This bike has just had a no expense spared rebuild ready for its next trip. Unfortunately due to a change of circumstance. It won't be me riding it. So it's looking for a good home, where it will be used for the purpose it was built for.
The bits by Overland Solutions
KTM rally rear tanks fitted holding an additional 14 L of fuel and giving a range of 750 km+ on road. Custom panniers and pannier frames made. The panniers are built round the fuel tanks, so the bike is no wider. Panniers are 2m thick, so they will take a beating. Locking and keyed alike. Luggage racks on rear of panniers. Tie downs on inside and outside of lids. Document pocket inside one pannier, so documents are always to hand. They have been powder coated white, outside to reflect heat and inside so everything doesn't go black. The panniers and frames can be removed to use soft luggage with the tanks. A custom back rack has been made to use with the tanks. Original back rack and side panels supplied.
Bits by Marsh Performance
Swampy did a full engine and rear suspension rebuilt at 20,000 miles, including dynamically balancing the crankshaft for less vibration, new clutch and a rally camshaft. The gear selector fork was also moded. I told him to replace everything he didn't like the look of. He even put on new chain and sprockets and numberplate for me. Yes, it was expensive and I have got the receipt.
New Twin air filter
Touratech headlight protector
Heated grips and bark Busters, so lightweight gloves only needed
12 V cigarette lighter type socket for (sat) phone charging or your hair dryer
Low octane switch on dashboard
Fork pressure release buttons
Rally foot pegs
Brand new chain and sprockets
Heavy duty innertubes with sealant and spare
Handlebars full of shot to stop vibration and Bar end weights with groove for hammock users.
Custom side stand fitted. Custom centre stand also supplied.
A full spares kit will be supplied with the bike.
Including clutch and clutch gasket.
Tappit cover gaskets
Locking fuel caps
The bad bits
The tyres are not 100%. I have left them on, because they are good enough to get me to Africa. I was going to take a new set of knobblys with me and put them on one I got there.
Mechanically, the bike is hundred percent. Anything, I was not happy with on my last trip has been replaced. Everything has been tested. It is as good as it will get.
A lot of time and money has been spent on this bike and I will be be gutted to let it go. But due to rather unfortunate injury, I no longer have need of it. The bike is taxed, and I have put 12 months MOT on it.
