Lower protection

Sorry for the tardy response--haven't visited for a while--work is progressing slowly on the tank protectors --- the weather has been too cold for glass work etc.

I do a bit of work for a local KTM dealer and will have a good look at fork leg lowers to see what's common. The 640 Adv and the 950 (and even the 990) have the same lowers. I note that the new 990 front fender (mudguard to me ) actually now uses the side bolt hole (previously just the front two--the fender used to vibrate)--This makes me think that the lower has a more traditional use where the bottom protectors typically use all 3 bolt holes--in other words the 640, 950/990 castings are not unique and there are probably stock protectors that fit.

Regards, CB
