To put it back together I just put the lens in place, held it with some tape, and ran a bead of normal silicone (bath sealant) round the groove.

That's how I repaired my headlight originally (I bought the bike with a cracked headlight reflector) - that was a few years ago and it held up fine. I've just replaced the reflector with one I blagged from another broken unit using the same method.

Sorry I didn't take photos of any of this process, but I took this one of the end result.

I love your quote at the bottom! so true even in any emergency situation, dirt bikes will always have a better chance

We are working on a new gps-mount for 990 Adventure and in this case Garmin Montana.
It will also work with the Zumo, we will also make it for F800GS & XT660Z.
Im developing it together with "crazytok" here at advrider.com.

I will post more pictures when we are finished with the testing.

Can't comment on the bag for obvious reasons! But may I be so bold as to ask which bend of Flexx bars you're running there?


Cheers,

Eek

Sadly, Not much

I dream of being able to work on the KTM again. Even though I might have a blown head gasket after 18K of touring this summer Hell, it might still be packed.....maybe I should look in those bags!!

Finshed The Livery Design.

I think that lad, Crispy, done good!



Plus, a set of H&B Crash Bars were delivered by my friendly neighborhood UPS dude a few minutes back, to go with the gear that arrived from BDCW last week. When the doorbell rang I was putting together a little CJDesigns wishlist, which coincidentally includes one of them there real purty clutch covers, along the lines of what Me, Myself, and I just took delivery of.

But... the best bit is that Mark at Scuderia West just confirmed my bike should be ready to roll towards the back-end of this week.

S'pose I'd better get me US bike test booked pretty sharpish then!

Looks good

I've been very happy with my Crispy Designs set. It has held up well to lots of miles (maybe 14K of back road touring and trails since the install) and I've even tossed it on the ground once to test them



14k Later?

Yup! Yours was one of the bikes I was scrutinizing while making a call on who to get to do the graphics. It definitely helped make my decision, so thanks for that!

Looks even better after the 14k too.

Forks are off and getting some loving.



I knew immediately the front end of this monster needed some loving attention and I know just the people to do the job.

Similar story here, mate! Just with James at Super Plush instead...









Jacked up 35mm, re-valved, stiffer springs and custom pre-load adjustment.

... And so it begins!
