By the way, this happen to other fellows on ADVRider ...



My problems originate from my physical characteristics. I have only 26" inseem. 5'-4". Still, I'm well above 200 lbs. Varies from 210 to 230. I'm also a little wide ... First, that forced me to "thicken" my boots' sole by 30 mm. It does affect significantly my position with the handle bar. I need my bars much higher enad closer to me.

I actualy already have 30 mm of risers. I need a minimum of 50 mm more. I wonder what will happen with the clutch hose ..

I'm 6'4", I definitely feel the difference between my moto boots, and work boots when riding, as far as my reach to the bars when standing.

You may find that these help too. I have the MK2's, they lower the pegs 10mm, and move them back 5mm? when you swap sides, or in the stock location when installed normally. Nice product, and Marty at Brap Offroad is great to deal with. http://www.brapoffroad.com/mk3-produ...-mark-3-19mk3/


***EDIT: I just re read your post, and realized that you had to thicken your boots to clear the seat when riding.***

Seth, do you have a part # for this?

As far as the Uni Filter folks are talking about, is this the one? http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/1...gh-performance

Does this fit with the stock snorkel intake?

This is the one you want. Uni Twin http://www.ktmtwins.com/ktm-690-part...smc-air-filter Fits in the stock location with no mods.
Seth says it can be sourced from Parts Unlimited for $40 though.

Looks like what I am running. I got mine from my dealer, and it is Orange instead of green. No more dusting of the air box.

That's the KTM filter. Expensive but it's orange.

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

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:
