    Any suggested suppliers for suitable bar risers?
    How much of a rise have you used and was the existing cable lengths ok, and what is your height?
    I'm 190cms 6'3". Felt I had to crouch a bit to reach standing up.

    I found these to work well. from MX Store.com made by ZETA Universal 28mm bar dia.
    30 mm risers, I have them on the Scott's Kit which is about 15 mm higher than standard so they are about as high as the clutch line and elec wiring will allow, but all still fits after working to "make some more length", I also fitted 4x 8x65mm high tensile bolts to be sure its mounted as well as possible, the bolts provided were cheap and only 55 mm. Hope this helps. Cheers John. IMG_4810[1].JPG

    Outbackflyer I have an identical setup, but haven't done anything with the side stand switch. I seen your photo but couldn't quite see what you did to it?

    Great post! The Rade tank interests me - are you running a PCV as well given that you're probably getting more air in with the pod filter? Are you running an aftermarket pipe too? It all adds up pretty quick if you make mods that change the intake and exhaust!

    Thanks for all the advice Outbackflyer! I've got the Rade tank on order. I'll check out those bar risers, thanks for outlining the limit of the cables. Pick up my new bike next week. Tank and rear rack are due to arrive next week too.

    :-D

    Marma,
    Sorry I should have elaborated, I wanted to disconnect the little plastic side stand switch (because it cuts the engine if the transmition is moved out of neural while the side stand is down,or if it gets bumped while riding or it gets torn off in the Simpson desert) obviously the designers have removed the old school tactic of just pulling it off, so I tried wiring in a 2000 Ohm resister in the connector (same result), so I decided to give the system what it wanted and bought a 50 cent computer magnet aprox 8x12x20 mm in size and I attached it by a dab of silicone across the face of the (previously frame mounted) pick up sensor, (its a resin filled sealed unit that picks up the magnetic signal from the piece of shet plastic tab which is attached to the side stand.
    Then I further secured the magnet to the sensor with a small zip tie and finished off the deception by heat shrinking the unit and securing it all up out of harms way behind the battery.
    The computer now gets a nice magnetic signal 24/7 to the (un suspecting ) sensor unit, fixed.
    Other methods have been used out bush on some Jap bikes when the OEM magnet is gone is to supply live power to the neutral switch output which sends a signal to the computer that the bike is "in neutral" and off you ride.
    Pic is of the standard magnet which is embeded into plastic arm and the replacement magnet used.
    Also shot of the pickup sensor before gluing magnet to face. IMG_4679.JPG IMG_4812.JPG
    Just keep thie vulnerability in mind before you head off on a ride into remoteness

    Hi Carl,
    Awesome your gonna love the Radetank, I re wrote his installation instructions (as we became experts after the 4th kit) and sent them off to him after we identified some errors/ shortfalls in the text and method , not sure if Rade has included a print off of them in his Kits or updated to web PDF instructions, but there are a couple of important points to take care of with fitting these kits, Im happy to share , and have no vested interest to do so just PM me when you get the Kit i might be able to save you some stress.
    Cheers John.

    Hi De Lewis,
    Thanks, yeah I picked up a new-in box KTM 690 Acro muffler $500 was a rare win.
    After removing the internal bolt- in baffle it is now straight through and has a wonderful note, it is also cool to the touch unlike the heavy stainless over restricted OEM muffler.
    I got Adelaide Moto to apply the Husqvarna tune for a modified intake /exhaust when I picked up the bike new before I returned to Alice , its never gonna see a Husqvarna dealership up here.I dont need any power commander unit, as the standard emission compliance tune just needed to be removed now that the bike is out of the EU.
    Emissions regulations dictate that the engine must draw from a vessel that is at least 5 times the cubic capacity of the engine, thats the only reason we have these huge space sucking air boxes on new bikes,
    Folks are showing confusion about the relationship between air/fuel mixtures / performance tuning when changing air filters and mufflers, the problem is compounded when commercial interests want consumers to invest in these power mods I would suggest swatting up on Density altitude for a start, which describes the (changing) relationship between air pressure and temperature , describing the amount of air in a given parcel of space.
    Simply, there is so much variation of air density that modern FI engines must have a very wide tolerance/ability to maintain tune, and with the correct air fuel mixture to cope with changing density altitude from below sea level to over 8000 feet , all without riding further than your local area!
    Im reading about people stressing that they have changed from paper to foam and having changed their muffler, are now fearing an eminent engine seizure.
    Im not getting more air in with a K&N Filter, it s just more efficient at stopping the dangerous particals of matter from passing through into the engine at the same flow rates, and with a little less back pressure due to the acro muffler the exhaust flow is still not so excessive that my exhaust valves are going to come up through my seat if I dont advance my timing, the Lambada sensor in the exhaust manifold will monitor that risk for me, here is a shot of the lightweight acro.
    Cheers John. IMG_4813.JPG .

    Yes frosty we know your bike is :"SOLD".
    Out for our first short ride , I had Hedenau"s fitted front and rear for running in as I commute 65 Ks per day and hate burning good Knobbies on the tarmac, the Hedenau are good for touring and hard dirt roads but crap in sand mud or any loose stuff, (there a road tyre)
    I will be fitting the Radegarage lighing / screen Kit soon, then not much to do till Simpson Desert and Cape York next year!. IMG_3715.JPG

    This 3x 30 mm salf adhesive foam is good to protect the contact between frame / braket and tank.
    Also note I exchanged the round headed hex screws with some flat headed ones to gain a bit more clearance from the tank. IMG_4704.JPG IMG_4708.JPG The OEM pump tube is drilled out with 2x 6mm holes corresponding to the level of the input port, close is good enough, clean thoroughly before fitting, standard gasket remains on the lower face, new thick O ring atop.no lube or sealant required anywhere.

    It was a bit of a mission to remove the muffler restrictor assy from Dan's 701 from these new generation Acro's, no longer is there a 5 mm hex screw under the rubber plug in the end cone, now its drill out the rivets, tap out the cone and end cap assy , remove restriction tubes by grinding off the locator tab (seen within) then wrestle the cap and end frame back together , fit the titanium strap and get all the new rivets in and away, sounds great runs cool but. Secondary air system removed,Fitted with K&N 1270 air filter and standard tune, goes like hell, Runs the same at Density altitudes from sea level to over 8000 feet AMSL.
