Ordered a 690 fender yesterday. Thanks for the R&D on this. The hugger fender has been a concern of mine, and I have a big trip planned in October.

Right now I'm thinking I might try to keep the beak, use the back half of the KTM fender, and maybe utilize an extended brake line to tie up the cross over brake line out of the way.

I may end up eventually just putting the whole fender on and eliminating the beak, I dunno.

I am on the trial version of the half fender build. I already see a few changes I need to make, but I could make dublicates of the second prototype, if you are interested.

I'm always interested in your bike bling!

I'm fascinated with the CF work. I want to delve into it myself, just have to find the time and money to throw at all the materials and tools I need.

Whats new

1st: Amazing Build!

2nd: Whats new, where does it stand now?

3rd. Anyway to weigh your bike compared to a tourateche'd out one? I am curious of the weight savings. Besides the fact that it looks sick!

The weight savings would probably not amount to too much plus I have added additional weight with the camel tank. Not too much has changed since my last post. I put the camel tank on, added some bar risers and fiddled with the electronics. I will probably be putting on a 18inch tubeless rear shortly. I have mostly been putting miles on the bike.

Haven't done too much over the winter, I finally assembled everything to put my Rox Risers on top of my Scotts bracket. Since I have heard that the risers like to get a little twisted if you go down I built a CF spacer that keeps them a little more sturdy.

That's at least 15 wedding rings.....

Well I am not into multiple wives so it will stay as a spacer, it is solid besides the core for the bolt and the aluminum sleeve. I will be drilling/tapping out three holes to run headset screws to secure the M8 bolt as well which is hubbed to the ends of the threads in the risers. It won't be immune to flex but definitely more rigid that it was before. Plus it looks cool! Now I just need to decide when I will tear off the fairings and run a new brake line and clutch cable.....

Upgrades

So I finally put my Rox Risers on last night, since I have these on top of a Scotts Damper I had to put longer clutch and brake cables to accommodate the added height. I had Motion Pro make a cable for myself and Erling since he donated one for the specs for Motion Pro and then I had spiegler make a custom brake line to go from the handlebar to the ABS interface. I also put in a new K&N airfilter. I had bought a few OEM replacements when I bought the bike and had no issue with them but like to minimalize waste so went with the K&N. All told I am very happy with the setup. It permits me to sit farther back on the Renazco seat and reduces my forward lean and makes it easier to stand up vertically.

Message the poster as opposed to cluttering a different post: answer is that it is a cut down wind screen that was spray painted.

Completed risers (brakes were bled today). The combo with the Scotts Damper and riser work great at least regarding my 3 beer sit on the bike in the garage test drive. I purposely extended my cables in case I decide to put on larger risers but want to test these out first.
