Quit smoking... fast!

"Where's the ash tray?" Nev ? ... You just drop the glowing cig butt down that little hole under the black cap with the yellow hose in the middle... The nicotine craving dissapears almost instantly!

I was siting here thinking how trick is the adjustable roadbook holder mount -



But then I though it only alows you to adjust the angle, like a normal mount does, but it requires more work to do so? (this shows my GPS holders, but the RB holder mounts the same way)


KTm's getting as bad as BMW putting extra crap on bikes for the looks, not the function.

And whats up this sleeve...?

What the picture doesn't show is the elongated holes that allow the nav pod to be raised and lowered also... Thats why the the turnbuckle strut for adjustability/stability.

I'm sure the boy's in the back room at Mattighoffen will be kicking themselves when they see your trick state of the art "hot water pipe bracket" GPS mounting solution Rhys...

PS: About the "putting extra crap on bikes for looks... not function" bit...

I always wondered what level of protection a protaper bar/clamp pad offers when one has a solid aluminium RB holder, tripmeter cluster, GPS, washer dryer and espresso machine mounted ABOVE them... It's not like it's the steering head that's gonna be the first thing your melon or chest comes in contact with ist it!


... Oh... you say it's for the "fambily jubels"... better get rid of that acerbis gas cap then too...

Also, the the bolts for the elongated and non-elongated holes have rubber mounts, yet the struts don't. So the struts give it extra strength, but allow more vibration through. Thats why the the turnbuckle strut for adjustability/stability.

I'm sure the boy's in the back room at Mattighoffen will be kicking themselves when they see your trick state of the art "hot water pipe bracket" GPS mounting solution * Rhys... So they should, does the same job, only 2 bolts to adjust it (not 4 and 2 struts) and it'll rotate in an impact (from the riders head / chest / love spuds )

If figure put as much crap up there as posible, to spread the impact over a bigger area of your body and disipate the energy in a less concentrated, severe manner

* "My" trick state of the art "hot water pipe bracket" GPS mounting solution is actually
Part Number:58212090144
Description:ROADBOOK CARRIER CPL. ADV. 01

So the boy's in the back room at Mattighoffen actually designed it too

Reply from TSC:

When I mentioned the rb brackets... I was refferring to the copper brackets not the frame... the frame is indeed a KTM part as you correctly point out

Re : Clarification

copper !!! Thats annodized steel buddy ....



and there from Touratech, I have good idea's, terrible construction skills.

earlier today I spent about 1/2 an hout attempting to remove the float bowl. Fooking screws still didn't budge. I sense a dremel in there future.

Thakfully I redemed myself, as I just put the forks, shock and swing arm back on the 640. all in correctly, to the corect torque. took me about 3/4 of an hour.

V-Max Enduro

I don't know if it was ever mentioned, but your thread just caught my eye. I see this thread is old and has morphed into something completely different, but as a former Vmaxxer, I've see than Enduro Vmax. It is basically a display bike made by F. Maerz Vmax in Germany. They are Vmax nuts and work on almost nothing else.

KTM nerds swapping yarns...

You see; there was this swedish koala, a frenchman and a bloke from Gosford sitting in a bar...


As far as the RB mount on the new LC4 Rallye goes... I couldn't find a picture (better than this one or the one that you printed) that shows it in greater detail... but I was under the impression when I saw the bike that the rubber mounted upper mounting bolts (yellow arrow) had slotted holes (in the aluminium subframe plates behind) that allowed for adjustment... (I could be wrong).

As far as the turn buckle struts are concerned... IIRC I think that the bottom mount (to the frame head stem) is a rubber bushed heim joint... for compensating for the "vibes."

If not... then you have something to tinker with when you pick your up from the dealer later next month RJF...


Regards your float bowl screws... were they those "impossible to unscrew with a phillips head driver without chewing out the screw head cheap shit M6 Mikuni" type screws...? I replaced mine with M6 metric hex heads on my old LC4 for just that reason...

Cheers!
