Re: KTM 950/990 adv Carbon tank guards

I note that they are Cedea--made in eastern europe somewhere--the company use CNC machined moulds, do Ferrari hoods etc--and did some trick frame guards for my old 640A. If the lacquer is coming off (assuming that they are lacquered in the first place?) then its nothing that some 1200 wet and dry wo...

brilliant Chris--I presume that you had to change the oil as well?--illustrates the force of running water!--you can't beat an Alp.

Re: KTM 790 Adventure and Adventure R test rides

on the subject of the 790 are there any owners out there? reason is I've just finished the carbon/kevlar tank protectors--prototype(first out of the mould). They bolt on using the outside 3 bolts OVER the stock plastic to give an extra protection layer. The tanks are about 1k if you hole one. I'm l...

Re: Where has your Transalp carried you?

I think the problem, particularly in the UK, is that people resent the Alp as it does the "adventure" thing very well--and it dates back to 89?. I personally don't like the styling "upgrades " from 99 on--sort of cheapened it. It was always very popular in Europe and spares are fortunately plentiful...

Re: KTM 790 Adventure and Adventure R test rides

thanks Alun--however, my local dealer has a test bike etc--hence the pics --used their bike to do a test fit. The 790 is far too expensive and ok as a road bike but the tanks and bashplate are fragile for genuine offroad (IMHO)--I'm sure that other stuff will be out soon--I'm just trying to provide ...

Re: Wanted transalp 650 engine bars and ally skid plate

shame--I'm making a carbon/kevlar bashplate for the 600s and have one on mine to test--won't fit the 650 due to the doubtful "restyle"?
