    Hi Michael, In some german forum there is quite a bit of talk regarding the demand for additional fuel capacity for KTMs Freeride- basically adding some 2 liters either side of the existing tank replacing the plastics. They reckon a run of about 20+ units could be economically viable. Ever thought about that? Cheers waldecker

    It's certainly do-able, I've been thinking of a similar idea for enduro bikes, just swap out the tank shouds for small add on tanks when extra fuel is required. I'd worry about the mounting points though, those bolt holes that the shrouds mount to weren't designed to hold much weight.

    If anyone's got a Freeride I'd be willing to take a look.

    20+ units is probably minimum for a plastic tank, I could make it viable for ~5.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    Are you selling the mounting brackets for the 690 rr copies as well, and what are they made to fit?

    Hi Pete,

    At this stage it's just the fairing, no brackets or anything.

    It's a straight copy of the 690RR Dakar bike fairing.

    Finally we are able to offer a rally style (tall) fairing for the KTM 640 Adventure. See the pics below of the prototype (already sold!). Made of carbon fibre and kevlar it is surprisingly light, especially when compared to the original.

    Pricing as follows;

    Vacuum bagged Carbon / Kevlar (as in pictures below) - 340 AUD plus post

    Vacuum bagged Fibreglass / Kevlar - 255 AUD plus post

    plus post

    All,

    A note on the design of the 640 Adventure Fairing above.

    The shape/design of this fairing was developed by Pete640 in WA a few years back for his own use and he also sold a few. He has been extremely generous in allowing me to use the design of this part, partly because he's to busy to make them himself but mostly because he's a nice guy. He could have told me to bugger off but instead he let me to use his design (that would have taken many hours to develope) and even offered to help on other projects.

    Thanks Pete!

    Cheers,
    Michael

    H All,

    I have a few people interested in some DR650 case guards, if you are anywhere near Newcastle, have a DR650 and are willing to let me borrow it for a few days. I really only need the clutch and alternator covers so if you have a disassembled engine that would be fine too.

    I could make a set cheaply (at material cost) for your troubles.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    Hey guys,

    It'll be a few weeks till I can make anything, I broke my wrist at the Condo 750 rally over the weekend. Not sure on recovery time yet, I have to wait two weeks so they can do another xray to see if the scaphoid is broken.

    It looks like you are being treated for a beer drinking injury.

    Hope it heals up soon.

    Are you left or right handed?

    Haha!

    Thanks

    I'm right handed, I've also injured my left shoulder so I'm pretty much useless right now.

    How did the brackets hold up?

    Cheers mate.

    Brackets were perfect, I even tested them a few times....

    I'll be getting some better pics when I get the bike cleaned up but here's a few, Condo dust and all;

    Finally got round to making a 450/690 RFR Bashplate, it's 3mm thick and weighs just under 1.1kg;
