    runpastthefence,
    Two pages back Screenshaw400 was looking for the same part. I suggested trying to source one from SafariTanks. Is this tank from him? I wonder if he ever got hold of SafaiTanks to get one.
    Regards....just jeff

    Negative, it seems we're in the same boat but with two separate tanks. I wasn't aware that Safari makes a similar part, but it makes sense with their rear tank. I've seen where a couple of guys just drill and tap the bottom of the main tank, but I'd rather not introduce another hole into the bottom of my main tank. I'll reach out to Safari and see what comes up.

    Found this

    I sent Safari an email inquiry about it. We'll see what comes back.

    I also have a spare fuel pump base that I might attempt to modify. I'll post what I come up with.

    Looks like the same adapter block that came w/ my Safari front tank.

    SRG,
    The first adapter show by runpasthefence or the one I showed for the KTM690?

    I know that Safari uses the same fuel block for the front and rear fuel tanks for our bikes. And, as far as I can tell, the 690 uses the same fuel pump base as the 'Bergs. So, one would think the 690 pump adapter would also work. I wonder why they have two separate designs for the same fuel pump.

    edit to answer my own question: I'm sure it's because of exhaust routing. However, the 690 base adapter design is pretty simple, and might be easily replicated.
    SafariUSA emailed me back and said they're checking with SafariAustralia to see if they have any spares.

    JJ - my adapter (for the Safari front tank) looks just like the one runpasthefence posted a pic of.

    Installing it was not difficult.

    OK OK OK...shameless begging here for a cush hub rear wheel. The cost for new is killing me, but I really need one for my DS riding on the 570. Already stripped my spline at 4500miles (about 8000kms), and don't want to repeat. Rad hub, Hahn hub, old LC4 KTM hub wheels...i won't be picky if you can offer me one so long as its a straight and true rim.

    While I'm at it, are most of use still dealing with the useless OEM KTM kickstand? Or did you go to pro billet? They tried to tell me their stand only fits 2009/2010 fe570, haha. I kept telling them it's the same design. TIA! :beer

    Rad is out of business. I got a Woody wheel built with Rad cush hub 4 years ago still going like a champ. splines are good and I got 11,000 miles on her. Well worth it to buy a cush hub wheel!
    Buy whatever you can find but Woodys can figure out how to build you a custom wheel.

    Thanks Indy...in a twist i happened to find a VERY affordable 2nd hand excel rim with 12g SS heavy duty spokes and a Talon cush hub with new rubbers. Only problem is I've read a pretty terrible report on the Talon cush hub wearing prematurely on some bigger 950/990 ktms. So i'll get a good pic of the hub internals and maybe give it a spin? the difference is about 700usd for a woodys and 300usd for this used wheel with about 2000miles on it.

    Not that this helps right now but I'm in the process of building my own cush rear wheel.... I have a"talon" replica cush hub in hand and am waiting on my rim and spokes to arrive.... Once complete I should have around $550 US dollars invested in it.... Quite a bit cheaper than any other "new" one I've seen.... I'm currently using a 640 cush rear when I do a lot of road... It work just fine but is quite heavy and my new one should be a few pounds lighter.....

    Haan makes a very nice aftermarket cush hub to fit our bikes. Pro Circuit Products is the US distributor.

    I've replaced the kickstand on all of my 'Bergs with the one from Pro Moto Billet.
