Geeeze, I wish I could buy one for that much. I will be lucky to get one for $12500 OTD, and KTM still won't allow import of their bikes newer than 2007 from any other country into Canada. Jerks.
Good luck with your sale.

Can't afford to keep both so I'm selling the KTM 690 and gonna get a used beater dirt bike that I'm not affraid to drop for my trail riding. The 690's an awesome bike... just doesn't fit the role that I need as well as the F800GS does.

Figured I'd take advantage of the cavity left behind from the stock air box, as well as hopefully controlling some of the heat that reaches the filter...







Placed some heat reflective material on the lower side...

and added a dry box...

I have never been afraid to drop my 690...I usually don't have a chance to discuss the matter when it happens

Any idea how to mount my Motorrad IV GPS to my 690? I have a sub-mount and Scott's damper.

Thank you.

How about ram mounts.
Here's my setup on my 525. I did exactly the same thing on my 690.

I need something that will hold both a cradle and GPS unit. It's bigger than what you have. I'd like it to mount over the sub-mount.

After watching JoefromSF's crash video, it sticks in my mind the posts about mounting the spot on the bike. - just saying. Nice setup though.

A similar comment comes up every single time I post that pic. We each have our own different implementations of SPOT. Thank you for your concern.

Damn, had a slow washout in a muddy rut and went down.

The tab to mount the plastic shroud punched a hole right in the radiator. Glad I made it home.

Ram ball on the back of the cradle, and a U bolt ram mount with a ball on the bars will work just fine. I've mounted my Zumo 550 that way for 10's of thousands of miles. The bonus is you don't need anal lube for the parts like you do with that Touratech crap.

Known issue, you should spend some time reading the 690 Wiki, may save you some more headaches down the road.

Any of you guys have some good videos of a 690 doing some technical trails?

I'm waffling between a 500 EXC and a 690 but THIS is sort of the riding I am thinking of and am wondering how the bigger 690 handles the rough stuff. I've looked around on youtube a bit, but most of the 690 vids seem to be on dirt roads and the like...


THANKS!
