Strange...I think they sell worldwide.
I will ask them
How are these mudflaps holding up & how clean does the shock stay?
The Twalcom version looks quite a bit narrower than the 640 DIY version.
Since i have put on a longer chain to move the rear wheel further back i have no issues with tyre rub on the mudflap. And the shock stays very clean. And no mud clogs yet.
I was looking at this and wondered if it was possible to bond a piece of rubber on the back of the twalcom one to add protection.
Could you tell us more about the tire rubbing issue?
Well its simple. If you have the tire to far forward you will rub the mudguard and it wont last as long.
This happens with stock gearing and chain length? At what point in the suspension stroke? Rubs a little or hammers it?
Did we ever figure out if twalcom ships to the US?
How do you like the width of the Twalcom flap? Does it rub on the swingarm or shock?
Here is my $30 DIY version:
Used a small piece of Kydex and the OEM hugger mounting points to mount the anti-rubbing protection.
Made a simple metal bracket to mount the KTM 640 Adv mud flap:
I sandwiched it between the fender and the metal cross bar:
Yea, yea. I know I need to source a second fender washer for the flap!
I'm getting pretty decent clearance out of it:
What’s the black cover you have on the shock there? Doesn’t look like a sock..
thats oem on the 790’s.
may, interesting. I wonder it it will fit my 790 Rally
Will not fit the rally ,there is no screw hole on the pro shock for it to fit to
Thanks, I looked at the KTM schematic and thought that would be the case. Although I wondered if modifying it might work too.
Well, that was a failure!
Looks like i focused on lower end clearance and didnt properly calculate upper clearance.
LOL ..... A++++ for effort
That is not a failure, it was a test, a lesson you learned from.
120 link chain - problem solved.
Running a 15T front so I did gain a bit of clearance.
