Here man have you ever ordered ktm power play parts?
Do they import the stuff or should i just import it myself?

You get it at most dealers here for pretty close to what import would cost. I havent added any bits to her yet, race prep is kinda the focus on my V4

I emailed TRAX MOTO, any other reliable ktm service center you can recommend for me to contact, I'm trying to get a race visor for my RC

They ship from Austria if it's not in stock here. They have a weekly shipment coming in. So anything on the catalogue takes a week to two weeks to get to your local KTM.

Much cheaper to go to your local KTM for power parts than importing it yourself. KTM power parts are expensive though.

But you can also consider banggood/ali express for some bling bling bits.

Well, 2 years ago I bought my dream bike… I never figured I would end up going full track weapon with it… or racing it. This weekend I am racing her in my second ever proper race, sharing the battle of the twins, or BOTTS class grid with ex BSB and redbull rookies race winners.

That is one sexy piece of machinery.

Got my S1000R back today from it's annual service and finally decided to spray the replacement fairings and tank.

Coincidently, it is exactly one year today since I looped it. Here she is, in all her glory; (sans bar end mirrors)

How is it driving without a windshield on a monster of that caliber?

Hay everybody.
Need some help with finding a helmet to fit my big head.

Seems I have a round head shape, yes it's that she said and have basically only been able to fit a Caberg Xtrace and a HJC i90.
While I like the latter I would prefer a full face and the Xtrace isn't exactly a road helmet, it will work if I remove the peak.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If all else fails there's options.

I had the same issue, I managed to find a shoei gt air on special that fit quite well.
It's a bit more expensive than some would pay, but it's a very nice helmet.

I did find a Shoei XSpirit 2 at Rivonia in their clearance store that fitted but that helmet was probably 3 years old already and had a shitty livery.

I am afraid if I want to get something that I can use on the track its gonna cost more than I want to spend.

Thanks for the heads up.
