There are a few 650TR owners who are in touch with each other and the numbers are growing, we have had 2 ride outs and another to the Raven Cafe coming up in November, I have done 5000 on mine since April without any problems except for me dropping it and then the Continental Tyre has squared off, Type specialist recommends replacing the Road Attack 2 with the Road Attack 2 EVO

Spare parts to replace those damage after the drop i.e. The Mirror cover and the crash bar cover £19.99 each + VAT ready painted, Pannier cover £49.95 + VAT ready Painted.

I have replaced a lot of the bolts with Stainless steal ones if I have to remove them, such as Tank bolts, Seat lock, fairing mounting Bolts, and you do need to have a few replace clips for the self tapping screws if you remove the fairing

Hi Fred, are you still up for the ride to the Raven in November with linuxyeti, and we will probably have a rider from Liverpool joining us.

Might join if 'this outsider' can come? Date/time? Is this a WK jobbie or whatever bike on the day?

Might be 3 WK 650TR's, if the guy from Liverpool joins us as he said he would, I will meet up with him in Chester as for the weather I have just done the Ride to wall in 12 Hrs of pouring rain, the TR did have 1 minor fault for around 5 minutes on way back, the main beam cam on in a torrential downpour, so I will be there even if on my own.

Are we throwing the meet up open to anyone who wants to join us anybody who does can then see how good the TR's really are built in a KTM owned factory.

My TR gets quite a lot of interest and people do acknowledge me now, one guy went the next day and bought one after seeing mine, but I have never seen him since, if I should come across him will invite him to meet
