Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

" " lol... I thought so too but they don't offer one at all. And one doesn't come with the kit either. https://www.rickystator.com/product/...harging-system

Oh and Phillip... R/R is abbreviated so I don't have to type regulator/rectifier every time.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

Scroll down. This has been listed on their site since you posted that. "Sorry, this product is currently OUT OF STOCK" No telling how long it will be out of stock.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

Any similar one will work. Just has to have the correct specs. Probly 1000 different ones on ebay right now. My Tucker Rocky book shows a Trail Tech one for $59.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

Finally broke down and went to using a battery. Really want to have compressor and gps charging available for K Trail next weekend. It ain't clean, but it is mechanically and electrically sound except for having to use blades on battery and rectifier.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

A while back someone here, (on a different thread) posted a picture of my wiring schematic, but actually done on the compter.... I can't remember what thread it was, but I'd like to have that.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

Why, I have yours pinned to the shop wall, best schematic out for that bike.

You can probably do this yourself for free at Digi-Key's PartSim - http://www.partsim.com/

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

Yeah, I mean someone took my schematic, and made this beautiful work of art with it. Or.... basically made a version of it like what you're talking about.

Heck, I can't find either right now. I think there's one on my old cell phone that didn't transfer over or something.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

So I had some time, meandering through posts this morning, and saw you were looking for schematics. So, having some time on my hands, waiting for SWMBO to give me my first Sunday order, I started over again at the beginning of this whole thread. I enjoyed the build the first time, too (well, most of it). As I went along, I came across a few posts that might be what you were after...If none of them are, well, I re-read portions of a good thread.

Found this one first:
http://www.twtex.com/forums/showpost...6&postcount=57

Followed by this one (a bit updated):
http://www.twtex.com/forums/showpost...3&postcount=59

This link, led to a decent article, with a few pictures in it (doubt it's really relevant to what you're after):
http://www.electrosport.com/technica...g-system-works

Here's a decent couple you posted:
http://www.twtex.com/forums/showpost...&postcount=449

I think this might be your hand-drawn one:

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

Heading to Big Bend this weekend on my XR that Aaron helped me dual sport a year or two ago. So far I haven't really put it through the paces except for a few Bastrop Trail rides.

I decided to make a rear rack for the bike and figured I'd post a pic.

This is a first version. My better half lovingly calls it stitches and tetanus. She may have a point.

I'll borrow a friend's drill press and go around the edges with holes so I have something to strap stuff to.

In the next version, I'll probably go around the edges with a piece of .5" steel so it won't be so sharp.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

Hey man!!! Good to see you back on here! I've used that fuel jug to the point I wonder how I'd gone this long without one. Fixing to use it again this week, hopefully if I get my jeepster ready to fire up. We'll see.

You could zip tie some rubber hose around the edge after you drill the holes or glue it some how.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

Easy solution----

Go to auto zone and get that chrome door lip moulding all the vatos put on their cars.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

how about using a cutting board bolted on top of your rack...they're dirt cheap and can be found in every grocery store...

That is exactly what i do on my KTM. I have a small rack and when I want more space I bolt the poly cutting-board on. I have some slots cut in that i can slip straps through.

You can see the edge under the dry bag in this photo.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

That's a good idea.

FYI, the weekend went well. No wrecks, no flats. My friend on the Husqvarna 610 dropped us like a hot potato on the trails. I like to think it's because he has a performance bike, but really he's just fast. My rack worked well. I have time to add a down turn t the edges to blunt them.

We did Glenn Springs to Black Gap starting at dusk and finished the River Road coming into Castolon around 9:30. I love me some night time riding.

All in all the XR did great. I need to get a bigger tank and some real lights. I could only see about 20' in front of me at night. I'll be going through this thread and dialing that in over the next week or so.

@Aaron- glad to know you're using it. Makes things really easy. I may just add the vato door edging just so my bike looks a little cooler...

Yeah, hate to say it but I was at the Baja Rally all last week & Jenny Morgan was posting top-15 stage times on hers vs. all kinds of KTM & Husky race bred machinery!

Unless you want to upgrade the stator (which I DO NOT recommend as the OEM unit is pretty much Honda bombproof and all the aftermarkets seems give trouble) you'll need to go LED on lights. I used the Cyclops & was very happy with the unit & the service from them. The only thing is to be sure & protect it from the heat of the oil cooler.

Re: THE TWTex XR400 Thread.

DOH. Pics. I suck at that. I always get too busy riding or enjoying the quiet desert. Or in this case, trying to keep up with my friend on the Husqvarna.

I'd say I'll do better next time, but that never seems to happen.
