KTM 640 Fairing
« on: May 07, 2009, 06:55:46 am »
Good day dogs

I was thinking of taking the front fairing off my 640 adventure, removing the lights, speedo, etc, and making it look like the enduro versoin in front with a long range tank.

Only thing that is still bothering me is the wiring? Will the bike stille be able to start with all the connectors removed?
Will the Electric start still be able to function, Because kicking that beast in the at the end of the river in De Wildt is not nice

Don't break your bike before the photo shoot... she's a model too and needs some TLC for the cameras...  :mwink:

And you may loose your spot for the hot lass that will be draped over your baby!   :pot:

Not speed, but i little bit of weight, and will make my field of vision more open... Which I think gives me more confidence..

That will do well on the plaas race.

Flat taps to the holeshot, should get there first if you can slow down from the 140kph you will reach ;)

And I saw a guy on a XT500 with towel rail type bash guards on last time !

mmm intresting
There are no short cuts to anywhere worth going!
Performance is paramount, niceties only exist if it doesn't affect performance.

Don't rush it, it's helmet time you need, not a destination. Take it easy.
