Hi Pete,
I ´d like a Tank and a Bashplate. I don´t need Passenger Pegs.
I think a Handle on the back would be good, if the original ones don´t fit anymore.

Who's in?

Pete,
I'm in for tanks and a bash plate!

Did you also do the exhaust?

im lookin at this and the bulb comes (dimly) on that with these tanks I will also need a Africa Queen's or GPR like exhaust system since the tank takes up the space that is normally where the mufflers reside.....

That's really the only downside for me (although I guess it isn't for many), mainly due to cost. Looks great though, and I'd love the extra fuel, obviously. I'm interested, subject to total cost. Any need to beef-up the subframe (perhaps I missed this)?

I think that the availability of the GPR exhaust system makes this viable now.


My sub frame is stock "04"

21 Lt............ Mine has survived the time test...... 3 years. They always have fuel in them.

OK - hopefully I can answer all of the questions;

Replica tanks: - No the subframe wont need reinforcement, ive carried more than 50kg of luggage and gear over 1000s of kms of hellish corrugations and its fine. I expect the unit itself to weigh around 2kg, obviously the fuel will add weight but thats the purpose of the tanks. Im expecting 20+ lt capacity, so 44+ integrated. Itll fit the 990's, but not with ABS as this is where the unit is housed. Sorry.... The 990S doesnt come with abs I think - I'll have to look at that..

Yes - I have the GPR system and its made to fit. KTM twins just had them on sale for around $870US I think - bargain. May still do. The centre tank "link" does require removal of the original X over, and the 2-1 wont fit. Maybe I should become a GPR dealer

Pillion pegs are in, no moulded handles, modified OEM units that will still support the luggage plate. Also by recessing the pillions I can fit my KTM luggage racks with a bit of modification (more on that later).

Bashie: - its a multipul CF/kevlar laminate thats vacuum infused. Holes in the front aid airflow around the battery/rectifier/some low headers. Being as wide as it is it deflects just about all of the crap from the front wheel, infact my boots stay super clean all the time, especially riding in the rain.

Did I mention I do a screen as well??? (incorporating a foil and front vent to reduce that fuc#@g turbulence)... more details soon.

Time frames: ATM im looking at having the mould for the bashie finished in Jan parts then as well and the tank im looking at late Feb (hopefully) given it'll be summer here, its hot, I like a beer and I get easily distracted.

Thanks for the interest guys, much appreciated. When I first saw the 950 Rallye bikes I wanted one, but given they were never made commercially I took the next logical approach. Learning more about their most famous rider Fabricio Meoni and the foundation he set up in Africa made me think of what a great guy he was and the great charity work that still continues today. Not comparing myself with FM but I liked the idea that he gave something back to the sport that he loved and thats why 5% of the proceeds of all parts I make I donate to the Australian Royal Flying Doctor Service - because all riders come off at sometime, Aust is a bloody big place and these guys and girls do a brilliant job looking after us no matter where we ride. So if you do end up with any of these parts - you'll be helping look after the RFDS as well.

Cheers Pete

I'll get back to the mould making now - another part for another bike, doh.

CF Bashplate GPR compatible

Hi Pete;

From the pictures I could not tell if the Bash plate you have built is for the GPR single pipe or not. I looked through the last few pages of posts but if it was written, I overlooked it so sorry if I am asking you to repeat somthing you've already mentioned.

All the same, could you please let us know? Also some indication of price point so I can start softening up the Missus would be good.

Thanks.

PS) Great looking work, BTW!

Hi Terence,

Yep - its specifically for the GPR (cos thats what I have and im selfish). The rhs curls up and around the lowest part of the header Y join protecting if from who knows - either way its protected. Im working on a quick release mount for the rear atm. I'll get some pics up when its done if you like
Cost - still working on that, but I'll pm you when its done.

Pete

Forgive if this has been talked about already but will the subframe be able to handle the weight of tanks/gas AND some luggage?

I'm not talking about hard side bags here but something in the line of a Giant Loop bag or. . . . . .?

Yep, I've done a few trips loaded with gear and with 30 extra liters of fuel (loaded high and far back on the rear rack) and never had an issue. A giant loop and this config wouldnt be an issue (weights is held low on both the proposed aux tanks and the gl).

Hope it helps
