A pic from just a couple of days ago; just because.

Still running your fairing, Chris. I'll try not to smash it.

I updated the first post last night.
We are no longer limited to a run of 10 for the 2008-2011 KTM EXC and XC-W models. We have worked everything out with our new fairing supplier (Beechum1 here on ADV) and we are accepting new orders!

Very cool. I honestly think that the RMK helps make my 530 the perfect dual sport for me; worth it even if you never do a rally. Thanks for all the work on this.

Getting the wind off transforms the bike for me... 70mph on the stocker is work. 70mph on the RMK bike, even without gearing changes, is almost relaxed.

I balanced the wheels, and, with taller gearing (and the custom seat), 70mph is as comfortable than my 950 Adventure. Maybe more, actually- no buffeting.

Thanks Duke and Ned.
I have been lacking in sending the message out how well this kit works outside of racing. This kit transforms your bike into an awesome, long distance, go anywhere (yes any trail) machine.

Yup...with balanced wheels, and the kit, the 450 is awesome. It's very close to ultimate off-road adv. machine.
