You're right. The 690 rally thread looks exactly the same except they all paid 40k + for their's. I guess that makes them almost 3 times the assholes we are [emoji3]

Awesome,
Thanks for the link Rev.
So by the look of it, this bike is more or less the Yamaha WR 450 Adventure that so many people have been waiting for.

It might not be as pretty as a KTM 450...

You should go with the 2200W resistors anyway. The wire wound ones look like machine gun barrels. One either side of the headlight up front is gonna look awesome :D

BRP make mounts for the flex bars which add an additional pivot point. I'm pretty sure you could get it to work with HDB guards
