    The lines in black and white are the steps I need, and if you have a photo of how to fix to the the chassis.

    I hope to clarify the steps that i need.

    Cheers mate.

    "hands-on, something will come out, send photos of the process"

    Mezo,

    Looks like Teti is all set. He wanted some rough measurements - which he got thanks to you guys translating and Mudguts measuring. He is going to work on it and will send pictures when done.


    Teti,

    La proxima vez que necesitas ayuda con una traduccion, puedes mandarme un mensaje privado.

    Saludos,
    Lukas

    Absolutely agree Mezo, that's why I was the first to reply to the same thread in the Thumpers forum.

    I love rally bikes and especially people posting pictures of their build-ups! :clap

    ok muchas gracias

    sobre el tema de consumo de corriente, el generador de la 530 tiene 150w y viene con lampara de 35w, se puede llevar a 55w o sobrecargo mucho el alternador y regulador de voltaje ?
    la idea es montarle un HID (55w) para la baja, y cambiarle la optica con la futura mascarilla o fairing ( en proceso de fabricacion).

    saludos a todos y suerte

    yes you could do it that way ,you will find the there is allready a hole thought the frame neer the head stem you could utillise that , or weld on a boss. i think fabricating a simple boss is far stronger then the bolt on you will find that bolt will come loose after a while .

    Threaded rivets ( cative nuts, nut serts) tend to come loose unless welded

    good thinking thou, there is alot of stress where the Nav mounts to the frame with all the pounding the bike gets bolts can come loose , if you work out the leaverage ratio for 1lb onthw top of the nav bracket to where it mount to the frame you be suprised, the most common weld on mount look like the letter B thats welded on to head stem , that what 99% of the dakar bikes use because it works

    veru east to make , you can do it will hand tools and a block of chro'mo steel ( same as bike frame

    For what its worth, thats how MecaSystem seem to mount it. (ie bolted to the frame - with a bigger contact surface area - rather than the RSConcept which is meant to bolt to the stem.

    mook the boss is welded to the frame . the boss is a solid block compared to 2.5 chro-mo plate where teti want to bolt it , i beieve the Mecca boss is weld on as well.

    Id agree - welding would be strongest.
    The bike in the pics is a Patsy Quick / Meca-built bike - nothing welded that I saw (but maybe they do now..)
    From pics I had seen posted, I thought the RSConcept was also bolted (but bolted to the stem) - maybe no-one does that anymore...

    By the way, mudders, what step-up in fork springs have you gone for to handle the extra fuel? (before and after spring weights)

    Did you have suspension set up before you added the tank? What was it then?

    Im trying to get a feel for the suspension change the tank requires.
