Camel ADV 790ADV Neck Brace

The KTM 790 ADV has been a solid performer since it's launch in early 2019. There's tons of cool new tech on the bike that hasn't been seen on an ADV bike from the Austrian brand before. Unfortunately, the designers decided to stick with the weak, problematic headlight/gauge cluster mounting set-up that was used on the 1090/1190/1290 line.

Everything ahead of the steering stem hangs off of four tiny metal posts that are welded to the bike's head tube. It appears that the lower support bars the designers added to the 790 have done little to beef up the mounting points. The 790's headlight set-up is quite heavy. Add to that the gauge cluster, windscreen, lower wind deflectors, signal lights etc and you have a lot of weight hanging off these weak mounting points.

Over rough terrain, these posts see a lot of stress and eventually snap off. This is a problem for several reasons. Obviously, the broken posts need to be welded back on to the frame leading to some less than ideal backwoods repair jobs (see welding pic below). Another issue is the bike's immobilizer system resides under the headlight. When the headlight assembly snaps off, the wires of the immobilizer can be damaged, leaving you with a broken mount and a dead bike.

The Camel ADV 790 Neck Brace supports the four troublesome mounting posts by tying them together and attaching to a mounting tab behind the bike's head tube. This keeps the posts from flexing and breaking off.

The 790 Neck Brace is made from 11ga 304 Stainless Steel that's been powder-coated* for a great look and excellent durability. Its minimalist design provides all the strength you need while keeping the weight as low as possible. Installation takes only a few minutes.

Hell's Gate Moab - 700 Tenere

Hell's Gate is an optional obstacle on the Hell's Revenge trail in the Sand Flats Recreation Area. This alternate section is a steep, V notch with multiple ledges and if you're really lucky, the rock is covered in sand too!

We rode this track during the Dirt Circus ride in March 2022. My friend Charles was there on his KTM 500EXC and Overkill Andy of Heavy Enduro fame was there on his Yamaha T7 as well.

2022 Desert 100 Race - Yamaha 700 Tenere

After two years of COVID cancelations, the Stumpjumper's Desert 100 was a go! 2022 was the 50th anniversary of this iconic race and it had a record turn out.

This was our 8th time racing in the ADV class. The course is a grind, not particularly difficult but it is relentless. The track is covered in baby head rocks, silt, sand and whoops. There is no opportunity to sit and cruise along, it give you no chance to rest. The DNF rate is 30-50%. 2022 was the dustiest event I've ever been to. The first couple miles had people cruising along in first gear until the dust cloud started to let up.

T7 Camel Tank Install

Since the 700 Tenere was officially announced in late 2017, it’s created quite a stir in the adventure bike community. Boasting a great list of features and specs this bike seems ready to conquer the ADV world! However, as the saying goes, “When you’re exploring, you can never have too much water unless you’re drowning or enough gas unless you’re on fire!”.

We can’t help you with the water but we definitely can with the fuel. Placed on the left side of the bike, opposite of the exhaust will sit your Camel Tank. Occupying otherwise unused space, the tank adds 5 Litres (1.3 gal) of extra fuel to your capacity for a total of 21 litres. That's an additional 80-120 km (50-75miles) of extra fun before you need to start looking for a fuel station!

Like the rest of the Camel Tank line, the CT-T7 is roto-molded (no seams to leak or split) from extremely durable XLPE plastic. Our brass inserts won't wear out or cross thread so you can be sure your tank will last the life of your bike! All the Camel Tank kits come with an anodized, CNC machined, billet aluminum fuel cap.

Compatible with the following panniers systems:

-OEM Yamaha pannier racks

-SW Motech Pro

-Outback Motorteck symmetrical (we have not tried the asymmetrical yet)

-Adventure Spec soft bag racks (require 10mm spacers and longer bolts)

*List will grow as we confirm fit with more pannier systems.

Features:

-Holds 5 litres/1.3 gallons

-Fuel is automatically transferred from the auxiliary tank to the main tank
