The nasty low guard, lock up my front wheel will ya :evil.
This was the hardest part of the whole process as a replacement low guard is about $400AUD :cry. It took me about 2 hours to decide to hack this baby up. Funny thing was the more beer I drank the easier the decision became I also became funnier, better looking, stronger, and a better dancer, go figure.

:eek1

If you didn't care about the low guard, why not sell it on Ebay and use fork leg protectors off the 525 (or something) instead ?

The price you got for the guard should have more then covered the cost of the "conversion".

If you need a low guard again, I can sell you mine, $350, pristine :D

BSTARD 12-11-2005 02:06 PM

Yes, I put an end to it's reign of terror :evil

The drink is a product of my wife's new industrial strength juicer and her fondness for alcohol. 1 nip Vodka, 1/2 nip Cointreau, pineapple, orange, apple, watermelon, lime and strawberries. Gets ya pissed and cleans out ya insides at the same time, it's all good. My favorite cocktail is the Long Island Iced Tea, so much alcohol and yet it still tastes like iced tea, amazing.

Parts List in ozzie dollars
 
Stuff ya need.

From ya deala.
Front Fender, SuperMoto. KTM part #5030801020030 $68.18 (this one in black would be nice)
2x Spacer Bushing (pic 6). KTM part #50208020000 $6.15ea
1 x Brake Line Guide (pic 1). KTM part #59008019000 $8.40
1x 950 Adventure Front brake line. Goodridge part #HOSBKTM9501F(check with ya deala) $122.70

Other Stuff.
I got all of this in the same place, a boating shop(BCF). Think ya may have trouble getting this from a hardware shop?

Brake-line holders(pic 8)
2x 5mm x 25mm 316 S/S Hex Head bolts(pic 8, cut down to approx 12mm). pkt of 10 approx $8.00
2x High Tensile Self Locking Nuts(Nyloc's) 5mm x 0.8 pkt of 10 $4.00
4x 4mm S/S washers. pkt of 30 approx $5.00
2x Cable Clamp 10mm. pkt of 25 $3.25
Cut up an old inner tube the same thickness as the cable clamp and use as spacers.

Fork Guard Braces.
2x 304 S/S Rivets 3/16 dia x 3/8 long (I cut these down to 8mm) pkt of 6 $6.50
2x Swage Eye Term G316 2.5mm x 3/32" (63mm long, dia 6.3mm) $3.50ea
NOTE: I got 3 of the above as true to form I fucked one up.
These need quite a bit of modification to fit, I have pic's if required.

Other stuff.
1x 1/2" Wiring Grommet(pic 5, I cut a section out to allow fitment around brake-line) pkt of 2 $3.25
The brake line guide(pic 4) and low brake line holder (pic 5) where made from some plastic coated mild steel (approx 3mm) I had in my shed of many bits and pieces, the bolt was from the back of the low guard.
4x 6mm x 20mm bolts to secure the fender. $0.80ea. The originals where too short and where used along with the spacer bushings to hold the fork protector braces(pic 6).

I put a lot of thought into this and ideally I would have liked to have had the fork protectors made out of carbon(bling, bling, bling). I now essentially have the reverse moulds for this to happen. With some modification to the lower sections of the guards(where the braces are) and the addition of a right hand brake holder this could become a reality, or more likely remain a dream. Another plus of using the original guard is ya don't have to piss around making a brake-line/speedo holder for the left hand side. I have seen the brake-lines held on with cable ties which looks crap and will eventually snap(hope they used UV stabalized ties?). I have yet to see a decent setup for this mod (I'm sure theres some out there I just haven't seen one yet) using either RM 250 or SX fork guards and believe using the original guard protectors looks a shit load better.

Cheers.

Those orange fork protectors made me think of knee high socks... then the obligatory patent leather shoes appeared instead of the tire... perhaps you could paint the tank/fairing in a Scottish tartan plaid? :tb

oh yeah, good job bstard!
