Oh, and did the big tank thing ever materialize?

Kieth at ADB has been trying to get some new tanks made for some time, I like the Acerbis Aux tank but think Bones' use of the KTM side panel tank is the schit http://bonesrantsandraves.blogspot.com/ . I heard from Rusty about the ATK site and will post about it on TT and here on JM so we don't get this thread bumped.

Guess I should chime in here. ATK's suck! They fill all my winter time with fun projects. I am up to 5 now.

95 605 custom SM


2 99 605ESDS's



1 2000 DT600 (Adjustible WB headstock)

1 2002 605DTSM Currently on loan to my 16year old Son


I think they are one of the best all-around DS bikes out there. Lee at ATK is still racing (team of 3) in Barstow to Vegas and others, I think they placed
3rd in class last year.

Just got done lookin at yer blog (again!) and am still just over what you've done to the green/black one.

That oil cooler looks like its a fan-farging-tastic idea.

Ditto with the aux tank.

So what did you do to it?

Don't tempt me. I have been avoiding the ATK/Cannondale's.

The Subframe is reinforced at the forward bolt with a plate. The Pannier mount also has a lower link that goes from the lower front corner to the lower subframe to main frame mount that transfers a part of the load down and forward. Counting these two mounts the pannier frame attaches at eight points and it also reinforces the Aluminum subframe too. By using the .065 wall Stainless instead of Carbon steel I ended up with a rack that only weighs 15lbs but can support 25lbs per can (I probably had more in it last trip) plus the added fuel on the LH side. Bike weighs in at 330lbs in a certified scale with both tanks full and the hard cans mounted but empty.

I think it got up to 18deg F today, I might just rid to work tomarrow...

We're in a cold snap here. Didn't get above 60-ish! Down in the upper 30s at nite.

Still ended up out running with the dog tho. Just hadta put on a base layer.

Rode the GS-Adv to work. Hadta put on a light fleece under my poseur suit's (aka Rallye 2) jacket. I keep lookin at these jhavelina tracks thru the desert wondering WhereTF does THAT go? ...but am too skeered to take the GS-Adv out there to find out.

Can any of you guys help me with a little information?

I have a set of Motard wheels from my old ATK 350DS, do you know what other bikes the Talon Hubs suit, i assume ATK didn't get their own custom hub, instead they would have used an existing Husky/KTM/BMW hub.

Any information would be appreciated. I contacted Talon head office, but they were totally useless, they just suggested i contact the Australian Distributor......

How would he be expected to know about a small US manufacturer, using Talon

If you don't get any info here, Thumper Talk has a good 'exotics' section where a lot of the posters from the ATK forums post too. Unfortunately, the ATK forums where the most info about these bikes was in one place seems to be dead.

You may try contacting American Dirt Bike for more info. FWI know, Katoom parts are most interchangeable.

Good luck!
