No idea really, but I'll take any exhaust bits that may be going in the bin. But, if you think its to much to ask of them fair cop. I have a DL650, so that condition should easily be for-filled.

What's the benefit with piping the exhaust low as pictured above? Do you make more torque with the extra piping or just make it easier to mount accessories with the pipe being out of the way down there?

A must do when adding KTM rally-tanks. Theren is no room behind them for the original routing.

In fact it should make more torque and change the power curve the pipe is roughly 350mm longer and if I actually stayed awake during math I probly could do some really trick equation to estimate the torque gains but I,m a dumb ass

But ,m doing some thing different to EI with my pipes it may pay off it may not , but it will look cool (I hope)

So I've gone and made the rally exhaust after waiting 8 days for the TIG torch to turn up . After a quick 3 hour play burning holes and making a mess only ever using a TIG for a few hours I dove in cut up the header added a bit here and a bit there
She's all done need to make a adjustment and cut out 10mm as my foot rests on the pipe .

I've been toying with the idea of a rally fairing, but then I would have to sell my SM setup. Does that thing give you any real protection from the wind at highways speeds?[/QUOTE]

I was curious about this also. What are these Rally Fairings like at speed?

So I order paid for the 690 rally tanks a couple of months ago due to land this week , so getting excited when he phone rings last night
And a voice saying " Micah I have some bad news KTM HQ will not release your tanks untill Feb"
WHAT ! . Then I thought Dakar , there keeping the tanks in stock for the factory riders , as spares. Dam you über fast factory riders you should have your spare organised Months ago.

So the dream bike build is stuck in the garage . I still have the current set up but have posted it in the classifieds I had advertise it before but took it down due to the tax office holding my refund for two months , this is what paid for the Factory tanks and seat .

So we're too now , well I'll contact ash at cape town ,see what they have but this makes it more costly with freight .

Or I sell the 690 and build the 500 ???
