Very slick installation - the case does look great on that little bike. I assume some padding goes over the exposed hardware...?

The clamps are referred to in the aviation industry as Adel clamps - the aluminum ones are pretty durable, but have been known to fatigue through vibration and then crack. If they are steel you have no worries - but inspect them routinely, or after a fall, if they are alloy.

There is a similar thread about the new 250 going on at KTM Talk - the owner has installed lowering links and is looking for more modification possibilities. Note that you have to be logged in there to read any posts.
