    I agree that unit garage R120G/S kits looks great, though I don't see it doing anything to shed more than a few kilo's
    Still would love to see one in the flesh.

    No not me. But then the Perth Dakar HPN is not mine, it looks similar but there are a few differences. Ie Perth Dakar decal, black seat cover and different dash/headlight on the PD version.

    Mines the one second from the left in this image, the Perth Dakar is third from the left.

    yep she has heated grips and better tyres for the wet bitumen at 6am, as the weather gets better I'll take the HPN more often, I'm with a contractor for triple M.r u also going to FSH on a bike?

    Hi Guy's,
    love your bikes and can only dream. But in the mean time I will keep riding my R100GS/PD. I liked the look of those SWT footpegs and would like to know if they would fit my bike. If that is the case, would you be able to point me in the right direction to get my hands on a pair please.

    Here are some photos of the pannier frames that were made up by a local fabricator

    The shape and tabs on the frames allow mounting of the aluminum panniers from my GSA. The cross bar provides additional support to allow the use of soft panniers as well.

    [​IMG]

    Nice slim fit, they are made from stainless 19mm tube and mount at three points to the sub frame without mods to the bike. The low mount is made to press against the reinforced main frame

    The HPM is off the road for the next 2 weeks while the forks are sent off for a rebuild including re springing and re valving.

    HOT!! I'm gonna copy that. I like it. I was originally going to go for something like this below, but I like that solution better.

    Any idea which model he used though? What bike is it actually intended for? Any idea of master/slave cylinder diameters and length of piston pull? Any possibility of having a custom length hose made or do they use weird Magura-only fittings?

    I believe part of the design intent is to keep length from header to muffler the same for both sides.

    For the clutch i think the only mod was to make an extension for the actuator arm.

    Next time you're there would you mind looking at the diameter markings on the master and slave cylinders? There are a few different sizes available for each, depending on the length of pull needed at the clutch actuating arm as well as the amount of mechanical advantage needed. Thanks for giving me new possibilities for squandering my income.
