you seen these yet?

I'm 99% sure I'm grabbing one in a few weeks.

So out for my afternoon blast getting use to the new Suspension ,
Hmmm someone did not tighten the preload lock ring (I'm a dick )
may have back its self off a bit , need to check sags when flat mate gets home

A part from that man it's plush sooo nice nothing like the bone jarring back breaker that it was , I did a couple of tracks and it soaked up the ecellarating bumps like my 500 so nice , I wanted to find some fast chopped out tracks

but being by my self and i didn't tell ant one were i was I left it at that .

Had a play with the vortex as well I have not realy played with it at all , but with today little play around I have it on map 9 ( standard SM map ) with the fuel
trims set 556 nice big mid range power stands from 70kph to 110kph

love it ,

Try;

http://www.geordi.com.au/

They sell tube and pipe, 45 and 90 degree bends similar to to stuff that "sakurama" (950 ktm engine swap fame) used. They are pretty helpful when you drop in to. Although from a quick look 1 7/8 may be as you have found pretty hard to find. Maybe commit to changing the size.

Maybe by use exhausts like this one if the diameter is correct and cut it up for bits.

For what I have done the first time I just used old exhaust tubing I had around. Any idea what bikes use the similar size tubing?
