(ahem, I mean 'serious altitude testing' in Colorado of course!)

That way we can ship the bike during August, prep it in the UK during September, and have both team bikes ready for the Maroc Rally in October - that is the pencilled plan at the moment anyway!

Jenny,
I'm planning to be in Colorado riding my rallized 690R the last week of June and the first week of
July.I would be happy to help you with testing/ be your waterboy if you would like.Ron @ KTMTWINS knows
me via the telephone as we spoke quite often while I was waiting for all my parts from RALLY RAID UK.
Just a thought. Fritz

Cheers Barrier & Jenny, makes sense. Four of us from the UK will be in a "team" for the Hellas so we'll see you in Greeece, I'll come and say hi

We have been CNC machining the first crank web today,to suit the new crankpin,This is 12,5mm nearer the centre than the OEM pin,so reducing the stroke by 25mm.
Although the crank was fairly hard,we used a solid carbide cutter,which worked well.
You can see the extra 12,5mm length in the new rod,compared to the standard rod.

John has been prepping his 690 [engined] Rally bike this week for the Tuareg Rally next month... his bike spec will essentially be the basis of the LC4-50 bike we'll race at the Hellas, and Dakar 2014... and he'll be race-testing the TracTive shock in Tunisia as part of the chassis development...

He's also got some fancy graphics fitted!
