This will also be suitable for an SE with a Tourtech skid plate.

If enough interest I will go ahead and have a batch made up, SE and Adv, but Iím not doing this as a business prospect, just offering to help out fellow inmates, Iíve paid for mine. It was heat painted today so hopefully will install tomorrow and Iíll take some more picks.
I'm interested in a bracket to fit my 990 ADV, when you have them ready, pm me or something ;)

I'm in...

If it will fit with the BDCW skid plate (which I'm sure it will) I'll have one.

Glad to see someone in the UK can finally supply this vital piece of kit.

Cheers

Tim

That lower bolt is where the sump guard bolt goes on the Adv, thats why the Blackdog has no mount there...



so when will you have the Adv version ready please?

You could do that, an added bad design is the alignment. I can only assume KTM didnít use shouldered bolts to gain more tolerance. The third bolt goes through the frame, case and frame so kind of sandwiching the fragile case material. Iíd rather bend the side stand plate or break the stand itself rather than cause any damage to the case. Thatís a major rebuild or weld job.

I should find out this week.

Just to keep everyone in the loop, the SE plate is being machined up now. Then off to the miller to be countersunk and painted, so a total of three companies just to make this side stand relocater. There was a minimum order so that will give only a few plates to start with, hopefully should start producing the Adv plates next week.

Any news?
I am interested in the Adv version, but happy to take an SE version and machine out the sumpguard area.

I was putting the finishing touches to the Adv relocater today along with inmate ACP, nice guy. I should have the first batch of SE plates completed this week, there was a misunderstanding with the engineering company, I asked for a test piece first out of 1mm steel to match, I received a 6mm plate 7 days later, so I am waiting for the first order and then to be milled.

I’m very happy with the Adv design; it’s been designed to accommodate the standard Adv and G-IT sump guard, I see no reason why it wouldn’t match with others sump guards. Many thanks to ACP for his time, a top bloke and for the tea, coffee and use of his Adv S making this all possible, as I said before, I only originally intended to make some for the SE, but due to the interest and PM’s I’ve received....

Hopefully, as things are progressing at a faster pace now, I will be able to get a plate to you this week or next. I’m keen to get as much feedback as possible.

It will be 6mm steel, not 8mm, I’ve steered away from stainless or high tensile, hopefully this will give a point of give with a big off, preventing, limiting damage elsewhere.

I bent my SE’s standard side stand pivot plate like a banana in a crash; luckily the case was fine, if it had been made of tensile steel, I’m not sure I would have been as lucky. The main bolt going through the case, I’m still undecided whether to use an 8.8 grade bolt or 10.9. 8.8 would have a better chance of failure in a crash, what do you think?

Still too close to the case for my liking. I went aft of the foot peg, also made it adjustable.

the BD one will not fit as the 03 frame is different
2nd that I'm in surrey. Would not a piece of heavy duty rubber mounted behind the plate act as shock absorber if any bending took place?

That’s a good idea, will need testing. Personally I think there is enough flex in the side stand its self, it’s going to take some real abuse to bend this relocater. The prototype was fitted with ACP's G-IT Sump guard.
