White low fender for new KTM 690?

Hi, I have a 14MY KTM 690 Enduro. Most of the plastics are white.
I would very much like a low fender, but the ones on rally-raid are orange or black only.

Is it possible to get a white low fender from a different model, that will fit with someones low fender mounting brackets?

I guess I could get the orange fender and drop the white rally raid decals on it, anyone got another option?

PS, if I were to get a cheaper low fender, possibly second hand and paint it, exactly what model should I buy it from? (needs to be able to take the ABS etc)


Thanks - Geoff.

I made my own brackets out of aluminium flat bar - just took a bit of head scratching and about $10.00 in materials.

Those low fenders are going to be a disaster if you do any mud riding. They will pack up and make the bike uncontrollable just before you crash.

Yup.

Source yourself an OEM white front fender from one of the SMC models.

If it's front head shake/shimmy you're trying to rid yourself of, loose that sail of a stock 690 Enduro. I did and bada bing-the front end settled down in a very noticable way.

Sorry, but I am confused by your comment "loose that sail of a stock 690 Enduro". Are you referring to the stock 690 R front fender, or another piece of the 690 R bodywork?

All low fender conversion kits are made to work with the 640/950 low fenders, these are slightly different than the 990 fender. The spacing on the front bolts is different, and the attachment of the rear ones. The 990 also doesn't have any attachment possibilities for the brake line.

I'd say paint a 950 one or make your own brackets if you are savvy and don't mind spending half a day or more in the garage.

As you tool down the interstate at 60 to 80mph, take a look over the handlebars at the portion of the front fender furthest away from you-the leading end of the fender-it's bouncing all over hells half acre isn't it?. The fender flare at the last 6 to 9" from the end makes it pretty flexible and allows it to bounce around and deflect side to side which gets transferred up to the handlebars.

The SMC front fender is a slight bit shorter, stiffer, and it doesn't have that flare at the end of the fender. Plus if you catch a sale like Munn has going on right now, you can pick one up shipped to your door for less than $30.
