    Only our Rallye Graphics,the Adventure Graphics will be more in-line with the OEM styling.

    We have been getting the next batch of 15 sets of EVO2 tanks ready,in orange,black & white.
    Next job is to send them for flourination,this is a special chemical process that ensures the tanks are vapour resistant.
    The first batch of 30 tank kits have nearly all gone,so we hope to have these available by mid-february.[​IMG]

    Hi,
    A few pages back someone asked if you have a plexiglass part for the headlight. You answered no, but do you plan to have that in the future ? Would that be difficult to have the entire headlight fairing in a transparent material instead of ABS ? Then we could cover the part that we do not want to have transparent with a sticker kit ?
    As you have the mold, is that much different to produce the part in ABS or in another transparent material ?
    Thanks for the info...
    By the way, this Evo2 kit is superb !!!

    It was a Beanie's race bike, but I think he has an older version headlight set-up on his. I might also be wrong...

    Hi John

    What primer should I use on the tank and fairing? Any known pitfalls when spray painting these units?

    John,

    Any update on when this would be up for sale ? How were you able to get the extra 25mm of travel with this shock without hitting the rear master cylinder. I have 300m close chambered forks on the front and have been using your 95Nm spring on the rear to make up for the ride height. Would love to get this shock if it can get full 300mm travel.

    We have the shock fitted & are visiting Tractive HQ in Nederlands next week to arrange slight changes to production version,and have the pre-load adjuster fitted before leaving for Tuareg Rallye in Tunisia in 2 weeks.
    We have maximum 300mm rear wheel travel,and can also supply in 275 & 250mm stroke for those that want it.

    Here are a few picks from last week.I did install the IMS Rally pegs,45t super sprocket and the Billet chain gaurd.
    I am still waiting on my Custom Seat Concepts Tall seat,KTM Low Rally fender along with my GPR Staplizer to show up.
    I hope to install my custom Rally Low pipe, BRP chain block a set of twin chamber (300mm travel) WP forks and the reworked rear shock by this weekend.

    Looks sweet in black. Now you just need an LED tail light.

    My black tanks have a sort of vinyl sticker cover over it to match the fairings. Did you have it and peeled it or did your tanks come in the bare plastic?

    :lurk

    The bike looks mean ! :clap ... The new Orange is Black :D The shape of the tank is really pretty. It reminds me some of the RC8 tank corners if you know what I mean. Really nice.
    This is the exhaust pipe we are talking about ! Something is missing at the front.... ehm... Fender? :D High or low mount?
    And there is the pillion peg support. Does it serve something I cannot figure ?

    Mark, any comments on the handlebars ? :ear

    My tanks came bare. I think they were the first Black tanks shipped.
    That is ok!!!
    I have custom Graphics to be installed next week.

    I have been working on a Rally Low pipe that will replace the stock pipe that is on the bike in this picture.
    The Pillion peg support has been cut and will help support the low rally mid pipe. I will be using a Factory KTM
    660 stainless Rear can.At that time I will finish my custom Bash plate ,It will have a tool box on the right side
    and come up to protect the low pipe header on the left side.
    I will be using a 2011 KTM 990 LOW front fender ( still waiting for a Factory 660 low fender) along with a pair
    of 2012 WP USD Twin chamber forks with 300mm of travel and a Re-worked rear shock .
    The bars are from Fasst company they are called FLEX Bars ( very nice for these old shoulers)
    I also use BRP rally gaurd mounts with Acerbis Gaurds with AME grips.
