Subjectively, and from memory - I think they weigh about the same. Certainly not a problem.
My friend is comitted to making the MM panniers work on the 690 whatever happens with the MM frame and has already ordered a frame and panniers for his GS1200 thus enabling him to have the same system on both bikes (shared panniers obviously). We collect them on 11 Oct which is when we go down to drop my bike off so I'll try to post some comparison pics then. In addition to the Zegas I've also got a set of Al Jesses in the shed for my GS Dakar so I could do a direct 3 way! I may well put a MM frame on the Dakar too and get rid of the Jesses if anyone is interested. They are great panniers - but sadly cannot easily be made to fit the KTM as they are shaped around the BM exhaust.

I guess you can use either panniers for this.
You can use them for a center stand? I was trying to use my pelicans (picture a few posts back) to change my tire but it just wasn't quite tall enough and the handles got in the way.

You don't think they'd get crushed?

Not tried it myself. Like I said just guessing. The MM looks like its strong enough to me. The TT doesn't look like it's strong enough but I've heard other travellers say they use it in this manner. Another one to try out.

Was asked to see if our system would bolt onto 690e, the 2 that came to our shop in Bend were gone within hours so we'd never seen one until yesterday. Northwest KTM of Gresham's Chris allowed us to inspect and test fit. We positioned the bag to allow fueling access, just enough to get the key into the lid and open the fuel cell. Right hand side requires 2 smooth head t nuts and hd urethane patch on cell to bombproof that connection. When he installs the Leo, it probably will not require a heat shield but in the meantime, a small mod of our existing stainless steel unit will prevent any melting. That can is huge!



Heat shield will bend to conform the stock header and still be double walled. (Not shown as I didn't want to risk scratching this brand new machine).

What is that Wachs? It looks pretty cool!

Is that a generic bag or made for the 690 enduro?

Do you have any pics of how it mounts?

We didn't actually mount the unit on his machine, just wanted to see if it'd work. Check it out: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=380264

It bolts tight to the plastic with 1" fender washers on both sides of a brass grommet in the bag.

Wachs - do you need to drill holes in the fender to hold the bag on? How big?

KTM rear racks back in stock

It looks like another batch of the rear luggage racks has arrived in the US; Cycle Hutt just shipped mine yesterday. I've had my order in for about seven weeks, so I'll be happy to finally get it! I'm really, really hoping that the tubing will work with my Ortlieb clip-ons...

Dropped my bike off with Mr Mule today for the frame develpoment. As the Adventure is now a long way off, he is a lot more enthused about the project, and is going to have a good look at producing other bits like bash plate, top box and rack, and guards for things like rads. Even (gasp) a fairing.
Watch this space.

That's awesome!!

Let him know at least 1 more guy is very interested! I'd certainly buy a top box carrier/box if done right.

And I am still very interested. Any idea when he would have a rack ready for the 690? Are we talking weeks, 2 months, 6 months etc?

Hi all,
He said he would have my bike for 4-5 weeks so it will be 2-3 months I guess before you could get something made and shipped out..but I'm just guessing. Whatever he does it will be good.

I will let him have all the details off this site next week. So any more input post it here. I will also try to get some idea of production timescales out of him then.

I think it would be a good idea to email or call Paul directly if you are desparate and he can give you a better indication. If you do it directly through his site, there is less chance of a message being rejected as SPAM (he said he gets 2000 SPAMs a day!!)
