It is a good fairing.....considering my freaking crash and how little it got damaged. but I have not painted it yet....

The fairing indeed is molded on the Ktm 640 and elongated to brace the acerbis g/s tank. You then can cut it and do whatsoever...

Mr Frankenbeemer, do you have any contacts about where to get that fairing on your BMW ?? After riding a KTM950 on the weekend and deciding it's not for me I want trick up my AT 750 a bit, I'd like to replace the headlights / fairing with something different / lighter and that looks like it would be great. any help would be apprciated.

Greg

Mr Frankenbeemer?

Greg, I have the same fairing but unfortunately, I cut off the name of the company that produces them. You'll have to wait for frankenbeemer to reply. I got mine from him.

fairings

Greg, the mold is in Italy. They are made by an artisan on a order basis. They could be made with Fiberglass, Carbonfiber, or Kevlar.

I have a spare fiberglass one here in Maryland. Write me a private email and I tell you everything you need to know.

Um... I bought a elefant. 12B said to tell y'all here.

It's blue and has sat for 5 years.

7000 miles and has regulator problems. Anything I should be sure to check?

Congrats on the new ride. Get a new regulator/rectifier, K&L p/n 20-3453, made for 888, 851, M900, 900SS & 916. It'll work on your E900. Usually cheaper than stock Duc parts.

That was going to be the first thing I asked about.

Second thing I was gonna ask, The rims have spokes, I think there are tubes... but the service manuel doesn't mention tubes, and the tires on it say 'tubeless'. I know you can put tubeless tires on tubed rims with tubes in them. ( I've done that before)

I guess I just want to know for sure that there are tubes on the bike and what size to order.

I don't want to make this a 'favorite tire' post.

Yep tube type

The rims are tube-type. Order the tubes the size that would correspond to the tires. IIRC, 140/80-17 for the rear and 90/90-21 for the front. Is that about right?

His has a 19" front on it. It was shod with MT60s, I think.

Sorry

It seems I'm getting more and more senior moments. Or maybe it's because I have different bikes that I have to change rim sizes on all of them. Let see, Africa Twin stock rims sizes are 17 and 21. One bike is still stock (what's the matter with me?) and the other is 18 and 21. GS stock sizes are 17 and 19. Mine are 18 and 21. I can see how I messed up on the front size of the Elefant. But I would have changed it to a 21. Yeah, that's it.

Jim.

Okay, I'll order some tubes and tape.

And I think it's a 90/100 19 front. Maybe a 100/90 19...


yeah 100/90 19.
