After second thought . . . .I don't really need this support for fork guards . . . So I wacked it off . . . Then I went outside and cut my fender off with only enough material to help support the fork protectors.
Thanks again . . . Better to be safe . . . Which was my main intention when I ordered the 2nd brake line.
My order came in @ 6:30 PM Saturday.
The SE fender fit perfectly. I added the 2nd right brake line similar to the left . . . Using a steel hose clamp to secure it to the OEM fork guards. The center portion of the fork guard is simiar to a dirt bike fork brace . . . Should not limit mud riding much. It keeps the top of the fork guards secure . . . Which holds the brake lines in place:
Yes, I'm sure it's a 2004.
You can be 100% when you check the engine number and VIN:
04 600 xxxxx is a 2004 Adventure
05 600 xxxxx is a 2005 Adventure
Look for the number after the 'X'
X4 = 2004
X5 = 2005
You could also ask your dealer to print-out the KTM DealerNet record for your bike - it'll show production and shipment dates etc.
The stepped seat came in 2005 along with the change in height/suspension travel - you Yanks got the bikes a little late, so invented 2005.5
Hey, what do you know? You're right!
You really don't need the top portion of the stock fender.
It helps support my brake lines. I do not ride much off road:
It is no different than a fork brace . . . Should not cause mud issues etc.
I first saw this version of fender application done by another inmate XTREMJEEPN ( Cole Ford of Motul Magazine) using cutdown version of low fender as a brake line mount combined with a high fender. It's very similar to the late model OEM KTM 690 Super Moto fender set up.
For some fun facts... The early 950 race bikes had an oil cooler up front which warranted the lower fender for space, better airflow to the cooler and radiator... and the loop around low fender oil line was an OEM bolt on to what was originally raced as a single rotor front brake set up.
Glad you're having fun with it.
