here is the link to the 790 AXP plate, but since you've asked for 701 link; we have asked AXP to ship us some 701 plates with next pallet of 790 bash plates, we are JUST waiting for the Rand to settle; the December shipment came in around Euro/Rand = R16.32, and today it is Euro/Rand R18.38 !, so we are biding our time with imports; Motion Pro, Giant Loop, AXP, all of them, until the Rand improves, and we believe it WILL improve again...!
Cheers

There's a few things I still need:
- Luggage rack (from Locomoto - I like this one)
- Skid plate
- Underseat storage kit (not fuel tank)

I use it and it is excellent. It has also been improved with extended side protection.

Ja - magnetic plug looks pretty normal esp for 5000km (which is a good interval imho). For noting the strainer filters can just be cleaned with carb cleaner or petrol and blown out with compressed air. Also you can use HiFlo oil fliters readily available as well - HF155 and HF651

Really nice!!

Must just express my disappointment at seals looking like that in a "premium" product, after short service life. Real kak quality.

Clutch slaves have been giving shit on KTM for many years and they have done fookall about it. Oberon been laughing all the way to the bank. Fix is simply a 50 cent EPDM O-ring.  ::)

Where locally can I get just that airbox? Not looking for the fuel tank / airbox combo.

I don’t think you can, Flying Brick are the local importer of the full kit, so they may be able to order an air box for you, but it would come from the UK

we do sell the replacement airbox component only, I have a sales guy who runs the RADE Garage side for me, will give him  shout to get some details, since we all work from home during lockdown. We actually keep stock, but will need to accces our pastel system to see what stock(s) we have.
