Rally Raid - Evo2 Kit
« on: March 13, 2014, 01:03:46 pm »
Does any one have a RR EVo2 tanks/kit fitted to his/her 690?  Any feedback/comments?

My build threat:

Thanks - so you don't really like it?  I just want to do the tanks for extended range (I think the Safari is even bulkier?)

Anyone have these in Gauteng so that I can sit and feel?

I think the plastic tanks (EVO 2 and Safari) are much more crash-worthy than the fibre kits (Omega, KTM Cape Town).  Main issue I had was the quality of the finish vs the cost.  For what I use it (Amageza once a year) its fine, just not very pretty.  Its width was not a problem after I fitted the rallye footpegs.

Crashing is why I am not considering the fibre kits - ;)  I do that often.

Looking at doing the Amageza (Adventure) this year and need the extended range...  so only options are Safari @ R10k and RR @ R15k.  My understanding is that the Safari one is substantially bulkier than the RR one and moves the weight of the fuel to high.  Thoughts?

If you go rally light, they are both similar and equal, more or less.  If you want to go full rallye set-up with fairing integrated, then RR.

I had to remove a sparkplug during 2013 Amageza as I drowned the bike.  It was manageable to remove 1 side tank in the field.  Taking off a full Safari tank will suck.

If the Safari was smaller (9 - 10 Litres) I would likely have gone with that.  Made it a bit narrower, lighter to remove, etc.

I just sold mine, what have I done
they were great the tanks and worked really well, definitly beter looking and stronger than the Fibre glass ones
fit and finish was perfect
