my relocation project shud be done tonight or tomorrow, time allowing...

from Rascal's pics the CRF battery is definately narrower...

i'm still trying to decide on how to vent the airbox...on the number plate vents how did u install/attach a filter screen? i haven't gotten around to searching that one. :thumbsup:

...and i'm wondering if right side vents will just end up sucking in hot air from the exhaust? :thumbsup:

I found some almost pipe screen material at Lowes. I used JB weld to attach it, but didn't last long.

Will probably rivet.

...crap! did the CRF battery relocation mod with some air openings around the battery/old shorkle location plus six additional 1" holes with the UniFilter pre-filters installed and as soon as i wacked the throttle it coughed & sputtered :thumbsup: got back to the house and it had sucked the filters out of the prefilters...:thumbsup: ...i guess it wants more air! :thumbsup:

Been riding in Colorado, getting stuck in snow banks on Hurricane pass. Muy hard pushing a bike at 13,000ft. When locals say a trail is closed, I really should listen.

"ObamaMod" ?!?

...hot air generator?!? :thumbsup:

...the screen looks gud, for my application i wud probably add some oiled foam behind the screen...i see too many water crossings and need to prevent an easy path for water to flow into the airbox...

pics coming as soon as i get the bugs worked out but it's not unlike the previously posted pics...

Kenzo, where are those pics you promised us?:rant: :lol:


well here it is... a CRF450X battery relocated under the seat...just copied wut the other boyz did...

ended up with 11 - 1" holes between the side cover and right side of the air box to get piggy to breath correctly, currently have the Uni PreFilters in the holes...i cud have done a better job planning their locations but it worked out ok...:D


Posted Image
...the side shot...there is an aluminium strap helping to maintain the battery's location that u can't see but i don't think it's neccessary...



Posted Image
...the wiring under the seat with room to spare...u can barely see two of the PreFilters above the +terminal just outside the upper frame...




Posted Image
...shot of the vented XR600R sidecover w/PreFilters installed...:ride:




Posted Image
...and the money shot...look ma no saddlebag! :p



the bike looks soooo much better...it really cleaned things up!;) :p

i'm gunna put it on the scales a see wut it weighs...but piggy is about a trim as it's going to get!

:mad:

What kind of rear fended are you using?

  • Kenzo

Posted July 27, 2008 - 06:46 AM


...just got done weighing the bike...*drumroll*...

...333lbs with ~3 gallons of fuel & loaded tool bag...with gas at ~7lbs/gallon it puts the bike at a true weight less fuel of 315lbs :p

What kind of rear fended are you using?


it's the stock fender with all the crap removed...rear footpegs, turnsignal mounts, stock turn signals replaced w/Buell style signals, stock tail light/license plate holder removed/replaced, rear fender sub-frame and the battery box & frame...all gone :ride: ;)

gotta ride...

:rant:
