Here are a few picks from last week.I did install the IMS Rally pegs,45t super sprocket and the Billet chain gaurd.
I am still waiting on my Custom Seat Concepts Tall seat,KTM Low Rally fender along with my GPR Staplizer to show up.
I hope to install my custom Rally Low pipe, BRP chain block a set of twin chamber (300mm travel) WP forks and the reworked rear shock by this weekend.

Is this a new Akro map from KTM?

If so, does it assume an aftermarket air filter?

It is an Akra map and I believe it's best with the opened up air filter, that's what I have. But I'm not really a techo junkie pretend to be expert so you need to check.

I want a low front fender, but ain't spending $500 for the privilege! Does anyone know where to get a cheap knock off front fender like 990?

But I do like to use a Short Super Moto style Fender on my Score race Bikes

I have never had this problem.

SM fender looks amazing but in muddy/wet shit it won't protect you from getting covered in the front.
The enduro fender is better in wet weather because it reaches down farther than the SM fender.
The low fender is the best for wet weather/light mud... but in mud from something like clay.. it can lock up the front tire and be scary as fook.

On my 640 in the North Navada rally I picked up a rock in the front tire and it locked up my front tire for a split second in a corner. I hate washing the front tire out... so I don't use low fenders anymore. Maybe the stock 640 fender was to close to the tire.
