You may have to, especially if you wear Dianese style body armour under your jacket, make some adjustments to the N.B. I removed the rear metal bracket and reversed it, and also used the larger side brackets. Typically these N.B's were designed for motocross and to be worn with those plastic MX style body armour and not jackets.

Or, you could just rivet/sew a piece of leather/vinyl on the back of any jacket for the rear arm of the N.B to slide into.

This way you can wear the jacket zipped up, water/wind proof. The N.B fits very well over the top of most jackets with internal body armour. You will only have some fitment issues when you wear a body armour suit under the jacket.
C&B, wise words thanks! I've been doing a little experimenting myself since my post and have arrived at same conclusions... one just needs not be scared of cutting some holes and threading a needle.... and I got a ktm jacket coming in the post too

cheers

I've bought lots of stuff from these people in Germany, they're very efficient, you'll have it in around 10-14 days. Euro197 less 19% + postage.

Cheers

I got the last one

When I picked up the new bike I ordered a Rally JAcket last week. Apparently there were no XLs but I thought the large would be OK and the KTM Importers apparently had 1. I have it now sorry if you have to wait but its a cool jacket..

Bought my Rallye jacket (earlier version ) at Sommer KTM Germany.

They are now called KTM Team West.

Price off their website , less 19% tax + post.

Postage for my Jacket was 40 euro.

Link to new Rallye jacket.

http://ktmteamwest.com/shop/catalog/...ducts_id=29482


Price = 237 eur
Less tax = 192 eur
Plust postage 40 eur (assuming that hasn't changed)

232 eur = $455 aud delivered.



Most of the US KTM dealers will not ship to Australia anymore.
KTM world still do , but they don't list the Rallye jacket on their web site.

I just got it through my local KTM dealer. They ordered it and had it in 2 days. Retail is about $370 which is same as DRyriders and stuff. I find the jacket really comfortable. With the vents open its OK on a hot day, still a little hot and it seems warm enough for cool mornings, see how it handles canberra winters though. Only ridden in short storm so far but seemed waterproof enough not sure how it will cope with all day in the rain. It fits OK with the Leat but I havn't ridden with it yet. I am thinking about ordering the pants for winter use down here, anyone tried them?

If you get completely stuck, try a post forwarding service (like price usa), they will buy for you, and only charge 5%.

Can work out very well on some items that are ridiculously marked up for Aus.

Hi,

I already have my KTM Rallye Jacket. Wears nice and confortable with the leatt brace on, that is why i bought it.

I have already removed all internal pads: shoulders, elbows and the ridicoulous small back protector. cause i will always wear it with a thor protection jacket under it.

How is the camel back be supposed to install?. It doesn´t look like a regular water bag would fit on that small back protector pocket. And it is not clear for me how to guide the camel back hose to the outshell front hole...........

the jacket has the amazing ammount of: 8 front pockets, 3 internal pockets, 2 sleeves pockets, 4 back pockets, plus that small front one for the camel back hose. A TOTAL OF 18 POCKETS ˇˇˇˇˇˇ

i´ve already used this jacket for enduro riding, trail riding and road riding.
only complain is that air enters through a small open space between collar and front zipper. i´ll try to narrow that with some additional velcro. any way, i seriously recommend to wear a thermal neck layer under the brace, specially in cold weather. it keeps you warm and prevents some erosions on your neck skin with the brace. for warm weather, a cotton buff will bake the deal. see dakar riders all are wearing something on the neck.

Cordura materials looks strong enough for branches abusing and in case of falling, even on asphault.

the colour is too bright (orange, beige) but it will turn darker when used, specially on spring&summer dusty rides.

i bought this one because acerbis desertika looked too light and bright to me. there are not many options, let´s see that troy lee blais jacket..........to be released soon.

I have one as well but havn't ridden with my Leat yet but love the jacket works really well best jacket i have owned.

The big back pocket has a metal eylet hole on the inside if you put the hose through this and run round the bottom inside the jacket and up inside the left zipper through the 2 velcro loops and then through the jacket holes and out through the little rubber grommet at the front. You can put the end in the little middle pocket although its hard to do while riding. The only problem is the back pocket is quite small so ideally suited to about a 1.5l bladder. Mine is a 3l and I can squeeze just under 2 and still fit it in the pocket. I am going to get a smaller bladder for it but you then need to carry any extra water somewhere else. I'm using camel back bladders as I believe they are way better than anything else.

Regards

Micl

Yep - I've lost heaps of them. Don't use the domes - just rely on the velcroe and double flap arrangement.
