But thinking of ur target audience how many will need extra range on a bike that already does 500 km to a tank full?

That's what I thought but I've been getting quite a few enquires on my website about it.

It'll also fit the SXC which needs the extra range more than the adventure.

You can never have too much petrol

It will be interesting to do the 24hrs Rally Raid with all tanks full in one go

Oh and I forgot to mention the original seat leaves a massive gap between the top of the tank and bottom of the seat, older rear guard has to be used and the rear cross piece thingy at the back of the subframe that the original guard attaches to needs to be cut out and replaced by a piece of flat bar.

Thanks Trev, looks like I'll be using less of the original tanks shape than I thought!

I think it'll still be worthwhile to start with a mould off them though, it's usually easier to start with something than nothing.

Tank for Freeride?

Hi Michael, In some german forum there is quite a bit of talk regarding the demand for additional fuel capacity for KTMs Freeride- basically adding some 2 liters either side of the existing tank replacing the plastics. They reckon a run of about 20+ units could be economically viable. Ever thought about that? Cheers waldecker

It's certainly do-able, I've been thinking of a similar idea for enduro bikes, just swap out the tank shouds for small add on tanks when extra fuel is required. I'd worry about the mounting points though, those bolt holes that the shrouds mount to weren't designed to hold much weight.

If anyone's got a Freeride I'd be willing to take a look.

20+ units is probably minimum for a plastic tank, I could make it viable for ~5.

Cheers,
Michael

Haven't got one yet, but might pull the trigger next year- might come back to you then.

Are you selling the mounting brackets for the 690 rr copies as well, and what are they made to fit?

Hi Pete,

At this stage it's just the fairing, no brackets or anything.

It's a straight copy of the 690RR Dakar bike fairing.
