Dealer let me have it at his cost, when I told him about the dusting from the stock one.

I'm running the Uni. Is there a dual stage filter that fits in the stock location? ..like the twinair with course and fine foam?

Its time for your suggestions. I wish to raise it around 4 inches. What are your recommendations. Recommendation for hydraulic hoses as well. I already routed he throttle cable under he handle bar.

I have already eliminated Rox and Toratech risers.

I haven't seen any that tall yet...You may have to change the bars?

Maybe this would work?
High bars

I'm not quite understanding what the benefits of going so tall are, at 6'5" with 30mm rise I think my bars might be a little too high for aggressive offroad riding... comfy on the road though. I haven't searched through the entire product line yet, but the powermadd riser blocks come in sizes from 2"-10". http://www.powermadd.com/products/pivotriserblocks.html They are meant for snowmobiles, but there has got to be a part number that has the right bolt pattern for the 690.

Thanks for the info on the air filters guys.

I'm running a 2.5" riser from Highway Dirtbikes and am loving it, for what that's worth. I'm not sure I've ever seen a 4" rise on a dirt bike.

Yep thats the one. You can pay $100 for the orange one with KTM written on it, or $80 for the green one with Twin Air printed on it, or $40 for a black one with nothing printed on it. Seeing as to how it resides in the airbox any printing or color is pretty much arbitrary...other than gaging cleanliness. I had 2 in australia....my mechanic cleaned one and oiled it and we swapped them out depending on dust intake for the day...worked well.

I was getting the parts unlimited units for about cost...was around $20 as I recall. Not now..but it was a good deal

I recommend the RC high bend bars combined with a 2.5 inch riser. I have the meca riser with the RC high bend bars and it works well for me. I have a 34" inseam and am 6'3" tall but have short arms. Here is a picture of me:

For tall bars, I love the Pro Taper Pastrana FMX bend; they are very tall.

It's working great.
Galfer P/N DF782FLW I found it for $200 at MX Megastore. That's about as cheap as I've seen, maybe someone can point us to a cheaper source.
It's thicker than OEM by .5mm which is 4.5mm.

Here's the link for the rotor at KTM Twins for some more fitment info. http://www.ktmtwins.com/galfer-ktm-6...ear-wave-rotor

4000 miles on it so far with stock pads.
Thickness new 5mm, 4.5mm minimum.

Just back from Albania Rally 2012 on my almost stock 690 Enduro R. It was the toughest thing I have ever done, days of more tan 12hrs with only 4hrs of sleep. The 690 performed flawlessly, not missing a single beat. I am preparing a report with video footage so keep an eye on it.

Looking forward to reading your report! I was hoping to do this event but decided to do the MX1K instead. Great pics!
