My cousin rode his 97? 98? 605 on the TAT this year.

He is as mechanically inclined as a road cone... so me and my father (also an ATK owner) are his mechanics.

Where'd he put the extra fuel?

2.5gal rear tank. Company in Australia makes them. Actually for a KTM I think.

Sits on top of the fender, and the NON exaust side comes down and integrates into the number plates...

We RE fabricated all the rear fender hangers and braces etc to accept it. Fits nice once done.

Sorry these are the best pictures I have of it right now (computer crash last month, still trying to retrieve all the files off the old one)...

I'd like to see what y'all did to that subframe... I hear they're not designed to support weight.

Did the bike handle differently?
Did he run the rear tank out first?

Always ran the rear tank out first. We did throw in a bunch of sports for the sub frame, being that he was hauling fuel, his 225lb butt, and the LARGE back pack full of gear....

260LQ Wiseco Piston Kit # 701M06800 : 3 ounces lighter than stock: faster rev.
250LQ Wiseco Piston Kit # 701M06750
Wiseco Wrist Pin Bearing # B1003A
Wiseco Top End Gasket Set # W5566
Boysen Reed # 670
Moto Tassinari V-Force 3 # V306A-M :I use the V-Force 2 (same as KTM 250 93-97)
Paoli Blue Steel 46mm : Same as 2000 Honda XR650R Flanders Part number 401-90155
Fork Seal Size: 46x58x10.5/11mm
Rear Brake Rotor Shark fin: Deval for 99 KTM: Needs minor filing along top to clear swingarm.
Rear sprockets same as RM 250
Chain Guide shell: The stock is flimsy caused me to not finish race: Carbon Fiber Shell YZ250
Paoli Fork bushings, Get Bushing kit for CR500
Rear Brake Rotor is an ATK specific part. I suggest ordering one as a spare. ATK hasn't produced a new bike in a year or more.
Front Rotor is the same as a 270mm KTM if I remember right.
The shifter on the LQ's was custom made for ATK, theres no direct replacement. If you can find the one with the Grey rubber tip buy it. The black rubber tipped ones was CHEAP and easily destroyed.
The factory has some white plastic in stock, or did have, for the KTM styled side panels, I know where to get the KTM style number panels and rear fender in black.

So, I've had the bike since Tues and haven't managed to get a ride on it yet. Work(sucks) has been getting in the way.

WP suspension and not Paioli.
Looks as good as the first pics in the thread.

I got a headlight assy with it. Also got a pair of turn signals for the rear. Need a tail light assy and pressure switches for the brakes. Making it legal is job 1. After that, adding a starter. I'm a bit short to get my leg up high enough to kick the beast over. Who has a few inches of leg they can donate?!

Normally, I don't work on Sunday. There's a home show on and the leads are flying fast and furious. Soooo no ride tomorrow either!

Any of y'all in Tucson have a hitch mounted bike carrier they wanna lend me till I can get my own?

Since I've been looking at Dennis Kirk... I'm even more than I was before.

WTF do I need to put brake switches on this thing so I can make er street legal?

How bout a fender with a light assy on it?

I'm guessing the answer is 'call Utah.'

You need banjo bolt switches.
No springs to hookup or worry about.
Works off brake pressure.
I used the same thing on my ATK 260 to get brake lights on it.
