Would you mind posting pics of how you cut them?

thank you

Sorry, I cut the OEM plastic guard, not the replacement accessory bit.

Thanks for the picture, Christophe.

I called Touratech USA to place an order. I was told those guards will not fit the 2012...bummer.

Barkbusters are excellent design and quality.

I use the VPS model on the 690, and Egos on other dirt bikes.

Maybe I am just dense, but I can't seem to figure it out. Sitting here with a brand new 2012 (managed to find a dealer with a leftover) and I cant seem to figure out how to install the license plate (If I can't figure out the plate, I cant wait to tackle FI issues and valve adjustment )

I know it sounds dumb, but I can only see drilling new holes in the plate to line up with the fender holes that are already there. Is this how everyone else is installing plates on factory tails? Or am I missing something?

Sounds like the dealer didn't provide the backing to mount your plate. Stock would be the POS metal with reflectors. I installed the KTM powerparts plastic plate.

Edit-
Here's a pic from the Munn site

Thanks guys! ^^

I ended up drilling a couple of holes in the plate to line up with the existing fender (black part below the tail light) top holes. A couple of bolts, lock nuts and rubber washers and all is on.

I looked closer at the manual and I see that aluminum piece with the reflectors you were talking about. Dealer missed those . Just as well... I would have binned them anyway.

I will likely go for the tidy tail at some point as well.

I found it easy to get a piece of 1/4" thick rubber or such and cut it to the size of the plate. I attached it to the fender extension with 3 bolts & nyloc nuts and attached the plate to the rubber with 4 bolts. Cheap & easy.

Cheers,

I like that idea. I need to back the plate with something. It is a sharp piece of metal just hanging out in the wind at this point. If it was tightly backed by 1/4" piece of rubber it at least softens that edge.

I love this bike (just got back from first quick spin around the neighbourhood), but i figure dropping 10 large should get you an effective way to bolt a plate to it.

That is what I did too. Otherwise rocks hit the plate and eventually destroy it. I was lucky some friends noticed my plate was hanging on by one bolt on a ride! We were desert riding and the plate and lower fender(USA fender) were really beat up. Three of the holes where the plate attached were just gone. Now I have the euro rear fender and a tough backing for the plate.

valve question: Titanium?

Does anyone know if the intake valves on the 690 (2008) are Titanium? (Part No. KT5036030000) I have looked high and low, haven't found any hints regarding what they are made of in the OEM lit. & parts fiche, so they are probably stainless. However, I found one ADV post stating they are Ti, and my intakes seem to be loosing clearance in a way that makes me wonder.

Also: is it possible to remove the head with the engine in the frame?

Thanks!

They're stainless. They have hollow stems, and I wonder if maybe that leads to them wearing faster. Mine always needed shimming after the 1st inspection and when I did a valve job at 27K miles I had almost no seat left on one of the intakes. The upside is they're cheap to replace.

Thanks for that info.

Now, does anyone know if the head can be removed with the engine in the frame? The factory manual shows it floating in a nice white photo studio, out of the frame, but they don't make it clear if removing the engine is really necessary. Looks like it'll be a tight fit, but maybe possible?
