    I’ve made a few modifications to the new Adv/SE relocaters; on the original design, the fixing holes were within 0.5 mm I wanted it to be 0.2mm but my tool maker engineer master said tolerance is tolerance, stick with 0.5mm to start with, now the plates have been fitted to numerous SE’s and Adv’s with good results and feedback I’ve elected to revert back to a 0.2mm tolerance. Basically this means the plates sit tighter on the supporting bolts, I now know that the dimensions and KTM’s accuracy is consistent and universal.

    Also the new Adv plates made from 8mm thick steel alloy compared to 6mm, the SE plates are still 6mm, as on my own bike. Two reasons for this, the extra material removed from the plate to accommodate the Adv, BD, G-IT sump guards, it’s going to make the side stand relocater more ridged and stronger. And also to accommodate modifications guys have made for the early 03-04 frames, (KTM Forum UK). It’s now comparable to KTM’s 8mm side strand bracket plate, meaning a point of give is more even and equal.

    Trying to keep an objective view, but I think this is the best solution available without welding to the frame. I’m really happy with the results and outcome of these relocaters; it has taken an incredible amount of effort to get the measurements precise, we are talking a 10th of a mm here, thank you Mike and ACP.

    Still £45 plus P&P. If you need the stainless steel spacer please add £5.

    Bloody typical!
    I have not got round to fitting mine yet and you have done an upgrade.
    Are the hole diameters smaller? Do you have to drill out the powdercoat as its such a good fit?

    Kevin, it’s just a tiny upgrade the holes are 0.3mm tighter, bolts are always 0.1-0.2mm smaller than the fixing point. To answer the question about the powder coating, no. There has to be enough room for the powder coating and bolts, we are talking 0.3mm, less than a human hair each side. The plate is 8mm compared to 6mm on yours, I thought about 8mm and considered it to be over kill, Steel is on average 3x stronger than Aluminium, but due to mods made by Frog and Zedtours I think it’s a better solution rather than making 3 different types, SE, 03 Adv and 05 Adv.

    Fit your relocater and all will become apparent, once bolted up it's going nowhere, the five fixing points compared to others, forms two ridged triangles, mine is still 6mm and holes the same as yours, will I swop mine.....No Need..... No Point.

    Anyone fitted one of these with a rugged roads sump guard ? will purchase one if i thought it was a straight fit, not too sure if i have to cut etc as the sump guard gives the sidestand a bit of extra protection anyway.
    would value any thoughts.
    Also the stainless spacer, is this also recommended ? if so why , what effect does this have
    (apart from the obvious corrosion side of things )

    Desmo, if you can fit/manipulate a 2mm washer between the rear sump guard mounting point on one side it will fit, as it’s designed to accommodate the standard KTM sump guard, I designed the relocater so the option of removing the machined area which could be done relatively easily if needed, so far it’s on bikes with the G-IT and BD sump guards with no mods.
    You only need the stainless steel spacer if you don’t have a centre stand, though others have replaced the KTM spacers for mine irrespective.
