From Holan.pl - I got the "light" version, came with excellent packing, installation was straightforward and fit perfectly. You will need some muscle to align the two bars where the bolts go through,,but then that tension is useful in keeping everything tight.

Same place: www.holan.pl

I looked at the more modern plastic cover, but I decided to go old skool with the metal grille and really happy I did 8) It looks like the old Dakar machines!

I like mine a lot too. I think they look way nicer than the plastic ones. I got lucky and found one here used. Wish the previous owner would have had one on, low beam lens was busted when I bought it.

When using a standard KTM 21" front wheel (EXC,XC,XC-W..) does your speedometer still work? I am trying to figure where the pick-up is located on the wheel or rotor. I see the sensor located on the fork leg.

The magnet is located on the brake rotor on the EXC, there's a hole for in the rotor and it's retained by a circlip. The sensor is on the brake caliper.

Cheers,

My 2002 adv reads the rotor bolts.

After testing in the sand dunes - in which the bike was totally at home! - and the resulting video:

I've bought a T15 front sprocket to see how that interacts with the stock 42 rear, and if it makes the bike snappier in the sand.

When I had my 640A I used to toggle back and forth between a 15 and a 17 along with the 42 rear. I found it perfect for poking around on double track or the 17 on the road.

By flipping the axle spacer around no chain tension adjustment was needed.

A FCR carb would make it snappier in the sand.

Great Vid mate. I will be visiting Dubai for a few days in June. Is there somewhere that hires bikes and gear, so I could get out in the dunes?
