    I'm sure drjoe will pipe in.
    The outer ring looks like leds but isn't,it is a alloy heatsink. Did i get that right joe?
    The main 4 led light is pretty common from various evilbay and other suppliers.
    Pretty cluey fella drjoe

    Hi mate
    The round led that is replacing the high beam is one of the 3000lm led lights that are available at different places, the one I used was bought locally from a eBay seller but there also available from an advrider inmate.

    There supposed to have a good airflow to stop them overheating so I made some heat sinks to keep it cool behind the fairing.
    It doesn't have the reach of HID or a good halogen but its considerably better than the stock light.

    I gave DRJoe's a brief to change the cockpit on my 2010 690RR from a rally to an adventure cockpit. Traditionally I have had the GPS, spot tracker etc clutter along the handlebars.
    The bike has come back with a first-class carbon fibre cockpit, front & rear tank protection and akrapovic exhausts. The photos do not do it justice but its the best I can do with an iPhone 4.
    Thanks Joe wonderful job!

    Cheers mate
    The guard is from rallyraid. http://www.ktmtwins.com/rally-raid-ktm-690-enduro-smc-counter-shaft-protection

    Fits well and is super strong but the chain slider is in the wrong spot, I just left the standard chain slider on the bike and will make a linking bar from the case saver to the original slider mount bolt to take to the load off the other to mount bolts.
