Could somebody with a 2009 or 2010 R please give me a length in mm on the sidestand? The PO apparently cut or replaced this one when he lowered the bike. I'll be raising it back up to full height. 2008 & 2012 shows 295 mm. I expect 09 & 10 would be longer some. The microfiche don't show for the 09.
I might do an adjustable style like I did on the 950.

I pretty much copied this design.


From this thread. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=560956

I personally used smaller bolt/nuts and a big round washer for a big foot. I also ground off the bolt head at an angle.

It should be 306 mm on the R model. Regular Enduro (and 2012 Enduro R) has a 295 mm one and SMC R 275 mm.

Ahhh so they've added to it so you can break the beads and remove the tires as well. Really nice looking stuff, but damn it's expensive!

I have used a rig similar to the one above but with one bead breaker....very handy for changing mousse.

Has anybody got experience will running smaller rear tires (knobbie) on the 690?
I don't want to get into a tire brand discussion, just a size question.
The tires I run on my 525 are 120/100-18. The next size is the 140/80-18. I was thinking if I dropped down to the 120 I might just be able to keep the lowering link installed and not hit the tank.
Thoughts?


Another thought- I haven't noticed any posts or threads about drilling the drain holes in the 690 swing arm. Isn't this an issue with them as with the rest of the KTM line?

I have a 130/80-18 on the rear right now. I prefer the big ol' 140/80. You need to get that power to the ground!

I'm not familiar with the swing arm problem you talk about.. they fill with water?

I ran the Kenda trakmaster II on the rear in a 120/100-18 for a little over 1000 miles without any issue. The tire worked fine, no rim issues, no abnormal wear issues and I was on dirt and pavement. In the woods the narrower tired hooked up almost as well as a trials tire...it was very impressive. I also have run a trials tire on the rear with no issue.

Tars...

130/80 vs 130/100.....the first number is the width of the tire and the second is the height relative to the width is what I think these numbers represent....if this is true....the "100" would be a taller sidewall.....

n'est pas?


And , yes, the EXC swingarms can take in water and it is a good idea to drill a 1/8 hole in the bottom of each swing arm a few inches from the back end....and check the holes occasionally as they can get plugged.

I currently have 3 rear wheels and really only need 2. I have a wide and a narrow. The wide is an adapted 640 wheel as my stock rear rim got trashed through normal riding. The stock rear hub was superlaced with an excel rim. I also have a new Rad rear wheel..both the rad and the stock/excel are unused and i would like to sell one. I will put an ad up in the flea market in the next day or two but figured i would post a heads up here. Both of the Excel wheels are 1.85 wide iirc...good for offroad tires...not so good for fitting rally mousse

I am trying to scratch some cash together to aid in a house down payment
