2. I routed my lines under the guards, and they are touching a tad on both sides. I put the rubber collecting ring in the place of contact, but what say ye on the vibrations, and future issues? Should I find a way where they lines don't touch at all? Thanks in advance for any advice.
But does he have KTM orange plastic shields?? I did not see them on the web site.

I don't know, but he sure in the hell has KTM white....

Seriously though, just shoot him an email @ degarate@highwaydirtbikes.com or PM him: theantipaul . I don't think/know if he does other colors, but he'll get back to you with an answer in no time .

I ran my 950 cables the same way. I did put a 3/8" spacer between the inboard end of the guard bar and the top clamp mount (couldn't bend the guard bar enough) and as it turned out, the cables don't hit at all.

Just my humble opinions based on my experiences over the years...

1.) You're not going to have any trouble with the reservoir at that angle. They can stand to be at pretty severe angles as long as they are properly filled and as long as you can get them back to a position near level when you need to refill them.

2.) You don't want any firm contact between a hydraulic line and a hard object if either flexes against the other. Sooner or later that's a recipe for the line becoming worn, perhaps leading to leaks. It, also a recipe for a line to get severely damaged if it gets suddenly jerked or drawn taut in a crash. IMHO you want at least some free play in the line and no edges for the line to get drawn across. Even a branch can grab a hydraulic line so the more freely it can move the better.

Again, just my personal thoughts... YMMV.

Thanks for the info. I'm still toying with the lines a tad bit, and at this point, I have no hard contact, but I'm not totally sure I like where they're sitting.

I got my package from HDB's and was thinking the same thing.

http://www.gpscity.com/ram-mount-mot...am-b-367u.html

This might be old news...
The link is saying the ball comes with a 8 mm bolt but looks to be a cap screw.
The thread on the side of the HDB top clamp is M8 / 1.25 pitch (same as the bolts that fix the clamp to the bar risers) which suggests the RAM ball could have a shorter cap screw fitted and it would mount to the side of the HDB clamp.
I am just going to order one and see......



I would have to say the quality and service from Paul was top notch.

Parts arrived all good.
All it needs is a M8 / 1.25 pitch cap screw around 40 mm long and a flat washer between the clamp and Ram ball so it does not dig into the clamp.

Clearance and fitment-wise, has anyone addressed using the HDB set up with a steering stabilizer?

Wish they would sell some larger plastic deflectors for cold weather. Otherwise I have no complaints with mine.

Hi Rapid Dog,

I have a GPRv4 under-bar mounted on my 2010 KTM 450 XC-W Six Days. Great setup for me, bolt-on installation. Sano. pics in my build thread over on the Ride Dual Sport forums:

http://ridedualsport.com/forum/index.php?topic=1086.0

I'm using everything Paul makes, it seems like - and I really like all the equipment. Computer protection, turn signals, of course the handguards - the whole works.

All the best,

Stovey

I love my HDB setup, but I wish more colors would become available.

Like Husaberg blue or yellow.

I have these guards on all of my bikes and they all have steering stabilizers. Fitment is not a problem. However, you should check with Paul for proper sizing of the top clamp since Emig top clamps, in particular, have a different size bolt pattern than Scotts. Great stuff! You won't be disappointed!

udpate

I finally got around to installing the HDB parts.

I've got to tell you all, these parts are Da Bomb!

Here are some pics of the items installed.
