which gets a molded spacer and new mount. The radiators receive new catches, basically the same rubber piece
that holds up the sidestand on a KTM. The new mount is
simple and works well. You have to disconnect the subframe, unhook the airboot from the throttle body and then
follow the directions. The 2Tall folks told us that they would

When you sit on the 2Tall-kitted KTM, it feels identical to

it was the first time in years that the layout and feel of a

and arms hamper the taller rider.
Just a tick less knee flex with the 2Tall kit, more arm flex and
a more forward head showcase the additional space.
