What are you waiting for? Winter? I machined down the stem to fit taper roller bearings in the AT steering head.

HAVE YOU CHANGED THE REAR SHOCK?
IT SEEMS LIKE THE REAR END IS LOWER.

Hey there AT owners!
I just changed myself an AT.
Only little over 300km on it until now, but it feels great!

Stock shock. It's just the angle of the picture.

Side view.

Image IS everything. While the AT is still relatively stock height, my TA is raised.

Front Mudgard & Fork Brace

Anyone got any recommendations on fitting a High Rise Front Mudguard/Fender for the standard forks ?

Also would it be reasonable to do away with the fork brace that's under the original guard.

Have just fitted a 100 width front tyre and there is not much clearance.

Some once have put a Ktm 80cc front muddgard, it looks very good.

Any pictures. Was thinking and old XL500 front might do the trick. Only concern is the mounting and the amount of clearance on the rear of the guard when turning. Ie rub on frame.

I know this from my @.

I've canged my front forks with a KTM 620 front and it is obviously higher than stock front.
I set on my friends @ with OEM front, it felt like a CBR with the lean forward angle...
I'm now wating to put a rear shock.
BTW, who knows why i can't enter this guys album.few monthes ago i could.
