Is a good deal?

I can buy a 43 l touratech tank, plus engine guards 500 € + shipping... Is a good deal? Are those tanks reliable?

Airbrush (no stickers, all paint - PPG), WP 48mm forks from KTM Adventure 950, Wilbers competition etc.

Beautiful work! I need to learn how to airbrush now!

New or used? New price for both is around €1300. So less than half price sounds fair, but as always, it depends on their condition. The tank is made of PA6. Do some googling about PA6 durability. There are some horror stories out there about PA6 deforming on Ducati's and some other brands. I've had my TT tank for just over 12 months and haven't had any issues with it all.

If you have a need to carry 43 litres on your bike then there's no better way to carry it IMHO.

My TT tank is over 10 years old. Bought second hand from a mate a few years ago after he sold his AT. Never had any issues.

And if you get the crashbars with it that fit the tank- great. Touratech are the only guys that make bars for the big tank.

Bought 6Sigma kit some time ago. It looks well made, but I still didn't managed to put it in the bike.

Hey novack, through your post on XRV I found about 6sigma :)
I am thinking about rejeting my RD04 for a bit more power.
If you install the kit in the near future please write your impressions.

Thoughts on the following RD04 rally fairing? Original post and more photos here: http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/africa-...fairing-2.html

150 Euro from Perfect Fairings (Greek company).

Depends on what you're after

Much more of a "Rallye" look....but I'd bet much LESS wind/rain protection.

If I were going to ride the bike long distances I think the standard RD04 fairing and maybe an extended windscreen is best.

The only problem with the standard one is that it makes it difficult (for me at least) to get the bars far enough forward to have good position when standing. The bars contact the fairing at full lock if moved up to the point where I need them to be. WMMV.

Also - difficult to tell from the one photo - but "Perfect" fairings don't exactly look to....uhmmm....perfect. See gap between side fairing and nose fairing.

I'd be interested in seeing some more of that cockpit set up. Looking for solutions for my rd03.

Jako lepa motora, bravo majstore!

On Durmitor, yeah, it's really good there... I need to get my ass down and write this summer's ride report...

The world is quite small nowadays ;) I've crossed the Serbia twice last september. Beautiful country!
Here's my @ at the Bulgarian-Serbian border:


I'll inform You of results with this kit, but I don't think I'll do that this season unfortunately.
