    Matt just ridden the apc rally with my new bashplate on the 640a, it didn't miss a beat matt and carried a heap of gear that I was relieved to have with me. Even survived a head on with an xtrail on the last day with only minor scuffing.
    Cheers mate, very happy.

    Went for a little ride out the back of Nowra to test my new Tank bag and ended up testing out the bash plate in a head on crash with a KTM 300.
    I was on my way out of a left hand bend and about to head into the right hander that had a log across most of the track on Slab Hill Rd and as I started to head in I see a bike jumping off the erosion mound coming down the hill into the bend . He hit the brakes and locks it all up and I thinking good hes going to low side it into the sand for a nice soft landing but no he gets it all together and goes towords my right but then see the log and tries to cut across in front of me . By this time Im just about stopped on the out side of the bend when he slams straight into the side of me.
    Just be for inpact I let go of the right bar and drop the sholder into him as he hit me The front wheel hit the side of the bash plate and his foot peg also slamed into the bash plate bending it in.The bash plate save my foot from the foot peg inpact.The hit was that hard that my bike was turned past 90 degrees and he went flying off my sholder which I dont think he was to happy about.
    Damage to the bike was a dented bash plate and a broken mirror me a sore shoulder and some tender ribs.

    You can see where the front tyre hit and the peg.

    I think it may of saved me from a lot more damage and pain :clap

    That rear tank looks awesome! :clap Except that my exhaust is on the rhs :cry

    Still, well done! I may have to pick up one of those skid plates for some much needed protection. How well does it cover the petcock?

    Thank for that. If your sub frame is the same as the 05 I can make one to fit the LHS if your keen.

    As for the bash plate they fit the 02 so that all good and the protection is second to none :D

    I think you would be unlucky to hit the petcock.

    I thought I would also post in this forum as there are probably more of them in use in OZ than most other places...........

    I just installed a rally skidplate from KTMatt on my KTM 640..........
    ..........http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ghlight=ktmatt

    What a well made piece of gear.

    My question is.........what do you guys put in the side pods?? The only concern I have is that I could be in wet/muddy conditions, so the stuff in the pods might get wet???

    Thanks

    A little bit of custom tank and bash plate work of the mighty TransAlp.

    The Bash plate is made out of 5mm 5083 and the tanks 3mm 5005 Alloy with as many bends as possible to eliminate as much welding as possible.
    I think the RHS ended up with 11L and the RHS about 10L.
    The tanks where made to fit in with the new custom twin pipes and the bash plate protects the pipe that crosses over under the bike.
