Just throwing this out there, the part manuals for each year have an asterisk by any parts that have changed year over year. I don't know if they've kept up the practice lately but it's easy to compare.

They do.

It's just a little funny seeing that the "asterisked" 2012 front headlight mask or the sidestand are '08 items...

Good move there Noah, could save you some trouble down the long road ahead.

Did you wire both + and - cables to the battery?

IRRC Fishfund had some troubles with the connectors breaking off, so make sure that the mounting is solid.

I only mounted the + cable to the battery right now. The - cable goes to the frame right below the R/R

That should be fine, but if you want to wire it in the most reliable way now that you still have the time, tools and materials at home (I think?), I would run two straight cables with no splices (12 gauge should be fine), from the connector on the R/R on one end, directly to the battery poles on the other end.

This way you eliminate a couple of failure points due to a bad ground, a solder joint breaking, etc.

I'm in Canada now on my way to Toronto. I'll have to remember to do this on my next service.

Hi Guys,

Just following up. Bullet Proof Designs now has the programs finished and is ready to start taking orders for the KTM 690 Swingarm Guard.

http://shop.bulletproofdesigns.com/product.sc?productId=114&categoryId=30

This is using our latest design. It takes more time and additional set up's but the finished product is awesome!

The price for this guard is a little higher to account for the new design but it's still pretty cheap compared to a swingarm!

Orders will start shipping Thursday 8/8/2012.

Thanks,
Nate Scott

I told you we were trying to get a bike in the shop so we could determine if we can build the guard for the 690. My local shop just confrimed I can pick up the 690 Enduro on Wednesday. Once we get some measurments I will let you guys know if we can start taking orders.

Thanks,

Thanks Nate! This new design looks awesome. Artwork in metal for the 690.....
I really like how it now protects the fasteners too as that is how my tabs broke. Rock caught on the edge of the bolt and ripped it through the stock tab.....

New 690 Design:




Older Design:



Order Placed.

I've been trying to keep mine stock, but that is a nice bit of kit for $75. I'll think on it.
