    it started with my stone-age sketch,,supplemented by wasp-man's Solid Works wizardry
    [​IMG]

    here's the lay of the land,,,the obect was to take the 3mm/.120'' 6061-T6 plate and convert it into an adapter that would hold th eOEM sensor ring circa .06-.070'' from the pick-up mounted int he sensor holder..
    [​IMG]

    here's cam's future hub[he doesn't know it yet,,but i do ],,,having the lip machined where the sensor adapter will rest to give us the proper clearance down the road
    [​IMG]

    drilling a pilot hole for the 1/2'' drill
    [​IMG]

    here's the 1/2 hole being drilled to accept a my material holder for the lathe work

    [​IMG]

    that's wasp-man's new double disc hub having the step machined at the correct depth
    [​IMG]

    4.444'' is the diameter that his new adapter plate needs to be machined down to in order to fit perfectly within it's new boundaries

    these are the 6906 2RS bearings before and after we re-pack them with hi speed water-proof wheel bearing grease,,FYI the bearings were virtually absent of grease...:eek1:huh

    FYI,,we do wipe the excess off,,,with our finger tips,,what works for high RPMs is waaay insufficient for low RPM s like your wheel bearings

    Hey, good to see you pop up here Rick.

    I'm pleased with the way the bike is coming along. I have been hanging out to do the high guard thing for the longest time and the availability of Woody's bigger wheels is what pushed me across the line.
    I have designed some fork leg guards as the finishing touch and should get them during the next week or so.

    I'm heading out behind Mundaring through to Karagullen tomorrow for the big test run but I only have the trail tire fitted to the front. Woody is sending a new 21" ABS/TCS compatible front and an 18" rear over to me next week and I plan on fitting some Dunlop D908RR's to them. This way I will have my dirt setup with chunky knobby goodnes, and my road tire setup for taking the lovely lady touring.:deal

    Hopefully we might see you on the trail if you are out tomorrow, or maybe just catch up at the next Bully BBQ.

    Cheers.

    Greg.

    P.S - Dunno about the "bank balance" looking good. I have been too busy doing this shit and not focusing on my paying job..:puke1:cry

    I always check to see what you are up to with the bike and the mods you are doing.

    Hopefully you can make it to Kev's on the 6th?

    I'm flat out with work and home jobs for the foreseeable future but hopefully be able to fit in a ride soon.

    Cheers, Richard.

    No, not away Javier. I dont use this thread so much now as it got too long and convoluted.

    Ahh, sorry Graham. This is the silicone grease you were asking about in a p.m...?
    Barge bought this along to home when we were installing the filters and I am not quite sure what bran or where he got it from..

    Sorry to pollute an old thread that is no longer in beasts and now in the vendor section but I just had to.
    The first part of number 4 should always be the first thing you do.
    If for some reason it is stuck, Broke, Cross threaded and you can't get it out you will have a motor with no oil in it.
    Sorry Wasp for the hijack
    Don't ask why I know this.

    Looking great Greg. This could be the prototype of a more dirt-oriented version from Yamaha itself.

    Hi Greg,
    Thanks a lot for an awesome thread. Very clear photos and explanations :deal
    I am riding a DL 650 for 6 years and I was thinking that XT1200Z is the best choice to replace such a great bike. Your thread helped me a lot and now I am completely sure that this will be my next bike very shortly.:clap

    HELP!!!!
    I just Installed the GiPro as per instructions. The whit cable soldered to the left ECU plug blue cable and the geen cable soldered to the grey right ECU plug. I did not plugged the GiPro at the extension cable. I tried to start the bike and a clic sounds close to 30 amp the ABS Motor Fuse and the bike does not start. I tried several times and the same. Before the intervention the bike was starting immediately. The bike almost new, 2000 miles. I took away all the cables I installed and the problem remains. All fuses are OK.
    My apologies for my english. I am from Chile, South America.
    Thanks in advance, Martin Schneuer
