Isaac,

You will be fine with the Agri tube there as MeinMotorrad says. Easy way to check this sort of thing is to run a string with a weight at the end on the left edge of the tube, should still clear the right edge of the swing arm.


Nowwhat,

This is going to be one trick bike when are done, really nice!!


Gen,

The FH020 is also excellent, just more bulky because of the connectors. Good thing is that Mr. Eastern Beaver must be around the corner from you? I would definitely get rid of the stock brown plug, so you will still need to extend your stator wires, but that's not hard to do.

Thanks!
The hose, one end was 7mm ID the other was just over 5mm ID.

looking at the parts fische for the swing arm it shows stop discs are only fitted to the LH side bearings, can anyone confirm or is this a fische misprint?

I ask as when i took the bearings out it only had 1 stop disc and not 2 as shown in the fische.

repair kit comes with 2 stop discs.

Agreed. I will stick with my FH020 and fab a new bracket. Jim from Eastern Beaver is indeed relatively nearby. Years ago I once went down to his place (when he was in a previous location and I was on my old FZ-1) and he helped me install an H4 headlight relay kit. His stuff is really great quality.

Hard on cast aluminum pieces

Today I broke the mounting point for the luggage rack on the left footpeg mount. I seem to be stressing the cast pieces on my bike past the point of no return.



I think it is time for me to get the billet connecting link for the suspension before its to late.

Oof. Isn't that going to further stress the remaining mount? What options are there besides a wholesale replacement?

Crap Noah-Are you still riding two-up?

Hope you figure out a way to get it sorted.

Ride Safe Bro!

I don't know if cast iron can be welded, otherwise it's going to be a relatively expensive part...

2008 690 ENDURO (AU/GB)
7650303804401S FOOTREST BRACKET L/S 08
115 in Germany (about 160USD)

You're lucky it's not the other side, the brake side had a lot of changes over the years, so changing that bracket would probably have required changing a few other things as well.

What's with the 2 nuts on that bolt between the cast part and the rack? BTW Cast can be welded.

With friends like Lukas, you don't need a KTM dealer

There is a threaded steel insert that was spinning. I installed studs because they don't come loose like the bolts use to. the nuts were just spacers to meet where the rack mounted.

I'm 2 up still for a bit longer.

Do you think it was mainly due to the 2-Up? Riding 2-up is the only thing I'm sketchy about on the bike.

Time for some billet foot peg mounts...

Yep, all USA models came stock with MT21's. I'm assuming Canada is the same way too.

I know all European models are coming with Sahara's as well.

Perfect, thanks guys. I'll check with a string just in case. The MSR bottle is almost all the way full, so the sloshing in there is minimal. To keep the MSR bottle from rotating/spinning in the tube holder (which wears all the red paint off and leaves little metal deposits behind, I jam a strip of rubber (from a cut up radiator hose) between the bottle and tube to take up slack. So far it seems to work great.
