which fender and fork covers did you go with? Looks great.
Here’s what I used. KTM supermoto fender (7730821000028), you need to get 4 spacers for this (54808020000) and Acerbis fork guards for a KTM 85 SX (2253090002).
Got out yesterday for the first ride

i'm looking at the Atlas throttle lock as well. interested in your experience w it.
Are you going to Ohlins forks or inserts?
Thanks for selecting our pegs for your bike. We really appreciate your business and trust!
-Black Dog Cycle Works
I’m going with the cartridges
Absolutely! I saw some really good reviews, bought them after watching Back Country Adventure Motorsport video
Thanks for the help!
What did the butt dyno tell you Greg
well...this is with the baffle in. It feels quicker. That said, I don't really have reference, as I was off the AT since October.
Seems to really wake up at 4k rpm
it was an entertaining 55km ride. I found myself hauling ass way too often, and leaving the light, lighting up the rear in 2nd gear (it was a bit greasy)
I don’t have “forks” so can’t check it out but has anyone tried attaching the standard fender to the upper forks ?
It does not give you any more max power but it should feel much sharper than the stock PCV map, and the Dyno chart shows that its about 15% more TQ in that 2k to 5k RPM range, 4th gear is good to run in deep sand from 80kmh up, on hard surfaces 4th is good upto about 200kmh now (ignore those flashing dash lights they reset at power up). I dont like that white stuff you have in your photos, thats just not right on two wheels.
Do you have a set course you measured the original on, I have a 1km straight I have a very old Gtech Pro that I use but a cell phone with an app will work just as well, time over distance x weight will give the power difference if you dont put it up on the Dyno.
I think you would be the test virgin on that one.
Ahh.....can someone splain dis to me?
I think its a step in the very right direction. I kept the baffle in but will remove it for the next run. As far as measurment...I was grinning like an idiot the entire ride, so great indicator there!
Typically ride the same stretch when 1st out for the season, as it's still greasy, and slick in some spots.
March has the max amount of snow fall for the year around here, so glad I got out. A nice squall came in a few hours after...2 inches on the ground
snow? two wheels? yes please. Have to keep the winter madness at bay somehow.
Well, if you look closely at the pic, you will see I have a leading link front suspension (look even closer and you will see a SideCar attached) and have mounted the original fender up higher. I can’t see a reason why you guys with forks can’t mount the original off the upper tubes instead of the lower. Easy to make a clamp mount and maintains factory appearance somewhat......
well good day you AT fans. I thought I would share some joy today, being cooped up in isolation now going on my 3rd week, I am getting bored and needed a spritzer of joy, hope and of the future. So here a pic of, I introduce to you, the beauty and the beast (you pick which is which!). We still have snow, so all I can do is drool, the AT is broken in with 5k miles, while the Beemer is still new with diapers on. What a set of two beautiful bikes!
What is the largest after-market screen for an AT?
