John,

Any update on when this would be up for sale ? How were you able to get the extra 25mm of travel with this shock without hitting the rear master cylinder. I have 300m close chambered forks on the front and have been using your 95Nm spring on the rear to make up for the ride height. Would love to get this shock if it can get full 300mm travel.

We have the shock fitted & are visiting Tractive HQ in Nederlands next week to arrange slight changes to production version,and have the pre-load adjuster fitted before leaving for Tuareg Rallye in Tunisia in 2 weeks.
We have maximum 300mm rear wheel travel,and can also supply in 275 & 250mm stroke for those that want it.

Here are a few picks from last week.I did install the IMS Rally pegs,45t super sprocket and the Billet chain gaurd.
I am still waiting on my Custom Seat Concepts Tall seat,KTM Low Rally fender along with my GPR Staplizer to show up.
I hope to install my custom Rally Low pipe, BRP chain block a set of twin chamber (300mm travel) WP forks and the reworked rear shock by this weekend.

Looks sweet in black. Now you just need an LED tail light.

My black tanks have a sort of vinyl sticker cover over it to match the fairings. Did you have it and peeled it or did your tanks come in the bare plastic?

The bike looks mean ! ... The new Orange is Black The shape of the tank is really pretty. It reminds me some of the RC8 tank corners if you know what I mean. Really nice.
This is the exhaust pipe we are talking about ! Something is missing at the front.... ehm... Fender? High or low mount?
And there is the pillion peg support. Does it serve something I cannot figure ?

Mark, any comments on the handlebars ?

I have been working on a Rally Low pipe that will replace the stock pipe that is on the bike in this picture.
The Pillion peg support has been cut and will help support the low rally mid pipe. I will be using a Factory KTM
660 stainless Rear can.At that time I will finish my custom Bash plate ,It will have a tool box on the right side
and come up to protect the low pipe header on the left side.
I will be using a 2011 KTM 990 LOW front fender ( still waiting for a Factory 660 low fender) along with a pair
of 2012 WP USD Twin chamber forks with 300mm of travel and a Re-worked rear shock .
The bars are from Fasst company they are called FLEX Bars ( very nice for these old shoulers)
I also use BRP rally gaurd mounts with Acerbis Gaurds with AME grips.

Just ordered the evo2 tanks to replace the original old style rally raid tanks. Seems like the new design stays narrower. Guess I'm keeping the 690 for awhile!

John,

My bike has the EVO1 adventure fairing/tank kit. I want to upgrade to this rally light along with the tanks. Your website mentions that this will only fit with your fabricated cockpit support. I bought my kit back in March 2011. So how can I tell whether mine is using the LC8 cockpit support or your own designed one..
