Read what I mean... not what I say

Thanks Daniel

If you need the taller center stand and side stand pm me, I've got both, they came with my bike when I bought it from previous owner who planned to raise his to the s specs. They are in the bags with ktm part #s let me know if you are interested.

Thanks in advance
I did the swap on my 05.5 with an 04 'S', so I think it was the 265mm. We swapped the forks, shock, front brake lines, sidestand and centerstand. Easy swap, only took a few hours. So to answer your question, speedo cable was fine.

I think my seat hight is about 39 inches on the ground now before I get on it. You will love the ride

Enjoying the thread, keep up the great work!

The brown truck just dropped of one of CJDesigns new Expedition Storage Boxes





...mounting couldn't be easier.. it uses the bike's stock exhaust mounting locations








I know you gents like lots of pics.. so I'll post up a bunch of photos from different angles here in a minute...

Hi Geek, did you put a little foam strip between the fender and the box?
Even though it doesn't rub, when gunk gets stuck, it will wear through the anodized material and some of the aluminum. Fwiw.
Looks good in black too!!

Because its back on black I tried to get a few different lights to make it show up...

Here are some pics with and without seat and bodywork to put it in perspective....
I'll post more pics when I have the racks back on the bike (probably this weekend).

I appreciate the tip! Where exactly do you mean? Do you have a photo?

How big is it? If you yell into it you hear an echo

I'm very excited about this product. We are often in the middle of nowhere on our summer adventures and have no choice but to be self sufficient. The extra capacity to carry both a front and a rear tube, full size tire irons, etc is going to make life (and packing) so much easier.

Or... if we stop @ subway before we head into the desert I can get a foot long sub (or 5) now instead of a six inch

The lid is foam lined to keep it from rattling


Wanna bring a full roll of duct tape because your buddy's KLR keeps falling apart?



...and to put that in perspective... here is a full size tire iron




....I know what everyone's really wondering, how many beer does it hold. To be determined.

Sorry for the bad pix.
But it's right below the upper rack bolt where the fender meets the box.

And the foam in the lid also make it super water resistant.

It looks great in black!!
I might spray it

So you mean where the fairing touches it (the side panel) not the rear fender correct?

Thanks for the headsup... I'll put some foam along the backside of the carbon fiber.

Yes sorry sorry. Typing on the phone.
Yes on the back side of the side panel.
Your carbon panel looks nice btw.

Looks great Edward! Black fits your bike well.

Hope that was the correct black?

Great point Chris. I'm trying to source more of the padding to add in with the kits for those that want it.

I've found the best stuff so far is the extra foam from the Shorai Batteries. If you have one of those, you should have extra when you install it. Just a heads up if you still have that handy.
