    Now yer talkin'...That non-fairing tank kit should be a big hit. Very functional and clean. I prefer the enduro styling over the Dakar replica thing. I'm probably not alone.

    I couldn't agree more. Now if my friends would just increase their fuel range I could justify adding these with my airbox tank... or maybe I could turn it into a toolbox and buy these anyway!:deal

    Love the kit! I was curious, will the graphics kit have graphics that cover the tanks as well? In the past I have had problems with the graphics staying on the tank, like the Drz/Xr 400's.

    Any plastic tank will outgas causing eventual loosening of graphics. This is lessened greatly by creating very small perforations uniformly through the graphic material. 3M commercial applied adhesive is best also. Just from my experience having these things made over the years.

    Yes,the fairing kit will be the same as the previous kit,apart from the 2 fairing sides and the twin headlight and matching screen,but our tried & tested cockpit support will be retained,and we have a rally EVO2 version ready,it will be on the webshop tomorrow.I will be converting my own rally bike to EVO2 level over the Xmas break in readiness for the Tuareg Rallye in March in Tunisia.

    Baja Dad, you can select US currency at the top centre of the rally raid website. If your logged into your account it should default to that currency when your shopping.

    Mitch, do you think you guys would ever do the coloured tanks with a transparent/opaque strip up the side for quick visual check on tank levels?

    Cheers

    Ahhh I see, mis-read that...

    Would be interested to hear your thoughts on the kit when you get it. I've got them sitting in my wish list but won't be home for 3 weeks so I might hold out.

    When the graphic kits are completed in a couple of weeks,the Rally version will have a slot in the tank graphics to see the fuel level,only if you have the Natural(opaque) tanks.It will be marked in litres.

    1.Yes,the tanks are paintable,with the correct primers.
    2.We only sell complete kits,but will be selling upgrade kits,for those that have our previous design.These kits will contain just the parts they need to upgrade to EVO2 spec.
    3.Currency is available on tags at top of webshop.

    We have our initial batch of 8 EVO2 Tank & Adventure Fairing Kits, in all 3 colours, available to order through the webshop from this week.
    These have been a long time in development,but we are sure our customers will appreciate our novel design & attention to detail.
    The relevant upgrade kits are also available for those customers with the previous kits,who wish to bring them up to EVO2 spec,without having to incur the full replacement costs of a complete kit.
    It is also possible to upgrade to the new Twin headlight and EVO2 screen,but still retain the previous tanks and fairings.
    It was always our intention to design the EVO2 kit as sleekly and sharp as possible,but also make it downward compatible with our previous kit,which was not as easy as designing a new unique kit,but worth it in the long run.[​IMG]
