10 Km per litre in the dunes if your lucky.

Last years dune race used 12 litres in 80 kms on the 690
I've got a 12 liter tank upfront now and fitted the 18 liter 'subframe' tank as well. Low slung exhaust being welded into place tomorrow.

Whats left is lengthening some on the wiring for the starter relay, relocating the battery and some other bits n pieces.

Will stay with the top triple mounted roadbook setup for now, 'banana' style headstock mount to be done after the Tuareg. Fitted a steering damper, just to make sure...




Should have all sorted by now and hopefully test run this friday...
