    It's called a standard dirt bike fender and fork guards.

    The 990 already has dual brake lines.

    There's a few threads on this, but...

    Here's mine (I got my info on the parts from various inmates who posted).

    KTM Front Fender (Black) 690 Enduro
    KTM Fork Protector Set (Black) 85 SX

    Just did one on a '12 990 - see "What have you done to your KTM today?". Have fun.

    I ordered all the parts today to put the 690 Black fender on the big girl. $107 for the parts. I thought that was pretty reasonable?

    Hi guys, are the 690 parts bolt on? Or do they require mods?

    Fender bolts straight on, but the fork guard require some convincing as the bolt holes don't quite line up. I decided to butcher the stock fender to retain the fork guard portion. Worked well and looks good, although the guards are not as tough/full converage as the 690 conversion will be. There's about a trillion posts on the high fender threads, so check them out before you start as all the lessons have been learned by inmates. Here's how mine turned out using the 690 SMC fender (was the only one I could find in white).

    This is on my to do list, but I just have to work out if I donate an arm or a leg and whether I give left or right side as it's farkin near $550 over here to buy it from KTM. i'll end up just sourcing what I need from Ebay or something.

    Should cost you about the equivalent of CDN/US $100 - highway robbery!

    No it's just KTM's ass ripping prices here in Australia, just so you know a new 2012 990 is about $21k here on a good deal.

    Does the fender just smash up against the brake line T at the lower triple?

    ? Brake line T is on top of the lower triple, fender is underneath the triple.

    Right, but it angles down and the fender is higher than the bottom of the triple. Fender is loose in the pic, tight looks like the bracket is going to snap. Also the brake lines are tight against the sides of the fender.

    Gotcha. I remember running into that as well. There are a couple options to help: One that I did was to invert the two front metal fender bushings so the front of the fender sits a little lower. Another option is to cut the plastic thing that holds the brake line T in half. Then you can rotate the two pieces outward to give more clearance. I didn't do the second one, I figured I'd see how everything was working before I did that- so far no problems.

    I will give that a shot, thank you. The suspension has been raised to 245mm and the brake lines are stock so that may become an issue as well.

    Add some 1/2" plastic spacers, sets it down far enough and no need to split the bracket! :clap
    Will rub a little but not enough to worry about.
