    Today was a major change in the direction of Rally-Raid Products, in that we were working on a bike other than KTM.
    We have chosen the popular Triumph 800XC as our next venture, and one of the first things we are doing is to produce a quick solution to the limited fuel range of this top-selling UK built bike.
    Our prototype tank was fitted today, and connected up to the main tank using our design of Fuel adaptor Plate.This will increase the range by up to 75%, making it more useful on longer trips.
    This tank takes the place of the pillion seat, and is locked on, and can be fitted with a locking cap, for extra security.
    The production tanks will be plastic roto-moulded, and come complete with a full fitting kit.
    The first test for the new tank, and our Rally Engine Guard, billet Rear Brake & folding Gear Lever will be with Mark Vanscourt on the BAJA 1000 in the US later this month, nothing like going in at the deep end for starter's !!!

    This billet aluminium part we have designed allows the clumsy grab handles to be removed from Triumph 800 & 800XC models, without losing the all-important mounting holes for the Rear Rack.
    A much better alternative to getting the hacksaw out to the original cast handles!!
    This will be in production within 2 weeks, and the prototype is being despatched now for a trial ride on the Baja 1000 in USA by Mark Vanscourt, along with some of our other products.

    We expect the smaller Adv Tank kit to be around £450 and the larger Rallye Tank to be about £550, subject to final mould design.
    That will include laser-cut rack and all fitting kit to enable connecting into OEM tank.

    How about a couple of teaser shots for the side racks?

    Cheers,

    We now have the first batch of Grab Handle Adaptors to suit Triumph Tiger 800 & 800XC models available.
    These are CNC machined from aircraft-spec aluminium, and black anodised.
    They allow for the removal of the OEM cast rear pillion handles that can be quite obtrusive, whilst still retaining the rear rack mountings.
    £82-00 plus VAT & shipping.[​IMG]

    Today was the starting point for machining a mould to rotational mould a plastic rear fuel tank to suit the Triumph Tiger 800 & XC models.
    This is machined from hi-spec aluminium to form 2 halves of the mould that has been CAD designed to fit the bike.
    We anticipate samples by mid-january.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks really cool. Any idea how much this is going to hurt the old wallet?

    I would really like to see more of the side racks.

    It looks like there are holes to mount a Rotopax. Is there room on the left hand side to mount a tool tube under the rack? Is there a rear support bar to stiffen the racks and prevent flex?

    More pics please Mitch.

    Cheers,

    Thanks to George Dennison of Motoden for arranging a trip for us to work as travelling outriders on the Monaco round of the World Rally Championship in 2 weeks time in Monte Carlo.
    This will be an ideal opportunity to try out several of our new adventure products for the Triumph 800XC we now have in development.
    We have fitted our Billet Grab Handle Adaptor to remove the big, cast grab handles on the rear of the bike, and also fitted one of our Rally Engine Guards, to protect the motor, and prevent damage to the exposed side-stand switch.
    Also fitted is a new product, a Billet Folding Gear Lever, much more robust and lighter than the OEM part, these will be available to order, along with a Billet Rear Brake Lever.
    We hope to have a first-off Plastic Moulded Rear Fuel Tank from the mould we have produced recently to test on the trip, to give a greater fuel range, which will be needed for the WRC round.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Here are some pics of our prototypes we sent for testing, they have mounting holes for Rotopaks, and for tool tube on left side.

    I am wondering if the side racks are going to be stiff enough to not bend inward should the bike fall to one side or the other. I am wondering if some bracing between the two racks is necessary.

    If you want to send me a prototype set I'll put it through it paces. No snow here in California this winter, so I'm getting in lots of motoing instead of snowboarding. Sad but true.

    Cheers,

    Our development bike, the Triumph 800XC, is now fitted with the first production moulded rear auxillary fuel tank, along with our new stainless-steel HD pegs, a late addition to the new parts developed.
    Also fitted for testing are the Billet Gear Lever, and folding tip, Billet Rear Brake Lever, Rallye Engine Guard, and a set of Cycra handguards.
    The new rear tank gives an extra 7,5 litres fuel capacity, and is connected directly into the OEM tank, via quick release coulpng, so the changeover to pillion seat take a couple of minutes.
    The TKC80 enduro tyres will come in handy on the off-road sections when we will be travelling between special stages on the world-famous WRC Monaco Rally next week to help in TV production duties.
    It will be a good test of our new parts before production commences soon.

    Do you have any idea when we'll be able to buy those luggage racks? The gear looks great!
