Question on those links

Do you know what the clamps are that are used to mount the frame for the lights to the front suspension?

Cheers,

Adrian

Interesting bike Old Codger

Sounds like a good score there mate. I just bought a Spal fan and would be curious how yours is mounted? What's the cush wheel, off a 640 perhaps? What Buell lights are you going to use?

Battery life

Sidetrack, I heard the battery life wasn't very good on this model, do you know how long you can listen before you need to recharge it?

At least the sand should be well wetted and damped down. Shades of Neale Junction all over again..........:D

Ballards do a cleanable alloy filter, but you would need to check whether it will fit the KTM fuel pipe.

comfort grip or dipped grip

One review I saw recommended the comfort grip rather than the simple dipped grip. They look a bit more bulky though for a tool roll, anyone tried both?

Wild guess, but

It's not the screw that holds the pivot for the float in place is it?
