Lookin good there Bandit
Frontiercat, what windscreen is that please? Is it effective?
Looks like KTM 690 smc/enduro Powerparts screen
where does one get that swing arm protector for the te630? will ones for a 610 transplant?
Big black mutha
Thanks for the picture of your TE630 with the black Safari, I like it very much
I just wish I could figure out how to add the graphics to it like this pic, then the black areas of the Safari tank would closely resemble the stock radiator shrouds that it replaces.
I have some ideas but the black tank is not available in the states....too bad they dont make the tanks so you could bolt the stock graphics shrouds on it.
You could make covers from fibreglass and paint.A mate has done some nice carbon fibre ones on a ktm to go over the plastic rally tanks.Worked well.I had planned to do the same but don't mind the look of the big black tank.
Works pretty well at keeping the air blast off of my chest and onto my helmet....
How is it attached?
Flattened out the windscreen in oven, test fit several times, drilled four holes in the cover, used bolts and nuts supplied with the windscreen. I did buy some plastic bushings to shim out the top of the windscreen by 3/8" with longer bolts (not in this photo though).
Most covers are bolt or clamped to the bike but the te is clipped just like the sidecovers.Hows the cover go handling the extra pressure?Wondering if it will pop off in a crash.
I've got the same windscreen on my TE, it's damn hard to take my shroud off, and i don't notice any deflection of it at any speed.
it's even strong enough that i strapped a 12v pump to it (on the riders side) - about half a kilo or so - with no hassles
The windscreen does make it a little top heavy, but I have ridden many miles at highway speeds and it hasn't come flying off and did a lot of washboard roads the other day and it didn't come loose. The rubber grommets seem to hold pretty well.
I think in a crash it would stay unless it smacked a tree or something...
Max did you take your 630 down to radelaide?
Some good riding in SA
Haven't yet, i was going to take my car and bike at the same time (saves useless miles being put on the bike) but don't have a place to store them yet. When my lease finishes at this place, i'll be moving to a place with a garage, which will happen in July
Tell you what, i'm severely missing my husky already.
I bought a little dt175 to scoot around on (adelaide hills are nice ) but the thing just doesn't compare...
Is anyone here selling a translucent Safari tank for the 630? My buddy is looking to buy one immediately if you have one for sale or know of a good deal on one. Thanks!
FrontierCat, would it be too much to ask to see a photo of the windcsreen from the front, head on? That would be very helpfull, if possible.
