Rally Bashplate and Other goodies

They deal with US customers everyday. Fast service, and better prices than stateside KTM dealers..

For me though, I'll just model something up and send it out to our sheetmetal vendor.. $600 for a bashplate is a bit much for some AL bent plate..

KATOOM PD wind screen

Hi Chris, Wind screen extension is recycled Touratech R100 GS windscreen spoiler.page 162 2002 catalog, from my R100 PD. Works pretty well, wind now breaks a top of my helemet. I am only 5'8" so I don't know how it would work for someone that is tall enough to ride this bike. It can be removed and reinstalled in less time then it takes to read this post. Only mod was to file two slots in the faring for it too slide on. No big deal but if you are on the fussy side the two slots will bother you. Only put the edgeing on because I had a short peice laying around. It works just as well without it.
The bashplate tool box I got from Sommers in Germany. It comes with the tool box, water tank setup or tool boxes on both sides. I got the tool boxs on both side one. Extra heavy duty and the tool boxes works for a few extra tools and some oil and chain lube

Hope this answered your questions if not let me know.
Good luck with the ALCAN thing, sounds like a hoot. The KTM should be up to the task.

Question Flyshop's Adventure

Hello Flyshop,

After examining pictures of your Adventure closely, it seems that you have installed a KTM SXC unchoked silencer.
A few questions:

Does the bike require re-valving after you installed the silencer?

Does the engine produce more power after the installation?

Any difference in the noise level?

Any difference in the engine vibration level?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Cat

Inseam challanged and SXC exhaust

Sorry Allan and Cat0020 that I didn't get back to you sooner.

To Allans question about being short in the pants ass and the seat height, with the side stand on instead of the center stand, it becomes somthing you can live with. The bike sags when you get on and I can put both balls of my feet on the ground.

To Cat0020 and the SXC exhaust I opened the airbox,and rejetted, moved needle one clip and 150 main. I went as high as 155 main but was too rich at 8 or 9 thousand feet. I live at over 5000'. As far as noise just a little louder than stock and I do mean just a little. Bike has alot more snap with these changes and will worth while. Vibes about the same,plenty, but you get use to them.

Have fun
