Gotta part number for that bag? Don't see a SM-T-specific bag on the web site.

Thanx.

It's the FAMSA FA244/73 E-Max Sport, it's a new bag which is why it's probably not on the site yet.

Question Handlebar specs?

Anyone have the measurements for the stock handlebar? Width, rise, pullback, bend, etc.

Anyone make a bigger tank for it yet?

I contacted Aqualine/Safari, they have no plans to make one.

It needs at least 2 more gallons.

Thanks

Touring two people

I dont have much experience going two people on a bike.

Would this bike with standard suspension, yes everything standard. With me (72kg), a girl (63kg) and some light luggage, likely camping stuff for summer weather be an issue?

Any tips except to pack it light? Looking at these Holan bags: http://holan.pl/en/product/24/181/40...O___Zega_cases

Edit. added a picture, pelicase as topbox...

Thanks on before hand.

Just bought this bike - a 2011 ABS in white. Awesome bike, absolutely love it. Having ridden and owned so many different bikes including ducatis, triumph, BMW, Yamaha, this must be the most fun and complete bike I can think of. I will post pictures soon.

Yes the out of the box KTM setup is never a one size fits all. KTM products are more weight and ride style sensitive than other OEMs.
This can be both a god send and a big pain.

The best way to deal with it is to save some cash for aftermarket valving. There are a lot of really good shops out there. You need to ask questions to make sure that your riding style fits their capabilities. Then you need to make sure that your bike is front-rear balanced for you. The reward is one sweet ride.

Silencer

One can save some weight by changing out the stock silencers, but I don't want so spend like 1000 for the once KTM supply...

Akrapovic Evo Slip-On saves 9kg they say http://www.ktm-parts.com/62005099000.html 1660$ though...

Any suggestions? Get them custom made somewhere?
