Yeah. I thought it was more important to explore the Bayan temple at Angkor Thom.

Been hearing more and more about these things lately.....but one thing strikes me: "The main rear moulded fuel tank,and the front left side moulded fuel tanks will hold 17 litres,whilst the dummy right side tank contains the air filter,for easy access"

I get that perhaps the filter assembly 'might' be enough to offset the weight from fuel in the opposite side of the tank, but once you're running at even half, wouldn't this casue a balance issue? Otherwise, I think its cool. They definitely have the right idea and the fact that there is BSA lineage in this thing is a plus in my book however far removed...paint that thing orange and you've got a winning combo right there

With the tank(s) being so close to centerline, the weight mismatch does not have as much of an effect as a weight mismatch in the saddle bags would. I doubt that it would really be noticable.

Not trying to hijack Noah's thread completely......

There's some test ride reports for the CCM here:

I've been excited about the CCM since I saw CAD drawings of it in the UK back in 2012. It promises to be a great bike... and very very light. Fingers crossed it is brought to the US.

Noah-I might be mistaken, but did you ever find a drop-in automotive fuel injector for these bikes? A good while ago I remember seeing something about an injector-possibly from a Mitsubishi fits these bikes?

Am stocking up on some spares and an injector holder from motominded, a few injector related O-Rings along with a suitable injector, so Anyone-jump in with the answer if you know for sure.

Not that I recall. I'm just using the stock fuel injector and I have a spare. In japan I cleaned both of them and they both seemed good to go.

2 weeks in Phnom Penh

I got into Phnom Penh on the 26th of February. My intention was to work on the bike for a week then go explore some of the south western Cambodia tracks. After a week I was basically done with the bike but i wasn't quite ready to leave PP. It is a really chill city in some places and it was nice to just hang out.


Working on the bike. (see previous post for work done http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....postcount=2885)


Monster makes LED blinkers? I guess I have to settle since I couldn't find the Redbull blinkers.


Kettle One vodka 1 liter = $17 = dangerous.


$30 hotel room


People here don't get the concept of stop lights. They would rather keep going and make a jam.


Who needs a spark plug cap?


The view.

A tuk tuk with out scooter.


Mostly all the tuk tuks in Cambodia are a trailer behind a scooter or sim 150. They drip water onto the motor to cool it because the thing is overworked and doesn't cool enough from the slow air going over it.

Before I left Cambodia the first time, a friend of mine asked if I could come to the school he taught at and talk to the kids about my trip. Of course this sounded like fun so I agreed. I looked through my photos and tried to limit 5 photos per country. This became very hard to do in the countries like Russia or Mongolia where I had thousands of photos. When I was showing pictures of Canada and Alaska, I asked if anyone had seen snow. All of the white teachers raised there hand. None of the Cambodian kids, teachers or staff raised their hand. Some thing we take for granted I guess. After talking with the kids for a couple hours, they wanted to show me their robot. Some of them were going to a competition in Singapore the next week. All the teams had to use the same LEGO robot set and do the same problem. Some of the kids were really cleaver and had some pretty good engineering skills. You could ask them why and how questions and they would come up with tests. Other kids would just try different things until something worked or they got frustrated. The kids also had a project to try to make a wind generator. They said none of them were working. None of them would make the LED light up. I asked if any of them would like to learn about electricity and about 5 of them were very interested. 2 more times I came back to this school and met with those 5 kids. I tried to teach them the basics. Voltage vs. Current and parallel vs series. I took one look at their generators and saw what was wrong. The windings of the generator were parallel to the magnetic field of the rotating magnet. There is no current induced in the wire if the magnetic field does not change. I was explaining this to these kids when one of them asked "what if we turn the coil like this?" (making the motion with his hands to turn the coil 90 degrees). Yes! I gave him high five. I also tried to teach them some troubleshooting. I had 2 identical lights. I put one in a box but i unscrewed the bulb so it wouldn't work. I put the other in a box. I told them "one light works and one doesn't, you need to test them and tell me which one works. You can't open the box.. that's cheating." I sat back and watched as they tried to figure out how to do it. They had no multi meter to measure resistance. Only an analog volt meter, analog amp meter, wires, extra light bulbs and batteries. I figured there were 2 obvious ways to look at it. Put 1 more light in series and see if it lights up. That would show if there was current flowing. The 2nd would be to hook the amp meter up. They messed around with the volt meter for a while and I had to ask some questions to them about what they were looking for. Once they all decided they needed to see if current was flowing into the box, it was easy for them to see. Sure enough, one box had current flow when a battery was hooked up and one didn't. I would have gladly spent a few weeks helping at this school. Maybe in the future.




They were pretty stoked about the bike. But when I started the bike in neutral and gave it a little rev, this kid started yelling... "turn it off turn it off". All the others were laughing.




I think he wanted to take it home with him.






Sunset view while drinking a beer with the teachers along the Mekong river.

I met a lady from NY who was teaching in Korea when I was there. She was now traveling around south east Asia so we decided to go to the Tuol Sleng (S21) prison museum together. It was pretty heavy but not as informative as the "killing fields" tour I would do a few weeks later. Brief history: The Khmer Rouge took power in Cambodia in 1975 and help power until 1979. In 1979 the Vietnamese army pushed them into the west/north part of the country. The Khmer Rouge continued to fight into the 90s. Under Pol Pot, the Khmer Rouge forced everyone out of cities to work in villages making rice or doing other manual labor. Schools, religion and learning were outlawed even though Pol Pot was a teacher himself. The S21 prison was converted from a highschool. In 4 years over 20,000 people where imprisoned and tortured here. Most were sent to the "killing fields" in trucks to be off'd after they signed a confession. Of the 20,000 prisoners, only 7 survived. From Wiki "The four-year period cost approximately 2 million lives through the combined result of political executions, disease, starvation, and forced labor" In PP you don't see many old people. They were all killed or driven out and never came back.






To the dipshit who felt he needed to "tag" a wall of S21, you suck at life. Way to go Fresno.. you bread a winner. If any of you know "NK" maybe you can give him a slap in the right direction. What happened to respect?




Some of the victims.






Not all victims were from Cambodia. Mostly all foreigners were rounded up and imprisoned and accused of spying.











I sold the fake Honda scooter to the cousin of a really good friend of mine who just happened to be in PP the same time and needed a scoot. I figured $100 was good enough. He would ride it till it broke or sell it to another traveler.
