Africa Twin RD07 Rally fairing ,mask only, by Magnus. A great bike with OEM Africa Twin colors !
A great build from Sebastiaan ,bike is a Honda Africa Twin RD07 with our rally full fairing .
After our success with our Lite fairing kit we decided to update it with something new .. The main idea was to change it and make something new from scratch .But the windshield ,KTM OEM Rally part ,is the most beautiful designed rally part with great aerodynamic angle ,super strong ,light weight ,flexible and the most most important extremely high tested from KTM Official on Dakar Rallies for 4 years and from many many many other rally participants around the world .It was so easy for us to design something familiar or something new,but why to do that and not keep the safe and super sexy Rally part ? Also we believe that OEM parts count more, once you decide to go with a kit . With the windshield which was the main part to work on and make our new updated kit we decide to go also with our high tested MASTECH navigation tower ,so all the front system remains .There is no reason to change something which is great but you can update it and make it greater! We started working hard on making new side panels and make them look as a part which comes direct from KTM factory ,the main idea was to give more lines and make the panels more "breathable" and same time a part of the bike and not just an aftermarket part which we added on a 690. I can say that it was not easy ,it took us many months until the final design . Lines and easy easy mount was the main things ,so we keep the standard mounting places and our new side panels are plug and play with a direct fit on the bike . Side panels fit great on the bike with a factory fit ,go over the voltage regulator and with the air intakes we designed the regulator to take more air .The most important, except the best and quick fit, is that comes as one piece instead of 2 pieces per side . New lower exhaust pipes and new engine guard Carbon Fiber: I have always been a fan of the lower exhaust systems ,no specific reason if you may wonder why . So the bike went on the exhaust workshop and together we fix the best design for lower exhaust pipes . Lower exhaust pipe goes from the standard side as the OEM ,it works with side stand and is ful funcional . Pipe was made ,the bike had already had an FMF exhaust on and as our order for a rally Akra was on backorder from KTM, we kept the FMF. Exhaust bracket we made is not for standard or other exhausts which work with the standard 2 screws bracket. Now the pipes are ready but the new engine guard was a must now .. The engine guards from our rally kits do not fit as the pipes are a little bit lower and also different diameter from the rally pipes ,this was a problem .. The material we choose is ofcourse the CF with extra reinforced inside with Kevlar .These fibers with the high quality epoxy resins we use make it the best to protect the exhaust pipe and the whole engine .Here comes and the brackets ,most aftermarket engine guards use the plastic brackets ,we decide to go with also something hard tested .The brackets we use for our rally engine guard are high quality parts which are made by MASTECH . Engine guard and lower exhaust pipes will run on a small quantity . Finally we have the new GEN 2 kit ready ,it was time to work on some grafix now ! Grafix designer came and made the new outlines. Designs were made and we had to choose which one we will use on our show bike . Grafix choosen and our new GEN 2 Kit is ready. We are very proud for our new design which we believe is the best for your KTM 690 Enduro 2008-2018. Enjoy
This build was the build which change the way of our kit! It was summer 2017 when Marco Antonio Saldarriaga (a well known rally raid rider and Dakar particiant) ordered our kit in order to work and complete his project which was a KTM 690 Enduro Rally Adventure. "Marco is the founder of Mastech Moto in Colombia ,a great big company in quality motorcycle parts and also is on RnD department. " After some conversations we had we, both, aggred to start a big update on the KTM 690 Enduro Adv kit .Marco did all the RnD ,tests ,riding tests ,quality control and also everything produced on the latest technology machines on Mastech's workshops ! Mastech workshop New navigation Tower : One of the first update was the navigation tower ,the mounting bracket remained the same as the mounting on the headtube makes it bullet proof. Work on progress ,Navigation tower update Drawing of the new tower Navigation tower designed in order to give a clear fit ,easy installation of the OEM Speedo and space for anything you like to add ,for example your GPS etc. Its very compaq ,allow better view on the transparent windshield,inside have a lot of space for all the wirings and is designed also for Roadbook use with a different support : "Mastech Roadbook is a new product which will be available via our website.Tested on the most tough rally, Dakar Rally, in the world for several years.Last year was on Ignacio Casele quad ,Raptor 700 Rally.Ignacio was the winner on quads ! " Fuel tank brackets: Fuel tank brackets remained almost the same as the previous we produced ,here Marco made a clamp bracket for the rear mounting points of the fuel tanks .These new brackets fits very fast without any special tool - without require to remove your rear tank