    The Rade video suggests that a non-bar mount is present in the absence of the GPS bar which is included, but optional in placement. The benefit is it appears to get the GPS off of the TFT display.

    Even a decent price at $197 USD.

    Be aware of those really small pins that carry the whole thing while adding weight to oem front assembly. Few reports already with broken pins not under warranty.. added weight would be a good reason to deny any claims. The main reason is super laborous fix for small issue if done properly (weld new pin + re-paint the whole frame) - I suppose.

    Good point and I am waiting to see if the head reinforcement fix being developed by fellow inmate in this thread will be compatible. Hope so as this looks like a great wind screen without going fully Rally X.

    Yep, bought it at DirtDaze last summer. Magura was one of the few vendors there and offered a good deal on a pre-production kit. It works fine, giving smoother action along with wider engagement span and lighter pull. Nice piece and excellent service from Magura, plus it avoids the stigma of paying less money for the Camel lever conversion which I didn't know existed at the time. I would have bought the Camel instead had I known, as their stuff does the business and I don't object to paying less. But the Magura is good kit and works as advertised.

    I emailed Rade and asked if I could use my existing GPS mount with their windscreen (or whether I would need to remove it and use their bar mount). The reply from Rade was "sure, you can... it is independent."

    I pulled the trigger on the Rade windscreen today as well... hopefully it ships pronto!

    Hey @McRib ... Apologies! I couldn’t resist my inner dickheadness. :)


    What’s the coupon code again?

    Speaking of clutches, Chris Birch admitted running heavier clutch springs & Camel Adv shift arm today:

    Heavier Springs. Very interesting! I looked around for that option when I replaced mine but didn't run across a tested source and didn't want to experiment.

    Thanks for finding that! I don’t think his KTM overlords are going to be too thrilled about him sharing about the heavier clutch springs. Now, to find out where to get them.

    My bike hibernates all winter long, being in the NE US, so I can join a group buy.

    I have done that before with skid plates. Fairings should nest together well much like they did and save a ton on shipping costs. Somebody will have to pay up for all of the fairings and then distribute them to the people that wanted in. I have only done with people I already rode with, so no trust issues. Ideal if everyone lives nearby so you don’t have to ship again within the US. Anyone in the greater Atlanta area looking for one? I was holding out to try one before buying but I am also highly impatient.
