    I would have thought I was about average Arek, but here is the bash plate, which is of the large variety.....

    From memory fella's i think i remember something in the manual about checking the oil level on the "side stand" (check it out i could be wrong)
    As this might give you a different oil level reading to the centre stand vertical position. :1drink

    cheers.

    Folks,

    I tried a different take on modifying worn Tenere cush drive rubbers and basically cut pieces of inner tube and pushed the worn cush drives into the inner-tube sleeves. I did over 6000 km with this modification and whilst they were worn when I finally replaced them with new ones, there still was no noticeable movement, so this is another way of doing it that works as well.

    Hey Guys, I'm trying to work out what fuse box to get and where to put it under the seat??

    I have installed a GPS and USB charger but I want to install Driving lights, heated hand grips and a couple of 12v Cig adapter plugs.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Dash

    Hey Dash,

    I recommend you just put an inline fuse in. I wired up straight to Battery and run my 12v and accessories off it. I have a 12v outlet (if I use two ports for USB charging then I may run 3.5amps), GPS only draws around 1/2amp, Heated Grips (<3amps) and LED driving lights (2 amps total). That is 9 amps so I have a 10 amp fuse, but always carry a 15 with me just in case...

    All accessories can be run while bike is off (except driving lights - they are relayed to the ignition system) so just be careful you don't run down too much overnight (charging phones/scala/camera etc...) - I think this would really only be a problem in very cold conditions with a deteriorated battery.

    Can buy them from most auto or marine shops (I bought from Whitworths) and even has an LED indicator to identify fuse condition - all for around $8.

    Cheers.

    PS - I can't yet upload photos, but Msg me your phone number again and I will sms you a piccie of mine if you like.

    Google Eastern Beaver, He is based in japan and has a couple of fuse box options.
    The three circuit solution looks like a tidy little unit.
    This guy rides and a lot of his stuff is motorcycle specific.
    I have just ordered a couple of things from him for my DR, including the headlight relay kit with driving light lead.

    At one stage I made a fuse box for the ten. It was smaller than any commercially available one and found that it still saved more space to have inline fuses rather than a fuse box.

    Is there special trick to removing the rear brake pad retaining pin?

    What should have been a very simple job of replacing the rear pads will now cost me a new calliper I think. I've somehow managed to break the calliper piston during my fit of rage and put my finger straight through it :eek1

    Is there any chance of saving it?

    Cheers,

    Hmmm... just take out the cotter pin pin from the wheel side and tap out the pin, maybe using a very small punch or drift (from left of bike to the right...). They do seize from time to time, results in uneven pad wear or in some cases (like mine...) galling of the rotor. Careful with the WD40 in these cases, don't want to throw out the pick and have it all lubed up...

    Hope she's not stuffed for you - reckon that unless you have damaged the piston or seal that you should be able to get her back to ship shape. Got any piccies of the damage?

    They look good.

    How did you mount them? What are you using for locks?

    I like the look of the top box, it's pretty huge looking.
    How many liters is it?

    G'day Greg,

    Cheers for the tips, I'll be taking another look at it when I get back home this week. Heres a pic of what I've done, after thinking about it for a couple of days it almost looks like a build up of brake dust which would explain why it was so brittle. I'm not sure what the piston/calliper should look like new. Any thoughts?

    Sorry, I meant the actual Pelican side of things, were they a kit or did you make your own clips for the sw motech racks?

    Thanks
