Looking good BK. Now I don't need to worry about it!
The new part is slightly shorter in length (so less of a "cantilever" effect) than the original part, but the the weak link (in my opinion) is that they did not run the "L" shape far enough forward to provide a secondary means of support in the area where my bracket broke.
I have spoken (briefly) to someone else about possibly redesigning this part to make it stronger. We'll see what, if anything, can come of that.
Just for the record, I do ride my 990 off road a lot and like to take the bumps fast, so a sturdy part is essential for me. And no, Touratech did not give me the replacement part for free, but they sent me an entire new assembly for about half-price so that was fair.
I installed the new 4 position heater controller & grips.
You have to hold the switch for 3 straight seconds to turn it them on or off.
I didn't use any heatshrink on the left grip, just hairspray- same for the throttle tube.
For those that are going to install their own KTM kit, the "ACC 2" connectors are located behind the headlight. You have to remove the left upper cover (where the left turn signal is located) in order to access the connectors.
This is a great kit. It includes everything you will need.
Not completely finished but In brought her in her new house
I now have 10 days to make it ready for MOAB !
Mounted and ready to GO!!!
Angle of cans slightly greater than rack to facilitate getting more fuel into cans when filling up while attached to bike.
Now I can actually see how far she goes before I run out of fuel!
I went tubliss.
Remus Roxx 2 > 1 Exhaust, looks and sounds great.
Mounted up a set of Pivot Pegs I had sitting around from my 530.
I've been using the bracket for the last 1 year - mostly offroad - without any problems.. Last year a StreetPilot III was mounted to it, this year it's a 276c.. Neither them are lightweight - but the bracket seems to hold on well:)
Left it in the garage....
And rode my other toy to work
I tested my new Oberon clutch slave today. Not much of a differrence, it feels like the Oberon goes slightly lighter than the stock unit, but its not much of a difference imho
My rear brake lever was bent and was chewing through the carbon kevlar over the clutch cover. Finally, I bought a new lever and decided to replace the cover as well - in style, of course
what brake-tip is this ???
Hammerhead... CJ sells 'em. I just got my orange one last week...
Hmmmm........might need one of those......
I just painted my stock one for the moment....
Cole, our lower halves are gonna look similar... CJ is in the process of cranking out an orange set of peg extenders for me.
Oh, and that orange engine paint looks handy to have around
Added HDB top clamp, handguards, and mirrors. This is a great upgrade to the flimsy stock handguards. Quality is top notch!
I ordered the 90x38/40 top clamp which match to stock KTM handlebar bolt pattern. I didn't realize the ROX Raisers are wider than the stock clamps. Ended up using the HDB top clamp to clamp the ROX, and the ROX to clamp the handlebars.
To fit the HDB top clamp on top of the ROX, I would have to get a 106x38/40 HDB bolt pattern.
With the large footpeg extensions I always found the little stock tip too hard to find. I used to have one from Adventurer's Workshop but it was just bent metal like the original and was also bent out of shape. Don't think this one is going to deform too easily!
hum no, you can fit the 90-38/40 as well. you just need to take 1-2 mm off the width the lower clamps, which would bring the ROX inwards and bam... you're in business. Takes 10 min with a dremel. Looks good and you get your HDB clamp on top.
I just pulled the headlight to get to mine. Easier to me than pulling the entire cheek.
Good info. glad that I read this before I bought a new top plate.
It may just be the way I am looking at this, but it would appear that the HDB part may be keeping you from rotating those Rox Risers any further forward, is that the case?
When I installed my Rox Risers I went with this brand because I wanted to keep the bar mount in vertical alignment with the stock mount position (in terms of the reach), rather than having the bars pulled back and closer to me. To do so, I then adjusted the risers slightly forward. This may not be possible with that top clamp part. Interesting.
