    Chris nailed it!

    The only other thing I will add in the future is the Gatos Bros pinchy Clamp:

    Eliminates the shear factor from the end bolt.

    Thanks guys :)

    That should solve both problems I have with my current handguards by fixing them in place and giving the brake line that little bit of extra space :thumb

    Looks good. Tell me more about that voltmeter. Where is it from and how does it like being in the weather? It looks useful but not so water resistant. I would like to have some sort of voltmeter.

    I have been considering replacing my stock computer on my KTM 500 EXC with something else and would like to upgrade with a tach, voltmeter, and coolant temp along with the standard speedo / adjustable odometer. Any ideas?

    John is an inmate here (sanjoh). I have not used the voltmeter, but have used the lights with great results so far.

    Trailtech voyager has the battery voltmeter and all the other things you are aksing, +gps support so it makes a clean setup as well.

    Hi

    Does anyone have the dimensions of the KTM 690/450 Rally-Bracket holder at the frame?
    Would be nice if someone could post it.
    I search the dimensions for A,B,C and D.

    Sorry the picture is a bit small.

    Thanks
    Jens

    Thanks for the info on the meter.

    I am not interested in the GPS part of the Voyager. Is there another gauge cluster available? Another function I would like to get in my gauge is an enduro computer.

    I would have said vector, but apparently they don't make it anymore, though it's available from other vendors still.

    It's been a while since I've been on the forums. I always admire the craftsmanship of all of you guys. You all are very talented bunch. Respect!!

    My latest project just happens to be a Christini Rally bike I am building for a gent in Colorado. It has been fun and has had its challenges. If you are interested you can follow my progress on my Freedom Rally Racing Facebook page. I will do what I can to bring it here as well.

    nice bike,

    but I would replace that "wind screen" for something similar in persplex, (see through) to give it a more modern appearance..
    but thats just me...
    It looks dated, IMO.. :shog

    He is going to be running a multiple chain-driven front-wheel-drive system... on a rally bike...

    I think a clear screen is going to be the least of his worries ;o)

    The Christini Dakar bike sounds really cool. I'm looking forward to seeing how it does. I think Craig at CJ designs has had good luck with his version.

    On another note......I have a Stryker on my KTM 450 XC (which is for sale) and I really like the Stryker. I now have a '13 300 XCW and while the KTM computer is OK, I still like the Stryker better.

    Has anyone ever fabbed up their own brackets using stainless steel? My bracket setup will be small with small very light lights so I think the entire stainless portion of the contraption should be under 2lbs. I was planning on tig welding aluminum but as I do t have a tig right now it will be slightly logistically a pita to borrow a friends machine. And at under 2lbs the weight difference using mig and stainless for an 11 gage stainless (approx 1/8th" or approx 3mm) versus aluminum will be negligable. If stainless, it will also look good and never rust and be easier to service.

    Has anyone ever done anything like this?




    Also, on a seperate note I have been looking at plans similar to hdb's fairing, which is basically a small windshield, but out of plexiglass. I have been noticing Dakar bike fairings getting smaller and smaller and seemingly lighter and lighter.

    Here is the 2015 yamaha wr405 that just came out redesigned for 2015. Notice the fairing doesn't even connect to the tank. It still stays rigid (frame mounted, not steering mounted) but is interesting nevertheless.
