I've been running them for a couple of seasons now and they're great. You can actually see behind you and they are almost impossible to break.

You can get a small discount on the mirrors at http://www.dualsportarmory.com/index.php they are in Vendors and offer an inmate discount.. I think the code is ADVrules. I have them on my DRZ and they are great.. I could use a little more side clearance to see over my shoulders... but overall they are outstanding.. and Neduro is an inmate and Dakar finisher from last year.

There are still lots of 2011 leftovers around and nice discounts.

That's one of the beauties of these mirrors, you can customize by swapping out different length RAM arms. I used the long arms on 990 and the short arms on my 570.

Awesome job cyborg!

I'm totally going to copy that tool tube mounting position as it will solve many problems for me, thanks for posting.





I understand it's been covered here many times over, but I did manage to boil my gas on a 3000' technical climb last weekend and obviously need to do something about shielding the tank. The bike wouldn't start for 15 minutes and I could hear/feel the gas boiling... lots of pressure venting out of the tank. I ended up manually running the fan to help cool it off and it did start.
It also has me a little worried about my fuel pump, I'm going to check and see if I have the old version or not.... my bike doesn't start immediately all the time, sometimes I have to turn the key on and off to get it to start while on the trail after I either kill the motor or turn the handlebar switch off.
Hiking out from where I was late in the day would have been bad, I hate hiking in MC boots....
What's the latest greatest heat shield stuff to use? I remember reading somewhere about the precut berg specific blankets coming apart or something not good.... what's the cheapest product to help with the heat under there that's lasting for people?




Also, here's my oil analysis I sent in with 1000 miles on it, 3800 miles on the bike at the time. I'll be sending in another sample soon as I put a lot of miles on the bike last weekend so we'll see how that one goes









And a couple of photos for good measure.

Regarding fuel tank insulation:

Here's what I used: http://www.ktm-parts.com/07010521.html

The install (once you've got the tank off) is a little time consuming but it fits real good and saves a LOT of time trying to make a template yourself. I've had no issues with it tearing or coming loose. I installed it while I was adding the fan kit and cleaning out the tank when the bike was new. I've had the tank off once since. When I need to remove the tank I disconnect the right radiator and swing it and the fan fwd to make removing the fuel tank a non-issue.

Love your photos !!!

Thanks guys! Looks like the mirror thing got handled.

Here's a link for the Double-Take Mirror thread
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=571500

and my mods to make the short RAM arms work better

and Ghost Mutant's post on making the long RAM arms work better

Lost, I used the DEI Reflect-A-GOLD Film and cut my own patterns, a bit tedious and I ran out of it so didn't cover everything, but got all of what I thought were hot spots. So far it is staying in place. That along with ceramic coating the pipe I think has really cut down on heat to the fuel. I also have gold foil on the area the fan blows on the tank, to help reduce heat transfer when the fan is running. I plan to finish covering the underside with Gold foil the next time I have the tank off.



Thanks for sharing the oil lab results, and the nice pix as well.

Ran across this seat vendor by chance when web surfing something else, anyone tried them?

I think they are like Seat Concepts in reworking your stock seat, and they sell their seat rework on eBay

thanks cyborg!

By chance what size kit did you buy?.... so I know to get the next larger one if I go that route!


#010391 - 12 x 12 sheet, $20.52
#010392 - 12 x 24 sheet, $35.64
#010393 - 24 x 24 sheet, $65.88
#010394 - 1-1/2 x 15 roll, $33.75
#010395 - 1-1/2 x 30 roll, $62.09
#010396 - 2 x 15 roll, $43.19
#010397 - 2 x 30 roll, $80.99

#010393 - 24” x 24” sheet, $65.88

#010395 - 1-1/2” x 30’ roll, $62.09
#010396 - 2” x 15’ roll, $43.19
#010397 - 2” x 30’ roll, $80.99
My best guess is the #010393 - 24” x 24” sheet, $65.88 should do the whole thing if patterns carefully planned. My patterns were disposable and didn't survive the job.

That gold stuff does seem to cut heat well. I use it on my KTM990, under seat and sidepanels to cut heat on rider and passenger, and on certain areas on the fuel tanks near the exhaust header. The DEI stuff has been sticking since 2007 and 35K miles so far, all weather and temps. Used it on my 990 airbox too, has held up to engine temps for years and going strong.

The 24" x 24" is the same price as the CV4 kit just FYI that that is an option.

I see that, makes it harder to decide.


I think it was LukasM that said his CV4 blanket had shredded or something like that, as why I'm researching a little more.
Maybe he will see this and can comment.

I do understand it's been discussed, but things change.... thank you for the ongoing discussion!

Mine has shredded in the area of the fan from removing the tank, even after pushing the radiator forward. There just isn't enough room on this bike, 20lbs of crap in a 5lbs bag.

BRP rubber submount

Cyborg,

I have a 570 and have been thinking about getting the BRP rubber submount for the Scotts stabilizer but have not seen any reviews. Have you ridden it enough to say whether it significantly reduces vibration or hack and whether it is comparable to Flexx bars? I am actually thinking of using both the rubber submount and Flexx bars but would be happy to just use the submount and save a few $'s.
Thanks for any input
