    Nice job indeed, but i don't like it much: too "heavy" in the lower part and too thin where there should be a tank.

    Indeed interesting anyhow!

    I agree, interesting but awful for the very same reasons.

    Anyway, may be they're just fooling in the garage and it's not a rideable setup? Otherwise where would they "stick" the fuel tank, and how many liters/gallons can it carry then...? and what about the whole air intake system... :huh

    Or... may be I'm short of imagination these days... :lol3

    Not sure cause i don't know german but i think that "thing" on the lower part of the bike is the fuel tank, the red bottle is the expansion for the radiator and maybe the oil tank is somewhere under the seat.

    Anyhow the KMS setup someone linked on the german forums is indeed more near to how i see the adv transformation :)

    Ok, Blur, thanks.
    Thought the pics here where the only available but they were just an intro. I now realize I should have visited the link.


    Besides it's a great handy job, to its ugly look (IMHO) now I add I don't like the setup for offroad riding either...less ground clearence, the tank IS the protection... :eek1 (I'm still short of imagination I guess).

    Yeah - I don't like the idea of the skidplate being the tank either.... for the same reasons you've brought up.

    I guess, looking at the tires, it's more of an on-road bike then heavy offroad.
