KTM 950 mud consequences...

just coming from a saturday in the mud...

the 950 is just amazing on offroad...

but... who in KTM made the low front fender with the brake tubes on the fender... is AN IDIOT!!!!!
many time the mud just block my front wheels....

this is the result of two little adventures.... because of mud...

the carbonkevlar protection work good... i've break the two plastic pegs....but... i've a leaking fuel problem.... but NOT FROM FRONT AIR VENT TUBES...

when the bike goes down... on the right side... the fuel tubes that connect the two tanks just have a little CUT close to the right tap....
the tube is too short... i'll change with an another more resistant...

but at my opinion the two tap under the tanks are too exposed.... this bike need a engine protection that cover more... like the dakar one...maybe the KTMSOMMER one...

I agree but is the Sommer one made by Touratech? If it's the same as Touratech it's not very good, would be nice if someone made carbon kevlar for this

Looks good but, from the pic, can`t determine if it protects the fuel valves?

AFAIK the more rounder Sommer item is a Desert Storm product.

Hard to tell from the photo Barbasma but is that a puncture in the fuel line or is that a hole from abrasion against something ?
