Well mine is a RB730 roadbook plate with 2 ICOs. But all of their roadbook plates have mounting holes for toggle switches. Thanks for the suggestion though.

What are the R's offsets.

Who's tried aftermarket triples and what offsets have you tried.

While I like the great braking of the stock front system, it's a little much
in the dirt and I'm considering using the rotor and caliper from a 450sx.

This will reduce the unsprung weight by quite a bit.

Max, look at this post. My 2008 690e top triple clamp has the numbers 22 24 (presumably mm). Also, this post may help.

If you need to reduce braking force,just file lots of slots in the pads for less contact area.
Correct, 2012 on do not have adjustable offset (I think; haven't seen one apart).

I can confirm that there is nothing in the 2012 owners manual about changing the offset on the steering stem.

Haven't had mine apart yet...

Three to six months on Rally Raid Evo2 tanks and upper/lower bolts sets from KTMtwins.
Its a RR thing - small production outfit. I was recommended to order in the dead of winter to get RR stuff by riding season.
Merry Christmas

Yikes! I was planning ordering a ton of stuff from them (evo 2 tanks, evo 2 fairing, exhaust, and a few other bits and bobs). Ugh... So looks like I won't have them for this season...

Is it any faster to order straight from the UK?

Order direct from Rally Raid. After shipping you'll save a ton. I saved 60$ on the upper and lower tank bolts and the sprocket protection thing' and they ship quicker then the posted times on KTM Twins site.

On two separate occasions, I've just ordered directly through the RR website system and received my order in a very short time. Highly recommend it.

I guess thats my route then.
I always thought KTMtwins was a good outfit.
Whats the deal with them and crazy long lead times with RR??? I went through this with my Evo1 tanks also.
I have my card # out already so I hope a fast one doesn't get pulled by ***twins.

KTM Twins accidentally sent me the wrong filter skins ...

I contacted them by phone, and the same day they sent the correct ones over to the other side of the world (i.e. to me) express post without charge ...

I have no complaints at all about that sort of service ...

I have had a few orders turn out not so well with KTMTwins, however the customer service always was exemplary and they went beyond what most places would do to make it right. They probably need a certain $$$ amount to order from RR to make it worth while. Shipping across the pond is not cheap.
