My US '12 690 has the standard cover. One less thing to catch a branch & get ripped off the bike!

These guys were the first ones to make the beefier brake pedal. Compared to the stock this pedal is a world of difference better. The bearings rotate very smoothly and the pedal is bomb proof...it would probably bend the frame if you hit it hard enough...which will of course be the least of your worries as your foot is much softer

I have had the cleanspeed unit since they first came out and all is still well.

Good to hear Seth, thanks for that.

different designs so i wouldnt say better.... RR has a more anglular design with webbing at the angles for strength.

the totals between the 2 with shipping to dirtbin is about the same (180 rand difference)

(im more of an umhlunga boy myself....)

for me there is a significant price difference as my shipping method is unconventional and also tax/customs free.

RR £162 inc delivery, customs free when delivered to a friend in EU

cleanspeed: £103 inc delivery

ill have to ask cleanspeed what the material spec is though...

It just depends on what type of vinyl the aftermarket company is using. If they use Convex, that stuff is thicker then the OEM vinyl KTM uses. If they are using standard wrap vinyl then of course it will be thinner then OEM. Obviously thicker vinyl is going to hold up to abuse better. That being siad, I am using standard wrap vinyl on my bike. Of course it costs me practically nothing to print out some more graphics if I do manage to tear mine up.

main odo not reading tenths

Wondering if I'm missing something. On my 2013, the odo reads full miles, not tenths. Both the trip odos show tenths, and the picture in the manual shows the main odo displaying tenths, but mine is displaying 6 numbers with no decimal.

It's not that the decimal is just missing as the last number is only changing when a full mile has been run.

Thanks

ok, thanks for the reply. Was just surprised as the manual has pictures that shows the main with tenths.

What are you guys using to hang a plate on the back of these things? Nothing they gave me will hold a conventionally mounted plate.

Going back to my wheel spacer being super-difficult to take out....
I took the sprocket hub to the dealer for a warranty claim and they took some pics and went ahead and called KTM.
The dealer got back to me with what KTM told them:
KTM said that the spacers in the sprocket hub are lightly pressed in. KTM does not recommend that I remove them, unless I'm removing the bearings as well.

That seems weird. First, it's not lightly pressed in. Second, every other bike in the world has you take out the spacers on both sides and lubed them.

Let me know if I'm mistaken. I may just lightly sand the spacers with some emery cloth. What do you think?

I had this problem before, and I kind of ignored it. Now, I'm chaning my rear tire again and I was determined to remove the leftmost spacer.
What a pain in the ass! I had to bang it out with a screwdriver and aluminum rod. I marred the spacer all up to holy hell!!



Whoops....not a big deal,really.....


Why was I so determined? I wanted to see how effed my bearing where.
They're ok, thankfully, but I did find some RUST!! Most bike aren't lubed for shit from the factory, and this bike is no exception....






Dammit. Atleast the bearings spin fine....
So then I greased those spacers up with some marine grease and attempted to stick them back into the sprocket hub.
It's a tight fit! What the hell?! I had to tap them in with a mallet kind of hard!!! This seems really weird. The spacers have always slid in and out for every bike I've had, including another KTM.
Is that what everybody else has to do??!!
This means that for the next tire change, I'm going to have to go through all this crap again!!
It's such a tight fit, I'll have to struggle to get the spacers out again (even if I lubed them up)...for rust cleaning/bearing checking and re-lubing.
This is how I feel right now:
