Just took delivery of a new 690 and am now starting to think of places to put a toolkit, spare tube, pump and levers for any repairs when out.

I dont normally carry a backpack or waistpack (would be easier and cheaper) but I like the spares on the bike.

Was thinking of a Kriega 5L tail pack to go on the back (maybe with the new Kriega rack loops and cam straps which look like they allow anything from a 5l to 20l drypack to be attached) Anyone else done this and does it fit with the grab handles in place? (need to fit the grab handles as they dont come pre-installed for some reason?)

Also looking at a GL Coyote for weekend and longer trips if needed.

Also interested if anyone know if the tank bolts on the 2012 model need replacing or have KTM learned a lesson from previous failures and made these things stronger?

Replacement of an old brake pedal (765.13.050.000)
on a new pedal with ball-bearings (765.13.050.200)
on model till 2010 incl.

Or
76513050044 FOOT BR. LVR + STEP PLATE and 7651305014401S FOOT BR. LEVER + STEP PLATE
to
7651305024401 FOOT BRAKE LEVER CPL. 11

For installation of the new pedal it is necessary to make a special axis,
it has 2 threads, the left M10x1.5 and the right M8X1.25:



Still 1-2 nuts and one washer of M8 are necessary.
It is necessary to install the thread of M10X1.5 on strong Locktite (red).

I've found the Kriega US 20 the most useful size. I also, have the 10L that stack nicely on top of the 20. While I carried this on the XR650R on a ProMoto Billet rack, for the 690 I would consider either:

http://www.bboffroad.com.au/ktm__6902.htm or,

http://shop.sw-motech.com/cgi-bin/cosmoshop/lshop.cgi?action=showdetail&wkid=133994700617625&ls=en&nc=1339947070-18526&rubnum=products.1252674507.1256051975.1256052012&artnum=GPT.04.439.100/B&id=95&gesamt_zeilen=50Tshowrub--products.1252674507.1256051975.1256052012&typid=66724540

I'd probably use the Kriega for short trips and Giant Loop for campout/longer trips.

Can't decide between the SW-Motech or the bboffroad- sombody help me out here................

I had the SW Motech rack and will vouch for its durability. It's also versatile with many adapters and plates for mounting luggage or strapping on bags. Also looks easier than the other rack to get a grip on for yanking the bike around.

Used the SW Motech for about 4 years now. Love it. Still haven't seen another I would rather use in its place...

Rugged, durable and does its job.

Like the look of the SW Mototech ones but thinking of going this route with Kriega

http://www.adventure-spec.com/defaul...-hardware.html

Looks pretty secure for day rides when I only need to carry tools, although the Mototech one looks like it would allow a few more options.

Eventually you may want moe options than that Kriega system affords. Looks simple till you need to gas up. And where are the grab handles? Can they be used with that setup? Handles are important.

Other than that looks like a simple, light setup. Depends on your needs.

I've just purchased a US-5 and US-20 to use with my SW Motech. I've used the incorporated grab handles on the rack on many occasions and they also provide another, further forward lashing location for bags and other gear (I also use a Giant Loop Great Basin for longer trips).

One of the best things about this rack for me is that it is narrow. I trail ride and push it while riding. When I fall, the leading edge of the rack doesn't dig into the ground and rip off or get damaged because it is inside the lines of the bike. It also isn't putting any strain on the embedded fasteners of the gas tank during a fall. If you loop out low side, the back rear corner of the rack would be one of the first things to contact the ground. This would cause a pulling force on the rack/inserts. It doesn't happen with the SW Motech again because it is inside the lines of the bike.

Just my .02

Yes. Barman and Uller nail it. One of the things useful about a dedicated rack under the Kriega is being able to mount one of the Rotopax 1or2 gal on top when you need to haul gas to a mate in need. I fabbed an aluminum plate that was a quick bolt on to the ProMoto rack that I had on the XR for the Rotopax. It was a great accessory to have. Not permanent. Quick on and off. I had a couple different tail bags but they never got used once I got the Kriegas. A quality product.

Uller, yes good points, i do lots of falling so it's important things dont get compromised. I also like the built in grab handles.

Dont suppose you have any pics of the us 5 mounted? also the us20 and the giant loop?

I just ordered the Kriega bags. Haven't used them yet. Excited to though.....

Pics of Giant Loop, Waterproof Duffel with Tent and camp chair, and waterproof stuff sack with sleeping bag all on top of the SW Motech Rack are in the rack thread. I run some cam buckle webing straps for rafting under the motech rack in a cross pattern over the tent and bag. Works very well. No missing items ever and no shifting even in bad whoops.

Is the top or bottom bolts more prone to breakage? I thought it was just the top ones?

KTM rear rack

Happy Trail is making a rear carrier plate that is a dual layer with the top layer that will tilt to provide easy access to the fuel fill. It will bolt to the 4 bolts on the tank along with their aluminum box carrier brackets. Looks pretty nice. Have one on order but not recevied yet.
