Does it actually requires a rally style exhaust to fit the Evo 2 tanks? I thought it was actually designed to clear the exhaust?

Jeepers Aaron - You sure found some new love for your 690! I didn't think you liked that bike? I'll get a chance to see it in MX and can hardly wait. I'm driving the truck this year.

No the Evo 2 was built to work with the stock exhaust

It's amazing what will happen when you can actually ride a bike without having it die randomly. 63 hp at the wheel as opposed to 62 at the crank helps, along with the extra 12ft/lbs I plan on having 8 gallons on board for MX this year, I'll be running the 170 mile stage wihout stopping for fuel The 690 is the perfect bike for the MX1k, longer chassis, big power and lots of fuel.

Time for your morning coffee, eh?

Stock 690 tank is already black, the 450 RR tank is bigger and shaped differently, and both have the same cutout (690 has a pump and 450 a plate with a barb there).
