Hi Mark. what do you think about the Aurora kit? is it well built? are the materials valid? I'm also thinking of buying one

Forgot the before and after.
Not sure what the result will be, Im just hoping to replicate the air flow I had stock which Ive never had a problem with.

The quality is very good but as you can see from my build, there is a lot of additional work and things to make when using on a late model 990.
The 950 makes for a much simpler install.

Went for a little 100 k ride to test out the baffle.

Image

Baffle is a huge improvement, think I can live with it like that for a while, although I have no clue what to do next to improve it more.

A few more bits and pieces getting done...

Voltmeter using a surface mount pod and while I was at it some genuine KTM heated grips just in time for autumn and winter

Modified the the satnav mount part of the tower with an angled mount I made with a 3D printer.
The angle was too horizontal which is fine if your always standing but sitting was near useless.

Image

Brought the GPS a little more vertical.
A few degrees, makes a big difference!

Image

Just for my own amusement, the clamp plate :lol:

Not happy with the angle of the speedo cluster.
This is the current cockpit layout and view.
Im going to try and lower the ignition key and that will free up space to lower and re-angle the speedo.
Will do for now while I come up with something else.

My OCD got the better of me and had me thinking all night about the speedo cluster...

So I redrilled and remounted part of the top plate and relocated the ignition key a little lower

Image

Image

The ignition switch has plenty of room to move forward into the tower but a new section needs to be made so Ill do with what I have for now

Image

Image

This is the view now, the detail at the bottom is, for the most part, readable sitting and still plenty of clearance for everything

Image

I will have to address the ignition switch, maybe Dimitri may change it in a later iteration?

Was a nice day for a little ride.
Tested out a few more mods and see how my hand and arm are going to cope

Image

Few things I want to change.
The voltmeter is useless in sunlight and the suspension needs a bit of plushing up on the low speed.
