The relevant upgrade kits are also available for those customers with the previous kits,who wish to bring them up to EVO2 spec,without having to incur the full replacement costs of a complete kit.
It is also possible to upgrade to the new Twin headlight and EVO2 screen,but still retain the previous tanks and fairings.
It was always our intention to design the EVO2 kit as sleekly and sharp as possible,but also make it downward compatible with our previous kit,which was not as easy as designing a new unique kit,but worth it in the long run.
Any 6' + guys out there with this kit?
I'm 6'2" and wondering if the fearings actualy create good wind protection without major wind noise, and (more importantly) wind buffetting, at highway speeds.

What is the difference from adventure fairing kit and rally fairing kit?

So to be running I need one of above mentioned kits and the EVO2 tank kit, so price range of 2200 GBP or approx. 3500 USD in total? And then add shipping on top.

Jeez, expensive to do the rally thing...

The Adventure & Rally Kit are very similar,apart from the fact the Adventure Kit does not have the extra stiffening plates,T Post,8-way fuse holder,toolbox,roadbook plate and tie-rods.
The extra cost is for those parts to make it race-ready for a rally,and they have been tested over the last 3 years in most international events by many riders,with very few problems,we get a lot of feedback from riders,and any recurring problems with the design are changed to improve the product.
As the saying goes.....racing improves the breed.
Yes,the rally kit is dearer than the Adventure Kit,but when you say expensive,what other rally kit are you comparing it to?

Because the 6mm stainless steel plate that holds the top clamp around the headstock moves the ignition lock back 6mm,so the steering lock pin cannot reach the hole in the steering stem.

This is valid only for the fairing correct?
If you install just the tanks with the little cover and no fairing then the steering lock still works, correct?

With the 2012 Scotts damper and mount, it won't work anyway.

ktmmitch,

Do you have a wide pic of a '12 with just the tanks & fairing installed (in white or natural)? Also, can I get a copy of the installation instructions to peruse?

Great work & thanks.

Dear Mr RR

Will there be a January sale on Evo1 Kits??

Cheers

Harty

PS Failing that, will you be selling off the 2nd hand Evo1 kits from the 690 owners upgrading to the Evo2 kit

I doubt,because we are running down the EVO1 kits.
Also,anyone that buys an EVO2 upgrade tank kit uses about 50% of the EVO1 kit,so there will not be many parts to re-sell,and definitely not enough to make a full kit.

Not to hijack, but I have a Scotts kit on my '12 690R and my steering lock works fine. Obviously we have different mounting kits.
