A bunch at highway speeds.
If I remember right it came off a SuperDuke. It has 4 recessed bolt holes. It will snap in between the stock plastic and the odometer mount. Easy to remove for trail riding. It really keeps the wind off your chest. In Colorado we had a headwind one day running south on 285 from Antoinita Co. down to New Mexico. Made 70 mph riding on a boring stretch of road doable. Also worked well to tuck behind when riding in rain storms, as my off road helmet lets rain beat my face.

Fandango of Diablo Tank Bag?

I need a new tank bag. I am looking at both the Fandango of Diablo. one is taller than the other. My original KTM one feels a bit high on the bike and feels like it can interferes with the bars.

Is anyone running the Diablo? id like to see a photo on the bike.

Just curious - you guys with the rally raid or sw motech rack that carry substanial weight does it feel like the weight is too far back?

I know its a pain getting to the gas cap having something right over the filler but it seems like that would carry the weight better?

That looks great. Looks sturdier and larger than the Touratech rack.

Anyone have one of these? I wonder if it will work with Berg Briggs' Wolfman Expedition Dry Bag racks. Looks like it should.

Is it large enough to hold a Rotopax?

And is there anywhere in the US to order? It's pretty darn pricey, but what isn't?

I was hoping to find someone domestic that I could call and talk to. KTMtwins carries some RR stuff, but not this.

I'd really like to see it on a bike.

KTMtwins.com carries some of the RR products. You can probably check with them to see if they have or can get then.

I'd strongly suggest getting rid of the stock can if you still have it or you WILL melt, burn, destroy stuff. Got a bud that sells the Giant Loop bags and owns a 690. He's used all 3 sizes on it with no problems (He's got a FMF can on his bike)

Just keep in mind, that thing superheats and stays very hot. I burnt myself on it after the bike had been shut off for 15 minutes before. I melted boots, riding pants, and a tailbag on that stupid thing. Not to mention a couple nasty burns.
