      It has become very hard to find an atk speedo, although I just got one off ebay after watching for a year. I just saw the exact same speedometer on a Yamaha XT550. I looked on eBay, and there are several Yamaha xt speedometers, some new. So in all,  atk speedometer is also a Yamaha speedometer for those of us looking and unaware of the part crossover.

      For those who may be still playing around with street legal XRs and looking for a Speedo, the Atk Speedometer has been thrown around as being a good option. It has become very hard to find one, although I just got one off ebay after watching for a year. I just saw the exact same speedometer on a Yamaha XT550. I looked on eBay, and there are several Yamaha xt speedometers, some new for sale. So in all. "the" atk speedometer is also a Yamaha speedometer.

      Hi all, first of all I'm new here and I thank you all in advance for your time and any advice you may have to offer me. heres the deal- I recently purchased a 2013 KTM duke 690. love the bike, not a thing wrong with it, BUT- originally was looking for something a little more towards the supermoto end of the spectrum and something I that could put knobbies on and go offroad every now and then. Was also looking real hard at a drz400sm but I settled on the duke because I got a good deal on it and I love the look and the ride and im about 85/15 street/dirt so it made sense for me to go with something more street oriented rather than sacrifice the power that I would need on the highway. Now im entertaining a trade offer- a 2007 bmw xmoto g650. The bmw has 9000 miles and has been well kept and maintained. My duke has 5000 miles. obviously the KTM is worth more, but it should be noted that the KTM does have a rebuilt title which affects the value- although the bike is in perfect shape. The bmw has a clean title. I'm curious to hear from anyone who has experience with both bikes what the pros and cons of each would be in your opinion. I have only been riding for less than two years, started on a yamaha 350 dual sport and have not riden much besides that and my KTM so I am still figuring out what my preferences are. I know this is a question of personal preference but I'd like to hear opinions from folks with more experience riding than I have. Factors I'm looking at are the ride and feel, performance, maintenance, reliability, and anything else you can think of. top speed is not an issue, 105 on the BMW is more than enough for me. as far as look goes, I honestly prefer the look of the bmw (don't hang me for saying that, orange just isn't my color)  I'm supposed to go check out the BMW tomorrow. attatched a pic of the actual bike im thinking of trading for. Thanks in advance to anyone whos got an opinion/advice for me.

      Made a motovlog about pushing oneself beyond our comfort zones... even had a slight mishap near the end.  Hope you enjoy.
