Doesn't look like it would be a huge job to DIY
Hi All, I have discovered that I have a hair line vertical crack in one of my fork legs, the fixed part. Results in a continuous leak. I see people have swapped out the standard forks for WP versions. My first preference is to find an original replacement. So if any one has a set of original forks just sitting around in their shed, in australia preferably, let me know as I would be interested in taking them off your hands.
Got it thanks.
Hey all, quick question about the plastics for the x-challenge - what does the rubber grommet in the lower front portion of the side fairings attach to? I recently purchased a well-used x-challenge and it came with an extra set of plastics, but the plastics that came attached (zip ties) to the bike have seen far better days. The current set is missing the lower tab that is supposed to have a rubber grommet in it, so I threw the good set on and I can't see exactly what the grommet is supposed to attach to. Fair to say there has been a good bit of modifications to the bike but any pics or advice on how this part is supposed to attach would be appreciated. The highlighted #8 is the thing I'm talking about:
Sent you a pm
It screws in to the radiatior guard at the front.
I can`t find a rear brake rotor that isn`t breaking the bank.
On Ebay there are only 124 mm "cneter hole - center hole" ones... The X-Challenge has 120 mm center hole to center hole...
I was able to order a TRW Lucas MST 394 from a French ebay seller. Try this link https://www.ebay.com/itm/Disque-de-...f-d755-4911-b52f-8cec1843cc4a&redirect=mobile
Checked Louis in Germany?
Rear disc €35 (TRW)
Front disc €75
I got EBC it was reasonable comparing to OEM. Part #MD810C IIRC
In case anyone was looking to get one my seat concepts saddle just shipped after 3 months... So ya expect to wait... Now to get a good wind screen...
Allright! I bought the one from the French guy... Thanks!
Has anyone done a LED conversion of their bike? Right now I have the Hot Rod Welding FX-R 1.1 Bi-Xenon projectors, but cables, connections, bulbs and everything else in connection with the lights died on the RTW. I have the KTM-style fairing from Hot Rod Welding as well...
Currently, as a winter project, I am rebuilding the White Ostrich after 160 000 kilometers around the world and would like to modernize the lighting to LEDs.
If anyone knows where to buy "complete" kits that are powerful and almost "plug and play" please let me know.
I'd be surprised if @Gedrog didn't have a few links saved....
Talk to Ian at Britannia composites about plug and play LED lighting.
Make sure it's road compliant in Norway if you decide to go that route @EdiA
I have a Hella module 60 main beam (non LED) and a Vision X high beam (LED).
The main beam light is bright and I like the halo daytime running light (which is always on on my bike) but the main beam is a little narrow for my taste.

I bought the Voodoo kit in the end I was only going to use the lights and Bracket mounted to a 990 Headlight frame.
issue no.1 The frame is made from very poor quality aluminum
issue no.2 The Squadron Pro is too big for the standard KTM headlight configuration
The bottom Light is still just a Halogen enclosure with an LED conversion
I dropped the whole lot accidentally asked Ian for replacement just frame and lights excluding wiring harness $465 CAD
However, if you have an existing fairing
US Supplier Consider import Tax
https://www.perfect-fairings.com/product-category/headlights/ ( Here you can also order the LED DRL or position light as they call it ) ask if they can mount it to a frame that might be more expensive Dimitris [email protected] is very helpful
I highly rate these as they are only 16watts and fully Euro compliant

With the Module 60 LED, HELLA is introducing an ultra-compact headlamp that achieves a high light output despite its size. A specially developed lens system concentrates the light and distributes it to the range of operation.

Technically yes, should be compliant, but for some odd reason, Norway doesn't have any periodic inspection of motorcycles.
Both HID (Xenon) and LED low beams (above 5000lux or something) are illegal unless they have automatic levelling anyhow.
AFAIK DRL is legal only if it has automatic dimming at night/ dark (tunnels etc).
I ave a set of DRLs instead of parking light on their own button which has been fine.
I think since the EU introduced DRLs the cops here have become a lot more lax when it comes to lighting violations because there are now so many varieties of DRL lights it's almost impossible to know at a glance wtf kinda lights they are.
I technically don't have a DRL as it's always on and so is the headlight.
But here in Germany we do have inspection every 2 years and so far people are more concerned that I am seen in trafic and not a word about it has ever been said.
The last inspector said (when we presented out dirty bikes as they never get washed) : Well lookie here! Bikes that are used instead of polished !
It’s been a bit! I hope folks are still finding my coolant change rain-dance instructional helpful!
I’m looking for a picture of a G650x with a G450x or HP2… or an X-Challenfe with a X-Country, or X-Moro.
I know I’ve seen a couple on ADV rider of the three platform together. I know I met a guy who had all three a few years ago.
I’m writing an article for the site about the X-series and and inmate’s pictures would be a helpful demonstrative aid!
Thanks guys! Ride safe
