We took occasion for jaccuzi which is ouside. Picture shows ‘hot guys’ and german elderly people behind. Everyone in warm windproof jacket Jazuzzi was filled with ocean water traeted as engine coolant.
Shetlands Ilands. North UK part
I decided to reduce torque in my Pig and mount 15T sprocket instead of OEM 14T. Sprocket calculator says that moving from 14/48 to 15/48 will reduce torque by +7.1% and increase speed by +7.1%. What about sprocket diameter?
XR’s 520 chain we can find pitch size (one chain link length) equal to 5/8″ (15.875mm).
14T radius = 35.372 mm and 15T radius = 37.899. It makes 2.529 difference in radius.
Customized over original

Freeplay distance between guard and chain
Paper thick distance between guard and clutch lever.
Final look after powder painting
Set contains two magnets: bolt like and small break disc hole sized. You can find both mounted below (bolt first on right).
Magnet installation manual says to avoid in lining with magnet sensor
Do not mount so that the magnet passes the middle section of the sensor. Either
the sensor will not register at all; or the sensor will register twice, causing a
“double trigger” effect (computer displays twice the true speed.)
Drilling screw hole for magnet sensor
Coolant temperature sensor should be connected between engine and thermostat. Remove rubber pipe.
Ignition Control Module (under seat) and Ignition Coil (under tank) are connected with two wire line: Green (Minus) and Black-Yellow (Plus). I soldered red Vapor cable with Black-Yellow coil cable.
Once you generate your custom map using MOBAC (Mobile Atlas Creator) copy map to ……/osmand/tiles directory. You can use local phone memory or external sdcard memory. (NOTE: since Android 4.4 Osmand might have issue with sdcard access. In case of issues please use local phone storage)
Start Osmand and go to settings
Select plugins and enable Online map support. Don’t be deceived by “Online” label. This plugin will enable your offline map.
Go one level up to main settings and you will find new section called “Online maps”. Select “online and tile maps” (another plugin “master switch”). Select “Tile map source”. You should find your custom map listed here.
Now you can navigate over base map and find your customized area:
Depends how much tile layes has been downloaded (map below contains14 layes) you can zoom in for more detailed view.
Pictures below are for comparison purposes only. I applied strong JPG compression and make some detailed titles unreadable. Each picture represents Reykjavik area
I was searching for good paper Iceland map. Yesterday i got chance to rewiew few.
It’s my favorite graphic. But maybe i just got used to classic maps. ISBN: 9783829738620
Main advantage are petrol station marks. You can find here some other POI. ISBN 9783707913200. I can understand if someone dislike this color pattern. Another Freytag & Berndt map 1:400 000 represents same detail level. It’s only slightly larger.
Very detailed. Highest precision. Below legend with all supported marks. Everything described in four languages: Icelandic, English, French and German. ISBN: 9789979672098 9789979672099
I bought recently rear seat bag made by 21brothers (http://www.21brothers.eu/). Main site has limited description that’s why i decided to publish some more details here.
Product quality is very high. Lot of additional mounts and straps
Both ends has additional cordura like layers. You don’t need to afraid that bike fall will wear out bag.
Straps are stitched all the way
Central point has additional hooks. You can mount bag two ways. Either use hooks or main strap
At the bottom you have bottle pocket. Two ends, two pockets. Additional velcro strap protects bottle from fall.
All stitches seamed. This is back side of mount straps.
Strengthen seat part
Strong big tooth zip will survive highest loads. One drawback here. It’s not fully waterproof zip. It’s designed to hide behind flap (see bottom of picture). I’m not sure what is market availability for waterproof big tooth zips. Maybe it’s available only for smaller zip’s that’s why it’s not here.
Together with Pete we spent whole sunday creating pannier system for my Honda. I ordered base frames from Michał Merta (http://mertaspecialparts.com/). Piotr welded everything together and build fantastic system.
Left down tube has been connected with side stand. We decided to make additional hook. This arm surrounds side stand plate. Screw keeps it on place, it’s not taking much pressure.
Another look of left tube
Right tube uses one side stand bolt. This is very thick flat (6mm) so angle should not change under pressure.
Below you can compare quite popular almost equivalent tyres:
TKC depth: 11mm
K60 depth: 11 mm
If you ever wonder how much your bike will go up with 140/80 insted 150/70, below you can find radius difference: 24mm. So rear wheel will go up 12mm after 150 -> 140 change.
