    LukasM suggested I post up in Thumpers with my 530 Rallye build. I have a long thread going in the Kiwi Forum, as I am sorting out a team of Kiwi's entering the Australasian Safari in August this year, and have posted the progress of my bike build from the day it arrived - actually from when it was a twinkle in my eye because I ordered many parts before I bought the bike!

    Here is a taste of it - ready to head to it's first event, the Yilgarn Rallye in Western Australia.

    I'll post up a few more tasters of it's life over time but the main build thread in the Kiwi Forum might be worth a peek at if you're interested in short stroke Rallye Thumper projects.:wink:
    Cheers

    She came out awesome John, just like your 640 Rally did last year!:clap

    I am guessing the tool box on the front was a custom addition, Force doesn't show it on their website. Have you checked if the wheel will hit when the forks are compressed fully?


    Here is a link to the Kiwi forum, you guys will have to search for the thread yourselves and bring some activity over there as JayBo wanted! :deal

    very nice: I know a lot of non Adv riders don't get this type of build.

    for some reason.. I just love the looks of a rally bike.

    awesome build..

    The fairing and all the gear is available from mecasystem but you'd have to do a fair bit of custom work to make it suit a DRZ400. For the KaTooM it's straight out of the catalogue. It is very expensive but is very good gear.
    Dealing with Mecasystem is a bit of a challenge (I suspect if you speak French it will help enourmously) but they do get your order out to you pretty quickly once you've sorted the order out. Then they send the correct bits a few attempts later. The good part is you end up with a whole lot of extra bits. The bad part is they don't work for your bike which is why you had to get them changed.:lol3 45 days doesn't leave you much time. Good luck with it - and don't forget to let us know how it works out.

    We deal in the Mecasystem stuff, and other rally stuff, and we build and race rally bikes. So, we know what works. I'll ship parts anywhere. And you don't need to speak French.

    thanks

    JayBo,


    Wow!...That bike is a thing of beauty. :thumb And, it's the right color, too. :D

    So, Lukas put you up to posting a pic., huh? I think he does that kinda' stuff on purpose. Last year, he was parading around a 690RR that (he claimed) belonged to a "friend". Obviously, it's some kinda' conspiracy to ruin my savings account...


    EDIT- Just noticed the original thread date. Thanks alot, Rauseo! :freaky See what happens when you post in the middle of Dakar. :lol3
