rmx for work.

hi, i got a new rmx friday 23rd dec 2011 to replace my drz400e, so far i love riding the rmx, it is leagues ahead of drz in weight and handling, the seat feels hard but is comfortable, i have geared the bike down on the front spocket, added some fans to the radiators to help cool it at low speeds, i have put a switch on the head light and hour meter, and i might have to get a bigger tank as it wont do the amount of riding i can do in a day. i started a post on thumpertalk but then found this great forum so i will up date this from time to time and let you know how it goes.it will be riden everyday on the farm for moving sheep. so far 171km/10hrs and really happy with it.

Havent you checked that strainer JB?

Must be fun on the farm looking forward to seeing how it handles the kms as you clock em up...

Good tip on laying the bike down it is a bad feeling when you open that cover and all the bit drop on the floor.
It took me some working out to get back together.

ims tank

got an ims tank from rage racing today. fitted it up tonight, was pretty straight foward, just gave it a rinse with petrol to make sure it was clean, also cut a couple of bits of loose plastic from the thread of fuel cap, i ran a bolt thru the new threads as some were tight- just to make sure i didnt cross thread anything, then swapped the fuel pump and oring onto the new tank and put some gas in it to make sure it had sealed. bolted the new mount to the bike frame and put the tank on, just a wee trim of the shroud by the top bolt was needed with a pair of scissors, a quick test run down the road and all is good.filling the radiator might be a little tricky as the tank sits directly above-nothing a small funnel wont fix. here are the pics.491km/27hrs

ims update

first tankful and i have just about run out of fuel-maybe half a cupful left, i have done 103 kms and the hour meter shows ive done exactly 8.5 hrs of riding in that distance, i have removed the cherry bomb and put the exhaust restrictor and airbox lid back in, the lid has part of the snorkel cut away and a 10mm by 30mm hole cut in it- for a little more air (was done by dealer), the bike is really quiet now and easier to ride on the steep stuff and doesnt scare the sheep, but is more boring now that i know what i can go like!. i changed the oil at 30hrs- it was still pretty clear. now done 594km /35.5 hours.
