Just do the math, ordering direct will be cheaper even after shipping. You have to deduct VAT and there are also no duties etc on motorcycle parts in the US, you guys are lucky as you can get the parts cheaper than somebody in the UK!!


I stand corrected The forks are off a 2011 Husaberg 450 FX

I saved a ton by ordering direct no state sales tax and shipping was pretty much the same And the pricing was right definitely order direct with rally raid UK

I've got the same forks on my '12 Berg and love them without any valving changes, probably the best out of the box forks KTM ever made.

We don't pay the VAT, but we do pay about 10% customs and import fees.


I received an order from Rally Raid last year that had an additional $50.00 fee from UPS...
and when I received my fairing and tanks from RR a few weeks ago, I also got a bill from DHL for $270.00

The best info I could get is that anything above $700.00 USD is taxed.

Maybe it varies by state...although I can't imagine that California would ever charge less tax than Texas...

Finished the switch over from original Rally Raid tanks to new EVO2 tanks. Ended up being a very involved job because of other mods I had done and a lot of experimentation with fuel line connections.

Better features with the EVO2 tanks:

Narrower by a lot compared to old tanks.

Fuel is carried lower-lower center of gravity and can keep fuel lines open between Rally tanks and OEM tank. No need for the external fuel valve that old tanks used.

Tanks have fuel valves and I would guess have internal filter screens, so external fuel filter is not needed.

Fuel nozzles are a bit better to get to. Makes a difference as I always have a tank bag(of course sits on the front of the seat on this bike).

Complications with EVO2 tanks:

All about installation.

The tanks fit VERY tight to the frame. You have to relocate the coil and the rectifier. Not a big deal except that I have an aftermarket mosfet rectifier which is a bit larger and has different connectors and stock unit. So supplied bracket to relocate the rectifier does not work. I eventually managed to squeeze it on the bracket by drilling some new holes and grinding a small amount of cooling fins off the rectifier so they do not hit the radiator.

I spent a lot of time trying the keep my stainless steel quick disconnects for both tanks so I could just pop off the tanks instead of having to remove the fuel lines from the tank valves. I ended up giving up because space is just too tight to fit those things and not cause other problems. I do have a quick disconnect between the stock tank and the Rally tanks.

Here is a pic of the rectifier mount I had with old tanks:

And here is with new tanks:


I ended up spending a good 10-12 hours on this project. That also included installing the rad guard and rad screen from Rally Raid. Installation instructions from Rally Raid were pretty good. Almost all the time I spent was fitting the rectifier and messing with the fuel lines. BTW the way they say to do the fuel lines is the right way

I got a black tank and orange shrouds. I doubt I will install the shiny black graphics, but who knows.

Re: New Tanks

How does the bike handle off-road fueled up with the Evo2 tanks?

The new fairing design looks very sharp,and compliments the slim look of the new kit.
New graphics are being designed to go with the EVO2 tanks & fairings,and we will have kits available from Christmas on our webshop,for delivery worldwide.

Haven't ridden the bike with EVO2 tanks yet but not a big difference with the original tanks. I would think EVO2 would be slightly better as fuel is lower and closer to the bike by a small margin.

I spent all week-end installing the Evo-2 tanks and fairing...found 2 problems


the aluminum plate that sits on top of the 2 long spacers (painted black) is not contoured correctly and will interfere with the fairing side panels... you have to trim the forward edge or you won't be able to get the front edge of the fairing panels to pull up to the front windscreen surface.

also, if you're using the RR Scotts steering damper, it will force the ignition switch back another 1/4" and the top bolt on the coolant tank will no longer line up... the only fix will be to weld the tower pin plate to the top edge of the clamp plate that hold the fairing yoke mount in place...

I'll take some photos tonight to further clarify....

And...

A further issue with the yoke mount partially covering the VIN... not a problem in Texas, but I'm guessing the Mexicans aren't going to let me cancel my TVIP if they can't read the VIN.

The only possible fix will be to engrave another VIN plate and mount in another location....
and hope the Mexicans don't notice that it's glued on and not stenciled into the frame.
