I am finally getting around to installing the tank guards.
Any updated tips on installing them or what adhesive to use?

Cheers

There's a bit of info on the 1st post of this thread but I'd recomend a polyurethane based adhesive, I use Sikaflex 227 but you can also use somehting like this;

Just run a bead around all the edges and maybe a few through the centre.

Cheers,
Michael

Thanks Michael;
I picked up some polyurethane Dap on the way home from work along with a bargain on some Irwin Quick Grip clamps.
Tomorrow I will be gluing!

Cheers

KLX700R with KTM 690RR Carbon/Kevlar Fairing

Below is a quote from this excellent thread in the Australian section of the build of the mighty KLX700R for the Condo 750 rally, in case any one missed it.

The fairing was built by Rally Raid Engineering

When I only had a couple of weeks to get my arse into gear and decide wether I put the bike into Condo in Enduro mode or make the nav tower and get the fairing to fit, lights and paint ect.

Michael From Rally Raid Engineering had just got his new KTM530 to start prepping for Condo a few weeks before when he got a phone call from me stating that YES, I want a fairing ASAP, we are gunna try our best to get the fairing on and fitted up properly. This put an unbelievable deadline on him to get one out for me and get his own bike ready.

(Quote) Doctor, hate to say it Jnr ! but feck the fairing off, looks shit hot without it ,
slap me down

but it just does not look right round the tank area .


Well we all weren't sure what the end result was going to look like.


__________________

But the end result was the most photographed bike over the weekend.





Next Tuesday the bike will go down to spend a month in the front foyer of MX1 Australia's office. they are over the moon with how the sponsorship deal went marketing wise for them, win lose or draw, the bike had a lot of room on it for some serious advertising.
The bike was crashed twice over the weekend at Condo and know body knows this yet but on Easter Saturday I took the KLX700 for a nice ride to Frying Pan Creek forest and ended up putting the big girl down on the tar doing 90 kph around a hairpin corner and threw it down the road 30 meters. thought I broke both arms, a thumb and my wrist. But a few days on I'm just sore. I didn't want to lift the bike up as it was laying on its LHS. But as I lifted it the was no more marks on the bike other than deeper scratches in the LHS hand guard down to the metal end cap.

So after 3 big crashes the carbon fairing is still together with a couple of inch long cracks in the corners.

Nice work Michael from Rally Raid Engineering, what an indestructible product. For any of Michaels products check out his vendor page.
Thanks again for making this very special bike come to life and be functional. Sorry you didn't get to finish your bike properly.

Thanks again Mate.
Cheers Fogo...

Nice work on the fairing Michael!

The Kawa looks really beautifull . I wonder how can you bulit some multi purpose rear tanks that would adapt to most bikes so that you do not have to have different designs...


Keep up the good work and don't forget the 640 Advs

Till later,
D.
