Badazz Billet Blingage, Buu-dee!

Had some time to fit my new blingage that I got from CJ this week...

Found out I'd crushed a bit of the oil filter cover o-ring, so rather than simply replacing it (would be the simple way... or the way I'd do it if my bike was a KLR ), why not order a billet cover (o-ring included) from CJ?



In anticipation of the arrive of my new Rekluse EXP, I ordered up a titanium/polycarb clutch cover ("oh hell, while I'm at it, let me have one of those billet brake pedal tips, too." )



And to round off the "touch of orange" to my soon-to-be all black bike (getting my black Safari tanks put on next week... once my brother finishes our "top-secret experiment" on them ) I also have a set of CJ's orange peg extenders on their way (Thanks for cranking those out, CJ )

Oh, by the way CJ... I have the feeling I'm gonna be needing an orange tail rack

2nd fan deflector...

finally second fan deflector- notice the sweet smily face spacer- stole it from a kids bracelet- little bastard should wearing a ktm watch not some girly bracelet anyhow- some parents just know how to raise a kid.

The double nut will go after I score a shorter bolt tomorrow- just didnt want to loctite it and have to take it off- at the same time I didnt want to forget and have it fall off- just covering my ass here.
Installed a couple relays for heated grips and what ever else I need to power- used the taillight wire for the control voltage.

Now for question - ktmkevin you may have an answer here ? Tell me how these relays get wired. I have done these in the past but had to dink around figuring it out. Here is a close up.



Next question for the fiberglass expert. Need to mount a ram mount on my Rally Raid shield. my original mount is fatiguing the fiberglass so I want to build it up and mount a larger mount. Can I just lay up over the existing faberglass or do I need to put some holes in it so it can bond into , the original is not smooth but does not seem to be rough enough for the epoxy to bond to decently ? Could use some advice on this. No I dont want to mount it to my dash - I have it there for a reason, I really like the way it works for 2 different GPS's I run.

Excuse my ignorance.
Where did you get the 2nd fan cowl for the RHS of the bike.
I have the fan kit and need to fit it soon but wanted to put in the deflector and some more heat insulation at the same time.

Cheers,
Rob

I used the regular shroud, trimmed and adjusted to fit.

Got the stock Scorp's off and TKC80's on and balanced - scrubbed them in this morning and they felt pretty good on the slab. Looking forward to getting in the weeds to see how big of a compromise they are...



Now that I had some decent rubber, time to do the fender. Bought a white fender for the '10 SMC - looks great. Then took the bandsaw and sander after my stock low fender to cut out some guards - nice to have the bolt holes where they should be and I think they look good. Was going to throw that fender away anyway. Opinions? Still need to get my cable routing sorted out, but pretty happy with the facelift.



Finally, hung the new KTM tank bag on and went for a rip. I like the way it works - not an Enduristan by any means, but functional kit.

Looks nice, but to cut down a 200 low fender makes me weep..

I hear you - just decided that it would hang on the wall for the rest of it's life anyway - wouldn't even sell it that way!

As mentioned- right side fan cowl with a little snip work- (EDIT- use the left side stock cowl). I put my tank on today and it does touch the tank but it is flimsy enough to not put too much pressure on the mount. I also have some heat reflective tape where the cowl touch's the tank just to get a little extra barrier between the cowl and tank. I had a lot of days while in Arizona this winter where my right tank would boil after long technical stretch's. Hope this will take care of that issue

Thanks.
Time to order the cowl and get to work then.

I think he meant the left side cowl. Modified the original.

Here's an other way to mount it:
