Thanks for the feedback guys!

I think there are more than 40 new parts on the bikes so there will quite a few more of these write-ups coming. Just don't have the time right now as I have to finish building Colebatch's and my bike for pick-up on Wednesday and I am not even close....

Cruz,

We are going with the Dirt tricks timing chain tensioner, it's proven to be very reliable and Neduro also used it on his Dakar bike. Of course their Ironman sprockets are awesome too!

Will have to look into cleaning up some stuff like the zip-ties on the filter later, now I just have to make it work!


Clif,

I too hope that this takes care of any injector issues!! The grey filters were installed at the factory, I think they did it on all bikes that were built after November 2011 (maybe a bit earlier?). Before that they were using black and those are clogging.


Joe,

No time for training any more, we are off in less than 3 weeks! Guess I'll have to see the mountain as training for Australia then, maybe a little Safari or Condo action at some point?


Here is a teaser pic of some of the stuff that we are putting on the bikes, this is about half of it.




And just to get a good point of reference I weighed the stock bike and will be doing it again after we are done to see how much crap we have added. Weighing all the parts on a gram scale as well.

Hey everybody,

Here are some teaser pics of one of the bikes in 90% finished state.

Who can spot the most changes?

PS: Those tires are just for riding to and from the mountain, we don't want to burn up our new knobbies on a few thousand kilometers of road!

Lukas I won't cheat having seen the other thread

Since you are riding the 1000kms to the dirt, did you balance the tires at all?

With even lightweight MotionPro plastic rimlocks the tires hop like crazy at highway speeds. I balanced mine so I could dual-sport it more comfortably on the paved road portions and not beat up the suspension just fighting wheel hop.

Shark fin is a good idea. I like 'em in blue bling.

1. *Did you keep the oem throttles or go to something milder like the G2 #4 throttle? *Just presuming you will want to be trying to keep the front wheel on the ground while going uphill?

2. *Have you fitted Cush hubs yet or doing that as part of the Adventurisation after the 'Attempt'.

3. *Did you fit one or two fans to the radiators?

4. *OEM or wider/PivotPegz for the ride.

5. What tyres are you selecting for the attempt?

What is the countdown now till start date?

Definitely agree with Cyborg re having the wheels balanced.

Lukas is probably sleeping so I will have a go at these ... until he can come back with the full technical directors reports ...

(1) We have G2 throttles (Whole kit with us, but I think #4 is fitted)

(2) see the blue rear hub in the snowbound pic above ... its a Haan Wheels cush drive hub ;)

(4) special pegs ... Fastway adventure pegs

(5) Golden tyre GT 216s (the ones Graham Jarvis uses) with GT mousses.

Cyborg,

I would normally balance them for dual sporting but there was no time, shouldn't be a big deal as they do not have rim locks installed.

The offroad wheel set will have MP lite-locks installed.

Cruz,

What Walter said, except that the G2 has the 100 cam installed currently which will be swapped for the 400 when we get to the mountain. It's about the size and weight of a coin and the swap can be done in 5 minutes.

We are using one fan on the right, Barton looked into fitting one on the left but there was no clearance, at least with the factory fan. There should be room to mount a 12v computer fan if you really needed it.

Here are some additional pictures:

Official super-pimp wheels with Haan billet hubs. Amazing machining on these, even the sprocket carrier is a work of art.






Fastway Adventure pegs. Again amazing machining, super beefy and they actually weigh less than the regular Fastway pegs (the set weighs about 100g more stock). A bit wide if you get in a lot of rocks or deep ruts but perfect for an adventure bike to stand all day long in comfort or on a big bike to better transfer weight etc.

Size comparison:



Installed:




The bikes are on the way now and we will be in Chile during March.

Would be an eye opener riding the 570 on #1 throttle cam.

I use #1 on my 390 but it is even a little touchy at times on this motor.

So...

You're comming to the countries of the south?

I'm in the middle of the country, but if you get to pass near Rio Cuarto, Córdoba, or Marcos Juárez (in Córdoba too). PM me, I'm a student but I'd be glad to help you with anything you need.

Greetings from Argentina!
PD: Very nice builds, I'm suscribed!

There is nothing saying that at the end of this trip we wont get the shark fins, bashplates and a whole bunch of other alloy parts anodised blue

Can a husaberg owner ever have too much blue anodising on his moto? I certainly cant have enough!

Oh, I know. The blue bling is like crack. If my wife only knew what I spend on all those little blue bits.:what:
One riding buddy said I should just get the whole engine blue anodized.
