Does that fairing come with mounting brackets or did you have to fabricate your own brackets?

Tank mounts

When you have the tanks off again, could you post some pics of how they mount.

Thanks.

Tonnage

Do you know the weight without fuel? Does the bike handle differently with a slightly further forward weight bias?

Can't tell you yet have not been for a ride yet but the set up is very light , I dont think it will make a big difference all the weight is down low.

Yup, you are.

There off of a ktm690 Rallye, along with the fairings. You cant really find a 'kit' for them, there quite hard to find and big $$$ when you do.

Ask Lukas for more info if you want to learn more.

ok thats what i thought but when pics started popping up i got excited.

so perhaps another stupid question - is the 690 enduro frame simular to the rallye? or are they seperately engineered bikes?

can't say i've ever been close enough to a rallye to investigate.

Hey I cant blame you! I absolutely LOVE watching the build up of these bikes too. They are simply a thing of beauty.

I do not know if they use the same frame as well but I doubt it. Im sure someone will come along and give you a better answer than I will but in the mean time let me find you a link to keep you entertained for a while...

Not correct. ... these are a specific kit for the 690 E/R out of Italy ... its different from the 690RR Rally stuff... the tanks are different and the fairing is slightly different. Just using the same styling queues.

The 690 E/R kit is here ... http://www.albertodottori.net/ktm%20...ica%20race.htm

2000 EUR and its yours (14 litres of additional tanks, fairings, lights) ... tho from what I have seen you will want to change the headlights that come with the kit over to something a bit more useful. I am not sure they are proper headlights.

Bashplate is carbon fibre and holds 3 litres of water ,,, but that doesnt come with the kit. You might have to ask Alberto to sell you that separately

agreed that link for cyrils bike the front end is completely different.

they look nice. his website (alberto) shows the meca systems kits (rally pan-am selling these) and a safari tank.


this pic is off his website but same as the pan-am guys. $1400USD with mounting kit fuel lines etc lights extra.

sorry my bad the above is a acerbis tank so that might be custom.

the pan - am kits use safari tanks. as below

they do a aluminum front tank for rough F&^Kers like me.

Actually Colebatch is correct.

The above bike as well as the one Mudguts is building use a kit from Alberto Dottori. It converts the front of the 690E or R with twin tanks and the fairing to look like a 690 Rally Replica.

IMO it looks heaps better than the other solutions from Mecasystem, Safari, etc. But Rally Panam in the US sells all of them I believe.