or anything like that . This wasnt an easy job as many electronics are near the frame and we have to be very carefull with the final product. Prototypes before the finalproduct Crucial update: Our kit comes with a brand new OEM KTM Rally Keihin fuel pump ,a pump which cost more than 400 euro and is a crucial part and a part which comes with every OEM KTM Rally bike .This pump has a very weak point ,it use an exit tube made of plastic and it can easily broke and ruin your ride-adventure or even your rally. "Broken fuel pump is a nightmare ,just imagine this little thing how easily can ruin your ride ... " Here comes Marco's idea ,a billet tube made to last forever ! He designed and made a piece to cover his needs,when he told us the whole story about the broken tube on his pump and the new billet one we asked it to start producing it for us so any user of Keihin fuel pumps to update his pump with the best solution ! *This part is not including on our Rally Adv kit ,you can add it at an extra cost ,please contact us if you need more details . More and more new parts : This project was amazing as ,except the very best updates which done, Mastech and Marco designed new parts and accesories for KTM 690 Enduro. New wiring harness for fuel pumpRally Radiator GrillRack for saddle bagsBrake hoses holder Finally the Rally project is a reality: After all his efforts to make new quality parts the bike is ready for its first test rides!! Test rides was great and gave us great feedback ! Now its time for grafix and paint :) Photoshoot time : The bike is ready,tested and great .Grafix made and already on the bike ..So lets enjoy it :)
Its been a while now which we start producing our fairing version for the Husqvarna 701 Enduro / SMC . This project took us long time as we need to be ready for the most demanding rider out there. All the parts designed after carefully consideration in our workshop ,i have to tell you that it wasnt an easy task as we was looking to make something which will be fast bolt on ,without asking much work from the installer . Navigation Tower: 701 navigation tower produced by Mastech for Perfect Fairings The most crucial part on a kit is the navigation tower,the navigation tower is your dash planel with all your "expensive" equipment.So this "item" must be bullet proof .Here we had Mastech ,a leader company in Colombia,and Marco Antonio Saldarriaga the "Mastech" founder . Marco designed and produced for us the best navigation tower . Its made of aluminium ,comes ready ,its plug and play with your stock speedo and indicators ,with plently of space inside for all the wiring harness !! Navigation tower is perfectly designed to work with all OEM KTM parts such as the KTM Rally windshield . Headstock Bracket: Billet Aluminium headstock bracket,CNC milled Another crucial part is the headstock bracket .How will we add the tower on the bike frame?? We need an adapter which will allow us a fast ,safe and clean adaptetion without damage the bike .Fortunatelly the 701 comes with 4 M6 threads on the main headstock tube ,these threads was a perfect mounting point .We choose to make an aluminium billet part ,made on a CNC milling machine .The stock points worked as the main points which our bracket mount on the frame.Great designed and produced ,this adapter will allow you to mount it in seconds .Hard tested and bullet proof ! Side panels : While we working on the side panels ,then we redesigned them again :) This was "our task" as all the above designed and produced for us ..Hmmm the design of the side panels was very very difficult ,our first thoughts was to make them with a cut on the seat area but while we design it other brands made something familiar ,more and more other companies made the same designs .. New design side panels ,with nice curves to goes over the seat but not attach the seat. So lets do it again :) , we delete the old designed and we worked again from the start .Now the design we worked goes over the seat on the side of the bike ,with nice curves the side panel hug the seat on the sides .Now the side panels was something new as it goes from down up to the windshield with great curves and lines to match the bike .Our side panels was finally made :) .The most great on these side panels except the design is that mount on the bike like the OEM side panels ,just remove the stock panels and add these ! All mounting points are the same ,no need to relocate anything ! We are using the best materials to produce them . High quality woven roving fiberglass ,the inside of the panels are nice and not as the cheap fiberglass parts .Carbon Fiber and Carbon Kevlar on mounting points ,we use this high quality fibers to get the maximum strength on mounting points and avoid any crackes or damages while you ride or even on a crash .Epoxy resins,flexibility where it need-durability where it needs so we havee to use mixted resins to get the best results we looking for.White gel coat finish,this is the finish which will allow to paint easier the parts.The gel coat finish is smooth and we can do it also on -BLUE-BLACK-RED-ORANGE after request . Lighting system : One of the very first test rides A nice kit must come with nice street legal lights ,one of the TOP brands on AutoMoto lights is the Hella .As KTM choose them for their rally bike series up to 2018 and on many other street bikes . So Hella lights !

