KTM Twins (Scuderia West ) has the OEM style oetiker size clamps in several sizes. They don't list them on their website. So you have to call them.

Good to know though I prefer non-oem as it's field serviceable. The oem is one and done - double dog ear something something. KTM has a 'special tool' you may acquire at a special price or screwdriver.

Yup that looks toast. BTW running electrical gear will not decrease stator life, but rather increase it since the electricity is being used vs. dissipated into heat.

OEM KTM handlebars and bar risers with Scotts sub mount on '08 690. But I want to upgrade my bark busters or handguards. And I'm thinking the HDB NexGen guards.

My next step (after wife cools off and forgets about this purchase), my next upgrade is BRP rubber submounts, or possibly Flexx Bars to help with the vibration.

First of all, will the BRP rubber mounts help to the tune of $180 worth of vibration?? And then, will they raise the bars more?? Will I have to leave out the risers?? Or go to low bars?? And surley this will all work with the HDB NexGen????

Just don't want to spend money now that won't work later on...

Well, I can answer some of your questions. First the pic. This is a 2013 with the stock 796 bar.


I'm running BRP's mount with an additional 1.25 inch riser for a total of just under 2 inches of rise over stock. Clutch line is snug, but ok. Throttle cable was not a problem at all. In fact I am able to continue to use the cable bracket mounted on the damper.

Is the anti vibe mount worth it? Can't quantify that for you. My feeling is why not. At my age, anything I can do that makes it easier to spend time on the bike, I'm all for. I also inserted the anti-vibe bar inserts that Paul sells when I installed the HDB hand guards. Again, my thinking was, why not? Surprisingly, the larger od of the heated grips has made life easier on my hands as well. After the KLR, I don't find this bike very vibey unless I'm near the end of life for the knobbies and am at highway speed, and even then, not bad. Pretty darn smooth on new tires lol.

I chose the "Ultimate Hand Guards", but I sure don't see why the NextGens wouldn't work. I wanted to be able to buy his computer mount and get the dash higher as well as have a place for my yet to be added lights, and the heat troller for my heated gear. Paul is excellent to deal with btw.

tool check

So, with it being cold, icy, snowy etc, I pulled the tools I'm carrying off the bike and am going through them. Figure I'm probably carrying stuff I don't need, and looking at picking up some fixitsticks while their sale is going on.

Question-I'm carrying a 27 Torx-does anyone know what it fits?
