The bike looks great, Geek!
any up dates??
The highway dirtbikes screens got thoroughly crash tested last weekend.
I back flipped my 500 climbing some slick rock steps... and Paul front flipped his while descending some slickrock steps
pics when I can find my camera; I think I broke everything EXCEPT my HDB stuff
To rubber-mount or not to rubber-mount (bixenon projector / ballast / speedo dash) is still my question.
In my opinion, not the light or speedo. All else si.
One option left: Try HARDER !!!
These Pictures are really so good. I really like these but i was never used for my bikes these lights now i will be added.
600 Miles of Utah riding and the HDB Fairing worked great!
I have an MD road book I got used and two things. When reversing the backlights don't come on. should they? Also, is there something like a capacitor or some other electronic thing I don't understand that would keep the light on for a Few seconds after using the switch?
The last two days:
It's still not done yet, I'm sure I still have a half a day of cleanup and I have to wire in the USB and cable for the android phone that uses DualSportMaps.com for backcountry riding. Also finish the roadbook wiring.
Also I have another problem that someone may be able to help me with. The LED backlight on the roadbook only lights up while the switch is one. I'd like to add a "capacitor", flux or otherwise, so that the LED's stay on for 5 seconds after the switch is off....
Why don't you have the roadbook led's on a separate switch so they stay on? Like the ignition?
I used to use the same 3k lumen headlights but found they go into protection mode from overheating, have you had any problems with them?
The switch inverts the voltage to make the motor drive backwards. The LED's won't light if fed with -12V. Get a seperate switch for the roadbook lighting, 0
After a hectic Saturday , and almost at three hundred hours in the morning the Roadbook was finally placed on the test bike in order to test it on a Rally Raid day that was taking place in Athens, Greece.
HDB Tower was used and I would like to personally thank Paul for his excellent service, support and communication e-mails...
Off to the roadbook.
We had some fun with different colored spacers from laser cut plexi
Then, we made a custom switch in order to be able to test it. Not the final switch but it worked fine and given the time that we had I think it is more than fine We went crazy with the tie wraps but it stayed in place for the whole ride
This is the tower set up, I am using it in the aluminium format first and in the next ride I will use the PE unit. I have to say that the quality and the design of this thing is remarkable... I will try to match Paul's quality in my roadbook
These are the first pictures of the roadbook...
Never mind the cover, it is not final... I used two tie down straps to hold it in place. It was rock stable.
The roadbook worked flawlessly for the day, 130 something Tulips on the paper, a very small roll compared to the target I have set for it. Almost 23mm in diameter -rolled very tight by hand- (compared to the 50mm target).
The tower also features a Tower plate made of special indestructible plastic. You can literally run over it by car and it will spring back into its original shape. This will be the material for the final plate of the roadbook. We need to adjust the transmission speed (either change the motor or change the ratio :huh)
I had a fear that the roadbook maybe too large (dimensionwise) but it is more than fine...
Still there are some tests to run, I hope I have at least two units to give to crankshaft and BajaDad. It will be a close call but it is my target. Even with the Beta phase cover I will try and send these units out, I hope the tie down straps are not a problem for racing it in Baja.
Will keep testing this week and come back with more data and pics.
Bummed I couldn't make it on Sunday, my chiropractor had other opinions
Get well soon and we get the roadbook from Doc to ride it together so you can see test the roadbook as well and provide me with feedback
Here we are before the start of the ride ... Lock and loaded
Looking good Dimitri, keep up the good work.
good weather today
640 Armageddon, indestructible plastic, you say?
