KTM 690 Rally kits-Who makes the best kit?

Ive found on one manufacturer of the fairings but not the oversize tanks (front and rear) or a complete kit.

Any ideas who makes them for us non professionals :) ?

There are several options out there and though Mecasystems does make a setup they are not necesarily the best.

One option is to run the safari tank from Aqualine along with a fairing that is available. There is a company in the UK called rally-raid who makes a pair of plastic front tanks as well. Check out rally management services for some pictures and options.

Good information on those links, thanks.
Do you think the Mecasystems fairing will retro fit to the Safari tank?
Could be a cheap option.

The words 'Cheap option' and 'Mecasystems' don't belong in the same paragraph!

Aside from the standard mods I have done I am doing the following setup for a rally kit:

Safari tank
Alberto fairing...uncut for headlights so I can run the dual round units
Meca system tower kit.


The whole setup runs about $3000 but I won't need all of the pieces. I also have about $800 in suspension work, and lots of little upgrades and mods.

here is my setup now without any nav brackets or fairing. This setup is well balanced and rides nicely. With a simple bracket for the roadbook and odos this would work well sans fairing:
