Morning everyone ......

K - so I checked the HolanUSA.com website - and their bars are shown on a 640 but does not mention anything about fitting (or not) a 620. Which of course gets back to mounting points ......

I'm gonna check through some fiche on the front end, per se, of the 640 and 620, as well as, shoot HolanUSA off an e-mail .......

But off the top of any one's head - does anybody have anything to chime in with about mounting points on the front off a 97 620 v.s. (let's say) a 99 640?

A Windshield for my bike!

Hi!
This is the first step i went through, looking for a taller windshield.







Then I thought I will like it more in a non transparent color.
I will post the final work.
Cheers!

Aww come on guys, get a Gold wing. On a serious note, I rode a DRZ with a taller screen on it, and the only thing that came to my mind is that thing hitting me in the throat! I've never had protection from the elements before (well, before my now sold Vstrom), so I consider what the KTM has is plenty.

Low's the way to go!

I think I just joined the KTM Adv club as well. Can't say for sure as I made the deal over the phone, from another country. But a buddy is supposed to go pick it up for me later today.


Wrk2surf,

She turned out great! Hope you have some more detailed pictures you will post in your build thread.
