    oooh errr... I am liking this. Was close to pulling the trigger on one like this myself a few months ago. Now I get the fun of the build without the risk :1drink :thumb :lurk :lurk

    Mudguts, are you going to stick with the high fender, or go the full rally look? (Lukas, your two RR pics have one of each fender)

    If you get the low guard and fab your own brackets, you can place it a bit higher than on the LC8. Just watch for clearance to the lower triple at full compression.

    If you are going with the MecaSystem brackets, check if they fit the 990 fender which has a bit more clearance than the 950 one. AFAIK the mounting points are slightly different though. You can even get it in white from KTM....

    In Australia it's illegal to add ethanol to fuel unless they clearly label it as such. Some fuel stations sell 91RON unleaded with 10% ethanol, but most don't.

    I usually run 98RON unleaded in my KTM.

    I have to clean the throttle body about every 3000 miles on my 690 and 990 because of ethanol. It really gums it up. I've started using an enzyme treatment... Not sure how well it will work.