Last year a customer contact us and asked for a rally adv kit for his next bike , he had to move from his country to UAE according to his job and he was in need for a new bike to cover his needs on the desert and long distances without gas stations. We was between the KTM 690 E and the Husky 701 E .The problem was that we didnt had a kit or anything for the 701 .. He said as he was a 690 owner he would like to have a 701 and he asked if we could buy a 701 and convert it to a Adventure bike with auxiliary fuel tanks ,navigation tower ,a bullet proof engine protector and anything else was needed to make the best Adventure bike out there !! We said: -YES ,lets do it ! We didnt loose time ,next day we contact the dealer in Greece and we bought the bike . A low used bike (approx 2000Km) in perfect condition this was the best option for our adventure build !! The project was to make an adventure kit which will be extremely simple to mount on the bike ,we choose to use the KTM 450 2015-2018 Windshield and some other parts from this model for our project . KTM 450 RFR 2015-2018 Windshield is a windshield which has beed tested under extremely terrains and rallies arround the world and of course on the mother of rallies the Dakar rally . First task was the fuel tanks ,we removed the plastic panels of the bike and nothing more .We didnt relocate anything as our project was a kit "friendly" with all the meaning of the word .As we had made a kit for the KTM 690 E now we was wiser and we had a big experience how to do a better one . We start modifing the KTM 690 E fuel tanks in order to fit on the 701 frame as is ,with all the parts of the frame on its original places .It was not an easy job ,we failed many times to make a proper fit fuel tanks . After all these fails we finally did it !!The fuel tanks had a great fit with the frame of the bike to be as is with no mods and relocations like " relocate the regulator " - " relocate the horn " - " cut the plastics " - " remove the airbox " etc . Standard exhaust remain on its original place ,no extra lower pipes needed . The seat fits on the standard brackets and on the frame not on the tanks or any other extra bracket . Fuel tanks can hold 13L on total ,comes with a Dakar tested KEIHIN fuel pump .The fuel tanks conection its really simple ,just link the rear tank on the front tanks and work with the Keihin pump or you can make it work with 2 fuel pumps and keep control of the fuel as you will have the option to choose which tanks will empty first ! -Tanks are made of multy layers Carbon Fiber ,epoxy resins and reinforced inside with vinylester .Vinylester is one of the best materials to protect the tanks of the acid fluids . -The brackets we made are billet aluminium made on a latest technology CNC machine. On the Husky 701 you will find 4 mounting points on the front main headstock ,these points.These points was the perfect place to fit a proper and biller bracket for the navi tower ! -Navigation tower we have made 2 options : 1.Mastech Navi tower This is the best navi tower out there ,extremely simple and compaq .With a lot of space inside to fit all the wiring harness proper and clean . It comes with a plate for all the standard indicators ,Δ button ,the standard speedo and lot of place to add your own GPS or your tablem .Optionaly can come with a Roadbook plate with OEM speedo place-indicators and 2 icos . It comes ready with all the bolts and spacers for Hella lights- KTM mask . Weight of the tower is 2.3Kg 2.PF Carbon fiber tower This option is great solution for anyone which asking a low weight tower ,it have all the benefits of the Mastech's tower .Its taller and in some cases require to extend your standard wiring harness .It comes with a plate for OEM Speedo-indicators and GPS and optionaly with a KTM OEM Rally Roadbook plate . Weight 910gr -For lights we use Hella lights ,as these lights are great for riding and are street legal all over the world! Hella is a top brand name on lighting solution and is used on many many auto moto companies and of course on KTM Dakar bikes ! -Skid plate (engine guard) ,this is a crucial part so we had to make something wich will keep strong on a big rock or even a crash but not so heavy.The best material for these job is the Carbon Fiber with aramid (Kevlar) reinforcement .A multi layers Carbon Fiber is the best way to protect the expensive engine of the bike and the fuel tanks with the also expensive Keihin fuel pump! -Side panels which hold the OEM KTM windshield and connect it with the fuel tanks are made of fiberglass .extremely strong and easy to mount .Made to mount on the Husky like the standard side panels ! -Seat ,we had to modify the seat in order to fit with the new tanks in front .New seat comes with Carbon Kevlar seat pan - comfortable foam and rally style cover with a pocket in the front .It fits like the OEM seat. On this build the main colors which Alejo (customer) asked was the black .. so we asked from our grafix designer to make the decals based on black color .The design he made was amazing and you can confirmed it on the pictures ! The last pieces of this great build was the rear side panels-the rear and front fender and the handguards ..We had to make something to be nice with the black theme .. What better of the black color from Carbon Fiber . In fact we build a complete Carbon fiber kit as all the parts of this bike are Carbon Fiber !! The bike was finally ready ,last task was the paper work and the flight to UAE from Greece but with some good faith everything solved and now Alejo enjoying his bike at the UAE deserts !! His feedback after a year of hard riding : "The kit.... I will recommend to everyone without doubt. It fits perfect on the bike, easy to install and easy to take it off for maintenance. Navi tower is also easy to work with, a lot of space for cables and everything there. Lights are good, definitely the kit is strong, I have had several falls some of them on hard rocks and some others on soft sand but fast and nothing but scratches."
What we can say for this amazing and very beautiful build ! Rafal had our lite kit on his KTM 690 and he decided to put our new kit ,the reasons were many: more fuel capacity,newer model ,clear screen with plenty of view when you ridding and many many other reasons. Rafal is an addicted to adventure rider ,with many travels on his bikes .Many Km's of ridding and adventures ..You can read all his stories on maptia
