Yes , a Donaldson that came with a pre-cleaner.

Not bragging but it's 13.5" long overall , 6" diameter. Second smallest they make in that style.

Tossed the stock airbox last night.

Dust and deeper water crossings ... still toying with the idea of a tail pipe extension that clamps on that faces up.

I can hide it above the battery next to the chair behind me if I want. Unless you looked between the outfit you'd never know it was there.


Between running a Fleetguard oil filter and this Donaldson I can now buy oil and air filters when needed in any remote country town. Both filters are common to various farm machines etc.

And just to spice the thread up ... all my K's have run on Delo 400

Oddly enough Donaldson has several plants in MN and IA and lots of my buddies have worked for them on an off,now in China an India.

It would be easier than trying an upswept pipe for a K, Delo 400 as in Delvac diesel oil ? I run Mystic 15-50 semi synthetic or Rotella in everything,previous life was a USN diesel mechanic.DB

The filter housing was made in Australia. My oil filters still come out of the State's.

NOS steel housing. Looking at their web site the other week they appear to only make plastic ones now with a totally different shape.

Yep , the dreaded diesel oil . Even my harley owners manual stated that I could use diesel oil if I couldn't buy their oil.

I grew up around road trains , Mack , quad boxes , the occasional Far-Kenworth-Less , Cat' motors , screaming 6-71's.

Still futzing about finalising a radiator/tank infill design.





But on a happy note I did manage to extract a digit and go pick up some off the shelf 14 x 5" rims , a mirror for the chair and a jerry can holder

Depending on how slack I feel I may even get on the lathe and turn up the new 5 stud rear wheel adapter this weekend ... nah , probably not

It all sorta ended up near what I was aiming for.

Track ended up being an inch wider than planned. Toe in is in the ballpark. Lead is spot on the money.

You can choose from ... Fuck Loaded or do a bit of cutting and shutting to get this thing to fit ?

Your optical nerves are safe Dave. Just wanted to get a visual to see if the idea had any merit.

I'll be going with a hand made guard with the same theme. Think along the lines of a HRD guard , just a few more round lines.

Start of the rear rack and to stop the jerry can from flexing on rough dirt a support bracket.





You can sorta see the rear outline of where the new guard will be in this pic' Dave.
The idea is to french all the running/tail lights into the new guard. I'll cut through the side of the tub to utilise that space as well.
That is if I don't scrap the whole body.

After a mild slack attack I've actually managed to rough out the rack for the sidecar as well as add an edging to the infill/foot plate between the bike and chair.
Rack is a hybrid ... steel surround with an aluminium infill.
The one on the back of the bike is all aluminium. Same for the infill between the bike and chair.
