I normally run that oversize sunshield that was in the other picture to help...

I built the enclosure with HDPE and a few different clear plastics (the top one being frosted to cut glare. Totally dust and water proof. So far I love having the large format, but it eliminates the touch screen ability and I am forced to use a bluetooth mouse to change things once it is sealed into the unit. I am going to work on that...





It is built to be breakaway in case of impact and with the anti-vibration mounts the computer has survived 1000 off-road miles so far. This is all just testing and if it fails I will just get a Garmin Montana and call it good.

As far as the headlight guard revising the airflow, I have no real idea as I installed it at the same time as the carbon windshield. That thing is held on with 3m Dual Lock which is 5 times stronger than Velcro and is now my favorite way to semi permanently mount things.

The tankbag is a Touratech and really does work pretty well as it can be removed very easily. I wonder how long it will last, but if it does break, I will modify it to be better.

In retrospect, I am a bit of a dork to not have taken pictures with the computer in there...I will get them a bit later.

Oversized sunshield: it looked like a big black box in the first pics, that was what called my attention the most

Tankbag: for money reasons not planning to change my KTM for a TT one, so it seems I will have to make some mods someday to the KTM one...

I wouldn't say a "dork"... but yes, you should have posted pics including the computer...

High Fender?

Hello. I was wondering what high fender kit you have on your bike? I like the looks of it quite a bit. Looks to suit the bike better than the Touratech kit. By the way, bike looks awesome and very well set up! Thanks!

Thanks for the compliments...I am just trying to cover the bases with my mods. The high fender is not a kit, merely a bunch of parts I sourced from different places and put together. The actual fender is a Polisport rather than Acerbis and then I used the front fork guards from the KTM 80 along with the required mods to hold them on the fork. I got all the info from other members here on this board. Not a tough mod at all...
