Famous last words :shock: ... Do you have the "adjustable" tank brackets in case the front tank bolt will not fit ?

Motohooligan sells them, I modified my own. See Image

I am hoping the fuels here in Europe have less or no ethanol and that the tank hasn"t swelled.
Dremel tool on standby just in case.

DONE!

No big issues.
No tank swelling, bolted right up.

Made some brackets to get good inner outer fairing alignment since the outer fairings were the old type.
Will post pics later.
Got done at 11PM last night and it was still raining.

Looking good!
You just have to do something about these dreadful looking mirrors.
The rest looks spot on but the mirrors look so out of place!

Very nice. That color should be a factory option.

The tank pad is a KTM part for the SDR.

Factory color in 05 and 06 (Titanium)

Was going to do CRG lane splitters bar end mirrors but in the tight traffic in Paris they wouldn't last a week.
May do something else.

Thanks

Awesome. How is the gas mileage? So sick of being the laughing stock when making the group stop for gas :)

Did you change the mask too?

Still running on the first fill up.
Will see soon, got to be getting near the end.

No mask change yet, still looking for good second hand parts.
But again I will have to do the paint, kind of over that.

The wind blast is not so bad, I am not convinced on the change.

6.8 - 7.2 L/100KM
But there was some hooliganism involved.
It is windy at the Ton.
