+1 to KTM World- Good prices and in my experience the parts availability for KTM oem parts is excellent. And they sell a lot of 690's locally, so they seem to be know what to keep on hand.

+1 to KTM world as well
Parts in stock, decent pricing, knowledgable and prompt shipping.

Or buy a supermoto kickstand from someone?

The weld was very neat, after grinding, and if you looked for it you would be hard pressed to find it. Appears to be plenty strong and solved the problem. Clearly takes you of of service for a bit unless you can do this yourself, as some here can.
I want to find a spare to cut down in case I want to put the bike back to stock. I like it being lowered but the rear tire has touched the tank a few times with the sag set to 110mm. Thanks for the supermoto tip.

Wish I could say the same for my 2010 Husky TE250... Seven weeks without parts. Never a Husky again.

Though the parts list, list the side stand for the SMC as the same length as for the Enduro, it does have a different part number and is about 1"+ shorter. So order up the stand from the SMC and it should fit the bill

I installed a 1 inch Kouba link on my 2012. I had a half inch cut from the stand. I probably should have taken 3/4 inch, but it works well enough. Maybe cut yours and keep looking for a new one just in case you want it back stock.

I pulled everything apart this evening and it seemed to pump just fine. Put it back in the tank and nothing..... Did you guys shorten the hose that was provided with the ca-cycleworks pump?

Riders,
Me too......I wanna know as I think my linkage is what is squeaking.....

I like Huskies, but those orphans are hard to keep in clothes

I'd put money on it! It was the squeaking that was driving me nuts that prompted me to perform the initial inspection... a couple shots of penetrating oil down there quieted things down for a couple days but the loose bearings remain! With my bike on the stand, I can lift the back wheel up more than 1/2" before the shock starts to move.

Well, the fourth time was the charm..... Pulled it apart and cut about 3 inches off the hose provided by ca-cycleworks. Put it back together and immediately had fuel. reconnected everything and it fired up. I'm on call this weekend so I don't know if I'll get to take it for a ride or not but I'm excited to give it a try with the new pump.
