    Some pictures of the guards on my 2003. Courtesy of of Loctite Liquid Nail, as it was what I had at the time. :freaky
    I'll probably go around the edges with a silicone sealant or other such weather sealant to keep cruid from getting under there.

    They're really good guards. I did have to trim the bottom rear area of the left side cover, as the fit wasn't quite right, and also the hole was off a little, so I had to trim the hole a bit on top so the air rushing through the tank hose doesn't grab the guard and rip it off. :wink:


    Overall a solid product. Consider me pleased. :clap

    Thanks for the pics and the feedback!

    Based on some other feedback I've had I've made a new set of moulds. The new mould fixes the fitment issue on the left side (the old mould had a slight twist in it) and makes the radiator vent holes a bit more consistent. Below are some pics of the 2nd set of guards I've pulled from the new moulds, they have the optional Petcock Guard attached.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    My tank guards showed up today. I was just going to ask what you guys have been using to glue them on? I want them on permanently, so what's the good stuff for doing that?

    And I'm guessing it's a good idea to seal around the edges to keep junk from between the guard and tank.

    I used Loctite Liquid Nail, which holds it on quite well, but since mine have a slight warp, I needed something else around the edges. So I used Permatex RTV Adhesive Sealant. Yes, it is a good idea to put that around the edges to keep the crap out. Overall, they look pretty slick on the bike. I've still got duct tape on mine right now to hold the RTV in place until it sets.

    A customer has asked for some custom tank guards for the Rally Tanks fitted to his KTM 640, these are the tanks, more pictures to come.

    Couldn't have been more satisfied with your tank guards, looking forward to adding the petcock guard to them and also your new LC4 case guards!

    I will post up pictures soon! Thank you again for bringing some top quality products to the market!

    Let me know if you ever do a set of swing arm guards!

    Hi All,

    Our LC4 Case Guards are finally ready! The price is 90 AUD plus shipping, the shipping is the same as the Frame Guards (see the 1st post of this thread).

    They can be stuck on in a similar way to the Tank Guards and are made to fit cases from an '03 model, maybe someone who knows a little about the LC4 differences can chime in on what models they'll fit.

    Some pics;

    Just the protection, those tanks must be the hot ticket for 640 owners, I've already had a couple of enquires about them on my website.

    Cheers,

    Watch this space, I'm looking around for a good 530 EXC and will be developing parts for that, it'll be a while of yet though.

    No worries, let me know when you're ready to go, I'm almost finished all of the back orders now so there's only about a 1 to 2 weeks wait between ordering and shipping.

    You can use epoxy but I prefer something a little more flexable like a polyurethane based adhesive/sealant (eg. sikaflex 227). They use that stuff for gluing car body pannels together now, it's pretty strong but has a lottle bit of 'give' if you knwo what I mean.
