1) The headers run under the engine because where the headers normally run is often full of extras like fuel pumps. It's all because of the rear fuel tanks and low front fuel tanks. The mufflers have to start low because the exhaust has to clear the rear fuel tanks below them.

2) The exhausts point up because the front of the muffler is low due to low header but the end of the muffler wants to be high to maximise wading depth in water crossings, hence they "point up".

3) The skid plates often have a 3 litre water container and a tool storage box. The rules for most Rallyes require the rider to carry 3 litres of water independently of what is normally used for drinking (ie camelbak). This is an emergency supply. It makes sense to carry the extra 3 kg of weight as low down as possible, hence in the bash plate. Some bikes have the water under the rear guard hanging from the sub frame inboard of the rear fuel tanks. (ala 690 Rallye)

Hope this helps. Cheers
JayBo

Some skid plates can also hold tools as well as water.

Yamaha XTZ 850 R 1996 Dakar Winner - Eddie Orioli

Have a look at this!!

I just posted it under a thread called Super Tenere, but it might fit here as well.

Eddie Orioli's bike from his win in '96. Not been ridden since - even have the last stage roadbook papers intact!

See the AD for yourself here:
http://www.classic-motorbikes.com/st...f=FC10&Lang=en

A collectors item!

Those children not sitting up the back of class picking their noses might have noticed that this bike (Edi Orioli's 1996 Dakar XTZ 850 R Super Ténéré), has TWO sidestands... one on each side! Just like REAL factory built twin cylinder Dakar bikes had once upon a time...

58 liters of fuel...! They were desert ships built to travel 500 k's at a time... Now we have our 450cc rocketships to drool over and the intensity of 250 km sprints that the rally now entails.

Just found this video and i reckon its bloody awesome.
You can tell from some of the slow-mo's how much skill is involved in holding on to a bike after its all gone pair shaped just long enough to stop nasty things happening to you and you machine.

Maybe 205 but a great watch for everybody and even better if you speak french. They were not as fast as what they are now, but that is still very impressive!!!

looking for radiators

anyone here know of some sources for quality radiators for a rally bike? I'm looking for something with more cooling capacity than the run of the mill half-chess board units that come stock with most bikes...single piece or two piece.

etc....
