Hi Xavi,

I've just emailed to the guys in Bursig some questions related to this matter (it looks like they're racing with a Beast). As soon as they answer me, I'll tell you what.
I can't see it quite well, but it looks like the sub frame has been modified, what do you think?

OK José Luís! If you did, then I'll be waiting for your news; what I would like to know is just if the subframe has been modified or not to install the low rise Pillion seat cover like this , perhaps the picture one is not the same as the video one, not sure about it, but the video one maybe has the original subframe without any modifying on the subframe, it looks like that both are done by the same : schittko-motorradsport.

Seeya JL!!

Not a word back from Bursig so far... Sorry for not answering before, but haven't got any notification this thread had new activity :roll:

Not long ago I bought a new adjusting plate for the Beast and I recall to have seen someone of the family racing a Beast. Can't see any info or reference to the sdk1290r in that schitko website.

Anyway, I've ordered today a taylored lower subframe. We'll see how it works..

Maybe confused but perhaps the solution was closer to me...look at this powerpart:

Image

if you look at the superduke 1290R configurator in ktm.com : http://www.ktm.com/es/configurator/?mod ... SDUKER2015
and you add the item..it looks like just what I want!

Image

well..not exactly because I would had to cut the rear light protector cause I want to use the bike on the street, and I'd have to mount/umount every time my wife decides to come with me but pretty nice and cheap!

What do you think guys?
Has anybody tried it?

Appears to be racing only, does not appear to be much room to fit the standard brake light.
I do like the profile though.

Nice! I wish could have a 360º look to that bit, but I'm afraid that it covers the taillight.. :cry:

Here's the link for buying it!

"Ready to Race" in a matter of minutes. Simply replace the pillion seat with the pillion seat cover. Includes rear light cover.

Looks good

Some better pics (better lighting) at different angles etc would be good

As I promised, a new set of pics with the glass fiber power parts seat cover modified in better light conditions
The reason was to have more free space to move better on the seat in sport conditions specially for tall guys like me :

Mention that the race PP seat cover has a quick lock system to pin up this, and I modified this to reuse de original lock to be easier if I need to change the seat cover for the passenger seat in a few minutes, that's the result below :
